Hey everyone, today I will be reviewing a yet another skin care product from Lotus, named Lotus Herbals Berryscrub Strawberry & Aloe Vera Exfoliating face wash. I just love Lotus Herbals skin care & makeup products as they are herbal, less expensive and suit my fragile skin. Most of us know the importance of exfoliation, specially when you have combination to oily skin. I have combination skin and a gentle exfoliation is must for me to keep my skin clean and clear. I have been using this face wash cum scrub for last 2 years and this is my 3rd tube of this Berryscrub.
Packaging : Lotus Herbals Berryscrub comes in a light yellow tube with flip open cap. The tube comes with a see through section near the cap to see how much product is left. I find the packaging travel friendly, as the cap is tightly shut, so there is no spilling of product.
My Experience : In order to keep my combination skin blackhead & whitehead free, I tried so many scrubs in the past. Lotus Berryscrub is one of them which I will continue to use until I find some better product. Lotus Berryscrub is a clear gel that contains brown granules (strawberry seeds I guess). It has very refreshing fragrance that will lift up your mood. It has a bit runny consistency and you have to be cautious while pouring out the product. I don’t use it regularly and prefer to use it only 2-3 times in a week as I have felt that its frequent use is making my skin dry & stretchy.
Before applying this scrub, I generally splash warm water on my face to open pores. Then I take an appropriate amount of this Berryscrub and massage it gently all over my face and neck. The granules are very mild yet effective in removing skin impurities. I mainly focus on nose and chin to get rid of those ugly blackheads. It is neither harsh nor does it sting to my sensitive skin. This face wash works up into medium lather and can be easily washed off with few splashes of water. It removes blackheads & skin impurities effectively and reduces excess oil. After using this face wash my skin feels soft & smooth and there are no traces of oil. It imparts a healthy glow on the skin which is not long lasting though. Sometimes it makes my skin a little stretchy so I usually apply moisturizer after using this face wash.
No doubt it is a great product that does 2-in-1 job, but if you have sensitive acne prone skin then you should skip this face wash. These days I am suffering from severe acne problem due to hormonal imbalance. I tried this face wash two days back and it caused skin eruption and breakouts. I am sure it is not suitable for sensitive skin. At the same time I don’t recommend this face wash to dry skin people, as it might make their skin more dry & stretchy. But if you have combination to oily skin, then Lotus Berryscrub is a good buy for you.
