Hello People! ❤❤❤
How are you all doing? 🙂
So, In the previous article, I reviewed LOTUS HERBALS, Safe sun sunblock cream and today I am back with another review of a body lotion from the same brand. 😀
In Summers, not only our face but even our body gets damaged a lot by the harsh rays of the sun and regular body lotions do us no good, instead they make our skin even more oily! 🙁
But skipping on the moisturisation part does not do any good to the skin either!
Now-a-days, the cosmetic market is flooded with thousands of new products, designed to make our life easier. One thing that really pleases me is that ,today, most of the day care products have some SPF content in them, so we can easily skip the sunscreen sometimes. (Its too time consuming for a collage girl to get up, get ready, put on so much of these creams and lotions and rush to attend the classes.. 😛 )
So coming back to the review…. ❤
LOTUS HERBALS, WHITEGLOW SKIN WHITENING AND BRIGHTENING HAND AND BODY LOTION, SPF 25, PA++
I have been using this lotion since last Summer, and I think I am ready to review it! 😀

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
Okay, so I didn’t purchase it due to its whitening claims, ( I hate all products which claim to whiten skin.. Why can’t we just love the skin we are born with? 🙁 ), But over the years, I had developed a bad tan on my hands, legs and back, and wanted to get rid of it anyhow! Also, its SPF content attracted me a lot. 😀
Lets see how far it worked for me…
So, the lotion comes with this pump dispenser which is quite easy to use but not travel friendly at all! ( Once I travelled with it and had to put cello tapes around its mouth to stop the leakage, but it still leaked! 😛 😀 ) It is pure white in colour and has a medium to runny consistency which is more on the runny side..
The fragrance of the lotion is quite mild and pleasing and not at all overpowering (The typical LOTUS HERBALS WHITEGLOW range’s fragrance…) and it is definitely not going to hurt the Sensitive noses! ❤
I have used it for approximately six months or more, daily after shower in the morning! Though the consistency of the lotion is thin ,one needs to rub it for about 30 seconds before it gets completely absorbed into the skin, and once it does, it won’t even let you feel that you have applied something yet the skin would feel hydrated. ❤
Yes, it did make my skin soft and some what even toned, but it hasn’t removed much of the TAN, and certainly hasn’t whitened my skin. So, it definitely falls short on its Whitening and Brightening claims.
The SPF content of the lotion is good and has protected me quite a lot from getting tanned further. But don’t expect it to totally replace your Sunscreen. If you are going to remain outdoors for quite a large duration, especially during peak hours of the day, go for a Sunscreen. 🙂
LISTING DOWN PROS AND CONS:
1. Quite affordable and easily available. Buy it from here !
2. Removes tan to a small extent when used regularly.
3. Has SPF.
4. Prevents skin from tanning further.
1. No Whitening effect.
2. Has Brightening effect but it is more or less negligible.
3. Has paraben.
FINAL TAKE: Its an okayish product, neither too good nor too bad. Don’t go for it if you want serious whitening effect. It is good as a normal body lotion with SPF for summers. 🙂
Hope It Helps ❤
