A few months ago, when I went for shopping to my local grocery store I found a pretty looking bottle of body lotion. It was a beautiful white bottle with colorful graphics on it. It was Lotus herbals White Glow hand & body lotion. My body lotion was about to finish. So, I picked it and added it to my cart.
Product description :
It is a technologically advanced formulation that provides triple action on skin- LIGHTENING, WHITENING & BRIGHTENING with the help of rare fruit & proven plant extracts that penetrate deep into the skin to provide enduring action. The result, your skin looks soft, fair & radiant.
How to use :
After shower, apply liberally all over the body. It is best to use on damp skin. Focus on dry areas such as elbows, heels and knees.
How it works :
- LIGHTENS : It lightens skin tone by reducing uneven pigmentation.
- WHITENS : It unveils visibly fairer skin by reducing dark spots.
- BRIGHTENS : It enhances skin’s radiance naturally.
Active ingredients :
Liquorice, Green tea and Grape extracts.
Shelf life :
INR 295 (for 300 ml of product).
This lotion comes in a beautiful white opaque bottle which has a pump dispenser. The pump has open-close mechanism, i.e. it can be opened or closed by turning the pump sideways. This mechanism makes the bottle travel friendly.
Graphics on the bottle are quite colorful, still the bottle looks classy. It looks very pretty sitting on your dresser.
My take on the product :
The lotion is pure white in colour. Consistency is slightly on the runny side. But the pump efficiently controls the amount of product coming out.
Lotion has very pleasant floral fruity scent. It spreads on skin very easily. Initially it leaves a white cast on skin, but that subsides within a few minutes.
A major plus point of the lotion is that it has in-built SPF. It does not leave an oily film on skin and is best suited for summers. However, in summer it makes me sweat; so I use it in winters. My body skin type is Normal which is only slightly dry in winters. So I don’t need heavy moisturiser. But it will not be sufficient for people with very dry skin.
It claims soft, fair & radiant skin and visible results within 7 days of regular use. It made my skin soft but I can’t say much about fairness claim. It prevents tanning to some extent but didn’t make me any fairer. Well…..I didn’t buy it for whitening action either.
- Pleasant floral fruity scent.
- Very light texture.
- Easily spreads and gets absorbed fast.
- Makes skin soft.
- Pocket friendly.
- SPF 25 is a major plus point.
- Pretty packaging.
- Pump mechanism is very convenient and hygienic.
- Travel friendly.
- Contains liquid paraffin which is a kind of mineral oil.
- Contains parabens.
- Bulky bottle.
- Does not live up to the claim of fair skin. (Besides your skin colour is controlled by your DNA and not by any lotion or potion.)
Over all verdict :
It’s a nice body lotion with SPF. It makes skin soft. But don’t fall for fairness claim.
Will I repurchase :
Of course I will. Until I find something better than this or my habit of trying new things gets the best of me…..
Thanks for reading.
Will soon be back with another review. Until then. …take care.
