Hello People! 😀
How are you all? Recently, I reviewed the L’Occitane Rose 4 Reines Solid Perfume and loved the smell. Then, I jumped onto the “Rose Fragrance Bandwagon!” I decided to stock up on my lovely roses, and bought a body lotion. Today, I’ll be reviewing a Forest Essentials product and now I blab. 😀
“These ultra-rich lotions incorporate real caramelized sugar crystals that have been used in several traditional Indian recipes for luxurious skin treatments. Being a natural humectant, sugar attracts moisture to the skin, making it soft, supple and dew-like. Firming • Satin Finish. Unfolds the creamy petals of the intoxicating full-bodied rose. Timelessly romantic. This body lotion uses burnt Cane Sugar, a humectant which attracts and seals moisture into the skin.”
My Experience with Forest Essentials Indian Rose Absolute Ultra Rich Body Lotion:
After searching about high and low for a good product, I stumbled across the Forest Essentials website. I didn’t have much moolah to burn 😛 so I went for a simple lotion. My nearest FE store is in Delhi, so I ordered this online. Although the delivery took 11 days, I still love their service! The product was packed really well to prevent any damage.
The bottle is a clear plastic bottle with a gold screw cap, very beautiful. The cap also screws on tightly, so it’s safe for travel. The lotion has a thick consistency and comes out easily from the bottle. The minute you open it, you’re hit by the smell of roses. It smells like real proper mature roses, not the fake perfume-y kind.
The lotion spreads easily and gets absorbed quickly. It doesn’t leave a whitish cast. The moisturization is pretty intense too. No dry spots anywhere! Although it got a little too much for the humid summers I think, definitely didn’t make me greasy or oily though. It all got absorbed pretty well, so I’m happy.
The fragrance has a lasting power of about 3 hours. After that you may be able to smell some if you sniff yourself. 😛 Oh, and around this time, you’ll start smelling like “Rooh-Afzah,” not in a bad way of course. 😀 Nothing better than a glass of cold “Rooh-Afzah” on a hot summer day (Mumma ki yaad aa gayi). Mummy would always send a thermos full of ice-cold “Rooh Afzah” for me after school. Perfect doctor and perfect mumma. 😀
Coming back to the product, 😛 my only problem was (with the website, not the product) that on the website, this product is called “Moisture Drenching Hand and Body Lotion Indian Rose Absolute,” but the bottle (even the pictures on the website) call it Ultra Rich Body Lotion. :/
But definitely recommended. Try this out if you like the smell of fresh roses and layer this with a rose perfume and it spells magic! With my L’Occitane solid perfume, the smell layers really well and the lasting power increases dramatically.

Cons of Forest Essentials Indian Rose Absolute Ultra Rich Body Lotion:
