Diwali is just a week away and it is yet another time to celebrate our happiness with our loved ones…J I wish this year it turns out to be more fulfilling for all our lives.
Today I will be reviewing another Vlcc product which is VLCC Insta Fair & Glow Fairness Cream (Mulberry & Licorice) with SPF 15 which I have been using since last month and it is about to finish so I thought now it would be the perfect time to review it.
About VLCC Insta Fair & Glow Fairness Cream (Mulberry & Licorice) with SPF 15:
Its breakthrough formula enriched with Mulberry and Licorice extracts lightens skin tone & makes it glow. Insta Fair & Glow Fairness Cream is developed for lightening dull and dark skin. It prevents darkening, un-even skin tone and re-energizes the skin. Its unique formulation works by inhibiting the melanin generation and reduces darks spots. SPF 15 protects the skin from harmful rays which steal your fairness.
- Price: Rs 49 for 25g.You can buy it from here
- Shelf Life: 36 months from mfg. date
- Key Ingredients:
- Licorice Extract, White Mulberry Extract, Vitamin E, Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Niacin amide, Titanium Dioxide, Dimethicone.
Directions to use:
Apply evenly on freshly cleansed skin covering and neck. Apply twice daily. To enjoy best results use along with Insta Fair & Glow Clear Skin Face Wash for beautiful fair skin.
This fairness cream looks very similar to the packaging of Insta Fair & Glow Clear Skin Face wash, so much that it is a little difficult to differentiate between the two. It comes with a silver screw top cap and a wide nozzle so that sufficient amount of cream comes out with the squeeze.
Product color & Texture:
This cream is pearl white in color and has a greasy texture which takes a few seconds to evenly spread on the entire face & neck. Once applied it is absorbed quickly by the skin. It is not at all sticky after application so oily skin beauties too can give it a try.
The cream has a sweet fruity fragrance which is very mild and would not be an issue for sensitive noses…!
My experience with VLCC Insta Fair & Glow Fairness Cream (Mulberry & Licorice) with SPF 15:
I like to try out new products, be it a face wash, scrub, pack or anything related to skincare. Talking about how this face cream suited me it would be appropriate to say that the instant fairness and glow part claimed by the brand is true, at least in my case. Once you apply it makes the face and neck look fairer but the fairness is short-lived and it doesn’t work on improving the complexion.
One thing worth mentioning is that I found my face a little dry after applying this cream, so it turned out to be the first con for this cream. Also the claims of inhibiting melanin generation and reducing dark spots are not at all true. I believe that this cream is only for those who are looking for the ‘fairness’ quotient as it effectively works in that area.
The ‘glow’ part claimed by this cream is also not true so this again is a big con for this product. The SPF value of this cream is 15 but honestly I have not tested its sun screen protection, as I was afraid to see the results and paranoid about getting tanned with this cream, so I cannot comment on that…
I thought only 25g won’t be sufficient for me to use and decide whether it really works or not so I picked two tubes from them. And after using one tube itself I can say that it is not worth buying again…

What I don’t like about VLCC Insta Fair & Glow Fairness Cream (Mulberry & Licorice):-
- Fairness imparted is short lived and extrinsic
- No additional glow
- Doesn’t lives up to its claims
- Dries the skin (not suitable for dry skin)
Product Rating: 2.5/5
Would I recommend/repurchase?
No, I am not going to buy it again. I already have enough of it.
I would say it is better to try some other face cream/ day cream than buying this one with so many cons…!!
