Face packs and ubtans are my favourite weekly clean up product for problem free skin. I love using homemade multani mitti face packs but the biggest issue with that is the time and effort needed to put up with a homemade mask.
Plus, it needs too much trying and testing to decide on the exact quantity of ingredients to make an effective homemeade ubtan or pack.

The face pack is free from harmful preservatives so the packaging ensures the safety of the product inside and prevents contamination. The pack mentions complete ingredients list with amount detail which I find amazing.
Colour & Consistency: The pack is free from artificial colorants. It has the colour of multani mitti which is the main ingredient. The consistency is medium. It does not feel very drying on the skin as it contains oils of sunflower, lavender and rose.
Fragrance: This pack has amazing herbal fragrance. Its smell is a soothing mix of lavender and rose. The smell does not feel too strong yet it supplies a fresh burst to my senses. Major part of the fragrance goes off as you wash the pack off your face. Just a faint hint remains for a few minutes.

You can buy it at good price. This pack has has no other sizes available. Even if you are a first time user, you have to buy the 100gm size; no way to test the travel size.
My Overall Thoughts:
Multani mitti suits my acne-prone combination skin quite well so I always buy readymade face packs with this magic clay. Only multani mitti can cause dryness but this VLCC face pack contains multani mitti as base, aloe extract, oils of rose, sunflower and lavender.
The combinations seemed killer so I wasted no time to get this one. I have been using this pack a lot. I am on the verge of finishing my second tube.
Unlike most multani mitti based packs, VLCC Ayurveda Multani Mitti Face Pack does not get cracking dry easily. It stays moist for long and soaks up only the excess oil from my skin. I apply it on my slightly moist freshly clenased skin.
I keep it for about 8-12 minutes. As it gets dry, it feels relaxing and cooling due to moisture evaporation.
The awesome fragrance soothes the senses. After application the skin definitely feels smoother, softer to touch and pores look minimized temporarily.
I sometimes add a little rice flour and honey to to create my own ubtan. It does not irritate the sensitive parts of my face or cause acne outbreak.
