Omved All Skin types Ubtan - Review

I love trying natural stuff to enhance beauty rather than creams. The only cream I use consistenly is a body lotion and that's cause I spend 12-13 hours in an air conditioned office which sucks the moisture from my skin.

So I came across Omved Ubtan (sort of a cleanser) on another blog and decided to give it a try. And I am so glad I did! Read on to find out why.

Price: INR120 for 50gm (bought it from the Omved store. Also available online)


Ingredients: green lentil (moong) 24%, black lentil (udad) 24%, red sandalwood 24%, white sandalwood 24%, turmeric root 4%

I use the ubtan once in 2 weeks and I find that this is good enough. I am scared to use ubtans too often in case it damages the skin. But, once in 2 weeks is fine. In fact, Omved ubtan can actually be used more often. This ubtan is slightly grainy and smells lightly of sandalwood. I find the smell quite heavenly :)

I mix my ubtan with the Fabindia rose water and regular water and make a thin paste which I then apply to my face and neck. The ubtan needs to be kept for only for 2-3 minutes. I then wash off using water and rubbing it in a circular motion on my face till all the ubtan is gone.
And the result is - beautifully glowing and smooth skin! In fact, the first time I used it, a couple of people in office actually asked me whether I had used a special scream or had a facial done! It is that good :)

Pros:
  • Completely natural ingredients with a light earthy smell which is very pleasant.
  • Very easy to use and no hassle in making the paste or in application.
  • Comes off easily and does not leave any stains on the skin.
  • It provides light exfoliation and is not harsh on the skin.
  • Provides glowing, radiant and smooth skin which I can't help touching again and again.
  • While 50gms is a small amount, I got about 20 uses out of one pack. So not at all expensive - yippee!
  • In case you want to splurge, the ubtan can be used all over the body to get smooth arms, legs and body.
Cons
  • Storage might be an issue due to the packaging. I made a small cut on one corner (as can be seen in the pic) and staple it after every use. The package stands up independently, so I just staple it and put it back on the shelf.
So have you used Omved ubtan or any other kind of ubtan? What was your experience?

  7. Wow I'm up for anything that makes the skin glow - I love anything that offers a bit of exfoliation too. This is a great review, I've not actually heard of the brand before, but it definitely looks like it is worth a try. I will have a look online.
