Forest Essentials Multani Mitti Ubtan Review (4) Forest Essentials Multani Mitti Ubtan Review

I have combination-oily skin which inclines towards more of an oily nature during this summer. So I always use Ubtans meant for oily skin these days to pamper my skin, and the first name that instantly clicked in your mind when you say Ubtan is the brand Forest Essentials. Forest Essentials or FE is well known for their various effective and natural Ubtans and the concept of “Luxurious Ayurveda”.

About Forest Essentialss Ubtan: Ubtans, made from finely ground herb, flower and root powders which are sundried and ground by hand, are used as cleansing scrubs or as face packs for deeper exfoliation. They are made into pastes by adding a small amount of the appropriate liquid, usually rosewater, milk or yoghurt; until the mixture achieves a smooth and creamy consistency. They contain Turmeric which is a strong anti-oxidant that prevents the ageing of the skin. It evens out skin tone and colour, and gives the skin a healthy glow. Fenugreek is deep-cleansing, highly nutritious in Vitamin B. In ancient Ayurveda, Dhataki flowers have their own significance. They were also used for fermentation while preparing Aasav and Arishta in place of yeast. Banyan Bark regenerates skin cells. Multani Mitti is deep-cleansing, purifying, detoxifying and mineral-rich. Its alkaline content corrects imbalances and neutralizes the skin tone.

My take on the product:

Forest Essentials Ubtans smell heavenly, and this Ubtan is also no exception. I generally mix this Ubtan with rose-water and apply it on my face, I love the exotic fragrance of this Ubtan that lingers on for sometime after washing your face. This ubtan is in finely milled powder form and very easy to work with. I let it stand on my face for 15-20 minutes and then wash it off. I love the squeaky clean feel post washing this Ubtan. This Ubtan also imparts a glow to my face and controls excess oil production. It also has done wonders in clearing my zits and also removes the dead skin layer which results in bright and clear complexion.


Pros of FE Multani Mitti Ubtan:

  1. Contains all the natural ingredients.
  2. Very good pack for oily skin.
  3. Keep skin soft, supple and bright.

Recommendation: I am in love with this Multani Mitti Ubtan- it is natural, it is safe and is super effective for my oily skin. Girls with oily skin should give it a shot, am sure they’ll love it.

I have never used any Forest Essentials products on my own. I got a facial done of it on my wedding though. I quite liked it. I think this multani mitti pack would a good thing to start my experience. But these are not readily available is the problem. The pictures are lovely


nausheen May 21, 2014 at 7:58 pm

Thanx Aayushi.


Shikha May 21, 2014 at 11:41 am

sounds good.. I prefer such dry ubtan packs they have more shelf life and irritate skin less


nausheen May 21, 2014 at 7:59 pm

True Shikha.


laks May 21, 2014 at 12:18 pm

Seems great, but this would dry out my skin :(


nausheen May 21, 2014 at 8:00 pm

Yes Laks, definitely not for you dear.


Manasi May 21, 2014 at 1:11 pm

The FE products are super expensive but the results are fantastic!!


nausheen May 21, 2014 at 8:02 pm

100% agree with you Vini.


E May 21, 2014 at 2:37 pm

Sounds awesome as I have combo skin too! Sadly, I’m not in India. Do you have any recommendations for home-made stuff? I have this awesome facepack recipe (coffee+honey+milk powder) but damn it’s yucky to put on so I don’t…do you have any other nicer homemade suggestions? Asking because a lot of stuff available in India might not be available in Aus.

Hi E !
Well the one i swear by is Besan (no idea what you call it in English) mixed with yogurt mixed with lime juice and turmerik powder. Put it into a thick paste and apply. Then just scrub it off after it dries


E May 21, 2014 at 3:30 pm

Ooo thank you! Hahaha chickpea flour? Who cares, I know what besan is! :P
I shall try this tomorrow! Any tips on how much of each quantity? Esp the dry ingredients?

On a side note, you really are amazing- always so helpful and so vibrant and vivacious!


nausheen May 21, 2014 at 8:04 pm

Yes E she really is.


Haani May 21, 2014 at 9:47 pm

Hey! I am not in India either but luckily I found forrest essential products on Amazon! They are priced between $20-$25 but it’s still a steal! :)


Shivi@COSMOCHICS May 21, 2014 at 3:02 pm

I will surely try this! sounds perfect for my oily skin! :)


nausheen May 21, 2014 at 8:04 pm

You’ll luv it Shivi.


Meghana May 21, 2014 at 8:16 pm

want to try FE, their moisturizers are tempting. But the quantity is too less for their price.


nausheen May 21, 2014 at 9:01 pm

Yes Megahna, that’s true :-(


Bonny May 21, 2014 at 10:39 pm
