Skinutra GVC White Lotion Review & Swatch-
As far as skin care with “whitening” tag goes, I generally dislike & steer clear of them since they are mostly packed with harmful bleaching agents which harm the skin more than caring for it. But Skinutra GVC White Lotion has an impressive array of skin caring ingredients like Collagen, Vitamin C & peptides which help to keep the skin youthful while brightening it & that’s why I agreed to try it out when the brand sent the product 🙂 Read on to know more.
What Skinutra Says-
SKINUTRA GVC White Lotion combining Glutathione, Vitamin C, Collagen Peptides and provitamins that whitens intensively. Glutathione and Vitamin C are anti oxidants which prevent skin damage due to environmental stress. Glutathione stimulates collagen and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Brightens and smoothes skin for a more radiant and youthful skin. Glutathione blocks thyrosine enzyme that melanin production gets reduced. Skin looks fairer and reduces hyper pigmentation, blemishes and acne spots. Thus skin looks firmness and elasticity of the skin, promotes soft and supple skin.

My take on the Skinutra GVC White Lotion-
The packaging is very good I have to admit 🙂 The transparent plastic bottle is very sleek & sturdy with a good quality pump dispenser. It is both very easy to use & travel with 🙂
The lotion is tinted, lightweight in texture & it is a boon for the oilier skin types really. It gets absorbed into the skin in a jiffy without leaving behind any tacky/greasy residue. Skin looks fresher & brighter with a dewy glow. It is actually a type of CC cream really 🙂 I have quite dry skin nowadays so I do have to hydrate my skin really well beforehand otherwise it highlights the dry patches near my nose & forehead.
I have been using this lotion for around a month & have seen a definite lightening of my old acne scars near my chin so it does work as claimed. I do not have much of a tan at the moment so cannot say how much it works on it but I dare say I will find out in the summer. It also claims to work on wrinkles & fine lines but I have not seen much of a difference yet. Maybe in the long run I will. It does make my skin look bright, fresh & provides slight dewy coverage.
The fragrance is terrible & very off-putting for me 😐 It has a strong, sweet, medicine smell which lingers on & on & makes me want to gag :'( This is the only reason I had put off using this lotion for a long, long time.
Pros of the Skinutra GVC White Lotion:
1> Travel & user friendly pump packaging 🙂
2> Lightweight- suitable for all skin types.
3> Does not leave any tacky/greasy residue on skin.
4> Does brighten skin & old acne marks over time.
5> Provides slight coverage & has a nice, dewy glow.
Cons of the Skinutra GVC White Lotion:
Terrible overwhelming fragrance.
Highlights dry skin patches.
Swatch of the Skinutra GVC White Lotion-
My Rating: 4.2/5!
Do I recommend the Skinutra GVC White Lotion?
Skinutra GVC White Lotion is an effective brightening lotion with very good ingredients like Collagen & Vitamin C which do help to make skin look brighter, fresher & can be used by all skin types owing to its nice & lightweight texture. I do like it a lot as it doubles up as a CC cream for me & would have repurchased even had it not been for the sickening smell. Generally strongly fragranced products for sensitive skin are a big no-no s they tend to react 😐 Otherwise, it is a very good day time lotion!
