Forest Essentials Lightening and Brightening Tejasvi Emulsion: Review

I cannot tell you how much I love this product from Forest Essentials. If I have to suggest you one good product for your skin care( among all the one’s I have tried so far), I would definitely recommend it. I love how this gets absorbed by my skin, soothes my skin, hydrates it and provides glow. I am( rather we are) on my/our third bottle. This is used by me and my husband and we both LOVE it. Apart from making my skin soft and glowy it also helps in skin lighting. No wonder it is ELLE Beauty Award Winning Product.

Garnier White Complete Speed Range Review and 7 Day Challenge Plus Free Samples

Hia Girls,

I am back in action after missing in action from past few weeks. Past few weeks were just crazy for me. Things in office and some research work at home was keeping me fully occupied. If you are following me on Instagram or Facebook, Twitter you already know I was  show stopper in a recent fashion show we showcased in front of our CEO. Theme was to showcase diversity within India. Big day for me :). I represented Yakshagana which is an art/dance form of Karnataka. The costume and makeup was so heavy that it took an hour for me to be ready 🙂

So this post was supposed to come weeks back but I just couldn’t find time to sit down and write it. Some days back Garnier team contacted me and asked me try out their white complete range (Face Cream and Face Wash) for a week and then share my experience with my readers. So here you go ladies.

Forest Essentials Narangi & Nagkesar Facial Ubtan Review and Price

Hola,

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, Jabong.com, Flipkart.com

Lovely Rose Based Products You Should Try Out

Every girl love roses. A bouquet of roses always fascinates me and almost every girl I know. So I bring you some rose based products that I have used in past and really enjoyed using. So here is the list for you all. Enjoy !!

Lush Rose Jam Shower Gel:

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. Make sure you ask your friends travelling to India from US/UK to get this for you.

Avene Very High Protection Emulsion Spf 50 Sunscreen Review

How are you guys doing? I have been away for a month as I was busy sorting out few things in life. Now they are done, but I am just feeling lazy to be back to blogging in a full fledged manner. On top of that there are these lazy summer days. Gosh I really feel just lazyyyy.

But one thing I don’t feel lazy about is using a good sunscreen in Summers. The sun damages our skin now more than ever. So every time you step out in sun a good sunscreen is a must. I have been using the one from Avene this summer and really, really liking it. I have been using it for more than 3 weeks now.
