Lotus Herbals 3 Face Packs Review:
I have to admit I am spending a lot these days and specially on face packs, clays, muds, and masks. I love the clay packs and these days I am also loving the hydrating kind of masks which do not dry but we need to keep them on for a while for the toning effect to occur. Since I was a teenager I am into clay masks that dry out and thus absorb execss oil from skin and refine pores and there by prevent pimples and clogged pores. Indians love multani mitti which is still so affordable but now various top brands have commercialised our multani miiti and made them available in convenient packs in ready to use wet form. Most packs these days I believe have multani mitti as their base clubbed with a couple more ingredients for the desired effect suited to various skin types. Here are some effective products.
Lotus Herbals Marinyouth: Marine restructuring and anti ageing face mask:
- All skin types; 20 minutes to firmer skin
- Price Rs 185 for 120 grams
- What the pack says: Thalasso in Greek means sea. Seaweed , sea algae and sea lichen contain a vast wealth of natural minerals, salts and trace elements that act as anti ageing, firming and restructuring agents on facial skin.

What I like about the Lotus Herbals Marinyouth Face mask:
- The colour: a very pretty muddy blue
- The texture: it’s like soft clay
- The claims: skin tightening
- The fact that it does not dry but I still feel it is mud based
- Leaves my face fresh and clarified
- The price: Rs 185 is decent for a quality face mask that claims anti-ageing
- Since it stays damp it cools my skin I feel
- Clay like smell
Not so good factors about the Lotus Herbals Marinyouth Face mask:
- It leaves some deposit on the face
- It leaves some blue colour on my face if I don’t rinse it well
- We will need a thick coat of this product to actually feel its working
- I recommend it for ppl with oily to combi skin.

Rating 4 on 5
I bought this product when I broke out long back. I used it religiously. It obviously has the benefits of oil absorption and thus reduces pimples.I have faith in this product even now and try to incorporate it once a fortnight. I would recommend it to everybody with oily skin as it mattifies skin and reduces occurrence of new pimples or clogged pores. I like its fresh teatree smell and teatree really works for skin eruptions. For everyone with skin prone to acne. This product is not recommended for dry skin at all. Its over all a good product and brightens skin and helps fade away pimple spots and pigmentation over time. May cause mild tingling.
PS: I recommend these face masks and Lotus Herbals totally. I have been using lotus herbals for three years now. All these packs do lighten and brighten skin feel and help remove tan with usage over a month. You can pick up the pack according what you aim at. People with very sensitive or dry skin can avoid the tea tree and clay white though.
