Forest Essentials ♥ Pure Rose Water Facial Toner Review ♥

I could've titled this post  "I'm currently obsessed about"!
Summers are well here in NZ (Yess!! We are in southern hemisphere)  and I honestly can't have enough of it. I'm obsessed about everything that is even vaguely summery! Bring on the lemonades, strawberry shakes and barely there clothes :p

You know I'm pretty big on natural skincare right? This review is about an awesome product from a fast emerging Indian brand "Forest Essentials" that is basically putting our ancient Indian skincare knowledge from Ayurveda into affordable luxury. Finally someone has hit the hammer on the nail. Spot on! Beautiful packaging, natural products and effective concoctions.



I bought these goodies back in April/May and forced my family to ship them to NZ, with tons (in every literal sense of that word!) of other stuff. On the same note, before I forget it, Forest Essentials website does international shipping as well. Free shipping above certain purchase amount.

This is my makeup and skincare haul from India. No no no.. hold that thought!! We bloggers are a humble lot. This is not bragging by any means!!!

Haul from India!

Lets talk about about the star of this lot! 'Forest Essentials Pure Rose Water Facial Toner'

Make way for the star!!
Honey, lemon and Rosewater Cleanser (Left) and Pure Rosewater Facial Toner (Right)

I'll be reviewing the cleanser as well  pretty soon!
I've never fallen head over heels for a toner. You know how they never seem to do a thing. At least for me, it's always been more of an unnecessary chore. But then this came and changed the game. Totally recommend it and so buying more when I go back home later this month (Yeahhh!!!!!!)

I'm not even sure what it does to my skin but its been so lovely lately (**Touches wood**). Makes it so soft and mine's been behaving on the breakouts front as well (touches wood again!). Can it be this?

The purity process!
Only one ingredient!
Cutting short the blabber. Here's the bottom line points:

The Scent: I'm a rose fanatic; that weird person who goes about sniffing roses in random gardens. This has the purest rose scent ever! It's crazily awesome. I'm sure you can sense my excitement here!!
♥ It tones really well. Leaves skin supple
♥ Keeps my nose even and blackheads free! Wowzies
♥ Can take off light makeup too
♥ Great for freshening up skin.. Summer essential definitely!
♥ I like to make my DIY face packs with it. Chick pea flour and this.. perfect pairing!
100% Natural and free from parabens, petroleum, GMO, sulphates, formaldehyde, PEGS, artificial color and synthetic fragrance (Yup! copied straight from the website, but honestly how impressive is that list!!)
No animal testing
♥ The toner comes in spray packaging as well known as Rosewater toning mist. I'm surely stocking buying that next! It'll be so cool to be able use it as makeup finishing spray. Hydration on the go!
 
Beauty!

                                                      

                                                              Verdict

According to Ayurvedic philosophy, rose has cooling, soothing and moisturizing properties. It hydrates skin and is one of the best toners for dry skin. I am a convert now! You have to feel it to believe it. It's that good! 
It's scent takes you to another world..........where it's just rained, the air is infused with aroma of roses, there are unicorns in your garden and all you hear is the sound of fresh water flowing, somewhere distant.... I'm at peace!

Price: Rs 1025/ $20 for 200 ml
Buy it from: www.forestessentialsindia.com 

Are you a fan of toners? Do you believe in the CTM routine (Cleansing, toning, mositurizing!). Have you found your HG toner? Keen to hear your thoughts!

Love
