Lakme Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Creme Review

Lakme Absolute has come up with an array of skin care and makeup related products. I did not shop for any skincare recently, but wanted to try out the Lakme Absolute Skin Gloss Serum after reading reviews. Luckily I got the Lakme Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Creme in one of the Blogger's Meets. So today I am reviewing that.

About Lakme Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Creme:
Didn’t you always desire for a perfect combination of nourishment and shine for your skin? Well, the wait is over. The Lakmé Skin Gloss Gel Crème is enriched with minerals to hydrate your skin for a healthy glow. Along with moisture for a soft, supple texture, it gives your skin a layer of flawless luster.
A light glaze with mineral laden glacial water
Hydrates to make skin look radiant
Moisture coats your skin with gloss

Price: Rs.399 for 50g Available here

Packaging: The Lakme Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Creme comes in a very attractive black cardboard packaging which has a face of a lady in Marvel Comic style. The gel is secured inside a sleek black glass jar with a metallic turquoise cap.

Product: The gel creme is a thick gel in texture and is pale greenish white in colour. The fragrance is a bit strong.

My Experience: Lakme Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Creme is supposed to be a light gel based cream that will provide glossy finish to the skin. The cream first spreads like a thin layer of glue on the skin and takes a bit time to get absorbed fully.When it does get absorbed I can feel that my skin has become soft, but apparently I do not really notice any glow or gloss as such. I was expecting a bit of glow, but sadly it did not give any noticeable one either. The only thing is it made the skin plump and soft. 

And I am sure if you are wearing makeup afterwards, the application will be quite smooth and easy. The fragrance is another weak point. I don't like the heavy fragrance at all. the good thing is it does not stay for a long time. The best thing about the cream is its sleek and attractive packaging. However, I feel if you need a quick charge of hydration on the skin, the Lakme Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Creme will come handy. Again, this will not be enough to hydrate dry skin.

Lakme Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Creme is an average performing regular moisturizer which one can use just for hydrating purpose. However, if you have dry skin or if you want some extra dewy or glowing skin by applying this cream, you may be left disappointed. Still, you can use it if you want your foundation or BB cream application to be smoother.
