After using 4 bottles of Forest Essentials Light Day Lotion Rose and Marigold, I thought I’d try something different from the brand. Plus the moisturizer wasn’t proving to be very hydrating for my dry skin during this dry wintery season. So I went to the store and asked the SA to give me something moisturizing and hydrating for my dry skin. She told me both about the day lotion and this gel. She said gel would be super hydrating for my skin so I picked this up.
I am sooo disappointed.
This is a light weight gel, which smells heavenly of fresh rose water. It feels cooling on skin and gets absorbed within seconds. But honestly, it does nothing to my dry skin except making it feel stretchy and taut. When I apply it, it feels amazing – almost like applying cooling water. But as soon as the wet feel of the gel disappears, my skin starts feeling stretched and uncomfortable. And it definitely does not moisturize my skin. I end up having dry patches on my chin and cheeks after an hour or so. I went back to another store and now the SA has asked me to use it as a base of my moisturizer. 😐 It may work fine as a makeup base but I like to have a comfortable emollient feel to my skin as opposed to a stretched out feel.
It is just sitting pretty on my vanity table and doing nothing.
I am guessing that this would work just fine for those with oily skin. But those with normal to dry skin, I suggest that you totally skip this product.
Giving it only 1/5 for the fabulous packaging and the gorgeous smell. I guess they should train their SAs better.
