I first discovered KeSARI skin care at the Mzia Shiman Spa on 59th Street and 5th Avenue. I was having a facial – one of the best facials of recent years, I might add – and KeSARI products were being used on my skin. I instantly fell in love with India’s best kept beauty secret.

And now I’m not only sharing it with you — I’m going to do a GIVEAWAY!!!

But first, a bit about the line. KeSARI is inspired by India’s natural healing ingredients and ancient traditions.

KeSARI means Saffron in Hindi.   The expensive and potent natural resource is known as the Spice of the Gods and has been used in Indian beauty rituals for centuries to firm and smooth dry skin.  Coming from the dried stigmas of the saffron crocus, it takes 75,000 blossoms or 225,000 hand-picked stigmas to make a single pound.  One ounce of saffron is literally worth its weight in gold.

The line consists of 3 skincare products:

Pore Minimizing Indian Clay Masque – Featuring Triphala Radiance™ complex, Saffron, Indian clay, Kokum Butter, Aloe Vera, and Hyaluronic Acid; this masque deep-cleans, minimizes the appearance of pores, and moisturizes the skin. $29.50/6 oz 

Triphala Radiance Firming Serum  –  three transforming herbal extracts –  Amla, Bibitaki and Haritaki – fuse together to replenish and reawaken skin, imparting pure and natural radiance.  $49.50/1.7 oz 

Dark Circle Brightening Cream with Triphala Radiance™ and Eyeseryl® for Puffy Eyes– A unique combination of Indian Botanicals, Peptides, Hyaluronic Acid, vitamins C and K1, and Chamomile counteract three prime signs of aging around the eye area—moisture loss, reduction of elasticity, and free radical damage. $37.90/ 15 ml


We will be giving away 1 full size mask and 1 full size eye cream (above) – both are must-haves for beautiful, radiant skin!

Total Value: $67.40

    I love Beauty Banter and faithfully read each one I get via my email. You’ve given so much great info, and I’ve tried many of the products you’ve talked about. I’d love to win this, as I love Indian products, probably because my step-father was Indian. He introduced me to Indian food and I fell in love! He always told me coriander was a cure for just about anything, and I totally believe that. The women there are just beautiful, so they must be doing something right! What a great giveaway! Thanks so much, even if I don’t win.

  • I am an esthetician and looking for a new line so I’m excited about the giveaway! Thanks!

    The packaging is so beautiful- I love a well-designed beauty product. I’ve been looking for a great firming serum and eye cream for ages- late night sewing makes me look like a zombie in the morning. I’ve never used Indian products before, but would like to try something new.
