Like I said earlier, since my skin is combination type, I keep experimenting on products in order to get the perfect product for my skin. I heard a lot about Lotus Herbals range in skin brightening online. I was reluctant to try it as none of my friends are using it. So, I thought let me try based on the reviews I found online. There are many products in the skin whitening and brightening range from Cleanser to Serum. Today, I am going to review about Lotus Herbals White Glow Skin Whitening & Brightening Gel Crème.
The packaging is neat with a tub made of glass but the lid is not that strong – I think it is made of cheap material – the steel coating wears off eventually and looks shabby. The glass tub is quite heavy and not that feasible to carry in handbags.
The cream is very smooth and light. It spreads evenly all over the face and gives instant brightening to the face(TRUE..). The glow is astonishing but for a while. After some time, face gets slightly oily and I keep applying powder on top to stay away from greasy skin. Initially I had 1 or 2 breakouts, not sure if it is because of this creme, later there were no break outs. When I apply this cream, my skin feels soft and super plump.
But if we apply too much of the cream – we need to keep massaging our face until all the cream is absorbed in. The smell is mild flora fragrance. I have heard many of friends say that Lotus Herbals WhiteGlow Skin Whitening & Brightening Gel Crème is a cheap, low quality product and I really wanted to try it.. Now that I have tried, I feel that Lotus Herbals WhiteGlow Skin Whitening & Brightening Gel Crème is a good product like another quality cream in the market.
WHAT I LIKE:
1) The smell is flora fragrance – not to strong and sensitive
2) The cream texture is very smooth and light weight – looks like water based
3) Give even application all over the face suited for Combination Skin
4) Gets absorbed quickly when the right amount of the cream is applied on the skin
5) Skin brightens instantly and feels soft.
6) Has Spf 25
WHAT I DISLIKE:
1) The packaging is ok.. not great – I wish the tub was light weight suitable for handbags and the lid could have been a good quality one.
2) Price is a bit too high I guess
3) Has parabens 🙁
