Lotus herbals has worked out their packaging so well this time, the Skin whitening & brightening Micro Emulsion comes in a handy pump bottle. The pump makes the disposal of the product non messy and easier. 

Why Micro- Emulsion?

Micro- Emulsion is a revolutionary formulation that blends the hydrating properties of water and nourishing goodness of oil in a manner that the resultant formulation has very fine particle size.

This has several advantages:

2-6 times deeper & faster penetration
Quicker delivery of ingredients
Nourishes and hydrates
Leaves no residue

How to use it?

Use morning and evening all over the face and neck after cleansing it thoroughly. For synthetic effect, use in conjunction with WHITEGLOW Intensive Skin Whitening & Brightening Serum

Reasons to love the Skin whitening & brightening Micro Emulsion:

• The price!! Affordable for such a magical product.
• The packaging is superb; I loved the pump given for this bottle. Apt for the product it’s neither a crème nor a gel.  Can be carried anywhere and everywhere. 
• The fragrance, the fragrances of all most all the WHITEGLOW products are more or less the same, this one has a milder lingering scent. I love it!!
• It has sunscreen, SPF 25, PA+++. It’s a wonder product for me.
• Keep up to all its claims, including the skin brightening one.  You can see your face looking bright and radiant after applying it and it doesn’t vanishes at the end of the day. 
• Very light soaks up into the skin like magic. 
• Doesn’t leave a white film or casting on application, drains in naturally. 
• The quantity is considerably good for the price; the bottle goes a long way, unless you use it three times a day unlike me. :P
• Hydrates the skin, it’s the mildest moisturizing crème I have come across, because of it’s this property I use it every day and sometimes mix it with my foundation too.  Try amalgamating the Skin whitening & brightening Micro Emulsion and your foundation you will love the results.

• Not much of the product is needed; just a pump or a two of the product is enough for the entire face and neck.
• Didn’t break me out, no irritation or skin redness. :)
• Not at all greasy, leaves the face very matte but hydrated and nourished.
• Has such a prefect finish, I mean your pores and uneven skin tones are almost invisible with it. 
• It’s my first favorite from the WHITEGLOW range  followed by the scrub and the gel crème.
• Suits all skin types, undoubtedly.

Reasons to dislike the Skin whitening & brightening Micro Emulsion:

NONE!!! I absolutely love the product. But the little thing which pinched me was the paraben content but I am happily ignoring it. :)

Repurchase/ recommendation:

I am already on my second bottle. I will continue to purchase it all summer.  I recommend it to EVERYONE, I mean it’s a MUST HAVE for every women and every vanity. 
