Let me introduce you to my skincare crush! Meet Mauli Rituals Radiance Exfoliant…this baby rocks! This gorgeous powder does great things to your skin and I’ve loved this exfoliant for years, but before I tell you all of that let’s get down to basics.

First things first…

This range by Mauli Rituals is based on the principles of Ayurvedic medicine which as you may know is an ancient Indian healing system based on balancing our energies.

The next thing is…

that in terms of a sensory skincare experience this is a winner. It starts with the packaging which is a brown glass jar that is reminiscent of something you’d get from an old school apothecary. The next thing to note is that this heavenly brown powder smells of pure Sandalwood and Rose, which is immensely soothing every time you open the jar.

I simply love the way that this appeals to almost all of the senses…visual, smell and touch; it comes with a small spoon so that you can scoop out the quantity you need without wasting any of it.


It’s a pleasure to indulge in the ritual of having the powder in your hands, adding liquid, mixing it and transforming it into either an exfoliant or a mask.
I’d say allow yourself the time to enjoy this self are ritual, make it a mindful moment where you treat your senses and your skin, without rushing.

Here’s why I love it

I’ve been using this a couple of times a week, immediately after cleansing by mixing it with rose water to make a paste and applying to my skin, leaving it to dry for about 7 or 8 minutes after which time I wet it and massage my face with the paste. Which leaves my skin super glowy, super smooth, super clean and super refined…any signs of fatigue are gone and all I have to do is apply my moisturiser.

The brand says

Our opulent concentrate combines precious Mysore sandalwood to help soothe skin and diminish scars. Kashmiri saffron helps skin tone and texture to impart a healthy glow to pigmented skin. Pure rose otto heals and conditions dry, inflamed skin, while refining texture. Vetiver helps strengthen, while powerful adaptogenic turmeric acts as a natural anti-irritant and provides a barrier that inhibits melanin production. These powerful botanicals are blended in mineral rich clay to help draw out impurities without stripping the skins natural oils and together this vital synergy offers a supreme mask and exfoliant”.

Here’s how you use it:

As a daily exfoliant: Mix one spoon with water or your daily cleanser and massage over wet face and neck; rinse and pat dry.
For a weekly face mask: mix 2-3 spoons with water to form a thick paste. Apply to face and neck and leave to dry. Wash off using our muslin cloth or just water.
