VLCC Skin Defence Lavang Moisturiser Product Review

Hello Gracies!

I am back with another review. Today, I am going to do a review on VLCC Skin Defence Lavang Moisturiser. This blog post will give you a brief idea about the product.

Honestly speaking, I switched to this product because Neutrogena oil-free moisturiser was out of stock. So, I thought I should give this lotion a try. I am using this moisturiser from last 15 days due to my oily skin and excess humidity in monsoon.

Now, let’s get straight to the review.

Price of the product: Rs. 140 for 100 ml

What the product claims:

The moisturiser enriched with Clove(Lavang) and extracts of Neem & Euphorbia helps in controlling acne and excess sebum secretion, leaving the skin non-greasy, smooth and radiant.

Method of use: After cleansing the face & neck, apply with gentle upward strokes. Use alone or under make-up.

Ingredients: Ananas sativus (Pineapple extract) 4%, Gandhak (Sulphur powder) 3%, Melia Azadirachta (Margosa-neem) extract 2%, Euphorbia thymifolia (Chhoti dudhi) extract 1.5%, Syzigium aromaticum (Clove-Lavang oil) 1%, Lotion Base QS.

My experience with this product:

DSCN3639-newThe packaging of moisturiser is very attractive. Colour combination of white and orange used for the packaging seems very appealing.

The product comes with a tight flip-top which makes it easy to carry in your handbag. The moisturiser is white in colour.

The product is specially made for normal to oily skin type and it met my requirements as stated. It has a non-creamy and running consistency which is great for oily skin type.

After applying this moisturiser on the face, it gets absorbed by skin within 15-20 seconds which is surely a plus point for this product.

It gives a non-greasy look on the face which I always demand from my moisturiser. One more thing which I liked about this product is that my pores did not feel blocked after using it.

DSCN3651-newOne particular thing I disliked about this product is its smell. This moisturiser literally smells like cloves which no-one would like in their moisturiser.

Whenever I apply this moisturiser, it always gives a cooling sensation on the face. Though I liked this cooling sensation on the entire face but it stings a little around my eyes. That is why I cannot use this product around eyes.

I won’t recommend this moisturiser to people with sensitive or dry skin because this cooling sensation may sting on their face.

People with acne-prone skin should use this moisturiser with VLCC Punarnava astringent to control acne.


  1. Gives non-greasy look.
  2. Absorbs into skin immediately.
  3. Travel-friendly.
  4. Affordable.
  5. Good moisturiser for oily skin type.
  6. Decent quantity of moisturiser related to the price.
  7. Herbal composition.
  8. Controls excess sebum secretion.


  1. Smells like cloves.
  2. Gives cooling sensation on the face. For normal to oily skin types, it will be ok. But it may sting on a sensitive or dry skin.

Will I repurchase it?

Overall, the product is definitely a good deal. You should not overlook its cons before buying it.
