Hope you all are enjoying the summer season, but it can take a heavy toll on your skin if proper care is not taken, especially for women with acne-prone/sensitive skin. I have normal to combination skin and in summer, it tends to get oily, so I choose my moisturizer very carefully. Recently, when I saw this new launch from Lakme in their “Perfect Radiance” range, I bought this light crème instantly. I have been using it for 10-11 days and thought of -reviewing it.

My Experience with Lakme Perfect Radiance Intense Whitening Light Creme:
Let me start with the packaging. I totally adore it, the jar is lovely pink in color with a silver screw cap. The jar is made of plastic and is lightweight. I love the way how Lakme has evolved as a skin care brand over the years. The consistency is very smooth and creamy. It is a gel creme with a feather-like texture. I have never used Lotus Herbals gel creme, but always wanted to try one. I have read a lot about gel crèmes and how they are a boon to problematic skin. True to its name, it indeed is a very light cream. It spreads on my skin like butter and gets absorbed quickly and does not leave any oily residue. It moisturizes my skin well, but the hydration level would not be sufficient for dry skinned beauties.
I use it daily – day and night, although there is a separate night cream too, but could not find it in the market. During the day, I apply it under my sunscreen and it keeps my face moisturized for 8 hours. It does not break me out, although initially I noticed a few small red bumps, but they were gone within a day, I guess my skin was getting used to a new cream. During the night, I apply it after cleansing and toning. One or two times, I applied it along with some essential oils, it kept my skin in a good condition, but one needs deep moisturization in the night.
It does not lighten complexion, but does give a subtle glow with continuous usage. The biggest con is its ingredients list – it contains a lot of chemicals and parabens *scared* Also, sometimes it feels artificial, but overall, I am happy with the results.
