Lotus Herbals Phyto-RX Protective Lotion Review

What it says? Rejuvina Herbcomplex Daily Protective Lotion-An everyday moisturising sun protector with SPF15 that not only locks in essential moisture but also works as a defense system for the skin from ill effect of the sun, wind, UV radiation and heat. It helps heal minor rashes and sun burns and also shields skin from invading elements while keeping it protected and well moisturised.

Price & Quantity– Rs 225 for 190 gm.

that’s one pump

As you can see, it has left a slight white cast which the camera could not pick up properly

I did not apply it below the wrist and on fingers and you can see the brightness

What I like about the lotion:

  • It has got SPF 15 in it. Although it is not much but SPF in any quantity is always welcome
  • I use it once a day i.e in the morning and no break outs so far.
  • I’ve combination/oily skin and it gives a matte effect on application. It keeps my skin non-oily for about 3-4 hours in the April heat of Delhi. Apply a compact on top and you are free for half of the day.
  • It has this light thin watery pink consistency which spreads easily. I just take a pump and dot my face with it and then spread. Works better that way.
  • It gives a slight tint too which brightens your face and makes you look more awake. No coverage, just even skin tone.
  • I like the smell although I can’t pin point what exactly it is. I’m still going nuts over it!
  • It feels like Lacto Calamine to me. LC did wonders to my skin and so does this.
  • Its non-greasy and oily.
  • Its a good moisturizer, given the fact its specially made for oily-comb. skin it does its job pretty well.
  • You can use it as a makeup base.
What I don’t like:
  • The fact that its only available at salons.
  •  It doesnt comes with any cap. Although it comes with a ring attached to the base of the pump when you bring it home, but I threw/lost the ring. So, I’m not sure if you can travel with this in your bag.
  • The pump did not work initially. It was like some old machine which demanded oiling first! But now its working fine.
  • I expect Lotus to be more herbal in their ingredients.
  • It gives a slight whitish cast because of the tint it has. But now I have reduced the quantity and it looks better this way. Just don’t use too much or it will look ashy.

Re-purchase? Yes
Recommendation? Its a nice moisturizer with slight SPF and tint in it. If you have oily-combination skin, you are really going to like it. Always reminds me of the calamine lotion.
