My Take On Forest Essentials Lavender & Neroli Light Day Lotion With SPF 25:

(My skin type: Combination, Dehydrated, Sensitive & Acne-prone)

I was searching for a good, natural light day lotion for the hot, summer season as my combination skin turns super oily during summers. But before purchasing a full-size product, I thought of trying out a sample version of this moisturizer. Forest Essentials is an Indian traditional, authentic skincare brand-a pioneer of luxurious Ayurveda. I have used a couple of products from this brand to date. So, let’s see how this light day lotion fared for me!

Product Packaging & Texture:

Forest Essentials Lavender & neroli sample-sized light day lotion comes in a tiny 8g tube secured with a tight screw cap. The full-sized product (40ml) comes in beautiful packaging, though! The details like ingredients, usage direction, and product-related information, everything is mentioned on the back of the packaging. This travel-size version is easy to carry around, so it’s perfect for trips.

Forest Essentials light day lotion (Travel size)

This lavender, neroli light day lotion with SPF 25 from FE has a thick and rich creamy texture. It has a lovely herbal fragrance that rejuvenates the olfactory senses. The scent doesn’t last long, though!

How to use:

As instructed, I take a small amount of this moisturizer onto my fingertips and apply it all across my cleansed and toned face & neck. I try to keep my skin slightly moist while applying this lotion. Although the name says it’s a lotion, the texture feels more like a smooth day cream.

When it comes to this Forest Essentials light day moisturizer, a little amount goes a long way! As soon as the summer season started here in the UK and the mercury level had gone a bit higher, I started using this moisturizer.  And the results are so far, so good! 

What it does-Performance Details:

It is true to its name and claim of a light day lotion! When applied, this lotion gets absorbed by the skin quickly leaving behind no greasy residue. It feels so feather-light on my skin, which is a prime requirement for any day face lotion targeted towards oily-combination skin type. At the same time, dry skin beauties will find it less hydrating and will have to follow it with another heavy-duty moisturizer. Trust me, I tried it first during the winter season and then decided to use it in the summer season!

The texture and swatches of Forest Essentials lavender and neroli lotion

Forest Essentials Lavender & Neroli light day lotion makes your skin soft, nourished, and supple. It keeps my skin hydrated for about 5-6 hours! The best part is it’s loaded with Yashad Bhasma, a natural sunscreen, which is the source of SPF 25, protecting your skin from the harsh sun rays. However, make sure, if you are planning to spend outdoors for a longer duration, you’re applying a dedicated sunscreen for extra protection! Somehow, using moisturizers or any skincare or makeup product infused with SPF alone has never protected my skin from getting sunburned. I always apply a sunscreen/sunblock along with moisturizer for an added layer of protection. 

At times, purely natural or organic skincare products rich in oils cause breakouts. But, thankfully, this light day lotion neither irritated my sensitive skin nor has caused me any acne so far.

  1. What a wonderfully in depth and honest product review! I honestly love anything lavender and the Neroli is an added bonus ???? I may have to look into this!

  2. I have always said, if you find the brand that makes you happy with the results, stick with it, and do not experiment anymore. taking care of the skin is the most important

  3. The few things you said you don’t like are things that won’t work well for me. Especially not being good for dry skin as mine almost always is dry. And I’m cheap 😉 But I agree with others, I bet this smells great since I love lavender!

  4. This is a great review, you’ve covered everything! I don’t really have a skin care routine, I’ve always been lucky with clear skin but I like that this has spf and I bet it smells amazing xx
