Not many day creams work for my oily skin. Most of them break me out or start perspiring after a few hours of application. That’s the only reason why I always stick to Aloe Vera Gels. But recently I got to try the Lakme Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Lightening Light Crème which was gifted by my mom so I couldn’t ignore using it. I have been testing out for the past couple of days, so today I am ready to share my thoughts on it. Let’s get started with the details.
Price: Rs.350 for 50 gm
Availability: Widely available in Lakme Counters.
My take on Lakme Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Lightening Light Crème SPF 20 PA++ :
Lakme Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Lightening Light Crème comes in a silver plastic jar with a secure inner lid and a screw type top lid. The look of the tub really makes up for the price we pay as it does look luxurious and is shining like a star. However the bulky size makes it not so travel friendly even though the jar cap is secured well.
The lightening crème is pale pink in color and has an airy gel-cream consistency that is neither too thick nor too thin. The cream spreads effortless on the skin and feels somewhat silicony making it a good canvas for makeup. A pea sized amount of the cream was enough for the entire face, so the tub lasted me long.
Immediately upon application, my skin feels silky smooth and instantly brightened giving a non-greasy matte finish. I find the crème to be super light on the skin and does not feel heavy, not even a tiny bit. On days when I have this cream alone on my face, my oily skin stays matte for about 2 hours after which it starts becoming oily on my T-zones. If I top it with a compact, the oiliness does not peek through for a good amount of time.
The brightening effect stayed as long as the cream was on my face however there was no long term skincare benefits when used regularly. It hydrated my oily skin but ladies with dry or normal skin might find it not to be moisturizing, so a heavy moisturizer on top of this would be necessary for them. The crème has an SPF 20 PA ++ which is decent for a day cream. If you are someone who stays indoors, this SPF would be enough to protect the skin from the sun rays with constant re-application. Personally I didn’t face any major changes or effects with this cream.
