Forest Essentials Night Treatment Cream Jasmine & Patchouli Review

 

Mr. A’s and my skin is poles apart. He has oily, acne prone skin, whereas I have dry skin in general. But come summers and I start to poke around his skincare products. (This night cream is a find from his section of products) 😀

My current normal-combination skincare consists of only cleansing and moisturizing (+ sunscreen).  I have expressed my love for Forest Essentials products many many times now and in summers these are the products I swear by:  Kashmiri Saffron & Neem face cleanser (reviewed HERE),  Lavender & Neroli Day cream (reviewed HERE) and the Jasmine & Patchouli Night treatment cream, which I am reviewing in this post.

I have already reviewed the Forest Essentials Sandalwood & Saffron night cream HERE, which is for dry skin.

 

Price: Rs 2695 for 50 g

Expiry: 2 years

 

Forest Essentials Night Treatment Cream Jasmine & Patchouli Review

Forest Essentials night treatment cream comes in a plastic jar (which feels heavy and looks like glass) with beautiful golden screw cap. The yellow colored packaging with floral details looks attractive. The golden cap makes the packaging look luxurious. The plastic jar is housed in cardboard packaging with flip open lid.

The fragrance of all Forest Essential products is heavenly. It smells EXACTLY like jasmine flowers. It feels like you are standing next to a blooming jasmine plant. The night cream is very light lemony-yellow in color with gel-cream texture. It  doesnot feel heavy on the skin at all. It melts on the skin and sinks in easily.

The texture feels light and perfect for oily skinned people especially in summers. It however may not feel moisturizing enough for dry skinned beauties. The cream absorbs instantly making the skin well hydrated and supple. I wake up to soft, plump and smooth skin. My skin texture has improved since I have started using this cream. The quantity is sufficient and only a small amount is required.

The only con I could find with Forest Essentials Jasmine & Patchouli night cream is the price. Like all FE products, it is fairly expensive.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Forest Essentials Kashmiri Saffron and Neem Delicate Facial Cleanser : Review

I love Forest Essentials products  and in this post I am reviewing an amazing staple product in my skincare routine- Forest Essentials Kashmiri Saffron and Neem Delicate Facial Cleanser.

I have reviewed some other amazing Forest Essentials product HERE

Forest Essentials Delicate Facial cleanser comes in two variants: Kashmiri Saffron & Neem and Mashobra Honey, Lemon & Rosewater . I have tried both the facewash in their smaller packaging (50ml) and I liked Kashmiri Saffron more so I bought a full size product.

Price:    Rs 1075 for 200ml

                Rs 295 for 50 ml

 

Forest Essentials Kashmiri Saffron and Neem Delicate Facial Cleanser review

Forest Essentials Kashmiri Saffron and Neem Face Cleanser comes in two packaging: 50 ml and 200 ml. I bought the 50 ml one before buying the full sized product. The 200 ml packaging comes in a big rectangular plastic bottle with pump dispenser. The bottle is transparent so the amount of product left in the bottle is visible. The pump dispenser has a cap making it spill proof and travel friendly.

Forest Essentials ace in the packaging department. Half of the ‘luxurious’ feel is because of the packaging only. The FE bag they give you after billing and packaging at the store smells divine. They spritz some perfume in it and add some flower petals. The packaging of the products itself is luxurious (how many lip balms come with a mirror, for example? Read about the lip balm HERE)  

The fragrance of this facewash is amazing. It smells luxurious and exotic, giving a spa-like feeling. It smells refreshingly of saffron and rose water which lifts your mood instantly, feeling soothing and relaxing.

This is an amber colored gel facewash which does not lather up much but cleanses the face effectively. The consistency is runny and there is no problem in dispensing the product from the pump. It feels moisturizing and does not make the skin excessively dry. This is a gentle facewash without the harsh effects of chemicals. The skin feels soft, smooth and supple after washing. But I would not recommend this to people with excessively oily skin.

Even though this is an expensive product but it lasts really long. I use 2 pumps each in morning and evening and the bottle is only half empty after 3 months! I am sure it will easily last 6 months, or more.

Forest Essentials products are cruelty free and doesnot contain parabens.

 

 

 

 

 

I dropped the bottle before clicking the picture, hence the bubbles 

 

 

Overall, Forest Essentials Kashmiri Saffron and Neem face cleanser is a gentle, gel based cleanser which cleans the face effectively leaving a moisturizing feel to the skin. The skin feels soft and supple. The fragrance is lovely and the packaging feels luxurious. Even though it is pricey but it will easily last 6 months, or even more. Skip this facewash only if you want a squeaky clean finish, are acne prone and oily skinned. Otherwise, this is an amazing facewash which will work best for dry/combination skin type.
