All year around I experience dry skin issues. It doesn’t really matter what season we are in, my skin always feels thirsty, dehydrated and moisture less. While I am always trying to do my best for it by using the finest available stuff but the benefits don’t really last. On my hunt for a perfect body lotion I stumbled upon the Forest Essentials outlet one day.
In the past I have tried many chemical formulated creams and lotions but at the back of mind I wanted something more natural and primitive. My quest ended when I found this ultimate luxury product by Forest Essentials.
Product name: Forest Essentials Ultra Rich body lotion Mashobra Honey & Vanilla
Price: Rs 1075
About the Product:
This Body Lotion contains real caramelized sugar crystals that have been used in several traditional Asian recipes for luxurious skin treatments. Being a natural humectant sugar attracts moisture to the skin, making it soft, supple and dew-like. Almond oil from sweet almonds is nutritious, adds glow, deeply moisturizes. Apricot oil nourishes, revitalizes, softens and improves skin elasticity. Kokum Butter is composed of beneficial compounds that help to regenerate and nourish skin cells. Organic Beeswax deeply nourishes, rejuvenates and firms the skin. Gokharu revitalizes dull dry skin, it also firms and tones. Natural Almond Nut Butter is deeply nourishing and restores suppleness. Olive Oil is a source of anti-oxidants and neutralizes free radicals that damage the skin and accelerate the aging process; it is moisturizing and skin-rejuvenating. Honey's natural antioxidant properties help to protect the skin from the damage of the sun's rays, replenish skin moisture, leaving it feeling soft and supple while Vanilla neutralizes free radicals and oxidants, and it is known as a stress reliever.
Making of the Product:Organic Almonds and Apricots are cold pressed by hand (using old fashioned oil crushers and without heating) to retain their active ingredients, which are then used to craft the product. Burnt Sugar from Sugar Cane is blended with herbs and butter to make an emulsion with the oils.
Product Benefits:Forest Essentials Body Lotion Mashobra Honey and Vanilla is enriched with cold pressed organic oils which make the skin soft, nourished and supple. Kokum butter along with burnt sugar and organic beeswax provide natural hydration and makes the skin smooth. Antioxidant properties of Vitamin E and Gokharu reduce the ill effects of free radicals and give luster to the skin with the warm sweet fragrance of Mashobra Honey and Vanilla.
My take on the product:
Wow! The FE website has provided such an exquisite and deep description available for its customers. Honestly, I was amazed when I visited their website before writing this review every single detail about their brand has been disclosed on what is Ayurveda, how it originated, how the skin is categorized, the philosophy of 5 basic elements and how they represent the 5 human senses and their respective organs in a human being, what products they recommend for a certain skin type, their best sellers, personalized consultations, about shipping, and also a made to order beauty cream to suit your skin requirements. Now, that’s what I call Brilliance!
I just can’t praise them enough for the passion and interest they show for their out of the ordinary products. Every product they sell comes with a detailed description of the ingredients and how those ingredients are used in order to benefit your skin. I have tried and tested a few products from FE and believe me you will fall in love with them. One such product is the Ultra Rich body lotion. I have had dry skin issues in the past and why I am saying in the past is because they have been taken care of now with this body lotion. It is sheer excellence in this bottle. I always carry a miniature size of this lotion in my bag as it not only helps to moisturize my hands but the smell uplifts my spirit.
The packaging is very practical that’s made of a plastic body and gorgeous gold screw cap. The texture is not thick neither runny it is lotion like. It takes a moment to massage the dispensed product on to your applied area and then the complete product is absorbed by your skin leaving it nourished.
What I personally like about this lotion is that it is very moisturizing but not greasy and oily at all. It instantly hydrates and replenishes my skin without leaving any slick or coat. It gets absorbed in the skin like a dream and you are left with soft supple fresh smelling skin. I am all praises for this bottle as it deserves acclamation.
