My Indian Beauty Haul | Forest Essentials

With Diwali fast approaching, I thought I’d share a haul from my favourite Indian luxury brand - Forest Essentials

I've always had an obsession with Indian culture ever since I was a small child, this was passed down from my mum who shared the same passion. It really wasn't (and still isn't) unusual for a vintage Bollywood film to playing in our house or listening to a classic bhangra soundtrack and my gorgeous next door neighbours Shahara and Shihida dressing me up an in beautiful Saris, gold bangles and bindis. 

My love of India extends to high-end beauty products, and everytime a friend of mine travels to India from Dubai, they always pick me a stunning beauty haul from Forest Essentials;

           Be good to your skin. You’ll wear it everyday for the rest of your life!                                                     –Renée Rouleau. (Click to Tweet) 
Each time I get a gift box filled with goodies from this luxury high-end Indian beauty brand I get very excited. The presentation is an opulent box, decorated in jewel tones colours and furnished with dried rose petals all that even before getting to the gorgeous Ayurveda products, which are always amazing. This is a high-end Indian beauty range, with prices ranging from 70 DHS a piece. With this latest haul, I was spoilt with some of the new haircare range which has genuinely cemented my adoration for this brand. 


By tapping into ancient remedies and beauty secrets of Ayurveda, Forest Essentials have launched a natural Hair Care collection including shampoos, hair cleansers, conditioners and hair revitalizers. Free from harsh sulphate cleansers, the range actually cleanses and restores the vitality of your hair by repairing hydrating and nourishing. 


Japapatti & Brahmi : 65 DHS / 1175 Rs / £13
The Dubai heat and constant sunlight can make your hair quite dry and brittle, this hair cleanser is enriched with Hibiscus and Brahmi extract which rejuvenates the scalp. The Nagarmotha extract is meant to prevent hair loss and helps maintains natural hair colour.

Amla, Honey & Mulethi : 65 DHS / 1175 Rs / £13
A herbal infused and nutrient-rich sulphate free shampoo contains Amla, Reetha, Nilini, Haritaki, Soya Protein, Pure Coconut Oil and raw organic Honey. I have found that this cleaner shampoo gives my naturally blonde hair a great shine. (pretty hard to achieve with natural blonde hair) - I have also found this shampoo strips out the daily pollutant buildup, making my hair feel lightweight. The fragrance is so amazing and lasts in the hair all day. 


Bhring Raj : 54 DHS / Rs. 975 / £11
This hair revitalizer is enriched with Ayurvedic herbal extracts like Bhringraj, Hibiscus, Amla Fruit, Aloe Vera, Green Tea, Fenugreek seeds and Arnica is great! I have found that my hair feels much stronger. I spray it on the scalp every day between shampoos, and since using it, my hair has looked and felt silky and nourished. 


Madurau Jasmine & Mogra : 70 DHS / 1250 Rs / £15
I'm really into massage oils so was especially excited to try this one out. Its a cold pressed oil containing unrefined black sesame, wheat germ and rice Bran oils with Ayurvedic herbs and jasmine with mogra essential oil, which again smells amazing! I tend to use this all over after a shower, and since using the cold press oil, my skin has felt lustrious. 


What is Ayurveda :

Ayurveda is considered one of the ancient science of health & medicine as well as beauty. Primarily focusing on using organic natural herbs and ingredients sustainably sourced with care.

Why Forest Essentials : 

If you cannot eat it, do not use it on your skin that's the ethos of Forest Essentials and everything available from the brand is a gourmet feast for your skin. 

Do you have a brand that I may not know about, that you want to recommend?
