Review: Forest Essentials Body Cream Vitamin E.

I sin on a regular basis. I do not moisturize. I never have. Forget daily, I doubt if I ever have moisturized monthly. So, one of my resolutions, which I made in January, comes into play now, as winter begins. I have begun moisturizing whenever my brain reminds me to. I have scruffy, tough elbows and knees which need some extra tender love and care. My ankles are no less. My quest to find a good moisturizer began in October, when I was visiting my brother. I wanted something smooth and silky. Something that was like water; hydrating, refreshing and extremely good for the skin. I think I may have found it.

By the way, I am on a mission to make my blog a little better. I find that I actually just look at some specific things when I read other blogs myself. So, I aim to make this easier for you and just focus on my products. My stories will be limited to the introduction. Let me get on with it.

PACKAGING: It is packed in a round, tough plastic container with a golden lid on top. It is then put inside a cardboard box, as you can probably tell from the photos. 

FRAGRANCE: Smells like a rich, frothy glass of warm milk. Technically, it smells like vitamin E. It is quite mild and yet quite rich. It also, strangely, reminds me of something from my childhood. I cannot exactly place like what.

COLOUR: Creamy off-white.
