ABOUT THIS BRANDMichelle Ranavat, Founder of RANAVAT, was inspired by the traditional Ayurvedic skin care treatments passed down to her, and over the years saw first-hand the potency and efficacy of traditional Indian botanicals. Her background in engineering inspired her to modernize these treatments and craft an Ayurvedic skin care line that was based on the principle of “ingredients first” – extracted purely to keep all vitamins, minerals and skin-enhancing properties as close to nature as possible. RANAVAT beautifully blends traditional ingredients into formulas that inspire moments of regal ritual and self-care.
I actually love this more than the cream cleanser. Actually sooths my skin while exfoliating.
Overall, great product! I'm not into intense exfoliation, and for me this is very gentle to use in place of an am cleanser every now and then! For pm, this could work as a second cleanse after a balm cleanser to remove sunscreen/makeup. I love leaving this on for a couple extra minutes since my skin tends to be dry and the ingredients are so nourishing. All of Ranavat packaging, both the previous and current version, have been gorgeous! Even though I was a little confused to see extra packaging from a blue beauty standpoint, the box is so sturdy that it could even be reused if there was a system to send it back! would love to see a program like that as the first of its kind
Hi Anna, Thank you for the feedback on the Ranavat Imperial Glow Facial Polish. We love this idea! We are so happy that you are loving this product and that you are able to use it morning and night. We love the gentle exfoliation too and are happy to hear you have found a hero in this product : )
I love morning exfoliation and this is one of my all-time favourites. So happy I had a chance to try this brand in the Discovery Box and will definitely be reordering and trying the rest of the line.
Hi Avalon, We are so excited that you were able to discovery the Emperial Glow Facial Polish in our Ranavat Discovery! This is one of our favorite Hero Products as well! Thank you for sharing!
I'm not a huge fan of physical exfoliation because I have sensitive skin. However, the grains in this one tend to melt/soften and so I can use it and I do enjoy it occasionally. I put Luminous Ceremony cleanser on first to melt makeup, then put this over top and massage before rinsing, and the cream cleanser cushions the exfoliating grains a little. I'm unhappy with all the new packaging that Ranavat products come with. The boxes are unnecessary and contrary to the "blue beauty" principles that I appreciate in Beauty Heroes. As mentioned previously, the boxes aren't really reusable. I like Ranavat, but don't want to pay for excessive packaging that goes straight into the recycling bin.
Hi Laura, Thank you for this thoughtful review. We definitely hear you, and are always working on thoughtful packaging updates with our brand partners. I am sure RANAVAT will love receiving this thoughtful feedback. Thank you for taking the time to review Imperial Glow.
Too harsh for face. Wouldn't buy it if it wasn't in a beauty box
Thank you for sharing your experience, Ira. We've found Imperial Glow to be relatively gentle however it definitely is a personal experience. We hope you enjoyed the other two products in our March Discovery!
