Fun Facial with VLCC Silver Facial Kit

I rarely get facials done at salons, must have got it done 2-3 times in my life. Yes, I swear. My skin is sensitive and hence I'm skeptical of making it go through anything and everything. Even the normal monthly threading regime makes my skin red for a day or two. And then VLCC send me this awesome facials kit, with which I'm all set for the festive season right from Ganesh Chaturthi to Valentine's Day (I wouldn't want to use a facial more than once a month).


It was really confusing to pick which one to try first, they all look so amazing with their different benefits. I finally decided to go with the Silver Facial Kit that purifies & detoxifies for Healthy Skin. This one is priced at Rs.250/- In fact all of them in the kit except for the diamond facial (Rs.350) are at the same price. 


The facial kit is a completely professional one with 6 well packaged products to be followed as per the step by step instructions - Cleanser & Toner (Pre Facial), Scrub, Cream, Gel, Pack and Moisturising Gel. These sachets cannot be opened by hands, wish they had a tear here thing. So remember to keep a pair of scissors handy or you'll be searching for one last minute.


The main steps are mentioned on the back of the box, and the detailed instructions are mentioned on each individual sachet. Have an hour and a half in hand for the facial to be done properly, because the steps need as much time as you would give in a salon. Only difference, you're doing it yourself and it costs less than one fourth of the money! Yahoo!


I did not make it a point to read through every step in detail in advance, and hence wasn't prepared with a few things you'll require. Make note of them in advance - 

Cotton Balls / Swabs, Face steam machine (If you don't have that at home you can take it from boiled water in a utensil or a hot towel), Blackhead removing tool (I didn't have that), Cold compression ice pack or ice cubes. Also if you want to use the facial till your neck and shoulders, wear a tee that you don't mind getting spoilt.

Steps:

Directions of use Comfrey Cleanser cum Toner (Step 1):

Apply Comfrey cleanser cum toner on the face and neck, massage in the circular motion for 2-3 minutes and wipe off with moist cotton. This tingled & burned slightly for me, but nothing after that.
Directions of Use Silver Glow Scrub (Step 2):
Take VLCC Silver Glow Scrub and apply evenly on clean, wet face. Massage gently with circular movements for 5-7 minutes. Let it dry and wipe off with moist cotton. The scrub isn't harsh, but remember to scrub very gently and not putting too much pressure.

Give steam or hot towel therapy and remove blackheads if required. Then give cold compression with gauze or cotton strips soaked in cold water.  I did not have the tool parlours use to remove blackheads, hence I skipped that.
Directions of Use Silver Glow Gel (Step 3):
Apply VLCC Silver Glow Gel all over face and neck. Gently massage the gel in upward and outward strokes till it gets absorbed. This had an amazing fragrance and glittering silver particles in it which are mesmerising to look at!
Directions of Use Silver Glow Cream (Step 4):
Apply VLCC Silver Glow Cream all over the face and neck, massage for 15-20 minutes in upward and outward strokes. Wipe off with a moist cotton. Okay, I didn't massage for 15-20 minutes, my hands were already aching, I gave up.
Directions of Use Silver Glow Pack (Step 5):
Apply VLCC Silver Glow Pack over the face and neck area with the fingertips. Avoid the eye area and let it dry. Dampen mask and then wipe off with moist cotton.
Directions of Use Oil free Moisturiser (Step 6):

Apply evenly over face & neck, post facial The face had become dry after the facial, but this moisturiser took care of that.


What I loved:

The quantity of every sachet is generous. In-fact I think two people could do a facial using each kit. Maybe that's because I didn't apply it till my shoulders and just partial neck.

All the products smell great and it was really soothing throughout the process.

Most of the ingredients are herbal/safe like winter-cherry, silver powder, bergamot extract, liquorice extract, etc making it completely trustable. It's been 72 hours since the facial now and I have no rashes or reactions or redness, just clean glowing skin.

I had a random acne breakout the day I applied the facial, and for some reason it got better after the facial and next day it got lighter. Now the spot is almost gone!

Priced at Rs.250 onwards, these facial kits are worth every rupee! Even makes a great gift to give to your BFF / Sister / Mother etc.

What I didn't:

I wish the steps didn't need massaging for 10, 15 and 20 minutes, it get's really tiring. Maybe VLCC can come up with a face massager so that the same can be done without tiring the hands? Then it would become a totally relaxing experience.

Loved reading this? I shall write about another one I use soon too. Or maybe I'll blog about a family member's experience using the products! If you loved reading this blog do comment away, maybe I'll send one of the facial kits to you?! :)
