VLCC Lovable Lips Strawberry Lip Balm

VLCC’s Lip Balm is a brilliant product. What I like about it is that it is available in so many variants – almond, cherry, honey, rose, mango, strawberry. My favourite one is strawberry because the colour is really pink and matches the natural colour of the lips. It isn’t just a lip balm, it is a lip balm, lip gloss and lip colour in one.

The price for each stick is Rs. 125/- for 4.5g and it is available online on all major websites and in all cosmetic stores.

The lip balm contains: Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E, Octyl methoxy cinnamate, Performalene PL & Benzophenone 3. The almond oil, jojoba oil and vitamin E makes it the perfect balm for combating dry and chapped lips. Jojoba oil is unlike most other vegetable oils resembles sebum which is a waxy substance produced by our skin glands, so it can act as a natural skin conditioner without causing any unnatural oiliness. It is perfect to make the lips luscious, lovely and lovable. Vitamin E helps the healing process in the skin. So, if your lips are chapped and they hurt, Vitamin E will heal them and make them soft, hydrated and supple again. The product has SPF 15 and is water resistant.

After a week: I’ve been using this for a week now and my lips are softer than before. This isn’t just a lip balm, it has colour as well. The light pink colour doesn’t wear off easily. It stays on my lips for a very long time.

The drawback: If your lips are dry outside the outline of your lips then you can’t use this product because it has colour in it.

VLCC Sweat Free Sunblock Lotion SPF 40/PA+++

VLCC’s Sweat Free Sun Screen Lotion SPF 40/PA+++ is a great product that is an absolute must have for every woman and man. I get tanned very easily and the sad bit is that I don’t get tanned symmetrically. I get burnt in patches. My skin reacts in a very horrid way to the sun. I remember the very first time I went to a dermatologist with my sun burn. I thought I had some kind of a sun disease. He recommended me a sun screen SPF 40. He also asked me to wear the sun screen at all times. He said I must also wear it at night.

VLCC has been my preferred brand for many cosmetics for years which is why I had to get a sun screen from VLCC too. When I got the sun screen I was ready to be sticky all day because sun screens do that. VLCC’s sun screen doesn’t do that. It’s quicky slippery and dries quickly. It is also sweat-free which means when one sweats in the sun this product will not wear off and will protect from tanning and ageing.

The price for the product is Rs.95 for 30 gms and Rs. 325 for 100 gms.

The sun screen is contains: comfrey plant extract and it has anti-irritant properties for people with sensitive skin. It does not cause any irritation and redness. The sun screen itself is very non-greasy and has a satin-smooth slippery feel to the skin. This cream suits all skin types.

After a week: I wasn’t tanned at all and I applied this cream for a week before going out in the sun. I was on holiday so I was in the sun from 10 am to 5 pm every single day. I haven’t been tanned at al, I did sweat a lot and the areas where there is excessive sweating is also protected which is quite impressive.

The drawback: I have PCOD so i breakout very easily, this cream suits my skin but i have to apply a layer of cetaphil before I apply it.
