Lotus Herbals YOUTHRx Youth Activating Serum + Creme Review

Serum is an emerging and effective skincare product although not originally from Indian skincare. It gets absorbed easily and is lightweight in nature which delivers maximum benefits to the skin. Today's review is about one such serum + creme from Lotus Herbals. My mom has used it for around one month and after that I have used it for around 15 days. Let's head on to the review to see how it fairs and whether lives upto it's claims.

My experience
The product is packaged in a pump up bottle and is very sturdy. The packaging colour is golden with dark pink engravedo letters and transpa cap. The pump dispenses adequate quantity of the product and just 2 pumps are needed got everyday use. The fragrance is a little floral and very nice. It doesn't linger and is not at all bothering.

As the name indicates the product is actually of the consistency of serum and colour is that of creme. The serum + creme is very lightweight in nature and gets absorbed in skin like magic. The product is extremely non-oily, non-greasy and non-sticky. No sooner you apply the creme to your skin than it gets absorbed easily without leaving any residue.

Me and my mom, we both apply the creme immediately the first thing after the bath. Just 2 pumps are enough for the whole face. As soon as you apply it to the face, it instantly moisturizes the skin making it soft and smooth. It.gives an even toned skin as well as hydrates it. It also imparts a subtle glow to the skin which lasts a few minutes. With regular usage me and my mom have noticed a reduction in the scar marks. My mom has seen visible effect in the even toning of her slightly wrinkled skin. Since I have a little uneven skin I have seen effects in that case. 

Overall it is a revolutionary product which delivers without false pretences. Moreover it is meant for all skin types, and I have never had a breakout or something like that.



The In
  • Contains Ginseng 
  • Travel friendly packaging and size
  • Hygienic and attractive packaging
  • Extremely lightweight creme
  • Hydrates the skin sufficiently 
  • Moisturizes the skin and gets absorbed easily without leaving any residue

Recommendation
I would highly recommend the Lotus Herbals YOUTHRx Youth Activating Serum + Creme for anti aging benefits as well as those wanting to start their anti aging regime. It's lightweight yet effective formula is quite apt for daily use and doubles up as a moisturizer as well. Those wanting a lightweight moisturizing effect can also use it. It is a definite repurchase for me and highly recommended by Skincare Villa.

Kama Ayurveda Rose Jasmine Face Cleanser Review

The Kama Ayurveda Rose Jasmine face cleanser accompanied me during my travels and am more than happy to post the review. Read on to know what makes this cleanser ideal for your skin as well as a travel friendly product.

Brand claims, Ingredients and Directions to use - Click here




My experience
The best thing about the Kama Ayurveda Rose Jasmine face cleanser is the super sleek pump packaging. The pump dispenses just the right amount of the product and the small cap is tight enough to prevent product leakage. The pump dispenser is small in size which is sufficiently enough as a very little amount of cleanser is needed for every use.

The cleanser is transparent in colour with a little runny consistency. The fragrance of cleanser is of fresh mesmerising roses. The fragrance is not at all artifical, instead is heavenly which will make you feel fresh and clean. The cleanser doesn't foam much, but when slowly rubbed between the palms it gives a frothy foam which disperses when it comes in contact with water.

The cleanser cleans the face efficiently and removes dirt, oil and grime. It leaves the skin soft and smooth and gets washed off easily. It doesn't dry out the skin at all. The main reason for cleanser being a favourite with me is that it contains salicylic acid. I experienced fewer than usual breakouts while using this cleanser. It also hydrates the skin a bit not much though and makes it glow a bit. The cleanser is a winner for all skintypes especially oily skin.


The In
  • Super sleek packaging which makes it very travel friendly 
  • Pump packaging dispenses right amount of product 
  • Very less cleanser is required for each use hence product lasts longer 
  • Contains salicylic acid
  • Contains rose and jasmine essential oils 
  • Contains Vertiver and Liquorice root extracts 
  • Contains basil and aloe vera leaf extracts 
  • Makes the skin soft and smooth 
  • Easy online availability as well as available in Kama Ayurveda stores

The Out
  • A bit pricey
Price, shelf life - 375 INR for 50 ml.

Recommendation
I would highly recommend the Kama Ayurveda Rose Jasmine face cleanser for all skintypes. It gently yet effectively cleanses the skin without drying it. The super sleek packaging makes it a winner in terms of being travel friendly. Also the impressive ingredients list adds up to it's efficiency. I would highly recommend you all to try it out at least once.
