So after using a many types of BB creams from different brands I have now been trying a CC cream for the first time! It is the Lakmé 9 to 5 CC Color Transform Cream! I have been using it pretty much on days when I have to run for some errands to be done or just when I don’t want to wear makeup but still want even skin-tone and some sun protection. So today I am going to talk and tell you about my experience with this CC Color Transform cream!
About The Looks!
The CC cream comes in a tube form packed in a bright pink glossy box which has all the information such as name of the brand, product, ingredients, quantity, etc. The squeezy tube has an white and beige ombre print, which depicts the color transformation. I really like the sleek and ombre packaging! The rose gold cap makes it look even more pretty!!

My experience and views about the Lakmé 9 to 5 CC Color Transform Cream!
The cream comes with a very interesting and innovative (as far as I know) concept and technique. The cream is white in color and has micro-particles which you can see in the cream and in the picture if you look carefully. So when you start applying this cream on the face these particles feel a little gritty, but soon the grittiness goes away.
The other thing I noticed while applying is that it looks pretty white just like a sunscreen when you start massaging the cream, but then after a few moments of massaging it pretty much goes away. It does instantly brightens up the face and evens out the skin tone, but having said, remember its not a super high-coverage concealer, so it won’t cover any dark spots or dark pigmentation on your skin. However, it will certainly minimize the strength of those in appearance.
So what happens I believe is that those micro-particles in the cream start dissolving into the cream when you massage it on your face and transform the white cream into the beige color which matches our skin, covering any uneven part of the skin tone.
The cream has SPF 30 with PA ++ which is good but then remember to reapply it after every 2-3 hours! The cream has been very skin friendly, it does not gives a matte finish but it isn’t greasy either. It provides the perfect moisturization required. It did not cause any irritation or break outs on my skin so I am pretty happy with it!
I would say this is an everyday cream which protects your skin from sun while moisturizing and instantly brightening up the face and neutralizing any uneven skin tone that one might have!
This has become my most reached everyday kind of cream when I want to go out to run some errands or when I don’t want to apply makeup. It brightens up the face, leaving it well moisturized and well protected from the sun. I would certainly recommend this cream to everyone, it is absolutely worth a try!
