Hi people, since this is MY FIRST PRODUCT REVIEW ever, so naturally I’m damn excited about it. In this post, I’m going to review a night creme. I had never thought that I would ever use a night cream but my job, traveling, stress factor, blogging, all contributed in making my skin flaky, uneven toned, dry and full of blackheads. It was then, I realized that it’s high time I start using a cream at night to replenish and re-hydrate my skin and within a month of using it, I have started seeing some good results.
Why you should use Night Creams?
Let me start by telling you that our skin regeneration rate is much faster at night when we are deep asleep, as compared to the day time. So this makes it very imperative to use a night cream as during night, our skin absorbs the active ingredients of the cream better than it does during the day and renews the facial cells. Also, night creams soothes the face, boost collagen into the skin and help it to restore its elasticity and repairs the damaged cells. So many reasons to use night creams right…! 🙂 Now you may ask is there any difference between night and day creams? I would say, yes. While day time creams are much lighter and usually contain SPF, the night creams are more on the heavier side and more hydrating sans the SPF thing.
How to select a night creme?
There is no sure shot formula as to which cream is best. You just need to keep experimenting with different creams until you find the one which works perfectly for you. But keep in mind that the night cream should not be too thick else it will clog the skin pores. I went to a mall and picked up Lotus Herbal Cream. After using this cream for over a month now, I decided to give it a review.
Product Name : Lotus herbals Nutranite Skin Renewal Nutritive Night crème
Price: Rs 395 for 50 g
Let’s start with what the Product says?
Lotus Herbals Nutranite Night Cream is a luxurious nutrient-rich night crème that helps renew the skin while you sleep. It works with skin’s own repair and replenishment system to undo the damage caused by dehydration and environmental exposure during the day. It boosts skin’s resiliency, strengthens natural defenses while restoring firmness and smoothing imperfections. As a result, skin is supple and renewed in the morning.
This cream comes with a box packaging and when you open it, you will meet with a small super cute yet heavy jar container which has a golden lid at the top. A totally travel friendly and leakage proof product.

How to apply it?
After properly cleaning and toning, take a dime sized nutranite cream in your palms and dab it on to your face and massage it in upward circular direction until the cream is absorbed fully. Simple is that.
What I Feel after using this product?
The cream is white in color, has a very light and silky texture, very soft to touch and is not too greasy. Just take a li’l amount in your palms and gently massage onto your skin. It gets absorbed into the skin completely once you apply it. Since it is infused with fruit fragrance, so I feel so fresh once I apply it. I have been using it since the last one month and is happy with the result. It softens, moisturizes and keeps my skin hydrated. But once I mistakenly applied this cream in excess and it made my face look so oily that I had to use tissue paper to wipe off the excess cream. So remember to use only a small amount of the cream to cover the entire face and neck area for best results. Also, I haven’t experienced any breakout so far after one month of continuous and regular use.
Fragrance: It has a mild and pleasant smell that definitely doesn’t irritate you. Also, since very li’l amount of product is required each time, so this jar can easily lasts up to two and half months. A great value for money indeed.
Consistency: I would say i find this formula neither a cream nor a gel, rather a somewhere in between.
Who should use it?
People with dry/normal/combination skin type: Go for this product, you will love it as it will give your skin the much needed nourishment.
People with oily skin: Please stay away from this product else it will make you look greasy.
My Overall Verdict
Lotus Herbals Nutranite Night Cream work wonders for people with dry, normal and combination skin. However, Oily skin people should stay away from this. Absolutely light in texture and gets absorbed into the skin quickly, softens and moisturizes it without making it greasy while the fruity smell will linger on your skin all night long. However, don’t expect it to brighten your skin or remove fine lines. It is just a skin maintaining and nourishment cream. Try it, you won’t be disappointed.
Yes, I give this cream a good rating of 4/5 and I will definitely repurchase it, will you?
Much Love, Neha
