VLCC Diamond Facial Kit Review

by Taps on May 26, 2011 · 71 comments

Hello IMBB Sweeties! :-*

I am seriously getting benefits from all your reviews and haul posts, am better able to choose products and make wise decision while shopping these days. IMBB has introduced me to several new makeup brands, of which I was never aware of. :thanks: :pompom: :balle:

This time I am reviewing VLCC Diamond Facial Kit from Salon Premium Range. I have used Gold Facial kit from Nature’s Essence, but after seeing Shahnaz Husain Diamond Facial kit, I really wanted to buy that but my budget did not allow me to. :(( I spotted this kit on the shelf, when I was shopping. After seeing the word Diamond Facial Kit, I just could not stop myself and bought it despite my tight budget. :D :tongue:
vlcc diamond facial kit
Price– Rs 195

VLCC Insta Glow Bleach 25.7 g

My Experience

My overall experience was good, not outstanding I would say. The first sachet of the kit is what I did not like much. It was damn oily, it did not go even after repeated cleansing. :spank: :pan: This kit, is not for those with oily skin. But after using the rest of the sachets, my skin texture improved a lot and it was well toned and fresh. I loved its tightening effect on my skin. But the effect, doesn’t stay after two days. :( :waaa: The silver sparkles which they call Diamond bhasma were sticking all over my face, which looked as if I have applied a shimmer. Each of the sachets can be used twice but there is issue of contamination. I am planning to buy Nature’s Essence Diamond Facial kit soon.

Pros of VLCC Diamond Facial Kit

-First of all price at Rs195 is very reasonable for a Diamond Facial kit from VLCC Salon premium range.
-You get enough content which would last for two facial sessions.
-It contains Diamond Bhasma which has detoxifying properties and gives youthful appearance.
-Did not break me out even once.
-Improves skin texture to a great extent. :preen:
-My skin was even toned. :makeup:
-Extremely good for sagging and matured skin.
-Not suitable for oily skin.
-I got VLCC Oxy Bleach worth Rs 60 absolutely free with this kit. :yahoo:
-Fragrance is mild, not that strong.

Cons of VLCC Diamond Facial Kit

-The Diamond scrub is extremely oily, I have never used anything this oily on my face till date. :shocked:
-I had expected it to do wonders, but I think I expected more than I should have.
-I don’t much like the silver sparkles or Diamond Bhasma on my skin, looks unnatural on my face.
-Its effect would last for maximum two days. After that Jaise ka taisa :yelo:

Rating: 3/ 5
Will I repurchase it? :nonono: :nono: No, I won’t as there are better options available than this.

Thank you very much Sweeties, take care all of you!! :)) :balle: :pompom: :balle:

typo* :yikes: – BP near my place, price of des facial kits

Reply

Tapaswini Swain May 26, 2011 at 1:19 pm

Yaaaaaa it happens that way dear, for e.g when you do hair spa at salon say by loreal , they charge above 1000, but if you buy spa cream, you can use 8-10 times at Rs 625 and bit more for the serum, its the same for facials too.

I have the fruit kit….and I like it a lot. Its good for oily skin.
I also get carried away with gold and diamond. But for oily skinned girls like me…I guess fruit detox is the best facial. I will review the fruit one now. :))
Nice review!! :yes: :yes:

Reply

Tapaswini Swain May 26, 2011 at 1:24 pm

Fruit one is for oily skin kya??? Thank god I didnt buy the one SA showed me, the fruit thing fascinates me a lot, my skin is normal to dry can I use it?????? ?:)

Reply

Jinal May 26, 2011 at 1:37 pm

Like it is more clarifying because of the vitamins and fruit acids. And with personal experience its perfect for oily skin. I don’t know if it would make dry skin more drier. But it does reduce oiliness. So depends how dry is your skin!! :)

Rati May 26, 2011 at 1:13 pm

not suitable for oily skin, matlab would be good for my dry skin. :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: Bt tapaswini it’s kinda hard for me to digest abt all these diamond glow facials.. I mean if there was real diamond would they sell it so cheap? :methinks:

Reply

Tapaswini Swain May 26, 2011 at 1:26 pm

Its not diamond, its diamond bhasma, sorry Rati couldn’t post the pic,but in the kit pack,there is a certificate of purity conferred by UPA pharma.

Rati May 26, 2011 at 1:30 pm

Is it Magique????? I have used their under eye gel, its so harsh, it feels like applying chilly powder into eyes !!

Nice review Tapaswini..My mum had picked up this kit- it had 6 sets of the 4 packets for 6 facials and it was for Rs 1500 ard. I tried one of them and did not find it that useful…the scrub was so waxy..i had to use so much lathering face wash to remove it from my face! Didn’t do anything great for my skin but did wonders for my mum’s skin. I think its meant for mature skin and works best on it.
