Packaging: This moisturiser comes in a tub or jar which is bright yellow in color. This color also represents it’s base ingredient i.e lemon. This jar has a white color screw cap. The moisturizer is available in various variants, so for travelling purpose you can use a smaller one.

My opinion about the product: Company has branded the product as moisturiser but looks like a day cream. Usually moisturiser is runny in nature but it is quite opposite, it has thick consistency like day cream. This moisturiser is white in color, when you apply it, you can feel light lemon fragrance which fades away later.

I used this product for the first time when I was in first year in college. When you apply it, it takes some time to get absorbed in the skin but when it does get absorbed, it gives instant fairer glow. This is the purpose of the cream’s manufacturer and that’s what made me love this cream a lot. The cream’s plus point is that it comes with SPF 15, which would be adored by college and school going girls as they don’t need to invest in Sunscreen + Day cream. All they have to do is buy this single cream.

One thing which this cream had after 2-3 days of application was that it made my face sweat like hell. Initially I thought it was because of summers but soon realized it is because of cream. If we talk of claims company gives then yes it does prove them right but doesn't help in dark spot reduction.

What I like about this product….
1. Is a good moisturiser for combination & oily skin.
2. Easily available in local as well as online markets.
3. Has SPF 15.
4. Does not cause any irritation.
5. Does lighten skin tone to some extent.
6. Has mild lemony fragrance.
7. Provides a nice balance between matte look and dewy look.

What I do not like about this product….
1. Tub packaging can be bit unhygienic.
2. I makes my face sweat like hell.
3 Dark spots reduction claim does not work much.
