VLCC Skin Defense Almond Under Eye Cream Review:

Hello sunshines!
I know it has been a long time since I have updated my blog! Well, I went to Hyderabad for my dad's treatment and it has been a very hectic schedule ever since! And the horror news I got recently about my exam, so, I am bit shaken still! But, I am doing better now and thought about pampering my blog a little bit.
So, today I am going to review my first ever under eye cream. Yes, I just hit 23 and it is too early to use these cream, but I want to secure my skin from old age! So, I bought VLCC Skin Defense Almond Under Eye Cream and now let us get on to the product details.



Product Description: This unique light formulation with the goodness of Almond & Wheatgerm nourishes & moisturizes the under eye area. It helps reduce dark circle and puffiness, also firms & tones skin around eye area. The natural active ingredients in this cream helps in reducing sings of fatigue & stress by increasing blood circulation in the effected area.


Price & Quantity: Rs. 190 for 15g.


Ingredients: Chamomile Extract, Wheatgerm Oil, Almond Oil, Olive Oil, Vitamin E, Dimethicone, D-Panthenol.


Shelf Life: 2 years.

My Experience with VLCC Skin Defense Almond Under Eye Cream :


Packaging: I like the cute idea of putting the tiny jar in a plastic stand, it is real cute! The jar is made of glass which I find very frightening to use keeping my careless nature in mind! The lid is made of plastic and the jar is quite useful to carry around or store even in small place. But I cannot deny the unhygienic condition of the cream because of its packaging!


Texture & Smell: The cream is white in color and it is of medium thickness, not too sticky or rich. It gets spread and blended very quickly and nicely. The smell is more and more of almond, and is quite nice.


My Take: The first thing I like about this cream is its hydration quiescent, it thoroughly hydrates the area and gives a cooling sensation after the application. I feel like I have applied cucumber cubes on my eyes area. It gets absorbed within seconds which I find very useful as I hate greasy eye area.




Now, although I do not have much problems in my eye area, but there are a few and the one that bothers me is my under eye area is little bit darker than my skin tone. So, I have been using this cream for the last month twice a day everyday. And, I have seen improvements like the brownish area under my eyes are much lighter and almost similar to my normal skin tone. I also had fine lines around the eyes, but for that I did not see any improvements.

I loved using this cream because the one thing that is very important for our eye area, keeping it moistured and hydrated is purely and nicely done by it. One must think it is too expensive for 15g, 200 bucks! I also do, but after using it for one month twice, regularly, only 2-3% of the cream is spent. So, one jar will survive at least 6 months, which I think is enough.

The Good Points:
  • Hydrates well.
  • Small and handy jar.
  • Smells good.
  • Keeps skin moistured for long time.
  • Lightens dark circle.
  • Nourishes under eye area.
  • One small jar survives a long life.
  • Absorbs fast, blends well.
  • Leaves skin oil-free.


The Not-so-Good Points:
  • Expensive.
  • Unhygienic packaging.
  • Does not remove fine lines.


My Rating: 3.7/5.

My Recommendation: I am a beginner in terms of taking care of my eye area. This under eye cream has been very helpful for me. It hydrates really (REALLY) well and keeps the area moistured and nourished. I am loving its effect on my skin. It has lightened the brownish area under my eyes after regular use. Although, I have doubt if it is powerful enough to deal with stubborn dark circles. So, I would not recommend anyone who is suffering from severe dark circle problem, you should try a powerful one. But if anyone wants to try their hands at under eye cream as beginner or just to keep your eyes looking fresh and hydrated, go ahead and try it.
