For over a year now, I am using oils in place of makeup removers. (I still keep makeup removers for travel or when I am just plain lazy) I use coconut or almond oil.
Why use oils to remove makeup? Oil attracts oil. Every trace of makeup from foundation to eyeliner to mascara is effortlessly recovered. You do not need to stretch or pull your skin (which is great for your skin and protects you from wrinkles). On top of all – no chemical and 100% natural.
Unfortunately, coconut oil or almond oil can burns at times if it accidentally gets inside eyes so, you have to be very careful.
But Forest Essentials Floral Makeup Remover does not irritate or burns. I really like that I finally have an off the counter oil makeup remover which does the work brilliantly without any issues. I also love how nice it smells. It has a floral smell (morga and jasmine mix) which makes me look forward to using it. Let me add here, in case you have never use oil cleansers, and you need to wash you face after using this. You might have to use a face wash for the same. But, is the worth the fact that your skin is not encountering any chemicals or mineral oil. Also, you are saving your skin from possible wrinkles.

495675 for 100ml, Forest Essentials floral makeup remover is cheaper for an oil makeup remover without mineral oil. The other option in MAC Cleanse Off Oil for Rs 1600 for 150 ml. [Edit: Check FabIndia Cleansing Oil]
- Have a pleasant floral fragrance
- Contains added Vit E which is great for skin and act as natural preservative
- They have to use a dropper packaging. But, I think droppers are not travel-friendly as the oil can drip.
- Not a one step product. You need to wash your face after you using it. It is the commitment you need to make when you use any oil makeup remover.
|Forest Essentials Floral Makeup Remover Review|
Overall - I fail to recall the last time I was wooed this much for any skincare product from the very first use. I really like this and have already brought the next bottle. It removes every trace of makeup without irritating or tugging or pulling the skin. It is chemical free, 100% natural and free of mineral oil. I totally suggest Forest Essentials Floral Makeup Remover.
[Edit: When the oil was about to get over, it started to irritate my eyes. Not only that, it felt heavier than usual. It was impossible to use. As I had a fresh bottle, I compared my present bottle with that. As the new bottle has been standing still, I found that that the oil has separated. There is lighter oil on top and a heavier, darker oil on the bottom. The heavier oil was around 20% of the whole formula. When I was using the first bottle, I used it directly. As the bottle had no pump, the lighter part used to come out from the top when I used it, and the heavier left behind. That heavier oil was not at all suitable for direct use. I suspect that it was (maybe) Castor Oil, but it has no such mention on the label. This made me wonder if they use adulterated oils because none of the oils described in the ingredients list can be that heavy. I am using the second bottle now, and I make sure that I shake it before using. But, I am not purchasing it again.]
