Speaking Chic readers review the recent Lakmé winter launch: Fruit Blast face washes. (This is part 1 of the series).
Lakmé Melon Melt Fruit Quench Face Wash
(Reviewed by Noor)
About the face wash
It’s a cocktail of muskmelon and watermelon in gel form that will deep cleanse, refresh and cool your skin. Rich in Vitamin A, B and C, the creamy gel will lathers to transform your skin into never before freshness, radiance and hydration.
Price: Rs. 70 for 50 g, Rs. 125 for 100 g
This face wash has an amazing fragrance—that’s the first thing I noticed about it!
The face wash gave me a “fresh” feeling, but only for the first five minutes. My skin felt amazing for those few minutes, but I wish this effect lasted longer. Besides this, it’s just like any other face wash.
While you can use the face wash in the morning, I recommend Lakmé Melon Melt after a day out as the skin needs to feel cool after being out in the heat.
Lakmé Fruit Blast Pear Butter Deep Hydrating Mask
(Reviewed by Deepti)
About the mask:
The mask contains pears and pure shea butter and is formulated for deep cleansing and intense hydration. Soft, buttery yet grainy textured pears are rich in vitamin C and K that help revitalize skin. Shea butter helps moisturise the skin, promoting cell renewal.
Price: Rs. 150 for 50 g
I like this mask—firstly, it made me feel cool and fresh. After using the product, my skin felt soft and supple, and I was happy to note that the freshness lasted a long time. The soft, creamy texture and the invigorating fragrance is a bonus.
What I didn’t like was that if I applied a cream or moisturiser after using the mask and stepped out of an air-conditioned room, my face would become oily.
Overall, I liked the mask, and I would recommend it to my friends.
