About Forest Essentials Hand pounded Organic Fruit Facial Scrub:

This nourishing face scrub, hand-pounded to the right consistency, blends fresh organically grown Dates and Peaches which are excellent antioxidants and improve elasticity. Apricot Kernel oil nourishes, softens and improves skin elasticity. Pure Raw Honey’s natural antioxidants protect the skin from sun damage, replenish skin moisture, absorb impurities from the skin pores, making it an ideal cleansing agent. Finely milled oil-rich walnut provides deep cleansing and brightens the complexion by gently removing dead cells and impurities, to gently exfoliates, revealing a beautifully polished and glowing complexion. Turmeric is a strong anti-oxidant that prevents ageing of the skin. It evens out skin tone and colour, and gives the skin a healthy glow. Pure Rosewater tones, diminishes fine lines and rehydrates the skin while Bael smoothes and cools the skin. Neem as a purifier is healing, cooling and anti septic. With an intensive conditioning action and packed with antioxidants, this scrub is the ultimate food for the skin

Making of the Product: This unique old Ayurvedic formulation uses a variety of fruits including Dates, Peaches & Apricots. These are left whole with wild Turmeric roots & Neem leaves & buried just below the surface of the ground in earthenware pots & covered with leaves that are changed from time to time. In about a month’s time this fruit pulp ferments along with the roots and leaves, and becomes a rich mass of live organic matter with natural glycolic acid (Fruit Acid). This is then taken out, hand pounded & mixed with organic Honey, Apricot Kernel oil & finally with Sweet Almond oil to produce a rich cleansing and nutritive food for the skin.

How to use: Use a small amount on damp skin and rub gently to cleanse. Rinse well.

My Take on Forest Essentials Hand pounded Organic Fruit Facial Scrub:

I am a big fan of forest Essentials products. I think almost everything that I have tried till date from this brand has worked for me. I love trying new face scrubs available in the market. The hand pounded scrub really did sound perfect for my skin and its ingredient list is so rich and tempting 😀

Packaging: This product comes in tub like plastic packaging with screw on cap. The packaging looks very colorful and luxurious with loads of information regarding ingredient list and its usage. I reallyloved its packaging, its absolutely mess free. The only con is that its quite bulky hence not travel friendly. I would advise you all to take out small quantity with a small spatula instead of dipping your fingers.

Fragrance: It has rich fruity fragrance mainly of peaches and apples which I personally liked a lot. It makes me go for the product more often. Though fragrance is a personal thing still I think most of you would love it.

Texture wise: The consistency of the facial scrub is very thick, you just can’t use it as such, its too heavy. One has to take out small quantity, and use it only after diluting it with water. It has both coarse and soft granules of varying size. Bigger granules can be harsh for skin, hence use it after dilution. It looks like some thick fruity pulp or chutney 😀

Overall Performance: Forest essentials fruit scrub is a cocktail of loads of fruit pulps and very rich in AHAs, whenever I use my skin this scrub instantly makes my face look radiant, even toned and bright. It leaves my skin glowing with health and removes all dullness in a jiffy. My skin feels very smooth, baby soft and polished. It removes blackheads to a great extent too. It removes tanning with regular use too. Its granules are of varying size, bigger granules are quite harsh so may be it won’t be suitable for people with large pores and very sensitive skin.
