Every girl wants to look presentable and good but applying foundation is not always an option, neither is it good for the skin, nor it is very economical for the wallet. This is where the BB and CC creams come into action. I have tried many such creams and my favorite so far has been Ponds BB cream, but lately, my skin has not been reacting well with the Ponds formula and I really wanted to try something new. Today I’ll be sharing my experience with Lakme 9 to 5 Complexion Care CC Cream.

My Experience with Lakme 9 to 5 Complexion Care CC Cream:
I have always said that I am not particularly fond of Lakme Products, they somehow not tend to suit my skin. I am glad that this CC cream from Lakme at least suited my skin and did not give it any rashes. As the name says, complexion care cream, I expected it to give me a decent coverage helping even out my complexion, and yes, this does work well for evening out the complexion.
It is not something which should be expected to give a full or even a medium coverage, but it does make the skin feel good and hides the redness giving a smooth finish to the skin. Though it might not be the best product for covering acne spots or pigmentation.
The CC cream feels light on the skin. It does not have a long staying power and it might not stay for complete 8 working hours. Also, I am not very fond of using this product in winters, as it tends to make my skin look dry.
Overall, yes I do like the product, though this is not my favorite, it does the work of being a good everyday product and it has not reacted weirdly with my skin.
