I have to admit that I don’t know much about the skin care regimen of Ayurveda so when I came across this small-batch, organic skin care brand PAAVANI Ayurveda, I am not sure what I should use and what I expect but I am impressed by the brand promises which are
- 100% Plant Based
- Wild Harvested
- Certified Cruelty-Free
- Gluten Free
- Chemical Free and made completely of ingredients that are good enough to eat!
I am also curious about the cleansing result of the 2-in-1 powder cleanser. I am used to the foam formula which gives me extra clean and soft feeling so I am kind of addicted to it as my necessary daily skin care ritual. However, after seeing below before and after picture, and reading 5-star reviews of PAAVANI Ayurveda 2-in-1 Cleanser & Mask, I decide to give it a try and see if this herbal powder cleanser can change my perception in daily face cleansing.
I have to say that I am totally sold! The cleansing result is amazing! It helps me to withdraw impurities and refine pores. I can’t help myself to touch my face after using it as my skin becomes clean, soft and smooth. In addition, the fresh, natural herbal smell calms me every morning which I need it desperately during pandemic.
This product also leads me to explore more about Ayurvedic skin care so what is Ayurvedic skin care?
Ayurvedic skin care is based on ancient Indian medicine which incorporates various herbs, natural clays, essential oils and natural moisturisers to take care of your skin and target specific skin problems. The practice includes Ayurvedic facials, treatments for skin problems and herbal formulations for various skin types.
The reasons behind using 2-in-1 Cleanser & Mask
Ayurveda recommends cleansing the skin through gentle daily exfoliation as opposed to using harsh soaps that stripe away the skin’s natural protectant sebum. That’s why PAAVANI Ayurveda creates 2-in-1 Cleansers & Masks are powered by 100% powdered herbs & clays, which gently scrub the surface of the skin. To activate, simply mix with water to create a nutrient-dense paste that will leave your skin feeling addictively smooth. Use daily as an exfoliating cleanser or weekly as a leave-on mask.
For Daily Cleanser: Prepare a small bowl and a spoon. Mix 1 tsp of the Cleanser and 2 tsp of PAAVANI Ayurveda Floral Water in a bowl to create “watery paste”. Massage the skin upward every morning for gentle cleansing and exfoliating.
For Weekly Mask (Deep Cleansing): Mix 2-3 tsp Cleanser and 1 tsp Floral Water in a bowl to create “clay mask” to unclog pores, remove blackheads and blemishes. Leave it on the skin for 10-15mins. Rinse with lukewarm water. Use it 1-3 times a week.
Do I need to use Floral Water with the 2-in-1 Cleaner & Mask?
PAAVANI Floral Water is a combination of organic Rose & Lavender water. This formula heals the skin, reduces scars & blemishes and provides hydration deep within the skin’s layers. Combine the Floral Water with the Cleanser & Mask for an added boost of botanical nourishment. However, there is nothing wrong if you use tap water with the Cleanser & Mask.
Which formula of 2-in-1 Cleaner & Mask I use?
PAAVANI Ayurveda comes with 5 formulations for different skin types. I choose TRIDOSHIC CLEANSER & MASK which is designed for balanced skin.
Main Ingredients of PAAVANI Ayurveda TRIDOSHIC CLEANSER & MASK:
Bentonite clay is composed of volcanic ash. It contains potassium, iron, sodium, silica, calcium & magnesium. It is known as a "swelling clay" because when combined with water, it has the ability to absorb & remove toxins, heavy metals, impurities & chemicals from the skin & body.
Triphala is a classic Ayurvedic formulation of the Indian superfruits: Haritaki, Amalaki & Bibhitaki. The fruit, Haritaki, protects the skin from premature wrinkles & environmental damage & also acts as a natural toner, flushing toxins from deep within the skin’s layers. Amalaki fruit is packed with vitamin C to bolster the skin’s defense from free radical damage & the fruit of Bibhitaki aids in keeping the skin pure & clear.
Shatavari is a fundamental & powerful herb in Ayurveda. It is a cooling, soothing adaptogen which maintains skin balance & hydration. It has the ability to slow collagen breakdown, resulting in ageless, radiant skin.
Cardamom helps to increase the blood circulation beneath the skin’s layers. Thanks to its high dose of vitamin C & has strong antiseptic qualities that keep your skin feeling refreshed & oh so clean!
Pros: Perfect cleansing result without stripping away my natural skin’s moisture. Helps to unclog, refine pores, withdraw impurities and gentle exfoliate flaky and dead skin cells. It comes with different formulations for various skin types and skin problems.
Cons: Need to mix with Floral Water (or tap water) which may take some time to adapt it. It can be a bit messy for the first time user.
The cleansing result of PAAVANI Ayurveda 2-in-1 Cleansers & Masks is impressive! The formula of this product is clever as It can be used as daily cleanser and weekly mask. I can feel that my skin is soft, supple and refined after using it and the whiteheads on my chin are gone!
However, it’s a bit tricky to use. I won’t say it is convenient coz a bowl and a spoon are needed to mix and create the cleanser, and the texture of it is watery and grainy which may dripping when you apply it to the skin.
