Let me confess that anything that claims “Skin lightening” always attracts me and everytime I end up buying that product. I got this one along with my VLCC insta fair and glow cold cream and I think this is a new launch from this brand. They have also launched night cream and day creams and these existed I guess but had limited availability. I got only this face mask because I had loads of days and night creams with me. Let’s see how it worked for me.
Price: Rs 150 for 80 g
What VLCC says: This mask visibly works on dark spots/marks on the skin, imparts glow to reveal brighter skin tone. With regular weekly usage, it reveals brighter, even skin tone. Wash and pat dry the face.
Directions for use: Take appropriate amount of pack on the finger tips and spread out uniformly all over the face and neck in thin layer. Leave it for 15 minutes. After drying wash the face with water and pat dry. Suitable for all skin types.
My take on VLCC Snigdha Skin Whitening Face Mask:
We all love skin whitening face masks, don’t we? I am a lover of such masks and keep on trying new stuff. This one claims to contain lemon as well which you all know is a natural bleaching agent for the skin. I like applying lemon juice but at times it irritates the skin badly and burns a lot so this might be a good alternative for lemon juice. It has aloe vera too which is a soothing agent and both to a very good extent help with complexion and marks. Coming to this one, it comes in a cute plastic tube which is white and pink in colour and very travel friendly and the shape almost resembles a face wash tube. I like such white packaged tubes and it has a white cap too which is a flip open one. They claim it is suitable for all skin type.
The texture of the mask is creamy and clay type although it does not contain clay. It comes in a pure white colour and I feel it looks attractive on the face, lol. The mask being a little thick in consistency will take a little time to apply evenly on the face however if you want an easy spread mixing it with rose water will help. I have really sensitive skin so it stings a little while applying but it goes away after some time. I waited for 20 minutes and then washed off my face with cold water. The mask was really easy to remove. It made my skin very soft, but it felt a little dry too maybe because I think my skin has already gone into the winter stage but the dryness was not so much to be bothered about. My BB cream being a little tough to blend, blended easily and the moisturiser also got absorbed into the skin nicely. It did make my skin look bright and fair at the moment and using it continuously every week will only give results.
Do not expect magical results with just couple of applications. With continuous use it did gave me good results but I have been using different products as well along with this one so cannot accurately tell how well it satisfies its scar reduction claim but I for sure know that it has helped my skin as my skin looked really bright after using it just once.
Pros of VLCC Snigdha Skin Whitening Face Mask:
-Good price and good quantity
-A whole whitening range available
-Easy to use and good and convenient packaging
-The product has a mild fragrance which is lovely
-Easy to remove and no need to use a face wash after that
-Made my skin very soft and the moisturiser got absorbed nicely and smoothly
-Made my face look brighter after one use only and continuous use will help a little on the fairness and acne scars part
-Has ingredients like lemon and aloe vera
Cons of VLCC Snigdha Skin Whitening Face Mask:
-The mask is a bit thick so may take time to spread evenly
-A little drying post washing so a need of a moisturiser; but very little dryness was faced
Will I repurchase/recommend?
Ofcourse yes as it suited my skin very nicely and I have acne scars so I will use it continuously and get a new one when required. And I will tell everyone to try it out once as it will give you everything that a face mask has too and it is pretty affordable too.
