Lakme recently launched a new cream Lakme Insta Light Instant Glow Crème that claims to give a radiant look to your dull and tired skin instantly. It is a dual formation of powder and crème that makes skin appear bright and even. I was super excited to try this unique crème and here I am with my review on Lakme 9to5 Insta Light Instant Glow Crème* which is priced at Rs 79 for 20g.

Swatch of Lakme 9to5 Insta Light Instant Glow Crème
Lakme Insta Light Instant Glow Crème comes in a silver cardboard box packaging with all the information printed over it. The actual product comes in a dark silver, small, squeezable plastic tube with a screw top lid. You can easily carry it around in your bag while traveling without any fear of leakage. The cream is light pink in color with a lovely and pleasant scent. The fragrance is noticeable only when you apply the cream and vanishes away after few minutes.

The cream has soft and smooth texture with creamy consistency. It reminds me of L’Oreal Paris Skin Perfect Anti Imperfections+Whitening Cream. I simply apply few dots all over my face and neck after cleansing and toning and smooth it gently using my fingertips. It applies smoothly and spreads easily. It gets absorbed quickly and makes my skin appear smooth and matte. You will notice a slight whitish cast on the skin but it settles down to a natural look within few seconds. It contains mineralized powder and sets like a powder giving your skin a matte finish. 

My oily- combination skin feels soft, smooth and matte for a good 8-9 hours. I love using it prior foundation as it keeps my face matte and does not make it greasy (especially T zone!) at the end of the day unlike other creams. As it is very hot here, I particularly need light moisturizer and this crème is perfect in this season. If you have dry skin then this crème is not for you as it is not very hydrating. It provides sun protection due to the presence of sunscreen so I always skip my sunscreen when I step out in the sun. My skin looks fresh, oil free and healthy but I have not noticed instant glow on my skin. I have not faced any adverse effects whilst using it. 

PROS:
Light moisturizer.
Lovely fragrance.
Blends into the skin quickly.
Gives a matte and fresh look to the skin.
Keeps skin oil free for a long time.
Great for oily and combination skin.
Reasonably priced.
Travel friendly packaging.

CONS:
Does not give instant glow to the skin.
Not hydrating enough for dry skin.

Overall Thoughts:
Lakme 9to5 Insta Light Instant Glow Crème is a great mattifying cream for people with oily and combination skin. It keeps skin oil free for a long time in this scorchy weather and feels light on the skin. As per the name, I have not noticed any instant glow in my skin. I would definitely recommend it to people with oily and combination skin!

Rating: 4/5
