VLCC 3 Day Acne Corrector Review



VLCC 3 Day Acne Corrector Review
Hello everyone,
Happy New Year to all of you once again.
It’s been like 2-3 days since I have not done any product review. It was a really busy week but now I am back to business. Most of us do suffer from occasional pimples if not with the severe acne. I do struggle with pimples that erupt every now and then. Most of the times they will just pop out on days you want your skin to look clear (you know what I mean .:D). Getting rid of them is always like a struggle. 
We try different acne treatment products to vanish them quickly and then our search goes on and on. Recently, I came across this product called VLCC 3 day acne corrector. Prior to that I was using Garnier Pimple pen which got over so I tried this VLCC acne care.

Price-  79 INR. Quantity- 9 ml

VLCC 3 Day Acne Corrector
Company says- Enriched with clove known for its anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties that purify and cleanse skin from within to prevent outbreak and recurrence of pimples. Menthol has deodorizing properties which revitalize the skin.
Additionally, this contains Salicylic Acid, which accelerates pimples drying out. Anti-bacterial properties of Salicylic Acid clear acne by controlling excess oil secretion thereby preventing occurrence of acne. This invisible gel corrector attacks pimples, blemishes and keeps skin clear and refreshed. It has drying effect on pimples and delivers visible results in just 3 days. Convenient tip makes application easy.

How to use - Squeeze a small amount directly onto the pimple and other imperfections. Smoothen the gel with a finger tip until absorbed.

My Experience- I wanted something that can clear the occasional pimples quickly or else it takes like 4-5 days on an average to get rid of them. I bought this when I had a really big pimple on the cheek. It is a clear gel formula that comes in an elongated nozzle like front so as to dab the gel on the pimple or the targeted area. It says that it has clove, menthol and salicylic acid so, when I applied it for I could actually feel the tingling or burning sensation which remains for a longer time. I does dry out the pimple but one the first day after applying two three times unlike the claim that it dries from the first application. It cleared the first pimple in 5 days and a little mark was also there which I think would have been cleared even if I did not do anything. It dries out the area and the hence the skin around the targeted area starts peeling due to its effects.

When you apply it it feels sticky for a very long time and my hair strands keep on sticking to it. I hate such products since I have my hair cut in layers so it annoys me a lot. Moreover, this product was sealed pack but still it has a crack underneath the nozzle, you can see in the pictures how the gel is oozing out from there. where is the quality check.???
Overall, I am not satisfied with this pimple treatment product.
Pros of VLCC 3 Day Acne Corrector
  • Easily available
  • Pocket friendly
  • Nozzle tip makes application easier
  • Does work up to some extent only
Cons of VLCC 3 Day Acne Corrector
  • Only key ingredients have been mentioned
  • Stings badly and burning sensation
  • Does not get absorbed and sticky
  • Does not clear pimple in 3 days at all
  • Peels skin which looks bad
Rating- 2.5 out of 5 
My Take- I am not satisfied with it as I have used Clindamycin gel (prescibed) which was around the same price and worked better than this without peeling or stinging. I will not recommend it.

    2. Yes, I am making a note of that gel and will check at local chemist shop. I used to think VLCC products generally work. If i had not read this review, I would have preferred this over other similar products. So thanks :)

    1. I agree Richa, these stuffs are useless.. I think prescribed ones are far more better in reducing the inflammation and infection.

  9. Aw that sucked that it made your skin peel and sting! Whenever I have spots now I use a bit of water based benzyl peroxide, makes it dry up so quickly and then gone!
