TATHA FACE SCRUB

hey all
Today I will be reviewing a product from a company called TATHA
here is a look

Nature's Blessings    
  

Tatha is the wellness brand inspired by ancient Indian wisdom and healing techniques and derives it formulations by delving into the rich treasure trove of Mother Nature. We believe in healing, in a holistic manner, by enlivening the body's inner intelligence.

Tatha's wellness products are based on the ancient science of Aromatherapy. It helps in maintaining good health by stimulating the body's natural rejuvenating abilities and, at the same time, promoting longevity, alertness and enlightenment.

Tatha is totally commited to provide pure, natural, safe and effective products, thereby, enhancing and enriching the lives of all those we touch.

Blessed by the five elements of nature - Air, Water, Earth, Space and Fire that makes the universe so special, it is infused with the energy that emanates from each of these elements.

All our products are handmade under strict quality supervision and are paraben, sulphate and chemical free and are not tested on animals. We use, only recyclable glass bottles for storing our products to maintain its purity, as we are aware that acrylic and plastic containers react with the essential ingredients used in Aromatherapy and loses its potency.

Our efforts are not only focused on personal wellness but on environment wellness also and this forms the core values of our brand that makes the Tatha experience so unique and enjoyable.

 What the website says about the product:

A fresher, glowing complexion will emerge after using one of our gentle facial scrubs. fine particles of oatmeal & almonds gently lifts dead skin cells whilst replenishing the skins natural oils.
INGREDIENTS - Avena Sativa, Prunus Amygdalus Var. Dulcus, Apis Mellifera, Prunus Amygdalus Var
mixed with water
 My Experience with the scrub:
THis face scrub comes in a royal  blue glass jar with a steel screwable lid.There is a small tag like  instruction leaflet attached with a string which i found Oh So cute!!!!
Fragrance:
On pening the jar , there is no strong smell which is obvious,however on sniffing I found it to be like  a dairy smell.....something i would co relate with hmmmm...a milky smell with some herbs....which kind of dissappointed me.But to their credit,there was no artifiical smell either.
This is apparently made of oat meal and almonds,which I guess form the scrub part of it.
TEXTURE
The appearance of the product is grainy.However ,on touch the granules are very soft,not like hard scrubby ones.
USAGE
Take a tsp of the product in a plate.
add 1 tsp water /rose water and mix well
apply on face
leave for 2 minutes
wet hands and scrub the mask well. wash off with water
I did not have rose water with me...so I use water.And applied it as instructed.. however,I left it for 5 minutes
RESULTS
My skin was glowing  after day one first use,I kid you not.It also felt smooth to touch .
after using the 2nd day consecutively...I found the same result...I have used it only for 4 days as of now everyday...and loove it.
Whether there are any long term effects still remains to be seen..;)
What I loved about it:

  1. smooth  skin.
  2. gives a glow.
  3. mild enough according to me to use everyday...(this has not been mentioned on the pack or anywhere else on the site ,So i assumed that was the case since its a herbal product!!!)
  4. no drying of skin
  5. did not break me out.
  6. No artificial fragrance
  7. This product is more like the Ubtan our mothers used to make us use when we were young....IT smells like the besan-malai thingy mom put n my face.....I told my mom that and she was so amused....that I remembered it ...I hated it back then..and now I will do anything o have my young skin back!!!LOL
  8. very small amount needed at a time ,so will go a long way 
  9. P.S My hubby used it too and he loves it too:P
What I Did not like about the  product
  1. I am a sucker for wow fragrances,so would want a ice smelling product on my face...however this is easily corrected with rose water.
  2.  expensive Rs 650 for 50 gm of product
  3. Jar form ..hygiene issue..however they have mentioned use a spoon.....
  4. a biit time consuming esp on a weekday morning..I have been using it in the evenings:P
would I repurchase  yes ..when I get  a chance to get to  the store..

sounds exciting.. just the price is an issue. however if there is some special occasion then this would be awesome to use before makeup.
an aside, i have noticed that products containing oats absorb water and swell up , thus being softened even further. you may want to soak this in some water / or rose water for 5 mins or so before you put it on.
