I was introduced to SAMAYA at a recent Blogosphere event. As a trained beauty therapist and lecturer Lily is familiar with Ayurvedic principles, which the products are based around. The brand focuses on balancing the skin through products corresponding to your Dosha type.
What is Ayurveda?
Ayurvedic principles work on balancing the body, mind and soul.
What are Doshas?
There are 3 Doshas; Vata, Pitta and Kapha. These are energies which match our physical and emotional traits. Usually there is one dominant Dosha in each individual although some people have two or even three.
- tall or short
- tendency toward cold hands and feet
- generally have dry skin and dry hair and don’t perspire much
- athletic build
- good concentration
- sensitive skin
- oily skin

I came out as a mixture of Vata and Pitta and was very kindly gifted a Pitta Anti-Ageing Oil £79.00 which I put to the test.
What SAMAYA say about the product:
High-performance Ayurvedic infusions such as Jasmine, Neem, Lotus, Turmeric, Saffron, Shatavari and Gotu Kola are harnessed in a quick-absorbing formula, resulting in skin that appears youthful and radiant, whilst its calming aroma imparts a deep sense of tranquillity.
I was impressed with the packaging, it is in keeping with the branding and has a clean and sophisticated look. The products are so chic that they would look great on display in your bathroom. I like that the oil comes in a glass bottle as opposed to a plastic one as it gives it a high end feel – it’s always disappointing when you purchase an expensive skincare product and it arrives in cheap packaging so it is refreshing to see SAMAYA have put so much effort into the product as a whole.
The product has a delicate jasmine scent, it is subtle and not at all over powering. The oil pumps out well and is absorbed into the skin quickly. The oil is light and and leaves my face feeling soft whilst giving it a nice healthy glow. the product isn’t greasy or sticky and feels soothing on the skin.
A full list of ingredients and their beneficial properties can be found on SAMAYA’s website.
I’m really impressed with the Pitta Anti-Ageing Treatment Oil and am keen to try out the other products in the range. I came down with a cold the day after receiving the product so figured what better way to really put the oil to the test. I’ve been using the oil morning and night and, even though I’ve been feeling pretty grotty, my skin has actually maintained a healthy glow. The oil helped to sooth my sensitive skin and has kept it well moisturised. When I find a product I love I tend to repurchase it again and again – the Pitta Anti-Ageing Treatment Oil will definitely be one of them!
