Forest Essentials Light Hydrating Facial Gel Pure Rosewater.

The ultimate summer moisturizer for oily, sensitive and acne-prone skin types.

Having oily skin my entire life and after trying hundreds of different moisturizers and lotions, I can say with certainty that this is one of the best gel moisturizers my skin has ever had the privilege of knowing.

I’m obsessed with how terrific rosewater is for hydrating, toning and soothing skin – especially oily, acne-prone skin and sensitive skin. And Forest Essentials makes the best rosewater out there! (You can read all about Facial Toner Pure Rosewater right here).

So when they launched a hydrating gel moisturizer drenched with their famous rosewater, I just HAD to have it! I’m now on my 3rd jar and I’m definitely going to get myself another one. Here’s why.

It’s got a light, cooling, refreshing watery texture.

Summer skin always feels sweaty and oily. But not with this, it doesn’t!
The minute you put it on, your skin feels as if you splashed cold water on it.

It absorbs in a jiffy…without a trace. 

This amazing gel sinks into your skin almost immediately and leaves it feeling hydrated and fresh. It literally disappears into your skin, so theirs absolutely no stickiness.

It hydrates and calms my skin within seconds.

If you have angry skin (acne tends to do that to you) or sensitive skin, this is God-sent. Because this product is packed with aloe vera gel, cucumber and rosewater, it soothes and calms skin down, while reducing redness. Your skin will feel loved.

It smells like a dozen roses.

This is my favourite part. The heady scent of roses every time I pat some on to my skin really makes this product a winner. It’s not an overpowering perfume-y smell, but rather a light, lingering fragrance – as if you’re in a rose garden.

MY VERDICT: This is by far, one of the best gel moisturizers for oily, sensitive and acne prone skin. It’s like ‘rose dew’ for your skin – hydrating, refreshing and intoxicating!
