My Take on this Product –
I got this cream in the hope that it is from Youth Infinity range and is said to be skin firming so it must be working as per its claims. Also, being from Lakme and having such good active ingredients and at such a cost, I wanted it to work. But it didn’t. All hopes and expectations from this cream went into drain with it when I washed this oily cream from my face. First thing, this is super oily, almost greasy. So, all my oily beauties, please stay away from it and don’t get impressed by the brand name or the beautiful packaging or the name or ingredients 🙂
Now, oil is one thing, let’s come to the claims as given by this product. This provides moisturization and is a good option for those who have ultra dry skin texture and it will also suit dry and normal skin types in winters too. For breakouts, yes it caused me breakouts. It does nothing to improve skin texture or skin firming as claimed. It doesn’t lighten skin tone and doesn’t even tone the skin. It has many good ingredients as claimed by Lakme and may be it is working perfectly for some but not for me. The good part about this cream is that it has SPF 15 with PA++.
Actually, I wanted this to work for somebody, so I gave this to my sissy who has normal/ combi skin. She tried it out daily for let’s say 15 days but no effect. In fact, she also felt it is too greasy and oily and is not suiting her at all. It didn’t do much to tightening or lightening claims either.
So, all in all, I do not find this day cream from Lakme any beneficial and according to me, it doesn’t justify the cost it comes at. I don’t recommend it for my skin type and won’t repurchase it.
- It moisturizes and provides hydration.
- Good for dry skin.
- Nice packaging, travel friendly.
- Gives subtle glow but becomes greasy afterwards.
- Contains good active ingredients.
- Doesn’t live upto its claims.
- Not at all suitable for oily skin.
- May not suit normal/ combi skin too.
- Starts becoming greasy after say 20 mins of application.
- Too expensive at the quality offered.
- Active ingredients don’t seem to work effectively.
- Not a summery product.
- High on fragrance.
