Forest Essentials Narangi & Nagkesar Facial Ubtan Review and Price


How are you girls doing. I am doing great. Vacation time you see. I am currently enjoying my time out with my mother-in-law. Spending some time in kitchen with her and learning new recipes. It is all theory lessons now. Practicals I will do on my husband when we are back :D.

Back to the post now. Today I am reviewing this Ubtan from Forest Essentials that I had bought sometime back. Remember my dear hubby sponsored my  Forest Essentials hual and also picked up few products to try out. One of the products we had picked was this Ubtan from Forest Essentials.

Forest Essentials Narangi & Nagkesar Facial Ubtan Review

What I love about the Forest Essentials products is that they are natural and ayurvedic. When they say natural they stand by it. Once you use any product from them you will get the feel. The natural part reflects in their products and not just in the packaging ;).


Forest Essential claims that their Ubtans are made from finely ground herb, flower and root powders which are sundried and ground by hand, are used as cleansing scrubs or as face packs for deeper exfoliation. I can feel this the moment I open the bottle. It smells of dried Narangi (orange).

Forest Essentials Narangi & Nagkesar Facial Ubtan Review

What I like about this ubtan is that it cleans really well. Can be used for mild scrubbing. Leaves face fresh and doesn’t stretch out skin. Once you wash your face it does look fresh, clean imparting some glow to the skin. The glow stays for few hours only though. The brand claims that it is useful for removing tan and tacking with Acne,Blemishes,premature fine line etc however I need to use it everyday to tell if all the claims are true or not. As of now I use it 1/2 times in a week. What I have noticed so far is that it does clean well and makes my face fresh and clean. So if I am heading out for some function, this is a sure grab thing for me.

Forest Essentials Narangi & Nagkesar Facial Ubtan contents and review

How to Use: Just mix some portion of it with milk/rosewater/curd/milk/tomato juice/water . Make a paste and apply to your face and neck. Leave till it dries. Rinse. Before it dries, you can scrub your face also.

My skin type: Normal

So here’s why we (Me and Hubby) Like it:

  • 100% pure and organically grown natural herbs
  • Made with traditional method of grinding using Chakki and Okhali (This is why I am liking FE products)
  • Contains Ashwagandha, Durva, Brahmi, Marigold Leaves, Nagkesar, Brihati, Neem Sweet Orange, Anantmool, Narangi Peel, Powder, Mulethi, Vidari Kand, Bala, Khas, Camphor
  • Cleans face well and imparts a instant glow and firmness that stays for few hours
  • A good exfoliant to scrub away dead cells
  • Doesn’t stretch out the skin
  • One bottle goes a long way
  • No breakouts for me (read us 😀 )
  • Removes tan to some extent

On the Downside:

  • Many may find it pricey (but since you need just a small amount of it , it actually goes long way)
  • It smells of dry orange when dry and mehendi(henna) when wet. Many might not like this smell
  • Bottle is prone to breakage when dropped

Price: Rs. 695 for 60gm

Forest Essentials Narangi & Nagkesar Facial Ubtan review indian blog

Will I Buy It? For me it is not the absolute necessity. However it does make my job easier. I like using it for mild scrubbing 1/2 times a week. Hence I might buy it again. However I might go for Soundarya Ubtan.

Pink Love: 4.25/5

Should You Buy It?  Well, I like this product but won’t say that it is a must buy product. If you can apply natural items to your face like chickpea flour(besan) you can skip it. If you cannot then you will enjoy this product. If you have oily skin you should try out the Multani Mitti Facial Ubtan instead of this.

Buy From: Forest Essentials Store, FE website,,

Sunday Fun: About ME Time: Learn to Enjoy some time alone

Have you heard of “ME TIME”?  ME TIME is something that you enjoy alone. Just being by yourself, enjoying your own company. Just the joy of enjoying something alone. I love to have my ME TIME. To  understand yourself, to know your strengths, to know your weakness, likes and dislikes you need to take out some time for yourself girl. I meet so many people who say “What will I do alone!!”.Believe me,  explore yourself and you will be much happier in life. This post is just to inspire you to take out some time out for yourself. I am sharing how I like to spend my time alone.

If you know me you will never find me saying “I don’t want to go home because I have nothing to do” or “No one is home, what will I do“. I never sit back unnecessarily in office because I don’t know how to enjoy my own company. If you do so then hope this post will motivate you to enjoy being by yourself.

I love Me Time

This is my absolute favorite. Smells divine. It is quite hydrating and doesn’t dry at all. The best part is that it has small rose petals particles, so there is something exciting every time you open up the bottle. Bathroom smells refreshing for hours. Sadly it is not available in India.
