Lakme Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Crème: Detailed Review

I am really obsessed with Lakme products and their quality and was so much excited to use them from my childhood. I really like the lipstick collection of Lakme and few other products from them but do you feel that Lakme is overrated or is it worth the price?

Today, I am going to put my reviews on their one of the best selling product which is Lakme Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Crème

So, for this product, Lakme claims that:

The Lakmé Skin Gloss Gel Crème is enriched with minerals to hydrate your skin for a nourishing healthy glow. Along with moisture for a soft, supple texture, it gives your skin a layer of flawless lustre.

Let's start with our review now...

About the packaging of the product

The outer packaging of this gel cream is a big black box and the best thing is that this box listed all the ingredients list.

The inner packaging is quiet classy, it comes in silver color tub with icy blue metallic cap which is reflective and oh my god, it looks amazing.

The gel cream is light blue in color and it sits perfectly well with all skin textures as it actually does not have any tint or dewy effective while putting it on the skin. One thing which can bother you is the fragrance of this gel cream. It has a fragrance just like boys after shave lotions but it does not last long and could vanish in 1-2 minutes. so does not bother me so much. To be honest, I like this fragrance.

My personal experience

So, Lakme launched this product for daily purpose cream for day and night but I really do not feel comfortable with this gel based cream for my daily wear and there are several reasons for it which I am listing forward.

This gel cream is so light weight and feels like I have applied anything over my skin, which is a good thing as I never wanted to end up with heavy weight creams which makes my face look dull and oily. Also, this gel cream makes my skin so smooth, soft and moisturized.

But due to its gel based texture, it starts making my skin dry in sometime which I really do not want. Unlike other Lakme products, this cream is not so last longing over my skin, I cannot apply it in morning and leave it for continuous 5-6 hours. I need to use some moisturizer after few hours around my nose area and cheeks where I generally starts getting dryness.

Also, it does not have any SPF and I prefer to use a cream on daily basis which has SPF.

How I prefer to use it

As I mentioned above, I do not use it as daily purpose cream then you must be wondering that how do I use it? Due to its lightweight and gel based texture, I use it as primer before my makeup. Surprised...?

Yes, this cream works best as a primer before applying any makeup. It settles down over your skin very well and makes your skin so smooth and makeup ready.

My makeup blends extremely well once I apply it as my base.

You need to keep in mind that we have to apply very less quantity of it before applying your makeup so that, it will not make your skin oily after sometime. I am having normal skin so it works great for me.
