Skin Care for Men....
Al these 3 in one are sure to have 'lightening' combination.
But have you ever thought that did our Father or Grandfather ever used any face cream or hair gel???
Even every cosmetic ad, cosmetic care shop were meant to cater needs of only- WOMEN. SALON for MEN was just a fad for my father but Fashion for my Brother. Somewhere between lies my BOY. But the way these brands are targeting Men for Skin care products, they will be forced to try at least by Blogger WAG's like us....
In India we have a custom of applying UBTAN to bride & groom during wedding pre-prep days. Those were the only days when a MEN were made to care for their skin.
Even my Husband is no exception, in my serious attempts to make him little conscious about skin care & all, i keep trying some reliable brands.
This time it was VLCC Men Active Light Fairness Face Scrub & Moisturiser.
"Mosituriser- Ok, I can use it but what would i do with this scrub?" Ok, valid point!
I bought this Moisturiser and Scrub combo long back but scrub was lying unused on my Bathroom until i insisted and gave him a nice clean up and whoaooo he was happy to find his new 'self''.
Product Claims & Directions for use -
Both the products are placed in FAIRNESS WITH TAN PROTECTION category targeted to control skin darkening and patches.This range has Face wash and Body wash too apart from Scrub and Moisturiser.
Scrub is positioned not only to exfoliate but control Black Heads.
While Moisturiser is meant to Protect from Tan with SPF20.
Product packaging- VLCC packaged it giving a Masculine kind of look with steel grey tube and flip cap opening.
Quantity and Price- Scrub is 75 ml @ 115 INR while Moisturiser is 75 ml @ 145 INR which i got at 95 INR in offer.
Key Ingredients- Mulberry Extracts, Mint Leaf extracts and Vitamin E for both.
Mulberry is known for its skin lightening (de-pigmentation & removal of dark spots) by hampering melanin formation.
Mint leaf extracts is known to rejuvenate skin and cure acne.
Texture & Fragrance- Moisturiser is thick white emulsion while scrub is gel based with micro granules. Both has a similar masculine fragrance which is quite soothing but does not stay long.
Availability- Online shopping site and on retail counters too.
My Take- (my Hubby's)- Moisturiser is good for keeping skin hydrated and nourished and did not make face oily. Neither did it gave any break outs nor any allergy. it will suit all skin types. But on Tan Removal or preventing Tan it did not worked as claimed. I guess for Men who are out in sun at least for 7-8 hours a little strong formula and higher spf content (50 or above is required).
When it comes to Scrub, it gave cooling effect and granules were neither too harsh nor too mild. Since my hubby has oily skin he liked its gel base and its cooling effect which was also quite relaxing while doing a clean up. After a single clean up, i noticed nice healthy glow and even ness on his face. Pigmentation around eyes, cheeks was all gone. it was a real scorer! No break outs or oiliness later too.
Overall i would highly recommend the scrub while you may give moisturiser a try since its monsoons and spf 20 is enough.
By the way what's your Man's favorite?
