VLCC Skin Defense Sandal Cleansing Milk & Rose water Toner Review
VLCC is a name that can be associated with Beauty, Slimming and Fitness. Its a well known brand in in Weight Management, Beauty Treatments, natural products and Spa care.
VLCC group has the VLCC personal Care Ltd. brand under their umbrella. The VLCC Personal Care Line consists of over 100 skin-care, hair-care and body-care products that are herbal / ayurvedic in nature and have been formulated to suit all skin and hair types. The products are made from special blends of botanical extracts, nutrients and aromatic oils, which are unique and highly effective product formulae as stated in their website.
Now the products that I am going to review come under the skin defense range of VLCC’s personal care brand. Before starting with my review, I just want to mention that I had never been following the CTM routine rigorously and so never thought of buying any cleanser/ toner for me. I even used to do my facials at home myself using Gold/Silver facial kits priced around 800 each. As cleanser & scrubs are part of their 5 unit pack so I used to apply them once a month.
But as now I am a mother of a 2 month old(my sweetheart, my son- Saatvik), I never find an hour to do my facials coz whatever time I get when he’s sleeping or playing with his dad, I have to see to the kitchen or other home tasks.
Thus I thought of getting myself a good Cleanser, Toner so that I can look after my dry skin (in minutes) which was getting worse day by day. Having a hard time looking out for Aroma Magic, Amway, Oriflame, Lotus new range, I ended up buying VLCC Cleansing Milk and Rose Water and I am super happy to lay my hands on these lovely skin care products.
VLCC Skin Defense Sandal Cleansing Milk (105/- for 100ml)
Product claim—This refreshing, non-foaming cleansing milk is enriched with the goodness of Sandalwood, Almond & Indian Burberry extracts. It deep cleanses, nourishes and heals the skin.
Ingredients-Sandalwood extract & Almond Oil
Skin- For normal to dry skin
Usage– Take appropriate amount on cotton & massage gently in circular motion over face & neck. Use in evenings esp. for removing make up.
What I feel about this Cleanser:- It is one of the best cleansers I have used so far. Its very light on the skin and doesn’t feel greasy or sticky at all. I love the sandalwood smell of it. And its really very effective in removing dryness from the skin. The first time I used it on my face, it stung for 2 minutes or so, not because its harsh but because of the affected dry areas of my cheeks & around my mouth. I could see the redness in those areas(and I thought my skin was perfect 🙁 ). After that day I applied it morning/evening and within 3 days(exactly after 5 applications), I got back my normal skin, the affected dried areas all gone. 😀
Pros of VLCC Sandal Cleansing Milk:
- Best Cleanser- All dryness vanishes within 3-4 applications.
- Not at all greasy.
- Its Sandalwood aroma is breathtaking.
- Suitable for all pockets.
- Small amount needed for one time applying as it spreads easily either using one’s fingers or cotton ball.
- Due to its sturdy packaging its easy to carry around during travelling.
- Consistency is neither too thick nor too thin so gets absorbed quickly into your skin.
- Its a very good makeup remover too. You can see that in the pic attached below:
I have taken my favourite lipsticks starting from Marks & Spencers,Loreal,Maybelline,Diana of London and Lakme, then comes my eyeliners from Bourjois and Avon,my Loreal Lip liner, Eyeshadows from Karen Walker and a pink powder blush.
After just 2 swipes of the cleansing milk, the powder & blush gone and within 5-6 swipes were all the lipsticks and my eyeliners were wiped out. Only my Avon glimmersticks & Mark & Spencer’s lipstick took 10-12 swipes to fade away completely.
The amount of cleansing milk I took and the used cotton ball & below my clean hand again 😛
Cons of Sandal Cleansing Milk
- Cannot remove waterproof makeup.
- Packaging could have been better. I would have preferred pump styled bottle.
Rest its a boon for people with dry skin like me. I have seen ladies swearing for VLCC’s skin care products, their facial and pedicure/manicure kits. Now I am also swearing by this Cleanser. 🙂 :P.
Will I repurchase it: Definitely but my next bottle would come after 6 months as I want to try their Wild turmeric Face wash reviewed by Neha.Thats just because my skin tends to get a little oily during the harsh summer heat of Hyd.
VLCC Skin Defense Rose Water Toner (85/- for 100ml)
Product Claim–This skin toner acts as a cooling and refreshing agent. It tones, nourishes and balances the skin.
Ingredients- Rose Petals Distillate, Date Extract, Aloe Vera Ext.
Skin type- All skin types.
Usage- Twice a day. Moisten a piece of cotton with this toner and apply over clean face & neck. Can be added to your face packs too.
My say /Pros of VLCC Rose Water Toner:
This clear liquid delivers what it claims. The skin really feels moistened and refreshed after using this toner. It has a calming effect on the skin. I use this after cleansing my face with the Sandal Cleansing milk and the skins feels supple and cool. ☺ I LOVE its aroma, it still lingers on for some time after using it. 😛
Cons of VLCC Rose Water Toner
- Again the packaging. I prefer a spray kind of bottle.
Will I Repurchase it: YES.
My Rating for both of them is :-* :-* :-* :-* (-1 only for the packaging).
I am going to buy the VLCC Honey Moisturiser next so that I am using all VLCC products for my CTM routine as these cleanser & toner have not only been effective on my dry skin but also have improved my skin tone and have given a glow to my skin even.
I still won’t call it my HG which have always been the CTM from Amway. As I am not able to get an Amway representative in Hyd so my search ended getting these VLCC products. But I am very much satisfied with their skin care range & in this price & quantity and the results I got, its a brand worth giving a try.
Hope my review help other ladies reading it too. Enjoy your Day 🙂
