We have 10 leave-on-overnight exfoliants from this cult organic brand to give away, each worth £59

SAMAYA crept up on us like a stealth missile. The brand wasn't on our radar until the SAMAYA Anti-Ageing Cream completely wowed our Beauty Bible testers in the Miracle Treatment category for our last Awards, romping off with a Silver Award against tens of really well known brands. It also won the Best Natural Award. (Actually, the brand has now won a whole heap of other awards too, testimony to the products’ outstanding efficacy in a huge marketplace.)

Reading the testers’ comments is pretty amazing. You can read them all here – but this is a taste: ‘Within 24 hours, my skin was softer, smoother and super hydrated. After two weeks, it was brighter and had a lovely glow with reduced dry patches. At the end of the trial my skin is definitely more radiant, and fine lines decreased. For sure, my skin looks younger.’

They all loved the elegant packaging, the natural fragrance, and the fact that it gave ‘VISIBLE’ (that’s the tester’s capitals) results. They commented that although the products are expensive, they last for a very long time.

SAMAYA is based on Ayurvedic principles, which aim for a perfect balance in everything. The founder, beautiful Abida Halstenberg, grew up in India steeped in Ayurveda, the traditional healthcare system - the name means science of life.  Later Abida, by now settled in London, searched for a range of top quality, all natural and organic Ayurvedic skincare – in vain.  So… with the help of expert chemists, she set up SAMAYA.

On the website,, you will find a questionnaire to discern your dosha, the type of energies that govern each one of us. Each of the three doshas, vata, pitta and kapha, corresponds to a set of physical and emotional traits. SAMAYA products are subtly different for each dosha. However, Beauty Bible testers all trialled the vata version and, as we’ve said, the results were spectacular.

Now, SAMAYA is launching a new, enzyme-based, leave-on facial exfoliant called Renewing Exfoliant, based on a cocktail of powerful botanicals. Pumpkin fruit ferment filtrate (phew…) is the key ingredient, supported by aloe, sodium hyaluronate, jojoba, avocado and vitamin E. These marry with Ayurvedic ingredients such as rose, turmeric and holy basil to transform dull skin. We've found it really does leave skin brighter, softer and radiant. (And in Jo's case, evened out a self-tan that had gone a bit patchy.)

We are delighted to offer Beauty Bible readers the chance to win one of this truly fabulous new product – we’ve been trying it ourselves and we are very impressed. Working gently on the outer layers of skin, it actually  dissolves the keratin protein that binds dead skin cells to our skin, revealing a smoother clearer complexion underneath. Use it every other night – you won’t need moisturiser afterwards – and watch its effect on fine lines, open pores, pigmentation, scarring and sun damage.
