Dhathri Fairness Face Pack Review



Features: Home facial in 3 minutes

What Dhathri claims?

  • Removes blemishes.
  • Penetrates deep into the skin removing pimples, black spots, dark patches, and blackness around the eyes.
  • Gives glow to the skin.
  • Promotes fairness of the complexion.
  • Anti-inflammatory and antiseptic.
  • Acts as an astringent.

Relieves acne and several skin diseases.


Saffron, lotus, Njazhalpoovu, Nagapoovu, Yavam, Irattimadhuram, Kolarakku, Turmeric, Maramanjal.
Njazhalpoovu and Nagapoovu are two kind of flowers, did not find any suitable image (poovu means flower in Malayalam and Tamil )

Irattimadhuram – a plant used for medicinal purpose in ayurvedha, see the pic below :



Kolarakku – is an root , used for medicinal purpose, see the pic below :




Mara Manjal

Again a medicinal plan, mainly used in Ayurveda to treat ulcer

Source : *http://www.naturemagics.com/ayurveda/mara-manjal.shtm*

*Directions for use:*

Wash face thoroughly. Apply Dhathri Fairness Face pack (after mixing with Tomato juice/Orange juice/Honey/Curd/Rose water/Pure water – according to your skin type ) all over your neck and face. If not lazy. massage gently with water in upward direction. :P. After 3 minutes wash your face in cool water.



  • For oily skin: Tomato juice/Orange juice
  • For dry skin: Honey/Curd/Rose water
  • For regular skin: Pure water

People who are allergic* to besan flour and turmeric can use this – ( tried and tested on moi , who is allergic to besan flour and turmeric ) When I was a kid, my mom tried to use turmeric and besan flour on me. I develpoed those alergy boils. But kasthuri manjal and sandalwood worked for me. Kasturi manjal is also a kind of turmeric, which looks more like dried ginger and when powdered looks like sandalwood powder in colour and texture, it does not have the strong colour/flavor/smell of the normal yellow turmeric. Am not able to find the English name for it πŸ™ South indian chicks in IMBB please explain kasturi manjal in detail. πŸ™‚

*PS : I have dry skin, but I mix this with water and apply it on my face, I use this as a face wash at office πŸ™‚ it does get a lil messy to cleanup, so I just wet few facial tissue papers and wipe off my face after applying this , hope this tip may come handy in emergency situations πŸ˜‰ *

By the side of the box it is written *WHAM** *and the explanation is quite funny and adorable.

Check out the pic :



PS : pics by beau Sajit, this time it was not free (I had to make chapatti and spicy egg curry for him πŸ™ duh,,,,, he read the comments for my last review and understood his demand 😑 arghh !!!!!!!!! )Why men can’t have bread and jam or instant noodles O_O ……………. anyhow its worth bribing him. Next time will try threatening him πŸ˜€

Pros :

  • Nicely priced for 50 grams (120 rs in kerala and tamilnadu and 125 in rest of the city)
  • Whatever the product claims, it works , ahem ahem πŸ˜‰ , this is the greatest PRO of this face mask.
  • Does not dehydrate my skin after using it, it gives a sudden brightness to your face.
  • I do not massage or keep the pack for 3 mins, I just apply it and wash it, even then the result is awsome.
  • Also my sensitive skin is loving it.

Cons :

Availability : If you are in south india you can easily find it in any Kottakkal Arya Vaidya Sala (AVS)Β  outlets or their pharmacies.

In Bangalore and Chennai I saw quite a few outlets. No need to mention vastly available in most of the places in Kerala. But I checked their website, Kottakkal AVS is in delhi, ahmedabad and secundrabad.

PS: Incase you wanna buy this. before going there just call and check out if they stock Dhadhri products πŸ™‚

It comes in a tub and when you open it for the first few times, it spills out a little, otherwise I do not see any other con…

Also I used to be embarrassed to carry it to office , not anymore, coz I know it works wonders for me.

So all ya shiny ladies out here, if you think some products works for ya andwhen people make fun of you about being obsessive of those products, just ignore them, they are just jealous of ya… πŸ˜‰

This reminds me of a quote I saw on a tee shirt .… β€œ Am a Virgo, all the eyes on me and I love all the attention β€œ how true πŸ˜‰

Am a virgo and unfortunately I did not get the perfect fit for moi :’(

Will I repurchase it ? Yes, why not!! gimme a single reason not to πŸ˜€ until I find a better product with better ingredients.

IMBB Star rating:Β  :-*:-*:-*:-*:-* I don’t find anything negative about this product , Am in love with it.

Shai October 11, 2010 at 4:20 pm

I am a writer in an ad agency in Cochin… a bright young lady at work came up with the WHAM concept for this face pack. The product has changed agencies since then, but the WHAM is still there :-)) Like it or not, it worked for the product! And yes, it is a good, effective face pack, my only issue with it is that it doesn’t finish fast enough for me, and I am always worried about contamination.


veena October 12, 2010 at 7:21 am

nice to know that wham is working πŸ˜‰ use a small spoon or spatula to pick it, or put a lil on the lid and then put it on ur hand, do not let any water drip on it πŸ™‚


Priya October 11, 2010 at 5:50 pm

hey veena…great we shd catch up …btw i stay in HSR …so i keep cmg to Madiwala πŸ™‚
