At first, I thought of trying it and then continue the product.. so i bought the sample of lakme cc cream(honey) 'cause I'm not sure of the skin color from fair to wheatish. So better try for sample and then buy the whole product! It gives good coverage, can be used regularly, for acne prone skin- one must wipe/cleanse their skin at the end of the day!

Good for daily use
5/5

PROS

Evens out skin tone

Brightens complexion

CONS


It gives a better coverage and gives glow/shine to skin. Need to add some moisturizer and it'll not dry out the skin. Not fully covers all the pimple marks and acne but, can give a little fade so can follow up with the foundation powder. I've tried both honey and beige type.. both gives the good even skin tone and conceals. but, i prefer honey for my skin tone! It'll not clog the pores if it removed at end of the day and can be used daily/regularly.. I'll use this for instant ready-to-go events.

Good enough

PROS

Evens out skin tone

Provides basic coverage

CONS

Takes time to blend


It evens out skin tone and gives good enough coverage for people who are just starting out and don't want to invest in a foundation. It does take a while to blend in properly and I have to heavily moisturise my skin prior to using this, as my skin is very dry. So my fellow dry skin beauties, remember to amply moisturise your skin before applying it. All in all, I do prefer this to a foundation for everyday use.

Great replacement for a no makeup look

Amazing product. I have been using it for an year now and it's really good buy. You can use it everyday. You don't need a foundation if you are using it coverage is really good but you have to keep in mind that you are buying right shade. It doesn't moisturizes but that is not an issue that can be dealt by using a hydration or moisturising cream priorly.

According to me, this product has no cons. Probably I am little too obsessed with this product. 😁 Have been using it for more than a year and this is the only product that I use while going out for any event or function. It gives a very nice glow to my skin. I have an overall evened out skin,so this product works as a foundation, base for me. Also it is very moisturizing and also contains SPF. Which is amazing. It is an all-in-one product for me. However if anyone has acne/patches, they can first apply concealer and then use it. Overall, it is my saviour in one word.

Best product on a budget

PROS

CONS


If you are on a budget or have a long list of cosmetics and skin care products to buy, then you can actually save a lot of money with this. Because it can act as 3-in-1 formula for at least oily skin type. A moisturizer/ face cream, sunscreen and foundation. So, you need not apply all separately, this one CC Cream will be just enough. If your skin is dry then hydrate and moisturize your face nicely before applying it. Just a few drops of it will do wonders to your skin and it will look glowy. It is one product that if you carry in your bag, you will be sorted.

Travel friendly

CONS

Doesn't cover blemish

Gets patchy around blemishes


I was searching for a good BB cream and I found this Lakme 9 to 5 Complexion Care CC Cream and it looked a little interesting to me. I thought of giving it a try and bought Lakme 9 To 5 Complexion Care CC Cream. The Lakme 9 To 5 Complexion Care CC Cream comes in a pink cardboard box. It has a shiny white to beige ombre effect tube and a rose gold screw cap. The dispenser hole of the tube dispenses the right amount of the product which avoids wastage of cream. Product is affordable and travel friendly. I have it in my hand bag always for my daily use, so I could have a minimal makeover when I go out shopping and to the place where makeup is not much needed.

I don't use it for parties and function as they don't provide high coverage. This cream is available in 4 shades: Beige for very fair and fair skin tones, Honey for fair to wheatish skin tones, Bronze for wheatish to dusky skin tones and Almond for dusky skin tones. One has to be careful in choosing the right shade. Or you end up being darker. I bought the beige. It was good when I applied it first on my face but after some time, it changed color and I felt one shade darker. I used my compact powder to set it up right. I think Lakme should introduce more shades to match every skin tone. It covered my blemishes partially.

The centre portion of the blemish was covered but it appeared cakey and left patches around the blemishes. I have an oily skin but still it didn't blend well with my blemishes. It looked great when I wore it blemish-free. So, I avoid this when I have new breakouts. Here is my review about this product when I used it on my acne-free days. It had a very creamy texture that glides so easily on the skin giving a smooth finish. It was also easy to blend. And dint look dry or patchy as I was acne free. It also gives an even tone. It's my favourite on acne-free days.

CONS


I found it at the Lakme counter and picked it up, not knowing how many shades were available or anything as it had just been launched. The shade I got is “Bronze.” Later, I got to know that there are two shades available Bronze for darker skin and Beige for light/medium skin. Sadly, I got the bronze shade which is a bit darker for my skin tone. I have wheatish complexion (I don’t know exactly, but the skin tone Deepika Padukone has!) with neutral undertones.

The cream has the typical “Lakme” fragrance that all Lakme products have (I like it because it has a nostalgic vibe to it :p). It is a bit thick in consistency though it blends out very well. I used fingers for application because a flat foundation brush just ate up the CC cream (you know how I talked about flat brushes having that special ”drinking” capabilities!) It blends like a dream! Because I have neutral (not yellow or pink) undertones, it suited me although made me look “bronzed” literally. It was like I had applied a beautiful bronzer all over my face! You need more than your typical BB cream, but that does not make you look cakey. Coming to coverage, it covers pores/minor spots with a breeze! It gave such a beautiful natural looking, non cakey, non made up coverage like no other drugstore stuff I have used before, my skin looked airbrushed! The effect is somewhat dewy. I have combination skin, more oily during summers and in this rainy weather in Kolkata (it is raining like cats and dogs since weeks now!), it stayed oil free for only 3 hours.

I am sure in hot summers, it will make my t-zone oily in no time, that’s the only minus point in this otherwise fabulous product; however, I did not wear any compact and that must be noted because usually I always wear compact to stay oil free. It is most suitable for normal skinned beauties, dry skin beauties will love it as well and for combination and oily skinned girls, we surely need a compact and a tissue to blot!

A must-have for every girl
4.5/5

PROS

Does not cause breakouts

Covers light blemishes

Sleek packaging

Long-lasting

Matte finish and natural glow

Does not look cakey

Protects from UV rays

CONS

Thick texture that makes is difficult to blend


Surprisingly, Lakme 9 to 5 CC Complexion Care Cream did not disappoint me because I honestly did not expect good coverage. However, it covered up my blemishes with a matte finish and also gave a natural glow. For my fair skin tone, beige shade suited me well. It does not make my skin fairer, but makes it look smooth and refined. Another thing I like about this cream is that it makes my skin look dewy instead of oily. I also love the fact that the cream has a soft, almost sweet aroma. Since I dislike strong artificial or chemical smell in makeup, this cream works well for me.

The packaging of the product is oddly satisfying. It came in a box that is hot pink color inside out. The compact packaging makes it travel-friendly and convenient.

One thing I don't like about the cream was the texture because it takes a lot of blending. If I don't blend it out properly, my skin looks patchy. But after blending properly, the cream feels light on my skin, and covers up imperfections. The cream stays on for about 5 hours or so without having to touch up and that’s a 10 on 10 for me.

So far my skin has not reacted negatively to the cream, and it has been two weeks since I got it.
So overall, Lakme 9 to 5 CC Complexion Care Cream is a product every girl should have in her bag.

Look pretty without much effort
4.2/5

PROS

Affordable

Does not feel heavy on the skin

Creamy texture that spreads easily

Medium coverage

Evens out the skin tone

SPF 30

Good for daily use

CONS

Can dry out your cheeks a bit


I have dusky skin, so it kind of gets tricky while trying to choose the right shade. But Lakme 9 to 5 CC complexion care cream has some great shades for Indian skin tones. For my skin tone, the Almond shade (as recommended) matches well without making me look fake.

The cream comes in a tube packaging that is travel-friendly and easy to use. The texture of the cream is creamy that spreads easily and does not feel heavy on the skin. It gives me a non-oily and non-greasy finish. I don’t have to apply any moisturizer or sunscreen over it because it ticks off all the criteria.

The coverage game is strong, a little amount of the product is enough to cover the face and neck. It gives me a matte finish and covers the pimple scars to some extent. Even if I apply a lot of it, my face does not feel heavy.

My skin is very sensitive, but this CC cream hasn’t given me any breakouts yet. Hopefully, it remains the same in the future. Smell wise it is nice, not too strong, and fades away soon.

I like this CC cream for the fact that it does not need a lot of effort to apply and blend. It gets easily absorbed, and I don’t look like I have put on a lot of makeup and that is my ultimate intention - looking pretty without any effort.

Makes your face greasy
4/5

PROS

Light texture

Blends well

SPF 30

Cute packaging

Does not give an artificial effect

Decent coverage

CONS

Makes face oily after a couple of hours


I love the whole line of Lakme 9 to 5! I was first introduced to their collection by a friend when I used her lipstick to try out the shade. Ever since then I have a soft spot for this collection and Lakme 9 to 5 CC Complexion Care Cream is no exception. My skin is a little towards wheatish skin tone, and the shade Honey matches me without making my face look cakey.

I used to use foundation, but after using this CC cream, I have stopped applying foundation because it is no longer required. This CC cream blends in my skin like it belongs there. The texture is so light and smooth that it doesn’t need much blending as well. And it comes in a cute rose gold tube which I find extremely girly and pretty.

I use it every day before stepping out of the house - be it for work or shopping or meeting up friends. It has SPF 30 so you don’t need to apply another sunscreen which makes it a must-have product.

I have oily skin, but it still manages to balance my moisture. But it does get oily after an hour or two. I correct it by powdering my face with a compact.

The only downfall of this product is that it is not suitable for all skin types. I would have absolutely loved this CC cream if not for having to use compact later on.

Not so great
3/5

PROS

Easy to apply

Cute packaging

CONS

Unsatisfying coverage

Creamy texture

Can make your skin greasy


I have wheatish to dusky skin tone, and the Bronze shade suits me well. The texture of this CC cream is like any creamy foundation, though much thicker than a liquid foundations. I feel that the CC cream isn’t very light on my skin.
The cream comes in a tube which is a beautiful rose gold shade, and the outer cover is bright pink. I absolutely love the packaging because it is girly and cute.
Coverage wise, it spreads nicely and evenly and does not require too much massaging. Without effort, it blends well. But the thing I didn’t like about this CC cream is that it did not do what it claims in terms of covering any marks or dark circles. It did not brighten my face either.
I cannot apply it on a moisturized face as the CC cream is itself very moist. It would have been better if it was a little more matte. My overall experience with this CC cream hasn’t been positive. It wasn’t the one ultimate solution I was hoping for.

Smooth finish
4/5

PROS

Evens out skin tone

Conceals dark spots and other small blemishes

Brightens complexion

Gets absorbed quickly

CONS

Does not conceal scars or heavier marks effectively


The cream is thick and creamy and I thought it would take time to blend into my skin, but it got absorbed quickly. It really blends well. You need to pick the right shade that suits your skin tone. The first time I picked this product out I picked the bronze shade, which is too dark for my fair skin. It looked fake. But now I use honey and beige, and they work like magic. They don’t entirely cover up marks, but they do a fine job of covering up dark spots. I have a scar on my chin and it covers it up when I just use the CC cream without make-up. The cream does not make your skin oily and it stays on longer during winters and in cool AC rooms. It doesn’t leave that cakey finish, but is smooth and feels good too. It freshens up the face and has the signature Lakme smell which I love.

Worth the money
4/5

PROS

Evens out skin tone

Blends well

Conceals blemishes

CONS

Artificial smell

Slightly powdery texture


This cream is worth the money you pay for it. First, let’s talk about the 9 to 5 factor. If you’re in an air conditioned room then it stays for about 7 hours, otherwise it lasts for only 5 hours. I have dark spots and a slightly darker skin tone so I use the bronze shade. Surprisingly, this cc cream does conceal those dark spots. Added to that, it has somehow reduced the puffiness under my eyes and also reduced dark circles. Not sure it’s meant to do that. My face feels fresh and I’ve noticed that there is a glow to it now. I’m not a fan of the artificial smell, but its a small price to pay for what all this cream does.

Love it!
4/5

PROS

Protects from sun rays

Blends well

Mild smell

Brightens complexion

Conceals spots and other marks

Stays on the whole day

CONS

Initially powdery texture


I am a makeup crazy woman. I love looking good because it makes me feel good. So when I heard that Lakme was coming out with their new 9 to 5 CC cream range, I just had to try them all. I have a wheatish complexion and I know that the darker shades will look artificial on my skin, but I had to try it. The creams have a mild scent that isn’t overpowering. It concealed my blemishes wonderfully. I have oily skin and was worried that the CC cream would be sweated-out but that didn’t happen. It remained for the whole day. It hydrated my skin and I have noticed that it protects my skin from tanning. It feels powdery at first but once it gets absorbed, there’s no artificial finish. I love this product.
