My take on Lotus Herbals WHITEGLOW Skin Whitening & Brightening Nourishing Night Creme
The night cream comes in a silvery grey color glass tub jar with silver color screw cap. There is a white color lid under the silver color screw cap to prevent any kind of spillage. The jar is a bit heavy because of which despite being spill proof I cannot say it is travel friendly. I find it a little bulky and heavy so I do not feel comfortable in carrying it around. I always wish for a tube packaging for night creams but we hardly have tube packaging options when it comes to night creams:-).
Now coming to the texture of this night cream. At the very first glance you will surely think that the cream is very heavy as it has a thick consistency. But as I applied it on face I found it very light weight and non-greasy. Despite its thick texture it got absorbed by my skin pretty quickly and easily. It melted on my skin like a dream which I liked the most about this cream:-). The cream is non-sticky as well so I found it apt for my combination to oily skin. A little amount is enough to cover the whole face and neck so it would last me long. It has been almost a month since I am using this cream and still half of the jar is filled so I guess I would be using it for another month. It has a very mild flowery fragrance which will not at all bother sensitive nose.
Let us talk about its performance and effect on my skin now. As I have already mentioned that it has been almost a month now since I am using this cream and I have not noticed any whitening and lightening effect on my skin. My skin does feel soft, smooth, supple and hydrated with a healthy glow in the morning. All and all I can say this cream provides good moisturisation to my combination skin. I cannot comment on its effect on acne and pimple marks as I do not have any. I have not faced any breakout since I am using this one. But do not expect anything instant and miraculous from this product. With time you will surely see a healthy glow on your skin but do not expect any whitening or lightening effect from this cream. Moreover I felt dry skin beauties would require to use extra quantity of the cream to get proper hydration and moisturisation. So overall I can say that this cream is quite decent and a good pick for people with combination to oily skin.
