I have been using a couple of things from my last Envy Box, and it is the time to talk about Forest Essentials Indian Rose Absolute Body Lotion. This is one of their ultra rich body lotions.
Price: INR 1175 for 200 ml
Shelf Life: Almost 2 years
Product Description ( As per the website):
“A richly evocative oil, Indian Rose Absolute is one of the world’s most precious essential oils. Timelessly romantic. This body lotion uses burnt Cane Sugar, a humectant which attracts and seals moisture into the skin.”
“This Moisture Drenching Indian Rose Absolute Hand & Body Lotion is enriched with caramelized sugar crystals that retain moisture on the skin and leave it soft and nourished. Kokum butter along with burnt sugar and organic beeswax provide natural hydration and make the skin smooth and supple. Antioxidant properties of Vitamin E and Gokharu reduce the ill effects of free radicals and give lustre to the skin with voluptuous fragrance of Indian Rose Absolute.”
Since I have a 50 ml sample size, I checked the website for packaging details. It comes in the typical rectangular plastic body, with a dispensing pump. That is good thing I guess, because the sample bottle that I have does not have a pump, and it gets difficult to get the thick lotion out of the bottle.
The lotion is white in color and has a thick consistency. It has a rose scent, which is seems a bit altered due to other ingredients in the body lotion. But the smell is pleasant, unless you don’t like the sweet smells in general. In that case, the smell can be a little overpowering due to its sweetness.
The lotion is quite thick in consistency, and you have to work a little to get it completely absorbed in the skin. But once it gets absorbed, there is no greasiness or residue on the skin. The skin feels hydrated and soft after application. The smell lingers on the skin for couple of hours after using, may be for around 2-3 hours.
The good thing about this Indian Rose Absolute Body Lotion is that it instantly hydrates the skin. There is no heaviness or greasy feeling on the skin, and it gives a slight glow to the skin. The skin looks healthy and nourished after using this lotion. The lotion has a luxurious feel to it.
The hydration is not very long lasting though for very dry skin. My skin stays moisturized for around 8-10 hours and it starts feeling a bit dry after that. So if you have dry skin and looking for long hydration, this has to be re-applied. For normal skin, the duration of hydration will definitely be long. Even for dry skin, it will work better in summer than in winter.
Have any of you already tried Forest Essentials Indian Rose Absolute Body Lotion??? What are your views on it???
