Forest Essentials Delicate Facial Cleanser : Review

 Hi there,

                Hope you all are in good health. In today's blog post I'm gonna review 'Forest Essentials Delicate Facial Cleanser Kashmiri saffron & Neem'.

Recently I've got my hands on this brand. It's an Indian Luxury skincare and haircare brand. They've been following the Indian Ayurveda tradition for many years now. The brand claims that all their products are made of natural ingredients. Also their products are non-toxic and cruelty free. They don't use Parabens, sulphates and synthetic fragrances in their products.

Now, let's know about this facial cleanser in detail.

Packaging : This delicate facial cleanser comes in a plastic bottle kind of packaging with a golden screw cap on the top of it which makes the packaging look very elegant. There are some important informations clearly mentioned on the packaging.

My experience with this product :Forest Essentials is my first ever luxury skincare brand I've used and this Kashmiri saffron & Neem delicate cleanser is the first product that I wanted to try from their skincare range. I've very oily, acne prone skin. So, I generally prefer mild face washes for my skin. I've been testing out this product for couple of weeks. It has a gel based liquid consistency which feels very gentle on the skin. It lathers up not much but it removes dirt,oil and impurities from the skin nicely.

It  doesn't control oil. It has a very fresh, soothing aroma which instantly lifts up your mood but if you're sensitive to fragrances then you may not like that.

It contains some skin beneficial ingredients like Marigold flower extract, jasmine flower oil, rose extract, kumud flower extract, saffron flower extract, Neem leaf extract and honey. After using this face cleanser my skin feels very soft and nourished. Also I feel ,it has added some glow to my face after using it continuously for more than 3 weeks.

Though it contains neem leaf extract, it is not that much effective on reducing the occurrence of acne.

I love the fact that this facial cleanser is free from Parabens, Phthalates, SLS, Sulphates and mineral oil.

Overall, I think that this product is more suitable for dry to combination skin types than oily skin type. It is very mild and moisturising. I would prefer to use this cleanser during winter season because that time my skin tends to get very dry and flaky.

Pros : 

  • Very gentle on skin.
  • Suitable for dry to combination skin types.
  • Free from Parabens, Phthalates, Sulfate,SLS and mineral oils.
  • Has a very soothing fragrance.
  • Removes dirt and oil from the skin very nicely.
  • Made of natural ingredients.
  • After using skin feels glowing and moisturised.
  • Packaging looks very classy and also travel friendly.
  • Cruelty free.
  • Made in India.

Cons : 

  • Pricey.
  • Not effective on controlling oil.
  • Doesn't control acne issue.
