AuraVedic Ritual Cleansing UBTAN Dry Mask Sandal Saffron Turmeric Review
|Auravedic Ritual Cleansing Ubtan Dry Mask Sandal Saffron Turmeric Review|
Many times I wonder if I would be even go back to those early teenage time when there was no concept of face wash in my life and I religiously used ubtan to cleanse my face (and body!). I used a humble mix of sandalwood powder, Bengal gram flour, and turmeric. I tried that again when I was in senior years of my engineering but stopped that later when I started working. I do go back to them but stop. When I discovered Kama Ayurveda Mridul, I thought that maybe those days are back but laziness dragged me back to face washes.
Recently, I discovered this inexpensive ubtan from Auravedic that has become part of my morning routine. It is loaded with natural ingredients and being a dry powdered mask, free of parabens and chemicals!
Price: Rs 150 for 50g

Available at Amazon.
Ingredients: Extracts of Red Sandalwood, Saffron, Neem, Basil, Bengal gram, Methi seed, Ashwagandha roots, Orange peel, Almond, Nagarmotha, Kapurkachri, Jethimadh, Rose petal powder, Amba Haldi (turmeric).
In short, it is far more fancier than what I used.
How I Use: For morning, I make a thin paste with rose water or cold water and apply it on my face massaging in upward stoke. Let it set as long as I brush my teeth. Wash it off with splashes of water. If I use it at night after I used oil for to remove makeup, I use a thicker paste. Let it set and wash it off as I use it to scrub off my oil. I never let it dry completely. This is one tip I got from my college friend that you should never let any ubtan or products with bengal gram flour dry completely on your face. Otherwise, it might dry out your skin completely. Also, it will be difficult to wash it off which will do more harm than good.
Effects: It completely cleans my skin. My skin feel free, fresh, and unclogged. The sandalwood gives a mild cooling effect (not like mint products though!) and the smell lingers for some time as well. I love that I can use it at various levels and mix it with various ingredients to get various results. So, it will suit all skin types.

Overall: If you are lazy to make your own ubtan then get the Auravedic Ritual Cleansing Ubtan. But, from whom are we hiding the truth? We know that it will be difficult to make your own with so many ingredients. As the price is pocket-friendly, I suggest that you get it. It will be cheaper than going on a hunt to get all the ingredients. Also, you need very less on a daily basis.
One Important Tip: As it is free of parabens, it will easily lose its freshness and might even get fungal growth. Please keep the tub sealed and away from moisture. Please do not keep it in your bathroom. If the needed transfer some of it in a small container and keep that near your wash basin or in your bathroom. Use a spoon/spatula to take out the powder.
The same goes for every skincare product that comes in powder form.
