This is the first product I have tried from the VLCC range of skincare (and they do seem to have quite a few products). I needed a scrub, and this one was tagged as suitable "for all skin types."
Refreshes, deep cleanses, and removes blackhead - pretty much regular scrub claims. What they mean by "porcelains" I am not quite sure :P
Key Ingredients: Papaya seed, Banana pulp, Margosa ext, Mango seed powder, Date ext, Fenugreek ext, Zinc oxide, Corn oil, Indian berberry ext, Cream base. I have a problem with companies that write "key ingredients" and a vague "cream base," but the product is not all evil, so I am willing to forgive..not really, but maybe ignore for now :D
Packaging/Product: The product comes in an easy-to-squeeze-out tube with a flip-open cap. Easy to use and no problem with product contamination. Travel friendly. The product itself is creamy greyish-white with black granules. It feels very soft, and the scrub granules are not very abrasive - I don't really do a very harsh scrubbing either. The scrub has a mild fruity smell - but not a sweet jelly fruity - more of a banana-fruity smell. Sometimes I feel like I get an ash/charcoal kind of a smell from it, though, when I am scrubbing my face..no idea why..and it's not there all the time, so maybe it's just me
My experience with the product: I found this to be a gentle but effective scrub - with just the right scrubbing granules in the cream base. However, I think this scrub is best meant for normal skins. It did not have any noticeable skin clearing effect, and the cream base left some oiliness on the face. I have oily-combination skin and the climate is very drying right now, so I can get away with using it, but I really don't think this is a good idea for an oily-skinned person. The recommendation of using a face pack after this is actually quite sensible - of course, that means I never really did do that - got too lazy - but I do think using a clay-based mask after this (oily/oily-combination skin) would help absorb the bit of cream residue left on the face.
