VLCC Insta Glow Herbal Bleach Review

VLCC Insta Glow Herbal Bleach

I had been using the same pink-colored Fem bleach for ages now. I wanted a change desperately!! So, the other day, I was checking out some brands. This VLCC Insta Glow Herbal Bleach caught my attention. I checked the ingredients and was happy to see a few herbal additives to the normal bleach chemicals. I got a post-bleach face pack also with it, although that didn’t last for more than once.

VLCC INSTA GLOW HERBAL BLEACH

Product Claims:

Makes skin look fairer and healthy in about 10 minutes. The unique Insta glow herbal bleach not only bleaches facial hair to perfectly match the skin tone but also deep cleanses the skin of all the impurities. It is enriched with herbal extracts of cucumber, seaweed and tomato that act as vial nutrient for the skin.

It helps maintain a clear and even skin tone with radiant, healthy complexion with a 2 step action:
• Firstly its gentle formula camouflages hair to match skin color, enhancing natural fairness in just about 10 minutes.
• Secondly, the multivitamins presents in vegetable extracts of Cucumber, Sea weed, Tomato give nutrition to the skin with anti tan benefits, so that it glows with natural health.

Price:

Rs 45 for 27 gms or (4 times use).

Shelf Life:

18 months and appropriate for all skin types.

Ingredients:

Bleach ingredients

As you can see, the ingredients include cucumber extracts in the bleach cream. Post-bleach pack has all herbal ingredients for instant glow of skin.

My Experience with VLCC Insta Glow Herbal Bleach:

My skin is too sensitive, I have to think twice before putting any sort of beauty product on my face. Almost anything in this world can trigger the onset of zits on my face. So, that way, I am always too scared of using anything new. I had used VLCC face packs and scrubs before, so I could trust the brand for the facial bleach. I had kept my fingers crossed, but everything went well; the result was an instant glow.

I found the cream a little difficult to spread, sort of lumpy.  The cream and the powder activator are green in color. The activator has silver sparkle in it. It has a strange kind of fragrance to it, I tried hard to figure out, but could not decode. Instructions are provided in the kit. Although, the mixture has to be made in the standard 10:1 ratio; the bleach was not at all irritating on the skin, but don’t know why my eyes were watering too much.  I could hear the bubbly sound also. It was difficult to keep it on for even 10 minutes. Somehow, I could manage and washed it right away.

Now, removing the bleach was even a bigger task. As I mentioned earlier also that the cream was not very soft and smooth, I had to literally rub it off with wet towel, but the results were amazing I must say that. I almost forgot all the runny eyes and the hard time I had removing it.

Now, was the time to apply the after-bleach pack, which was very soothing. My skin didn’t feel stretchy or dry.  The face pack has nice rosy fragrance to it.

Now, let me summarize the pros and cons:

Pros of VLCC Insta Glow Herbal Bleach:

  • Gives an instant glow to the skin.
  • Contains herbal ingredients which are soothing to the skin.
  • Post-bleach pack pacifies the effect of bleach on your skin.
  • Does not sting or irritate.
  • Suitable for all skin types.
  • Sufficient quantity of bleach cream and activator.

Cons of VLCC Insta Glow Herbal Bleach:

  • Bleach cream is not smooth, in fact, it is lumpy and difficult to spread.
  • My eyes were watering all the time that the bleach was on my face.
  • Difficult to remove, it sort of sticks to your face.
  • Quantity of post-bleach pack is too less, they should give more than one sachet.
  • Very strange kind of smell, not at all herbal.
  • The bleach cream tub had no inside lid, so when I opened, it had already spilled.

Rating:

2.5/5.

I don’t think I would be repurchasing it; I had too many problems with the bleach.

Hope you enjoyed reading.

Hiii Shipiiii….

Actually Shivani…The movie Rockstar is 3 Good + 4 Bad things!! But the good things are overpowering the other bad things

Bad things:

1) Poor story and screenplay :| :|
2) Too much editing :methinks:
3) Confusing and complicated storyline. :zombiekiller: :zombiekiller: :zombiekiller: :zombiekiller:
4) Nargis Fakri’s acting and poor dialogue delivery :ghost: :ghost: :ghost: :ghost: :ghost: :ghost:

Good things:

1) Songs :jiggy1: :jiggy1: :jiggy1: :jiggy1: :jiggy1: :jiggy1:
2) Ranbir Kapoor’s acting – The best performance so far. :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: He is made for the character…..just amazing!!!!!
3) Nargis Fakri’s dresses – Kashmiri Firans and earrings!! :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:

Cute movie..a little drag in the end but very Tintinish feel… if you’ve read the comics you’d love it :) Do watch it in 3D otherwise half the fun would be gone :)

Kimi November 14, 2011 at 11:05 am

I’ve to check now..whether we have it in 3D at PVR here… :thanks: Sanjeev jee!! :)

Meera November 14, 2011 at 10:34 am

I am not sure if they give a similar bleach with their facial kits. I got one free with the Pearl facial kit and it burnt my face horribly. I am not stepping near VLCC bleaches, for sure. :(

Reply

Kimi November 14, 2011 at 10:35 am

Hey Meera..even I got Pearl facial kit..but no bleach in that..

Now Thank God I didn’t get that face burning bleach!! :tremble:

see…advertisemtns are so useful……that’s why i don’t go to multiplexes to watch movies…i watch on tv O:) O:) O:)

Reply

Kimi November 14, 2011 at 11:03 am

I toh usually change channels when ads start coming and then I forget about the movie completely and start watching something else…when some ad break comes in that channel and I begin flipping channels again, then I come back to what I was originally watching and feel bad about missing half an hour of it!! :((

Reply

Sanjeev November 14, 2011 at 11:04 am

Very nice Jomol ji… the whole experience of going out, watching a movie, and having fun with friends is completely insignificant when compared with a dishwasher with a free scrubber O:)

aruna November 14, 2011 at 11:21 am

me too Devilgal. I am yet to find a VLCC product that worked for me.o much so than even their Rose water toner was pretty bad. Unfortunately VLCC is available at my local grocery store also so sometimes i have tried it just becos it was there :)

and with bleaches, i stick to Jolen. I tried some other gold bleach thing after reading fantastic reviews on IMBB but it broke me out and I have sworn to never use any other bleach but Jolen :)
