VLCC Skin Defense Almond Under Eye Cream Review

This is a guest post from Sangu who previously wrote a review on Himalaya Herbals Deep Cleansing Apricot Face wash,Trichup Hair-fall kit.

Hi Friends,

Our eyes are integral and sensitive part of our body. Hence we should take utmost care of it. But unfortunately our busy life style and lack of proper sleep results in dark circles under our eyes. Today I will be reviewing VLCC Almond Under Eye Cream Skin Defence. This is my first under eye cream which I had chosen after lot of online research a year ago. I had to look for an eye cream since I had developed dark circles and one of my best friend called me zombie  .Though he meant it jokingly, I took it very seriously and started the hunt of an under eye cream.

VLCC Skin Defense Almond Under Eye Cream Review


1)It contains richness of essential oils like Olive Oil,Almond Oil,Wheatgerm oil hence moisturises and nourishes under eye area.

2)It contains panthenol and chamomile extracts which soothes the delicate eye area.

3)It is a light-weight eye cream and gets absorbed quickly.

4)It reduces dark circles to an greater extent.

5)I noticed visible reduction of fine lines.

6)It does irritiate or sting the eyes so suitable for sensitive eyes too.

6)Little quantity is sufficient so one tub goes a long way.

7)Affordable & Easy availability.

8)Paraben free.


1)It is comedogenic.So if you have acne prone skin,see to that it does not touch rest of the face.

2)Jar packaging is not hygienic.You have to dip your fingers every time.

3)It contains silicones/dimethicone.

4)No complete disclosure of ingredients.

Direction for use: 

Apply appropriate quantity from the inside of the eye contour to the outside. Gently massage the eye contour area with your ring finger.

Final Verdict: 

I used to use it only at night but it can be used twice a day. For first few days it did not show any result so I thought I should not continue it. Surprisingly, it started working and my dark circles faded considerably. It will take care of dark circles before the bottle gets half. Hence one jar can last for a long time. Guys! Keep little patience since it is not a TV ad to show results the next morning. Good luck!

My Rating: 4.5/5
