My combination skin adores Gel creme more than normal Oil based creme / moisturizers. After an amazing experience with L’Oreal Paris Hydra Fresh Gel Creme I thought of giving this beauty a try (Read for review purpose). Lotus claimed that this Gel creme will keep my skin hydrated while Whitening and Brightening effects. Will it meet my expectations ? Read my review to find that out.

My Review :
While hunting for a nice Gel Creme, the SA requested me to at least swatch the Lotus Herbal WhiteGlow gel. I still regret the moment I agreed for that. When she massaged a little amount of the Gel on my hand, I was super impressed by the Glow-y effect it gave. I picked it up with high hopes and dreaming of getting rid of all my tan like a miracle.
Lotus Herbals WhiteGlow Skin Whitening & Brightening Gel Creme comes in a transparent glass jar with a steel, mirror like finish screw cap on top. I like the way it looks but its too heavy to carry around in my bag. It also come with the description, ingredients and need to know on the box.
The gel creme is white in color with the perfect consistency. It has a mild fragrance which but nothing OTT and I quite like it.The texture is somewhere between gel and creme and gets absorbed easily when applied. I like that the creme does not leave a white cast like most fairness cremes. It also makes my skin glow to some extent.
This gel, however, failed to stand on its whitening claim. I didn’t notice any whitening or brightening on my skin neither did it help to reduce my tan. I also expected a bit if moisturizing from this light weight gel but I was disappointed when it caused some stretching due to dryness. Now the worst part, the dryness made me re apply the gel creme but to my horror, the creme was flaking. Yes ! I could feel the flakes and they were all over my face which really made me worried for the first time. I am absolutely disappointed.
Overall, I think its a nice gel creme for summers when you don’t need a lot of moisturizing or any oily moisturizer to cause any breakouts. If you are going by its claims then stay away ladies !
