Summer Skincare with VLCC

Happiness is...when VLCC shower's a lot of love on you! That's what I felt when I received this hamper of products! I almost wished I was ten-headed like Raavan so that I could use all the products at one go. :D

On the serious side, though I did not try all products (Some were not meant for my skin type i.e. combination skin) and were for people with dry skin, I did try a few and here is my take on them -

1. De-pigmentation range - Day Cream & Night Cream (Also available - Mask & Serum)

I have pigmentation issues, specially on the face and upper back. And after my recent trip to Goa for a week, even after applying sunscreen, I came back tanned and pigmented. Hence, the VLCC De-pigmentation day cream with SPF and night cream to my rescue!

About the products - 

De-Pigmentation Day Cream With SPF 25
– Treats pigmented skin & spots to even out skin tone
– Suitable for all skin types

Mulberries are rich in antioxidants such as beta-carotene, that are renowned for their impressive ability to neutralise free radicals that cause damage to skin, such as fine lines and wrinkles. Turmeric is loaded with anti-oxidants and has anti-inflammatory, anti-septic and anti-bacterial properties that purifies and heals skin, leaving it feeling refreshed and oil free.
These two expert natural extracts combine to bring us the VLCC De-Pigmentation Day Cream which works effectively on pigmented skin. 
Turmeric is a centuries old remedy used by our ancestors for various troubles, not only for the skin but even overall health. The cream smells great, is light and blends in easily. It also provides SPF 25 protection from sun so that you don't have to apply sunscreen separately.
De-Pigmentation Night Cream

Sandalwood soothes irritated skin by creating a soothing cooling sensation, making it especially effective for treating skin conditions. Sandalwood oil helps fade scars & spots, while Aloe Vera extract nourishes the skin and improves its appearance and texture. These two natural ingredients come together to create VLCC De-Pigmentation Night Cream, a specially designed product for effective night-time skincare as it rejuvenates the skin after day long harsh environmental exposures. The deeply penetrating delivery molecules work throughout the night to lighten skin, dark spots and pigmentation.

Benefits: – Lightens the skin– Fades dark spots and pigmentation– Suitable for all skin types

Sandalwood & Aloe Vera are again very old and popular ingredients of skincare. I haven't been much of a night cream user, but since I am using the day cream, I make it a point to follow the regime so that I get maximum results. It's just been a couple of weeks, but I can see my dark spots fading and I am sure within a couple of months my skin will be so much better!

2. Sun Care Range - Matte look sunscreen with SPF 30 & Tinted Sunscreen Souffle with SPF 25 (A lot of other variations are available).

Thanks to Global Warming, we do not really have any Spring in March, but it get's skipped and we directly face the wrath of Summer. The scorched sun and it's harmful rays, and the humid Mumbai weather, you know the drill. The sunscreen came right in time, as my previous one was about to get over. 

Ever since I learnt in one of the bloggers meet, that for skin that looks young, and for your skin not to age fast, sunscreen is a must, to be used regularly weather winter or summer or monsoons. I try my best to stick to that now. Which SPF to use can be tricky, but unless you stay at a beach or are always out in the sun (which is when you would require a SPF 40 or 50), for regular use an SPF 25 to SPF 30 should be more than enough.

About the products - 

Matte Look Sun Screen Lotion SPF 30 | PA+++

Product Description -
Pineapples are full of important antioxidants that work to prevent cell damage by fighting against free radicals. This enzyme-rich fruit helps to keep the skin flexible and firm because it increases collagen synthesis. It contains vitamin C and amino acids and these are all skin-friendly nutrients. VLCC Matte Look Sun Screen Lotion with SPF 30 and PA+++ is made with a combination of Pineapple extract along with many other natural ingredients, which not only protects skin from harmful UVA & UVB sun rays, but also hydrates the skin leaving it soft and supple. In addition, its non-sticky formula gets absorbed quickly into the skin giving it an even finish. So go ahead, enjoy the Sun!

I love pineapples and the description almost makes me hungry! I have always used a matte sunscreen, because my skin is generally oily, and even more during the humid Mumbai heat, so matte sunscreens help me control the oily look. The VLCC matte sunscreen smells so fresh and yummy! Do not forget to apply it at-least 20 mins before heading outside guys!

Enbrighten Tinted Sun Screen Souffle SPF 25 | PA+++

Product Description
Grapes are considered to be one of the best remedies for overall skincare. They are loaded with phytochemicals and phytonutrients which possess antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. The application of grapes seed extract on the skin provides protection against harmful ultraviolet radiation. It acts as a sunscreen by reducing the redness caused due to sunburn, and also minimizes the damage borne by the skin cells. Enbrighten Tinted Sun Screen Souffle with SPF 25 and PA+++, is a light weight, water based tinted formula that covers skin evenly &  protects  against sun damage.
Enriched with the goodness of Red Grape Extracts, it nourishes skin leaving it soft & brighter.
Now this is the product I was really interested in, because it is a souffle and it is tinted and it is water-based. Being tinted means it covers the skin and makes it appear even and takes care of the bronzed look we want when we head out!

What I absolutely love about VLCC's range of products is the wide variety catering to every skin type and skin issue plus the use of natural ingredients along with latest technology to bring us the best products at most reasonable prices!
