I love SAMAYA products. I have been using the Vata products for 2 years since meeting the founder at a Revital store in London. She kindly gave me some samples and I had them tested on a Bioresonance machine as to how beneficial they were for me. After spending hundreds of pounds on expensive generic and even other organic brands that had a negative effect, I was so happy that the machine said they gave my skin 100% improvement.
I have on and off suffered with acne, sensitive skin and dark circles and the SAMAYA products have super rejuvenated and brightened my skin. The facial oil I could never be without! Thank you Abida! I love the feeling of putting nourishing goodness on my skin!
I discovered SAMAYA a couple of years ago at Whole Foods, Kensington and thought that it was incredibly impressive. I have been using the cleanser ever since and absolutely love it! The skincare industry has been crying out for something like your product for ages!
I came across SAMAYA’s Pitta Anti-Ageing Cream at John Croyden & Bell in London in January this year. I purchased it alongside the Pitta Treatment Oil.
SAMAYA’s Pitta cream has helped smooth out the fine lines around my eyes and slightly lessened my dark circles too. Hence, I am reordering the same product. Try it for yourself and see the difference!
I have fair, freckly and sensitive skin and am prone to rosacea. This is why I started with SAMAYA’s Pitta supplements in October 2017, having seen an article in a magazine. The supplements have been successful in calming down my skin and so I continue with them. In fact, I have been using them for two-and-a-half years now!
I absolutely love the natural, non-abrasive exfoliant, and now also find myself using the Vata moisturiser all day, every day.
I was lucky to meet Abida, the founder of Samaya in London. After an in-depth chat/consultation I was sold on the ethics and Ayurvedic principles of the company and bought the Pitta anti-ageing cream and oil. They smell and feel amazing!
Over the years I confess to having bought a multitude of various lotions and potions from big beauty brands that claim to work miracles. After using Samaya products for over 6 months now, I am well and truly hooked. My skin did not react adversely to the cream or to the oil at the start like it has with other brands.
I use the cream every morning and mix the cream and a tiny bit of oil together at night. My skin feels amazing. After being on holiday, I up the oil if I feel my skin needs it. I use it on my face and neck. The rosacea that I had on one cheek has completely calmed down and I’m often asked what skincare I use by friends who have noticed a smoother and clearer complexion.
I would not hesitate to recommend Samaya to anyone. I have re-ordered and have to say the customer service is also excellent. I like the fact that I am supporting a home grown vegan business and as you may have gathered, I am a true fan and will continue to be so.
I went into John Bell and Croyden last week, looking for a gentle cleanser for my sore eyes that water in the cold wind. It was my good fortune to meet Abida there and be introduced to Samaya. Although Abida was a persuasive advocate for the range and I liked what I heard about the ingredients and the philosophy, it was mostly the wonderful smells that led me to purchase her products. I have been using the Kapha cream, cleanser and oil for the past five days and I am totally in love with them. The smell is heavenly, both earthy and divine at the same time, and the products feel beautiful on my skin. Amazingly, my eyes have been very comfortable, neither dry, nor sore nor watering since the moment I started using Samaya.
I have since purchased the Vata oil to mix in as well because I loved the rose smell too. I think I will be visiting the Pitta range in due course as well. It sounds a bit over the top, but I positively look forward to my skincare routine now because these products are so lovely.
Since I moved to London last year I started to get sick more frequently and ended up with a bad cold in Dec-Jan. A friend recommended the Kapha supplements as he has been on them for over two years and has not once even caught a cold despite travelling weekly on airplanes for work.
Since I started on the Kapha supplements I am less tired as they give me an energy-boost and have really strengthened my immune system. They are also great for digestive health, hair, skin and nails so I would highly recommend them.
I love these products! They smell divine, are lightweight and my skin feels so fresh and smooth after application. I use Kapha and Vata depending on the season.
I bought my mother, who is in her 70s, the Pitta range and although she has genetically great skin they have definitely added a glow! Her eyes would water and be irritated with the other high-end products I would buy her, but not with these. Thank you for creating such a natural but effective range!
I had to write as SAMAYA’s products are brilliant. I will be back to Fenwick this week to purchase the cleanser (it’s beautiful) and the moisturising cream (a dream also)! No doubt I will get the oil too. I absolutely love the range, best beauty brand!
SAMAYA products are so versatile: I didn’t know that the cleanser can be a mask. Nor that the oil can be mixed with the cream. Also that I can put it all around my eyes. Great!!
I love the moisturiser for two reasons. My skin is the best it has been for a long time. The redness has definitely reduced. The dry build up in areas is no more! Plus and amazingly, after using it as a moisturiser, I have then mixed it with my foundation and it stops the foundation sitting in any lines. It gives a lighter dewy look. I’ve tried this with other moisturisers and it doesn’t work.
I bought most of the Pitta skincare range. I think I will try the supplements next. I wanted to see how the skincare worked. Am really enjoying these products. Fabulous.
I first tried SAMAYA at Whole Foods Kensington last weekend and just wanted to say a massive thank you! The skincare products are incredible. I’ve been using the Pitta exfoliator every night and the supplements. Within days it’s visibly cleared all my blemishes and I even got a compliment about how clear my skin was looking today! Looking forward to trying more products.
I started using Samaya products earlier this year. The Vata range is the perfect fit for my skincare needs. Bizarre that the profile is so precise even down to the poor circulation in my hands!
I particularly like the Vata Hydrating Cleanser – it removes my eye makeup easily and is creamy not dry. I usually apply and leave on for a few minutes to hydrate my skin after a long day.
The Vata Anti-Ageing moisturiser has definitely reduced lines around my eyes and I use it with the Vata oil at night.
The Vata Exfoliant is amazing – it works overnight and really tightens up your skin and reduces lines.
I recommend the range for people like me with fairly dry, sensitive skin. I am a regular customer. The simplicity is a key selling point with the cleanser also moisturising and no need for eye cream it’s all-in-one with the moisturiser.
Happy customer. BTW, the product delivery is amazing – I live in London and have received within 24 hours!
I recently bought some Pitta skincare products at Fenwicks and have been so impressed with them. They smell incredible and my skin feels soft and hydrated. I find it a really calming and nourishing experience using SAMAYA’s products.
I received a sample of the cleanser which I used up quickly and thought I’d use up my old cleanser before purchasing SAMAYA’s but I couldn’t wait because it’s so brilliant!
I’m so glad that SAMAYA Ayurveda’s products are getting so much recognition (41 awards to date!) because they fully deserve it.
I discovered SAMAYA in Whole Foods. I was looking for a cream for my dry skin that is prone to dryness and psoriasis. My “dosha” or type is Vata. I bought the Anti-Ageing cream and face oil and began using the cream and oil the very same evening. Unbelievably, and I don’t say this often, my skin the next morning had responded to the products beautifully. My psoriasis had lessened and my skin felt silky to the touch!! I tend to mix a couple of drops of the cream together with only one drop of the oil and massage it into my face. The result is instant silkiness without the greasiness you get with oil.
I have been using the products for 6 months and love them. I’ve recommended it to my friends and my daughter who also suffers from acute dermatitis. The results speak for themselves. Thank you SAMAYA!
I have been using SAMAYA products for around 3 months now and I am amazed at the difference they have made to my skin. I use the cleanser, moisturiser and serum. My complexion is much clearer and I now have a much wanted dewy appearance to my skin. I have been so pleased with the products I make special journeys to buy them.
I recently introduced my boyfriend to the Pitta range. He has oily red skin and is prone to acne. I was confident SAMAYA would help. Within a couple of months we have both been surprised at the difference using the cleanser and exfoliator has made. The redness has reduced and the skin has cleared up of spots considerably.
I love the ingredients that go into the products but also love what is kept out. I highly recommend SAMAYA.
I discovered SAMAYA at Fenwick of Bond Street in London a few months ago when the founder introduced me to the products and I ended up buying and trying them. Since then, SAMAYA skincare (Pitta) is my ‘go to’ and now I have just renewed my stocks since I will be due with a baby in couple of weeks. My skin looks much more hydrated, brighter and nourished – like I have been having a hydra-advance professional facial treatment every day!
My daughter and I discovered SAMAYA in the John Bell & Croyden store in London. The brand’s founder who introduced us to this line was great and very enthusiastic. Her skin looked amazing so we gave it a try and both my daughter and I agree that the skin improvement is very noticeable. I don’t think I can say that with such confidence about any other product I have ever used!
I’ve just discovered these products and had a trial facial at Fenwick in Bond Street. It was superb. My skin felt amazingly hydrated and soft afterwards. What I really liked was the absence of strong scents and abrasive products. I loved the hints of jasmine but didn’t feel like I was overpowered by product. The cleansing balm, exfoliant, cream and oil are super. It’s a simple range which travels well. I would highly recommend them. Well done to Abida for coming up with something really standout. I’ll be back.
I’m in love with my Pitta oil!! My skin has never looked better!! I’ve always been obsessed with great skin care. I have also grown up influenced by Ayurveda and its benefits. It’s great to finally have a beautiful product that combines both! I’m excited to try the Vata oil next as I’m a bit of a combination of Vata/Pitta”.
I absolutely have fallen in love with SAMAYA products! I heard about them in May when I was visiting London with my friend. We went to Whole Foods (Kensington), where the brand’s Founder told us about the products. I was also heavily pregnant at the time. I bought the Pitta cream and just recently ran out of it and placed an order on SAMAYA’s website right away to replace it. I have loooooved it so much!
I think my dosha is Pitta-Vata. Jasmine has a divine smell, absolutely gorgeous and much more appealing than the rose, but now when the winter is coming here in Finland, I think I am curious to try Vata, maybe even Kapha. I don’t have an example of that, but I would be interested to try that. Winters here are cold, and they take their toll on the skin. I have noticed that I am looking for more ‘warmer’ scents now. I have been testing the oil samples included with my order too, and in this changing weather, it has been really good for my skin!
I do love my Pitta cream also! I call it The Cinderella Cream, as it takes 5 years off of my age! Your face products have been absolutely amazing and the best I have ever used. The exfoliators and cleansers are a new territory for me, so I am super excited to try them.
I am also very happy that there aren’t any bad stuff in them. Also Ayurveda is something that I have been interested in more and more as years go by. The power of herbs and spices is amazing! There are even days, when I am playing with the idea of starting to import these products to Finland, as they are so good. I also love the fact that they are so versatile (face cream/eye cream, cleanser/hydration mask, etc)! Just what I look for in a product!
Once again, thank you so much for inventing such genius products!
I met Abida in Fenwicks and bought her Pitta supplements. She kindly gave me some samples of her cleanser, exfoliant, face cream and facial oil. I had chosen the type by smell and it turned out that this matched my skin type which is sensitive and occasionally subject to outbreaks of rosacea. Having used the samples over four or five days, I did see a difference, not least in my skin’s sensitivity and smoothness. They have had a wonderful, calming effect on my rosacea. I have had problems getting skin care products which work and don’t inflame my skin so I ordered the full size products within the week! I am very grateful indeed to have found the products.
SAMAYA’s Pitta Treatment Oil has totally transformed my skin. I have always suffered with dry skin patches around the lower part of my face and have tried numerous products to keep these at bay with little success. Since using SAMAYA’s Treatment Oil every night my dry patches have completely disappeared – I noticed a difference after just a couple of days! For the first time my skin feels evenly nourished and hydrated in all areas. It also applies like a dream and the beautiful delicate natural aroma of jasmine is so calming and tranquil for use before bed.
Since using SAMAYA’s Vata Hydrating Cleanser my skin has transformed into the skin I always strived for. (thank you!!)
I’ve since purchased SAMAYA’s Vata Anti-Ageing Oil which feels like silk and gives my skin a lovely glow.
I was previously using an organic beauty brand’s anti-aging moisturiser for years – and after having a facial yesterday (using my own products as I have allergies) my facialist mentioned it wasn’t doing anything for my skin. She preferred the Vata cleanser and serum for my skin. So I decided to also buy the Vata Anti-Ageing moisturiser to achieve the full benefits of the range.
I’m completely converted to SAMAYA now, and looking forward to trying the new exfoliant!
With a smooth but light consistency, SAMAYA’s Pitta cleanser is my daily staple for hydrating dehydrated and sensitive skin, especially in ever changing weather. SAMAYA’s Pitta cleanser has become a trusty travel companion for balancing skin after long haul flights. It is also very effective as a makeup remover and a first cleanse. I thoroughly recommend it for those looking to incorporate an all round hydrating, balancing and soothing cleanser and a gentle approach to hormonal fluctuations. This keeps my skin supple all month round!
I was reluctant to incorporate face oils given my sensitive skin but I have found a few drops of the Pitta Anti-Ageing Treatment Oil on damp skin at night leaves me glowing and hydrated throughout the next day. This has calmed minor blemishes and balanced sebum when changing climate. It is a good option for those who want an instant dewy base.
I am a repeat customer and can recommend SAMAYA to anyone looking for results driven and ethical skincare, without any
harsh chemicals or synthetics.
Living in Paris for over 15 years now, I have used all of the high-end French skincare products. However, none of them comes even close to the effect of the Samaya Pitta line. I have been using the Pitta anti-ageing cream and skin oil, as well as the supplements over the last four months and I have just reordered all of them as well as the cleanser. My skin feels perfectly smooth and looks very bright, as a result of which I received lots of compliments (including from my most critical friends). It is impressive how a 100% natural product, generates effects that well surpass those of classical beauty products.
After using the Kapha Anti-Aging Treatment Oil the result of my skin is incredible. Strangers are telling me that I’m glowing! Never – have I ever – received so many compliments about my skin. Living in Australia, I am used to having dry skin, however, I noticed a difference from the very first application. It has been 1 month now and my husband uses the Pitta oil. We are aging together yet looking more youthful every day! Thank you SAMAYA.
I recently used SAMAYA’s Kapha oil and was really pleased with the non-greasy feel and the way it was absorbed into my skin. I used it every night for a few weeks and at the end, my skin looked and felt a lot more hydrated with a fresh, more ‘brightened-up’ look. I especially loved the sandalwood aroma, and would highly recommend this product.
My partner and I were in London in January this year. We were lucky enough to meet Abida and try her amazing products. We both loved the Kapha cream, the smell, texture and how it felt on the skin. After a month or so of arriving back in home in Australia we ran out and both noticed a BIG difference. Our skin had been feeling hydrated and smooth. We went back to using what we had at home and there was a vast difference in how our skin looked and felt. So, I am very happy to say that I have repurchased and am looking forward to using the SAMAYA products again and for our skin to feel nourished and supported. Thank you!
I had a facial (admittedly after ages) the other day. First time in my adult life the therapist said that my skin wasn’t dehydrated. It’s not because I’m drinking more water, I know I’m really bad at that. #lovemysamayaoil.
I have religiously been using the SAMAYA Pitta oil every night for the past six months, and never have so many people complimented me on how fresh my skin looks. Thank you Abida for introducing me to such a fabulous product. I love the smell. I love the way it feels. I love what it does. Pure genius!
SAMAYA’s Vata facial oil makes my skin glow and renders it baby soft, miraculously smoothing away fine lines! I either mix it in with my moisturiser or apply to the face just after cleansing. My skin tends to react if cosmetics are too heavy and also tends to get dehydrated, so I am very happy to have discovered the fabulous Vata facial oil which strikes the right balance.
When reading reviews concerning skin care, it never ceases to amaze me that it’s always relatively young women that make their views known when I, at 64 am more interested if the lotions and potions will truly benefit my mature skin. I hope therefore that my feedback will be of interest to a broader range of potential users.
I was introduced to the SAMAYA range by my 34 year old, very discerning daughter, who raved to me about this wonderful new cream she was using and the very engaging, personal customer care she received from the company founder. I subsequently consulted with the founder of the SAMAYA range myself, and after first trying samples of the Pitta range, switched to and am still using , the Vata cleanser, cream and oil.
It took me several weeks to work out just the right ratio of cream and oil but my persistence paid off and I quickly started seeing improvements in skin quality. As it can be difficult to be objective with oneself, it was like music to my ears, when arriving in Australia after a +20 hour flight, my sisters commented on how fresh and radiant my skin looked.
I’d also like to mention that the Pitta cream is now being used by my 49 year old son-in-law and proof that the cream works wonders also for men came when his 4 year old broke a near full bottle on the bathroom floor and his 7 year old brother asked his father what he’d do now as his wrinkles would come back without the use of his special cream! My husband is also a convert and his skin loves the Kapha cream.
So, if you are interested in using a natural cream that works, regardless of your age or gender then I encourage you to try SAMAYA. Experiment with the quantity used as everyone’s skin is different and do give yourself time to work out what is best for your own personal needs. As for me and my household we are happy to have discovered SAMAYA.
I discovered SAMAYA on a recent trip to London where I tried the Kapha cleanser and facial oil. I was most impressed with how the cleanser could also serve as a hydration mask and how the Kapha oil was was so light and easily absorbed yet so effective. SAMAYA makes my skin look fantastic and provides the extra hydration I need without making my skin oily.
I bought SAMAYA’s Vata cleanser and oil two weeks ago and I wanted to tell you that they are great. I have tried so many products and they just sit on top of my skin. That is why I was so hesitant at first but when I tried your products they actually left my skin moisturised. Thank you again!
As a strong believer in the powerful benefits of 100% natural skincare, I searched for the perfect brand for my skin for quite a few years but nothing has even come close SAMAYA Ayurveda.
I used the Pitta cleanser, which is so silky and leaves no residue at all. Followed by Pitta moisturiser and oil which left my skin feeling and looking radiant. I am prone to skin flakiness and redness, but in one use, my skin felt restored, soothed and was glowing.
I cannot recommend SAMAYA Ayurveda enough! I am an Ayurvedic Consultant and I will definitely be telling my clients about SAMAYA!
After reading an article in YOU magazine about SAMAYA Ayurvedic Skincare, I was interested in finding out more, as I had red itchy dry patches of skin on my face (weather & heating). On the website I established my Dosha (50% Vata, 40% Kapha, 10% Pitta) and placed an order, which arrived within a couple of days. The presentation of the products is luxurious and the personal note from Abida is lovely. I am really enjoying using the Vata range of products. I love that the products are so pure and that the wonderful fragrance is natural. My skin was very dry (and flaky / scaly around my nose and mouth). SAMAYA’s Cleanser, Moisturiser and Oil have made a massive difference in a relatively short time. I’m taking the supplements too and feel that my skin is being pampered from within. A couple of people have commented on how good my skin is looking. I’m looking forward to trying the Kapha range as I love the aroma of Sandalwood, Vetivert and Frankincense.
SAMAYA, you have a customer for life!
I am using SAMAYA’s Pitta Hydrating Cleanser, Anti-Ageing Cream and Anti-Ageing Treatment Oil and am totally in love with the entire range. The oil is amazing! Within minutes of application, my skin was incredibly soft and seemed to have regained considerable elasticity.
I have been using it for over 10 days now and feel a visible difference to my skin which is softer, more supple and radiant. The natural jasmine aroma is an added bonus!!!
SAMAYA Ayurveda – nothing short of a miracle! For years I have suffered with severe eczema on the knuckles of my hands. It is always worse in the winter to the point where the skin cracks and bleeds. I have tried so many oils and creams and nothing has ever given me more than a few hours of relief. I happened to come across SAMAYA by chance but I was really taken back with Abida’s (CEO) knowledge and passion for the product. I purchased both the Kapha oil and cleanser and have only been using them once a day for less than a week and it’s like my hands have never suffered with eczema! I am so relieved and happy – I would highly recommend these products!
I have been taking the Pitta supplements for 3 weeks now and have seen a positive difference in my skin already. The most noticeable being less redness on my cheeks due to rosacea which I have suffered from for a while. I think the neem and saffron have really helped to cool and calm my skin. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be purchasing again!
As anyone who knows me knows, I never bother leaving reviews. Yet after coming across Samaya Ayurveda I want to share with others the wonderfully positive experience I have had. It is very rare to find beauty products that actually do half of what they promise, let alone exceed expectations.
I have searched high and low for natural beauty products that will have a real impact on my skin. Living in Arizona where the climate is incredibly harsh and dry I turned to local favourites such as Tata Harper. After one particular afternoon leaving a shop nearly 1000$ lighter and laden with serums to combat this, that and the other because the creams alone did nothing I thought “enough”. At what point did it become normal to need kilos of products to slap on one’s face every day?
Having been drawn to Ayurveda for health reasons I decided to try Ayurvedic beauty. An article in Elle sent me to Samaya’s website. The simplicity of the regimen was a massive draw and the purity of the ingredients sold me on wanting to test the range.
My first order was a small one, I started with the cleanser. What really struck me was the incredible level of care and customer service that I received from day one from Abida, the founder. My order arrived with a carefully handwritten note and generous samples. My subsequent questions were all answered quickly and with true care.
After a couple of months using the Vata range of supplements and cream, I can honestly say my skin looks better than it has in years. The fine lines and wrinkles that motherhood and life in the desert were inflicting on me have been gently erased. My skin is no longer dry and lackluster. It is hydrated and vibrant. I receive numerous compliments and comments about how much younger I am looking lately. As a nice bonus I no longer travel with a few kilos of lotions and potions. Samaya’s products multitask and deliver. Forget claims like “Botox in a bottle” to get you to fork out hundreds of pounds on a small bottle. These products don’t need silly claims, they just deliver. I no longer look at women with Botox and wish I was brave enough to trust chemicals, I now want to I introduce them to Samaya and tell them to ditch the needle.
I am a huge fan of this range and the ethos behind it. After years of being disappointed I have finally found products I can trust and that free me up from obsessing over my skin so I can focus on more the important things in life.
I was never a believer in expensive face creams because in spite of trying a few high end brands, I never felt they worked well enough to be worth the money. So when I was given samples of the Pitta dosha type, I was skeptical and highly doubted that I would be seeing any dramatic changes to my skin. However as soon as I used the Pitta Cleanser, not only did all my make-up smoothly glide away but my skin also felt undeniably fresh and radiant. I looked closely and had to admit, I had never used a cleanser that left my skin feeling so clean and supple, yet deeply moisturized and bright.
Encouraged, I tried the Pitta Anti-Ageing Treatment Oil, which I loved instantly before I even put it on my face because it had the most beautiful floral smell of jasmine. What was a bigger surprise was that there is absolutely no added fragrance in these oils and that they are all naturally fragrant from the active ingredients. The heavenly smell of jasmine was from actual jasmine extract in the oil. Once I put it on my face, it felt velvety soft and glided smoothly all over my face. It was instantly absorbed and did not leave my face greasy or oily, but beautifully fragrant and smelling of fresh picked jasmine. I was a believer already.
When I woke up the next morning, my skin was remarkably soft, smooth and bright. I could not believe that I had actually seen visible results after the first use. I used the Anti-Ageing Cream before applying my everyday light make-up before I had to catch a flight back home. When I was home, it was a pleasant surpise that my family also noticed an improvement in my skin. Almost everyone told me my skin looked fresh and bright and not how it usually looked when I came back from a long, transatlantic trip. Now that is not something you hear often. This confirmed my belief that SAMAYA products had actually worked their magic on my face. I now use these products every day and my skin has never felt this good in years. I enjoy the fragrance as well as the luxurious feel of my skin after every use. I am a very happy user and hope that more people can try these amazing products so that they may see the results for themselves. I was a hardcore skeptic turned believer!
My face does not need any more Hyaluronic Acid treatments since I have been using all three of your products: the Pitta cleanser, cream and oil!
I am really happy with your products. I just finished my Pitta cream and I am running to buy a new one as I am addicted to it. They make my face feel really soft, and my skin is deeply hydrated. Very happy that they are all natural, that there are no chemicals in it, and that they do what they promise. Many thanks again!
I studied the principles of Ayurveda in relation to yoga over the course of a year and found it fascinating. I discovered many things which I could apply to my lifestyle and most importantly to my yoga teaching! To find a skincare range which follows the principals of Ayurveda is a revelation! This holistic skincare system contains the highest quality, natural ingredients and leaves my skin glowing. I use the Vata face cream daily and it is light yet deeply nourishing and moisturising. I am a typical Vata type with dry and sensitive skin, but this cream really agrees with my skin type and the botanical scent, which includes rose, is really uplifting to the senses.
I have been using the wonderful products for over 6 months now and I love them! I fly around the globe for work and my skin was often dehydrated and sensitive. With the Vata cleanser and moisturiser my skin is finally balanced, smooth, more radiant and I have a glow right after I apply it! And the smell is lovely!! I am delighted as the products are completely natural and perfect for my sensitive skin. I always have them in my suitcase as they are perfect for travel size. I used more expensive products before and never had the result Samaya gives to my skin. I highly recommend them as they are safe for everyone and I will continue to use them and praise them!
Thank you Abida for demanding only the best ingredients for your products, it works!!! All the best and long life to SAMAYA!!!
I am a repeat customer and am now on my second set of products! I started with the Vata oil, Kapha cleanser and Pitta cream and instantly found all three very calming. The Vata oil is deeply hydrating, applies with a velvety feel and does not look oily (even though I have combination skin). It also gives a soft glow on the skin. The cleanser is a real surprise – love how you can apply and get the sensation of a deep massage but the thoroughness of a cleanser in one. The smell is also adorable!
Having sampled all the creams in the range I can confirm that every single one is a delight to use – they are all deeply nourishing (especially when mixed with a drop of the oil) but also light enough to use as a base for light make up.
I don’t use Samaya all the time as I tend to cycle through a range of skincare products but since discovering Samaya, I have always returned to the products when in need of some recovery.
I have started to use Samaya products when on holiday. Knowing that I am putting only natural products on my skin when I need protection against the elements is important to me. In very hot and humid climates my skin tends to react and become very greasy but on a recent trip to Sri Lanka I used the earthy Kapha cream with sandalwood and vetivert and found it helped with open pores and I didn’t experience any oily skin.
Another thing that I love about the range is that you can smell all the goodness in the products so when you apply and use them, you feel you aren’t only feeding the skin but also the mind and the soul.
I am converted! The products are a delight for the senses – the natural aromas are delightful, they feel light and nourishing on my skin and they look fantastic too. Since using the SAMAYA range my skin has a noticeably brighter tone and breakouts are soothed into submission in a remarkable way.
I first tried the complete Pitta set and recently purchased the Vata cream and oil and am equally impressed with both ranges. Highly recommend SAMAYA if you want natural products that deliver results. The stunning packaging and holistic wellness were the icing on the cake!
I’m starting to see a healthier and brighter complexion after just two weeks! I have been following an AM and PM routine with the Kapha range: SAMAYA’s Kapha Hydrating Cleanser, Anti-Ageing Cream and the Anti-Ageing Treatment Oil.
I can describe my skin as very moody, prone to acne and blemishes and easily irritated due to allergies. I use the Anti-Ageing Cream in the morning prior to my makeup application. The cream is very moisturizing, but not overly heavy, making it a very good base for my foundation application.
During my night-time routine, I use the Hydrating Cleanser, massaging it all over my face and neck, rinsing with a bit of water and a washcloth. The cleanser lets me remove my eye makeup, including waterproof mascara and eyeliner, but without drying out the delicate skin near the eyes (which created unnecessary wrinkles in the past) and without causing any eye irritation like other makeup removers do. The cleanser leaves skin feeling hydrated and moisturized as it is oil based and has natural active hydration ingredients.
My final night-time routine is to massage in the oil treatment, a bit on the face, with more concentration on the neck and décolleté area. I love how fast it absorbs into the skin – best oil treatment I’ve used that I remember from the other three or four brands I have used in the past!
I adore the Kapha range’s natural earthy aroma which creates a very soothing and calming experience both in the morning and prior to bedtime. I’m in love with my routine and the SAMAYA Kapha product line.
SAMAYA… Finally a beauty range which is amazing and natural. I tried the Vata cream and oil.. I have extremely dry skin and sensitive eyes… So far all the products that I have tried even from the most popular exclusive brands have led to reactions like puffy eyes or spots.. Hence I have steered clear of all the beauty products until I discovered SAMAYA. I mixed the oil and cream to help with dry skin and most importantly no reaction…
Thank you SAMAYA!
I love the feel of the creams which provide the deepest moisture and hydration yet are surprisingly light and quickly absorbed. It is a close tie between Vata and Pitta for my favourites (I am a Vata-Pitta type). I like the light Vata fragrance from start to finish. The Pitta is a bit stronger at first but quickly dissipates and I felt it lingered longer than the Vata fragrance so in the end I was torn between the two. I will probably use the Pitta in the morning as I find it more invigorating and the Vata at night as I find it more calming and it helps me unwind and sleep better after a long day.
I was introduced to SAMAYA by a friend and now I’m a big fan of the creams – so much so I’m writing this review!
They are very well thought through and only use natural ingredients – I find this very reassuring as I want to know what I am putting on my face! After washing my face my skin can feel tight and dry. The creams absorb well, are non-greasy, and the scents have a relaxing quality. My favourite is Kapha which has a warm, herbal smell and is quite masculine. However, I sometimes change and use Vata which is lighter, fragrant and awakening.
I tried the Vata cleanser and cream. The cleanser is remarkable in that it actually cleans and hydrates your skin leaving it immediately supple and radiant. The cream is perfect and achieves what nourishing the skin should be all about. After only a few days I felt my skin to be firmer and lines visibly diminished. The natural rose smell makes me feel relaxed so I feel like I am having an aromatherapy treat while I do my daily skin routine. As the weather gets colder I can’t wait to try the Vata oil.
You just have to try these products once to feel their difference and effectiveness.
I am won over. Thank you SAMAYA!
It is wonderful to find a range of skin care products which are free from PEGs, TEAs, parabens, phthalates, silicones, synthetic colours and fragrance which are a delight to use. Far too many of the big cosmetic firms have failed to acknowledge that what you put on your skin passes into your blood stream.
With this in mind here we have a range of products which are customised to suit differing skin types according to the ancient art of Ayurveda. Rose for Vata, the very dry skin. Jasmine for a warmer, oilier complexion known as Pitta and the indulgent aroma of Sandalwood and Vetiver for cooler and less sensitive skin of a Kapha type complexion.
All the creams go on smoothly and are quickly absorbed releasing their delicate scents which transport you to a place of tranquillity and balance. I note that a little goes a long way so they are worth the reasonable cost of products of this quality.
One of my particular favourites is the cleanser: it goes on the skin like balm and simply adding water removes all trace of my make-up including mascara! Afterwards there is no sense of tautness in my skin, just a smooth hydrated surface. The same is true for the oils which leave my skin feeling plump and moisturised.
Finally they are so beautifully packaged making them a pleasure to use!
What a lovely set of products! I have tried all three ranges (Pitta, Vata and Kapha). The dosha test showed that Pitta was most suited to my characteristics, and indeed I’ve found the Jasmine range has had a lovely effect on my skin, which looks and feels softer, plumper and clearer after a week’s use. I love the cleanser, which is very easy to apply, leaves no stickiness or dryness and gets rid of all my makeup, even waterproof mascara and eyeliner. The cream feels luxurious and smells divine, and I’ve found my foundation goes on much more smoothly after applying it, too. In particular, I love using the oil. In the past I have never used oils, partly due to concern that they might be greasy or cause break-outs. In fact my skin looks much clearer since using these products and the oil has a noticeable effect on reducing the fine lines around my eyes. I have applied it morning and night – it’s light and doesn’t sting / puff up my eyes at all, and it creates a beautiful glow!
Despite the Jasmine range suiting my dosha best, I adore the smell of the rose products (Vata). Since I also had a high amount of Vata in my test, I would potentially use the jasmine cleanser and cream along with the rose oil so that I can enjoy both scents. My husband loves the scent of the jasmine! I think all the aromas are well judged; they are not at all overpowering but are noticeable enough to make using the products a pleasurable and calming experience.
I’m really pleased to have discovered SAMAYA – it’s great to use natural products that really work and the Ayurvedic principles appeal to me.
The scent I like most is Kapha as the earthy fragrance really appeals to me. This is incredible because the whole range is ‘perfume-free’ as SAMAYA only uses natural ingredients and pure essential oils. Yet the aroma of sandalwood and khus comes through mildly and beautifully. The Kapha ritual leaves me feeling balanced and carries me through the day feeling good about myself.
With summer approaching, I now feel like making a change from the Kapha to the Vata range. The fresh and delicate rose fragrance of the Vata products are perfect. The cleanser is refreshing. The oil works wonders overnight and I like using the cream during the day.
Having been attracted to the holistic wellness system offered by the SAMAYA range, I am finding that my usual few minutes skincare regime has become an essential part of my day, not just for my skin, but also for my internal balance and well-being.
The cleanser is a ‘hero’ product, being much gentler on my sensitive skin than the market leading product that I currently use. Its formulation is a total breakthrough, as it is easily removed with a splash of water, leaving no trace of any make-up, not even my water-resistant mascara. The hydration it provides is beyond anything that I have ever known and as my skin is dry, this has been a revelation, allowing me to use a lighter foundation, which shows off, my now, radiant skin. My skin is hydrated, cleansed and my inner soul calmed, from only a few minutes cleansing. Moreover, the delicate aroma of the Vata cleanser is uplifting, transporting me to a place of total relaxation.
When I apply the Vata oil, before going to bed, my skin gleams and I feel a deep sense of stillness. It is as if I am in a beautifully perfumed garden where all is tranquil. As my head touches the pillow I rest assured that in the morning my skin will be deeply hydrated and gleaming. I combine the oil with a little cream applied over the top if my skin feels in need of additional hydration.
With subtle undertones of rose, the cream re-balances my skin, removing sensitivity and dryness. My skin regime has become a vital part of my day, unifying my mind and body, restoring my sense of well-being, allowing me to fly through my hectic schedule with flawless, glowing skin.
It is not often that I steer away from my usual products to try something new. However, having made the exception and trying the Vata range from Samaya, I don’t think I can go back to my old products ever again! I have always believed in keeping things natural and that is exactly why Samaya has such appeal. Made completely with natural Ayurvedic infusions, Samaya’s range is a breath of fresh air amid the chemicals that surround us.
The soft delicate fragrance combined with deep hydrating properties makes the Vata range perfect for my dry and sensitive skin. I particularly like the cleanser as it manages to take off every trace of my stubborn kohl without ever burning my eyes! The anti-ageing oil is also great and gets absorbed in the skin within seconds, leaving it nice and moist for a long time.
At first, I fell in love with SAMAYA’s Kapha range because of its beautiful warming scent. Since I started to actually use the products my skin has been enriched with the right alchemy of prime natural ingredients.
The cleanser is fantastic, its consistency is silk. It works very well clearing away all makeup and rinses out without leaving your skin feeling dry, but rather very hydrated and supple.
The oil is light yet nourishing, it is rapidly absorbed, reduces the visibility of fine lines, revealing a smoother complexion.
I am very impressed with SAMAYA’s Ayurvedic philosophy and I am enjoying the holistic experience from using their effective and relaxing products.
