Review:- The Forest Essentials Velvet Silk Body Cream Vitamin E comes in a round, clear plastic tub with a golden lid. From the first sight only, the product feels quite luxurious. Along with the product, you also get a wooden spoon to scoop the cream out from the tub. I don’t like dipping my fingers in the tub for hygiene reasons so I quite appreciated this accessory.
The texture/consistency of the cream is thick and it is opaque white in color. The cream is easy to spread although it takes about a minute to completely absorb into the skin. The fragrance (which personally I like) is quite overpowering and is not something that can be ignored. It is quite strong and tends to stay for a while. Yes! people will notice the distinct fragrance coming from you so make sure you like it before deciding to purchase it in the store. As for the cream, once fully absorbed, it leaves the skin very soft and hydrated with a slight healthy sheen to it.The wonderful result lasts for the next 12-24 hours. No complaints here!
1. The product claims to be 100% natural with ingredients grown without pesticides and chemicals.
2. It is easy to spread and is well-absorbed.
3. It leaves the skin baby soft and quite hydrated.Great for winters!
4. The packaging and the product feel quite luxurious.
1. The fragrance might not be liked by everyone. I would suggest to test the product in the store before purchasing it.
2. Not suitable for oily skinned beauties as it leaves a sheen behind.
Overall Comments: Forest Essentials Velvet Silk Body Cream Vitamin E is best suited for normal to dry skinned beauties looking for a natural body cream free of harmful chemicals. If you fall into that category, go ahead give it a try. You won’t regret it.
As for me, I have a normal to oily skintype so I don’t find myself using it as much as I would want to. Although I find this to be very effective as a hand and foot cream, especially in this harsh winter season.
Would I repurchase?: Maybe not. After I am finished with this, I would like to purchase something lighter and more suitable for my skin type.
