Today I am going to review Lotus WhiteGlow Skin Whitening and Brightening Hand and Body Lotion.
Price: 295/- for 300ml
Lotus WhiteGlow Skin Whitening and Brightening Hand and Body Lotion is a technologically advanced formulation that provides triple action on skin – Lightening, Whitening and Brightening with the help of rare fruit & proven plant extracts that penetrate deep into the skin to provide enduring action. The result, your skin looks soft, fair and radiant.
Lightens: It lightens skin’s tone by reducing uneven pigmentation.
Whitens: It unveils visibly fairer skin by reducing dark spots.
Brightens: It enhances skin’s radiance naturally.
I was never so keen with whitening body lotion, till Lotus WhiteGlow Skin Whitening and Brightening Hand and Body Lotion drew my attention. I was quite tempted to buy it after especially knowing the active ingredients present in it.
Active Ingredients: Liquorice, Green tea and Grape Extracts.
Skin Benefits and Significance of these active ingredients are:
Liquorice :- Licorice (also spelled liquorice) is an extract from the root of the licorice plant. It has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties which help in treating eczema and fighting acne. Licorice also contains anti-oxidants, which help protect your skin from sun damage It is an effective moisturizer for the skin which is good for dry hands and soothes skin. It also helps skin lightening and whitening
Green Tea :- Green tea protects against sun damage, combat signs of aging, treat inflammatory skin conditions and soothe cuts and sunburns.
Grape:- Grapes are rich in vitamins, fruit acids, minerals and antioxidants that inhibit skin aging. It protects skin cells against free radicals, which are responsible for the irregularities in our skin and helps in maintaining the natural elasticity and skin moisture which results is soft and smooth skin.
It comes in a white colored, opaque plastic bottle. It has a pump dispenser. The lotion is in medium consistency and completely white in color. The packaging is hygienic and has a pump lock which makes it travel friendly. The fragrance of the lotion is completely of grapes and it feels very refreshing while applying it on my body. It absorbs very quickly, within seconds – which is also a very good attribute of this lotion. It contains SPF 25 and PA+++ which protects your skin from further tanning. The bottle, however is very bulky and difficult to carry around.
The best part of this lotion is that, even after applying this lotion – you won’t feel greasy for hours at a stretch and at the same time your body gets ample moisture! Isn’t it amazing? Once you apply it on your skin, your skin gets hydrated and smooth & supple to touch. Apply it right after bath or anytime in a day, it won’t feel greasy, absorb within seconds and will provide you moisture!! You need very less amount to hydrate and moisturize your body, in comparison with other body moisturizers. It keeps my body moisturized for a long time, for about more than 8 hours. It contains essential ingredients like Glycerin – which helps keep my skin moisturized.
Results: After using it for about it for 2 months, I realized that it had definitely reduced the tan on my hands and feet, not a significant difference but still it did. However, there was no whitening effect to be observed even after I used it for 2 months. It is loaded with chemicals like parabens.
It has got a shelf life of about 3 years. I did not feel that this is my HG body lotion. Right now I am using Nivea Whitening Body Lotion – will be reviewing it soon.
