Forest Essentials Mysore Sandalwood & Nagkesar Facial Treatment Masque

Price : Rs. 1,395/- for 50 gm

A nourishing Facial Pack made with Sandalwood and Nagkesar mixed with nourishing herbs, flowers and fruit to make a highly nutritious Mask. Honey’s natural antioxidant and anti-microbial properties help to protect the skin from the damage of the sun’s rays, and replenishes skin moisture, leaving it feeling soft and supple. Does this product live up to its claims? Find out more in my review below 🙂

Product Contents:

  • Almond oil from sweet almonds is the most nutritious, adds glow, deeply moisturizes.
  • Sandalwood retains moisture levels and is purifying, cooling and soothing.
  • NagKesar has skin re-texturising, toning and firming properties. It contains several antioxidant compounds which instantly rejuvenate and revitalize dry dehydrated and mature skin.
  • Wheat germ Oil improves blood circulation; repairs damaged skin cells, soothes and softens the skin. It has anti-ageing properties.
  • Turmeric is a strong anti-oxidant that prevents the ageing of the skin, evens out skin tone and color, giving the skin a healthy glow.

How to use : Use after cleansing. Preferably open pores with steaming or a hot towel for five minutes. Smooth on face and neck avoiding the eye area and allow to dry. Rinse off with warm, then cold water. Moisturise as usual.

Packaging – This comes in a the signature sturdy Glass tub with Golden cap. Like all Forest Essential products the look of this container is so classy and beautiful you will instantly fall in love with it.

My thoughts on the Forest Essentials Masque:

Nourishing Mysore Sandalwood & Nagkesar is Off white in color with a mild Sandalwood Fragrance since it is a clay based mask (contains Kaolin) it dries very quickly on the skin. The texture of this mask is very smooth and easy to apply. You don’t have to add water to it which is a good part. After washing my face with water, I do not completely dry my face with the towel, I let it remain a little moist, and then I apply this mask. It dries of completely within 10-15 minutes. The ideal method is to steam your face prior to applying the pack but at times I am just too lazy to do it :p

Coming over to the product claims, although this masque is suitable for People with Dry Skin as per the Skin Expert at Forest Essentials, I still feel it dries my skin a little. And I need to moisturize immediately after washing off this masque since my skin feels a little stretchy. So in terms of moisturizing effect this one doesn’t live upto the mark. That is the downside for me in this product. My skin does feel bright after washing but the effects don’t stay too long.

What I Like about the Forest Essentials Masque 🙂

  • Skin looks bright after washing
  • Calming Fragrance of Sandalwood
  • All natural ingredients

What i don’t like  about the Forest Essentials Masque 🙁

  •  Not suitable for people with extremely dry skin
  • Pricey (This is going to be a constant dislike that you shall see in my each and every review of Forest Essentials Products) :p

Final Thoughts:

This might work really well for people with Normal to Oily skin, but as for someone with Dry Skin, it doesn’t really work well. And you have to moisturize your skin immediately after washing off this masque.

Some Other Forest Essentials products that i have tried 🙂

Until next Time xoxo,

    Normally I do not read post on blogs, however I wish to say that this write-up very forced me to check out and do
    so! Your writing taste has been surprised me. Thank you,
    quite great post.

  8. Randolph - January 7, 2016 at 9:12 am

    Hi there! I could have sworn I’ve been to your blog before but after looking at a
    few of the articles I realized it’s new to me. Anyhow, I’m certainly pleased I discovered
    it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back regularly!

  9. Meghan - January 7, 2016 at 12:16 pm

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
    having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  10. Isabel - January 7, 2016 at 2:12 pm

    Excellent site. Plenty of helpful info here. I am sending
    it to some pals ans additionally sharing in delicious.
    And obviously, thanks on your sweat!

  11. Sylvia - January 7, 2016 at 3:01 pm

    Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a
    tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and
    I’m looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic
    but I had to ask!

    • admin - January 8, 2016 at 8:13 am

      Hi, I started my Blog via , but i have later on personalized the design of this website with the help of a website designing company ( I have had completely no issues whatsoever understanding and working through wordpress. and i think it is an easy blog platform for newbies like us, since they even have several forums that help you out if you face any issues whatsover. Now worries about getting off the topic 🙂 Happy Blogging! 🙂

  12. bloomington Banquet halls - January 7, 2016 at 3:11 pm

    Hi! I understand this is somewhat off-topic but I
    needed to ask. Does operating a well-established
    blog such as yours require a lot of work? I am brand new to
    operating a blog but I do write in my diary on a daily basis.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience
    and views online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new
    aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
