My experience using the Lakme Gel crème:
I know I am a little late reviewing this product although I have been using it since 4 months. Lakme launched this new Skin Gloss collection around 6 months back which contains this gel crème, Overnight mask and a Reflection serum. The range targets all the age groups of women who prefer light textured skin care products that provide well hydrated dewy finish for the skin.
I picked this crème during the hot dry summers when I was on a lookout for a light weight everyday use face crème that provided needed moisturization to my face without making me sweat a lot.
Generally the heavy textured crèmes, I had used prior to this, does give a matte look with a white brightened effect although they are drying too at times. Those crèmes tend to cover your face so you sweat less and face look brightened. This crème has a very light gel texture, as the name suggests which instantly gets absorbed into your skin giving a slight dewy look but that is it. Your face doesn’t look brightened in any way. Your face doesn’t look like covered with anything, it just seems very natural, as if nothing is applied but added with a slight shine. J
I find the Lakme gel crème just adding the right hydration to the skin and prepare the face before putting your makeup on. It provides zero coverage and makes your matte effect BB/CC crème to get applied evenly.
I had used it in hot, humid and a bit cool weather and I find it just perfect to apply on a daily basis after cleaning my face in the morning. Slight dryness is instantly taken care off but if you have some tough dry patches then this crème won’t help much.
Only a pea sized amount is enough for 1-time application. Re-applying on harsh dry patches won’t work much is what I judged though the crème still don’t seem heavy at all even if you use more than needed or re-apply.
The black glossy packaging with the green cap looks elegant and is travel friendly. This one pack will last you for 4-5 months easily so getting at this price, it seems pocket friendly too. I can see the effect of the crème last easily for several hours on me.
- Gel like texture
- Gets absorbed instantly
- Gives a slight dewy look
- Provided needed hydration.
- Pea sized amount needed for one time application.
- Suitable for all skin types.
- Effect stays on for several hours.
- Is a nice base for your matte BB/CC crèmes
- Pocket friendly
- Nice, travel friendly packing.
- Won’t work much on dry patches on your face.
- Even after using since long, I haven’t seen much change in my skin texture after using this (though the brand also doesn’t claim anything except hydration)
Final Word:If you are looking for a daily use crème that provides instant hydration without any coverage then definitely go for this crème. It will suit all skin types almost all the year round. People with very dry skin may not find this crème giving needed moisturisation in the harsh winters though.
