Finally I am reviewing a lotion, which I have been using for past two months with the hope that it would show some results as per its claims. So my review is up , and lets prod on to see how it fared according to me.

My Take on the Product:
The Look: It is a not so runny, decently thick while colored lotion.
The Texture: It tends to leave a film on skin, so needs some time to get absorbed by the skin.
The Smell: Smells fruity kind of , I like the smell.
This could be an ideal daily moisturizer, leaves a subtle glow after its use. Though I have oily-combination skin, it did not break me out, but I would warn oily skinned ladies to use it with caution. This is because, it is very much moisturizing , hence better used by oily skinned people during winters. The skin does not tan after its usage. Though it claims to works on spots and marks, I tried hard , used it for more than two months but I am sorry to mention, they were not visible. I have a couple of pigmented spots near my left eye socket, but it did not lighten them at all.
The Price: INR 450 for 60 ml bottle
To sum up the positive and negative aspects:
- Moisturizing and keeps skin hydarated
- Ideal day moisturizer for normal to dry skinned ladies
- I like the smell
- Keeps tan at bay to great extent, I was out in the sun for about two hours after using this, but I did not tan.
- Imparts a temporary glow to skin after its use
- It does not lighten spots etc, as it has claimed.
- No brightening effect visible
- Might be oily for oily skinned beauties.
Summary: I guess, this is a good daily moisturizer and sunscreen lotion rather than a brightening one. I recommend it to normal to dry skins, but it did not break me out inspite of my skin being oily. Unfortunately, it did not work on the spots and I could not notice any lightening properties.
Product Score: 3.5/5
Product sent by the Company for review, but it is an honest review.
