Hello Ladies 🙂,
Today i wanted to do a review on the Lakme Complexion Care (CC) Cream Beige which I have been using for two to three weeks now. I had a confusion while buying this from the Lakme outlet as I couldn’t decide between Beige and Bronze. I finally got the Beige as this is perfect for fair to medium skin tones and would suit me perfectly. The cream combines the goodness of a lot of other products combined into one and can be used on a daily basis.
Product: Lakme Complexion Care(CC) Cream

My Analysis of Lakme Complexion Care (CC) Cream Beige
Many of us do not want to apply foundations on a daily basis. Nor do we have the time to properly moisturize and tone our faces in the morning. Sometimes we may even forget to apply the much needed sunscreen to protect us from UVA and UVB radiations. The answer to all these problems can be found in Lakme Complexion Care (CC) Cream Beige. This cream gives you an even skin tone and is perfect for reducing blemishes.
The SPF 20(there is no PA++) present in the cream should also provide a fair amount of coverage from UVA and UVB though I would recommend using your own sunscreen. What I like about the CC cream is that it blends very easily with the skin giving you a matte finish. The cream provides low to medium coverage but is good enough for daily usage. Lakme also claims that the cream is moisturizing. However, I would recommend using a proper moisturizer to all of you who have very dry skin.
The Lakme Complexion Care (CC) Cream Beige is good for cancelling out some of the redness on your skin and provides a fair amount of coverage for blemishes. It has a good staying power(7 – 8 hours) as it lasts all through the day. However, the T-zone feels a bit greasy after a few hours. However, this cream is perfect for daily use and brings about a subtle glow to your face.
How I apply the Lakme Complexion Care (CC) Cream Beige
Before, using this cream I cleanse my face using a good cleanser like the Cetaphil Cleansing Lotion. I also use a moisturizer underneath the CC Cream. I really find it easy to apply foundations or CC or BB Creams if my face is properly moisturized beforehand. You may apply a primer beneath the CC Cream just like you would for a foundation but that is completely optional.
After cleansing and moisturizing, I apply the Lakme Complexion Care (CC) Cream Beige in little dots all over my face. I then slowly blend the cream using my fingertips till it mixes with my skin tone. After applying this, your skin might appear to be more whitish than normal, but give it some time and it will gradually even out your skin tone. Finally, this cream will give you a perfect matte finish and a brightened look. 🙂
Color, Texture, and Fragrance
The Lakme Complexion Care (CC) Cream comes in two shades, Beige and Bronze. This is the Beige color that I have used and is lighter than the Bronze one. Both the shades have a yellowish undertone and the Beige is perfect for light to medium skin tones.
The cream has got a lovely texture. It is creamy and has got a velvety feeling when you rub it. The product is neither runny nor thick and is very easy to use your fingers and spread it all over your skin. The cream also is easy to blend with the skin and evens you out. The CC Cream provides medium coverage and gives a soft matte finish that I adore so much. The CC Cream also has a fresh citrus smell that I love! 🙂
The tube comes in a dark pink box with Lakme CC Complexion Care Cream written in bold fonts. The tube itself is pale yellow or rather beige in color with a silver screw-on cap. The packaging looks classy and expensive. The sturdy tube is very convenient and easy to use.
My Final Word
The Lakme Complexion Care (CC) Cream Beige was a really good experience for me. Lakme claims a lot of things for this product. Many of it’s benefits might be debatable, but I haven’t got conclusive proof of something that it claims to do but it doesn’t. So, this is a good cream to try. One thing that it really does good is, it evens out your skin tone really well and brightens your face. The product creates a natural effect on the skin and it doesn’t feel like wearing heavy makeup. It’s worth a try! 🙂
