Product Review - Lakme CC Cream

Lakme CC Cream

   Reviewing the Lakme CC i.e Complexion Care Cream which has become an integral part of my beauty regimen without which I seldom step outside my house.
   A CC cream is the perfect combination of a daily skin cream with complexion corrector pigments which even out the skin tone. In addition to this, CC creams may or may not have properties of anti-aging, skin hydration or SPF protection.

Lakme CC Cream

   The Lakme CC Cream comes in 2 shades - The lighter Beige (for fair to wheatish complexion) and the darker Bronze (for dusky complexion) shade. The one which I use and am reviewing here is the Bronze shade.

Lakme CC Cream


   I have been using the Lakme CC Cream since more than 6 months now, though not on a daily basis but only when I need to step out of my home or when I have to take pictures for reviewing products! Here, I must say that am thoroughly impressed by the way it makes my skin look and feel.
  
   Few points to stress upon for application of the CC Cream:
- One thing that many women forget is that the cream should be applied on the neck as well so that the skin tone of the face and neck match with each other. 
- I've noticed that I get better result when applying the product by the "dot" method or with the help of a makeup brush rather than by applying it through squeezing the cream in my palms and then applying it.
 - The cream does not need to be applied with any other moisturizer, although for people with excessively dry skin, it can be used after mixing it in a proportion of 1:1 with a moisturizer.

   Pros:
- Wonderful packaging with a cute outer pink box.
- The cream tube is handy and is easy to carry.
- Saves time as it combines the properties of a cream with a foundation/concealer.
- Blends with the skin to give a very natural look.
- Feels very light on skin.
- Stays on for long.
- Provides good coverage for acne, dark spots, uneven complexion.
- Easy to apply.
- Direction for usage are shown very nicely on a card inside the box.
- Provides protection from sun. (SPF 20)
- Cost effective considering it works as a foundation/concealer as well.

   Cons:
- Although the cream contains glycerin, which helps to keep the skin well moisturized, it causes drying of skin for me in winters.
- Wish it was available in more shades to suit women with darker skin tone.
- Won't hide extreme pigmentation, although it helps in lightening it.


My near perfect complexion all thanks to Lakme CC Cream


   Verdict: 4.5/5. Definitely going to repurchase as well as recommend it to others! 

   Works perfectly for me. The CC cream instantly evens out my complexion, hiding acne scars and gives my skin a clear, radiant and glowing look.
