Say it as is: Honest Ayurvedic Skincare Reviews for you
When it comes to spending our time and money we are careful not to waste it on experiences that are not great and so we read up on reviews before we decide to watch a particular film or play or try out a particular restaurant. Genuine reviews help us make up our minds about watching or participating in the experience. But reviews become even more important when it comes to making a decision about something as sensitive as our skin and hair health. We do not want to get stuck with the wrong products or products that do not suit our bodies or simply products we are not happy with.
And so, Shankara takes great pride in receiving these raving skincare reviews for its ayurvedic line of skincare, beauty, and personal care products from thousands of happy, satisfied and glowing customers.
'Does an excellent job of sloughing off dead skin cells
To start with, here’s what bloggers from Vegan Beauty Review had to say about Shankara products:
“The first product I tried was their Tri-Dosha Microcrystal Exfoliation Treatment. It’s made with ultra-fine silica crystals that are blended in a base of pure aloe-algae gel with herbs and essential oils to help decrease fine lines fade and wrinkles as well as even clear skin tone."
"It’s a bit of an intense exfoliation, which I’m partial to because I feel like serums and lotions seep in better afterward, but if you have sensitive skin, this might be too abrasive (perhaps watering it down would help). I can definitely feel a difference right away, even after the first time I tried this. There’s no doubt in my mind that this product does an excellent job of sloughing off dead skin and dead cells though. It also has a gorgeous Indian herbal scent. I’m half Indian, so these smells make me nostalgic and give me the feels.”
'I heart the smell and texture'
In the second review Sunny wrote for Vegan Beauty Review, “Next up, I tried their Pitta Calming Mask which is a hydrating algae/aloe gel-infused mask with cooling, anti-inflammatory herbs, plant extracts, essential oils, nourishing oligo-peptides, saccharides and amino acids to help soothe and calm sensitive or irritated skin (great for rashes, burns, redness, acne, etc.).
It’s a blend of aloe, green tea, turmeric root, spirulina, neem, rose, chamomile, and a bunch of other lovely ingredients that help promote soft and dewy fresh skin. I heart the smell and texture and the way my skin feels afterward. It’s an extremely gentle mask and considering that most of the masks I own are clay-based (and often drying), this was definitely a nice change of pace. Makes for a great self, too, right.”

Their products are top-notch and exactly what they claim. Shipping is quick and items are packaged nicely.

'full face mask and hair oil sample with the exfoliating face scrub and the serum. I was very impressed with all three products
5. “I ordered the full face mask and hair oil sample with the exfoliating face scrub and the serum. I was very impressed with all three products. I love how the face scrub beads are really small and gentle. I normally scrub once a week with other stuff, but this scrub made my face feel like it was getting a deep cleanse.
Once I put the serum and the oil on, it felt like my face just absorbed it right up. It truly felt like my pores shrunk and my face felt 10 years younger! There is a scent in the serum and the oil that seems to last a few hours, but it is pleasant and I had no irritation with any of the products. I 100% recommend these and will be buying them again”- Denise Case.

The smell is fantastic without being overpowering and simply put, the product does EXACTLY what it claims to do. Your skin will be hydrated and glowing. I most definitely can and will recommend this product. One last thing...I absolutely love the bottle this comes in. It's pretty, but besides that, I love the pump.
