What I about the product

- The packaging is travel-friendly. The tube is leak proof, convenient to carry and the flip top cap makes it easier to regulate the amount of product you need to apply.
What I don’t like about the product

- Lotus Herbals Safe Sun De-Tan After Sun Face Pack does not work on old and stubborn tan.
- Lotus Herbals Safe Sun De-Tan After Sun Face Pack claims to lighten complexion. However, it is not effective on dark spots and hyperpigmentation.
- This product contains parabens.Parabens are a class of preservatives used in the cosmetic industry and concerns have been raised about their effect on health.Those who avoid using products with parabens will not be happy with the ingredient list.
Verdict: Lotus Herbals Safe Sun De-Tan After Sun Face is an effective face mask that removes sun tan effectively. However, it is important to be regular with its use and it should be applied at least twice a week. It is not very helpful on stubborn tan and should be used along with other products and home remedies to get rid of old tan.
Overall, the results are good and this face pack is helpful in maintaining skin tone.
- Detan packs are must have products in skin care routine and should be used along with sunscreens to keep skin healthy and reduce sun damage.
- It is important to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily irrespective of the weather conditions to protect the skin from sun rays that cause tanning, premature aging, and even skin cancer.
