For a long time now, I have been looking for that one product that will fit under My #ForEverydayWear Category Because, While I might have found some great warriors in the foundation/TM’s & BB Cream departments, I still have not found that Everyday Wear Base.

Lotus Herbals Nutra Glow Daily Tinted Moisturizer Review
I will cut right to the chase nd say….Lotus Herbals Tinted Moisturizer is probably a better fit for dry skin-types. It is certainly not for All the Skin-types like it has been tagged on the bottle. My Skin type is Normal-Combination & Lotus Herbals Tinted Moisturizer is a tad too oily for me. The Tinted Moisturizer absorbs well & moisturizes my skin well but post application, It looks like it did nothing! Well, It does imparts a subtle glow but apart from that I see no difference 🙁 No coverage & No evenness of skin!
Tinted Moisturizers are not supposed to deliver excellent coverage but they are supposed to deliver some & Lotus Herbal’s Tinted Moisturizer does not deliver any! To sum it up post application, I don’t feel any difference. 🙁 Moreover the moisturizer turns my Combination skin kinda oily in a matter of 3 hours & delivers an average staying power of 5-6 hours at the top.
The only way I can think of employing this TM is under a Compact/Powder as a moisturizing base. If you have a dry-normal skin-type whoeze not looking for too much of coverage, this might work for you but anywhere from combination to oily skintypes, will find it too oily!
Price-Quantity: INR 475 for 50 mL
See the Glow it imparts….
The Sweet Aspects
- Delivers a Subtle Glow
- Light-weight Formula
- Moisturizes the Skin well in the dry areas
- SPF of 25
- Enriched with Candula Extracts, Aloe Vera & Hibiscus
The Not so Sweet Aspects
- Not Suitable for Everday Wear – Can be used under a compact though
- Will not conceal Problematic areas like Blemishes & Redness
- Very minimal Coverage
- Gets Oily on the T-zones within 3-4 hours
- Not suitable for Combination to Oily Skin-types
- Staying Power is quite low – As low as 3-4 hours
- Contains Parabens
- Slightly expensive for a drugstore
Lotus Herbals’s Tinted Moisturizer moisturizes well & imparts a subtle glow to the skin. The Sweet aspects continue with the benefits of special ingredients like Candula Extracts, Aloe Vera, Hibiscus & SPF 25 but that’s where it all ends. Bcoz Lotus Herbals TM offers no coverage & tends to be a tad oily on my Combination-oily Skin. Not Recommended Especially for Combination to Oily Skin-types & Bcoz it does not delivers the claims it makes!
