My Experience with Lakme 9To5 Insta Light Instant Glow Creme

Packaging- The outer box is a usual card box which has the ingredient list and other essential information regarding this creme. This creme comes in a grey colored slender tube with a light pink screw open cap. The tube has a tiny nozzle to squeeze out the product. The other details are mentioned on the tube in a metallic pink color.

Product Color & Texture- The creme is a baby pink colored thick creme which spreads on the skin and gets absorbed in a few seconds as you apply on the face in circular motions.

The texture is light and doesn’t feels heavy at all once it is applied and absorbed.

Fragrance– I strongly feel the creme has the same fragrance as Fair & Lovely fairness creams have. It is not irritating and doesn’t stays for long.

My Take– I have been using this creme for over 8-9 days and one thing that amazes me is that it tends to make the skin appear oil-free or shine free which is a rare with my skin during summers. I have normal skin but during extreme summers my T-Zone becomes a little oily and the face looks shiny!

It claims to have sunscreen but the SPF value is not mentioned. I have not stepped out wearing this creme alone for this reason!

This creme tends to create an even toned look and so it is named as an instant glow creme. It surely tends fade the spots to an extent but doesn’t completely hide or conceal them. Well, for medium and fair skin tones, this may sound good but not for the dusky beauties as it will give a  whitish cast on their complexion. 🙁

Although it makes the skin look matte, you will certainly feel the need of a moisturizer as it doesn’t has any moisturizing properties.

In my opinion it will be suitable for summers only and mostly for combination/oily skin to keep them shine free for about 4-5 hours.

Overall, it is an average creme and there is nothing so extraordinary as to go gaga over it!

What I like about Lakme 9To5 Insta Light Instant Glow Creme:

  • Absorbs within seconds
  • Makes combination/oily skin look matte
  • Matte looking skin for 4-5hours
  • Evens out skin tone
  • Gives a temporary instant glow

What I don’t like about Lakme 9To5 Insta Light Instant Glow Creme:

  • Will not suit Dusky beauties
  • Won’t go well with dry skin
  • No hydrating properties

Rating– 2.75

Will I recommend?– Well, if you have an oily/combination skin and looking out for a day creme then you may give it a try for everyday use during the summers! Otherwise, skip it! 🙂
