Lakme Absolute Skin Gloss Reflection Serum
Firstly a little more clarity on my skin type. It used to be more of combination skin earlier, now its become more sensitive to dry. Also, I sweat a lot!! So you know why I was worried about using a glossy serum in this hot and humid weather!!
What it claims:
An aqueous veil with mineral laden glacial water.
Hydrates to make skin look lustrous
Moisture coat your skin with gloss.
Dab entire face with 3-4 drops of serum and gently pat till absorbed.
Price : Rs.899 for 30ml
My experience with Lakme Absolute Skin Gloss Reflection Serum
After using H20 face oasis hydrating treatment gel at night, I loved the really softand fresh face in the morning. Given that Lakme absolute skin gloss has similar claims, I thought I ‘ll try it out!
Packaging: I must admit the packaging is also one of the reasons I got it !:p
It comes in a black plastic shiny bottle with a metallic blue rim in a black cardboard box. it should be stored upright, so traveling with it in a handbag is not advisable!!
The serum is a clear fluid with a runny watery consistency. The first thing that hits u though is the strong masculine fragrance, more like men’s aftershave!! That can be a turn-off, but luckily it doesn’t last long and fades away within seconds of application
I found 1 -2 drops enough for covering the whole face and neck. It is easily absorbed and thankfully, it does not feel heavy in this weather either!! My skin did feel a little sticky after applying, and had a shine line of sorts, not oily or greasy! I hope I am making sense!! I follow it up with primer in the mornings and leave it just as it is at nights. Skin felt softer and fresh. I have been using it for 2 weeks and haven’t broken out.
Also, I used it while traveling to a much hotter place and found the same. My skin only felt hydrated and not greasy. However, a result might vary with other skin types.
