Review by Barisha
I am back with another skincare review, and this time it’s not an aroma magic product: P
After a long time almost 2-3 years I try something from lakme I bought this basically for the low price and I love the strawberry coloured packaging, honestly I did not expect much from this product, this product belongs to lakme’s new range called “Clean-Up Nourishing Glow with strawberry extracts”.
They have 3 products in this range:
- lakme clean up face wash
- lakme clean up scrub
- lakme clean up mask.
Price: INR 40/- for 25 ml for the facewash, INR 99/- each for the mask and scrub.
Availability: Lakme products are easily available in stores and I have seen this in medplusbeauty.
Best before: 24 months from date of mfg. (I am sure I will finish all products from this range within 2 years)
Packaging: These come in a strawberry-pink and silver cute transparent tube. All products from this range has similar packaging. I can see how much product is left. Its travel friendly too. I generally carry the face wash in my college bag.
Lakme Clean up Face wash:
Ingredients: aqua,glycerine,carbomer,sodium laureth sulphate,cocamidopropyl betain,perfume,sodium hydroxide,microcrystalline wax beads white,microcrystalline wax beads red,strawberry extract,cl 14700,cl 17200,DMDM hydantoin, lodopropynyl butyl carbamate. contains iodine(Its good or bad?)
Colour, Texture & Smell: As you all can see it’s a beautiful pink liquid with a gel like consistency. It has some small ekdum chote chote (very tiny) red beads which do not help in scrubbing. It smells exactly like their strawberry face wash from the fruitblast Range. The smell is pleasant and I don’t think it will disturb sensitive noses. SLS is present in the ingredient list but still this one does not foam a lot. It creates mild lather which is easily washable.
My Experience: I did not expect much from this product but after using it for almost 14-15 days I can say that it’s a nice product. Not expensive, does not harm the skin, removes sunscreen and moisturiser without making my combination skin dry. I don’t apply makeup so don’t know if it will remove makeup or not.
- Easily available.
- It has beautiful refreshing smell.
- Travel friendly packaging.
- Does not irritate my skin.
- Does not dry out the skin.
- Paraben free.
- It’s drying for dry skin.
- Irritate eyes
- The beads do nothing.
My Rating: 4/5 (-1 for all cons)
Will I repurchase this again? No, there are so many face washes in the market, I want to try more. :P
Will I recommend this to others? Sure. It’s worth a try.
Coming to the 2nd product from the range…
Lakme Clean up Face Scrub:
Product description: Natural exfolients. Known to unclog pores that help remove blackheads, dead cells, excess oil, for deep cleansed and smooth skin.
Ingredients: aqua,sls,walnut shell powder,cocoamidopropyl betaine,glycerite sterate,propylene glycol,corn,peg 100 sterate,cetyl alcohol,ceteateth 20,polysorbate 60,acetylated lanolin alcohol,titanium di oxide,perfume carbomer,tritholamenine,tocopheryl acetate,glycerine,fruit extract,strawberry fruit extract,ppg-2,methyl ether,ddm hydentoin,methyl chloroisothiazolinone
How to use: wet face, take a generous amount and gently message for 2-3 minutes in circular motion with finger tips avoiding eye area.rince thoroughly with water and pat dry.
Colour, Texture & Smell: The texture of the scrub white thick creamy with lots of micro granules, the granules are not at all harsh on my sensitive skin. The smell is similar to the face wash. .
My Experience: I am a scrub addict. I can live without kajal, nail polish, lipstick and face pack but without scrub my life is incomplete. My VLCC scrub was almost finished so I bought this one and I quite like this. It does everything that it claims. It is creamy in texture. The granules are very gentle so it does not irritate my sensitive skin. They removes dead cells effectively without making my skin dry. It claims to remove black heads and white heads. I can’t comment on this cause I don’t have any black heads and white head are almost gone. (All credit goes to aroma magic abc face pack). Overall it’s a nice product at a reasonable price.
- Easily available
- Does help in eliminating dead cells
- Makes my skin baby soft after wash
- Does not irritate my skin
- Does not dry out my skin
- The tube lasts long, as very small amount is needed per wash
- Will suit all skin type
I can’t think of any, it delivers everything it claims.
My Rating: 5/5
Will I recommend to others?
If you are looking for a budget friendly scrub then try this one, you will love it.
Will I buy this again? Yes sure.
Now coming to the last product from the range…
Lakme Clean up Face Pack:
As I love experimenting with different face masks, I could not stop myself from buying this too.
Product description: Easy rinse of mask, contains clay known to absorb excess oil and help in skin tightening leaving your skin soft and glowing.
Ingredients: aqua,kaolin,glycerine,bentonite,peg400,titaniumdioxiade,staeric acid,palmitic acid,dls,cetosteryl alcohol,niacinamide,dimithanol,teadodecyl,xanthan gum,perfume,allantoin,sodium ascorbyl phosphate,disodium edta,propylin glycol,strawberry fruit extract,cl 17200,phenoxyethenol,methyl paraben,butyl paraben,ethyl paraben,propyl paraben,dmdm hydantoin,ibc.
Usage: Wet face, apply the mask evenly on your face and neck and allow it to dry. Rinse off with water and pat dry.
Colour, Texture & Smell: The texture of this face pack is very thick, pinkish white coloured. as it is a clay base pack its little drying, you need to follow the instruction, without wetting the skin the pack would not spread easily, it dries within 10 minutes, and one other thing I like about pack is being clay based it is easily removable. All products from this range smells similar, and the smell is good will not disturb sensitive nose.
My Experience: It cleanses my skin pretty well, without giving any dry effect. I thought as it is a clay based pack, it will help me with my existing pimples. While it did not cause any break out or irritation to my sensitive skin, it did not exactly work on the pimples. It’s a nice mask for combination skin and a superb mask for oily skin as it cleans skin thoroughly and adds a temporary glow to the face.
- Easily available.
- travel friendly
- Does not irritate the skin.
- Adds temporary glow to the skin.
- Smells nice.
- Will not suit dry skin.
- Contains paraben.
My Rating: 3/5
Will I recommend this to others? Yes sure, at this price you can try this at least once.
Will I repurchase this again? No, I want to try some new face pack.
Final Verdict: These products are nice, easily available and light on the pocket. If you use them together, they give nice temporary glow to the skin. I have dry sensitive skin with an oily t zone and I am happy with the face wash and scrub. This pack is a little drying for my skin,but nothing that a moisturiser can not take care of. If you are an oily skin beaut,y then try the whole range. I am sure you will love this..
Thank you for reading. T
ETM Edit* Very nice and detailed review Barisha. I am definitely trying the scrub and face pack. Sounds nice and not too heavy on the pocket as well.
