Hope you all are doing well! Today is the last day of the month, thought of sharing with you all my experience with a very natural scrub from Patanjali known as Body Ubtan. The word Ubtan brings back a lot of pleasant memories from my childhood. On the festival of Holi, my mom would prepare this homemade Ubtan with a lot of ingredients from her kitchen and we all would sit in the balcony to remove our colors with the help of that paste. It used to be so much of fun!
When I saw this product in the Patanjali store the other day, the smell of that homemade Ubtan was afresh in my mind and I immediately picked it up! I always go to that shop in search of some natural and ayurvedic skincare products. Read below to know more about the Patanjali Body Ubtan.
Natural Ubtan for the skin that rejuvenates it and brings glow/shine to the skin.
Directions for Use: Add sufficient quantity of rose water in 20-30 Gms of this Ubtan to make a consistent paste. Apply on face and body area then massage gently. Rinse off with water.
• Chiraunji (Cuddapah Almond)
• Red Lentils
• Black gram
• Mustard seeds
Price: INR 60 for 100 Gms.
Packaging: The Ubtan comes in a sachet of 100 Gms off-white and yellow in color. The name of the brand and product is printed on the front along with the net weight. Other useful information like directions for use, ingredient list, price etc. is mentioned at the back of the packet. I liked the packaging as it is quite easy and convenient to carry in a small pouch of your bag.
My Experience with Patanjali Body Ubtan:
Since the Ubtan comes in powder form, there is no issue of hygiene as it can easily be taken out with the help of a dry spoon (I personally am not a fan of paste form since it becomes a little messy). Another benefit of the powdery texture is that wastage is less; you can mix as much product that is required in batches. There is no issue of the paste drying out in the packet also.
As soon as I opened the pack, I was impressed with the fragrance. You can smell that turmeric and camphor so distinctly! The scent gives a feeling of freshness. I have not tried making the paste with rose water as directed; I mixed some cold water instead as rose water was not handy. The paste needs to be made a little thick and moist in order for it to stick to the skin, otherwise it becomes very dry and keeps falling off while application. For dry skin, you can even mix it with some milk or curd and apply.
Directions mention that you need to apply and massage, however I keep it on my skin for 5 to 7 minutes and then start rubbing. Best time to use this Ubtan is while taking a bath. It gives an instant glow and clean skin after application leaving the skin soft. Mine skin type is oily, so it did remove that excess oil from my face for almost a day. You can use it 2 to 3 times a week as all the ingredients in it are natural and would not harm your skin. I found this Ubtan very effective and useful as it takes away the hassle of looking out for so many natural ingredients and mixing them up to make an ubtan at home. Also, when you are in a hurry and do not have time to go to the parlor before attending a special event or party, this will come as your savior at home!
