Samaya Kapha Supplement Review

Hi friends! This is Day 6 of Pandemic Blogging here. A lot has happened lately but I hope we are all doing fine and are holding on. It’s times like these where we learn more about ourselves and about each other, and that the true measure of the strength of our characters lie in how we hold onto hope and the courage to face our challenges. So, let us all be strong, be hopeful, and be courageous.

Now is the time that we take good care of our own health so we can be as healthy as we can be and for our loved ones as well. There are a lot of things we can do. First, we really need to practice social distancing. We may not be sick but it doesn’t mean that we’re not incubating the v because we haven’t been tested at all. So, if we’re not careful, we can put our elderlies at risk. Also, even if you’re young, you can still get the v and the symptoms vary a lot for everybody. Some had had it mild while some experienced the opposite, but mind you, it’s never easy when you’re sick. So better be on the safe side, right? Apart from social distancing, we can also keep our bodies healthy, and that includes keeping up with our exercises or to simply keep moving. We may be working from home now, but it’s still important to get some fresh air (walk around the house/yard) or do our stretches so we can keep our circulations going.

Another thing I like to do lately is to take my vitamins and supplements. Sometimes I used to skip this but lately, I try to make sure that I take them diligently. So, if you have some Vitamin C or any Multivitamins at home, please take them. They could potentially boost your immune system. However, times are hard nowadays and you may not be able to get your hands on any vitamins or supplements, not to mention being wary about going to your local grocery store, but it’s ok. As long as you try to keep yourself healthy by eating a more balanced diet, despite the lack of variety or availability of fruits and vegetables we can get nowadays and practice a healthy lifestyle in general, then you won’t be needing any vitamins or supplements at all. The most important thing is that you are safe and you are well.

For me personally, I’ve been liking the supplements from Samaya Ayurveda. I reviewed this brand before (here and here) and I really like their natural Ayurvedic products because they are clean, vegan, kosher, non-GMO, and cruelty-free. As someone whose Dosha (bodily energy in Ayurvedic medicine) belongs to the Kapha range, I had a chance to try Samaya’s Kapha Supplements (60 capsules: Β£39) which contain a blend of Ayurvedic herbs, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, CoQ10, Turmeric, Gotu Kola, Aloe Vera, and Ginger among other things. These ingredients help to promote energy, metabolism, skin collagen formation, tissue repair, and immunity support, as well as it helps in balancing oily skin which a lot of Kapha people like me tend to experience. I love that this supplement is made of natural ingredients and this doesn’t irritate my stomach. Also, this has no aftertaste and I haven’t experienced any side-effects. I’ve been taking this for a couple of weeks now and this helps in improving my energy level and this also helps with my skin. I start to notice a more subtle glow and I will keep taking this to see if this improves my skin’s elasticity as well. I also like that this has the essential vitamins needed for strong immunity which is beneficial nowadays. Apart from the healthy ingredients that this supplement has, I also like its sleek packaging which comes in a beautiful matte jar and is safe and easy to store anywhere. Overall, I recommend that you take a look at this au-naturel supplement and hope you enjoy it as much I do.

Samaya Ayurvedic Skincare Review

samaya ayurveda skincare review


Hi guys, today’s post is an exciting one because we’ll talk about clean skincare, and it’s not just all about clean and natural skincare products, it’s also about a skincare brand based on Ayurvedic principles. Isn’t that cool? I mean, with all the different skincare items spurting every minute nowadays, I feel like it’s about time that we really take a closer look at the ingredients that we put on our skin. While it’s true that there’s a been a huge buzz of using and promoting clean and all-natural skincare ingredients, I feel like there’s this one particular brand that has put a lot of emphasis on quality ingredients when it comes to skincare. If you haven’t heard about them before, then take a closer look at this London-based skincare brand called Samaya.


Samaya is an all-natural skincare brand that is based on the principles of Ayurveda. In Sanskrit, Ayurveda means “Life Knowledge” or “Science of Life”, and this principle promotes a holistic approach when it comes to achieving a balance to our bodily system. One way of achieving that is to pay attention to our lifestyle in general. Having a sound mind and sound body requires regular exercise, nourishing diet, enough sleep, adequate relaxation and of course, proper self-care. If those things aren’t balanced, then chances are our stress levels go high and our skin will suffer. I, for one, can attest to that.

Samaya’s top quality all-natural Ayurvedic ingredients in skincare are really something that will also help us achieve healthy and balanced skin. They offer a curated approach by providing a personalized skincare range, that is, according to your skin type and skincare needs. The goal is to help you achieve your “Samadosha” or to achieve “a perfect balance in our lives” starting with your skin.


To achieve your Samadosha, Samaya provides an online quiz (click HERE) to determine your Dosha type. Doshas are the energies that govern each individual, kinda like their characters. There are primarily three types: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.


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


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


Kapha – Laidback 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.


As you can guess, my Dosha is definitely Kapha. I do have clogged pores and I tend to have excess oil on my skin. Samaya sent me two of the products from their Kapha range to try and here’s what I think…


Samaya Kapha Anti-Ageing Treatment Oil review


Kapha Anti-Ageing Treatment Oil (30 ml: Β£94.80) – This lightweight facial oil has a concentrated blend of Ayurvedic botanicals and it has a very relaxing earthy scent. Its key ingredients are Sandalwood oil, Frankincense oil, Vetivert Oil, Gotu Kola Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Turmeric Root, and Ashwagandha Root Extract to mention a few. It’s also free from Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates, synthetic color/fragrance, mineral oils, silicones and more. I normally avoid using facial oils on my face but this particular oil actually makes my skin smooth. My skin had gone through a lot this Winter and it has some dry patches that I’ve been trying to hydrate. Luckily, with this facial oil, my face has been very moisturized and it feels really soft. It’s non-sticky and I only need one pump to cover my entire face and I massage it gently on my skin for a very relaxing feel. It has a very rejuvenating effect and it makes the face look plump and healthy. You can use this oil right after cleansing and moisturizing the face. On me, I use this as a substitute for my moisturizer.


Samaya Kapha Anti-Ageing Treatment Oil review


Kapha Renewing Exfoliant (50 ml: Β£70.80) – This is a very interesting enzyme exfoliant because, upon application, this doesn’t feel gritty or scratchy at all. Instead, this actually feels very creamy like a very hydrating facial mask. After washing this off, my face feels really smooth and soft, almost like baby skin. I find that the exfoliating action of this is very gentle but its effect is definitely obvious, and I did notice my skintone looking more radiant and more glowy after every use. I also like the relaxing earthy scent of this exfoliant, and it has Pineapple enzymes, Sodium Hyaluronate, Aloe Leaf, Jojoba, Vitamin E, Avocado and powerful Ayurvedic ingredients such as Amla, Gotu Kola, Vetivert, Sandalwood, Turmeric, Neem, and Ashwagandha, etc. You can use this exfoliating cream every other day and apply this like a face mask, massage gently, and wait 20 minutes before rinsing this off. For deeper exfoliation, leave this on overnight.

Bottom line, I highly recommend this brand and for those of my readers who live in the UK, you guys should check out Samaya’s all-natural Ayurvedic ingredients in skincare. I love their holistic approach to taking care of the skin and the fact that they tailor their products according to your specific skincare needs. Because, after all, if the mind, body, and soul are in perfect harmony then our skin will reflect that from within.
