Lotus Herbals Whiteglow Oatmeal & yogurt skin whitening scrub- Review

Today I will be reviewing the much talked about Oatmeal & yogurt skin whitening scrub from Lotus Herbal’s Whiteglow range.

I have been using the scrub for around 3 weeks now, and here’s what I think about it.

Product Claim:

Exfoliates & brightens skin for a healthy glow. Exfoliation plays an important part in fairness. The WHITEGLOW oatmeal & yogurt skin whitening scrub has micro granules that gently exfoliate the skin, removes excess sebum, dirt, impurities, blackheads and whiteheads leaving the skin brighter and healthier. The gentle exfoliating action works onskin discoloration, dull and uneven skin tones and softens the skin giving a firmer skin texture. Contains no harmful chemicals.

Oatmeal exfoliates gently, restores the natural moisture balance of the skin and yogurt moisturizes and lightens the skin reducing imperfections giving you silky, smooth and brighter skin.

Price and quantity:

145 INR for 100g

About the product:

Lotus Herbals is one of my favorite brands with skin care products, I have a combination and acne prone skin hence I am a bit apprehensive and reluctant in trying out new products, but like the other products from Lotus Herbals, even their Whiteglow range has not let me down.
The Oatmeal & Yogurt skin whitening scrub is one of the most talked about products from the entire WhiteGlow range, and after using it I know why. 
Initially when I started using it, I was a bit scared that the scrub might be too harsh for the face, but as I graduted with its usage I got to know why it claims to exfoliate and brighten the skin.
The scrub is a thick granular white paste. It has a pleasant and fresh fragrance. 
I use this scrub for about 4 days a week now, I mean I am just loving this scrub soo much that I always feel that I need to keep using it for clear and clean skin.
Its my favorite scrub now, as I have ditched St’ Ives apricot scrub .

How to use it:

Apply gently on moisturized skin with brisk circular motions on the face and neck. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Use twice a week for brighter and luminous skin. Follow with WhiteGlow Yogurt Radiance Mask for best results.

Reasons to like the Oatmeal & Yogurt skin whitening scrub:

First and foremostly, its for all skin types. I have a sensitive combination skin but this scrub hasn’t broke me out. 
The ingredients caught my attention next, oatmeal and yogurt, of course we all know about the famous oatmeal and milk mask, don’t we?
The price and quantity are totally justifiable, 100g of the scrub will last you long. 
It keeps up to all its claims.
• As soon as you use the scrub and wash your face you will feel that the skin is clean of all imputrities and dust.
• It’s the best exfoliating scrub I have ever used. 
• The blackheads and whiteheads are totally taken care off by the scrub.  I love it for this a lot.. My blackheads are totally in control because of this. 
• It doesn’t dry my skin, as in some scrubs tend to suck up the skin and cause break outs, this one doesn’t. 
• It does give soft and supple skin after usage. 
• I can’t say it give you a visible fair skin tone, but it definitely evens out your complexion. 
• It does make the skin firmer.

It has a non messy way of getting out the product with the nozzle kind of thing, unlike the typical flip flop caps, this also enables you to put back the extra product which can come out mistakenly.

Reasons to dislike the Oatmeal & Yogurt skin whitening scrub:

Can be a bit harsh if scrubbed too harshly, please do not scrub hard.

Contains Parabens, Lotus Herbals is supposedly a herbal and eco friendly brand, so I think they could have avoided the paraben factor.

Definitely yes, as soon as this tube gets over I will take a new one. I would recommend this product to everyone who is looking for a perfect exfoliator, and is miserably troubled by blackheads and uneven skin tone.

Rating: 4.5/5 (-0.5 for the parabens)


  1. am dying to use it now...will do from tomorrow morning:)what about the other stuff in this range? wht do u suggest Zeeba?the gel creme might be an ok thing but I am doubtful about the Serum

  2. I have been using it and I donno but I feel it is just fine but I have been hearing great things on the blogs about this but I have heard the mask is not that great...and I don't think lotus is vegan...its probably just herbal coz it relies heavily on chemicals.....

  3. @Sayani I am toh happy with everything except the Masque..... Try the gel cream its coming shortly.

    @Swati I meant to write herbal..and typed vegan..corrected Swati.....the masque is not that happening...

  4. hello, this is very good information for me i am looking for it i have search many websites,but know i get the actual information thank you. Gulmarg's legendary beauty, prime location and proximity to Srinagar naturally make it one of the premier hill resorts in the country. Originally called 'Gaurimarg' by shepherds, its present name was given in the 16th century by Sultan Yusuf Shah, who was inspired by the sight of its grassy slopes emblazoned with wild flowers. Gulmarg was a favourite haunt of Emperor Jehangir who once collected 21 different varieties of flowers from here. Today Gulmarg is not merely a mountain resort of exceptional beauty- it also has the highest green golf course in the world,Kashmir Tour Packages at an altitude of 2,650 m, and is the country's premier ski resort in the winter.
