VLCC Natural Sciences Gold Scrub Review

Guest Post by Yendrilla

Hi Guys I’m Yendrilla, a part time blogger from India. This is my first post on MABH and I am up with a review of a scrub today. First I should tell you I love to experiment with products like scrubs and face washes. I had been looking for a scrub which will add radiance to my skin and I ended up buying this VLCC Natural Sciences Gold Scrub.

Product Description:
Exposure to environment factors like pollution and 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 and black-heads. It
leaves the skin fresh and glowing with a radiant complexion.

Price & Quantity:
Rs.135 for 70 gm

Key Ingredients:
The face wash has mentioned the key ingredients as “Extracts of Alovera,
Sandalwood, Raisin, Turmeric, Gold Leaf, Xantham Gum, Dimethicone, Triclosan and Vitamin E”.

My Experience with this Product:
This product is packed in a golden coloured tube with a flip type cap which makes it hygienic for usage. No complaints about the packaging; it is pretty okay.

The scrub is gel based, yellowish in color and almost transparent with some yellow micro granules and small gold particles in it. It has a mild fragrance which is really soothing.

It is very gentle on skin. I am using it for the past 2 weeks and my blackheads have almost gone. It provides a deep pore cleansing action that gently exfoliates dead skin cells. Though I didn’t find much radiance effect in my skin as the product claims. Okay, now let sum up with the pros and cons.


  • Comes in a hygienic and travel friendly packaging.
  • The consistency of this scrub looks attractive due to the small gold particles.
  • This granules are very mild so that even sensitive skin types can use it.
  • I did experience no side effects with this scrub as its formulation is very gentle on skin.
  • Though mild and gentle, it does a deep pore cleansing action effectively.
  • It clears blackheads very well. All my blackheads were almost disappeared within 2 weeks of usage.
  • The price is that not costly.

  • I did not find much radiance as expected.

My Rating: 3.5/5

Recommendation: I think this scrub will suit all skin types except the extra dry ones. After using it, my skin got a little dry and hence I think it will do best on oily skin. However, if you want to clear your blackheads, then you can give this product a try.

Would I repurchase?:  I guess NO. I didn’t like this scrub that much. There are many more scrubs in the market with better results, at much cheaper cost. Right?
