REVIEW: Forest Essentials Velvet Silk Body Cream Indian Rose Absolute





My One Sided Affair with Forest Essentials Velvet Silk Body Cream Indian Rose Absolute


ISLM Writer: Nimisha

Yes, I have been MIA. I wish it was MIB (Men In Black just in case you were wondering), but nevertheless. So, I am back after three long months. Oh and yes, I laubbbb being back.




So, official the monsoons have hit Pune. It is such a relief from that scorching heat. But the thing I hate about this wet weather is the fact that my skin behaves weird.
On the contrary, my skin feels dry if I do not apply any moisturiser and tacky if I do. Most body butters behave weird on my skin in this season. (No I am not blaming The Body Shop here; its just the time of the year when both my skin and butter do not get along).
So, I switched to sorbets (hands up for the babes who love The Body Shop sorbets); but alas, monsoons, you little weasel. I feel my skin craving for moisture in a matter of 2 hours or so.
I was on a hunt for a body lotion/butter/cream anything, that would tame my skin for the monsoons at the least.

Forest Essentials Velvet Silk Body Cream Indian Rose Absolute happened by chance. I was in store to pick up the Forest Essentials Body Polisher Hydrating Sea Salt Crystal Rose (a review for another day).
Since I love the smell of roses, I picked this one to give it a try and well, our love affair started.

Retails at Rs.1,695 for 200gms. I would say pricey but worth the splurge.






It stands true to its claims of
A Silken body cream to smooth onto the body while paying more attention to the heels, elbows and knees.This softens the skin and also stimulates the regeneration of skin cells with the unmistakable fragrance of the pure Desi Rose to harmonise and uplift the senses.

I don't find it overly moisturising, which is a plus for me. I find my skin smooth as velvet. Another yay for me.
I love the indubitable soft floral scent of Hindustani Gulab. The fragrance does hold on for a good three-ish hours on my skin, yes, but that is in closed office spaces.

For the slightest of a moment, it is like I have just had the most rejuvenating experience of my life.
The only downside that I see is that since this is a little less creamier as to The Body Shop Body Butters (well most of them), it may not work so well for me in winters and for my lovely dolls with dry skin.
But for any one with normal to oily skin, can wholeheartedly indulge in this extravaganza called "Forest Essentials Velvet Silk Body Cream Indian Rose Absolute"

Overall Rating: 
4/5

Recommendation: 
Ideal for normal to oily skin babes; may work for dry skin dolls in summers. Impeccable rose fragrance that lingers for a good amount of time.

P.S. Positives and Negatives are old school. We want answers fast these days. So, I will be sticking to verdicts (unless until absolutely needed). B)

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

10 Best Loose Powders Available in India

10 Best Loose Powders Available in IndiaISLM Writer: Sanchita

Summer is going to knock on the door soon and we, who are blessed (or cursed) with oily skin, will crawl back to our powders and/or matte foundations to keep the skin oil-free as far as possible. Being oily skinned, I have always found my way back to loose powders even though their packaging is slightly messy. This is because loose or translucent powders are more finely milled than the compact versions and hence gives you an even look rather than a made-up cakey one. Compact has the tendency to look rough under eyes or around the mouth whereas loose powders work excellently. No wonder, oily skin stays matte for longer duration than it does with the compact ones. Mostly, it gives sheer to buildable coverage and sits on the skin like a natural finish look.
