Winter is the season of festivals, parties, family get together and lots of fun. Winter is also a season of dull, dry, flaky skin and sometimes even more than this. Who wants to look tired and older at the holiday parties and family get together? It may be a favourite season to many of us, but it takes away the natural moisturising oil from our skin. On top of this, hot showers and baths also contribute to make the outer layer of our skin dry, itchy and tight. So, friends if we don’t take care of our skin, it may lead to skin problems and infections.
To create a protective shield around our skin against the harsh effects of the cold weather, we need to use good moisturiser using once or twice a day depending on our skin type. Lotus Herbals has a wide range of moisturising lotions that would help you to have hydrated skin in winter. For the last one week, I am using their Shea moist moisturiser and here I am sharing my experience of using the product.
The product claims
This innovative 24-hour moisturiser containing shea butter and strawberry extract moisturises the skin for extended periods. The time release formula ensures there are bursts of moisture at regular intervals.
Lotus Herbals Sheamoist is rich with ingredients like shea butter, strawberry extract, light liquid paraffin, glycerine, aloe Vera extract etc. that provide maximum hydration and protects our skin.
Shea butter is a fat extracted from the north of the African shea tree. It is widely used in cosmetics as a moisturiser, salve or lotion. It is an excellent emollient for dry skin. Strawberry is rich in vitamin C, so it helps fight oily skin and nourishes and revitalises our skin. Because of its acidic nature this is very effective to remove the excess sebum from our skin. Liquid paraffin is a mineral oil which is widely used in skin care products. It creates a protective layer on our skin and helps to retain the moisturiser. Glycerine has moisturising properties which prevents skin dryness and provides a softer skin. Aloe Vera is also a natural moisturiser which works as anti-irritant and makes our skin soft and supple. Though all the ingredients are very skin friendly still I would suggest before applying the moisturiser on your face, use it on your hand and wait for 24 hours. If you don’t feel any irritation go for it and apply it on your face to have a moisturised skin.
Price and availability
The product is available in 2 sizes 60-gram Rs 205 and 120 grams at Rs 285 (both MRP).
The shelf life of the product is 3 years from the date of manufacture.
Direction of use
Step 1 – Wash your face either with Lotus Herbals jojoba wash active Milli capsules face wash or with any other face wash and wash your face with normal water.
Step 2 – Squeeze the tube and take required amount of the moisturizer on your fingertips.
Step 3 – Apply the moisturiser on your face.
Step 4 – Massage gently in circular motion and let your skin absorb the moisturiser and leave it.
I love the bright and easy to use Packaging of the moisturizer. It comes in a tube with the flip cap that shorts tightly ensuring there is no spillage.
Texture colour and fragrance
It is neither as fluid as a lotion nor as creamy as a cold cream. I would say the texture of the moisturiser is more like curd or yogurt. So, a small amount on the tip of your finger will be enough for one time use on your face. The light pinkish colour and strawberry like smell of the moisturiser will make you feel fresh all-day long.
My observation about the product
- It keeps your skin hydrated for 24 hours
- Make skin soft and smooth
- Add Glow to skin absorbs quickly and does not make your skin sticky or oily
- Container is bright and travel friendly
- Because of its not like consistency sufficient amount comes out when you squeezed the tube once.
- Rich in anti-oxidant.
I love the product very much as it does what it claims. As I have dry skin every winter I experience dryness and keep on experimenting different moisturiser. Thanks to Lotus Herbals Sheamoist, it not only moisturises my skin for a longer period of time, it also makes my skin soft, smooth and shiny.
