Lakme Peach Milk Moisturiser - Review


I take on another favourite, popular moisturiser today - Lakme Peach Milk Moisturizer.

It claims:
Formulated with natural peach extracts, Lakme Peach Milk Moisturiser leaves your skin radiantly soft.
Natural peach extract contains Vitamins and Pectin which tone and hydrate skin, giving it a natural glow.
AHA's and Antioxidants (Vitamin C and E) work to condition and rejuvenate your skin.

Key Ingredients: Tocopheryl Acetate (Vit. E Acetate), Tocopherol (Vit. E), Peach (Prunus Persica) Extract.”


Pros:
1. Light and absorbs easily into the skin
2. Light fragrance
3. Quite economical and available in a number of sizes
4. Moisturizes hands/feet quite well. Sinks in quickly.

Cons:
1. Just so-so. Some people seem to swear by it. It was really not "The Holy Grail Moisturizer" for me.
2. Incomplete list of ingredients on the package. I find it hard to believe that this moisturizer comprises only these 3 innocent ingredients. 
3. No added benefits of spf protection. 

Will I re-purchase: Maybe. I may just keep it around as a basic moisturizer to, you know, use in emergencies (like pulling out tight finger rings) or for the hands, arms & legs. But not for the face. Maybe I am too demanding. I just think that this should offer me a little more, like spf. 

Promotional offer: Lakme has an offer going on where they are giving out free lip glosses on purchase of all their moisturizers. 

Price: 60ml, Rs. 55

  2. Tanveer, to b honest; I hate the scent of this! It was like rotten tomatoes :) so tossed it out!
    Staying power is ok, but I cant imagine that scent on me. The consistency is kinda runny, wat do u say? Thats quite a promotion, girlie :) Sad part is I cant get hold :(

  3. I have been using this moisturizer for years now and I am quite addicted to it. :) It works great as a basic moisturizer on my skin and yes, ingredients transparency has always been an issue with all Lakme's products. I wonder why are they so secretive about it. There are better products around that don't mind listing a full list. I just got over with my moisturizer bottle. Waiting to buy it with the free lipgloss.

    Regarding giving away the free lipgloss- There were a lot of issues about their sqaured shaped lipgloss packaging. The lipgloss was leaking badly from the containers. So I guess they are clearing the stock. Otherwise it does not make sense to give an expensive lipgloss free with such a cheaper product.

  4. I agree with Rati, Tanvi. Many people complained of the lip gloss leakage. Is it the same one they r trying to give away. Still, I dont mind trying. I wont use them for travel, may be make them stand in a gloss rack :) thanq rati for the info :)

  7. @ Rati & Divija: Hey Rati!! thks for tht great bit of investigation, and inference! I think u r absolutely right..

    Coz even i cld not understand why they are giving away such expensive lip glosses with moisturizers half their value.. But u cracked it Rati & Divija..

    Frankly I have two-three of these lip glosses.. I really like the no. 21 lip gloss & carry it with me all the time in my purse.. Have never had this issue of leakage.. But know tht i know frm u guys tht it can happen, I guess i'll just poly-pack it separately...

  9. Tanveer,

    I was myself laughing after reading Divija's comment. :P I love the moisturizer and I was consoling myself by thinking that since I have never smelled rotten tomatoes so it's okay, I can live with the smell. ROFL!

    I also have two of the Lakme's lipglosses and so far they haven't leaked. But I take an extra bit of precaution and carry them in a poly.
