What the brand says: Meet the gentle Day Crème, with a tough city attitude. It has pure aloe extracts to fight pollution and hydrate skin. SPF 20 PA++ protects skin from UV damage. It acts as a barrier between pollution and skin, so you can step out with a city bright look, every day.
MY TAKE ON LAKME 9 to 5 NATURALE DAY CREME SPF 20:
Packaging: The cream comes in a regular tub packaging which is quite similar to the aloe gel in the same range. I wish the tub came with an applicator because dipping your fingers in the tub every time is quite unhygienic.
Texture: The cream is quite lightweight and blends beautifully into the skin leaving behind a velvety-matte finish. I have combination skin which feels a lot oilier in humid weathers and this cream works perfectly then!
Fragrance: The cream has a refreshing fragrance which I quite love.
How I use and after-effects: I love using this cream in the morning and under my makeup. I always use the aloe gel from same range before applying this cream and it makes my skin feel fresh, hydrated, bright and soft.
Since the product contains SPF, it does leave behind a white cast but does not really look odd at all, in fact it makes my skin look fresh and bright. Blends beautifully and settles to a matte yet moisturized finish. Controls shine for 3-4 hours in humid weathers and will work even better in winters and rainy season for my skin type. The moisturization property isn’t that great so if you have dry skin, you might need another layer of a moisturizer or maybe completely skip this. Because I have combination-oily skin, my skin loves this to bits. Makes a great base for makeup and makes your skin look healthy and plump. The product is definitely worth the price and I give this a thumbs up.
