SHADE:The serum is milky white in color.It quickly gets absorbed into the skin.

MY VIEWS:I have been using this serum for about a month.I was intrigued by the serum-cream combination.The formula is great for oily-combination skin as it is hydrating but doesn’t break out or make the face greasy.It provides the right amount of moisture needed for the face.The serum is very light weight and quickly gets absorbed into the skin.It has a fruit-chemical fragrance that I am not a fan off but it isn’t very much bothering.

I have used this for quite a while and believe that it is a great product as I no more have to smear my face with lots of skin care.Also,my face looks brighter and radiant.I use it once during night time.My small acne marks are gone and the pigmentation around the face has lightened.

RATING:5/5

RECOMMENDATION: Lotus Herbals has also come up with great formulas and this is another addition to the list.I like that they have redone the packaging which is great.The product is worth a try as it is reasonably priced as compared to other high end skincare brands.

032-crop
MY VIEWS: The texture of the scrub is smooth.It is quite runny in consistency and can easily spill.I find it quite runny.It should have been a little thick as I am not able to scrub the face easily.The presence of aloe vera makes it quite hydrating. The color of the scrub product is transparent base with brown-orange mixed type of scrubbing particles. The base is like a gel.
053-crop
The fragrance of the scrub is quite weird.I thought it would have strawberry and aloe vera fragrance to it but I think it is some sour fragrance that I personally don’t like.The granules aren’t too harsh on skin.I feel that they should have put more granules to make the scrub more effective as it hardly works on scrubbing and removing blackheads and all.The scrub lathers well and my face feels fresh after wash but I can’t consider this as a scrub.It did not cause any break-outs.
027
RATING: 2/5
RECOMMENDATION:I don’t find it anywhere near to be called a scrub as it lacks the amount of granules needed for exfoliation.However,it is soothing and freshens up the face.

Lotus Herbals tea tree & cinnamon face wash-Review

*Guest Post by Pallavi Bose*


I seldom use face wash. I am more of a scrub girl. But this face wash came on days when I was going through bad skin days. Use to hear this from mummy in childhood but it’s really true. If you skip meals or eat irregular it will show up on your face. So true. That’s what happened with me. I was going through mood swings and in this case the most victimized person is foods. So, it suffered. I was very irregular with my meals and thus my skin punished me. Got several bumps here and there.

And that’s how this face wash came in my life.

ABOUT:Specially formulated for oily skin, this absolute oil control face wash contains Tea Tree Oil, Cinnamon and Oak Bark extracts which remove excessive oil while regulating the Sebum (Oil) production in the skin. These special ingredients in this premium face wash decrease acne type lesions and combat free radicals leaving the skin fresh, clean and clearer.

How to use:

Squeeze a small quantity on wet palm of your hand. Apply on wet face with circular motions. Wash off. Use regularly mornings and evenings and follow with Lotus AcneGel for best results.

PRICE: Rs.145 for 20 grams

MY VIEWS:I love LOTUS for their fuss free packaging. Tube packaging is sometimes best. Easy to carry and use. This face wash also comes in tube packaging with medium in size. Once the flip top cap is shut the product does not dispenses out which makes it very easy for travel.

Lotus Tea Tree & Cinnamon Anti Acne Oil Control Face Wash is a colorless gel with runny consistency. It has tiny white granules in it which are quite gentle on skin. The presence of mild granules makes it quite perfect for daily use. It does not lather much and the smell is not at all overpowering. I message my skin for about 3-5 minutes with this face wash after which I finally rinse off. You will immediately face a cooling and fresh sensation after you have rinsed your face. Also, it does not dries out face as most of the face washes. The cooling sensation prevents zits and pimples to further grow. It reduces the size of pimples with constant usage and ultimately they vanish within 3-4 days. Also, this face wash keeps oil secretion in check preventing any more breakouts. So, a must purchase from my side for all the oily and problematic skinned ladies.

What impressed more is the ingredients list. It has the goodness of tea tree and cinnamon and oil bark extracts which are excellent in controlling oil which is the main reason for bad acnes and breakouts.

The quantity is sufficient for 1.5-2 months usage. Not bad at this price…what say????

RATING: 5/5

RECOMMENDATION:It is specifically designed for your bad skin days when most of the products don’t work or either overworks making it more problematic for you. So, this is a surely try from my side.

This sunscreen did not cause me any break out.My face looks matte and a compact over it fixes everything.However,one thing I would like to point out. During humid climate,if sometimes,I itch n my face,the sunscreen peels a bit which I totally dislike but that obvious as it is gel based and even slight rubbing will result in peeling though this sunscreen gets absorbed easily.

RATING:5/5

RECOMMENDATION:I highly recommend this sunscreen.It is affordable and a great product!!!
