Hello! I'm back with a skincare range review this time. Last month when I had reviewed the Lakmé Absolute Illuminate Makeup Range for you guys, I'd told you that I will be reviewing the Illuminate Skincare range soon, which I am doing today in this post :) The Illuminate Skincare range basically is known as the Lakmé Absolute Perfect Radiance Range which is a skin lightening range, and Lakmé sent me a pretty box with 3 products from the range. I tried out something new this time in the way I have reviewed this range, so read on to know it all!
The Pretty Box that arrived
For this review like I mentioned, I tried something different. I wanted to see the effect that the range would have on different age groups and so I kept the Serum for myself to use, and asked my mom to try the Light Creme and the Night Creme. We are 24 years apart with different skin types, but we are both blessed with great skin that doesn't show our respective ages. My complexion is wheatish, and my skin is a little patchy and is lightly pigmented, while my mother is fair and has pigmentation that has come in with age. You must note that this range cannot be reviewed in 15 days of usage but needs to be used longer to see the results. We used the products from May until now which is August and I'm quite excited to share the results.
Lakmé Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Lightening Serum With Vita-Resorcinol
This skin lightening serum comes in bottle with a fancy twist-up pump. It is concentrated with Vita-Resorcinol that reduces the formation and transfer of skin darkening pigments. It contains precious micro-crystals to polish your skin and give you a fresh and radiant glow. It is a light serum which I used twice - day and night for moisturisation, and under my makeup as a primer. It is not greasy at all on my dry skin. I need just one to two pumps depending upon the dryness of my skin. In 3 months the results have been amazing. My skin has cleared up considerably resulting in even skin tone as far as the patchiness and blemishes go, the pigmentation has reduced and it has added a nice glow to my face. I haven't bleached in a while and I haven't used any other skin products along with this which means that just using this one serum has made a difference. I was honestly very surprised because I totally was not expecting this result. Priced at INR 849, this product is totally worth every penny.
Lakmé Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Lightening Night Creme
The Night Creme is what my mom started using first. Light in texture, it contains micro-crystals and skin lightening vitamins that intensely nourish your skin and work towards lightening it through the night. You wake up to healthier looking skin every morning. In about 2 months my mother noticed a huge change in her pigmentation levels with it reducing to a huge extent. Her skin looked clearer, more blemish free than earlier and also reduced the darkness under her eyes. Now just to let you guys know, my mother had been using one of the best night creams available in the market for years, which costs her about $100 per bottle, whereas the Lakmé Night Creme comes to you for a neat INR 335/-! In the cost of one bottle of what she used to use earlier, she can buy more than a year's supply of the Lakme Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Lightening Night Creme is what I joke with her now ;-)
Lakmé Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Lightening Light Creme
My mom decided to start the trial only with the Night Creme, but after two months when she started to see a difference, she started using the Light Creme as well. This too contains micro-crystals to polish your skin and skin lightening vitamins to brighten it. The creme contains SPF 20 PA++, is ultra light and gets absorbed into the skin in a jiffy. For someone with normal to oily skin like my mom, this product is a boon for the day which provides moisturisation and sun protection. This too is priced at INR 335/-
While everything about the products is great, my mother just felt that the creme bottles should have had a spill proof lid beneath the bottle caps.
For my mom and me both, using these products has resulted in evening of skin tone and pigmentation reduction. Different skin tones, different skin types and different ages, it has worked on all of these and shown amazing results. We both recommend this range for anyone wanting clear and blemish free and illuminated looking skin :)
