Lakme CC cream vs *New* Lakme 9to5 CC cream

Hello guys!! Lakme came out with new improved** CC cream and I wanted to see what is “improved” in it.
I love the old cc cream and I’m using it since it was launched. It’s great for everyday use, light weight, medium coverage, conceals pretty much fine.

Claims for new Lakme 9to5 CC cream:
Instantly protects, Moisturises, Brightens, Evens Skin Tone, Conceals and freshens.

Well the claims are exactly the same as the old one except by the 9to5 tag which makes it more long lasting than the previous one.

The new packaging is hands down better than the previous one, love the rose gold theme of all 9to5 products.

There isn’t much difference in formulation between the both except the consistency of previous one is a bit watery and the new one is a little thicker and stickier which I don’t like. If you don’t set it with good amount of powder you will look like a grease ball.



By mistake I got the shade beige instead of bronze which I thought would be lighter but because it is a cc cream it doesn’t look cakey or whitish on skin. After applying it blends into the skin and doesn’t feel you have applied anything even when it’s a lill light for me.

I wanted to take the 9to5 test so I wore it the whole day to college to see it lasts the whole day. After a whole day of lectures and tiresome practicals I was really surprised when I saw my self in the mirror. I was looking like I had a bath in oil. My face was so greasy and so oily that I was looking terrible, it never happens to me when I wear original one. I was really disappointed.

1. Greater SPF.
2. Great for dry skin.
3. Affordable, easily available.
4. Good coverage and stands by all its claim.

1. Not at all 9to5 product.
2. Not good for oily skin.
3. Sticky consistency.
4. Cakes of into patches and creases in fine lines.

So if you are looking for a good cc cream go for it if you have normal to dry skin to get a nice glowy dewy look but if you are oily skinned like me go for original one ( though that too is a bit oily but doesn’t cakes or creases like new one). And make sure pack it with powder.

Update: I still stick with my previous opinion but may have found a way tp make it work by using a primer are making it wor slowly in small amounts and loads of powder to set. The texture is same as previous one. The small tube lasts for a long time as I’m still using it and much is left.
