Lotus Herbals Nutranite Skin Renewal Nutritive Night Cream




Lotus Herbals has a great product portfolio and is quite convincing when it comes to the product benefits. As I was super impressed with Lotus Herbals Day Cream's performance, I was looking for an anti aging, nourishing night cream and ended up buying Nutranite Skin Renewal Nutritive Night Cream.



What the brand says:

This is a luxurious nutrient-rich night cream that helps renew the skin while you sleep. It repairs the damages caused by dehydration and exposures during the day to give a supple and renewed skin. It boots skin's resiliency, strengthens natural defenses while restoring firmness and smoothing imperfections.

The 50 g pack comes in a sturdy glass jar.

Why should you go for a night cream?

We often wonder if night creams are useful at all. Little we realize that your skin that has gone through so much wear & tear during the day (UV rays, pollution, stress) and needs a repair formula at night. Night creams hydrate, moisturize and replenish renewed skins replacing the dead and worn out cells. 

Active ingredients: 





The benefits that Lotus claims: 
  • Consists of natural oxidants that make the cream highly antiseptic and astringent
  • Repairs skin cells by removing dirt and impurities
  • Helps in strengthening the skin's natural defense
  • Consists of nutrients that restores skin's firmness and resilience
  • Adds a gorgeous golden glow


Good things I experienced:  



  • The texture is quite silky
  • The density of the cream feels rich and smooth
  • A very little is required to apply on face and neck 
  • Moisturizes very well

Cons that I found  - I felt cheated. OOPS! 
  • The sales rep sold this Lotus Herbals night cream to me calling it anti aging cream, which is not one. (I read the same in reviews later). This is just a nutritive night cream that vitalizes, hydrates and adds glow to your skin. It does not tighten skin nor works on fine fines.
  • Secondly, this is too heavy as a night cream. The cream leaves my skin oily and sticky. It might suit those with dry skin type, but definitely not the combination or oily skin type. I am scared of using it as it may cause acne or breakouts. The cream is lying unused in my closet. (Sigh!)
  • Though the fragrance is mild, it is not pleasing. To me it smells of too much chemicals.
  • The jar is not travel friendly.
Price- MRP: Rs 455. You can get it a discounted price online. 

My rating- 2.5 on 5. Lotus Herbals can do a better job I am sure. This disappointed me.  

(If you are looking for nourishing creams, why spend so much on Lotus Herbals? If you are looking for anti aging benefits with night repair formula , there are way better products in the market in the same price.)

Lotus Herbals White Glow Day Cream - Product Review



I usually don't review every skin care product that I use. My regular readers would know I blog about the ones that I either liked a lot or hated the most. There is no "average" take for me. This time I am reviewing Lotus Herbals White Glow Day Cream with SPF 25.




I was looking for a light weight, non sticky day cream with SPF. I could have chosen any sunblock for the same, but we all know how sunblocks make your skin look sticky, oily and dark. We don't want to look like deep fried bread. Do we? Lotus has a huge range of skin care products and of-late I have been trying lot of other products from Lotus Herbals. My last pick was Lotus Nutranite Skin Renewal Nutritive Night Cream which turned out to be heavy, making my skin look oily. (Night creams should be light and non oily). I was hence apprehensive about this day cream. However, the online reviews changed my mind and I decided to give it a try.

For starters my skin type is combination with an oily T-point. 

This 50 gm pack comes in a tough glass jar, sturdily packed and sealed. The pack says it is gel creme. Though the color is opaque and not transparent like gel, the light weight gel like texture justifies the name.




The formula and its magic:

The brand claims the product has multiple fruit extract that together provide smoother, brighter and well-protected skin. Its SPF 25 can help you get ideal skin protection while in direct sunlight.It is gel based cream – a unique formulation to help quick absorption and oil free look.The fairness agents provide a brighter complexion while keeping you protected against the harsh effects of sunlight. It rejuvenates the skin from within and provides extra glow. This makes the skin look fresher and lighter than before.It protects the skin from UVA and UVB rays, and thus effectively prevent skin darkening.







What the brand claims- 

  • Works with your skin’s own repair system to undo damage caused by pollutants and other environmental factors during the day
  • Boosts skin resiliency
  • Strengthens skin’s natural defense
  • Restores firmness to your skin
  • Promotes skin tissue regeneration



My take-
I was not looking for a fairness cream (I am comfortable with my complexion and no cream can make your fairer. ) I wanted an all purpose day cream to vitalize and protect my skin. This one solved the purpose besides contributing to brighter tone. 

Being a gel creme, the texture is light and does not weight down on skin. It gets easily absorbed in skin. The best part is that my skin does not turn oily at all. I no more struggle with the shine and sticky look. 

Brightening effect is far fetched and may not show results within few days of use. But my skin feels smoother and fresher than before.

Lotus White Cream has a mild fragrance which does not irritate or cause headache. (Thank God!).  It suited me well and I am happy with the efficacy. I use it before applying tinted cream or makeup. One can use this cream standalone without fearing skin's greasiness.
   
        
The cream texture


The cream is NOT for-
Treatment of pimples, acne
Blemish clearing 
Controlling oil on skin
Reducing pore size
Use as cold cream

Pros
Light weight
Refreshes skin
Does not leave skin greasy. For all skin type
Suits all age group
Very mild fragrance
Has SPF 25 for good sun protection
Can be used before makeup
Skin feels fresh and revitalized 
Priced at Rs 292 from Amazon, the 50 g quantity is totally worth the price. 

Cons-
Not paraben free, though chemically tested and not harsh on skin. 
Apart from this I did not find any con in Lotus Herbals White Glow. The only other disadvantage I can think of is the 50 g pack not being travel friendly. You can buy a light weight, sleek 30 g tube for your travel kit.




Overall
You can buy Lotus Herbals WhiteGlow Day Gel Creme from hereI would rate Lotus Herbals White Glow Day Cream a straight 4 on 5. 
Repeat buy for me? YES
