Forest Essentials Madurai Jasmine and Mogra Light Day Cream

I was so impressed with Forest Essentials' Ubtan that I decided to test their other products. My mother had been raving about the smell of Forest Essentials' Jasmine and Mogra Day Cream that I cautiously decided to try it. Why cautiously you ask? While my mom is my hero she is also not one of the chosen ones in make-up terms. To her. pink and mauve are the same, reds and pinks are "almost the same," shimmer and matte are "somewhat also the same," and well, need I say more? So while I trust her judgement on 99.99% of things, beauty products do not fall into that large bucket. And I have one more feather in my cap now.

Let me start off wit the positives, the Forest Essentials Jasmine and Mogra Day Cream is very light, absorbs quickly, didn't clog my pores, and moisturizes well enough. The formula is great for those with normal to oily skin to use. It also has SPF 25, but I'm not sure what the ingredients are that make up the sunscreen so I can't evaluate that aspect properly. I used my regular sunscreen on top for added protection.

Now that the positives are out of the way, let me start with why I disliked this product so much. The smell is overpowering, strong, and does not fade for a long time. I would gladly buy a body butter that smelled like this. There is no artificial element to the smell, it really does remind me of jasmine (incidentally I hail from somewhere near Madurai). But it is too strong and long lasting.

The first time I applied the cream, I liked the smell but I was waiting for the smell to subside. It never did. I ended up getting a headache, which continued for the five days I used this cream. My aunt used to joke that the women in my family are goddesses who each represent a specific part of a headache. This cream made me realize there might be something to that idea after all. My headache led to painful sinuses and pain near my temples. The moment I stopped using the cream, my headache vanished.

Forest Essentials Madurai Jasmine and Mogra Light Day Cream is not a bad cream as far as moisturizing properties, texture, etc. But the smell is so overpowering and in too close proximity with my nose, which I why I say tread cautiously with this one.

Hi Anu!
I feel your pain. Hate face products which have a scent to it. I guess you can use it as a body lotion for now.

Hi! I found really great online shop where you can earn money. Each friend that registers because of you, earns you 1$ on your account (they send the money to your account at the end of each month). If you invite a lot of friends, and they all register, you have a lot of money on the account and you can actually order something for free. So, click here to register and start earning some money for shopping :-)

Hi Anu, could you post a review or tell me what you think of BB creams? They're extremely popular in Europe , especially France and UK. I've heard a lot about the Erborian ginseng bb cream and the mishaa one and wondering whether to give it a try.
Love your blog , keep up the good work!

My mom loves mogra/jasmine scent, so I'm always on the hunt for it. While sometimes it's done well, often it's overpowering. Guess this cream is one of the ones to avoid!

Gah, my sensitive skin would not like that, overly-perfumed products are a big no-no in my book...
