Forest Essentials Sandalwood & Saffron Night Treatment Cream

Hey everyone!I am gonna share about a great product with you all in this review.

Its the Forest Essentials Sandalwood & Saffron Facial Night Treatment Cream.

Price: INR 1275 for 50 g. (Full size)

This pot I have is the trial size of 15 g. quantity.

The price of this cream has been increased by around INR 300 over an year.

Shelf life: 6 months from opening.



This tiny pot comes in a transparent plastic tub with a golden screw-on lid. There is an inner lid too to prevent the cream getting messy with the lid.

This tub withstood my dropping it twice from the dresser.. 🙂

The full size bottle also comes in a tub only.

What the product claims:

(From Forest Essentials website)

These intensive night treatments encapsulate high-performance vitamins, enzymes and hydrators to deliver vital nutrition to the skin. They work most effectively at night while the skin is at rest.

A unique night treatment formula which blends the pure oils of sandalwood and saffron to nurture normal to dry skin types. This advanced age-defying formula has a corrective and preventive action, instantly diminishing fine lines and restoring firmness and radiance. It has an exceptionally high oil content to provide extra nourishment. Vitamin C, a strong antioxidant, tones the skin excellently while carrot oil provides Vitamin A which boosts cell renewal.

The way I see it:

I just love this cream… just short of words to describe it.
The cream is pure white & has a divine fragrance.
The fragrance is primarily sandalwood though saffron is detectable too.
I am primarily in love with this product for the fragrance – it is so soothing & relaxing. It calms down my senses preparing me for a good night’s sleep.
The cream glides on effortlessly on the skin and sinks into the skin pretty quick too.
There is no oily or greasy feeling after usage, as is the case with most heavy-duty night creams in the market.
Very little is required for entire face & neck. This small tub I have would easily last for 2 months.
When applied in excess, this cream can make the skin look greasy and oily too.
This cream not only makes the skin soft & supple, but also a brings in a natural radiance from deep within.
Skin feels soft & smooth in the morning & one can still spot that natural glow in the skin even then.
I am sure this cream will improve the skin’s radiance with regular & prolonged usage.
As FE suggests, this cream is a perfect choice for normal-dry skin. FE has another night cream specifically for combination-oily skin types – FE Jasmine & Patchouli Night Cream.
This cream would suit sensitive skinned too, like how most other FE products suit them.
Take a look at the swatch of this cream & the lovely glow it brings upon blending into the skin below –
