I have been quite the wanderer recently, taking off on an amazing wellness break and seeing some gorgeous locations! Yes , there’s a beautiful walk-through coming up soon , which I can’t wait to share with you, my dear, luscious reader! 🙂

Before I left for the break, Omved’s team approached me to review two of their products – an Ultra-Light Day & Night Moisturizer and an All Skin Type Ubtan. You know what they say about the people being an extension of a brand’s ethos? I was pleasantly surprised to deal with a very responsive team who was prompt in handling any queries I had and clarifications I sought.

I was also pretty confident of their product’s quality, ingredients and effectiveness as I have bought their products earlier online and enjoyed using them. You can read a review of their foot soak here.As the brand mentions on its label,  it is also the first & only Safe Cosmetics Pledge signee from India. Now, that’s a good place to start a review from.:)

This post is a tad long as it covers two products. Enjoy!

1. OMVED ULTRA-LIGHT DAY & NIGHT MOISTURIZER ‘A beauty boosting blend of botanicals that help restore skin’s suppleness. *Jojoba nourishes and restores the skin’s pH balance, ** Neroli tones , giving a natural glow’

I have a combination, sensitive skin type and have to be very careful about what I slather onto it. Genuine products without chemicals and full of nourishing , natural ingredients always get a thumbs up from me. This moisturizer is a good find and sees you through night & day, a good multi-tasker!

Slide2Packaging The 100 ml bottle is made of light-weight plastic , though it looks much like glass. A pump nozzle smoothly dispenses the product, which is both convenient and keeps the product hygienic. The nozzle also makes it easy to use the product when out of home, say at office or in the car. My only complaint would be the cap which cracked on its own pretty soon!

Ingredients DM (De-mineralized) Water, Jaiphal extract, Almond Oil, Glycerin, Calendula Oil, Glyceryl Stearate, Aloe Vera Juice, Cetyl Alcohol, Grape Seed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Salicylic Acid, Sodium Benzoate, Neroli Oilmoist -labelAs the website describes , ‘ This light, moisturising beauty-boosting blend uses the skin-reviving benefits of the essential oil of Neroli and the Ayurvedic herbal extract of Calendula and Jaiphal, in pure cold-pressed oils of Sweet Almond and Jojoba, to restore skin suppleness, diminish pigmentation, even out skin tone and naturally clarify and balance oily skin.

  • Jojoba, an antibacterial nourisher, restores the skin’s pH balance and protects from premature ageing.
  • Neroli is an excellent skin toner, with brightening properties. It gives a natural glow and reduces blemishes and scars.
  • Calendula protects skin from the effects of the environment, pollution and air conditioning. Nourish, balance and revitalise your skin.

The label also mentions ‘ No parabens, sulphates, silicones,petrochemicals, glycols, pthalates,synthetic colors or perfumes’

P.S I love using Jojoba Oil for skin cleansing / deep moisturizing at times, because it is the oil closest in composition to the skin’s own natural sebum. And I was happy to see it in the ingredient list.

Product Experience

  • Texture & Consistency The product has a light-weight , smooth texture, is non-runny and spreads easily. However, a little goes a long way ( a couple of short pumps) as the product takes a bit to get completely absorbed. Although the label mentions it as ‘For Normal to Oily skin’ ,  I found that the moisturizer though light was good enough for the upcoming dry Autumn and Winter months ( probably because of a the blend of natural plant oils in it). Further, it has definitely passed my skin sensitivity test.product -moist-closeup
  • Fragrance It has a mild, natural fragrance that I liked ( and no synthetic perfumes as mentioned on the label).
  • Benefit claims Being nicely moisturizing , it does keep the skin supple and plumped up. However, the toning claim will need some long-term usage, to be verified.

Price Rs.590/- for 100ml . A good buy keeping in mind its natural , chemical-free ingredients

2. OMVED ALL SKIN TYPES UBTAN ‘Cleansing Grains and Herbs’

ubtan closeup powder

I absolutely love the ingredients in this Ubtan! A homogenous , finely powdered mix of lentils, sandalwood and turmeric. The product is great as a quick pick-me-up for the facial skin and is to be used as a face scrub. Since I have sensitive skin, I am very careful about exfoliating it and stay away from the abrasive ones that scratch my skin and leave it red.

This mix , made with ‘nourishing grains and skin-regenerating herbs for exfoliation without over-abrasion’ seemed just the product I would like using.

Packaging A 50 gm foil pouch that keeps the powder dry and is easy to cut and use. The label mentions ingredients in detail and how to use the product.Ubtan label

Ingredients Green Lentil, Black Lentil,Red Sandalwood, White Sandalwood, Turmeric Root

As per their website – ‘ A combination of healing botanicals with nutrient-rich grains that gently exfoliate and deep cleanse, removing excess oil and dirt without stripping off moisture. Formulated and prepared with a special blend of clays and Ayurvedic herbs, this soap-free cleansing option not only enhances beauty but also possesses definite medicinal values by virtue of its anti-fungal, antibacterial, anti-perspirant, deodorant and skin-toning ingredients, thus protecting from various skin problems. Regular usage prevents premature wrinkles, removes scars and tightens open pores.

• Turmeric corrects the complexion
• White Sandalwood cools and hydrates
• Red Sandalwood prevents skin infections
• Green Moong opens blocked pores and maintains the pH balance
• Black Urad removes dead cells and tightens pores.’

Product Experience The use instructions ask to mix required amount with some water, mix and make a thin paste, apply on face with fingertips and leave on for two minutes. Rinse well with warm water. I added some Rose Water to it too. My skin was definitely smoother, brighter and refreshed after use. Loved the sublime Sandalwood fragrance!

Price Rs.190 for 50 gms. The quantity should last unto 10-12 applications.

Available at Omved Online Store and  Amaara Food & Wellness Pvt.Ltd., Shop No. 143, Supermart 1, DLF-IV, Gurgaon ( Contact Mr.Ramandeep Singh at 9873585630)
