Lotus Herbals Papayablem Papaya-N-Saffron Anti-Blemish Crème

I have met few lucky people who have occasional breakouts and those zits don’t even leave any marks behind. I envy them. My skin ensures you can notice the current breakouts as well as the proof of old ones. I am huge fan of Lotus so when I saw this crème, I decided to give it a shot. I bought it and then I forgot all about it. I excavated it again in July and have been trying to use it religiously ever since.

The crème has a saffron and papaya mixed kind of smell which is not very strong and doesn’t linger on for a long time.

What it claims:
The unique blend of papaya, saffron, almond and apricot not only clears blemishes, spots, scars from the face but also makes the complexion fair. Imparts a smooth and spotless glow to the face. There is a two week claim on the label and it is suitable for all skin types.

Directions for use:
Cleanse face with lemonpure cleanser. Apply in dots. Gently massage in upward direction. Can be used at any time of the day. For best result, use it at night.

Ingredients: See the pic above.

What it did:
 I don’t use the lemonpure cleanser; I just wash my face with Sebamed’s cleansing bar and then apply this crème. The crème had a little oily feel to it so I decided it would be best to use it at night. It took more than two weeks in my case, for me to see some positive effects. My face looks a lot clear in the morning, the scars are still there but to be fair, they have been there for a long time so it will be a long battle. I used a little more quantity than required in order to speed up the process, but nothing drastic happened so now, I try not to smother my face with it! It is very effective in case of tanning due to sun exposure.

Price:  It was Rs. 260 when I bought it but now it is Rs. 285 for 50gm (Don't be fooled by the tub's size, it has a false bottom and carries only 50ml)

Update: They have changed the packaging, now the 50ml tub looks like a 50 ml tub!

  • Suitable for all skin types.
  • If you have minor blemish or scar problem, you will get result soon.
  • Effective from tanning as well.
  • I like their seal cap with a small extension to pull it up.
  • The quantity will last you for a long time. I have been using it for two months and I have only made a small dent.

  • Take care to not apply it around the eye area; it has clove oil which makes you feel uncomfortable.
  • It’s a jar so you end up putting your fingers inside it again and again. I try and avoid it by taking more than I need.
  • Price can be a factor for some.
