Face Wash / Clear Pores
The Lakme Clean Up Clear Pores Face Wash comes in a green tube with a flip top lid which is quite sturdy and travel friendly. The face wash itself, is a transparent gel that is meant to clean all visible dirt and impurities and helps control oil. This particular face wash doesn’t lather up much but it does the job of cleaning out all superficial impurities very well. It surely makes the skin feel squeaky clean and leaves behind a nice refreshing feeling without that dry-stretchy skin. The Green Tea fragrance is absolutely delightful. And it does control oil too, but only to a certain extent. In extreme summers, it controlled oil on my T-Zone for about 2 hours which is quite nice.
1. Budget friendly
2. Travel friendly
3. Refreshing Green Tea Fragrance
4. Cleans dirt effectively
5. Not drying
1. Controls oil only for about 2 hrs
Face Scrub / Clear Pores
The Lakme Clean Up Clear Pores Face Scrub has the same packaging as the face Wash from the same range, i.e. green tube with a flip top lid which is sturdy and travel friendly. According to me, scrubbing is absolutely an essential for clearing out clogged pores and get rid of dead cells. This particular scrub has been especially designed for skin that is prone to breakouts and has Salicylic acid to prevent breakouts and fight blemishes. The scrub itself is a white colored emulsion with fine white beads that are very gentle on the skin.
After using the face wash, the scrub has to be massaged on the face for 2-3 mins , avoiding the eye area and then rinsed off. This scrub is perhaps my most favorite product out of the kit because I’ve already finished a tube and going to finish off the second one soon too. It is totally unlike most scrubs that I’ve used till date and the micro-particles are so gentle on the skin but do their job of scrubbing away dead cells very well. There isn’t a thing that I do not like about this scrub. Gives a visibly clearer looking skin post the cleaning routine and I have felt that creams work better on my skin after using this scrub. Also, the skin stays matte for long hours when used in conjunction with the Face Wash. This is a STAR product !!
1. Travel Friendly
2. Budget friendly
3. Micro scrubbing particles which are very gentle on skin.
4. Leaves skin feeling squeaky clean
5. Skin stays matte for long.
6. Gentle and refreshing Green Tea fragrance
7. Clears away dead skin and opens up pores for skin care products to work better by penetrating the skin deeper
Face Mask / Clear Pores
The Lakme Clean Up Clear Pores Face Mask ,again has the same packaging as the other products from the range. It is a greenish white clay Mask with absorbing powers.It also removes excess oil from the face and claims to tightens pores It is supposed to be used once a week in conjunction with the Face Wash and Scrub. The texture is quite easy to work with, and you can apply a thin layer on the face and leave on for a few minutes before washing off.
I like the delicate soothing feelin when the mask is on.I am not really impressed with the Face Mask because there really weren’t any visible effects that I could notice. It just felt like any other clay based face masks that I may have used previously. The skin feels fresh but only for a few minutes after which it is back to normal. I didn’t see any tightening of pores.
1. Travel and budget friendly.
2. Easy to use and spread.
3. Fresh feeling post removal of mask and even when it’s on
4. Fresh Green Tea Fragrance.
1. No visible mattifying effects
2. Didn’t see any tightening of pores
Overall, The Lakme Clean Up Clear Pores Kit (Face Wash, Scrub, Mask) is a great ritual for a nice and easy cleanup at home. While the Face Wash effectively cleans superficial impurities, the scrub sloughs away dead skin and opens up clogged pores. The mask claims to tighten pores but I didn’t notice much of the tightening effect . When all three products are used together, you surely get matte and clean looking skin , and the combined effect may last more than a day which is great considering you can do it at home and at a much lesser cost than a Clean Up at a Salon.
