Product details:

  • Ingredients:

40F6A156-561A-47DC-B806-85A12C2BF5C5

  • Description:

Pure lavender water which is therapeutic and calming, nourishing oat kernel extract and stimulating neroli oil combine with zinc, known for its healing and regenerative qualities, to firm and clarify the skin. Especially customized for Normal to Oily skin with SPF 25 that offers long-lasting protection from the harsh rays of the sun. The skin remains moist and well hydrated, without being oily.

  • Directions:

After cleansing and toning, take a small amount and massage gently using upwards strokes on face and neck with fingertips.

My Experience:

Forest Essentials is a brand I love. This day lotion with spf is a blessing for oily skin beauties like me. 

Packaging: It comes in a bottle with pump dispenser that is sturdy, hygienic & luxurious. The only con is that it is opaque and we cant figure out how much product is left out. Also, there is wastage in the finishing stage. Ending up wasting such an expensive product is really disturbing. 

Texture: It has a rich creamy texture and less than a pea size amount is enough for the entire face & neck. Hence, this 40ml will last for 2+ months. 

Fragrance: The lavender fragrance is soothing & relaxing. All FE products are carefully designed to give aromatherapy benefits and that’s why I love indulging in my skin care routine with them. The whole ritual is made holistic.

Ingredients analysis: The SPF 25 is due to yashada bhasma aka zinc oxide, a naturally occuring mineral. All ingredients listed are rich, promising & designed to delivers goodness to the skin but am not sure if this is the full list. 

Efficiency: It spreads really well and blends quickly. It gives a semi matte finish and is not sticky or greasy and leaves no white cast at al. Im one who mostly stays indoors with occasional sun exposure here and there, SPF 25 will suffice my needs. People with longer sun exposure may need a higher spf. Apart from sun protection, it also gives the right hydration that easily lasts for 5-6 hrs. The best part is it improves the skin texture and evens out skintone over time(observed this when used for 3+ months). I love the way it soothes sensitive skin, suppresses active acne & pimples and helps in calming down reddishness, if any. I would call this a holistic product cos it does more than a day lotion’s job.

Normal to combination and dry skin types can choose the Madurai jasmine & mogra, Indian rose & marigold variants respectively.
