Who doesn’t wish for long, thick, and lustrous hair and glowy, non-pigmented, and hydrated skin? When it comes to hair and skin health, everyone faces a different set of issues to deal with! Mine were hair loss and photodamaged and saggy skin. Once these issues started, they only seemed to get worse with time. That’s when I decided to take things into my hands and started reading and researching about the causes of hair and skin problems, and how natural ingredients can help mitigate the causes. I came across Lotus Botanicals brand that makes wellness products by harmoniously balancing science with nature.
Lotus Botanicals has been successful in finding beauty secrets in natural products. Their products include nature-derived ingredients like red onion, ginger root, green tea, turmeric, vitamin C, bio-retinol, and sandalwood powder, to name a few. Their products are free of artificial preservatives, and harmful chemicals like paraben, silicon, and sulphate. All their products are 100% vegan. I love using products from such brands, who always think of their impact on the environment. Let’s deep dive into Lotus Botanicals product reviews.
PRODUCTS FOR HAIR
What helped me with my hair loss issue is the topical application of natural ingredients like eggs, banana smoothies, apple cider vinegar, and aloe vera. But what worked with promising results is the application of onion juice and virgin coconut oil.
Onions, specifically red onions, contain a large number of essential nutrients, antioxidants and flavonoids that are excellent for hair growth. It has anti-bacterial properties and is rich in sulphur content, which is beneficial in minimizing hair breakage and hair thinning. I applied freshly extracted onion juice to my scalp for about 2-3 weeks and it augmented my hair growth to a significant extent. Sometimes I used to mix hair oil in the onion juice which resulted in shining, lustrous hair after the shampoo.
When I say freshly prepared onion juice, I used to extract it every 3-4 days using two onions. Sure, I could have refrigerated it, but it left a pungent smell in my refrigerator and I hated it. There were a few problems with this process of preparing onion juice – it took half an hour of my time, it smelt disgusting, and thus it was impossible to keep it in my hair for more than 1-2 hours. Hence, when I came across Lotus Botanicals Red Onion Hair-Fall Control Oil and Shampoo, I jumped gleefully with excitation. And I do not regret ordering these products a bit!
Lotus Botanicals Red Onion Hair-Fall Control Oil
The red onion oil comes in a unique container with a dropper cap that helps in easy application of the oil directly to the scalp. The best part about this hair oil is that it does not smell at all and many times I leave it overnight. It not only has helped with my hair loss problem, but it has worked wonders with split ends and dandruff as well. It has even prevented itching and redness.
Lotus Botanicals Red Onion Hair-Fall Control Shampoo
Since the time I started using Lotus Botanicals red onion shampoo, I have seen my hair strands getting stronger. The shampoo effectively cleanses the hair and scalp and restores scalp nutrients. The combination of the hair oil and the shampoo is a blessing for my hair – it has helped increase the thickness of my hair and has significantly reduced my hair fall. It has given a boost to my confidence and personality.
PRODUCTS FOR SKIN
Off lately, I wasn’t able to take good care of my skin. And with so much pollution and constant exposure to UV rays, my skin had turned rough, dry, and bumpy. I quickly found out that my skin was Vitamin C deficient. This deficiency not only affected my skin but also my hair. Hence, I started with Vitamin C rich-diet and supplements. Then again, I came across Lotus Botanicals Vitamin Skincare Kit which included a face scrub, face wash, and sunscreen. Before I dive into reviewing these products, let me tell you how important Vitamin C is for the skin.
Our skin naturally contains a good amount of Vitamin C, especially in the outer layer. The vitamin protects the skin from oxidative damage caused by the sun and other pollutants. A lack of vitamins in the skin leads to dry, wrinkled skin. It is scientifically proven that when tissue levels of Vitamin C are low, it can be delivered to the outer layer of skin through topical application of Vitamin C-rich products. On that account, I decided to try some topical Vitamin C-enriched products.
Lotus Botanicals Vitamin C Skin Brightening Face Scrub
The best part about this vitamin C face scrub is that it is completely natural and has no chemicals present in the ingredients. The scrub is very soft, with small granules that do not hurt my sensitive facial skin. Not only has it helped in dead skin removal, but it also scrubs off blackheads. It is mildly scented and has a perfect texture that opens up the skin pores. The vitamin C has helped a tonne to boost my skin radiance.
Lotus Botanicals Vitamin C Skin Brightening Face Wash
I use the face wash right after using the face scrub to deeply cleanse my facial skin pores. This vitamin C face wash leaves my skin fresh and energised. It also maintains the skin’s natural moisture and my skin doesn’t feel too dry after its usage. Its lathers well and its fragrance is super-nice. I have seen significant improvement in levelling out my skin tone and removing hyper-pigmentation spots. And I owe it all to the Vitamin C content in this face wash.
Lotus Botanicals Vitamin C Skin Brightening Matte Fluid Sunscreen
This is not the first time I am using Lotus Botanicals vitamin C sunscreen. Since I travel to the mountains quite often where the sun rays are harsh and full of harmful UV rays, I have been using this sunscreen for a very long time. It has improved my skin radiance big time and has been effective in reducing dark spots. Enriched with SPF 50 and Vitamin C, this sunscreen is packed with dual power and prevents my skin from tanning and burning. The product is non-sticky and absorbs effortlessly into the skin.
I am very happy with all these products from Lotus Botanicals and plan to re-order them as soon as I run out of my current stock. I am also planning on purchasing their new Ubtan range products, which are completely made of traditional herbal ingredients, and are adored for their skin-glowing benefits.
It is important to remember that as you age, it’s essential to take extra effort and care of your skin and hair health. If you are on the look-out for healthy cosmetics with natural and safe ingredients, Lotus Botanicals is your answer.
