My Experience With VLCC Natural Sciences Gold Polishing Face Scrub:
VLCC has never been into flashy or catchy packaging, but their packing is simple, decent and sturdy. This gold scrub comes in a soft tube with a translucent plastic cap. The pack is easy to travel with no hassle and there has been no spillage or leakage. The tube packaging is hygienic as well for a skincare product. Overall, I am really impressed with the packaging as it is simple, easy and hygienic.
The scrub has a gel like consistency which is slightly semi-runny loaded with shimmery gold particles and little pieces of gold colored granules. It has a faint refreshing aroma of lemon grass, but it is very mild and hardly long-lasting. The scrub is somewhat between harsh and mild and the granules have just the right abrasive action. When I first applied it on my wet face, it lathered very slightly and had the feeling of a face wash cum scrub. Washing the layer takes a lot of splashes as it leaves behind a slight slippery feeling onto the skin which vanishes after rinsing it thoroughly. The scrub removes all the dead cells and dirt and gives a redefined natural softness and smoothness to the skin post usage. With longer usage, you would notice that there is a slight improvement in the white heads but it takes religious usage of the product. The brand claims to give a radiant complexion, but I didn't experience any such thing. It is only after a complete CTM method that you would notice a glow to the skin, but I believe the product has a very little contribution to that. I was happy that it didn't break me out and adjusted with my skin type. I have to say that the pores look a bit better after using this scrub and skin looks nourished as well.
The skin post usage feels a bit dry which can be a boon for oily skin, but the dry skin won't be benefited much from this scrub. It is much of a coarse scrub and dries out the skin post usage. The effect of the scrub stays for around 2-3 days depending on the tiredness your skin goes through and after that the skin goes back to being normal. The price is reasonable as far the product is concerned and with regular usage, the scrub would last me around 2 months as a little dollop of the product works fine for me. Overall, it is a fine daily scrub for normal to oily skin.
