Lakme Fruit Moisture Strawberry Kiwi and Passion Fruit Night Cream Review

I had mentioned before that Lakme Launched its New Fruit Moisture Range of Products before winter- HERE. Amongst the range of products belonging to this range, Lakme Fruit Moisture Night Cream was one of them.


Being Honest, I am not regular user of night creams. I have combination skin and I avoid using any kind of cream on my face because it turns my face into a frying pan in a matter of 2 hours. I am too tired by the end of the day to wash my face and then apply night cream regularly on my face before retiring to bed. 


There are very few good days when I have ample of time to fool around - when I religiously pamper my face before going to bed. My pampering session includes the WORKS - cleansing,toning, moisturising( thats when I apply the night cream), followed by application of under eye cream and then retiring to bed. 


I had used Lakme Fruit Moisture Skin Renewal Night Cream before - which badly broke me out. Hence I was very cautious using this night cream on my face.  


Here's How the product fared on my skin--- 




Product: Lakme Fruit Moisture Strawberry Kiwi and Passion Fruit Night Cream
Price & Quantity: 130 INR for 50 gms




What the Company claims: 
Fight Winter Dryness while you sleep with Lakmé Strawberry Night Crème
Wake up to youthful skin with this ultra-nourishing blend of juicy strawberries, 4 Hydrating Agents & 1 Anti-oxidant. Formulated with Nutritiv Moisture Technology, it works with your skin’s natural night-time revival process and implants your cells with moisture for 12-long hours. So when you wake up after a good night’s sleep, you skin will look nourished and youthful.



Usage and Ingredients:


First Look at the Product: 
The Night Cream comes in a white tub- like packaging which has a twist cap top. The cream is light pink in colour. Quite similar to the old Lakme Skin Renewal night cream. 




My Experience with the Product: 
The moment you open the tub - you are first to notice the smell of the cream is which strongly of fruity strawberry smell. The smell tends to linger on for a while. 
The texture of the cream is slightly on the heavier side which is a BIG NO-NO for people with combination skin tone like mine. 
I used this cream for a week - And by the end of 2 days I got 3 breakouts. THANK U for that !! Just when my skin had started becoming clear I had to curse myself for experiment with thick creams again !! 
The first day I applied the cream - I noticed the cream sinks into your skin and keeps your skin moisturised well throughout the night. 
Since the cream was good at keeping skin moisturised, I went overboard into using it every night in hopes of doing some wonder on my skin. 
But by the third day - the cream broke me out and I stopped using it immediately.
I guess the cream will work better with people with dry skin. 
The product is fairly priced and will last long. Also it is travel- friendly. 


Love it or Chuck it ? 
Of course I will Chuck it !!  I am planning to giveaway this cream to my friend with dry skin tone. For people with oily/combination skin tone I would recommend using Himalaya Night Cream.


Please Note: The product was given by the company for consideration.

  15. I have dry and very sensitive skin, and not many skin creams work for me; Neutrogena used to work, but it has all these harmful chemicals! AND they dont work well at night. I would need something much heavier to last the night. I started using the Made from Earth Olive Night Creme and seems to visibly smooth out my skin and leave it with a nice feel.

    The consistency is very light and almost has a "whipped" look to it, and the first time I slathered it on my face and neck it was absorbed in seconds. It has a pleasant aroma, and I especially love it on my neck and upper chest area, which soaks it up like a sponge.

    Well worth having if you like to vary your face creams and try something new, especially if you want a thick night cream.
