You may have recently seen my post on a beautiful Ayurvedic cleanser, which I’m still enjoying using as it works well for my skin, and is a pleasure to use. I’d now like to share with you the Samaya Vata anti-ageing treatment oil from the same range.
Read more about Samaya Ayurvedic Skincare, plus their beautiful Vata cleanser and exactly what ‘Vata’ means here.
Samaya Vata Anti-Ageing Treatment Oil
This is a concentrated treatment oil, blended using Ayurvedic botanicals, aimed at improving the look of ageing signs and wrinkles on the skin. Containing ingredients such as Rose, Turmeric, Ashwagandha, Gotu Kola and Tulsi, blended together to help calm, brighten and restore skin.
My skin is dehydrated and sensitive, plus now hitting 50 and also menopause, I find I suffer with dryness and a little dullness, if I ever neglect my skin. Now that doesn’t happen often, but being a ‘Spoonie’, if I’m going through periods of fatigue or high pain levels, I occasionally don’t do ‘the full works’. Maintaining good skincare is needed even more as we age, and by adding potent skin-feeding oils, it helps nourish cells and improve skins appearance. This oil works well at calming and firming my skin, whilst giving it a brightness.

The pump dispenser, showed below, is really good and prevents air getting at the blend. It disperses a few drops in one pump, enough for each use on the face and neck.
I started by adding this into my morning skincare routine, as shown in one of my Instagram images below. Although, this has quite a dense viscosity compared to some oils I use. Even though it’s claimed to sink in quickly, I personally find it takes a while and has a tendency to sit on the surface of my skin for a while. So, if I choose to wear makeup and am in a hurry, I mainly go for one of my lighter viscosity oils, preferring to save this for night time use.
I usually use the treatment oil after the Samaya vata cleanser, or other cleansers; depending on what I need to use in my night routine. After cleansing well, I apply one pump of the oil into my hands, then continue to use massage and drainage movements over the face and neck, before I get into bed. I lie on my back for a few minutes, enjoying the relaxing scent, before turning over and sinking into my pillow.
I’ve been using this for around 5-6 weeks now, and find it has a really good anti-inflammatory effect. It calms the broken capillaries under my fine skin, plus brightens and relaxes fine lines. Now I hardly get spots, maybe an occasional hormonal one, but I’ve not had one at all whilst using this. I’ve also found this has had a slight tightening effect on my skin. Using along with another brand oil aimed at ageing during the day, the two seem to be working well together.
Due to Samaya’s beautiful Ayurvedic botanical ingredients, I find the aromas make using the products really enjoyable. This always makes me take longer with my routine, luxuriating in their scents and textures, having more of an experience while I perform my facials. This luxury skincare brand is at the higher end price range, but it’s concentrated and the beautifully blended products will last months to help treat ageing skin.
The ‘Vata’ Anti-ageing Treatment Oil ‘ is available from Samaya Skincare retailing at £70 for 30ml.
