Lakme Sun Expert Cucumber and Lemongrass Face Mask

Lakme Sun Expert range consists of products speicifically designed to help protect and soothe the skin exposed to sun damage.  The goodness of cucumber and lemongrass and bright yellow packaging - it was instant attraction.  I have used and reviewed the Lakme Sun Expert face wash earlier, and this face mask is the second product I am trying from this range.

This mask is almost white in colour and creamy in consistency.  It comes packaged in a bright yellow tube with a screw-on cap - simple, no-fuss packaging that I love.  This is quite fragranced and smells the same as the face wash from the same range - am not sure if that is the signature fragrance for the Sun Expert range.

I use it as instructed, spreading the creamy mask on to my face and leaving it on for about 15 minutes.  I wipe off the mask with a warm washcloth and rinse my face with cold water.  Pat dry and follow with my regular moisturizer.

I had a bit of irritation with this mask - like a slight burning - especially around my upper lip area.  This is a common experience for me with most drugstore masks, and I guess it's a reaction to one of the many chemical ingredients that go into these products.  It goes off soon enough as the mask dries and doesn't leave any effect on my face.

Results:  I did not notice any skin lightening as such, but it did manage to get rid of some skin dullness that I had with going out in the sun.  I find this a very basic mask which works well enough for me - I prefer a healthy looking skin to any whitening/lightening effect.  No break-outs or pimples with this, but it didn't dry my skin out either, so that is another plus point.

Cost:  Rs. 150/50 g

Ingredients:

Overall, a basic inexpensive mask that seems perefect for most skin types.  Might be a disappointment if you are expecting some drastic whitening effects, but it does give an evened out healthy look to the skin.
