An evening of Rejuvenation

We tried a few massages. The therapies were really relaxing. For those people who have a bent towards yoga, ayurveda and naturopathy this is a good place to feel rejuvenated and relaxed.

For diet and naturopathy they have specially designed  programmes. Loved the ambience there. I would really love to visit again and try other services.

So, when it is time to get rid of dirt, pollution and harmful chemicals from your skin pores in a flick, this gentle and non-greasy range of cleansing milk not only imparts skin clarifying results but also balances the skin pH for a well nourished and healthy skin.

The richness of natural minerals and Provitamin B5 in this fortifying cleanser soothes the skin by removing excess oil without tightening or over drying. The perfect product for makeup lovers with combination skin.

So, what exactly is this product all about ????
1. It has natural properties.
