Skin type: combination, sensitive and acne-prone
Hello gorgeous ladies,
I have already reviewed the Forest Essentials Eladi Teenage Day Cream. Today, I am reviewing the Forest Essentials Kumkumadi Teenage Night Cream. Read on to know how it fared for me.
Price and Quantity: INR 1975 for 30g
According to the Kashyap Samhita, an ancient scripture of Ayurveda, a woman is known as Yuwati from 13 years onwards. Kumkumadikeram night cream is a highly effective night cream which contains powerful Ayurvedic preparations of Kumkumadikeram and Manikya (Ruby) Bhasma which helps to lighten pigmentation and clarify the skin. Renowned as Padmaraga or the Red lotus, Manikya Bhasma has miraculous skin rejuvenating properties. Sweet Almond Oil, Desi Ghee and Shea Butter penetrate into deep layers of the skin at night, and keep the skin healthy and nourished.
My Experience with Forest Essentials Kumkumadi Teenage Night Cream:
Forest Essentials has recently added ‘teenage’ range to their skin care line. This night cream is also one of them. This cream is meant exclusively for the teens. Though I have already crossed my teenag, I have a super sensitive and acne prone skin, which reacts to products very easily. Hence, the SA suggested using the day cream and night cream from this teenage range.
The night cream comes in a beautiful glass jar with a golden lid. The lid has the brand’s tagline embossed on it. It has a blue coloured label pasted on it to denote that this is a night cream. The label bears the entire product related information. There is a clear plastic safety cover to prevent the cream from leakage. The screw on type cap fits securely and makes the tub leak-proof.
The packaging of the product is truly luxurious, just like other Forest Essentials products. But what makes a difference in the packaging of these day and night creams is the outer cardboard box. Normally, all Forest Essentials products come inside normal brown cardboard boxes, which are not too strong. But this day cream comes in a printed and very strong cardboard box.
Since it is a night cream, the box is printed with dark coloured prints. The peacock and the flowers printed on the box look so beautiful. I am in love with the packaging of these creams. The base of the box bears the product description, ingredients list and usage instructions. Overall, the packaging is lovely but the glass jar is kind of delicate and fragile. So, it is not really travel-friendly.
The night cream is light orange in colour. The cream smells heavenly but the smell is slightly strong and may bother sensitive noses. It has a typical herbal fragrance with some floral hints. The smell is rich and pleasant for me. I love to sniff the purely natural fragrance of this night cream. The cream is enriched with natural ingredients. The ingredients list is quite long and impressive.
Kumkumadi tailam is well known for its skin nourishing and anti-ageing properties. Other ingredients include sweet almond oil, clarified butter, glycerin, aloe vera juice, orange peel extract, rose water, shea butter, ruby bhasma, saffron extract, sandalwood oil, etc. Saffron and sandalwood oil nurture the skin beautifully. The texture of the cream is thick and creamy. But, still, it spreads on the skin effortlessly.
It requires a little effort to get it absorbed into the skin. A night cream is different from a day cream in so many aspects. A day lotion has a lightweight and non-sticky texture while a night cream is expected to have a thick and creamy texture to replenish the skin properly overnight. This cream has a thick formula due to its natural ingredients like shea butter and clarified butter.
It leaves an oily film behind and feels slightly heavy on my skin. This cream immediately takes away all the dryness of my skin and brightens up the complexion. Every morning I wake up with super soft and nourished skin. It adds a dazzling glow to my skin. I have sensitive and acne-prone skin. This cream did not break me out at all and suits my skin so well.
Kumkumadi oil is great for acne-prone skin, which is the main ingredient of this night cream. This cream helped to clear up the blemishes significantly. I have combination skin and a few areas of my face get dry. This cream retains the skin moisture and keeps my skin healthy and glowing.
I has also reduced dark patches and tan from my skin to a great extent. It’s made my skin firmer and youthful. My skin stays hydrated and nourished. I am really happy with the results of this night cream. It has made my skin radiant and glowing. Overall, it is worth every penny I paid.

OMGG! I want to do a FE haul as well now. This is soo cool! Enjoy the goodies! 🙂 Good review. I love the packaging and so good it performed well for you 🙂
Thank you so much Rati Di..!! 🙂
Great review! I was eyeing to buy this but was skeptical about the teenage tag so I asked FE on their Instagram handle. They told me about the Yuvati theory wherein a girl should start taking care of her skin post 13 years of age and so the name Teenage Cream. They specifically told me these creams are for anyone above the age of 13. Also if these creams are targeted towards teenagers I wonder how many teenagers would be able to afford these?
Thanks Sohela..!! 🙂
Great review ,
I am plannning to buy this product sometime soon and was wondering if you could compare the same with Kama Ayurveda’s kumkumadi night cream .
