Lotus Herbals Professional PhytoRx Protective Lotion Review
When I did my sunscreen collection post, two of my friends asked me to do a review on this lotion which is actually a moisturizer with SPF 15. It is for normal to oily skin but I was attracted to it and grabbed it immediately without even knowing it wasn’t for my skin type. I don’t regret my decision and I’m happy I picked it though it’s not meant for my skin type but I am totally in love with this product. It’s my current favorite product, move on to know more about it..

My take: True to its claims, this product is preservative free, free from artificial fragrance and colour and mostly natural ingredients have been used. :yes:
My Experience with the Product:
This lotion comes in a green color bottle with a pump dispenser. Earlier the packaging was different but this is the latest version, it got manufactured in June only so it does not match the earlier bottle, that bottle didn’t have a cap which was a con for many but now it has a cap and the most convenient packaging.
The consistency of this lotion is neither runny nor thick, it’s just perfect. It gets absorbed in an instant and it looks a bit like tinted moisturizer as it’s pinkish in texture. It resembles BB cream but the only difference is that it is light and gives ample moisturization. It has a neutral fragrance, it’s just natural, no artificial fragrance has been used so there’s nothing I would like or dislike about its smell as it smells totally of the ingredients used.
I have 3-4 products from Lotus’ professional range among which I already reviewed the face wash which was extremely good and I still have it with me. You can check the review HERE but don’t mind the pics, it was the starting phase of my blog. I will be reviewing the rest in the coming week. I bought this moisturizer when I was in the worst phase of my life, acne phase, yeah I know how sad it is to have acne and pimples. I get pimples when I stress a lot so every time my exam date reaches, my face shows my stress i.e it burst in pimples. It’s the only thing I dislike in my life, I plan so much as to how stylishly I’d go to my college as there also comes guys from another college, haha it’s a joke:quiet: and what I see is my face turning dull and dry. Never mind, back to the mosturizer, this product came to me as a saviour, it hid my acne and pimples like there was nothing. I used it as a base for my makeup and what I noticed was that my makeup was gliding so smoothly and flawlessly. It was the only product I could use with so much confidence, it actually dries up the pimples and acne so a double point. I even wanted to go with only this on my face, it made my face this flawless. It gets absorbed in an instant and makes face one to two shade lighter. It keeps skin moisturized for really long.
Let me share one more good thing about it, I used to apply it every morning and one day my beau got home. He was like, what have you done to your face, you are literally glowing. I was like, oh nothing much, it’s just my moisturizer. If any of you have seen that ad of whitetone powder, in which there’s a song “roop tumhara nikhra nikhra aaj kiya hai” something like this, don’t know the exact words, my beau was in that mode when I had this moisturizer on my face. Now you all know, how good it is. He was literally admiring me. :-P It lasts for really long, I’ve used it so many times and there’s still so much product left in it.
