I swear by Forest Essentials products and after reviewing the Kashmiri Saffron & Neem face cleanser and Lavender & Neroli Day cream, I am reviewing another product of my skin care regimen- Forest Essentials Night Treatment Cream Sandalwood & Saffron.
FYI, Sandalwood & Saffron variant is for dry skin
Jasmine & Patchouli is for oily skin
Price: Rs 2575 for 50 g (updated price)
Forest Essentials Night Treatment Cream Sandalwood & Saffron Review
Forest Essentials night treatment cream comes in a plastic jar (which looks like glass btw) with beautiful golden screw cap. The golden cap makes the packaging luxurious. The plastic jar is housed in cardboard packaging with flip open lid.
The fragrance of all Forest Essential products is heavenly. It smells mildly of sandalwood which is calming especially before bedtime. The fragrance has therapeutic effect on me and helps in instant relaxation. The night cream is ivory colored with gel-cream texture. It doesnot feel heavy on my dry skin. It melts on the skin and sinks in easily. But I would recommend oily skinned people to steer clear.
The texture feels just right on my dry skin, neither too heavy nor too light. The cream absorbs instantly making the skin well hydrated and supple. I wake up to soft, plump, radiant and smooth skin. My skin texture has improved and skin is glowing over the months of continued usage. The quantity is sufficient and only a small amount is required. However, it doesnot work on blemishes and pigmentation even though it claims to. So, if you want something for pigmentation issues, it is useless to invest in this cream, no matter how glowy it makes your skin.
The only con I could find with Forest Essentials Sandawood & Saffron night cream is the price. It is fairly expensive but makes the skin radiant so you do see it working.
Overall, I LOVE Forest Essentials Sandalwood & Saffron night treatment cream and this is my favorite night cream so far. It smells like heaven and has calming effect. The texture is neither thick, nor thin. It melts on the skin and absorbs instantly. It doesnot feel heavy on my dry skin, but oily skinned beauties should steer clear. Forest Essentials has Jasmine & Patchouli night cream variant for oily skin which I will review later (even though I donot have oily skin :P). It provides intense hydration but never breaks me out. This night cream makes the skin supple, soft, radiant and plump. My skin texture has improved with continued usage of this cream. However, it doesnot work on pigmentation so don’t buy this especially for pigmentation concerns. Also, the price is expensive but then all Forest Essentials products are so, which is why they call it ‘Luxurious’ Ayurveda 😀 😛
