Forest Essentials Lavender & Neroli Light Day Lotion Review


Hey everyone,

     Today’s review is on the Lavender & Neroli Light Day Lotion by Forest Essentials.


Price: ₹ 1595 for 40g

Ingredients: You can check the ingredient list below.


Product benefits: Forest Essentials Light Day Lotion is a silky light weight lotion that steeps into the skin easily leaving it soft and smooth with a non-greasy feel. It contains Ayurvedic herbs like Ashwagandha and Gokharu along with Almond, Wheat germ and Olive oils which not only provide nourishment but also prevent the skin from the damaging effect of free radicals. Regular use of this light day lotion helps your skin to retain its natural texture by repairing the damaged cells and giving an even toned skin with the light fragrance of Lavender and Neroli.

You can buy it from their stores or online from ForestEssentials

     I liked the night cream from Forest Essentials and thought to give this day lotion a try as it is meant for oily skin.  The product comes in a golden luxurious pump packaging, but is completely opaque.  This makes it harder to see how much product is left.  The lotion smells strongly of Neroli and might bother sensitive noses, but I liked it.  The smell stays for sometime on the face and then fades away.  The lotion is not very runny, it is of medium consistency,  non-sticky, spreads easily and get absorbed well into the skin.  But, one problem is that if I apply during hot or humid condition, it makes my face sweat which I did not like.  But during cold condition, this does not happen.  The lotion will provide enough moisturization for my skin type and hence will be suitable for oily & combination-oily skin people.  They have other variants for dry skin types also.  This contains SPF25 which is an added advantage.  The lotion does not make the skin oily and infact it made my face oil-free for 4-5 h depending on the weather condition.  One bottle will lasts for 2-2.5 months is used daily. It is costly like most of the Forest Essentials products, it is a good moisturizing lotion with SPF25 and I am not sure about its long term benefits as I have used just one bottle of it.  But I did not find any improvement or difference in my skin tone.

      Yes, it is so expensive but does nothing special and there are many choices of moisturizers with a lesser price tag.
