VLCC Enbrighten Peeling Night Cream-Review

By Kanthi

Hello lovely ladies,

This is my first review for IMBB and I’m super excited. I’ve been following IMBB since a year and a half and not even single day passes without me visiting this site. Thanks a lot everyone for all your wonderful reviews which have always made my job to find good products easy.Ok now.. Here goes the review. The product I chose to review today is VLCC “Enbrighten”’ Peeling Night Cream.

My Opinion about VLCC Enbrighten Peeling Night Cream:

I have always had a love hate relationship with VLCC. Some of the products like their pedicure kit have done wonders and a few like “Orris Root” Face wash have done more bad than good. I have used the cream for over two months after which it got over. Now that I have used it for so long. I can review it well (I think).

This night cream comes in a yellow packaging and a transparent tub with a silver lid. The packaging is nothing great but it is hatke from the VLCC style of packaging. The cream has a waxy consistency and feels really heavy when applied on the face. It takes a lot of product too.

My face being oily and pimple prone I always get attracted to thing which say “peeling” because I constantly search for products which can do something to my pimple marks. If you’ve got a suggestion please do mention it in your comments. Its consistency is so thick that my face gets all white patches after applying.

Now the pros and cons….

Pros of VLCC Enbrighten Peeling Night Cream:

  • This cream gives me a glowing face each morning after I wake up.
  • It did not break me out as long as I was using it.
  • As soon as I apply it, it gave me slight tingling sensation which makes me feel like it’s actually working on my skin and doing something to it.
  • It has a nice berryish fragrance, which I like.
  • My marks have lightened by 10% or so.

Cons of VLCC Enbrighten Peeling Night Cream:

  •  The tub like packaging which is extremely unhygienic.
  •  It has not done any wonders to my skin nor to my blemishes.
  • Only key ingredients have been mentioned. I wonder what has given it such waxy consistency.It gives white patches on face. Not sure if they vanish after sometime, as I go to bed as soon as I apply it.
  • Doesn’t live up to its claim that it evens out skin tone. It did nothing to my tan. Due to its thick consistency, I feel that my skin is not allowed to breathe when I wear it.

Now the big question- Will I repurchase this product? :

Mmm I don’t think so. I’m now hunting for a new and effective night cream

IMBB Rating:

2.5/5

Great review Kanthi! I am not very fond of VLCC brand myself..
You can try using a baking soda scrub on your acne prone skin..it helps lighten the blemishes and clears up blackheads too. :)

I think Lotus Herbals Papayablem will help you. It is light and never broke out my acne prone, oily skin.
