Hey lovlies I am back with another product from same brand kama Ayurveda and today I will be reviewing Lavanya Natural Plant Mask. Well I have purchased Ayurvedic facial box from Mumbai airport which comes with 3 products i.e. Pure rose water (which I have reviewed in my last blog), then Mridul soap free face cleanser and last is Lavanya Face mask (which I will be reviewing it today). As the name suggest Kama Ayurveda I am sure this mask would have all the natural properties which will be beneficial for skin. The best thing about this product is it is free from preservatives, colourants, fragrances, petrochemicals. As pure rose water has really won my heart, let have a closer look on this product too 😊

My Experience with Kama Ayurveda Pure Rose Water-

This beauty comes in a cylindrical steel jar packaging with a round lid on it plus they have also provided small wooden spoon to take the product out and it has really impressed me. The jar contains all the details of the product mentioned on it plus they have tried to give a touch of a khadi effect to jar making it appear pretty cool. The product comes in a plastic packaging which adds a hygiene measure. I felt the product is not travel friendly as it can spill out anytime because of the round lid which is not that tight.

When you take out the product from the plastic you will notice that powder is finely milled and have a crumbly texture. The color of the product is same like multani mitti or say dust color. I personally didn’t like the fragrance when took the product out. I like to mix this product with rose water of same brand for more better effect.

Application- I have taken 3 spoon of powder and mixed well with rose water and made it a fine paste so that it makes my application easy (Note- here spoon means wooden spoon which I got with this product) I have cleaned my face with pure rose water and then applied this mask on my face going little bit down on my neck and left it for 25 mins until it dried completely.

While the mask was drying up completely I could sense some tingling effect on skin speacially near the jaw line and forehead as if my skin was getting tight. Once it has completely dried I removed product with my hand and then washed it off with normal water. I bet you, you can see the effect after 1st use. I felt my skin supple, soft and smooth plus it was glowing. This mask has really done its job well; it has removed my dead skin, purified my skin and deeply cleanse it, making it appear bright and fresh. I use this product just once in a week as it has dried up my skin though it claims it balances PH level but after washing my face I felt my skin was tight and dried too So had too moisturised my skin. I just love its effects as my skin thanks me for using a natural product. Till now I have used it thrice and I am highly impressed by its after result.

After wash

Overall, Kama Ayurveda Lavanya Natural Plant Mask is suitable for any skin type. I am very much impressed by its after effect as it stand on what it claims except balancing the Ph level as I felt my skin dried up after wash. I am sure oily skin type people would have loved this product more than dry skin type, I hope you know what I mean here. As I don’t have acne or pore problems I can’t really comment on that part but I am pretty sure that it would work on that thing too as it has reduced my pigments and dark spots. If you are looking for a 100% natural face mask which doesn’t cause any harm to your skin, you can give it a try.

Pros-

  • 100% natural.
  • Cleanses deeply.
  • Deeply cleanse and purify skin
  • Supple, smooth and soft skin
  • Brightens up the skin after wash
  • Easy application
  • Powder is finely milled

  • Dried up my skin
  • Fragrance not good

Will I buy this product again?

Maybe not sure.
