Lakmé Citrus Rain Fruit Detox face wash

(Reviewed by Kavita)

About the face wash:

Lakmé Citrus Rain Fruit Detox Face wash is a rich and frothy face wash with a concoction of fresh mandarin and sweet orange. It sweeps off all traces of dirt to give your skin a Vitamin C rush that will release stress and leaves the skin refreshed, zesty and re-energized.

Price: Rs. 85 for 50 g; Rs. 135 for 100 g.

Lakmé Citrus Rain Fruit Detox Face wash

Kavita says:

This face wash is quite good—especially for winters. It keeps my skin fresh and moisturised for 7-8 hours after use. Just a little product is enough for myself as it foams well. I feel the freshness as I apply the product and even after I wash it off.

Unfortunately I don’t get a fresh or citrusy fragrance from the product—that would have been wonderful. And at times, my skin feels slightly “stretched” if I apply more than usual or rub for a longer time. But overall, I’m quite satisfied with the product. It was ideal for winter!

Rating: 3.5/5

Lakmé Fruit Blast Strawberry face wash

(Reviewed by Chaitra)

About the face wash:

The strawberries in the product, with Vitamin B and C leaves the skin smooth and youthful, while the micro-beads scrub away impurities, leaving your skin refreshed and delicately perfumed with the fragrance of strawberries.

Price: Rs. 85 for 50 g; Rs. 135 for 100 g.

Lakme Strawberry Blast face wash

Chaitra says:

The product is exactly what it claims to be—gently exfoliating the skin, though it feels more like a massage than a scrub. It foams well, and makes my skin look clearer, brighter and fresher. I get compliments when I use this face wash. Like the other day, my colleagues thought I’d got “something done to my face” at the salon.

The effect lasts long, and I love that it feels more like a gel than a typical face wash. The only drawback: it makes my skin a bit dry sometimes.

Rating: 4.5/5

Lakmé Melon Melt Fruit Quench Face Wash

(Reviewed by Noor)

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.

Lakme Melon Melt Fruit Quench Face Wash

Noor says:

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)

Lakmé Fruit Blast Pear Butter Deep Hydrating Mask

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

Deepti says:

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.

Rating: 3/5

Part 2: Coming soon

Lakme’s new launches: Perfect Radiance Compact and Fruit Blast face washes

In the recent past, Lakmé has launched several makeup products, such as the popular Gypsy makeup collection and Lakmé Day Perfect Lip Color.

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

Lakme 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

Lakmé Fruit Blast Face CleansersLakmé Fruit Blast Face Cleansers face washes

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.
