I’m not into skin lightening or fairness creams but the ads by Kareena Kapoor made me try this cream, just out of fun. So, I thought of reviewing the Lakme Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Lightening Day Cream just in case any of you want to know my experiences.


The New Lakme Absolute Range has many skin care products and the price is quite reasonable. It’s still not available on all stores but there are stocks always online.

The range includes whitening serum, UV lotion with SPF 50, night cream, a light cream with SPF 20.

Lakme Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Lightening Day Cream claims to gently polish your skin, lighten, and brighten the skin as it contains skin-lightening vitamins.

My experience with the product

Lakme skin care products do not suit me well so I usually tend to avoid them. But this time I couldn’t resist my temptation looking at the ad every time I’m in front of the TV. So, I thought of trying this out.

The cream comes in a sleek white tube with a silver colored cap. The tiny hole in the tube effectively controls the product coming out. The tube is boxed in a white cardboard box with all details printed over it. So, the packaging is quite good and travel-friendly.

The cream is light pink in color and has a light floral smell – pretty good and refreshing.

The texture is creamy but is super easy to blend.

Lakme Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Lightening Day Cream gets absorbed into the skin easily and gives a nice matte look without any dryness.

The cream gives a nice velvety feel to my skin and the lightweight formula makes it perfect for my oily skin.

However, my oily skin tends to get oilier during the summer just within 20 to 30 minutes.

The Lakme Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Lightening Day Cream adds a nice glow to the face but the claim that it gives an “illuminated look” is not true.

It also covers up the light marks on the face, leaving it fresh for about 2 hours.

However, even though the cream claims to give sun protection but there is no mention of SPF factor in it or in the ingredient list.

The cream also does not lighten the skin complexion permanently; it not gives a temporary lightening.

Insider Information

If you want a permanent skin lightening solution for your skin, then this is not for you.

The Lakme Perfect Radiance Day Cream just enhances your skin tone for a while, until you wash it off or for few hours.

Buying Advice

The best place to buy this is FlipKart.

Buy this only if you want a fairer shade and bright skin tone for few hours. Dry skin people should avoid this, as it will make your skin look flaky.

Would you recommend the product or buy it again?

No, I will not buy this product again unless I’ve any special outing / occasion where I don’t have the time to put on my foundation or BB cream yet want a bright and matte-finished look.
