If you haven’t known, Forest Essentials is one proud quintessential Luxurious Ayurvedic Indian skincare/beauty brand that combines ancient beauty rituals of Ayurveda with a stylish, modern aesthetic for a more relevant emphasis on efficacy, sensorial experience and pleasure of usage. Made with all natural substances such as plants and their extracts, their products are balanced by nature and contain a vibratory energy that constitutes life. They contain all the purifying, nutritive and balancing properties necessary to nurture the skin and for eternal beauty, which in-turn are the perfect foods for the skin. Recently, I have been gifted some of the bestsellers of Forest Essentials by the Nykaa team and I should say I have been loving using them.
Received the cleanser-toner-mask trio, in the mini versions though.
You can get the full sized ones of the same trio if you already are a fan of these products.
Delicate Facial Cleanser with Kashmiri Saffron & Neem
This is an ideal gentle and natural alternative to harsh Sulphate infused cleansers, and is especially designed to treat sensitive, acne prone and oily skin. This leaves skin glowing and balanced after each use, without drying out or irritating the skin. Gently cleanses your face to remove surface toxins, impurities and leave glowing skin after each use. Saffron has always been used in traditional formulations for glowing skin, along with Neem for purifying and deep cleansing. These enriching properties makes this cleanser an ideal choice for getting touchably soft and nourished skin.
- Cleanses without stripping skin moisture
- Purifies and adds a natural glow to the complexion
- Free from Sulphates, Parabens and Petrochemicals
I got the mini cleanser which retails for INR 325/- for a 50ml product, and price varies with different sizes.
This is a great cleanser which smells divine and also gets the dirt and gunk out the face very easily. I love the way how hydrating it is, and it did not strip away my skin natural oils. It did not dry out my skin. The simple ingredients straight out make a clear view to the consumers; Saffron to amp up the skin complexion and Neem being antibacterial. It is very mild and very gentle on the skin, making it a perfect pick for all skin types, especially sensitive and acne-prone skin types.
Facial Tonic Mist – Pure Rosewater
After steam distilling, precious Rose oil’s hydrating fragrant residue becomes the finest Rosewater. This Facial Tonic Mist is a high quality Rose water that has properties of cooling, soothing & moisturizing the skin.
- Revives the skin
- Minimized enlarged pores
One of the bestsellers of Forest Essentials, this tonic mist is priced at INR 360/- for a 100ml product. This again comes in different sizes.
This is a perfect light toner for oily skin people, or a great refreshing mist. Just a pure burst of Roses all over your face – smells absolutely divine. Steam Distilled Desi Gulab Essence or Pure Rosewater is a natural astringent which tones the skin, diminishes fine lines and hydrates the skin. I love how refreshed my skin feels right after spraying this, and is totally non-tacky or non-sticky. Totally recommend this to all oily, combination skin girls.
Tejasvi Brightening & Lightening Sheetmask for Glowing skin
Infused in a deep conditioning Ayurvedic Kashyam or herbal decoction to give the complexion a radiant glow, in just one use. An innovative addition to the iconic Tejasvi Emulsion, the silken textured Tejasvi Sheet Mask adheres to skin, to instantly deliver radiance boosting actives that counteract dullness and leave skin exceptionally luminous.
- Gives ethereal glow from within
- Smoothens skin
- Provides radiance
- Brightens and lightens the skin
Comes in one size and retails for INR 395/- for a 30g product.
Filled with a ton of herbal concoction(or the serum), this sheet mask fits my face snugly and feels soothing all while I wait for it to work in to my skin. Although a bit disappointed with the claims of it lightening the skin, I think its high time for even brands to know that there’s nothing in the world that can lighten your natural skin color. Just embrace your natural beauty! Nevertheless, this sheetmask definitely brightens up the skin and gives a beautiful luminous glow.
You surely have to moisturize and end your routine with a sun protection though, but this kit includes only the cleanse-tone-masking steps of your routine. Still it’s a great start for beginners and perfect for combination skin type people.
