It’s been a while I haven’t written anything here. Reasons are many if I want to mention but I feel guilty for being out of action in something which I started so passionately.
Anyway, slip-ups once in a while happens so it’s all in the game. So moving on to today’s review it is on a tan removal cream or bleach from Nature’s Essence company – Lacto bleach.
The reason for me to use this was, I felt my skin/face was getting tanned day by day due to exposure to sun and dirt. So without much thought I purchased this.
Company Claims: Enriched with Milk Proteins and Honey this bleach cream helps remove the epidermal sun tan, thereby restoring the natural fairness of the skin and also preventing pigmentation due to harmful sun. This bleach is totally ammonia free formula, it does not bleach the hair, and it bleaches the skin and removes the tan and gives clear smooth skin. Its matt effect is ideal for hot climates, keeping the skin safe from the harmful effect of the sunrays and restoring the glow.
Price: Rs. 100/- INR for 50 gms tub.
Shelf Life: 3 years.
Availability: These are easily available in online stores and also any store which sells beauty supplies.
My Thoughts: It is a golden coloured pearl finish cream and I started using this cream without any high expectations. As mentioned on the tub, I applied it on my full face and neck and left for 15 minutes. Later I washed my face with normal water by massaging in circular motion.
I have to tell that, I was surprised by the results. My face was much brighter just after removing the cream and I was head over heels thinking that I have found a great product which is affordable and delivers the results.
But wait, the results lasted only for few minutes – say 30-40 mints and later I was left with my original skin tone without any additional brightness which was present immediately after washing this cream.
So, if the results are so temporary then what’s the point in applying this and leaving for 15 minutes?
I can say, this is for moments where we need to get ready for a party and in need of that instant tan free look. We can apply this bleach cream and later go ahead with makeup.
How I Use: I cleaned my face with a micellar water and then with face wash and on a clean face applied this cream all over the face and neck. After 15 minutes washed with plain water.
Lightens the complexion.
Mess free – in the sense no need to mix any ingredients. Just open the lid and apply the cream.
As claimed by the company, it doesn’t bleach the hair.
No ammonia present.
Great as a pre makeup pack to remove tan.
Pocket friendly (cost effective).
The effects are very temporary.
The pack says it to apply every day – which I feel is too much for my skin to bear.
Similar effect may be achieved from many homemade remedies which I feel is safe and chemical free.
