Rs. 1250 for 40 ml.


It comes in a transparent plastic bottle with golden cap. The mouth of the bottle is a bit bigger and it has an additional stopper inside which is difficult to remove each time. I prefer using the golden screw cap only.


It is very pleasant and smells more of sandalwood. It is not a strong sandal “agarbatti” kind of a smell, but a mild sandal smell which lingers on for a very long time.

My Experience with Forest Essentials Sunscreen Lotion with Aloe Vera and Sandalwood:

Forest Essentials Sunscreen Lotion with Aloe Vera and Sandalwood is a thick consistency white cream which gets absorbed into the skin instantly. A little product goes a long way and it requires a few seconds of spreading and massaging it into the skin.

The most amazing aspect of the sunscreen is that it smells heavenly of sandal and lingers onto the body for many hours. It not only acts as a sunscreen, but it also moisturises the skin well. My skin remains hydrated throughout the day. It makes the skin soft and silky. I love it when one cream acts as both the moisturizer and sunscreen.

I observed it does not contain any SPF, which is usually required in a sunscreen and I did inquire about it at the FE’s counter, to which they replied that it does not contain SPF, but it contains a natural herbal ingredient which protects the skin from UV rays. I can vouch for that, I have stepped out applying this into sun a few times now and I didn’t find my skin getting tan even a bit.

Other User Reviews

Forest essentials Aloe Vera & Sandalwood Sunscreen LotionI love this Forest essential sunscreen lotion for its light-weight, runny consistency which used to be thick earlier guess but now it is more like a liquid consistency. My oily skin loves this runny fluid lotion most as it is easily workable on my skin with finger tips and absorbs into skin with no greasy or oily layer behind. Although I do need powder touch ups after using it daytime but it does not accentuate my oily skin or ever caused break outs! I will also recommend it to dry skin for its intense soothing and hydrating properties, it literally fades all light pigmentation and gives us smooth, clear skin with every usage. I am not sure if it has sunscreen protection as I could not locate it in formula but I still use it in alternation with my other day lotion because I love it on my skin. Not to forget its heavenly luxurious aroma and natural ingredients. It did make huge difference on my skin. I find it perfect as a nourishing, glowing night lotion for summers while I am also interested to get it again for winters if only it was available here! It is a must try for every skin type preferably oily, combination skin type now that we see they have improved the formula & texture which is perfect for us! Lucky us :)- Neetu T Lohani
