Forest Essentials Nargis Cleansing Shower Butter – Review


Forest Essentials makes some of the loveliest skin care products with beautiful scents and textures and I recently discovered their Nargis Cleansing Shower Butter which became an instant favourite! It comes in a beautiful tub packaging with a golden screw-on lid. It doesn’t come with an additional plastic insert inside so make sure you don’t get any water inside as it may reduce the life of the product. Since its called a shower butter, I was expecting a thick, rich, butter but its surprisingly light and airier than I expected. The creamy consistency makes it very easy to use and once you massage the product on damp skin, it lathers slightly on contact with water. It emulsifies completely with water and once you rinse it off, it leaves the skin feeling cleansed and soft without any residue. This is the first time I’ve tried the Nargis scent and its a very delicate and beautiful floral scent. Forest Essentials products always smell very pure, very fresh and luxurious to me and they always feel lovely to use. I wish the scent lingered on for some time on the skin because I absolutely love this natural and delicate fragrance. The shower butter feels mildly moisturising (it contains shea and kokum butters) but if you have dry skin, do follow up with a body lotion or cream post bath. If you’d like the scent to last longer, you can layer the body lotion (or body cream) and body mist from the Nargis range.

It is a luxury item but a little goes a long way so the 200 ml jar would last a while. If are a fan of Forest Essentials products or enjoy delicate floral scents, I would recommend this. I personally did not expect to the like the Nargis fragrance or the delightful airy shower butter as much as I did and I am definitely going to pick up more products from this range next time.

    Forest Essentials is one of my fav brands. Haven’t tried the nargis range but their rose bath oil is an absolute delight.

      Hi Divya, its not too creamy or rich and you can use it in the spring/summer as well. Its not a new launch, its been around for a while. I just took some time reviewing it!
