Masculine smell


Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Creme comes in a very appealing packaging. The first thing that attracted me to it was its black color. I thought it is a charcoal formulated cream because these days, I am obsessed with charcoal skin care products. This cream is clearly not what I thought. But still I purchased it reading its claims; it was very impressive.

At first, I used it during the day, but that didn’t work quite the way I want it, so I started using it as my night cream. If you ask me how I like this cream, I will answer, “confused.”

Here is why. First, it has no SPF. So to wear it during the day is not an option for me. Second, it has a cooling effect. How am I supposed to use it during winter when it’s cold and chilly?

Lakmé needs to make up their mind on what they want this gel cream to be. With no other option, I am using it as my night cream. Since I have dry skin, Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Creme works well.

It is a lightweight gel-cream which is faint blue in color. When I apply it before going to bed, the cooling effect makes my face feel fresh. The moisturization is quite enough to keep my skin hydrated and nourished. It does not get heavy or sticky. The smell though is a complete turn-off. It smells very masculine for my liking. But thankfully, it goes away soon after the gel cream gets absorbed, which is within seconds.

Overall, it is an average product. I won’t be purchasing it again because I don’t want to compromise when it comes to my skin.

5/5

PROS

Improves skin texture

Does not cause breakouts

Replenishes moisture

Doesn’t clog pores

CONS

Not for oily skin


I went all in with this product from Lakmé. I got the full routine - the serum, gel cream and the overnight mask. It was just too appealing, and I couldn’t resist.

I start off my day with the hydrating serum that feels amazing! It wakes up my skin in the morning and accentuates my skin's natural shine, almost like a glossy veil. I follow it up with the Gel Cream that soaks instantly into my skin, and I am good to go. The whole day, my skin feels hydrated and stunning. This routine gives me a dewy and ready-to-go look throughout the day.
At night, I apply the overnight mask to moisturize throughout the night. And I swear this routine is a blessing to my skin. My skin is towards dry and sometimes slightly combination, so this routine works very well for me. A must try!

2/5

PROS

Lightweight

Imparts a cooling sensation

CONS

No SPF

Gets greasy and oily after 3-4 hours

Odd smell


This lightweight gel-cream works fine for a few hours, but after three to four hours, it makes my skin oily and greasy. I think this cream is an average product because I did not see any noticeable changes. I came across many moisturizers that are much more better than this one. Not going to repurchase.

3.6/5

PROS

Non-greasy

Hydrates skin

Blends easily

Gives dewy finish

Sturdy packaging

CONS

Pricey

Unhygienic packaging


My dry skin adores this gel cream from Lakmé. At first, the “gel cream” statement wasn’t very attractive, but still, I gave it a shot. After one month of use, giving it a try was worth the risk.

Though it is gel-like, it moisturizes my dry skin decently. All day long, I have this dewy-sheen look, which makes me confident about my appearance. This cream is not oily, but it adds a pinch of gloss that looks radiant.

The price is a little too much, and I wish the packaging had a pump dispenser. Other than that, Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Creme is one to look out for.
