Lotus Herbals Whiteglow Oatmeal & Yogurt Skin Whitening Scrub Review

Hey Lovelies!!!

Today I am going to review Lotus Herbal White Glow Oatmeal And Yogurt Skin Whitening Scrub. Pheewww such a long name. This scrub stands apart in crowd of other scrubs, reason being the base ingredients generally other scrubs contains are walnut or apricot. Whereas this scrub contains oatmeal and yoghurt. Isn’t it unique?

Product Claims: This scrub is infused with oatmeal and yogurt enzymes that offer a gentle exfoliating action to remove dead skin cells. In addition, these enzymes help lift off dirt, impurities, oil, blackheads and whiteheads from the pores, leaving the skin clean, clear and spotless. They even out your skin tone, while preventing dull skin and discoloration.

Ingredients List: DM, Water, Glyceryl Monostearate, Glycerine, Isopropyl Myristate, Ployethylene granules, Avena Sativa Meal (Oatmeal) powder, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearic Acid, Light Liquid Paraffin, Yogurt powder, Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, 2-Phenoxyethanol, Methyl Paraben, Propyl Paraben, Alpha-Arbutin, Fragrance.

Price: 190 Rs

Wt: 100 gm

Shelf life: 3 years or 36 months

Online availability: Amazon, Paytm, Flipkart, Amazon, jabong, snapdeal, Nykaa etc

Directions as given on the Product: Gently apply the scrub on moistened skin with brisk circular movements on the face and neck. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Use twice a week for brighter and luminous skin.

Packaging: This scrub comes in a white color tube which looks very attractive with a flip cap. In front of the tube you can see the name of the scrub written in silver color. In back you can find all the information about scrub. The packaging is very hygienic and does not cause any spillage.

My opinion about product: This is my first product to review which belong to Lotus herbals, yes you read it right that this is the first review of Lotus herbal brand. When I read the ingredients i.e Oatmeal and yogurt, I wasn’t able to stop myself from buying it. Yogurt is known for brightening effect, whereas Oatmeal is known for exfoliation properties.

The scrub is milky white in color, which feels creamy and smooth to touch. If you simply see the scrub, you won’t be able to see any granules but while scrubbing you can feel them. These granules are coarser than walnut and apricot, that’s the reason you need to scrub only twice a week as it can be harsh on skin. Scrubbing needs to be done in light circular motions to avoid skin damage due to extensive pressure.

Whenever I scrub, I feel refreshed because it brightens my skin by removing dead skin, black heads & white heads etc. But I have a problem with this scrub that being a herbal product, it has too many ingredients in it. Overall it is a decent scrub, which will be liked by oily skin types but disliked by dry skin type as dries out the skin.

What I like about this product….

1. Brightens the skin and gives a subtle glow which lasts for few days, removes dullness, dirt, impurities, whiteheads etc.
2. Active ingredients are all natural oatmeal and yogurt.
3. It doesn't break me out.
4. Has a very mild and refreshing fragrance.
5. Price is quite reasonable.
6. Easily available online as well as in local market.
7. Unique oatmeal granules which is rarely found in any other scrub.

What I do not like about this product….

1. Contains Parabens.
2. Not suitable for dry skin type.
3. The granules can be harsh on skin.
