VLCC Snigdha Skin Whitening Day Cream with SPF 25 Review!

Hello everyone,
I hope you all are doing great. I am here with another product review from VLCC whose products I have been featuring on my blog since the last few months.You can read all those reviews HERE.Today I shall be reviewing the VLCC Snigdha Skin Whitening Day Cream with SPF 25 in my blog post which I have been testing for quite sometime. Read on to know more...



Price: Rs.405/- for 50g. Available online at a discount HERE




Ingredients
 Aqua, Cetostearyl alcohol, Glycerine, Steareth-21, Carbomer, Avobenzone, Isopropyl myristate, Dimethicone, Octocrylene, Steareth-2, Titanium dioxide, Isohexa decane, Dimethicone Copolyol, Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Lepidium sativum (Garden Cress) extract, Morus bombycis (Mulberry) extract, Glycyrrhiza glabra (Liquorice) extract, Butyl hydroxytoluene, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Methylisothiazolinone, Disodium EDTA, Perfume.


Product Description by the brand:
Liquorice, the root extract is infused with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties which help in maintaining a flawless skin. It contains an active compound “glabridin” that prevents skin darkening caused by sun damage. Moreover it fades away pigmentation and sun damage and leaves you a skin that is brighter, clearer and hydrated. Mulberry, the super food regulates the process of melanin synthesis, which helps in formation of a protective pigment found in inner layers of epidermis, further absorbing the UV rays and inhibiting their penetration. It reduces the dark spots and scars, and helps achieve a clear and radiant glow. Both of these active ingredients are blended together in VLCC Skin Whitening Day Cream to treat dull, dark and lifeless skin, caused due to melanin accumulation and sun exposure. Wear it during the day to prevent re-occurrence of dark spots and pigmentation and to keep glowing.
Benefits:
– Evens skin tone
– Lightens dark spots
– Suitable for all skin types



Packaging:
The cream comes enclosed in a pink and white cardboard box which contains the plastic tub which contains the cream. The tub is white and pink in color again and the lid is dome shaped which has a screw cap type of packaging.Since it is opaque it is hard to make out the amount remaining in the container. It is travel friendly in my opinion.



Skin lightening is a very debateable topic in India and I always say that creams are only to make it lighter and brighter and not fair. One should be comfortable with  their own skin color.



Let me begin my telling you that I have oily to combination skin and very few creams work for my skin type. This cream is white in color and light in consistency.It smells nice and pleasent too. The cream contains licorice and mulberry which are good for skin lightening. The cream gets absorbed well into my skin and makes it feelnourished and bright but I started sweating post application which I hate and had to rub it off with a tissue everytime which eventually would end up wiping up the cream.Hence I would say it is best to be used by my skin type in colder months like winters as my skin tends to get dry then. Hence this cream would be best suited for normal to dry skin women. With SPF 25 in the cream it makes it an ideal day cream for sure.

The Good:
Available through any VLCC outlet or online.
Made of natural ingredients
Contains SPF 25 for sun protection
Ideal for normal to dry skin women
Reduces/lightens dark spots over repeated use
Prevents skin darkening
Travel friendly packaging

The not so Good:
Makes skin greasy post application
Not ideal for oily skin
A bit pricey than other creams.
Contains parabens

Rating: 3.8/5

VLCC Snigdha Skin Whitening Day Cream with SPF 25 will work for you if have normal to dry skin. It lightens and brightens the skin on repeated use. It is worth trying if it suits your skin type.

  2. Whitening is very subjective I must admit. Well, suppose it can be clear and bright skin without blemishes, I am afraid this cream will be rather strong for my skin. I tend to break up when a product is oily.
