VLCC for skin


Winter is now gone and summer has already in its full glory. It is the time when you should take extra care of your skin and body. You all know how particular I am with my skincare routine. It has grown for the best with each passing day. From carefully choosing the right product and researching every ingredient that goes into the skin, I am extremely serious about it. The problem I face the most in this transitional time is dry and lifeless along with some tanning on my forehead. Coffee is one of my favourite ingredients that work wonders for these problems. It might not be the greatest of beverages but it certainly does take care of many of the skin concerns that we usually have like tanning, dryness, and skin-ageing. Recently, I have included VLCC Coffee Sugar De-tan Exfoliating Scrub & Rejuvenating Arabica Coffee Peel-off Mask to my pamper skincare routine and they have so far been great for me.

I have been a fan of VLCC since I started using them when I was a teenager. I love how they choose their ingredients responsibly and delivers only natural, paraben-free products that are effective too.  The two products mentioned earlier have already become my favourites because of their efficacy and the ingredients that are natural and formulated for all skin types. Here is my detailed review of both.

VLCC Coffee Sugar De-tan Exfoliating Scrub

VLCC Coffee Sugar De-tan Exfoliating Scrub texture review

Coffee and sugar are two of my favourite ingredients for my scrubs. They are natural, effective and surprisingly gentle on the skin. Apart from being a great beverage, coffee is also known for its beauty benefits. The caffeine in coffee helps stimulate blood circulation which reduces puffiness or inflammation. It also works great to remove tanning, tighten and brighten the skin, improve skin texture, reducing wrinkles and signs of ageing.

Formulated with Arabica Coffee, Sugar Crystals & Himalayan Pink Salt, this product starts showing the results from its first use. It gently removes the dead cells from the surface and reveals the brighter looking skin lying underneath it instantly. It makes the skin smoother, brighter and softer. I easily get tanned on my forehead and my nose and the tan is the kind of patchy tan that we all hate. This scrub helps clear that out and evens out the complexion. If I have to rate it, I will give is a 9/10.

Price- ₹399 for 90g

Packaging- VLCC Coffee Sugar De-tan Exfoliating Scrub comes in a white plastic tube with a flip open cap. The packaging is extremely sturdy and convenient to travel with.

Ingredients: Glycerine, Sugar Crystal, Coffea Arabica powder, Himalayan Pink Salt, Silica, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Propylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Perfume, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sodium Benzoate, Triethylene Glycol

Texture, consistency & Smell- This scrub has a dark brown gel-like texture that is quite runny.  It feels a little sticky but is not at all difficult to work on to the skin. The product contains fine sugar crystals and coffee particles. It has got a mood-lifting aroma of freshly ground premium coffee.

How to Use- Take a sufficient quantity of scrub and apply on cleansed face. Scrub gently in a circular motion. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry.

VLCC Rejuvenating Arabica Coffee Peel-off Mask

VLCC Rejuvenating Arabica Coffee Peel-off Mask review VLCC Rejuvenating Arabica Coffee Peel off mask texture review

I don’t know how many of you would agree with me that peel-off masks are so damn satisfying. Imagine you have an event planned after the office or after a busy day in the kitchen. What would you need to glam yourself up in the shortest period of time? Of course, a peel-off mask! They are quick, they are efficient and most importantly very very relaxing and satisfying. Among the array of various peel-off masks available in the market, you’ll hardly find anything with such potent and premium ingredients as the Rejuvenating Arabica Coffee Peel-off Mask by VLCC. I love using this during my pamper days or weekends or if for the shortest glam-up regime to attending a special event. It turns any day into a spa day and I love that.

This mask spreads evenly on to the skin and turns into a peel-off mask from a gel-like formula within 15-20 minutes. It is also very easy and very neat to remove. It peels away the dirt and impurities from the pores and evens out the skin tone while rejuvenating it. The difference it makes is quite noticeable. It instantly brightens up the skin tone by clearing away all the dead cells and tanning off of the surface of your skin.

Price- ₹399 for 90g

Packaging- Same as the De-tan Exfoliating Scrub

Ingredients- Aqua, Isopropyl Alcohol, Polyvinyl Alcohol, Glycerine, Coffea Arabica Powder, Phenoxyethanol, Polyvinylpyrrolidone, Lactic Acid, Caffeine, Perfume, Triethanolamine, Disodium EDTA, Aloe Vera Extract, Triethylene Glycol

Texture, consistency & Smell- The peel-off mask is a light-brown, gel-like texture that spreads evenly onto the skin. Similar to the Coffee Sugar De-tan Exfoliating Scrub, this also smells exactly like coffee and that itself is very therapeutic.

How to Use- Wash face properly and pat dry with a soft towel. Apply Peel off mask evenly over your face avoiding eyebrows, eyes & lips (do not apply a very thin layer). Let it dry for 20-25 minutes. Peel Off from the forehead in a downward direction towards the chin & wash off. For best results, use at least once a week.

You are advised to do a patch test before using any of these.

Winter is right around the corner. This season comes with its own pros and cons. Where on one hand, it relieves us from the scorching sun and the unbearable humidity, on the other hand, it causes dryness and dullness of the skin. In today’s post, I am going to share some of my tips to fight dullness and rejuvenate your skin during this season.


Keeping yourself hydrated is really important for your skin as it helps in removing toxins from your body. You can achieve a glowing skin just by hydrating your body. Drink lots of water no matter what the season is.


Your diet plays a huge role in your skincare. Some foods are meant to detoxify your body and rejuvenate your core system so that your skin looks glowing from within. Here are some steps that I have incorporated into my diet to achieve a younger-looking, healthy and glowing skin.

  • Have salads before my meals. Firstly, it will prevent you from overeating and secondly, the detoxifying properties of raw veggies will help refresh your system.
  • Start my day with lemon water. Lemon has amazing detox properties. It is rich in Vitamin C which improves your skin and hair.
  • Have sprouted moong daal as a snack in the evening. Evenings are the times I am most inclined to junk foods. To prevent that, my mom has come up with this lovely idea to have a sprouts chaat to deal with my pesky hunger pangs. Just take some sprouted moong beans, chunks of tomatoes, chopped coriander and green chillies, add a dash of lemon juice, salt and pepper and you are good to go!

One thing about skincare that we always tend to forget is that it changes with the season. You should always make these seasonal changes to give your skin what it really needs for that particular season. As far as I have noticed, mine has become a little sensitive as winter is approaching and I am getting seasonal pimples more than what I normally do. To fight that, I have recently used the VLCC Ayurveda Purifying Double Power Double Neem Facial Kit (Rs 200/-).

This facial kit is made to give you an instant glow. This facial kit contains total 5 products- a face wash (10g), a face scrub (10g), a face gel (10g), a face cream (10g) and a face pack (10g). Enriched in the power of neem, VLCC Ayurveda Purifying Double Power Double Neem Facial Kit is a 5 step facial kit that deeply cleanses your skin, removes impurities, making it feel fresh and free from acne.

Hi, guys! If you follow me on my social media then you must know that I attended a #VLCCStyleStatements session a few days ago. VLCC  is India’s leading wellness brand that is the one-stop destination for all your skin and hair concerns. They have various beauty services and personal care services. Also known for their weight loss services, VLCC has several therapies and treatments for beauty and wellness using natural sciences. In this post, I am going to talk about the VLCC skin treatments.

At the event, we had Mr Rohit Murgai, Head- Beauty Sales, VLCC Healthcare who discussed with us various beauty treatments that VLCC has to offer. We got to know about various usual services like Vampire Facelift, Medavita Treatment, Kerafusion Treatment, Microblading and two new treatments that have been introduced in VLCC, Kolkata i.e. Ionic Detox and Cryofreeze Therapy. I’ll elaborately talk about each of them later. Also, read till the end to see if your questions have been answered!

Different VLCC Skin Treatments


Most of us must have heard about Microblading, but despite that, we are not much familiar with the term. Mainly because the treatment is not easily accessible and not many places in India have this facility at this moment. We were being informed about this process by Mr Murgai when we got to know the difference between Microblading and Eyebrow Tattoos. Microblading can be called semi-permanent makeup. In this process, pigments are inserted into the epidermis, whereas in tattoos, pigments are inserted deep into the skin. We were lucky enough to have witnessed a Microblading session up close during our event. The expert had a pen-like tool with which she was actually drawing some hair-like strokes on the client’s eyebrows. This process takes almost up to two hours to complete depending on the thickness followed by a touch-up within a couple of weeks. We were told that these pigments last for 15-20 months. VLCC is a trustworthy place to stop by for microblading in India, mainly because they have the best experts.

Ionic Detox

Mr Rohit Murgai told us about the two new treatments that have recently been introduced to VLCC, Kolkata. One of them is Ionic Detox. In this therapy, the client goes through a pedicure which sucks out all the toxins from different organs of the client’s body. The description sounded was quite interesting. We were told that the colour of the water in the pedicure tub changes from transparent to black, green or muddy brown depending on the organs that release toxins.

Cryofreeze Therapy

Another thing that is new to VLCC, Kolkata is this Cryofreeze Therapy. This is mainly an anti-ageing therapy that gives you an instantaneous glow. This is a 20-minute session in which your body temperature is taken down to sub-zero level to constrict your blood vessels. Now, when the temperature is black to normal, the blood gushes back to the entire body giving it an instant tightness, glow and it also instantly reduces the appearance of your fine lines. This therapy is another intriguing one.

Now, we were requested to ask our questions to Mr Murgai and he answered all of them with a smile. I am going to list down Mr Murgai’s answers to the question that you had asked me on Instagram and Facebook. Most of the cures included cosmetological help.

1. Remedy for Hair loss

Firstly, Mr Murgai made it clear that hair loss is curable at any age. There are different therapies that you can try out like Medavita or Mesotherapy in which certain proteins and vitamins are infused into your scalp. Else, you can go for hair transplant, hair patches and toupees or Polydioxanone Threads which is an advanced solution of Androgenetic Alopecia in which hair strands are thread embedded into your scalp.

2. Remedy for Frizz

The more humidity, the more frizz. At VLCC, they have a treatment called Kerafusion that is a keratin therapy for hair. In this process, your hair is given a coating of Kerafusion which makes it more manageable. Another thing is called Velour that is an advanced, in-depth Medavita treatment that is a re-energizing frizz-reduction treatment.

3. Remedy for Open Pores

You need to go through a daily CTM (Cleansing-Toning-Moisturizing) routine. Exfoliate your skin on a regular basis. Use a scrub that has walnut, avoid those that have small beads. There is a tool called derma roller that helps to reduce the appearance of open pores. You can also take help of collagen-based products that helps fill in the pores from within. One of the VLCC skin treatments include Vampire Facelift which is great for treating open pores, as well as dark elbows and knees.

4. Remedy for Dark Circles

Dark Circle happens because of the lesser blood circulation under your eyes. You need to increase the microcirculation there by getting yourself a proper treatment. You can go for a vision energy treatment or you can try eye cell treatment which is best for deeper dark circles. The only thing to consider and remember is that dark circles never go away completely, a treatment can only lessen their appearances.

Dr Das speaking about facial aesthetics and how botox and fillers work on the skin

We were also introduced to botox and fillers by Dr Das who is a very skilled dermatologist. Those are very common ways of improving one’s facial aesthetics and slow down ageing. Also, one very important thing that I have learnt there is that everyone person is born with a different skin type. So, we all need a skincare that is tailor-made keeping that particular skin type and skin conditions in mind. If two people have oily skin that doesn’t mean that the oil-free products that suit one will also suit the other. We need to get our skin tested to find the best products according to what our skin needs.
