My Take on for Lakme CC Cream

They Say “A Picture Paints a Thousand Words” yup that’s really true actually. Brand has come up with this great trick and knows the current trend of bright colours. Brand has read our mind gals J   The packaging is really sleek and in Bright colour which really pushed me to buy the product.

This CC Cream comes in traditional tube packaging which is beige tube with a single individual silver cap. This tube packaging makes it travel friendly and you can easily carry it in your purse or clutch. The cap has a hole which dispense right amount of product and little quantity is required for single application on neck and face.


This CC cream has slightly thicker consistency than other regular foundations but it sinks in fast which is really good especially for oily skin. It has a lesser greasy formula then the BB cream I tried from Garnier and it doesn’t leave a white cast after application.  It has a fragrance which looks little strong to me but it is not over powering. I am using it from last 1 month and I haven’t experienced any break out’s yet.

Lakme cream is not only works as a makeup base but I am also happy that it protects my skin from tan too and I tan less now after sun exposure. And the great thing is while using this cream, i don’t even need to slap on sunscreen on my oily face.  It work’s great as a makeup base as it makes my skin silky smooth and soft after application, I don’t need a moisturizer after using it. And the small amount of CC cream goes a long way.


In Short, I am really happy with this Instant skin stylist which means no more scars and uneven tone. So, if you’re looking for a good makeup base with SPF then you must buy one…. I highly recommend this cream everyone out there.
