These natural ingredients help in regulating the production of melanin in your skin. They also moisturize and hydrate your skin, giving it an even tone. SPF 25. Enriched with SPF 25, this cream works as a protective barrier for your skin against harmful UV rays.
My Experience with Lotus Herbals Professional Phyto-Rx Whitening and Brightening Creme:
This Lotus creme comes in a big white box with the tub inside. The box has all the details related to the product on it. The tub is a medium-sized one with see-through packaging. The creme comes in a glass tub. I wouldn’t call this a travel-friendly option because it is a glass tub and can break anytime, also it is pretty heavy. On the other hand, it also becomes a bit inconvenient to dip the fingers every time to take the product out, so I wish they kept a spatula inside.
The gel creme is off-white colored with a very pleasant smell. It does not smell artificial at all, rather it has a very relaxing scent which stays for a while on the skin. The day cream is considerably less heavy compared to the night cream. The cream has a gel-like consistency which is easy to massage on the skin. It gets massaged easily into my skin, but causes sweating upon application, though it settles down after a while. It gets absorbed very quickly into my skin leaving a bit of sheen on the skin.
The day cream feels a bit heavy on the skin. It gets absorbed into the skin well after a massage yet it leaves a greasy sheen behind which wouldn’t look good on oily skin. It did cause breakouts on my skin. My skin looks fresh, glowing and healthy the moment I apply it. It also contains SPF 25. It fades the dark spots and evens out skin tone to a good extent, but I should mention that the night cream from this range does a better job than this one. It does everything that you expect a day cream to do, but it did not fulfill the “whitening” cream. It brightened my skin to some extent, but this day cream cannot make you fair. It just evens out the skin tone revealing a radiant complexion.
