VLCC Gold Scrub Review

Hi Everyone!!

How are you all doing? It’s monday so you all wouldn’t be doing great, I know. But I have got a beauty dose for you and I am here with a review of a scrub from VLCC. Gold in a scrub sounds too expensive and it should be, after all gold prices are touching the sky nowadays. Coming to the point, Gold has properties of beautifying the skin and keeping the skin youthful. It is being used in skin care since ancient times. So I thought maybe I could also glow like ancient women used to glow :) Let’s move on to the review..

VLCC Gold Scrub

Price: 175 for 70 g

Shelf Life: 3 years

Product Claims:

Exposure to environmental factors like pollution & dust make skin look dull and lifeless. This unique scrub, enriched with 24 Carat Pure Gold, Turmeric and Sandalwood has a deep pore cleansing action that gently exfoliates dead skin cells, superficial white & black-heads. It leaves the skin fresh & glowing with a radiant complexion.

Directions: Take an appropriate amount and apply all over face and neck with wet fingertips. Scrub for a few minutes with circular & outward strokes to exfoliate impurities. Rinse off thoroughly.

Key Ingredients: 

Extracts of Aloevera, Sandalwood, Raisin, Turmeric, Gold Leaf, Xantham Gum, Dimethicone, Triclosan and Vitamin E.

My experience with VLCC Gold Scrub:

The scrub has tiny yellow colored micro granules which gives mild exfoliation. This scrub works great for my dry skin, it makes my face soft & bright and the effect lasts for one day. The granules are not at all harsh on skin and melts easily while scrubbing away dead skin cells. This scrub is different from other scrubs, actually its granules are unique and I quite like it.

Fragrance: It has nice aroma and I love its smell a lot, it gives me a luxurious feeling.

Consistency: Flowy consistency, not rough or sticky unlike all scrubs which can not be used without wetting face. It glides on face easily and you can even use it without wetting face if you are feeling too lazy to get up and splash your face with water like my cousin sister who is so lazy to wash her face before scrubbing.

VLCC Scrub SwatchDid you see the yellow granules, the granules dissolve very easily without being too abrasive.


  • Brightens the skin.
  • The granules are not at all harsh.
  • Easily available everywhere.
  • Rinses off easily unlike other scrubs whose granules gets stuck here and there.
  • Cleanses skin deeply removing all dead cells.
  • Nice tube packaging.
  • Key ingredients are good for skin, are all natural.
  • Fragrance is nice and mild.
  • Gives clearer and softer skin.


  • All ingredients not mentioned.
  • The brightening effect stays only for one day.

Will I Repurchase?

Most probably no, I like trying different scrubs and when I’ll find my HG scrub I will stick to that.

Rating: 4.5/5 :)
