LAKMÉ 9to5 INSTA LIGHT Crème Reviews!


A high performance crème + powder formula that not only gives you instant skin glow and fairness but with a perfectly radiant set finish. Looking flawless is just a few strokes of Insta Light away. Unleash the sheen within your skin and be picture perfect no matter what with this wonder cream

  • Brightens and evens out skin tone.
  • Moisturizes from within “


When I read about this I assumed it to be a affordable and daily replacement of Lakmé CC creams along with the promise of moisturization and sunscreen benefits. The packaging is quite simple, a sleek silver tube with a twist cap in a box packaging. The tube is very travel friendly and convenient to carry in purse. it has a nozzle which dispenses regulated amount of product as required.

The product is light pink in color very much resembling like Ponds White Beauty creme. It has a floral fragrance and people with sensitive nose might not like it as it lingers for quite some time. I however was not bothered by it very much.

The texture is very powdery and light weight. One has to be real quick in application of this cream as this blends and sets in the skin within no time. If cream is taken in more than required amount or not applied quickly it can leave a whitish powdery effect on the skin. The best way I would recommend to use this cream would be the application in dot method. The skin does have a slight glow and matte effect for upto 2 hours but to so little extent that it can go unnoticed by others. Another disappointment was that this cream has no moisturizing factor at all. It would be not be liked by dry skinned ladies in winters as it leaves the skin extremely dry.

Also, the SPF protection factor is nowhere mentioned on the packaging which is strange. So it would be better to use it as a base topped with a sunscreen in summers.

I would recommend this only to normal and combination skin and that too in summers. Also, dark skinned beauties should refrain from this one as it can leave a white ghastly powdery effect.


  1. Very cheap and affordable.
  2. Sleek and travel friendly packaging.
  3. Good to use in summers.
  4. Absorbs nicely leaving a matte effect.
  5. Keeps skin oil-free for 2-3 hours.


  1. Contains Parabens.
  2. No moisturizing agents.
  3. Not recommended for dry skin.
  4. SPF factor of sunscreen is nowhere mentioned.
  5. The brightening effect diminishes considerably after a couple of hours.
  6. Not recommended for dark complexioned beauties.

VOTE: 2/5
