Lotus Herbals WhiteGlow Oatmeal & Yogurt Skin Whitening Scrub Review

Lotus Herbals WhiteGlow Oatmeal & Yogurt Skin Whitening Scrub Review

Guest Post by Barisha

Hello darlingzzz :D

Last year Lotus herbals launched their skin care range called “Lotus white glow range”

Face wash, scrub, cream, emulsion, serum and mask are part of this series. Somehow I really don’t like skin whitening products because most of them are drying in nature. Once I used Olay cream and it broke me out crazily :( but still the packaging, reviews on many blogs attracted me a lot and I have to try something from this range :p so I picked this white glow scrub and here is my experience and detailed review on it.

Product description:
WHITEGLOW Oatmeal & Yogurt Skin Whitening Scrub exfoliates the skin gently, removes dirt, impurities, whiteheads and blackheads leaving your skin brighter and healthier with a shining glow. The gentle exfoliating action works on skin discoloration, dull and uneven skin tones and softens the skin giving you a firmer skin texture. Oatmeal exfoliates gently, restores the natural moisture balance of skin and yogurt moisturizes and lightens the skin reducing imperfections giving you silky, smooth and brighter skin.

Key Ingredients: Oatmeal and milk yogurt

Usage Directions: Gently apply the scrub on moistened skin with brisk circular movement on the face and neck. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Use twice a week for brighter skin. Follow with yogurt radiance mask for best results.

Price and Quantity:145 for 100gm

Shelf life: 36 months

My Experience with Lotus Herbals WhiteGlow Oatmeal & Yogurt Skin Whitening Scrub:

Packaging: The product comes in a pretty white tube with a metallic cap but this tube is not at all travel friendly as the cap is loose and the tube tends to break easily in case if it fell down.

Colour, Consistency and Fragrance: This scrub is creamy white in colour and thick in consistency. It has a very artificial smell which is very disturbing for my sensitive nose.

How it works:
I have a love and hate relationship with Lotus Herbals. Some of their products (Berry Berry scrub and 4-1 sunscreen)suits me well but some make my skin dry (there face packs including fruit pack which is meant for dry skin). Okay let me concentrate on this product. I didn't have a good experience with this product. This scrub just adds a lil glow to my skin after application which lasts hardly for 10 minutes. I am using this scrub regularly twice a week for more than two months to see the effect but to be frank it does nothing to my skin. I did not expect any whitening and brightening results from this scrub because I know nothing can change our original skin color apart from some heavy bleach like kojic acid and hydroquinone. It did not help me in removing acne scars, black heads and white heads. Wanna know more? It is harsh on my sensitive skin! :( but the only good thing about the product is it does not dry our my skin or broke me out. Overall, this is an average-good scrub for normal-dry skin types. If you're skin is skin is extra sensitive, then do not go for this.

Pros of Lotus Herbals WhiteGlow Oatmeal & Yogurt Skin Whitening Scrub:

  • Affordable
  • Available easily
  • Its not drying; hence dry skins will love it
  • Does the exfoliation part well
  • Adds a little glow to the face after usage
    Does not break me out
  • Works good as a foot scrub :p

I am really sorry I cant think of any other pros :(

Cons of Lotus Herbals WhiteGlow Oatmeal & Yogurt Skin Whitening Scrub:

  • It claims too many things but delivers nothing
  • It’s not at all a gentle product for sensitive skin types.
  • Smell bad and artificial.
  • Tube breaks easily and not travel friendly
  • Contains a big list of chemicals.
  •  Pareben is present. How could Lotus herbals says it’s a herbal product? :O

Makeup and Beauty Home Rating: 2/5 (Because it is working well as a foot scrub :p)

Recommendation: If you have sensitive nose cum sensitive skin then please don’t waste your money on this product.:( However  normal-dry skinned people may find this scrub good on their skin because it isn't drying and moreover, it doesn't break out skin.
