Lakme CC Complexion Care Cream Review & Swatch

Review on Lakme Complexion Care Cream (CC Cream)

Hey Gals,
    The day is so busy and I am literally running short of time trying to catch up with my regular chores. Only mornings I get the mood for ‘talking, talking and talking’ telling all stories to my mum and finally reaching office late than usual :D
I am not gonna jabber here and drag…Today’s post is all about the new CC Cream from the Lakme range. Lakme is the first brand to launch their CC cream from the BB cream bandwagon and laid my hands on it in the previous haul post. After using it for a couple of times I am reviewing …..and here goes


Lakme CC Complexion Care Cream claims:

All in 1 Instant Skin Stylist with SPF 20 that instantly
  • Protects
  • Moisturizes
  • Brightens
  • Even Skin tone
  • Conceals
  • Freshens

This instant skin stylist brings together all the goodness of your daily skin cream with just the right touch of makeup to give you skin that looks styles by an expert every day.

Usage:
For best results dab over cleansed skin & blend in till absorbed for instant brightness & a perfect finish. Use every day.

Shades:
Beige – for fair to wheatish complexion
Bronze – for dusky complexion



Ingredients:
Loaded with chemicals.

My View:
Let me confess now, I am totally and my skin is in love with the Ponds BB Cream so I wanted something that works as good as the Ponds one or something better than that.

Packaging:
Cute and attractive one with long and sleek nude color tube with a silver screw top. It is hygienic and easy to squeeze the cream out of it.

Texture/ Fragrance:
The shade I Chose is bronze and it perfectly matches my skin tone. It is soft and buttery as well as thick. The fragrance of the CC cream is not so strong but I like it.

Blend/ Coverage:
This CC Cream is easy to blend and gets absorbed soon without leaving a ghosty or ashy cast on skin. The coverage is medium to light more than enough for daily office use.



I first tried the CC cream without applying moisturizer as my skin is oily and acne prone. But the skin showed little dryness around cheek area. So tried with mixing a little hydrating cream and CC cream and the effect was good. But the first time I took a lot of the CC cream and it was a made up look.
The next time I got it right with bright and a fresh even skin look but… the staying power is so less. As my skin is oily it hardly stayed without shine just for 3 to 4 hours even with compact on. Then it required blotting. It is suitable to wear on evenings’ weekends out but not for regular office use to sit for 9 hours.
The Lakme CC cream has not labeled as non pore clogging hence I am skeptical in using on my skin as it is acne prone and even a usual breakout irks me that this CC cream has caused it.




I am so sorry for the poor lighting in the pictures.. will soon do a FOTD of the CC Cream.

Price: 250 Rs for 30 ml

The goodies:
  • Shade perfectly suits me
  • Easy to blend
  • Texture
  • Coverage
  • As concealer
  • Evens skin tone
  • Bight and fresh look
  • SPF 20
  • Fragrance


The bads:
  • Price
  • Shade availability
  • Poor moisturizing
  • Oily and does not control shine
  • Poor staying
  • No label as non pore clogging
On the whole if you have a great skin and topping it with Lakme CC cream would do wonders. If like mine(oily and acne prone), I would not recommend you to even try out for its price. 


Love,
Adity
