What Makes It Awesome?

What I loved about Mantra Herbal, apart from the sleek, pastel packaging (I'm always a sucker for great product design), was how earthy it felt to use. The products are organic, and they feel as authentic in use as they promise to be.

I tried five of their products—the Jasmine & Neem body wash, the Jasmine, Triphala and Pearls Body Scrub, the Aloe & Cucumber After Sun Moisturizer, Cinnamon, Honey & Almond Polishing Mudpack, and their Palma Christie & Olive Hair Cleanser.

Of them, the Jasmine, Triphala and Pearls Body Scrub was my favourite—the light fragrance combined with the feeling it gave me of sloughing off the grime of a hot, summer's day was just delightful. The Cinnamon, Honey & Almond Polishing Mudpack was a close second; for me, there was gentle, 20 second burn followed by a soothing pack experience and a feeling of fuller skin afterwards. The Aloe & Cucumber After Sun Moisturizer is also a very refreshing form of after sun care.

What Could Be Better?

I'm hoping to see them grow their range of products even further.

With a penchant for bad Bollywood films, pretentious French films, and any kind of kebab you can name, Saumyaa is that girl at the party who's fun to hang out with till about 12am, after which it is officially past her bedtime. She comes in tow with a love for Dorothy Parker, an unhealthy obsession with Audrey Hepburn, and a cat who doesn't like her very much. Her dream in life' is to have 5 or 6 people say "I've read your writing! it's pretty good! She's getting there.
