How are you guys? My office location has been shifted from this week to Embassy Tech Village and I was busy with the process. The monitors, lockers and charging sockets have still not been shifted. So we are working with limited resources. Also we had induction program yesterday with complimentary breakfast and lunch ???? . So I didn’t get much time to blog. This is the first blog post am writing in my new office. Hope it turns out to be good 🙂 . Here am introducing you to another new natural brand and will be reviewing their handmade soap – Ohria Ayurveda Haldi, Besan and Marigold Skin Brightening The Traditional Bath Soap. Let’s see how it fares. Ohria Ayurveda is a new luxury, ayurvedic beauty brand in the market. Let’s see a small introduction about the brand before proceeding with the review.

Ohria Ayurveda Haldi, Besan and Marigold Soap comes in a eco-friendly paper packaging. The brand has taken care to ensure the design and labels of the packaging ensures a luxury and classical touch. I really like them.
Ohria Ayurveda Haldi, Besan and Marigold Soap looks yellow in color as it contains all yellow ingredients – turmeric, chickpea and marigold. It has an amazing fragrance of marigold flowers mainly with a hint of besan. Most turmeric based products have a strong smell of turmeric. And I thought this too will have that. But here the floral scent of marigold flowers is more prominent. Which makes it very refreshing and calming. I simply love its fragrance.
As its free from SLS and other lathering agents, Ohria Ayurveda Haldi, Besan and Marigold Soap lathers only moderately. The lather is soft and gentle. It cleanses skin well but doesn’t dry out skin. The soap doesn’t melt much and lasts for quite some time.
Ohria Ayurveda Haldi, Besan and Marigold Soap somehow feels like a ubtan to me. The texture, the scent and the effects resemble a ubtan. After taking bath, I feel like I have used a ubtan on my skin. A ubtan in a soap form 😀 . Sounds interesting, but I don’t know how else to describe it. It feels very different from the other soaps I have used.
With regular use of Ohria Ayurveda Haldi, Besan and Marigold Soap, I do observe some skin brightening and glow. Turmeric and besan cleanses and brightens skin. Marigold soothes the skin and prevents drying.
As the name suggests, Ohria Ayurveda Haldi, Besan and Marigold Soap gives a royal, traditional bath experience. The soaps feels of pure and high quality ingredients. If you don’t have the time to indulge in using ubtans while bathing, then this is a good option.
Does it satisfy all its claims?
Yes, it satisfies all its claims.

Ohria Ayurveda Haldi, Besan and Marigold Soap is a truly traditional, royal bath experience that you can have at home. Am happy that the brand has combined the ancient ayurvedic knowledge into a modern day soap. The quality of the product is definitely high-end. I find this ubtan soap to be a refreshing difference from modern varieties of soap. You can give it a try if you love trying luxury ayurvedic products.
