Hi girls 🙂 Today I am back with another product review. This time it is a face wash from my favorite Lotus Herbals – Lotus Herbals Jojobawash Active Milli Capsules Nourishing face wash. I had used Lotus Herbals Berryscrub Strawberry & Aloe Vera Exfoliating face wash previously and totally loved it. So when I went out of that strawberry face wash, I wanted to get another one, but it was out of stock. So I was looking for another Lotus Herbals face wash as an alternative and spotted this Lotus Herbals Jojobawash Active Milli Capsules Nourishing face wash. This ‘Active Milli Capsule’ thing got me excited & I decided to give it a try. Moreover, the face wash claims to be ‘Nourishing Face Wash’. Back then it was winter, so this claim also pushed me to pick it up!
Lotus Herbals Jojobawash Active Milli Capsules Nourishing face wash contains jojoba oil. Jojoba oil is an amazing skin care ingredient. It is known as ‘Gold of Desert’. Jojoba oil moisturizes the skin without clogging the pores & gives healthy, naturally glowing skin. It fights against wrinkles, stretch marks and effective in treating acne. Jojoba oil is also a very good cleanser. So let’s check out how this face wash that comes with all these goodness of jojoba oil, fared me.

What Lotus Herbals Jojobawash Active Milli Capsules Nourishing face wash claims
My experience with Lotus Herbals Jojobawash Active Milli Capsules Nourishing face wash
Lotus Herbals Jojobawash Active Milli Capsules Nourishing face wash comes in a yellow colored plastic tube which is transparent near the cap. The cap is a yellow colored flip open cap. The cap is okay, but because of the face wash’s very runny consistency, I won’t say that it is safe to carry. The product leaks out the tube most of the time.
This face wash looks like a transparent gel, but the consistency is super runny. Small multicolored beads (blue, purple, yellow) can be seen floating in the gel, which they describe as ‘Active Milli Capsules’. These active milli capsules contain the herbal extracts of jojoba, avocado and vitamin E. Jojoba gently cleanses the skin & moisturizes it. Avocado makes skin soft and supple, while vitamin E helps skin to retain its natural moisture.
The smell of this face wash is quite pleasant. And mild too. I love the smell as it has a refreshing feeling in it.
Now coming to the application, it requires a pea sized amount to wash the face. As the face wash is very runny, so it doesn’t come off quickly. It effectively removes dirt, oil and grim from the face, but you won’t get that squeaky clean feeling. Again blame that on its runny consistency! Be careful with the amount of face wash you are taking out, because a little more than the required amount might give you a slippery feeling on the face post wash.
Coming to the active milli capsules, they are pretty and cute multicolored beads present in the face wash. You are supposed to crush those capsules and mix it with the face wash and just apply it on the face. But because of the runny gel consistency of the face wash, it becomes very tough to crush those capsules. Moreover, the capsules are very less compared to the amount of face wash. So most of the time, you won’t get any beads coming out with the face wash. These active milli capsules claim to contain jojoba oil, vitamin E & avocado which nourish the skin, but unfortunately I could not feel any nourishment on my skin.
As I mentioned earlier, I bought this face wash back in winter because it claims to be a nourishing face wash. But instead of providing any nourishment, this face wash made my skin dry and stretchy. So much so that I stopped using it until summer arrived. For summer, it’s a decent face wash though. I got combination skin & it keeps my t-zone oil free for an hour or so.
Overall this Lotus Herbals Jojobawash Active Milli Capsules Nourishing face wash is just another regular face wash. Of all the Lotus Herbals product that I have used so far, this face wash is the first product that couldn’t satisfy me at all. It doesn’t live upto its claim to be a nourishing face wash, neither the active milli capsules work for me. Its super runny consistency is another thing I don’t like at all. I would suggest everyone to skip this in winter. You can give it a go in summer though.
