VLCC Insta Glow Saffron & Honey Bleach Review

By Trina Bhattacharya

Hi all IMBB beauties!

Here I am back with another review. This time I am going to review a bleach by VLCC called ‘Insta Glow Saffron & Honey’. I got this one from online shopping and although knowing the fact no bleach can be completely natural, I could not escape from the honey saffron jargon! Therefore ended up buying this. Let’s see how this bleach worked for me.


Product Claims:

Exfoliate and rejuvenate your skin cells with VLCC Insta Glow Saffron & Honey Bleach pack. This bleach not only bleaches facial hair to perfectly match the skin tone but also deeply cleans the skin of all the impurities.
It is enriched with herbal extracts of honey and saffron that act as vital nutrients for the skin and give it topical nutrition. The goodness of honey evens out the skin tone giving you a flawless complexion while the saffron extracts help reduce dark spots and pigmentation.


Price: INR 118 for 60 grams pack



Pack Details and How to Use:

The pack contains the following:

1. Pre and Post bleach Cream
2. Bleach Cream
3. Activator Powder


Please note as it is said for all bleach please do a patch test before applying to your face.

My Take on VLCC Insta Glow Saffron & Honey Bleach:

I normally use bleach very rarely when I have a bad tan which doesn’t go away in home treatments. I believe that any strong chemical containing product do irreversible harms to your skin but sometimes it is difficult to get result quickly without chemical magic 🙂 So I picked this up before going to attend a function. Pre Bleach Cream texture is little transparent sort of as you can see in the swatch.


After pre bleach cream, I have used activator with bleach cream and applied all over my face and neck. I have kept the mix for about 12 minutes and removed it with wet cloth. Washed my face with cold water (No face wash/soap) and then followed by post bleach pack. I kept the pack for about 6 minutes after which it almost dried. Then I again washed my face with cold water. I felt a normal slight burning sensation as it is for all the bleaches. It doesn’t irritate my eyes and smell is surprisingly pleasant unlike the very strong pungent smell of most of the other bleaches.


Now coming to the result part, it is nothing great however nothing very less. I felt it is a milder bleach and gives somewhat satisfactory result of a short term glow for around 3-4 days. It removes tan to some extent however I feel ‘Nature’s Essence Lacto Bleach/ Lacto Tan Clear‘ gives far better result. I liked the post bleach pack which has a thick consistency. It dried quickly and gave me a fresh oil free look within very short time although the effect didn’t stay for long.


Pros of VLCC Insta Glow Saffron & Honey Bleach:

  • Reasonably priced.
  • It is a mild bleach improving complexion to some extent.
  • Bleaches facial hair.
  • Contains pre and post bleach packs.
  • Amount is good for multiple usages.
  • Has not caused any allergic reactions.

Cons of VLCC Insta Glow Saffron & Honey Bleach:

  • Short term glow, doesn’t stay for long.
  • Not sure about cleaning and proving nourishment etc claims (Could not see any such effect).
  • Doesn’t work on reducing pigmentation, dark spots etc.

IMBB rating:
3 star out of 5 (for its price, mildness and pre/post bleach cream etc)

Will I buy it Again?
No! When I use bleach I expect a little better result for the harms I am doing on my skin 😉
