With the commencement of summer, there are two things that I find extremely important. One: drinking lots of fluids and keeping myself hydrated; second: paying attention to my skin and adopting a skincare regimen that will keep it looking dewy, healthy and uber nourished—without it getting greasy and oily during the hot, humid months. Since I am always on the lookout for new products, I decided to try out the just launched Lakmé Matte Moist Range. Needless to say I was impressed. The range encompasses a toner, moisturiser and a clay mask that promises to nourish your skin, whilst keeping it matte. Sounds dreamy right?
Scroll down below for all the deets.
Infused with the goodness of Green Tea (acts as an anti-oxidant) and Witch Hazel (tighten pores), the Lakmé 9 To 5 Moist Matte Mattifying Face Toner quickly absorbs into the skin & tightens pores for a matte-looking skin.
My verdict: Post cleansing my skin, I sprayed the toner on a cotton ball and swiftly glided it all over face and neck with gently upward strokes. I did feel a very light tingly, cool feeling and my skin appeared more refreshed as if it just drank a gallon of cucumber water. The product also tightened my pores and left it looking really matte, but not dry.
Clinically proven to keep skin looking matte for 12 hours, the Lakmé 9 To 5 Matte Moist Mattifying Moisturiser encompasses a blend of Green Tea extracts and Witch Hazel that controls oil and blurs pores for moisturized, matte looking skin.
My verdict: As I started applying the moisturizer on my face and neck, I was quite taken by the light-weight formulation that melted into my skin and left no greasy residue behind. Perfect for the summer when our skin starts feeling oily!
This one encompasses powerhouse ingredients such as Green Tea which is an anti-oxidant and Glycerin that is a moisturizing agent; add to that Kaolin & Bentonite Clay which helps absorb dirt and impurities — and you have a mask that removes dullness, tighten pores and keeps skin looking moisturized. PS: It’s suitable for all skin types.
My verdict: I have a thing for clay masks and this one checked all the boxes for me. After cleansing my skin, I applied it on my face and neck, avoiding the eye contour area. After 10 mins I gently massaged using my fingertips while rinsing it off with lukewarm water. My skin felt uber fresh, bright with visibly shrunk pores. PS: Unlike other clay masks, this one doesn’t dry out your skin!
