Forest Essentials Purifying Soya Milk Delicate Facial Cleanser : Review


Guest Post by Nishu


Forest Essentials Soya Milk Delicate Facial Cleanser (Product Claims) : The first rule of Ayurvedic skin care is to cleanse, tone and nourish. The secret to proper cleansing is to remove dead cells and toxins, clear clogged pores and clean make-up without stripping the skin’s natural oils and moisture content. Anantmool is very effective for acne and pigmentation. Kumud is firming and toning. Nagkesar has skin re-texturising , toning and firming properties. Lavender is soothing, calming and healing. Aloe Vera has strong soothing and moisture retaining properties and stimulates skin regeneration. Soya Milk promotes moisture retention and helps restore skin elasticity, it has mild cleansing properties.


Jojoba oil makes the skin softer, smoother and reduces fine-lines. Kokum Butter contains an abundance of healing ingredients including vitamins, minerals, proteins and a unique fatty acid profile. These fatty acids are indispensable for their emollient properties. Gotkula has sometimes been referred to as the Fountain of Youth and makes a highly effective ingredient for skin, as it deeply stimulates collagen production. Wheat Germ improves blood circulation, repairs damaged skin cells and soothes and softens the skin. It has anti-ageing properties. Carrot Seeds help to maintain the elasticity of the skin thus makes the skin firm and toned.

Forest Essentials Delicate Facial Cleanser Review


This cleanser is a part of Forest Essentials wipe-off range and has a cream consistency. The 200 ml pump bottle is functional and attractive. Forest Essentials products tend to smell strong and this one is no different. It’s a milky+lavender+floral kind of scent. Very soothing!

The cleanser is expected to cleanse, firm and retain moisture and I feel it does all that quite well.  I’ve been using this delicate facial cleanser as cleansing milk, makeup remover and cream cleanser for the last few months. One 200 ml bottle lasts for good 5-6 months so it is a good value for money and it’s a natural and nasties-free product too.


As a cleanser, it’s great for taking off dust and other impurities from skin. About 3 pumps of product on a cotton wool is enough for the whole face. However, since it’s very thick, cotton wool can feel quite harsh on skin if over-rubbed. As a makeup remover, this is quite effective in taking off light makeup in single swipe. For water proof and stubborn makeup, you’d certainly need to use more product and repeat. I prefer using it straight from the bottle on to my made up face, sans the cotton pad. It saves both the product and face (from over scrubbing).

I’ve noticed a warm tingling sensation when I massage it on skin. The cleanser tends to absorb in so needs to be rinsed with warm water. My favorite way to use this cleanser is as an everyday morning cleanser. If you take good care of your skin before hitting bed at night, there’s hardly any gunk to take off in the morning. I like to retain moisture for the day so I use a pump or two of this as a cream cleanser, massage it in for few seconds and follow up with a luke warm water rinse.

As it’s essentially a non foaming creamy formula, it leaves skin supple and soft, no moisture loss so to speak of.  Since I have dry skin, this cleanser is perfect for dry winter weather. It’ll also be a perfect morning cleanser for me throughout the year. For oily skin, this Soya milk cleanser will be good as a daily makeup remover as it’s quite gentle and effective. With no parabens and sulfates, it’s a great multi-purpose product to have on your bathroom shelf.

    FE soya milk delicate cleanser is so delicate & perfect for extremely dry & sensitive skin … if someone likes lather free facial cleanser then its perfect to try, it cleanses the skin & makes the skin soft & softer day by day.. it will definetly going to last for about 5-6 months (FE products comes with 6 months life after opening the packaging)…

      Hi, will do one soon. What moisturizer do you use? I'm having a difficult time with the Mumbai humidity as well. I make sure I use Lotus Herbals 3-in-1 matte sunscreen after moisturizing to keep my skin a little more matte.

  16. July 17, 2015 / 3:46 pm

    FE products never disappoint me. It sounds suitable for winter. Nice review Nishu
