Hello my angels,
Eye creams are a key to looking younger and fresher even when the skin is actually ageing. Its the most part of any skin care routine. The dark circles and wrinkles around the eyes often are a big concern for ladies and there are a ton of products in the market claiming to cure it all. Now because its the delicate eye area, I am very cautious about what I use. Forest Essentials is known for using all natural ayurvedic ingredients so I got this.
Claims for Forest Essentials Intensive Eye Cream With Anise
This Eye Cream is an innovative formula specially designed for the delicate eye area. It reduces dark circles, diminishes puffiness, and firms and tones area around the eyes. Actives extracts of herbs like Papaya and Potato help deliver hydration and moisture to the delicate eye area. Anise and Chakshushya provide necessary moisture and help to smooth skin, reducing the appearance of dry, dehydrated lines.
Rs. 1575/- for 15 grams. I believe the price has now been hiked to a Rs. 2200/- for the exact same product.
In Detail Forest Essentials Intensive Eye Cream With Anise Review
Hydration is the secret to get rid of all the eye area problems. Keeping your body hydrated can work wonders for the skin. Eye creams provide a little bit of extra hydration from the outside so that the eye area does not get very dehydrated and looks healthy. This particular product actually claims to provide hydration more than the other claims, and this is what I love about it.
It comes in a small glass jar packaging with a golden coloured screw lid. The jar is so tiny that it can fit easily anywhere even in a very small handbag. So I love carrying it around with me when I am going somewhere. The outer cartoon packaging has all details about the product. The actual jar does not have much written on it.
The product basically is devoid of any fragrances. It almost does not have any smell to it. My favourite thing about this eye cream is its consistency. It is like the softest butter ever. I mean I almost want them to come with a moisturiser having exactly the same texture and consistency.
How I Use it
I dip my ring finger on the surface of the product and put small dots on the eye area and then gently massage it around for a minute. It is so hydrating that I actually need a very tiny amount of the product to cover my entire eye area. It does not get absorbed immediately. It takes about a couple of minutes to sink in properly into the skin. Does not leave any oily or greasy feeling behind.
This is one of the best eye creams available for hydration. When used regularly, it definitely helps brighten up the under eye area and because of the proper hydration, the dark circles appear reduced. It does not get rid of the fine lines completely, but they appear less noticeable when the skin looks so hydrated and healthy. I have used it on and off and every time that I continue using it for more then 2-3 weeks, I fall in love with it.
This is an amazing eye cream for anyone who is looking for a hydrating one. It brightens up the under eye area when used regularly. It does not get rid of dark circles or fine lines completely but sure makes them less apparent. It has some amazing ingredients and I sure want to recommend this to anyone looking for a decent eye cream. A big thumbs up for Indian Ayurveda! 🙂

Today my recommendation is going to be for your eye area. Always make sure that you are drinking enough water throughout the day. I cannot stress enough about the importance of an eye cream in the beauty regime. Try to include your favourite eye cream and see the difference for yourself. If you think that your under eye area is oily, try to get some non oily under eye gel from the market. There are many available like aloe vera based ones. If you have an aloe vera plant at your home, take the aloe vera gel and apply it on the under eye area.
