Lakme Perfect Radiance Polishing Serum Review
By Contributor: Agnirupa
Lakme has come out with a couple of gorgeous products in their Perfect Radiance Intense Whitening range (great move in summer lakme!) and I picked these up and have already reviewed the cream for you. Today I am here with my favorite from the Intense Whitening range- the perfect radiance polishing serum. Hope you are all safe and cool this summer what with this unbearable heat and harsh sun. I am being burnt and fried everyday! Do not forget to put on sunscreen and drink plenty of fluids!
Lakme Claims: Lakmé Perfect Radiance Intense Whitening™ Serum consists of Luminizing Vitamins that make your skin more even and radiant; while the Light Reflecting Pearls highlight your skin texture.
How to use: Light Time Massage your face with a dose of Lakmé Perfect Radiance Intense polishing Serum that instantly transforms from white to pink and corrects skin tone with each application to give you the glow you love. Follow it up with the lightweight gel style Lakmé Perfect Radiance Intense Whitening™ Light Crème that gives your skin a splash of hydration, making it softer and more even toned over time.
If you are familiar with the Youth Infinity serum launched by Lakme last year, this one is pretty much the same by packaging except for the colored body which was rich purple for the youth infinity range while it is a bright rosy pink with the similar lock-pump mechanism. The body is sturdy and travel friendly though the pump from the beginning is not behaving too well.
The texture is smooooth, light, soft and absolutely non-heavy or non-sticky/greasy and feels amazing to spread on skin, goes on nice and smooth and instantly acts as a pick-me-up for tired skin. It does lend a slight luminosity to skin and skin instantly feels dewy and hydrated without being oily!
The serum is pearly white in color which changes to pearly pink in with air as to the effects and claims of this polishing serum I am quite happy with it as I have seen my acne marks lightening up faster than before certainly and I have seen much less tan on my face this summer even though I go out every single day in this harsh sun.
The serum has the same faint flowery smell of the entire range and fades within moments of application.
