Intensive Everyday Repair and Protective Ayurvedic Formulation. All the ingredients are sourced from Ayurvedic texts and are 100% natural. The formulation is an enriched version of natural sebum which instantly penetrates and plumps the skin. Sebum is a natural oil, secreted by the sebaceous glands in skin that lubricate and protect the skin. It can be used on its own, under a moisturizer, or as a makeup primer for velvet skin.
I have recently switched to Forest Essentials skincare (since a month before)….. ermmm.. not for any specific reason but just that beauty blogger in me wanted to try something new. And right now I am smitten by every single product I had or been using from this luxurious brand. You can find me raving about their night treatment cream and facial ubtan in previous reviews and today its their very famous Sanjeevani Beauty Elixir.
When it comes to packaging, the brand just nails it!!! Very appealing with an Ancient Indian touch to it which I absolutely love. Sanjeevani Beauty Elixir comes in tub packaging with golden lid which I prefer from older pump bottle packaging because of the creamier texture. The formula is light with a nice velvety feel to it. It just spreads nicely and sinks into skin in no time leaving a smooth feel. It is basically everyday use skincream which deeply nourishes & protects skin. I must say it delivers alot more than it claims here!!! I don’t have much problematic skin apart from my dryness issue and I do take care of it pretty well following the daily skincare routine. I could notice a clear difference in my skin texture after a week use of this. My skin was radiant, plumped and more even toned with a supple feel. My skin looks rejuvenated and fresh whole day.This is very nourishing but then used alone I do feel the need of moisturizing my skin after 4-5 hours. I have used this with Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate & Soundarya Advanced Serum, which works great and keeps my skin comfortable whole day. It has faint herbal smell which doesn’t bother much and fades away quickly.
The velvety smooth finish allows my bb/cc creams or foundation to glide seamlessly giving a much smoother appearance to the skin. I am glad that I don’t need a separate primer while using this helping chucking out one product layer. I have no complaints whatsoever here and if got to be picky,I would say the addition of SPF would have taken this product to perfection! Basic sun protection is very common in most of the skincare stuff these days and something basic like SPF 30-35 would have helped to eliminate one more layer of product from the skin especially when you prefer to keep everything light. Leaving that apart.. I would highly higly recommend this cream to everyone (with or without skin issues) and see the magic working!
