My Take on Lakme Insta Light Instant Glow Cream

First of all let me tell you I'm never, NEVER a fan of face creams because I don't personally feel they serve any purpose in our skincare routine (no offense to girls who love using them). I always prefer using just my toner & moisturizer after cleansing and dab a little compact for that matte skin. I was actually looking for a 2-in-1 cream which would serve as a primer as well as a smoothing cream for my face and that was when the insta light cream was introduced.
Note: It was the same time when strobing became popular and ta-da ;)

The cream is reasonably priced and doesn't put a hole in your pocket. It comes in a platinum color travel friendly tube packaging with screw cap. Nothing fancy but looks classy :)

The cream has a smooth and soft texture with a pearlescent finish and blends easily with your skin. If you have used Lakme Perfect radiance cream\Ponds white beauty cream then I would say this is a little more thin and creamy than them! Added advantage - It has sunscreen (SPF not mentioned :( )!!

The cream spreads easily and gives an even finish. It gives very less coverage and I'm ok with it as I did not expect anything more than that :) It serves the purpose of a makeup base helping to smoothen out your skin and give that even base! It turns into a powdery texture immediately after application and mattifies your skin. It doesn't melt off quickly and stays put for 4-5 hours which is a big plus for my oily skin.


Overall thoughts

A best mattifying face cream for oily\combination skin that serves as a good makeup base too! I love using it as a base while strobing ;) :D
