Lakme Blush & Glow Strawberry Gel Face Wash Review | Beauty Review | Indian Health Beauty Lifestyle Blogger

Lakme Blush & Glow Strawberry Gel Face Wash has been a popular staple among beauty bloggers for quite some time now. My sister knows my penchant for beauty products and gets me some surprise gifts from time to time, this was a part of a little gift hamper she got for me couple of months ago :) Let us see how this popular face wash fared on my skin!

Packaging of  Lakme Blush & Glow Strawberry Gel Face Wash is very simple, in a transparent tube. It looks nice with bright reddish-pinkish gel inside. The texture of tube is classy, doesn't look cheap at all.

Ingredients list is a long whos-who of chemicals like most face washes (and definitely almost all products from Lakme). Strawberry Extracts is mentioned near the end. Well, cannot complain because they never complained to be a pure/ herbal/ ayurvedic/ natural/ eco-friendly/ exotic ingredients' laden brand.

Claims to gently cleanse skin, wash away dirt and impurities while imparting a blush-like glow thanks to soft cleansing beads and strawberry anti-oxidants. 

Availability of Lakme Blush & Glow Strawberry Gel Face Wash is very common, it is available offline in almost all beauty products selling shops, stores like Big Bazaar, and ofcourse online on every shopping portal such as Amazon for Rs. 195 for 100 grams. My sister bought me this particular piece from Big Bazaar.

Quantity is good, lasts a long time even when used twice everyday. This 50 gm tube lasted me and my sister a complete 1 month because we used it barely once a day for about a fortnight, later on we gave it to our dad who used it sporadically.

Usage - Instructed to first take a small quantity on palm, work a rich lather and then gently massage on face, rinsing it thoroughly. Immediately rinse if it gets into eyes.

Effect - I remember more than a decade ago, I had just started experimenting with beauty products and my favorite face-wash used to be Strawberry face wash from Lakme. It used to have strawberry pulp kind of texture that used to really clean my face, refresh it and yet moisturize it. I used to look forward to come back home and melt away entire day's stress by using it! Back then I was not a blogger nor was social media so huge in our society else I would have recommended it everywhere. It used to smell so nice, fruity, just like strawberries too.

So when I got this I thought the same product was back in a new avatar. But NO! It is completely different. This is not pulpy at all. It is a gel, has a more chemical-y feeling, it completely dries my skin, completely cleans all oil and makes my skin parched. It does deep cleaning but absolutely no glow at all. Very oily skinned people might find it better but combination skin, normal skin may find it drying and dry skinned beauties, please stay away. This will destroy your skin. 

It also has little beads that are probably supposed to lightly exfoliate skin but frankly they did not do any exfoliation on my face, they were very minute so no danger of scratching skin but at the same time I did not find any exfoliating effect. It did give a little tingly minty fresh feeling for couple of minutes.

The only good thing I liked is that it did not increase pimples on my face or give any kind of breakouts/ acne/ allergies. 

I miss the old Lakme strawberry facewash

  • Deep cleans
  • Cleans oil from all pores
  • Lasts a long time
  • No breakouts/ allergies/ acne even on my super-sensitive skin
  • Very easy on the pocket,maybe among the cheapest face washes in the market
  • Very easily available, offline as well as online.

  • Completely dries up skin, a big NO-NO for normal/dry skin
  • Only oily skinned or combination-oily skin people may like this
  • Too much chemical-y feel
  • No blush-glow at all

Recommended -NO! Oily skin people might like it but it made my skin parched like a desert. Rating is 2/5.
