My Experience with Lotus Herbals Nutraglow Daily Tinted Moisturiser(SPF25) Fresh Ivory & Hazelnut Star:-
With every other brand launching BB creams now and then, how could our very own brand Lotus herbals stay behind. Lotus herbals has come out with a tinted moisturizer infused with aloe vera, calendula and hibiscus extracts. When I saw this product at flipkart, I thought to try this out as I prefer using tinted moisturizer on a day today basis than foundations. Itâ€™s a pretty decent product from Lotus herbals but I donâ€™t think its price is well justified. I may not repurchase it again.
Shades: Three shades are available:
I picked up two shades Fresh Ivory and Hazelnut star as I felt one would be too light and another could be too dark for my skin tone. I mix both the shades to get the desired color for my skin tone. But now I feel both the shades match my skin tone, I really should not have bought both the shades. I could have saved the money and spent on something better.Â :-p
Packaging: Lotus Nutra glow daily tinted moisturizer comes in a glass bottle with a pump dispenser kind packaging. I find the packaging to be quite bulky, not very travel friendly and prone to breakage. List of ingredients alongwith shades name and price is mentioned on the outer carton. The packaging and information given in the carton looks great and attractive.
- Texture: This tinted moisturizer is very lightweight and blends within seconds onto my skin. Its neither runny nor thick, it has got the right consistency which I prefer in BB creams and tinted moisturizers.
- Coverage: This tinted moisturizer looks pigmented but on application I found it to be very sheer. However, its pretty buildable, with more quantity I got better coverage. It evened out my skin tone and reduced the appearance of dark circles to a great extent. It did not conceal freckles or stubborn acne marks.
- Staying Power: It stayed whole day on my normal to dry skin, however My T zone started looking shiny after 4 hours of application. So I am not sure how this is going to behave on people with oily skin.
- Overall Effect: This tinted moisturizer has got faint fragrance of calendula flowers which I find quite pleasant. This tinted moisturizer feels light on skin and hydrates my skin quite well. It keeps my skin hydrated for the whole day. It evens out my skin tone imparting soft, smooth glowing skin. People with normal to dry skin will definitely love this product. It contains glycerine so I am not going to use this more during summers as moisturizers with glycerine attracts dirt and makes my skin look dull during summers. It keeps my skin bright looking but nothing unnaturally bright like other products in the market. I have been using it since 2 weeks and It has not yet broken me out.
- Availability & Price: Currently Its available at few of the online shopping sites, however I have not yet seen these at Lotus counters yet. It costs Rs 475 for 50 ml of the product which is not justified.

Will I repurchase it? I donâ€™t think so. I can get better products at lesser price.
My Overall Recommendation: Lotus Herbals Nutraglow tinted moisturizer is an average moisturizer imparting sheer coverage. However, it imparts better coverage when used in more quantity. It contains spf 25, with several natural ingredients. It keeps my skin well hydrated, smooth and soft all day long. It imparts dewy finish, even complexion and its a great pick for winters. However, I felt it attracts dirt and makes my skin dull while travelling. It wont be very suitable for oily skin people. You can try this out once, but you seriously wonâ€™t be at a loss if you skip this out.
