Suganda White Lotus Moisturiser

I had already shared my quick thoughts about the Suganda White Lotus Moisturiser on our Instagram page a while back, but I wanted to document my experience on the blog too for my reference and for any one else who like me still likes to read blogs. 

I have combination skin & during the hot humid Indian summer I prefer using products that are not too heavy. Last summer I was in search of a few light products & picked up the Suganda White Lotus Moisturiser after seeing a lot of good reviews. 


The moisturiser comes in a glass bottle with a pump packaging - the packaging feels sturdy & I like the pump mechanism. There is a cap which is to be put over the pump which I hated - because it is one of those which have a slit and can only be put in one direction. Kinda annoying, but I am willing to let it go. 

What I liked :⠀
  • Spreads well. 
  • The fragrance is mild (I however, did not like the smell a lot). They have an unscented variant too and I think that I should have gone for that. 
  • I like that they have the option of an unscented variant for anyone who is sensitive to fragrance or in general prefers unscented skincare products. 
  • I liked the pump mechanism. It ensures that the product is getting exposed to air. ⠀
  • The product has good ingredients like niacinamide, lotus extract, glycerin, vit B5. 
  • It is priced well - INR 750 for 50 ml

What I 
didn't like : ⠀
  • Unfortunately it broke me out. I was using it everyday in the morning for 2 weeks & I started getting breakouts & small comedones. It wasn't purging, more of bigger slightly painful isolated breakouts. 
  • As a moisturiser it did not make my skin as supple and hydrated as I like it to be. It doesn't have enough emollients & occlusive ingredients to work as a proper moisturiser. Consider this almost like a 3 % Niacinamide serum in a gel consistency
  • While it absorbs fairly quickly, it leaves a slightly weird feeling behind. I cannot describe it accurately.... slightly tacky but not the good tacky feeling. I didn't like how it felt on my skin. 
  • I cannot say if it helps in fading dark spots or not because I stopped using it immediately once the breakouts started & I did not have the courage to test it out on my face again.⠀

Overall Thoughts :

This might be better suited for people who have quite oily skin (the formula is oil free). And even then 
I think it is better to treat it as a niacinamide serum rather than a moisturiser. 
It will not work as a moisturiser for normal or dry skin. The product claims to be deeply hydrating but I did not find this to be true. 

Sometimes I cannot help but wonder if there are others too who had a bad experience with this product. I was quite disappointed especially because I have seen so many positive reviews and was expecting it to work for me - but then again, skincare is very subjective and sometimes products that are much loved & raved about might just not work for you. 
Please keep in mind that this is my personal experience with the product. It might or might not work out for you.
