I have used several bath oils or pure oils like almond oil, olive oil etc but this is the first time I am using any oil which is specially formulated for body massage. Forest Essentials products are really good and purely ayurvedic so I have bought one from them which I am going to review today.
Claims– Forest Essentials Indian Rose & Geranium Body massage Oil contains excellent moisturizing and nourishing properties of Organic Black Sesame Oil which tones and firms the skin. Wheat Germ Oil, improves blood circulation and repairs damaged skin cells. Rice Bran Oil is an antioxidant and rich in nutrients and potent with potent herbs like Ashwgandha, a superior rejuvenative and anti-oxidant herb renowned for anti-ageing and Bala, makes rough dry skin smooth and supple. Rose has cooling, soothing and moisturizing properties, is naturally hydrating with a seductive floral scent, and promotes a feeling of well-being and harmony. The essential oil of Geranium is known for its healing effects on the skin which is used to soothe dry skin and reduce cellulite through massage.
Packaging– As usual this body massage oil also comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a classy looking golden-colored cap. But the opening is wide which doesn’t allow it to travel with.
Color, smell, and texture– Again it has got that luxurious rich rosy smell which smells divine and also lingers even after application. It has a deep golden color I think this is due to the black sesame oil present in it. Texture wise it is also light but a bit heavy than the regular bath and shower oil as it is a massage oil and not supposed to be used as a daily basis.
Performance– it has excellent ingredients in it like rice bran oil, geranium flower oil, vitamin E etc and Forest Essentials products contain rich ingredients always. I use it after scrubbing my body and washing it with lukewarm water. I massage in a circular motion concentrating the points of lymph drainage for about 10 minutes once in a week. It gives a fresh feeling every time I use ths. It also makes skin glowy, healthy and supple. My dry skin literally craves for this.
Pros– • Excellent ingredient list • Pure ayurvedic massage oil • Hydrates skin without greasy feeling • Not heavy texture • Makes skin smooth and baby soft as I use it after scrubbing
Cons– • No cons from my side but it may not suit oily skin girls
