If you are regular at my blog, by now you would have probably guesses that I’m huge fan of sample boxes or gift boxes as they let you try lot of products at fraction of cost, so that later you can buy full size products of the things that you liked and suited you well.
Today I’m going to review a similar box from very reputed and ayurvedic brand: Kama Ayurveda box.
I’m pretty sure everyone knows about this brand and also that the products are absolutely beautiful but quite expensive; hence I was ecstatic when I got to use this awesome gift box.
The best part of this brand is that all their products are ultra-pure i.e there is no artificial colour, fragrance, petrochemical or parabens & sulphates. That is why the products are so good.
It comes in beautiful golden box with straws at the base. The moment you open the box you can smell awesome smell of all the products. The products have standard kama ayurveda packaging.
1. Pure Rose water (50 ml)
2. Rose Jasmine face cleanser (50 ml)
3. Bringadi intensive hair treatment. (100 ml)
4. Rose lip balm (5 gm)
5. Jwalini Retexturizing skin treatment oil (10 ml)
All the products in the box except for the Jwalini Retexturizing skin treatment oil are full size products.
1. Pure Rose water (INR 250 for 50 ml)
It comes in a spray bottle and is a complete winner just for that. I directly spray it on my face and viola refreshed skin in 2 minutes. I have used it as a toner; have mixed it with powder face pack and also as a face mist. It has very mild smell and has very soothing effect on skin. I love this to the bits.
2. Rose Jasmine face cleanser (INR 375 for 50 ml)
It comes in a bottle with a pump. The product is clear has runny texture. It smells of rose and has very mild & calming smell. I absolutely love this smell and use it every evening just for its calming effect. It doesn’t lather much but works well. It is very gentle on the skin, doesn’t leave my residue behind nor does it make my skin dry. Skin feels really soft and dewy with subtle glow after using this face wash.
This is my favourite product from this box.
3. Bringadi intensive hair treatment. (INR 515 for 100 ml)
It comes in a transparent bottle with golden screw on lid. I’m not really impressed with this packing as it makes using product a bit difficult. The oil is brown in color and has really strong ayurvedic smell. The oil itself is non greasy or sticky on fingers. I have use just 30 mins before bath, over night, over night with steam, and every time I have just loved the results. It makes my hair super soft and glossy; most times I skip my conditioner if I have applied bringadi oil. It has reduced my hair fall significantly and transformed my frizzy mane into soft, manageable hair.
4. Rose lipbalm (INR 525 for5 gm)
It comes in small transparent tub packaging with black screw on lid, packaging could have been bit better (hygienic) in my opinion. The product itself is yellowish in colour and has tick cream like texture. It smells divine of mils rose but the fragrance disappears quickly once you apply it on lips. It is quite light on lips and stays for 2 to 3 hrs. It is a non sticky, non greasy product and it doesn’t impart any colour to the lips just a natural sheen. It moisturises my lips extremely well and has cured my dry & flaky lips.
5. Jwalini Retexturizing skin treatment oil (RS 350 for 100 ml)
This is the only sample product in the box and quite frankly I won’t be able to same about it as the quantity is very less to actually know how well is product works or doesn’t work.
The oil is light yellow in colour and has a thick oily consistency. It smells quite strong of various herbs. I have applied it on my hands and it got absorbed quickly without making them greasy or sticky. I have used it in my moisturiser at night and next day my skin was looking better and usual but not at all oily. I might buy a full size product and then give a detailed review.
I really liked all the products from this box and would definitely buy the cleanser, hair oil and full size bottle of Retexturizing oil again. The products are really good and deliver on all the claims.
