Sanskrit Saponins is a pH-balanced cleansing balm powered by unrefined Ayurvedic plant extracts.
Sanskrit Saponins deeply cleanses the skin of dirt, oil, dead skin cells, and other impurities, leaving it fresh, clean, and nearly poreless. While many cleansers remove only surface dirt, Sanskrit Saponins clears away blemish-causing buildup and bacteria deep within the pores to reveal a healthy radiance.
Massage a small amount between damp palms to create a paste. Massage gently into wet skin, avoiding the eye area. Rinse thoroughly. Your skin may feel mildly dry for a few minutes before returning to normal. For a deeper cleanse, massage into a paste and apply to dry, makeup-free skin. Leave on for five minutes before rinsing thoroughly.
Use Sanskrit Saponins every other day in the morning or at night. Because Sanskrit Saponins is not intended to remove makeup, we recommend Low-Viscosity Cleaning Ester as a gentle makeup remover.
To anyone who read the review that says this smells bad– they're crazy! This smells almost cocoa-buttery. I absolutely love the subtle scent.
It has a creamy consistency and glides over wet or dry skin well. I love massaging this into my skin and leaving it on for a few minutes. The tube says to only apply in AM or PM every other day, which I don't understand. I'm not sure what ingredients are too harsh for 2x daily use, but I'm treading with caution.
I'm usually a fan of lathering cleansers. That said, I ordered a second tube of Sanskrit Saponins to keep one by the sink and one in the shower! This one doesn't lather, but cleanses skin better than any cleanser I've tried, and my skin feels decongested and way cleaner than any other cleanser *without* feeling stripped! I have extremely clog-prone skin and this along with hylamide HEFC, CAIS 5%, MMHC2, salicylic acid, granactive retinal emulsion, and flavonone mud are totally rehabbing my skin! DECIEM has been nothing short of life-changing for me. The only thing I'd change: this needs to come in a pump like the Chemistry brand Hand Chemistry. It's level of viscosity would work fine in this pump. I do loathe the metal tubes but the product is so good I deal with it and still give it 5 stars!
My colleague had given me a generous sample of this cleanser when she had purchased it forever ago and once we started carrying NIOD on the site, I knew I had to purchase my own tube! I like that it comes in a squeeze tube, very easy to use and allows me to control how much product I use. I use this probably about every other day, apply to dry skin, then use just a touch of water to spread all over then rinse off. This DOES NOT lather, so if you are into a foaming cleanser, this is not the one for you, its more akin to a milky cleanser. It really does help to decongest without stripping the skin of any essential oils or moisture and just leave it feeling clean and healthy.
The smell is not off putting to me, it's more sort of like...fresh earth? I will say that if you keep it for a really long time then the scent does turn into something a bit more weird but if kept and used once you pop open the seal on it, the scent is pretty nice. I took off one star because part of me wishes it had a flip top on it instead of a screwed cap but....I do like that its got that metal seal (the kind where you flip the cap to poke it open) so it stays fresh up until you break the seal!
I've only used this twice and really feel the difference after is use it,,, very clean soft skin
Works well with my clarisonic brush, cleanses well without stripping. Love the medicinal smell! I use it 3 - 4 times in a week, alternating with Omorovicza and other oil cleansers. I use this for when I need a deeper cleanse.
So I decided to purchase this on a whim. I wanted to try something different. I received the product and was excited to use it. It smells HORRIBLE! It smells like dried vomit. The smell bothers me so much that I cannot use this product.
I love using this product a few times a week to get a good cleansing. I also use this cleanser as a mask once a week, once my skin is clean and dry I apply a thin layer and let it sit on my face for 10 minutes, then rinse off. It leaves my skin super clean without a tight dry feeling.
It does help clear up congestion a little bit, and isn’t too drying. I do wish the ph of this was lower, but it’s not too insanely high. I can not for the life of me make it into anything that can even be thought of as a “lather” though
This brand is really cool and their packaging is beautiful, but I think that this formula just isn't right for my skin. I've been using it a couple of times a week for about a month and a half, and while there isn't usually much immediate irritation, I've noticed that after a few hours the skin on my cheeks feels quite rough and sensitive.
It's subtle enough that I don't feel I need to discontinue using it, but on the other hand, aside from the mild irritation I'm not really noticing any additional effects—good or bad!
This won't stop me from trying other NIOD products—I am definitely still on board, it's just that this one is sort of "meh" for the price point. Also, the smell is NOT as bad as the other reviews are stating. To me, it just smells a bit chocolatey and earthy.
Has an odd peanut smell, texture was fine but didn't notice improvement in skin after using for little over a month, so I had returned it.
