Has the product lived up to the expectations?
The Lakme Skin Whitening Serum has micro crystals and some vitamins that help in brightening the skin. The additional ingredients of the serum help in nourishing the skin and giving a charming look to the face. Most of the user reviews suggest that although the effects of the cream is significant, it is just temporary. The serum promises to help the users get a whiter tone of skin. But it does not actually work for that. Yes it makes the skin a few tones lighter and results in a glowing skin, but this effect is temporary. Again, the product has to be strictly used on a regular basis. If one fails to use the Lakme Skin Whitening Serum for a few days, then the results might vary. It is definitely a tough job to use the serum regularly because it i priced on the higher end. Apart from these, the product has performed very well. The product is suitable for almost all skin types and is a great summer partner as has been suggested by many user reviews.

Choosing the right kind of packaging to attract the customers has been one of the tricks of all the cosmetic brands including Lakme. The Lakme Skin Whitening Serum comes in a bottle pack that is sleek with a silver coloured pump dispenser on the top. Operation of the pump dispenser is smooth and hassle free. With every push, the dispenser gives out just the right amount of serum for the user. The sleek packaging helps the users to carry the pack around in their handbags easily.
Texture and appearance
The serum is extremely light on skin. It is so light that the initial impressions of the users would suggest negative results. But the serum works wonders. The serum starts working right from the first week of use. The good part of the cream is that it is great for people with dry skin and keeps the skin hydrated. A moisturizer can also be used with the serum if necessary. The serum acts a great base for the effectiveness of a BB Cream.
