This month, Lakmé launched two new products (technically one product and one product range): Lakmé Perfect Radiance Multi Mineral Skin Lightening Compact and Lakmé Fruit Blast face cleansers (or face washes).
Lakmé Perfect Radiance Multi Mineral Skin Lightening Compact
Radiance is the new buzzword in makeup. Women today want makeup to give them a healthy glow rather than a matte look. And Lakmé’s Perfect Radiance Multi Mineral Skin Lightening Compact promises to give women just that. A recent addition to the Perfect Radiance range (which already includes foundation, cream and facewash), the compact is available in six shades. The shades have been especially developed for Indian skin tones by leading makeup expert Cory Walia.
The compact contains Vitamin B3 to lighten skin tone and reduce intensity of blemishes. What’s more, it has SPF 20 to protect skin from UVA and UVB rays.
Price: Rs 150
Strawberries, watermelons, mandarins, raspberries… yum! Much as I’d be tempted to eat these, the new Lakmé face cleansers are not meant to be eaten, but applied, lathered, and washed away. The face washes contain anti-oxidants and essential fatty acids (found in berries) and AHAs (found in citrus fruits).
The face cleansers are for a range of purposes, based on their ingredients. So the Lakmé Melon Melt Fruit Quench face wash with watermelon and muskmelon will deep cleanse, refresh and rehydrate your skin; while the Lakmé Berry Lush Fruit Energizing face wash with strawberries and raspberries will exfoliate and keep your skin soft and smooth.
Price: Rs 70 onwards for 50 gm tubes.
