Vicco Turmeric Skin Cream (with Sandalwood Oil) AKA the cream that saved my
ass skin. About a month ago, I had a major allergy breakout on my face. I still don't know what caused it, but I *can* say it was pure hell - itchy bumps that wouldn't go away and when I scratched them bloody (I'm like that), they wouldn't heal. That's when I started using this ayurvedic skin cream by Vicco. Maybe it's a coincidence, but my skin has gotten a lot better since then. Wanna know more about it? Read on.
Let's see what the package says:
''Vicco Turmeric, an Ayurvedic Medicine, prevents and cures skin infections, inflammation, blemishes, wounds and other skin disorders. It soothes boils, pimples, acne and burns. It nourishes the skin, improves tonal value and makes it fair and beautiful.''Ingredients: Extract of Turmeric 16% w/w, Sandalwood Oil 0,5% w/w, Excipients q.s. (in a non-greasy base)
I'm not gonna tell you about all the good effects turmeric has on skin, you can search for that information yourselves. What I can say is how this cream made my skin heal and look better in just one week. My previous favorite ayurvedic skin cream Fair & Lovely Fairness cream didn't work as well anymore as it did on the beginning, so I thought it was time for a change. I don't know for sure yet, but I think I might like Vicco even better.
Vicco Turmeric Skin Cream is pretty thick, pearly yellow and it has a very strong scent. And I mean STRONG. It doesn't botter me at all anymore, but it was pretty hardcore the first couple of times I used it.
This cream spreads very well and sinks into the skin almost immediately after the application leaving it soft and mattified. It's great for people with normal to oily skin, but not for those with dry skin. At first I thought it might be a bit too mattifying for my normal/combination skin, but it gets better after 30 minutes after the application. I've been using this cream for about a month now (in the morning and evening) and I can say I really, really like it. I'm definitely buying another tube before I use this one up!
I purchased a 50 g tube of Vicco Turmeric Skin Cream with Sandalwood Oil (there's also a version without SO) on Ebay for 7.50 USD and free shipping.
