Hold your breath because I am going to tell you about a magic potion that cures all ills. It is age old. Tried and tested. Perfect for Indian skin problems and complexion issues.
Give it up for (drum rolls please…) Vicco turmeric skin cream. Tada!
Figure 1: One tube down already, purchased new one day before.
Remember the age old jingle? Vicco turmeric, nahi cosmetic… Well, the jingle sums up the benefits of this product wonderfully. I purchased it recently about a month back and it is my current skin cream, which has replaced a 2000 bucks dermalogica tinted moisturizer.
About me – oily, sensitive skinned damsel, in distress because of a breakout prone skin and enlarged pores. Read on about how this product turns me into Cinderella.
What the website says about Vicco Turmeric Skin Cream: VICCO has combined the goodness of Turmeric which is said to prevent the penetration of ultra violet rays of the sun into the skin and thus maintains the original color of the pigment of the skin, with the richness of pure Sandalwood Oil which is supposed to be the most cooling element in Vicco Turmeric Cream. The production process is described on the site! What amazing confidence in the product by the makers.
Ingredients: Turmeric and Sandalwood oil
My experience with Vicco Turmeric Skin Cream:
I use it after I wash my face. I was using it twice a day, but since my skin has become better, I have been alternatively using this and Lacto Calamine. It was a goldmine for 125INR. The quantity is huge as you can see. Texture is that of a thick cold cream but is not heavy at all on the face.
The first thing I noticed after using this product is that it gives a nice matte finish that only makes your skin look softer as the day progresses. Next, I noticed that the pigmentation is reduced considerably. My skin feels and looks softer and fairer with an even skin tone. I noticed it has made my face and neck of the same color, earlier I had a much darker neck than face. It discourages pimples and fades away scars too. There is reduction in blackheads as well.
I tried it on emerging pimple, but it kind of stung just a week bit so I replaced it with lacto calamine for spot treatment. Also, I noticed its effectiveness has decreased just a little bit since I have been using it for over a month now. I guess my skin has got too used to it and its time to switch things up a bit.
Packaging and fragrance:
Packaging is very convenient. It’s a simple tube. The color is yellowish and if you use it in combination with haldi-besan, it may stain your face a bit. So do that at night if you really want to. Fragrance is very nice and is a blend of turmeric and sandalwood. Quite strong though. If I walk into a room wearing it, my parents say what are you wearing? 😀
Pros of Vicco Turmeric Skin Cream:
1. Very effective for pimples, blemishes and inflammation
2. Reduces scars and pigmentation. The only product that works on scars!
3. Turmeric is supposed to be good to remove facial hair, so I believe with regular use, one may experience a reduction in facial hair
5. Easily available at your local kirana store
6. Age old product, being used for over a 100 years.
7. Ensures soft and fair skin
Cons of Vicco Turmeric Skin Cream:
1. May stain very fair faces
2. No spf, if that’s a consideration for you
3. Per the law of diminishing marginal utility, effectiveness has decreased a bit in the second month of continued usage. Will it continue to dip? I really hope not.
Would I recommend it? Totally
Would I purchase it again? Yup!
