As the Autumn approaches it’s time to revamp our skincare routines. I don’t know about you but in the cooler weather my skin completely changes and so do my products.

So recently I’ve been trying out a new skincare range. The range is SAMAYA AYURVEDA and I was lucky enough to be GIFTED the Anti-Ageing Treatment Oil to try out.

I love the whole concept of the brand after reading such good reviews online about the products.


Samaya is an all natural skincare brand based around Ayurvedic practices. The brand was founded by Abida Abida Halstenberg who while growing up in India was surrounded by Ayurvedic culture. With remedies passed down from her grandmother created a skincare brand that helps achieve samadosha or to provide perfect balance in your life, starting with your skin.

Samaya collects the authentic elements of Ayurveda together with clinically proven active and anti-ageing ingredients to provide a relaxing, indulgent premium skincare that works in harmony with your lifestyle. 


Before using any of the products, Samaya recommend you take the Dosha test. This can be done online and I will leave you a link for you to try out this test for yourselves at the bottom of this post. 

I also thought it would be useful to include a page from the website, so you can learn more about discovering your Dosha.  
So after doing a short simple test, ( don’t worry the test is just a few lifestyle questions) you should get your Dosha results saying which of the products are suitable for your skin and lifestyle. 
 With three different types of Dosha, Vata, Pitta or Kapha, each have their own skincare ranges containing all natural blend of botanical ingredients built on thousands of years of holistic knowledge.

(Taken from the website) 


Energetic and creative in balance, but worried, tired and indecisive when out of balance.
Often slender build and suffers from cold hands and feet. Tends to have delicate dry skin and hair, which may need extra moisturising and nourishment to keep it glowing and healthy.


Well-proportioned and compact build, with a focused mind and love of order.
Confident and passionate, enjoying challenges.
Prone to anger and impatience when out of balance.
Benefits from gentle skincare as skin can be sensitive and irritable, susceptible to wrinkles, sunburn and inflammation.


Laid back and easy-going with a stable, steady energy level. 
Often has a strong physical frame but can be lethargic or apathetic if out of balance. 
Takes a relaxed, reasonable approach to life and can be compassionate, gentle and kind.
Skin is usually thick and pale, can be radiant and glowing, but with clogged pores or excess oil when out of balance.

So after taking the test my Dosha is Kapha. This is for skin that is usually thick and pale, but can be radiant and glowing, but with clogged pores or excess oil when out of balance.

Which ever Dosha you are,  the skincare brand  promises to contribute to healthier, radiant looking skin.
 I love the sound of using an anti ageing skincare which will not only help my skin but provide me with a sense of calm and tranquility at the same time. I also like the fact that it’s tailored to your skincare type.                                     
Firstly the packaging which is a simple tube. The tube comes in beautiful green packaging. ( Each Dosha has different coloured packaging). Inside this fresh packaging is the actual product itself. This comes in the form of a simple glass pump jar. The pump disperses just the right amount of product so not a drop of this oil is wasted.
You get 30ml of product, which is about right for a product of this nature.
The brand promises to deliver immediate results with wrinkles being visibly reduced. With this in mind I really wanted to see if it work for myself
The key ingredients to this product are natural high performance Ayurvedic infusions such as Ashwagandha root extract Sandalwood, Vetivert and Frankincense oils. Not only does this have Anti-Ageing properties it’s also calming and soothing. It also contains almond, turmeric root, apricot kernel, paracress flower extract. This is great for healing, balancing and cleansing, with antiflammatory and antioxidant properties.

I have been using this product now for the last couple of weeks. I have just been popping it on in the evening after my usual cleanse and tone. I didn’t feel I could use this product in the morning as I feel the oil works better over night and not sure I would be able to put makeup on over the top. You only need one drop as a little goes a really long way. The Kapha Anti-Ageing oil isn’t greasy at all just silky smooth. I found if you leave it on overnight the next day your skin feels hydrated, smoother, brighter and really nourished.

The scent of Sandalwood really comes though. Not in an overpowering way but in a very calming way making this product a pleasure to use.
I love how the fine lines under my eyes seem to have improved and my skin tone does seem to have got a lot clearer ( I suffer from hyperpigmentation). My skin also seems a lot calmer. Since using this product I haven’t had any kind of breakouts which is unusual for my skin.  I look forward to seeing how my skin looks with continued use with this product especially in the colder winter months.
Lastly this product is £79. I know this is expensive for some but please bear in mind a little does really go a long way and I think this bottle would last a long time.
It’s also worth pointing out that this was a beauty shortlist awards winner for 2017 and won best new natural product and packaging design of the year in 2016.
All Samaya products are organic and free from Parabens, Sulphates, PEGs, TEA, DEA, Propylene Glycol, Phthalates, Petrochemicals, Synthetic Colour and Fragrance, Mineral Oil and Silcones. So don’t just take my word for it, TAKE THE DOSHA TEST for yourself.
