Hello gorgeous ladies,
Facial kits are one of my necessities as at times I feel really lazy to go out and get a facial done. So whenever I get bored or feel that my skin looks tired and dull, I use these kits. I use it on my mom and mom gives me a facial which is very soothing and relaxing. This facial kit claims to give an instant glow. So we tried it on my mom before going to a function. Let’s see how this one worked for her and later on I tried it on myself too.
Price: Rs 175 ( I got a buy one get one free offer along with a face wash free.. but I don’t like that face wash as such)
Description: VLCC party glow facial provides instant glow to your skin leaving it fairer, radiant and nourished.
1. Indian berberry face scrub
2. Saffron massage gel
3. Snigdha face cream
4. Insta glow face pack
Our experience with VLCC Party Glow Facial Kit:
I have always quite liked the VLCC facial kits. My mom had to go to a function a few days ago and her skin looked pretty tired, so I thought of giving her a facial since I was done with my exams. The quantity of each and every content atleast for this price is super good. The packaging is great too and the colour looks so eco-friendly and bright, looking at the outer packaging only I get refreshed. But the only problem with this is that the entire content sachet does not get used up in one go; either it has to be kept cut inside the box which may create a mess or has to be stapled. Now I will move on to the detailed review of each content separately.
(Note: All of the above mentioned contents were used along with chilled ice water to ensure a smooth massage because if they are used alone, they become really harsh and drying on the skin)
Step 1: Indian berberry face scrub
Indian Berberry face scrub that helps in exfoliation and rejuvenation of the skin and leaves it clean and refresh, porcelains and retexturises, cleans and refreshes the skin. Date extract and papaya deep cleanses and moisturises the skin.
Directions: Apply evenly on wet face and neck. Leave it on for 2-3 minutes. Then massage gently in circular motions for 3-4 minutes and then rinse it off.
The indian berberry scrub comes in a whitish grey coloured paste along with small granules in it. My mom loves harsh granules but this was somewhere meant for all the skin types. The granules were fine, not that tiny that no feeling of exfoliation arrives and not that harsh too. And mom was feeling like all the granules were just peeling out the excess dirt and oiliness from here skin and also the dull skin caused due to everyday pollution. I massaged it on her for like 8 minutes and the fragrance lingered all the time. It was really refreshing and was great to give a good kick start to the facial. After cleansing it up her skin looked glowy and bright for time being as the dull dehydrated skin had gone away.
Step 2: Saffron massage gel
Saffron massage gel, ultra light massage gel that combines the virtues of Mulberry and Saffron lightens and brightens the skin while improving its texture.
Directions: Apply on clean skin and massage gently in upward and circular strokes with wet finger tips for 8-10 minutes.
The saffron massage gel was the best part of this entire kit. It comes in a gel form which is orangish pink in colour and seems pretty transparent on face. And oh my god the fragrance is just amazing; it actually smells like saffron and a floral blend. It gives a very soothing feeling to the skin and one might get relaxed even if only this step is used. My mom instantly felt a cooling feeling and she was half asleep but then my naughty brother came and woke her up. This gets the skin to the softest level and the skin feels baby soft but this has to be used with wet fingertips as if used without it; it will get absorbed in a minute and hence no opportunity to massage. Then after 10 minutes of massage I cleansed the gel with a sponge and mom’s skin has transformed for a while totally.
Step 3: Snigdha face cream
Snigdha face cream, enriched with skin lightening co-agents like Mulberry and Lemon peel extract lightens skin pigmentation without dehydrating the skin and makes it look fairer and radiant.
Directions: Apply generously on clean skin and massage gently in circular and upward strokes for 10 minutes and rinse it off.
Next came the step to massage with a cream. The consistency of the cream is like a smooth milky paste and comes in a pure white colour. It spread on the face like dream. It will be suitable for people with dry skin especially during winters. This step gave a warm feeling on the face while massaging and I don’t think that any content should give a warm feeling after such a cooling sensation given by the gel. But my mom liked it on her face, so in some case worked out for her. This added a little glow but yes the skin looked bright and was ready for a steam. I massaged this for 10 minutes and then mom directly took a steam. But the only problem here was it smelled bad.
Step 4: Insta glow face pack
Insta glow face pack contains Lavender and Rosemary to brighten the complexion, giving it a characteristic luminosity, radiance and softness.
Directions: Apply a generous layer on the face and let it be for 20 minutes and wipe it off with cold water.
My mom took a steam and I cleaned all her pores, blackheads and whiteheads with the blackhead tool and the pores were totally cleaned up so then was the time for the face mask. The mask was white in colour and was easy to spread but it got dried up in like 7-8 minutes so then mom washed it off with cold water. The fragrance again was amazing like a flower so I am glad that atleasst the closing fragrance was good.
Overall verdict: This is a very good kit for facials at home at that price. The entire glow that my mom had on her face was really good and her skin looked perfect for a function but somewhere I felt that this kind of instant glow is the glow we get after doing any kind of facial; I mean this gave a glow but nothing that special or different from others, so I wouldn’t think of getting it again but wouldn’t even mind using it up rather I would get papaya fruit facial kit from VLCC because that is the best one that I liked from the entire VLCC range.
Will I recommend/ repurchase VLCC party glow facial kit?
No I won’t be repurchasing it and neither would recommend it, rather if you want to try then go for fruit facial kits from Joy and VLCC; they work really well and will totally give a relaxing feeling.
