Lotus Safe Sun Absolute Anti-tan Scrub

Pals,Today’s second post is also on a summer care product – Lotus Safe Sun Absolute Anti-tan Scrub.

What the product claims:

  • Wonderful exfoliating properties of strawberry seeds & walnut shells
  • Has turmeric that helps make the skin lighter

Active Ingredients:

Turmeric, Strawberry seed & Walnut shell.

Price: INR 195 for 100g. (Available on discount at most of the online shopping sites)

Shelf life: 3 yrs.


The scrub comes in a orangy mustard tube with a flip-open cap – making it hygienic to use and suitable for travel.

The way I see it:

One of my friends recommended this scrub to me, mentioning that she liked it. Bought this tube and its almost empty now – and I feel this is an average scrub.

The scrub is white in color and of creamy texture with orange & brown colored granules in it.

The best about this scrub is its granules – they are not abrasive and thus having a little dry skin, they never felt abrasive to me.

Upon application it gives a cool, mild tingling feeling which is definitely soothing in summers.

The scrub does not lather at all and I usually mix my scrub with my cleanser or face wash, so that I dont rub my skin too hard. There is no specific smell to the scrub and won’t bother any nose!

Coming to the anti-tan claim – its a total sham!

Let alone prevent tanning, does not even work even the lightest on existing tan. I am definitely disappointed since the whole product is based on the anti-tan job.

I still used this scrub intermittently just not to waste it and also since I liked the tingling sensation.

The ‘Yes’ factors:

  • Cooling and mild tingle
  • Non-abrasive granules
  • Tube packaging
  • Easily available

The ‘Nay’ factors:

  • Anti-tan claim – doesnt work

HnB ratings:

Availability: 5/5
Price: 4/5
Packaging : 4/5

Overall product: 2/5 (For the tingle and non-abrasive granules)

Repurchase? No! Unless someone shows me a photo-proof of its anti-tan job. 🙂

Recommend? Nope…
