My Experience with Lakme Whitening Rose Powder with Sunscreen White Rose:
Lakme Whitening Rose Powder comes in a normal grey-white round jar with a cap. Inside the jar, it has a plastic tray sifter that provides the right amount of product. Also, there is a round applicator puff with a holder. It’s a soft and gentle puff but I don’t prefer to use it to blend the powder. It can’t provide an even look.
Let me clarify, I am not promoting any whitening stuff and I don’t support such claims. The product has the ‘whitening’ tag but it is actually a universal translucent powder which claims to provides a fresh and bright complexion. It doesn’t really claim to make skin white.
So basically, it is a fresh white powder that has a fine texture. I have medium tanned skin tone and it works pretty well for me as it doesn’t leave any white cast on the face. It is good for all skin tones as it basically acts as a setting powder. Or, you can use it as your everyday face powder. Initially, it looks a little white on the face, but once I blend it properly, it starts to set nicely.
It provides light coverage, which is nice for everyday looks, but can’t hide any spots or pigmentation. The powder is finely milled, hence feels so smooth on the skin and blends well with a brush. It provides decently soft and smooth skin. It also adds a fresh and bright glow. Also, it has a nice floral fragrance.
Its lightweight texture never feels patchy but extra layering does make it patchy and then it looks a little cakey as well. So, you have to apply it properly. I have oily skin and it works well to keep my skin oil-free. It is not hydrating, though. During this dry season, my cheeks feel a little dry and this powder can’t provide enough hydration.
Still, I would say that it works pretty well for me. But if you have dry skin, then you need a moisturizing base. It might highlight your dry flakes too. I use it to set my eye area and T-zone. It works well for me but again if you have dry skin or apply extra layers, then it will leave a white cast. Otherwise, a normal light hand application provides a fresh, silky and matte finish that lasts long. It helps prevent creasing as well. I can use it even on my bare face to make my skin look fresh and bright.
I am not sure how it’ll work during summers. But for now, it stays on the skin for around 5-6 hours and keeps the skin shine-free for long. It never creases and never settles into the fine lines. It keeps the skin fresh and smooth for long. Overall, according to its affordable price, it is definitely a nice loose powder. It contains SPF as well but cannot really keep skin protected from sun damage.
