Lotus Herbals Claywhite- Black Clay Skin Whitening Face Pack Review

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 :)…..
