Hello Beautiful Ladies,
Today, I am going to share a product on my mother’s behalf on her anniversary. I gifted her Forest Essentials Sanjeevani Beauty Elixir. This product was the only gift that clicked in my mind as our mothers’ care for us but they do not have the time to care for themselves. She has used this product for more than two months now and I saw the result on her face, so I thought of sharing it with you guys.
An age-old formula which has taken our research physicians the last few years to refine and texturize into a silken elixir to drench your skin with moisture and leave the lightest veil of hydrating protection from UV and environmental pollution. The formulation is an enriched version of natural sebum, which instantly penetrates and plumps the skin. Sebum is natural oil, secreted by the sebaceous glands in skin that lubricate and protect the skin. This beauty Elixir has liposome’s, which are instantly absorbed into the skin. Made of lipids, the same substance that composes the cell wall, liposome’s are penetrating agents that have the ability to carry other materials through the cellular walls and deposit them in the cell itself. This regenerates and brings the skin ‘to life’ OR facilitates the ‘Tejas’ or quality that gives it a radiant glow.
On the Sanjeevani Herb:
The Mrita Sanjeevani grows in the Himalayas at 4,500-5,000 ft. The local people and ascetics having knowledge of the plant did not reveal this to the outsiders for fear of exploitation and extinction. The divine plant was used for worship and is offered to the Gods in the Valley of Drongiri, in the Uttarakhand area. The name translates into the plant having the unique property of rejuvenation, “one that infuses life.”
This is mentioned in the first part of the Ramayana along with the mythological allusion of Lord Hanuman carrying the whole mountainside with Sanjeevani growing, to save Lord Lakshman’s life.
My Experience with Forest Essentials Sanjeevani Beauty Elixir:
This lotion comes in an opaque, square plastic bottle with the sticker of Lord Hanuman carrying Sanjeevani on top of it with a pump dispenser. The packaging is quite attractive. My mother told me that she has never seen any product carrying God’s picture. I told her that’s the quality of Indians that makes them different from others. If the product is pure and natural, why not put God’s picture as he is the sign of naturalness, and she was convinced with my thoughts. Then, her journey of judging this product began and after two months, she told me to gift this again on her birthday, and I feel very happy.
Okay, coming to the product. According to my mom, she is in her 40’s and has combination type skin, just two pumps are enough for face and neck. She applies it after cleansing and toning. She told me if someone is using natural products, one should go all natural with natural cleanser and toner. This is a day cream. She applies it after her cleansing and toning routine, massaging it gently in an upward and outward direction.
This lotion is semi-thick in texture and smells like “jadi-butti,” some ayurvedic medicine. She personally doesn’t like it, but the smell lingers for a shorter period. The product lasts for around two months after regular usage. The product gives proper hydration and protects from UV rays as mentioned on their site, not sure about its sunscreen claim.
Yes, it does what it claims. I saw a radiant glow on her face, no breakouts, has anti-ageing properties, deals perfectly with wrinkles and dullness, increases elasticity. Overall, she is very happy with the product and her face is glowing day by day. According to her, this is the best anti-ageing lotion so far and definitely better than any other chemical-based cream.
