Kama Ayurveda. A brand I don’t have to be in any particular need to buy from, it always hits the spot. Authentic Ayurvedic, I’ve often touted it as my favourite skincare brand ever (a claim I still stand behind) and it is in fact only one of two brands that I repurchase from (Forest Essentials being the other). So when I spotted the mask it took about a nanosecond to travel from shelf to basket. With promises of nourishing, deep cleansing and purifying skin, I’ve put it to the test over the past week. So how did it fare?
Kama Ayurveda doesn’t suggest any frequency of usage, so as I like to change things up a bit, I have used it twice in a week and really liked what it does. It’s a powder that needs to be mixed with water to form a paste. What is interesting is that it becomes very similar in texture to the Natio Aromatherapy Clay And Plant Face Mask Purifier. It becomes quite balmy, maybe not quite as balmy as the Natio, but it gets a thick creamy texture that stays on your skin. It is a lot lighter than the Face Mask Purifier so if you don’t like anything too heavy, you will probably prefer it. It really feels like it seals in moisture whilst injecting a whole load of firming and purifying goodness.
Both times I have used this I’ve been left with super clean, hydrated skin that has a really rejuvenated look. I am a fan, so I am interested to use this daily and see what it can do for me. I think this would be amazing on a long haul flight. As you wash it off, it has an instant brightening and smoothing effect on the skin so I’ll update if I have any news for you. Also, it smells really lovely – softly herbal and sweet. Its aroma is lighter than the Face Mask Purifier.
