Review, Price, Buy Online Lotus Herbals Youth RX Active Anti Ageing Exfoliator
By Contributor: Priya
When it comes to skin care, I cannot emphasize enough the role of a good exfoliator in a skin care regimen. A great exfoliator can make a huge amount of difference in your skin if used on the regular basis. I do have 2 HG face scrubs – both for different purposes. But that does not stop me from experimenting and trying out new launches. So today I will review another new scrub in the market which is the Lotus Herbals Youth Rx Gineplex Active Anti Ageing Exfoliator. Let’s know more about this one.
Lotus Herbals Claims: Its unique ‘TRIPLE ACTION FORMULA’ gently exfoliates, protects and nourishes the skin from within. Results: Instantly reveals younger and healthier looking skin
Active Ingredients: Vanilla Beans, Ginseng, Ginger, Milk Peptide Complex
My Review of Lotus Herbals Youth Rx Anti Ageing Exfoliator:
I have had a love-hate relationship with Lotus Herbals products. I absolutely love their sunscreens, face masks and exfoliators and abhor their facial moisturizers – day cream, night cream and the innumerable gels that they have. So when I first came across this scrub, I thought of giving it a try with zero expectations and a neutral mind. The SA also insisted me to try the Youth RX Serum and Face cream, but I blatantly denied, considering my past experience. But now after being in love with this baby since the last 1 month, I am certainly keyed up to try out the serum.
Packaging: When I first spotted this beautiful gold and purple tube standing in display at a beauty store, I could not believe it was Lotus Herbals!! It is basically a gorgeous royal gold and purple coloured shiny tube with a screw cap (that I dislike). The tube contains 100 ml of the product and is quite travel friendly. The only drawback of this product is that, the tube has a wide mouth which can spill a lot of product. Otherwise, I am super happy with the packaging.
Colour and Texture: The texture of this Lotus exfoliator is quite interesting. It’s a creamy white coloured scrub which turns into a light gel-like texture on smearing. This exfoliator has brown-ish black coloured scrubbing particles that do feel quite harsh on the skin. It is generally advisable that you must scrub your face for 60 seconds for deriving the optimum benefits, but with this scrub you cannot do that. Also, you need to be very careful and scrub this over the face with a light hand.
Smell: Ok! This is the most difficult part for me because this fragrance is difficult to describe. This face scrub smells like some expensive after shave lotions, but with a herbal touch. Trust me, whatever the smell, I absolutely love it!! It is not overly strong by any means and also does not linger on the skin. But I do enjoy the awesome fragrance till the time I am scrubbing my face (which is less than a minute with this scrub).
Quality/Results: As far as the results are concerned, I am truly impressed!! I do have super oily acne prone sensitive skin (basically the most high maintenance skin ever) and this exfoliator did not dry out my skin or cause any irritations or break outs whatsoever. In fact, with regular use (twice a week for 1 month) it has brightened my skin considerably and also lightened my acne spots. Frankly speaking, I was expecting this product to be another run-of-a-mill kind of exfoliator with huge claims and no results. But I must admit that this baby left me flabbergasted with its performance in the very first use. It proved me wrong by all means and I proudly say that this is another permanent member in my skin care stash.
