Read on to know more.

The face pack comes in powder form packed in a simple pouch. Once you open the packet, you need to transfer the contents to an airtight container. I find it highly inconvenient. I wish for the price point, they can improve the packaging to a zipper pouch.
The face pack powder looks light brown in color and has a mild ayurvedic smell. The smell is not strong or bothersome. I tried using this face pack in different ways, mixing with rose water, milk, curd and milk cream. And for me, I find it works best with milk cream as I have dry skin. With other products, it tends to dry out my skin excessively.
I take about a teaspoon of powder and mix with fresh milk cream. I apply a thin layer on my face and leave on for about 10 minutes. I use it on alternate days. Directions say for weekly use to leave on for 20 minutes and daily use 5 minutes. Since I use alternate days, I keep on for 10 minutes by which it dries completely. You can feel a slight itching sensation when the pack is on the face. But then that is the case with most ayurvedic face packs. It shows the ingredients are potent and working their magic. I then lightly scrub in circular motions and wash off. The powder is not too fine and comes in a mild granular form which is perfect for light scrubbing.
After washing off, I can see my skin is super bright. It removes all tan in first use itself. It also deeply cleanses and detoxifies skin of all impurities leaving it clean and fresh. My skin feels so smooth and soft. Also, my face felt firmer and tighter. I noticed it also subdued one or two breakouts I was having. The effects of the face pack lasts for 2-3 days. It controlled the oil secretion and formation of whiteheads and pimples. My face looked smooth and matte for the following 3 days. As mentioned in the pack, my face looked really ‘forever young’. ???? If you are looking for a long-lasting effect, there is always another option like botox skin products such as botox injections. You will surely need to know more about how to make your botox last longer, if you are ready to try it.
I have also been using this face pack as a spot-treatment since it helps to detox and deep cleanse skin. Whenever I see a pimple appearing, I just mix a tiny amount with water and apply on the spot and leave it for around 2 hours. After washing it away, I can feel the pimple has reduced considerably and by next morning almost vanished without leaving any scars.
I feel this face pack is best suited for oily and combination skin as it deep cleanses skin and controls oil production, whiteheads and pimples. Dry skin people can use it in their weekly regime by mixing with milk cream.
Does it satisfy its claims?
Yes, it satisfies all its claims.
What I like:
* 100% natural and ayurvedic.
* Gives quick results from first use itself.
* Deep cleanses and detoxifies skin.
* Controls oil secretion thereby reduction in whiteheads and pimples also.
* Gives totally smooth and fresh matte looking skin.
* Removes tan and makes skin bright.
* Firms and tightens skin.
* Can be used as a spot treatment to reduce pimples.
* Contains potent ayurvedic ingredients which work effectively.
* Free from chemicals, preservatives and artificial colours.
Suggestions for improvements:
* Packaging can be improved to a zipper pouch.
Would I recommend?
Yes, definitely. For all skin types. Dry skin people can mix with milk cream while others can mix with curd or rose water.
Would I repurchase?
Yes, after my current stock of face packs get over.
Value for money?
Its worth it as its 100% natural and contains potent ayurvedic ingredients. One pouch comes for around 10 uses. If you use it weekly once, it will come for two and a half months. If you use it weekly twice, it will come for a month.
