Hope you all are fine. Here I am with another face product review. Well, frankly speaking when you are in a corporate world, you need to look presentable. You need to prep up your face daily in the morning even when your eyes are not opening. Trust me, girls, of course, there are a number of pros of the corporate world. But even then on chilly winter mornings when you can’t take bath; you have to load your face with makeup to look refined and crisp. But even then I just don’t like loading my face with so much of makeup. I am a girl who relies more on my skincare than makeup. So, most of my time and purchases go in skincare than makeup. But thanks to makeup industry they have come up with an innovative product like BB and CC cream.
BB and CC Creams are the perfect balance between a moisturiser and a foundation. Moisturisers can be a good skin care product but are not good in terms of coverage and thus it can’t be used as a makeup product. Similar is the story for foundations. They are mostly heavier in texture and thus not good for everyday usage. And that’s why CC creams came into existence.
So, recently I bought a CC cream in the market. This is the Lakme CC cream in a bronze shade. Read the review to find out if it’s worth your skin or not.
What company says…
Goodness of skin care and make-up SPF 20 protection Evens out skin tone Instant brightening effect Light and creamy texture Blends easily Moisturizes, conceals and refreshes;The added advantage of the Lakme CC cream is the SPF 20 which offers great sun protection. It conceals and evens out skin tone. The quick absorb formula does not feel heavy on your skin at all. Want to do make up but still don’t want to look overdone? The solution – Lakme Complexion Care Cream. Perfectly amalgamating the goodness of your daily cream with just the right hint of make-up, Lakme CC cream gives you a flawless radiant look. It acts like your very own stylist and delivers an instant brightening effect.
How to use :
Squeeze out the cream out of the tube by gently pressing it. Once the crème comes out apply it on dots all over your face. Join those dots to get an even finish on face.
In the mirror of my own experience
Lakme CC cream comes in a skin colour packaging. It comes in two shades – bronze and beige. It has product claims and other details mentioned on the tube. It has a shiny silver cap which needs to be twisted to bring the cream out.
The texture of the cream is light and creamy. The cream gets easily blended on skin without leaving a whitish cast. Since I have a dry skin so I always use a moisturiser underneath. In summers or oily skin, you can easily skip moisturisers.
Lakme CC Cream is very comfortable to use. Let me begin with dry skin. Firstly it is cream based, so it gets very easily blended. It feels very comfortable and light on the skin so you will not feel uploaded on the face. I am an extremely dry skinned girl and for me, i need to moisturise my skin underneath because without that I felt that my skin turns into flakes. But that is only because I have too dry skin. But once you apply the moisturiser this bb cream blends like a dream.
Coming to the longevity part, a little product is enough for the entire face. So, a single tube will last you long enough. Also, this bb cream will easily resist your sweat entire day. Once when you wipe the cream with a makeup remover then only it goes. Else with me, it survives the entire day. Well, I sit in an AC environment and so it survives. I don’t know what will happen in an outside environment.
