Does VLCC Snigdha Skin Whitening Night cream serve the purpose of a nourishing night cream?

Ever since I have started using night creams and day creams I am tempted to try a variety of them. Few weeks back I was eyeing the Snigdha range of VLCC, when the PR contacted me for review of some VLCC products. They sent me the VLCC Snigdha Skin Whitening Night cream as well as day cream. Today's review is about the VLCC Snigdha Skin Whitening Night cream. After using for around 15-17 days am ready to post my review.

My experience
The cream is packed in a white, plastic tub with a plastic twist up cap. Plastic packaging makes it light to travel with, unlike the glass packaging ones. The cream has a pleasant floral scent which lingers a bit post application. Nonetheless I love the fragrance very much, it's not very strong, just enough to make it's presence felt. The cream is milky white in colour with a but frothy consistency. The cream has a medium texture neither being too heavy nor being light gel sort. This makes it very suitable for all skin types.

The cream gets absorbed when massaged for a while into the skin. No greasiness or oiliness is felt post application. I have oily and acne prone skin and the cream didn't make my skin oily not did it broke me out 😀👍. The cream required for each use is very little, hence it lasts longer. After applying at night the skin feels soft and smooth. Due to the moisturization of the cream the skin is plumped up giving an even toned skin. After using the cream for few days, all you get is a buttery soft skin in the morning with a very pleasant fragrance as you splash water on your face ❤️.

Coming to the efficiency of the cream, it shows very little effect on fading the dark spots. I haven't used the cream keeping in mind any whitening or skin lightening properties. I have treated it as a normal, nourishing night cream and the VLCC Snigdha Skin Whitening Night cream perfectly fits the bill. It hydrates, moisturises the skin perfectly and the skin feels rejuvenated in the morning. I would recommend the use of VLCC Snigdha Skin Whitening Night cream as a nourishing night cream barring the whitening claims.
