Lakme has introduced quite a few products in the recent months with the “Lakme Absolute” range and then they even revamped and had certain additions to the “Lakme Perfect Radiance” range. Lakme Absolute has all makeup stuff and Lakme Radiance range has skin care stuff. I got the opportunity to use and test the Lakme Perfect Radiance 4-Week Intense Whitening Capsules Treatment. Let’s see whether it worked out for me or not:
- A luxurious, lightweight serum that effortlessly seeps into your skin, leaving it perfectly radiant.
- Each capsule contains a power dose of skin lightening ingredients that work in synergy to help prevent spots and enhance skin’s natural radiance.
- With pure Vitamin C which is encapsulated in Microsponge which helps in continuously releasing potent skin lightening vitamins into your skin’s epidermal cells, through the day.
- With regular usage, this intensive 4-week treatment fights the 6 fairness blocks.
- Get perfectly fair skin with continuous use.
Rs. 1250 for 28 capsules (each capsule weighing 0.33 gm).
How To Use:
Step 1: Twist and snap the narrow end of the capsule.
Step 2: Release the serum in your palm.
Step 3: Apply small dots of the serum all over your face – forehead, cheekbones, chin and neck. Apply the serum by lightly dabbing it onto your skin.
Step 4: For optimal results, follow with Lakme Perfect Radiance UV Day Creme or Night Creme as may be relevant.
My Take on Lakme Perfect Radiance 4-Week Intense Whitening Capsules Treatment:
We had received the sturdy-looking plastic tub containing 28 capsules in a black vanity case. I don’t think that the vanity case is given out to everyone who buys the treatment capsules 😛 I now use that vanity case to store my hair clips and tic-tacs 😛
With respect to the packaging, enough measures are taken so that the serum inside the capsules doesn’t get easily exposed to light or heat. There are 28 capsules in this tub which is covered by a plastic lid.
The capsules are grey in color and can be nipped easily at the neck to take out the serum. Each capsule contains 0.33 gm of the serum which is yellow-gold in colour.
Since this is a 4-week treatment and there are 28 capsules provided, one capsule should be used per day religiously and followed up with either Lakme Perfect Radiance UV Day Creme or Night Creme. Throughout the treatment, I used these capsules during the day time only and hence I followed it up with the day cream from the same range.
Unlike other serums available in the market, this one is not sticky, gooey, or oily. In fact, it feels very silky when I apply it on my face and disappears within seconds without leaving any sort of residue. It blended effortlessly into the skin. I then followed it up with the day cream and did not feel any heaviness or discomfort through the day because of the serum.
However, I do think that the serum provided in one capsule is not enough for the entire face and neck area. Even though the people at Lakme might have calculated that 0.33 gm would work per application, I don’t think so. Once when I used two capsules at one go, I thought it worked much better in terms that it covered my entire face.
Also, once during my acne phase, it stung me and that’s because it contains vitamin C. So, if your skin is sensitive to vitamin C, then do remember to do a patch test before.
Also, it is important to follow this serum up with a sunscreen because vitamin C makes skin prone to sun burns.
Coming to the point of whether it actually works, I would say that it did improve my skin tone a bit, but not to a great degree, and definitely not worth 1250 rupees. The 28 capsules provided is far too less to show effectiveness over a span of 4 weeks. It does not clear up blemishes, uneven skin tone, tanning, dark spots, oiliness within 4 weeks; however, it does take care of the dullness part. If it had been two capsules each day, then it would have been much more effective.
I think they should pull down the price and add more capsules to the treatment jar.
