Good day amigos!
I am today reviewing Lotus Tea Tree & Cinnamon Anti-Acne Oil Control Face Wash. I have never used Lotus face washes, its name got me interested and I thought of giving it a try. So, moving on to the review, here are the details.
Lotus Tea Tree & Cinnamon Anti-Acne Oil Control Face Wash is specially formulated for acne-prone and oily-skin. This oil-control anti acne face wash contains Tea Tree oil, Cinnamon and Oak Bark extracts which removes excessive oils while regulating the sebum (oil) production in the skin. These special ingredients in this premium face wash decrease acne-type lesions and combat free radicals leaving the skin fresh, clean and clearer.
Price and quantity:
Rs. 75 for 50 g, Rs. 125 for 80 g.
Tea tree and cinnamon extracts
Squeeze a small amount on wet palm of your hand. Apply on wet face with circular motions. Wash off. Use regularly mornings & evenings and follow with Lotus Herbals ACNE GEL for best result.
My Take on Lotus Herbals Tea Tree Face Wash:
Lotus Tea Tree & Cinnamon Anti Acne Oil Control Face Wash is a liquid gel, full with tiny white beads and it comes in a tube with flip top cap. The smell is ridiculously weird; it reminds me of some toothpaste or cough syrup from my childhood (maybe the smell of tea tree and peppermint oil). Anyways, the gel is not so thick, quite runny. That’s why I have to be very careful whenever I pour it on my hand.
A small amount of it will lather pretty well and the beads are also very mild. What really makes this face wash so-so for me is it leaves a slippery effect after rinsing. It takes more than 15 splashes and rubbing off to get the slippery effect out, and yet after that I feel I should wash more.
It cleans the skin very well, once rinsed and pat-dried, I see the squeaky clean skin. Now about controlling oil, it works hardly 4-5 hours (which I feel is quite fine) in summer days. It does not leave my skin dry either (I have normal skin with T-zone oily). It keeps my facial skin well moisturized and at the same time controls oil.
The other good thing about this face wash is it gives a fresh feel after washing off. But, as the product claims about acne, I did not feel any difference or improvements to note down. So, overall it is a so-so face wash for me, because it has too many cons that I cannot overlook.
