Today I will be reviewing the Lakme Perfect Radiance Intense Whitening Day Creme from the Lakme Perfect Radiance Range launched this April. I have already tried and reviewed the Lakme Perfect Radiance Fairness Cream which comes in a pink cute metallic tub but this one is different. This whitening creme is from a newly launched intense whitening range (They have introduced those whitening capsules treatment! Remember?) and comes in a different kind of packaging. Read my complete review below.

My Experience with Lakme Perfect Radiance Intense Whitening Day Creme
Packaging: This product is packed in a white, sleek tube with a screw type opening. The nozzle dispenses the right amount of product with its tiny hole, hence no wastage. This sleek white tube is placed inside a outer carton and overall, the packaging is simple, travel friendly and easy to use.
Colour, Consistency and Fragrance: This is a white coloured fairness day cream with a very subtle peach tint. The peach tint is almost invisible to the eyes. The texture of this cream is smooth, moderately thick and it has a gentle, pleasing floral fragrance similar to the Lakme Fairness Day Cream which claims to contain sacred lotus extracts. The texture and fragrance of both these creams are more or less similar to each other.
How it works: I used this cream on summer and it suited my normal-oily skin well. This cream spreads smoothly onto the facial skin and gives a perfect matte finish which many oily skinned beauties out there would love. My T-Zone is left with a shine-free finish and moreover it brightened up my face instantly. I had to set the cream with a compact to make its staying power longer. This fairness day cream helped my facial skin stay matte for 3-4 hours but after that my T-Zone started to show some shine. This is not a problem with me though. With regular usage, it did not help lighten my scars or anything. It did not even lighten my complexion and finally, this is one fairness cream for oily skinned beauties who prefer an instant, bright matte finish. The tube packaging can also be considered easy-to-use and hygienic when compared to the previously launched Lakme Perfect Radiance Fairness Cream which comes in a pink tub. Another thing I wanted to mention is that it caused a very mild tingling sensation on my skin for 2-3 days when I first used it (I am not sure whether it is because of the continuous release technology they claim) and later my skin got practiced to it. Hence, if you have an extra sensitive skin type, you may not like this cream. Overall, this is a good, affordable instant brightening day cream for oily skinned beauties. A tube lasts me for 1 month with daily usage.

Cons of Lakme Perfect Radiance Intense Whitening Day Creme
- No SPF
- Does cause a mild tingling sensation when used first
- Does not help with whitening skin or anything as claimed.
- Surely a no-no product for normal-dry and dry skinned people
- The matte finish doesn't last more than 3-4 hours
Makeup and Beauty Home Rating: 3.5/5
Recommendation: Oily skinned beauties who love matte finish day creams can give this a try! Do not expect any whitening or lightening effect from this cream.
Would I Repurchase?: I don't think so. There are more affordable day creams in the market with better results and moreover, I am not that much into fairness products.
