There are many myths related to the “Right Age” of starting your facial skin care routine. 9 out of 10 girls have this misconception that facials should be done in the late twenties when your skin starts losing the charm. But that’s not right my friends! Till 20 your skin is prone to get less damage as it repairs more than required, post 20 the repair-process slows down and the skin takes time in healing and so many skin-issues try to give you a tight hug 😛 . The more you care for your skin, the better it gets! A facial won’t harm you in any way; it’s helping you out for betterment of you skin only. Facial is nothing but a facial exercise, you need to understand it exactly as the benefits of yoga on our overall health. I am in my mid-twenties, and I don’t always visit Salon for my facials as they burn a hole in the pocket plus they involve planning and hence I end up wasting a lot of time. I mostly buy these facial kits and do my facial at home or involve myself in some DIYs. VLCC is a brand that offers single facial kits in several variants. Today, I am reviewing VLCC Diamond Facial Kit; keep reading to know how it fared 🙂 –Price- INR 350/-
About- Diamond – the precious gem has been traditionally known as a woman’s best friend. VLCC has taken this relation a step further and has designed a complete facial with Diamond Bhasma that fights premature aging of skin and offers an instant glow and polish to the skin. Diamond Bhasma or ash that is obtained through heating and pulverizing diamonds with herbs has cell renewing and rejuvenating properties. It also improves skin’s metabolism, helps in absorption of active ingredients, and hydrates and detoxifies skin. The Facial Kit Includes:
– Comfrey Cleanser cum Toner 10gm
– Diamond Scrub 5gm
– Diamond Detox Lotion 5gm
– Diamond Massage Gel 10gm
– Diamond Wash-off Mask 10gm
– Oil Free Moisturizing Gel 10gmMy Take on VLCC Diamond Facial Kit- It comes in a small box pack, all the information regarding ingredients, directions and manufacturing are written on the back and sides of the box. 5 small sachets and small tube are the contents of the single facial kit. You have to tear the sachets, cut-open the tube and use them step-by-step as given on the box for best results. VLCC Diamond scrub comes packed with the goodness of diamond bhasma and jojoba oil to polish, purify and rejuvenate your skin.
Before you start your facial give your face and neck a quick wash and follow it up with The First step i.e. VLCC Comfrey Cleanser cum Toner which comes packed with the goodness of aloe vera. You need to massage it in small circular strokes for 2 minutes and wipe off with moist cotton when done. This cleanser cum toner smells wonderful and after using this, your skin gets ready for further pampering. 🙂 . The Second step is to apply the Diamond Scrub, exfoliation is extremely important to keep your skin away from impurities. It bids goodbye to embedded impurities and detoxifies skin. You need to scrub for at least 5 minutes. The Third step is about applying Diamond Detox Lotion which is a white colored light-weight lotion, you need to massage it for few minutes and let your skin absorb it before proceeding to the next step. The Fourth step is to apply Diamond massage gel, the gel is colorless and has silver shimmery particles inside. It is supposed to be massaged on face and neck for about 10 minutes and the left over is to be wiped off with moist cotton. After you are done with cleansing, scrubbing, moisturizing The Fifth step is about applying a face mask to optimize the results, you have to apply the Diamond wash-off face mask here. This mask also contains tiny shimmer particles 😛 , once you’re done applying it, let it dry for about 10 minutes and wash off or clean with a moist cotton pad. The Sixth Step or the last step is about putting the oil-free moisturizer on your face and neck, it’s a yellow colored gel which has a faint smell. What I really like about this is that it comes with SPF 15.The after-effects of VLCC Diamond Facial Kit left me impressed, my skin was well nourished and looked healthy and radiant post usage. Facials break you out sometimes, but this one didn’t do any such thing. It comes at a fraction of the cost compared to what we pay at the salon and gives equally good results. It fared really well on my dry skin, but I am unsure about saying that it would fare equally on oily skin too. The quantity provided inside is enough to do 2-3 facials. These kits are easily available online on discounts giving us one more reason to add them to our vanity 🙂 . Though the results are short lived but at this price, you just can’t complain. I am so impressed with the quality of Comfrey Cleanser cum Toner that I am buying a full sized version soon 😛 .
Enough ranting! Buh-bye! Hope this review helps 🙂 .
