Lotus products have been quite popular in the market owing to their reputation and great results. Recently they have launched their WHITEGLOW RANGE which promises to bring about a change in one’s complexion, making the skin white and glowing. This particular one that I will be reviewing today is the Lotus Herbals Active Skin Whitening And Oil Control Face Wash designed for oily skin which becomes quite problematic to deal with – let’s see if it lives up to the claims made by it.

My Experience with Lotus Herbals Active Skin Whitening and Oil Control Face Wash
PACKING – the packing is really attractive – it’s a white colored tube with a silver cap that makes the tube a pretty one. It has grapes drawn on it with the lotus logo. Recently I see grapes drawn on a lot of fairness creams and face washes.
TEXTURE AND CONSISTENCY the face wash is extremely runny and it looks like a runny gel .if you examine it closely in daylight it has a pearly sheen to it and you can see small glittery particles in it. Pretty! Pretty!
FRAGRANCE a fruity flowery fragrance can be observed in this face wash that doesn’t linger on after you are done washing the face.
EXPERIENCE – I personally have normal skin so my skin doesn’t really get very oily but I bought this face wash for those summer days when every normal skin person also observes that they start having an oily T-zone. I wanted something that could keep my face free from the teeny weeny oil that might reappear in summers. The face wash didn’t lather a lot but still, it did a decent job at cleaning the oil and dirt away. I like face washes that produce lather but still if the face wash cleanses well then I’m fine by it. The gel is runny due to which it spreads well and the consistency is quite thin. After washing it off the face isn’t really squeaky clean which is something that I have noticed in all the gel face washes? Even after washing it off I felt as if there was still some product on my face. Once I wipe my face it appears to be just fine.
It cleaned my face and my skin appeared to be fine even without a moisturizer. However, with regular use, it did make my skin a bit stretchy so I would advise normal skin people to go with a light moisturizer or lotion to follow this face wash. I can’t really say whether it did make my skin fair but yes I do see a visible improvement right after I wash my face. Skin does appear to be a bit brighter than usual. But that’s just right after the face wash.

Well overall I think it works as a good face wash especially for oily skin people or people who get an oily T-zone in summer but I’m going to try something else for the fairness claim!Well overall I think it works as a good face wash especially for oily skin people or people who get an oily T-zone in summer but I’m going to try something else for the fairness claim!
