My skin type: I have combination skin (normal to oily ) oily on T-zone. My forehead, nose and apples of my cheeks have visible open pores. I get to see white heads and small zits formed from these whiteheads every other day. So basically i have combination, acne prone skin.
If I get to skip my cleaning routine even for a single day, I get pimples the next morning.

Why I buy this: Like many other products, the SA convinced me into buying this. I was just looking for a moisturizer. She said this is not anti ageing but for girls who wants to retain youthful skin. Though my mom was saying no, I still go ahead and bought it. Also because VLCC has big fan following.

My experience with VLCC Skin Tightening Night Cream:
I used it the same night I bought it and the next morning my skin felt very soft and supple. This is a bright yellow cream. It has very heavy hard buttery’s texture and needs rubbing while applying. The bottle looks funny, I mean I think it’s unattractive, but sturdy. The smell is like typical VLCC products strong on nose. I bought this February, that time the cream was in solid rich textured form. These days we have to keep to keep it in fridge as due to hot whether the cream was changing color to orange from yellow on top. Strange. Okay so back to my usage. Next night I applied it again. I had to rub it on my face to apply evenly. I was feeling the warmth on applying and after applying, my face was greasy like anything. In few minutes it was absorbed mostly.
So the next morning when I woke up, I was shocked. My face has redness on the T-zone area and many small zits appeared. I looked terrible. But later I put some aloe vera and it got better by the end of the day. So that night I skipped it. I thought the skin needs to get to use to new products so next night I applied it again. The morning next made me cry as my face looked swollen. It took 2-3 days to get better. That was it, I gave up on this and handed it over to mom. She has normal-dry skin, so she could safely try it. And she liked it really. She had no reaction on her skin. She found it as a good moisturizer but has nothing to say about skin tightening. So after using it for a month, she went back to Olay regenerist night revival cream.

These days she is using Wild ferns Manuka honey night cream on alternate days. And do not wish to go back to VLCC night cream. Now we sometimes use it on elbows and knees as it is very rich and oily.
