At this point, I have no new excuse for not posting regularly. Kindly accept my apologies.
Today’s review is on a body lotion. I must say for the past 2 years, give or take, I have not used any body lotion. I may have tried out one or two just for reviews, but my last real lotion was A bonne lotion which was back in 2019. You can read my review on that here.
I started searching for lotions a few months ago around when the weather was hot and oils left me feeling a bit sticky. After watching some reviews on Youtube, I decided to give Golden Face Beauty Milk a try.
Product Details: Golden Face Beauty Milk is a product of G.F.C Limited. I do not know so much about the brand but other products in the range include Face cream and serum.
Price: 3,500 naira for 250ml. Price may vary based on your location.
Ingredients: Aqua, Mineral oil, Kojic acid, Petrolatum, Stearic Acid, Stearyl Alcohol, Isopropyl Myristate, Lemon extracts, Clotrimazole 0.05%, Citric acid, Silicon fluid, EDTA, Propylparaben, Methylparaben, Fragrance
My Experience: One of the things I like to look for in lotions is the ability to use them on both the face and body. Personally, it saves me time and money which is why I liked this lotion. I still have not finished the first bottle and to be honest, I have a lot of good things to say about this lotion.
I noticed, after 2 weeks, how moisturized and smooth my skin looked. I was glowing and honestly, lighter than I was a few weeks back.
Another great thing about lotions, which is an advantage lotions have over oils, is that they help even out my skin. This lotion evened out my skin tone, leaving my skin looking smooth. To be candid, it worked, but I may or may not purchase this lotion again.
- Brightens and evens the skin tone.
- Moisturizing without being heavy.
- Effective and very active.
- I kinda like the smell. It’s not bad.
- Gives this pale yellow glow to the skin that is absolutely beautiful.
- This lotion contains Clotrimazole.
Does Golden Face Lotion Contain Hydroquinone?
- No, Golden Face does not contain Hydroquinone. Although, it is worth noting that it has Clotrimazole.
What are the side effects of Rich and Pure Lotion?
- There are no known side effects of Golden Face Lotion. It did not give me any issues.
Clotrimazole is an ingredient used in antifungal creams and tablets. It is used to treat fungal infections, yeast infections both on the skin and in other areas. It can also be used to treat contact and perioral dermatitis which is something my skin struggles with. So, in a sense, this lotion was good for my skin because I knew I would not have to worry about reactions and whatnot.
But the other thing is clotrimazole is used alongside steroids or corticosteroids for treatment. Clotrimazole is similar to a topical steroid. It is usually advised to use these ingredients for a short period of time as they would cause skin thinning after a while.
When I started using this lotion, I honestly had no idea about this until recently and I had to do a bit of research on this. I do not recommend using this lotion for a long period of time. It is better used for a short period of time.
Do your own research on products you buy before using them.
Until my next post! Kisses!
