Forest Essentials Delicate Facial Cleanser Kashmiri Saffron & Neem Review

Hello People!!!!!!!

Well I maybe a newbie to makeup but one thing that I have been experimenting since I understood the name has been face washes. I almost never repeat face washes unless and until it really impresses me. I  started with pond’s and pears face wash ( I used to buy them with my pocket money since the concept of face washes was new and my Mumma thought it as another one of my crazy expenses.)

Long story short today I am reviewing one of my most favourite face wash. Forest Essentials Delicate Facial Cleanser Kashmiri Saffron & Neem.

Forest Essentials Delicate Facial Cleanser Kashmiri Saffron & Neem

Forest Essentials introduction:Forest Essentials was founded in the year 2000 after many years of meticulous research. After many years of development with trained Ayurvedic physicians, a range of natural skin care and hair care products was evolved. The view that Ayurveda advocates, is that a holistic approach is necessary for beauty care.

What it claims:

Quick Overview:

The first rule of Ayurvedic skin care is cleanse, tone and nourish. The secret to proper cleansing is to remove dead cells and toxins, clear clogged pores and clean make-up without stripping the skin’s natural oils and moisture content.

• Tones • Purifies • Adds Glow

Saffron has always been used in traditional formulations for glowing skin , along with Neem for purifying and deep cleansing.

  • Suitable for all skin types.

Anatmool:Beneficial in treating skin disorders. The smell of this face wash is just amazingg!!!! It lifts up my mood immediately.It has a rose water kind of smell which is very refreshing.It is a very mild facewash and does not lather much. I use it after applyin saundarya ubtan sumtimes or even as it is. It gives an instant glow to my face which is evident after the 1st wash itself. I love the fact that i am applying a chamical free face wash. I feel as if I am giving my face a treat..hehehe…The face wash is like a liquidy gel in light yellow colour.

Pros of Forest Essentials Delicate Facial Cleanser

  • The ingredient list. I picked it solely based on that. All the good things for skin rolled into one product kinds and the fact that it is chemical free!!!!
  • The amazing refreshing smell.
  • Gives an instant glow to my face.
  • I have noticed a teeny reduction of my gigantic pores after I have started using it but I am also using Fabindia rose water so i guess it is a joined effort of both the products.
  • It is suitable for all skin types..even sensitive skin.
  • A very small quantity is required for one wash hence it will last me a loong time.( hehehe…I feel like a detergent salesperson here)
  • Does not dry my skin. Although I have combination skin I do not like face washes that strip my face of all the moisture.

Cons of Forest Essentials Delicate Facial Cleanser

I cannot think of anything except the price.But I am willing to spend this much on a fab product like this.
And since it is too mild i mean if you have travelled and have all that grime and dust on your face..i feel using this face wash only wont give you a squeaky clean feel because it lathers very less. I therefore don’t use it after I come home in the evening after office.

Rating: :-* :-* :-* :-* I have taken half a point for price and half for the apprehension i have about it removing all the dust and grime.

Will I repurchase it: Yes absolutely!!! I love this face wash but i will also want to try the other products in the range of Forrest Essentials.

I will recommend it to you if you are willing to spend this much on a chemical free, amazing smelling and feel good product!

  4. @Thanx Farha for telling me more about it a couple of weeks back 🙂 🙂

    I started using it from then and I’m loving it ..makes my skin glow and it smells sooo good 🙂

    but i dont find any difference in my pore size..:(.must be the rose water then..

    I would buy this again and also try ubtans 🙂

    1. I m glad u liked it Shanaiia :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: …actually i hav started takin care of my skin…i nvr used to follow CTM also :struggle: :struggle: :struggle: :struggle: :struggle: ….yeah that may be the case but the pore reduction has definitely been after using this…so maybe a combined effort of this facewash and rose water… :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

      1. Thats right must be combined effort…I’ll try doing that 2…thanx for the tip 🙂

        And like you, even I love experimenting with face washes…sumtimes I end up having 5-6 different ones on my bathroom shelf 😉

  5. This looks so awesome! I can imagine a heavenly scent just looking at the ingredients. And its chemical free!!
    I have combination skin like you Farha and I like my face washes to give me squeaky clean feeling without drying out my skin. Lotus tea tree face wash does this job really well. I’ve never purchased any FE stuff, waiting for your UBTAN review :waiting:

    1. Ankita…i love it most coz its chemical free :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: …and really smells heavenly…I have to mail the ubtan review yet…very busy day in office but i will do it b4 monday for sure… :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

    1. Haina..the qty is tooo goood considering such a small amount is required for 1 time :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: …actually Veda as i mentioned earlier i m regularly following the ctm routine now…with this face wash and Fabindia rose water…so i guess that is making the difference..i nvr used to take care of my skin religiously b4 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 … Glad u liked the review :yahoo:

      1. i think its the FabIndia rose water…i tho stopped toning separatly as it mentioned “tones” on the bottle. & the smell :worship: , its so divine ur in a spa or something… :yahoo:
