Lakme Perfect Radiance Intense Whitening Compact with SPF 23

Hello Gorgeous Ladies,

The product I am reviewing today is Lakme Perfect Radiance Intense Whitening Compact with SPF 23. It has been quite a while since I am using this compact and I find it value for money.

My take on Lakme Perfect Radiance Intense Whitening Compact with SPF 23:

I have always been comfortable with Lakme when it comes to compact although there are better alternatives available. I have a combination skin which tends to break out and hence I prefer products which are light on my face and which don’t clog my pores. Lakme Perfect Radiance Intense Whitening Compact with SPF 23 is a perfect compact for my skin. It is perfect for everyday use as it doesn’t give cakey looking appearance. It is light and blends well with the skin. As always, no product can be perfect to the core. This compact does not work that well in giving a pearly glow or doesn’t lighten the skin tone as Lakme claims. It does give a superficial appearance of fairer skin but that doesn’t last for longer duration. It gives a matte finish and helps to control oil throughout the day with repetitive application. It has SPF 23 which makes it comes back in the lead. So, even if you forget to apply your sunscreen (which you shouldn’t), you can just apply this compact and let the SPF in it do its work. All in all, it is a good compact for daily use and does add a few tones of whiteness to the complexion which is temporary.

Cons of Lakme Perfect Radiance Intense Whitening Compact with SPF 23:

Thanks for the timely review. I recently ordered the Lakme Perfect Radiance Compact from an online site and was expecting the same product that I was using earlier (with the golden flower motif on the cover) But I was very surprised to receive this compact and i thought I got send a fake one! I complained to the site manager but he assured me that this was genuine. I was further worried because it was not listed anywhere in the lakme website. Though i kept it I was apprehensive about using it untill now. But after reading your review I am feeling much relieved and would use my one too. :D

I have been considering buying a compact and wanted to start with something low budget. Thanks for reviewing this, Mayuri. :D I am going to give it a try. Is it okay for people who have normal skin during summer?
