Forest Essentials Mysore Sandalwood and Vetiver Ultra Rich Body Lotion

Since summers are equally dry as winters where I live, body lotion is an indispensable body care product.  Though body butters can be done away with during summers, a good moisturizing body lotion is a must.  On the shelves of the Forest Essentials store, I found an array of great-smelling body lotions and out of those, I bought this one – Forest Essentials Mysore Sandalwood and Vetiver Ultra Rich Body Lotion.  Read on for detailed review :))

Forest Essentials Mysore Sandalwood and Vetiver Ultra Rich Body Lotion

Product Description:

The deep smoky undertone of vetiver with lush Mysore Sandalwood has a heady sensual fragrance.  This body lotion uses burnt cane sugar, a humectant which attracts and seals moisture into the skin.

My Take on Forest Essentials Mysore Sandalwood and Vetiver Ultra Rich Body Lotion:

First, a look through the ingredients list – it surely justifies the price.  This body lotion has burnt cane sugar, olive oil derivatives, kokum butter, almond oil, apricot oil, beeswax, and vitamin E among other ingredients.  Surely, this is an ultra-rich body lotion. The packaging is the same as you get for Forest Essentials shampoos, shower gels, conditioners, etc.

This milky white lotion has the right consistency, not too runny or thick, spreads and gets absorbed into the skin well.  The fragrance is a heady mix of sandalwood, vetiver, and some cold pressed oils.  I think that this particular fragrance would not be liked by everyone – it’s a strong fragrance and if you do not like woodsy fragrances, this might be too much for you.  The scent stays for one to two hours and then disappears.

Since I have dry skin on the body, I do need heavy moisturization and this lotion completely clears away dry patches and hydrates skin amazingly.  It does not feel greasy or oily on top of the skin.  It keeps the skin soft and smooth throughout.  There’s no need to reapply it during the course of the day, it keeps my skin hydrated for long hours.  Even in winters, I think this moisturization would be enough.  Though the texture is not as thick as a body butter, but I see that it provides the same amount of moisture to the skin.

There’s no SPF in this lotion, so you would have to definitely top it up with a good sunscreen before going out.  Also, I just need a little bit to cover the hands and legs and since no re-application is needed, this 200 ml is going to last for a long time.  Since it is so rich with all the cold pressed oils, kokum butter and stuff, I guess it would be great for all skin types including the driest of skin types in all weathers.  Although, I would suggest those with back acne and body acne to avoid this since the oils might aggravate such a condition.

Another USP about this lotion – it’s paraben free – so those of you who are hunting for a paraben-free body lotion, pick this up!

Summing  up, I would say that this is a great body lotion, with the goodness of so many natural ingredients, and with a nice and heady fragrance. You can try the other variants at the store – they have one in Bengal Tuberose that I am so going to pick up – it’s totally my kind of fragrance!
