Most of you must have heard about Cosmedic by now with the reviews on blogosphere..it is a brand formulated, tested and approved by dermatologists. Most of their products contain Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) which helps with pigmentation and dullness..
Cosmedic Lumifast Brightening Minute Mask is the one with highest AHA i.e 10%
It comes in a small jar with a narrow opening and a cap in between..its a thick off white paste and has a slight acidic smell.
A very thin layer of it needs to be applied..and it goes transparent on the skin within a minute..I keep it for 5-10 minutes…sometimes 10, sometimes 5..it stings at few places and even after washing off, it feels itchy for a few minutes..
I do see some brightening with it..but not much difference on the acne scars..I have recently got 2-3 pimples which have left scars..and I am trying everything for them to fade..I have used this 3-4 times by now..like once-twice in a week..but not too much difference on the scars.
1. Brand formulated, tested and approved by dermatologists..so quite reliable.
2. Caters to all skin types and skin problems.
3. Free of hydroquinone, steroids, and other irritating demelanizing agents. Hypoallergenic, Non-Comedogenic and Oil-Free
4. Brightens the skin and does help in combating dullness.
5. Perfect when used before some special events, parties, etc
6. Quick and easy to use..just 5-10 minutes.
7. Cruelty free and vegan.
1. Not much difference on pigmentation..i.e my acne scars…would update if I notice some changes.
2. Narrow jar opening makes it a little difficult to remove the product.
3. Expensive..this 50g jar can be used 6-7 times max I guess..
4. Glow stays for a day or two.
5. Availability is an issue.
Can be bought HERE. Overall I found this good for some special occasions..like a quick facial or something to give that glow just before the event..but I did not notice any major change or any much of a difference in pigmentation..its a decent pack..I would recommend it for some occasion.
Value for money: 3.5/5
Overall Rating: 3.5/5
Would I buy it again: May be..
P.S: PR Sample. Honest Review.
