KAMA AYURVEDA FIRST IMPRESSION REVIEW



Kama Ayurveda as the name itself suggests is an Organic and Ayurvedic brand that is chemical and artificial fragrance free . Products from this brand were on my shopping list for such a long time ,  but due to its scarce availability online and limited retail outlets i had a hard time getting my hands on it . Ordered it last year in December from a renowned online website that delivers you a curated box of high end cosmetic brands every month , but still not aware what they have been doing with my order so far . No updates from their side . Highly disappointed !! You don't expect such irresponsible attitude from such renowned websites :(

So, I had to search online for Kama Ayurveda nearest retail counter and found out that Empire store at Chandigarh sector 17 is stocking some of their products . So , went to their store and picked some of Kama Ayurveda goodies right away :)

Products that i bought from Kama Ayurveda  :
  1. Kama Ayurveda Bringadi Intense Oil Treatment 
  2. Kama Ayurveda Rose Jasmine Face Cleanser 
  3. Kama Ayurveda Nimba Purifying Soap
KAMA AYURVEDA BRINGADI INTENSE HAIR OIL TREATMENT
                                                                 

Kama Ayurveda Bringadi oil claims to prevent hair loss , dandruff and premature greying . It also claims to provide natural conditioning to your hair post head wash with a mild shampoo on leaving it for at least thirty minutes into your hair.
I had used Bringadi oil for my hair earlier also but they were from other organic brands . Bringadi oils do have some strong smell but i prefer these over any other artificial fragrance oils in fancy bottles that do more harm than anything good to your hair . One just need to massage Brigandi oil in your scalp for good ten minutes with light hands and leave it for minimum half an hour and maximum 1 hour .Wash your hair after one hour as Bringadi oils contain really strong natural products that should not be kept for more than an hour . Kama Ayurveda Bringadi oil comes with a nozzle cap for easy flow of the product . It doesn't contain any artificial or chemical ingredients and smell is less strong as compared to the Bringadi Oils from other brands that i have used earlier . I skipped using conditioner after using this oil and it did conditioned them well as it claims on its cover . Lets see if it delivers more good results as it claims in the long run . Would be updating you on that too .

KAMA AYURVEDA ROSE JASMINE FACE CLEANSER 




Kama Ayurveda Rose Jasmine face cleanser claims to cleanse your skin gently with natural ingredients it contains . Ideal for removing light makeup from skin and contains Aloe Vera that helps in healing and smoothing of skin . Vetiver and block cumin in it have anti bacterial properties and Jojoba seed oil helps in skin softness , rejuvenation , minimizing fine lines and promoting skin suppleness . It contains essential oil of rose and jasmine that moisturizes skin and also reduce skin marks and scarring .

Kama Ayurveda rose and jasmine face cleaner comes in a round plastic bottle with a dispenser pump that brings out the right amount of product without any wastage . You just need two pumps of it for proper facial cleansing . Doesn't produce much lather and it has very mild rosy fragrance . I personally don't like rose and jasmine based products ( not a fan of their fragrance ) but the store only had rose and jasmine face wash so had to buy it and i am glad that i did . This face wash is really light on skin and doesn't stretches out your skin post wash . I have very sensitive skin when it comes to using face washes or moisturisers . So , i rarely risk to experiment with these two products for my skin . But this face wash has not caused any acne or pimple so far as i am using it for past one week . Its not at all harsh on skin and cleanses skin really well without drying it . These days i am not having any major skin issues so can't dictate whether it treats skin problems like acne or pimples or not but i can assure you that it doesn't invite any of these either . People with sensitive skin can go for it for sure .

KAMA AYURVEDA NIMBA PURIFYING SOAP 



Kama Ayurveda Nimba soap is a handmade Ayurvedic soap ideal for sensitive skin . To be honest i bought it thinking Nimba means lemon and i love lemon based products but actually this one is a Neem soap lol . Idea behind using soaps from Ayurvedic brands is to keep our skin free from harmful chemicals that generally non organic cosmetic soaps have but this soap from Kama Ayurveda contains chemical substances like caustic soda , sulphur and perfume and also TFM in it is 65% that declares it as a second category soap . To know about TFM read it HERE . It again disappoints with the way it smells . Totally a turn off when it comes to fragrance but if you have sensitive skin or other skin issues , you can use it for its medicinal properties . Otherwise i would not suggest you to go for it.

RATING  ( KAMA AYURVEDA )     4 / 5

I am quite happy with Kama Ayurveda Bringadi Oil and Rose Jasmine face cleanser so far and would be trying more products from this brand in future also .  Any more queries regarding the products above you can ask me in the comments section below or you can also mail me @nainika.mittal85@gmail.com
