If you’ve been searching for effective natural and organic skincare, Urban Veda Ayurvedic skincare is for you! I revised my regular skincare routine for three weeks using only Urban Veda products. Read on to find out how I achieved glowing results.
So what is Natural Ayurvedic Skincare?
Originating in India over 5000 years ago, Ayurveda is an ancient health and wellbeing system based around a holistic knowledge of plants and their therapeutic properties. The Urban Veda range balances elemental damage and is packed with potent botanicals to calm, clarify and soothe the skin and senses.

Urban Veda Skincare
Best For Dull & Dehydrated Skin
The Daily Radiance Facial Wash is super-hydrating and has a silky gel formula that brightens and deeply cleanses the skin using Ayurvedic Turmeric and a botanical infusion of Marigold, Patchouli and Coriander to revitalise lack-lustre skin. If you’re dubious about skin-brightening products, you needn’t worry as the gentle natural formula targets blemishes to even out skin tone. It leaves skin feeling cleansed, hydrated and soft after each use. The Daily Radiance Facial Wash sets itself apart from regular facial washes with its unique and exotic blend of Sweet Orange, Cedarwood, Frankincense, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Marigold and Lavender Oil. The scent is gentle and calming for the senses.
Best For Dehydrated Skin
After using the facial wash, I applied Urban Veda’s Radiance Hydration Toner. A gentle formula enriched with nourishing and brightening botanicals of Turmeric, Papaya and Goji berry. This super-fruit infusion restores the skin’s natural pH balance after cleansing whilst gently evening skin tone. I loved using this product each morning and evening as it left my skin feeling soft, plump and hydrated. The natural scent is a bonus as it’s both gentle and exquisite, leaving you with a freshly cleansed feeling for hours.
Best For Normal to Sensitive Skin Types
To lock in moisture after my cleansing and toning routine, I applied Urban Veda’s Soothing Day Cream. A Sandalwood enriched cream infused with Sweet Almond Oil, Aloe Vera Juice and Lavender Oil to soothe and clarify skin. Its rich yet non-greasy consistency absorbs into the skin and leaves it feeling soft, plump and hydrated. This luxurious face cream has a natural zesty scent from a blend of essential oils including Ylang Ylang, Lemongrass, Rose Geranium and Sweet Orange, perfectly balanced to soothe the senses.
Best For Normal to Sensitive Skin Types
If you require a gentle and effective exfoliator for sensitive skin, Urban Veda’s Soothing Exfoliating Facial Scrub is for you! This creamy scrub removes dulling debris and restores radiance for that salon-quality facial experience at home. It contains very finely milled Volcanic pumice to gently exfoliate whilst Sandalwood, Myrrh, and Clary Sage help to soothe and moisturise the skin. This scrub is so effective I found applying it once or twice a week was sufficient to clarify my skin and restore a glowing complexion.
Best For Tired/Mature Skin (Tri-Doshic)
Along with the Daily Radiance Facial Wash and Soothing Day Cream, Urban Veda’s Reviving Facial Oil is my favourite skincare product. It’s antioxidant and omega-rich to recharge tired skin with soothing extracts of Rose, Shatavari and Jasmine. The Reviving Facial Oil rejuvenates and nourishes skin using an organic blend of Argan, Borage, Evening Primrose, Rosehip, Wheatgerm and Sea Buckthorn plant oils. Furthermore, it is fast-absorbing and leaves skin moisturised and super-soft to the touch. It’s an excellent sealant for locking in moisture after cleansing and will win you over with its fresh and soothing scent.
My Final Verdict
Urban Veda products offer clean skincare that delivers fantastic results. What sets them apart from similar Ayurvedic brands is their use of potent ingredients that truly harmonise with your skin. If you’re looking for natural and clean skincare which relieves persistent skin complaints and works for even the most sensitive skin types Urban Veda is the new go-to brand.
