I made a visit to the beauty shop at Khar a week ago and I got a few bags loaded with hair products, lotions, shower gels and make up goodies. I saw this new launch at the Lotus counter because the ladies were all over it and the hoarding flashed about this new launch. Being the super shopaholic that I am, I had to get it. Let me tell you that this is the best daily tinted creme that I have used till date. This totally beats all the BB and CC creams that I have. Scroll down to know more about this beauty.
Lotus Xpress Glow 10-in-1 Daily Beauty Creme SPF-25 is the ultimate hydrating treatment based creme which gives a semi matte flawless finish and keeps skin hydrated for long.
Rs 299 for 30g
My Experience with Lotus Xpress Glow 10-in-1 Daily Beauty Creme SPF 25:
When all the other drugstore brands were up with their BB creams, CC creams and tinted moisturisers, how could lotus stay back in the race? They came out with a bang and I have to say that they totally nailed it. Here I introduce my latest love, this daily creme from Lotus.
The creme comes in a hot pink packaging paired up with bright sunny yellow, which makes it look damn gorgeous and attractive. Imagine yourself going to a store, wanting to pick a daily tinted creme and all these from different brands would be arranged together. Wouldn’t this pink hottie be the first one to catch your attention? Hence, awesome packaging and how could I not like pink!
The creme comes in 3 shades and I picked the royal pearl shade. The creme is tiny and very much travel friendly. The quantity is very much similar to what the other brands offer. It claims to be a 10-in-1 creme, but I think it is unnecessarily elaborated because the benefits mentioned could have been combined together, but instead they separated it to 10 point. I think it covers pimples, hides imperfections, covers blemishes and dark spots could have been just been one point, shouldn’t it?
Anyways, the nozzle dispenses a very good amount, I just spot it on my face and then blend it with the fingers. Be careful with the quantity because it can make you look like casper. The creme blends very nicely on my skin. It is very gentle on the skin and the best part is that it does not feel heavy at all on the skin, like the Lakme one.
I was actually amazed to see the results. It gave a very nice light to medium coverage on my face, covering the imperfections and pimple marks not completely, but to a good extent. It has a light floral scent to it, which is pleasing to the nose. It does work very much like a CC cream because it did even out my skin tone and corrected the complexion very well. A dose of brightness and freshness was added to my face and skin looked very lively. It actually did make my skin appear fairer, say by 2 tones.
It did not clog my pores nor did it accentuate the dry patches on my skin, which makes it suitable for all skin types. I have oily skin and I am using this since a week and this product does not break me out. In fact, it hydrates my skin for the entire day and has SPF 25 too, which is a plus point for the coming winter. I can very well skip the sunscreen and moisturiser, and use instead.
It gave my skin an amazingly glow and I just cannot stop admiring myself every day. It might look a little oily, but it can be sealed with a compact. I do not use a compact because my skin is not very oily. It covered my dark circles to a very good extent. It can rightly be called the “instant beautifier”, since it exactly works like the editing app on our phones.
It lasts for say 7-8 hours in the present climate and might limit to 6 hours on the hot days, but a primer can make it live longer. What I loved is that it does not oxidise at any point. The skin glows and maintains the natural skin tone, through out the day. I am in love with this and all of you have to get this, it will leave you totally impressed.

Yes, absolutely. I am going to have this always in my vanity because I have tried almost all the BB and CC creams available widely and have to say without any doubt, that this proved to the best and the perfect one for me. All of you have to try this and you will thank me for it.
