Hello all, how are you all doing? I’m back after the ‘Durga puja break’ though we have another important festival Lakshmi puja coming up in few days. I hope you all have enjoyed the puja as much as I did. Soon we will be celebrating Diwali in few days. So you see, we have an array of festival lined up for the season. Today I’ll be reviewing a face pack from one of my favourite brand Lotus Herbals. It is a skin whitening pack consisting of black clay.
Read on to know if this face pack is worth buying:
Price: INR 275 for 120g
Ingredients: Contains Methyl Paraben and Proplyl Paraben
What the Product Claims: Black Clay: Very rich in minerals and silica, helps to brighten facial complexion.
Bearberry Extract: Rich in Arbutin, helps to lighten complexion.
Liquorice Extract: Lighten facial complexion.
Method of Use: Wash your face with mild soap and blot dry. Apply a generous amount of Claywhite on face and neck, leaving eyes. Relax till completely dry. Rinse with fresh water. Follow with ‘Lotus Herbals Fairgel’.
My Take on the Product: The product comes in a cream-colored tube with a sturdy flip cap. The packaging is very user-friendly like every other products from the house of Lotus Herbals.
The face pack has texture like that of clay since it is a black clay face pack. The face pack is easy to apply and spreads evenly though the consistency is on the thicker side. I like the color of the face pack, it is bluish grey in color and looks very different from other face packs I use, which are usually white, pink or yellowish :p.
I don’t like the smell of this face pack and it smells somewhat like ‘Lacto Calamine’. I am using this face pack for over three months now but I haven’t seen any whitening effect on my skin yet. This face pack has a mixed effect on my skin, sometimes it works fine in a row of 2-3 uses and sometimes it gives me breakouts within a few hours of using it.
I also feel a mild tingling sensation with the face pack on. Overall I feel this product is over priced and do not completely justifies what it claims to….
Pros: 1. Travel friendly packaging
2. Love the color of the face pack.
Cons: 1. Overpriced
2. Does not whiten skin as it claims to
3. Causes occasional breakouts
4. I do not like the fragrance
My Rating: 3/5
Will I Repurchase It?: No, I will try some other face pack next time, suggestions are always welcome :)…..
