How I use it
I mix one spoonful of Ubtan (which is in powder form) with Rose water and make a thick paste. Apply it on my face and massage gently, leave it for 5 minutes and than wash off. I use this ubtan twice a week (Alternate days). It exfoliates skin well without drying it out and leaves it radiant. I find the formula bit abrasive so don’t really use it as a face wash everyday.
After using it continuously for 3 weeks I could see slight difference in my skin tone and texture, though nothing too dramatic. Ubtan is quite grainy so entire application and removing part is quite messy, I thought it’s a ready to use mask while purchasing (for some unknown reasons). To save some time, I tried to mix and keep it for 3 days so that I wouldn’t have to do that daily, but then it started smelling foul. Now I mix the amount I need for single use only.It exfoliates skin while cleaning it, so one doesn’t need a separate face scrub. I found the particles quite coarse, would advise to rub it on face with a light hand only.
It smells of sandalwood which is quite pleasant. You may find it pricey but then quantity is good and will last for at least 1.6/ 2 months even if used once daily. Though due to its abrasive texture I would recommend it only twice or thrice a week.
A good product with all goodness of ayurvedic ingredients. Continuous use improves skin texture by removing dead cells and makes it glowy. However preparing and removing the ubtan is bit of a task and gets messy which is a biggest drawback for me. Also after sometime it stopped doing much for my complexion (In terms of evening out). I would not repurchase it since I found texture a bit too coarse for my skin and due to the fact that I am more interested in ready-to-use face masks.
