All products: Forest Essentials | Photography and Editing: Done by me

So my skin type is slightly oily, it’s acne prone so my pores usually clog and my skin breaks out very easily. If you’re in the same boat as me, products by Forest Essentials are MAGIC to the skin, literally. Thanks to my amazing dermatologist and these products my skin feels so good and i’m the #HappiestInMyForestEssentialsSkin ❤

Forest Essentials was founded in the year 2000 after many years of meticulous research and development with trained Ayurvedic physicians. Their range of natural skin care and hair care products advocates the ayurvedic view that a holistic approach is necessary for beauty care using only naturally distilled pure essential oils, pure cold pressed, organically grown vegetable oils and that plant extracts should be used in skin applications. They use age-old ayurvedic formulations from scholars in many of their herb ingredients, oil formulas, and vedic treatments. Which is then interspersed with the understanding of a modern biochemist’s point of view to create products that have their basis in India’s oldest science but presented in an easy-to-use manner. Building on the cultural foundations of the past and utilizing the evolving research and technology of the present, Forest Essentials creates the future traditions of beauty.

Their mission statement is to be the most trusted brand that pioneers the use of ayurveda to create products that combine beauty , purity and serenity as a way of life while contributing to the society we live in, and they most definitely have achieved this!

Say goodbye to harsh, synthetic scrubs, lifeless lotions, and soaps made from waste machine oils. Make space on your bathroom shelves for a gourmet feast for your skin with Forest Essentials.

The purest, the most nutritious, the very best 🙂
