Top 5 Forest Essential Favorites

1.Body Mist

I have the Iced Pomegranate and Kerala Lime variant. You get that lime kick and undertones of pomegranate!

Forest Essentials body mist
Love the fresh fragrance….

I’ll agree for a body mist, it is steeply priced. But then sometime you like to splurge. Comes in a convenient and travel friendly plastic bottle. The fragrance is strong but will not last you the entire day, especially in summers.

Price – 1675/- for 100ml

2. Velvet Silk body Cream

With winters approaching, you need a body cream that’s richly moisturizing. If you’re on the lookout to try a new body cream, I highly recommend the velvet silk body cream range from the Forest Essentials. Mine is from the Madurai Jasmine & Mogra range.

Thanking mumma for her plants – making all pictures look super pretty.

It’s thick and creamy, perfect for colder months; doesn’t leave your skin greasy, and the fragrance lingers on for a long time. And the best thing, it’s a huge tub and will last you a long time making it complete value for money.

Price – 1695/- for 200gm

3. Cane Sugar Lip Scrub

Okay, I have to admit, this was an impulse buy and it is kinda overrated. But then, sometimes you have to give in to temptations at the store. The lip scrub is quite good. The sugar particles aren’t course, just right for mild exfoliating. The fragrance is great and the biggest plus – it is made of all natural ingredients.

This tastes so yummm!

Price – Rs. 525/- for 5g

4. Facial Ubtan

I have thoroughly enjoyed using the Roop Nikhar Gulab ubtan from their range. I was told at the store that this particular variant is perfect for normal skin type. I’ve almost finished two tubs and it is a great skincare investment.

You can use it as a cleanser, scrub, or as a ubtan face pack. Makes skin super soft and gives a natural radiant glow. Will also make a great gifting option this festive season.

5. Sanjeevani Beauty Elixir

It’s a fancy name to a facial moisturizer. The formulation is an enriched version of natural sebum. Gets absorbed in the skin instantly to give plump and supple skin.

Love the consistency, bouncy and light. You can use it on its own as a moisturizer, or as a primer. The price is high, but needless to say its premium quality. This is one luxe skincare product that you’ll not regret.

If you like to invest in skincare, do give this one a try.

Price – 3495/- for 30g

Top 5 Face Packs for glowing skin in India

Share Button

Welcome November.

There is this slight nip in the air and not to forget the festivities all around. It is time to pamper your skin and look your best. Nothing beats the happy feeling of flaunting a beautiful skin.

Homemade face packs are great, but on days when you’re too lazy to do a DIY mask, the readymade ones are a great option.

Top 5 face packs in India
Flaunt naturally radiant skin with these face packs.

Here are top 5 face packs for glowing skin in India.

1. Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Pack

Goodness of neem needs no emphasis, so does this value for money product. It is gentle, yet deep cleanses and unclogs your pores. It is a purifying mud pack so if you have dry or very dry skin, stay away from this one. You could also use this for multi-masking in just your T-zone.

If you have acne prone skin, give this one a shot. You can use it in combination with Himalaya Neem Face Wash and Scrub for better results.

Price – 130/- for 100g

Use the trio for a clear and healthy looking skin.

2. The Body Shop Tea Tree 3-in-1 Wash Scrub Mask

If you’re someone who has blemishes and acne prone skin, then this face mask can be that miracle product you’ve been looking for. Tea tree oil is known to be antibacterial and works great for blemish prone skin. It has a strong tea tree oil fragrance and a creamy texture. The micro-beads are tiny but they exfoliate well.

Can be used as a mask, scrub, or simply as face wash. It gently exfoliates leaving your skin squeaky clean. Use it for a natural glow when your skin looks dull or is feeling clogged.

Price – 1295/- for 125ml 

The Body Shop Tea Tree mask and scrub
I love to use it as a mask. Easy and fuss-free…

3. Forest Essentials Ubtan  – Roop Nikhar Gulab

My list of 5 best face packs in India would not be complete without a mention of Forest Essentials. Forest Essentials has different variants of ubtans. This particular variant is suitable for normal skin type.

Skincare posts are incomplete without Forest Essentials.

It comes in powder form. You can add aloe vera gel, rosewater, or milk and apply for a super soft and naturally radiant skin. It is mild, 100% natural, and free from synthetic colors or fragrance.

You might think that the price is too steep for an ubtan, but trust me it is worth every penny. Your skin will feel great, and it is also great to invest in good skincare.

Price – 1025/- for 70g

You can use it as a scrub or as a mask. (This is the old packaging)

4. Patanjali Multani Mitti Face Pack 

The age old multani mitti has been popular among the royals and commoners alike. In its new avatar – Patanjali Multani Mitti Face Pack, it’s a fuss free, easy to use pack. Though effective for normal to oily skin, it can leave your skin feeling stretchy and dry, so make sure to use a moisturizer right after. Also if you are someone with sensitive skin, this can be harsh for your skin.

Price –60/- for 60g

This one is a great affordable option.

5. Nature’s Essence Lacto Tan Clear

Getting rid of that pesky tan can be such a pain. This sun tan remover from Nature’s Essence has been quite effective for me. It is enriched with the goodness of milk and honey, bit highly moisturizing and nourishing for the skin. With its light creamy texture, it isn’t harsh on the skin at all.

It is gentle and suitable for all skin types. You can use it twice a week and the best part is it works wonders to remove tan not just from your face, but also legs, arms, neck, and back. Out of the 5 best packs for glowing skin, this is my personal favorite.

Price – 85/- for 40g
