Shankara.com Review and Giveaway

I love skincare products and always enjoy trying the latest products. Shankara is skincare heaven for me!

What is Shankara?
Shankara is truly more than a wonderful skin care line. Behind everything we do is a strong intent to serve humanity, from producing the finest, most energetic products possible to the donation of 100% of the net profits to global humanitarian work.

Nurturing the Beauty in You...Consciously Shankara delivers a ground-breaking, natural collection of retail and professional products for face and body.

The Shankara Skincare System produces true skin transformation and enhances your authentic beauty.

Our approach is original and holistic. Shankara is the alchemical pairing of western anti-aging breakthroughs with the eastern science of Ayurveda, the ancient Science of Life." Shankara products are created using cold processed, synergistic blends of anti-aging, antioxidant-rich active ingredients, combined with highly nutritive, therapeutic, and aromatherapeutic essential oils. We"ve covered all the bases.

I was sent full sized samples of:
Hydrating Cleansing Gele
Microcrystal Exfoliation Treatment
Regenesis-Energen ATP Cell Serum
Ayurveda-Energen Facial Oil II



Microcrystal Exfoliation Treatment
6% Ultra-fine magnesium oxide crystals are blended in a nourishing base of 56% pure algae-aloe gel to give professional quality results from a dermal exfoliation self-treatment. Produces an immediate, noticeable appearance and feeling of more youthful skin results after only one treatment. With daily exfoliation of the skin's surface with Shankara's Microcrystal Exfoliation Treatment, aging effects continue to decrease as fine lines fade and wrinkles and sagging are reduced. Skin tone evens out and discolorations fade. The skin takes on a renewed look of refined radiance. Diatomaceous earth and Ayurvedic herbs help purify new skin as old cells are removed. The ultra-fine crystals do not damage tissues or remove the skin's natural acid mantle. The anti-inflammatory algae-aloe gel base soothes new skin as it leaves a hydrating film of protection after rinsing. PH 5.5-5.6, balanced for skin.



Ayurveda-Energen Facial Oil II
100% pure, accelerated, rich nutrient oil deeply penetrates skin to regenerate, oxygenate, balance, restore and deliver age-preventing antioxidant protection to maintain youthful healthy radiant skin. 100% pure, accelerated, rich nutrient oil deeply penetrates skin to regenerate, oxygenate, balance, restore and maintain youthful healthy radiant skin. Concentrates of essential fatty acids and therapeutic essential oils deliver and retain moisture in dry skin without clogging pores. Ayurvedic herbs and antioxidant nutrients support repair of damaged tissue, rejuvenate skin and help prevent aging. Aromatherapeutic essential oils bring a calming balance for the vata dosha while treating dry vata skin. The oil plumps, smoothes and softens fine lines and wrinkles and gives skin a youthful radiant glow. Non-comedogenic. Moderate natural UV protection; PH neutral for all skin.


Regenesis-Energen ATP Cell Serum

100% active serum is structured and energized in a proprietary process to provide ultimate deep tissue repair and regeneration with skin-firming effects. Shankara's exclusive Regenesis-EnergenTM BioComplex accelerates the age-reversal process. Preliminary clinical tests showed significant line and wrinkle reduction, as well as major increase in cellular oxygen and hydration. The addition of stabilized skin-soluble Vitamin C Esteri increases the effectiveness, beyond the claims listed. PH 5.5-5.6, balanced for skin.



Hydrating Cleansing Gele
Mild and non-irritating cleanser with naturally derived foaming cleansing ingredients in a unique amino acid complex that nourishes and leaves skin feeling moist and silky soft. Hydrating Cleansing Gele' contains Shankara's exclusive regenerating, antioxidant Ayurveda Energen Complex with Ayurvedic herbs, activated extracts and monoatomic elements. Mild and non-irritating, the naturally derived foaming cleansing ingredients are combined with moisturizing olive oil, macadamia nut oil, lecithin, algae extract, and a unique hydrating amino acid complex that nourishes and leaves skin feeling moist and silky-soft after cleansing. PH 5.5-5.6, balanced for skin, protects the natural acid mantle, thereby eliminating the need for a toner.






I really think these products are amazing. I used the gele last night followed by the exfoliation treatment. The first thing that I noticed about the gele was that it had a strong smell. The product quickly foamed into a lather and made my skin feel very smooth and clean. I think the exfoliation treatment is my favorite. It is packed small into a little jar, but is amazing! It comes with a little applicator that you use to put on your skin. It exfoliates very well, and even though it's rough that's how you know it's a good exfoliator. It made my skin feel great.
The other two products made my skin look good too. I noticed that all of the products are all similiar colors, I'm not sure why that it, but it was interesting. I think Shankara products are truly dedicated to helping you to achieve having the best skin possible! I will be using these products solely from now on!

  1. I like several things about the Shankara website and their company.
    On the website I like the beautiful slide show and I learned that they have a 130 acre farm in Texas.
    I'm impressed with their commitment to quality of ingredients in their skin care product line. I like & trust this statement: Shankara...
    "Perfecting the dance between Ayurvedic tradition and modern technology...Inner and outer beauty may have been bottled at last."
