GUEST REVIEW BY SREEPARNA GANGULY
Deep cleansing once in a while is extremely important to clean up the clogged pores from the delicate facial skin. If pores are left block longer it leads to pimples, blackheads and what not. Most of the time our facial pores get blocked by facial oils, makeup leftovers and various pollutants suspended in the environment. Today I will be sharing my experience about a cream cleanser by Lotus Herbals called Lemon pure Turmeric & Lemon Cleansing Milk that has helped me a lot to get over with clogged pores. To know how I like it; read on.
This Turmeric and Lemon cleansing milk by Lotus Herbals is said to be an ‘ideal for deep cleaning & removing make-up’.
Why should this be in your kitty?
- The astringent properties of lemon cleanses off the impurities from the skin.
- Turmeric acts as an antiseptic to your skin.
- This cleanser maintains moisture balance and preserves skin’s elasticity at the same time.
Price: Rs.245 for 80ml
Shelf Life: 36 months from the date of packaging
How to Use: Take 2-3 pumps of the product in your palm. Dot it all over your face and neck. Now start messaging with outward circular strokes. If you want to remove your make up with it then you should use a moist cotton pad to wipe off the excess cleanser from your skin. If you want deep cleansing then splash lukewarm water on your face and finally pat dry.
MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT
Packaging/Availability: This Lemon and Turmeric based cleansing milk comes, in a light yellow pump bottle. The pump is securely placed within a plastic lid that is also light yellow in colour. In the front side of the bottle, there is the ‘Lotus Herbals’ logo, small pictorials of the main constituents of this product (lemon and turmeric to be precise) and bright green coloured label graphics. The back side of the bottle contains the claims, user guide, ingredients and some other important information. Overall the packaging is sturdy and user-friendly. Availability is not an issue with this product because it is easily available in all the leading cosmetic stores and departmental stores at 10% or more discounts round the year. It can also be found online.
Colour: This cleanser is light yellow in colour. The colour is very similar to the outer packaging.
Texture: This product is quite creamy in texture. The consistency is smooth and runny. It spreads quickly and washes off pretty fast.
Fragrance: The cream cleanser smells heavenly fresh and citrusy. The fragrance lingers for sometimes but does not feel overpowering. This is the best lemon fragranced product I have ever used.
Suitability: This product suits best for normal to dry skin. Oily skinned people may use this as a makeup cleanser or deep cleanser but they should cleanse their face with a suitable face wash after using this to avoid oiliness and breakouts.
Effectiveness: This cleansing milk cleanses my acne-prone combination skin (that becomes very dry in winter) without causing any irritation or break-outs. Along with cleansing my pores it also restores the lost moisture. To solve my blackheads problem in winter; every night I apply 2 pumps of this wonder product to my skin and take hot towel treatment for 3-4 minutes. Finally, I wash my face with lukewarm water and apply a baby cream. This way my skin remains healthy and glowing in the harsh coldness. I have used this product as a make up remover too. It removes every trace of makeup (even the waterproof ones too) without any hassle. I find every claim by the company is true when it comes to this particular product.
FINAL RECOMMENDATION: I recommend this cleansing milk to everybody who wants a pore cleanser or a makeup remover that will provide a healthy and a moisturized skin.
