Hope everyone is doing fine. Today, I will be reviewing the day cream from Lakme’s latest skin care range – Youth Infinity. Let’s see whether this product is worth the money.
Youth Infinity Day Cream turns around the clock with its unique skin firming ability. The cream blends easily. Comes with an SPF 15, it protects skin from pollution and the harsh sun rays. The product is packed with the goodness of skin enhancing ingredients such as peptides and retinols which bring back your youthful skin to give you a younger looking skin day by day. Glycerin retains the moisture and suppleness of the skin. It is an excellent skin tightener which also brightens the skin tone. Use Lakme Youth Infinity Day Crème every day to an endless younger looking skin.

My Experience with Lakme Youth Infinity Skin Firming Day Creme SPF 15 PA++:
To start with, this cream claims to bring back your twenties’s glow and sculpt your face,I am only 21, so I can’t really comment on how it works to bring back your “scultped youthful skin,” but the sculpting tag attracted me, so I bought it. The product comes in a beautiful violet, sleek, shiny reflective packaging with a silver cap, similar to their CC cream. The cap is sturdy and the tube is very travel friendly. The cream itself is of medium consistency and white in color. When applied, it has extremely subtle shiny and shimmery particles to it that can’t be seen unless you are under harsh lighting that adds a temporary glow to the skin. I have combination skin that is more oily towards summers, but since we are having never-ending monsoons here in Kolkata, it is combination for quite some time. The first day I bought it, my mom used it and said it is so oily :/ I got worried because if it is oily on her dry and mature skin, then it must be extremely greasy on me. Later, I washed my face and applied it and didn’t feel anything for around 10 minutes, but then my face started feeling greasy and I could see small sweat beads on my forehead. I blotted my face and it felt okay, but around an hour later, I felt really greasy and I was afraid it would break me out, so I had to wash my face again :/ It definitely does not control oil nor is it oil free. It is not for oily-combination skin girls at all, it would be perfect for dry skinned women and might be good for normal skin with a bit of blotting. Anyway, I have used it several times since then and the longest I could bear that greasy feeling was for 8 hours because it was a really rainy and cold day. I can’t imagine how greasy it will feel in hot summers *shakes head*
I think I can use it during winters when skin feels really dry, anyway I really think this one is made for 30+ women who have dry skin. I don’t think combination/oily skin women will like it. Coming to its claims of sculpting or bringing “‘youth’s glow,” they must be referring to the oil on your skin as ”glow” so yes, your skin definitely will glow and shine like a tubelight due to oil buildup and microshimmer in it :p but after washing my face, it looks slightly better, but that’s because of the heavy moisture content, not because of “youth glow,” similar to how a face pack works. It does not sculpt skin or anything, but maybe my skin is not very old and I have not worn it for very long to comment on that. It didn’t break me out by the way, so that’s a pro. It has a fragrance that is very overpowering and a big turn off, it gives me a headache. It comes in 2 sizes and I am so glad I bought the smaller tube, not the huge tub, and good for people who want to try before buying. All in all, it’s not a good purchase at all.
