I have oily sensitive skin which sometimes turn dry in winters i used this product for 2 weeks hoping that it might work but it did not, it leaves a white cast after application at first it feels like its completely absorbed into your skin but just after an hour it made my skin look oily greasy i might say and it also contains harmful chemicals like paraben not at all suitable for sensitive skin and you might think its working for you now but in the long run it will definitely do more harm then good to your skin.

Beauty industry runs on two magical words; Herbal and Ayurvedic. And not that all the brands around really stand with their promise of being Herbal or Ayurvedic. I have come across many such brands which claimed to be herbal but if you see the ingredients, they are more of chemicals and very fewer herbs. Lotus Herbals is one such brand that has more herbs and minimal chemicals, and so that it has become one of the most popular beauty product brands in India. Lotus Herbals Whiteglow Skin Whitening & Brightening Gel Crème SPF 25 PA+++ is a gel-based creme that comes in a jar like pack and has screw lid. It is extremely useful for the dull dry and damaged skin due to internal and external factors like lack of sleep, dehydration, being out in the sun for a long time, etc. Lotus Herbals Whiteglow Skin Whitening & Brightening Gel Crème SPF 25 PA+++ is definitely a decent solution for many such skin problems. It repairs damaged cells and enhances the skin from within. After using it regularly for over a month I can see some radiance on my face. Dark circles have lightened a lot and skin looks soft and supple. It contains SPF 25 and protects my skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays while being out in the sun. It creates a kind of shield against dust and pollutants and so gives complete protection against external factors. It needs minimal efforts to get absorbed in the skin. just a few strokes of massage and it's done. It keeps skin fresh for a long time by controlling oil. Cons - The packaging is unhygienic because you have to dip your fingers into the cream to take out the cream from the jar. Washing hands before every use can make this process simpler though. The jar like packaging makes it difficult to carry while traveling.

Just a good moisturizer

Lotus brand has come into the lime light of beauty industry these days. Usually I prefer the brands to which I am familiar with. I got good reviews about lotus products and thought of trying it. Lotus Herbals Whiteglow Skin Whitening & Brightening Gel Crème SPF 25 PA+++ contains extracts of Grape, Mulberry, Saxifrage Extracts and Milk Enzymes that claim to lighten dark spots, whiten skin tone, and brighten the skin. It comes in a translucent glass jar. It has a silver screw type lid. The packaging looks classy with white and silver color combination. The jar is bulky and makes it inconvenient to carry it in a bag. I think lotus should improve on their packaging as it is unhygienic to use a creme in jar where we are supposed to put in our fingers for each use. The price is affordable and similar to other brand. The product has the description gel creme in its title but it is not completely gel type. It is inbetween gel and a cream consistency. It has a good fragrance. The creme is white in color. The texture is soft and smooth. It gets absorbed in the skin within minutes. It doesn't cast a white patchy layer over skin. It controls oils and keeps skin hydrated. People with dry skin should do a patch test before using, to make sure it doesn't give a stretchy effect on their skin. It could be used daily when leaving out for a professional work. As it contains SPF 25, it protects the skin from harmful uv rays. Apply the cream on your face and neck twice a day. It doesn't lighten dark spots. It doesn't improve the uneven tone. It makes the skin smooth on regular usage. It doesn't clog pores and doesn't cause any breakouts. It does the work of a good moisturizer hydrating the skin and making it soft. But doesn't lighten or whiten the skin tone as it claimed.

Moisturizes but does not brighten your skin
4.1/5

PROS

Attractive packaging

Contains SPF

Absorbed quickly

Gives a dewy effect

Does not leave a white cast

Controls oil secretion in the T-zone

CONS

Does not whiten and brighten the skin

Might be very matte for dry skin


Lotus Herbals Whiteglow Skin Whitening & Brightening Gel Crème SPF 25 PA+++ comes in a glass jar, which gives a high-end product feel. The texture is between a gel and a cream, which is perfect for both dry and oily skin types. The cream gets easily absorbed within 5-6 seconds.

When I purchased this day cream, I was very curious to see how it will work. The whole package itself looked very promising. To be honest, I was expecting the cream to look more like a gel because it states to be gel-cream based. But then, after applying, I didn’t bother as it is very light in texture and gets absorbed quickly.

In the morning, I apply the cream all over my face after I wash it. I simply take a little more than a pea-sized amount and spread it all over. I wait it out for like half a minute and then start wearing my kajal and shaping my eyebrows. After that, I’m pretty much done.

I have combination skin, so my T-zone becomes very oily by the end of the day. I started using Lotus Herbals Whiteglow Skin Whitening & Brightening Gel Crème SPF 25 PA+++ two and a half months back. I like how the cream gives me a dewy effect without leaving any white cast. I have also noticed that my T-zone area is much less oily now.

The drawback of this cream is that though it has been a while since I started using this cream, I have not seen any difference in my skin tone. It’s actually quite disappointing because the cream claims to do so in 7 days.

I will say that despite the “whitening and brightening” claim not coming true, it is a good moisturizing cream for combination skin.

Not for dry skin

PROS

Smells nice

CONS

Not for dry skin

Expensive


Lotus Herbals Whiteglow Skin Whitening & Brightening Gel Crème SPF 25 PA+++ made my skin very dry and stretchy. It does not suit my dry skin. I purchased it because it states that it’s for all skin types, but it turned out to be the opposite.

My skin is softer and healthier

PROS

Makes the skin soft

Blends easily

Controls oiliness

Contains SPF

Absorbed quickly

Improves skin structure

CONS

Contains parabens


Another skin lightening cream, but I ended up buying anyway (guilty). After three months of use, I can state that this is among the very few day creams that suit me so well. My skin is very oily, and I hesitate to use any sort of moisturizer on my skin because it makes it more oily. But this Lotus Herbals Whiteglow Skin Whitening & Brightening Gel Crème blends into my skin so well without making it feel oily.

Over these three months, I see the difference in the structure of my skin. It feels softer and healthier. I was pretty impressed with the formulation as well until I saw that it contains parabens. Other than that, I have no problem with this day cream.

Makes my skin glow
3.8/5

PROS

Makes the skin glow

Pleasant smell

Good for oily skin

Soft

CONS

Not travel-friendly

Takes time to show results

Does not brighten skin


I have very oily and sensitive skin and have tried so many brands, but this gel creme stands out. It makes my skin glow from within. It did take a little time to show results, but the wait was definitely worth it.
