My Opinion: - A day cream with SPF is a great time saver. So I usually choose day creams with atleast SPF 15. I have been using a lot of day creams from Avon and hence I decided to try some other brands. This time I chose Lotus Herbals Whiteglow Skin Whitening & Brightening Gel Crème SPF 25/PA+++, the “Gel Crème” thingy sounded very nice for my oily skin. This cream come boxed in white with the image of a bunch of green grapes. Inside the carton, the glass tub/jar is sitted on a plastic tray to hold the jar/tub in place. The packaging is good looking; it’s a frosted glass jar with a shiny silver screw on lid. Upon opening the main lid, a plastic protective lid is found which protects the cream from coming in contact with the main lid. This jar/tub being made of glass needs to be handled carefully and is also a bit heavy. But then otherwise its travel-friendly.

                          This cream is white somewhere in between a gel and a cream; hence Lotus Herbals aptly calls it “Gel Crème”. It is light enough for oily skin since it is water based. This cream gives the skin a cool feeling when applied and just a small quantity is required. This cream spreads well on my skin as claimed by the company but sadly sits on top of my skin if I don’t work on it for a minute or so. Only massaging can make it absorb into the skin. It gives a matt look to my skin immediately after I have applied it and in a non air-condition environment it makes my skin sweat. But in an air-conditioned environment this cream stays on matte without any sweating. The fragrance of this cream is similar to the other products of this range. It has a milky touch to it, nothing heavy or nauseating.

                           This gel crème gives a nice fresh feeling to my skin and controls oil for an hour or two. But in AC my face remains somewhat matte throughout the day. This cream moisturises my skin well but does not make it greasy. It’s a good base for makeup, and I sometimes apply foundation over it with good results; but generally I am used to applying powder (loose/compact) and a bit of blusher/bronzer on my face over this crème. This crème makes my skin bright and smooth after each application. It adds softness and suppleness to my skin. The plus point is that this crème contains SPF so I don’t have to use extra sunscreen along with it. Also this crème contains a number of natural ingredients which makes it all the more attractive.

Pros: -

* Contains SPF 25

* Gel based cream makes it great for oily skin/combination skin

* Light weight formula gives adequate moisture to my skin but doesn’t make it oily

* Controls oil for an hour or two, can be fixed with a oil-blotting paper & a face powder

* Ingredient list is attractive with a number of natural additions

* A little cream is needed for each use and hence this 60 gms tub/jar will see me through 2+ months with regular use

Cons: -

* Lotus Herbals product contains PARABENS

* Makes me sweat when I am out in the sun or in a non AC environment

* Company claims that it is suitable for All Skin Types but I doubt its effect on dry skin

             I rate this Lotus Herbals Whiteglow Skin Whitening & Brightening Gel Crème SPF 25/PA+++ 4 out of 5. It makes me sweat in a non AC environment/in the sun but stays good in AC environment. Suits my oily skin so well but dry skin people please check it out at a store by swatching before you purchase.

My lotion contains lesser SPF amount which is not effectively working good. This would be a nice replacement to my old whitening creme. Thanks for your very nice review.
