Hi girls! How are you all? Today’s review features a product from VLCC! Now, I’ve heard VLCC products don’t usually work, so let’s see if this scrub was any different!
Rs 215 for 100 g or 3.52 oz
Claims of the Scrub:
My Take on VLCC Skin Defense Indian Berberry Face Scrub:
The scrub is cream based so it’s quite thick – like a slightly thick paste. It feels a bit heavy when I start to apply it on my face. The scrub particles are slightly sharp and can hurt if you rub too hard. It takes a while to wash off the scrub completely because of the thick consistency. It has a very fruity refreshing fragrance with a hint of banana.
Not only does it scrub off the dead skin, it is EXTREMELY moisturizing. Again, I guess this is because the scrub has a cream base. My skin felt hydrated – almost to the point of feeling greasy when I washed it off. Now that is a FIRST for my dry skin! My skin usually feels very stretchy and flaky after using a face wash so this is a huge plus point. The greasiness wore off after about half an hour but my skin still felt quite moisturized. I felt like I had used a heavy moisturizer on my skin! But this made me wonder how it works on oily skinned beauties.
When I use this at night before sleeping, I can notice the effects of the scrub even the next morning and for hours after. My skin looks radiant and clean the whole day :D I don’t know if you can notice in the photos, but my hand is looking a lot smoother after using the scrub on it. :)
What I like about this Scrub?:
- Gently removes dead cells and exfoliates my skin
- Moisturizes my skin
- Did not break me out
- Makes my skin glow
- Contains natural ingredients (No parabens!)
- Fruity fragrance
What I didn’t like about this Scrub?:
- Priced slightly on the higher side
- Scrub particles are a bit rough so may hurt sensitive skin if not used gently (I’m just nitpicking here!)
MABH Rating: 5/5
I love this scrub and it’s one of the best scrubs I have used till date. I have never used anything quite like it and I really appreciate the fact that, after I shelled out 215 bucks for it, it got me results. It does everything it claimed and makes my skin look rejuvenated and refreshed, without drying it out.
Do I recommend this Scrub?:
I think this is a great scrub for dry skinned girls and combination skin girls who tend to get dry skin when the weather becomes slightly cool. Although the scrub says it’s for all skin types, I would perhaps not recommend for oily skinned beauties. It might work for them but I feel this will probably make their skin greasy. Hope you all liked the review! :)
