I usually don’t review every skin care product that I use. My regular readers would know I blog about the ones that I either liked a lot or hated the most. There is no “average” take for me. This time I am reviewing Lotus Herbals White Glow Day Cream with SPF 25.
I was looking for a light-weight, non-sticky day cream with SPF. I could have chosen any sunblock for the same, but we all know how sunblocks make your skin look sticky, oily and dark. We don’t want to look like deep-fried bread. Do we? Lotus has a huge range of skincare products and of-late I have been trying a lot of other products from Lotus Herbals. My last pick was Lotus Nutranite Skin Renewal Nutritive Night Cream which turned out to be heavy, making my skin look oily. (Night creams should be light and non-oily). I was hence apprehensive about this day cream. However, the online reviews changed my mind and I decided to give it a try.
For starters, my skin type is a combination type with an oily T-point.
This 50 gm pack comes in a tough glass jar, sturdily packed and sealed. The pack says it is gel creme. Though the color is opaque and not transparent like gel, the light-weight gel like texture justifies the name.
The formula and its magic:
The brand claims the product has multiple fruit extract that together provides smoother, brighter and well-protected skin. Its SPF 25 can help you get ideal skin protection while in direct sunlight. It is gel-based cream – a unique formulation to help quick absorption and oil-free look. The fairness agents provide a brighter complexion while keeping you protected against the harsh effects of sunlight. It rejuvenates the skin from within and provides extra glow. This makes the skin look fresher and lighter than before. It protects the skin from UVA and UVB rays, and thus effectively prevent skin darkening.
What the brand claims-
- Works with your skin’s own repair system to undo the damage caused by pollutants and other environmental factors during the day
- Boosts skin resiliency
- Strengthens skin’s natural defense
- Restores firmness to your skin
- Promotes skin tissue regeneration
I was not looking for a fairness cream (I am comfortable with my complexion and no cream can make your fairer. ) I actually wanted an all-purpose day cream to vitalize and protect my skin. This one solved the purpose besides contributing to a brighter tone.
Being a gel creme, the texture is light and does not weight down on skin. It gets easily absorbed in skin. The best part is that my skin does not turn oily at all. I no more struggle with the shine and sticky look.
The brightening effect is far fetched and may not show results within a few days of use. But my skin feels smoother and fresher than before.
Lotus White Cream has a mild fragrance that does not irritate or cause a headache. (Thank God!). It suited me well and I am happy with the efficacy. I use it before applying tinted cream or makeup. One can use this cream standalone without fearing the skin’s greasiness.
The cream is NOT for-
-Treatment of pimples, acne
-Controlling oil on skin
-Reducing pore size
-Using as cold cream
-Does not leave skin greasy. For all skin type
-Suits all age group
-Very mild fragrance
-Has SPF 25 for good sun protection
-Can be used before makeup
-Skin feels fresh and revitalized
Priced at Rs 292 from Amazon, the 50 g quantity is totally worth the price.
Not paraben-free, though chemically tested and not harsh on skin.
Apart from this, I did not find any con in Lotus Herbals White Glow. The only other disadvantage I can think of is the 50 g pack not being travel-friendly. Hence You can buy a lightweight, sleek 30 g tube for your travel kit.
You can buy Lotus Herbals WhiteGlow Day Gel Creme from here. I would rate Lotus Herbals White Glow Day Cream a straight 4 on 5.
Repeat buy for me? YES
