Forest Essentials Facial Ubtan Multani Mitti

I grew up in a household where multani mitti was an integral part of hair and skin care. My mother and grandmother never let me use shampoo. I always washed my hair with a concoction of multani mitti with yogurt and sometimes with reetha-amla. Whenever I got a zit on, my mother would make a quick lep of multani mitti with some yogurt or rosewater.

I missed these home made packs and concoctions for my care regime. One day I came across this Facial Ubtan Multani Mitti by Forest Essentials and thought to give it a try as it brought back the golden memories of days back at mommy's place. This also happens to be the first product that I tried from Forest Essentials. I am very excited to share my views with you all.

My Experience:

The Forest Essentials Facial Ubtan Multani Mitti is a dry, powdered mixture. It comes in a plastic jar secured with a white lid and a golden screw cap, which makes the packaging look quite traditional and classy. The ubtan smells very earthy and refreshing. It is not a very finely powdered mixture but has bits of coarse particles that also help when used for gentle scrubbing. It is made up from natural ingredients, like multani mitti, neem, turmeric, etc. that have been known for centuries to cure and care for skin, especially acne prone skin. I used it with rose water initially but lately I am enjoying using it with yoghurt.

When I used it for the first time, I did a patch test and after that used it on my face as I have very sensitive skin. Initially, I used it once a week for 2 weeks, then twice a week for ~2 weeks, and now every alternate day. After I am done cleansing my skin, I apply this ubtan on my face and wait until it dries, usually 15-20 minutes. After that I wash it off with water by gently scrubbing as I really like exfoliating with them. After cleaning with water, I pat dry my face with a clean towel and follow by my holy grail serum and then generously moisturising my face.

It has really improved the texture of my skin and has reduced the occurrence of acnes. At times, I also use it as spot treatment for acne. I just apply it directly on the acne and let it sit there the whole day and it dries up the acne by the end of the day.

As I have combination skin, I noticed it also helps in controlling oiliness on my skin, but it might be drying for people with dry skin.

What I like about Forest Essentials Facial Ubtan Multani Mitti:

  • The fact that it is made from natural ingredients.
  • Helps in reducing acne.
  • Makes skin squeaky clean, soft and glowy.
  • Good for oily skin as it is quite drying.
  • Smells very earthy and refreshing.
  • Helps in removing tan also.
  • Does not irritate my sensitive skin.
  • Has coase particles, so can also be used as an exfoliator if you are in a hurry.
  • A little goes a long way.

What I don't like about Forest Essentials Facial Ubtan Multani Mitti:

  • The only thing that I don't like is availability. It can be an issue as it's not something that if you run out you can just go out and bring another jar.
  • Slightly pricey, but for all the great things it does to my skin, I don't mind the price part.

OVERALL, it is a very good and effective skin care product that I am loving. Surely, it will be a part of my skincare for a long time. πŸ™‚
