If you need proof of how much I am obsessed with my skin being totally clean, you need to peep into my shower closet. There are scrubs, scrubs and more scrubs. There’s one for after sun exposure, one for summers, one for when I have breakouts and so on and so forth. Since I have only just now started incorporating anti-ageing products, a friend recommended the Lotus Herbals Youth RX Active Anti Ageing Foaming Gel. And that is what I am going to be telling all you lovely ladies about today…

In Detail Lotus Herbals YOUTH Rx Active Anti Ageing Foaming Gel Review and My Experience
The foaming gel comes in a sturdy plastic easy squeezy tube with a screw-shut cap – I so wish it came with an usual flip-top cap! Here I have to unscrew the whole damn thing with wet hands and screw it back. The gel is not really a clear ‘gel’, but a light peach creamy-textured fluid with orange micro-beads and very runny in texture. The micro-beads result in a very pleasing scrubbing action, neither harsh nor useless and the gel spreads evenly and easily on my damp face and neck.. They are soft and cannot be sensed on the skin.
The face wash gel is slightly runny in texture and feels very lightweight. Initially it doesn’t foam much but as you keep on massaging it onto your skin, it keeps on foaming more and more. Less foam also means fewer amounts of SLS in it which is really good. So I end up massaging my skin for longer than the stipulated 2 minutes. The skin looks and feels fresh, soft and revitalized – as compared to other drug store face washes. While it was a better experience than the other over-soapy facewashes, I am not so sure it walks the talk on its anti-ageing claims. I really did not see anything earth-shattering. For me, this is an average product – I have seen a few like this before and there is nothing unusual.
How I Use it
I dampen my face and use it without foaming on my hands – I’d rather the foaming action happen on my facial skin. Besides, I always make it a point to apply toner or serum afterwards.
I use it twice a day once in the morning and once in the evening. I had been using this face wash for a month now and I can see only a slight difference and improvement on my skin tone instantly after washing my face. I will be honest – the dullness is definitely removed from the skin and it looks fresh – but it also dries the skin. I need to follow up with a toner or moisturizer almost immediately. Lotus Herbals Youth RX Active Anti Ageing Foaming Gel does make me looks fairer but that lasts only for about 2-3 hours.
