At night, our skin’s renewal process is most intensive and treatment creams are recommended to aid skin’s renewal and repairing process. Having dry skin, I have been using a night cream or some kind of moisturiser for as long as I can remember. This time I decided to try out Forest Essentials Night Treatment Cream – Sandalwood and Saffron for it’s skin firming properties. This cream also won Best Night Cream Award 2011 by Vogue India.
The brand says:
A unique night treatment formula which blends the pure oils of sandalwood and saffron to nurture normal to dry skin types. This advanced age-defying formula has a corrective and preventive action, instantly diminishing fine lines and restoring firmness and radiance. It has an exceptionally high oil content to provide extra nourishment. Vitamin C, a strong antioxidant, tones the skin excellently while carrot oil provides vitamin A which boosts cell renewal.
Price: Rs. 1,275 for 50 gms packing
The cream is a heavy moisturizer with a butter smooooooooth texture that gets absorbed into skin immediately. Depending on how dry your skin feels, you can use more or less quantity of the product. My sister and I have been using this cream every night for more than a month now and this would still last us another 3 weeks.
With all the oils, Vitamin A & C in this and other ‘natural’ ingredients, the list is very impressive. I don’t eat all my fruits and veggies, so I’m happy my cream provides me the Vitamins 😉 Also, this cream has a beautiful fragrance that lingers. I apply it half an hour before going to bed and I find the sandalwood fragrance really relaxing.
In the morning, skin looks hydrated and soft and 2 weeks into using this, both of us noticed our skin to be smoother and more radiant. It looks and feels like you just had a facial, without actually getting one!! I’m not sure about it’s age-defying claims yet, but I feel one needs to use it longer to see any such results.
I am loving this cream and other Forest Essentials products. Do try it out!!
Love, Jas 🙂
