Hope you all are doing well, In sha Allah
In this world of filters, we all are craving for that healthy and flawless skin that one swipe on the phone gives us. That is definitely achievable only if we take care and feed the right things to our skin.
Quite often I am asked to share my skin care routine and all I say is, Less is More!
Use as less chemicals as you can. I try to stick to kitchen ingredients for my skin and hair care as much as I can but then of course we all have our lazy days.
The brand that I am sharing with you today is “The Ancient Beauty”.The range is inspired by the age-old ancient beauty cultures of the world globally & is created from edible ingredients. All products are 100% natural, Eco-friendly & do not contain any artificial colours,chemicals or preservatives.
Let’s hear what the founder Dr.Deepti Sehgal has to say, “ Cleopatra, the epitome of beauty never visited a spa or a skin clinic…The old charm of grandma’s beauty recipies has somewhere lost in the midst of chemical based beauty industry. Real beauty reflects from within & need not be dependent on external treatments. Modern beauty products not only sell dreams but also carry health threats due to their extensive chemical compositions”
Let’s have a look at the complete range of products
The products are completely customised and hand curated as per skin type. I was asked for my skin type and the problem areas and was sent a pack of 6 products that will help me treat them.

Views: The fact that it helps in getting rid of cellulite is a total win. I’ve recently built up a lot of it around my legs and I am definitely looking to using this to get rid of it.
Overall, this complete kit of 6 products has given me a complete spa like experience at home. I did give it a good 2-3 weeks for the products to start showing results on my skin. The fragrance of all the products is very mild and doesn’t bother too much. I wasn’t too happy with the packaging though as they are packed in glass bottles which means taking extra care while using as it can lead to breakage and Ofcourse makes it non- travel friendly.
The label on the packaging is very clumsy and peeled off just after one use. Though the ingredients and directions to use the products is mentioned on each jar but it is so finely printed that it’s difficult to read.
They are slightly over priced as compared to the products you would buy off the shelf but considering these are 100% Organic, Chemical free and just the right food for my skin; I wouldn’t mind spending a little extra on these quality assured products
