Hello all IMBB beauties, hope you all had a wonderful Dussehra and looking forward for a vibrant Diwali! I am a silent reader of this blog and I must admit it has given me many insights regarding make up and skin care. So this time when I was looking for a de-pigmentation product to buy I saw this VLCC face mask, but could not locate any review. So I thought why not I be the guinea-pig this time and contribute to this awesome review pool… 🙂 And here goes my review for VLCC De-pigmentation Face Mask.
Unique formulation enriched with Saffron Extract and Sunflower oil, which penetrates the skin efficiently and promotes cell turnover. Saffron is known to improve complexion & bring radiance to skin and Sunflower oil has excellent emollients properties which nourishes the skin and reveals a smooth softer and clean skin.

My Experience with the VLCC De-pigmentation Face Mask
I have an combination skin with oily T-zone and dry area near chin, So every time I apply a face pack for oily skin I end up having a dry chin area and face packs for dry skin give me breakouts.:( With lot of efforts nowadays I don’t have breakouts but 2/3 stubborn marks was giving me irritation and thereby thought of some de-pigmentation mask. So let’s check my experience with this mask.
It is slightly creamy one and spreads evenly on face. It gives me no tingling sensation after application. It dries within 10-12 minutes and can be washed off easily. I am using it twice a week and I tried this pack for past 4 weeks. I normally do a proper cleaning, scrubbing, massaging and followed by face mask/pack once/twice a month and rest of the times I just apply the pack as per instructions written and wash off. I normally use a water base moisturiser after applying any face pack.
After using I can surely say, it improved my complexion (although I am not sure about removing dead cell part as it claims because I use a separate scrubber).It has surely faded the stubborn marks on my face to some extent and I am hoping continuous usage will show better result.
And I loving this one as because I tried most of the home remedies like lemon, honey tomato etc., to remove marks and none of them worked and I somehow love to think that saffron and vitamin C are in my face mask.( mental satisfaction! ..;))
