Lever ayush is a newly launched Ayurvedic brand. It brings 5000 years of Ayurvedic wisdom to solve modern lifestyle problems such as dandruff, pimples, premature greying, and dull skin. It uses ingredients that are highly beneficial to the skin and hair. The goodness of ingredients like turmeric, saffron, and cow’s ghee are authentic natural solutions to beauty problems. The brand has exclusive ranges to target specific problems such as “fight pollution with turmeric,” “get a golden glow with saffron,” and “fight dandruff with neem.” I wanted to start with the safest bet: “face wash.”

My Experience with Lever Ayush Therapy Natural Fairness Saffron Face Wash
Packaging: This face wash comes in an opaque white tube with a flip-top cap. The cap shuts tightly, making the product leak-proof. It is wrapped around with a light brown paper sticker that contains all the necessary information. It carries a picture of a bowl full of saffron, which is the main ingredient. All other information, including the ingredients list, is mentioned at the back of the tube. This face wash is sturdy, is easy to carry, and contains 80 g of product. However, this opaque packaging makes it hard to find out how much product is used. For some, it may be a heavy packaging.
Texture: This face wash has a thick creamy consistency. It is light pink in color and smells refreshing. It does not have any exfoliating particles. It needs just a small quantity to lather up, making the face wash last for longer. It is easy to wash off as well. However, if excessive quantity of the product is used, multiple washes are needed to get rid of all traces of the face wash. It has been stated on the packaging that “Ayurvedic composition may result in change of color of the product over time, but this does not change the efficacy of the product.”
Performance: This face wash is enriched with the goodness of both saffron and kumkumadi tailam. Saffron is an Ayurvedic herb with great medicinal value and is known for its brightening and healing properties, and kumkumadi tailam is a unique blend of 16 herbs and oil formulated to cure marks, lighten skin color, and improve skin’s quality. This face wash is so gentle on the skin. At the same time, a small quantity is sufficient enough to clean up the whole face effectively. It removes all dirt and impurities and leaves behind a soft, supple skin. However, it cannot cleanse off makeup. It does reduce the dullness incurred through sun exposure and pollution to an extent but giving a golden glow is a faraway fact. I did not bother about their “fairness” claim being false, never ever done with any fairness products for that matter, but I was disappointed with their “golden glow” claim being false as their core ingredients were so impressive. Otherwise, this face wash was good enough for daily use. This face wash did not irritate my skin. It is neither drying nor moisturizing. Although this face wash holds some good ingredients, it contains preservatives as well. So it is not completely preservative free like Juicy Chemistry Ylang Ylang & Lavender Daily Face Cleanser. However, it is a good option to chemical-filled face washes in the market. From the price point too, it is so affordable compared to other face washes that claim to be natural and chemical free. This face wash is suitable to all skin types. Overall, it is a good everyday natural face wash.
