Today, I am going to review a newly launched face serum from VLCC. I had seen it in Big Bazaar earlier, but one week back, I purchased it from a local cosmetic store and got a discount too :happydance:
399 INR for 40 ml.
A serum developed with years of research which targets problem areas of dark spots, lightens pigmentation and acne marks on the skin. Effectively inhibits melanin formation, provides exceptional brightening benefits.
Directions For Use:
Wash your face and pat dry. Apply serum on your face and allow it to get absorbed in the skin. There is also some experts advise. Please follow the pictures.
Trehalose , Grapefruit extract , Symphytum Officinale extract ( comfrey) , Niacinamide (The complete list of ingredients is missing again!!!).
This serum comes in a pump bottle which is secured with a double cap. Packaging is sturdy and travel friendly, no issue with it.
My Take on VLCC Snigdha Skin Whitening Serum:
First of all, texture of this serum is smooth and runny in consistency and no artificial color is added, but I don’t like the smell. One pump is enough to cover the whole face and the serum spreads easily. I have oily skin and this serum does not increase the oiliness on my face. In fact, I am using this instead of my regular moisturizer. It is too hot and humid in Kolkata now, so moisturizer (though oil free) seems heavy on my skin and causes excessive sweating. Nowadays, after washing my face, I use a toner and then this serum. After some time, I apply Lotus Herbals 3 in 1 Matte Sunscreen 40.
I also use it after returning home and at bed time. Oshea herbals Glopure serum is my regular serum and I am happy with that. I just wanted to try a new one, so I picked this one up. I have no acne marks or dark spots on my face, so I can’t comment about that, but this serum adds a little glow to my face. I don’t believe in any whitening claim. It faded my tan to some extent (up to a little extent though).
This serum takes more time to get absorbed and till then my face feels sticky. I am quite happy with this serum as I did not have much expectations from it.
Pros of VLCC Snigdha Skin Whitening Serum:
- Claims to be 100% vegetarian.
- Adds a bit of a glow to the skin.
- Texture is smooth and spreads easily.
- Fades tan (just a bit).
- Not tested on animals.
Cons of VLCC Snigdha Skin Whitening Serum:
- Expensive considering the average effect it has on skin.
- Does not control oil.
- I didn’t notice any whitening effect.
- I don’t like the smell personally
- Complete list of ingredients is not mentioned.
Do I Recommend VLCC Snigdha Skin Whitening Serum?
Only if you love using serum or want to replace your moisturizer this summer, you may try out. Overall, not a bad product, provides nourishment and hydration to the skin.
