Hey guys, welcome to the second day of “7 days of skincare”. For Day 1, checkout my review here. Today, I am reviewing another product from Forest essentials.
I love my night skincare regime, I always put more time and thought for my night time routine. My skin is very dry, so I have to douse myself in as much moisture and hydration as I can. The Eternal youth formula night cream was suggested by the SA at the forest essentials store and I got it with no second thought. Read on to find out my views.
Forest Essentials Eternal Youth Formula Date & Litchi
Price: Rs. 3895 for 50 gms
What company says:
An Ancient formulation from the early 17th century using the most effective and precious ingredients, prepared according to the Vedic Shastras that visibly diminishes signs of ageing by eliminating fine lines and restoring firmness. Specific mantras are chanted while the cream is mixed by hand.
Date – Dates are rich in several antioxidant flavonoids which have the ability to protect skin cells from harmful effects of oxygen-free radicals.The fermented Date Pulp gives the skin a smooth satin sheen.
Genhu – Genhu prevents premature ageing and reduces ultra violet rays induced sun damage.
Kasturi Manjal also known as Wild Turmeric is purifying and refines the skin texture.It lightens and brightens the skin giving it a healthy glow.
Litchi – Rich Litchi fruit rejuvenate and replenishes skin moisture levels, diminishing fine lines, toning and firming the skin. It also contains oligonol which fights ageing and reduces pigmentation.
What I think:
This night cream comes in a plastic jar, similar to that of the soundarya radiance cream. Its not very heavy, but feels sturdy. Although the jar size is not very travel friendly. The cream has almost dirty white colour to it, and is quite rich and thick in texture. It smells heavenly of litchi, but its not overpowering at all, in fact, I find it quite pleasant.
The cream spreads easily on the skin and is absorbed right up. My dry skin literally drinks it up. I find it very hydrating and non sticky. I hate it when those “rich” looking creams make my skin sticky.
I love how it makes my skin so plump in the morning. I can see my skin looking super glowy and radiant every morning. With regular use, I can feel that my skin doesn’t get as dry, and I don’t see any dry patches either. Everytime I wake up, it looks like I had good amount of water the last day. I am really enjoying using this as my night cream. I am surely going to repurchase.
The price on this one is also a lot, but forest essentials is a luxury brand. I took this with me when i travelled to US in winters. It kept my skin hydrated even in the snowing weather. I am absolutely delighted and in love with this one. I have also noticed some firming with this one, not anything extreme, but I do feel my smile lines are a tad less prominent.
You can get forest essentials from their stores or from nykaa.com
