Today’s review is on Lotus Whiteglow Oatmeal & Yoghurt Whitening Scub.
I share a love-hate relationship with Lotus products like its with Lakme.
I was looking for a scrub that does not contain walnut shell for a scrub.. Its become so boring you know!
I started using my own DIY gel scrub for sometime… but then I always wanted a ready-to-use product when in a hurry or travelling.
That is when I picked up this scrub from the Lotus Whiteglow scrub.
Price: INR 165
Shelf life: 3 yrs.
Ingredients: Check out the below pic.
Screw-on cap on a white tube. Simple yet classy packaging. I find it lovely in my bathroom closet.. 🙂
What the product claims:
The way I see it:
I was so much in love with oatmeal granules in my DIY Gel Scrub..this continued with this product also.
The product is thick & creamy in texture and bright white in color.
Yoghurt is known for skin lightening & Oatmeal for its moisturising properties.
The fragrance is mild..nothing of yoghurt or oatmeal though… it is soothing & would not bother sensitive noses for sure.
The granules are bigger and do the scrubbing job perfectly.. though sensitive skins may find it a little harsh.
For my normal-dry skin, I scrub twice a week & I am satisfied with the scrub from these granules.
I apply the scrub on moist skin, massage it a little for a minute or so, then leave it on for 3-5 minutes as such.
Then with wet hands & some face wash/cleanser, I massage the scrub a little more on the face & neck to get the actual job done. This way I get some massaging done & also no harsh rubbing on the skin too.
There is no whitening as claimed by the product.. I never expected too.
The skin feels soft and is not stretchy post usage. With regular usage I am sure it can get rid of blackheads& whiteheads too.
I can see that the dry flaky skin around my nose is getting better with usage.
Overall, a nice scrub from Lotus, a welcoming change from the generic walnut shell granules, suitable for all skin types.It might be a little harsh for sensitive skin.
The ‘Yes’ factors:
- Easily available
- Decent pricing
