Vicco Turmeric Skin Cream Review, Price, Benefits and How to Use on Acne

By Contributor: Chirali

Hello Earthlings. Or I suppose a better phrase would be makeup-lings, you know, because any one reading VNA is interested in beauty, fashion and other such things…ok, this is getting a bit weird. Sorry, let me start over. Hello everyone, This is my first review on this blog as you can see from my dismal attempt to be funny at the beginning. In this review I will be talking about this face and hand cream called Vicco Turmeric WSO Skin Cream. Now, before some of you wrinkle up your pretty little nose at this local brand, just hear me out.

A newbie at all things makeup and fashion and beauty, even still, I find all this, a work of art. Only it’s your body that is the canvas and the makeup and brushes used to paint and create amazing works of art. But unlike the regular canvas, we all have to take care of ‘our’ canvas, aka our skin or otherwise the constant use of different products on it can cause it to break out in pimples, acne, black heads etc which not only looks unattractive, it is also your skin telling you that its unhealthy and to take better care of it. Like for example, I’ve seen on some people that if they are suffering from any type of stomach problems, their skin breaks out in pimple and acne. Whereas for some, including me, when I get dehydrated my cheeks get really dry and flaky.

By now you must be wondering, this is not WebMD!! So why am I talking about all these health/ skin related problems? The reason why I took on this topic as my first was because this is something I have experience in. Unlike most beauty related topics, I feel that I can give a sound and useful judgment on why you should almost always go for products that are more herbal and made with traditional ingredients.

Vicco Turmeric Skin Cream reviews

My Review:

I have been using Vicco Turmeric for about 6-7 years now. I did take a break from it once, and am regretting it. When I started college, I stopped using Vicco Turmeric, I’m not sure why, but I did, instead I started this new cream called the Olay Natural White All in One Fairness(both night and day one) and well, in the beginning it was all going great. My skin never felt better, but in the last one year this cream gave me so many problems… no matter what I did, how little or more I put on it never did what I wanted it to do. Either I my T-zone got too oily or my cheeks started to crack up. And in the winters, this cream was a nightmare. My skin was a mess, flaky and dry skin all over, no matter how much or how many times I applied it. So, eventually I was fed up of this cream and maybe it was not the fault in the cream, but over a period of time, my skin itself became immune to it or something but, whatever it was doing right before, it was not working any longer. So, one day while searching for a new cream I recalled Vicco Turmeric and instantly I knew that I had to get it and start working on the damage that that Olay cream had done to my skin.

My mom is a big fan of the grandma’s nuske as we all call it, and believes whole-heartedly in all things ayurvedic and herbal. She is not against chemical products and understands their importance, but she very strongly feels that though the chemical based products might be effective quicker, their results don’t last long and the constant use of such high chemicals on the skin day after day can take a toll on your skin, causing it long term harm. Initially I did not believe her, but after going through the effects of using such chemical based face cream I too am a strong adviser of more natural and herbal based products.

Now on to the actual cream, so my mom only used to buy this cream and would make us apply it all the time, she used to encourage us to use Vicco Turmeric instead of the more expensive and branded face creams. And I do have to say, that except of the mandatory time every teenager goes through where your whole face is covered with acne and pimples, I was pretty fortunate to have avoided anymore after that and was blessed with clear skin. I know this because a lot of my friends commented on this fact. (Feeling proud!)

Now the ingredients used in the cream are very basic like extract of turmeric and sandalwood oil is almost 16%. and it’s said in the description that this cream can also be used on cuts, burns and bruises etc. So, multi- purpose added as well.

Another great thing about Vicco Turmeric is that it’s in a very non greasy formula, so cheers for all the oily faced people out there (me included). It’s a great product to use in the summers when almost everybody’s skin is oily and sweaty; it’s very effective in keeping your skin free of excessive oils and moisture.

But when there are pros, there are cons too. I do have to say, that it can be a bit too drying in the winter seasons. Like I mentioned many times in the lines above, I have oily skin, but I also have, in winters specifically, very dry cheeks. That means that although my forehead and nose stay oily, my cheeks dry out very fast and get flaky. So basically I have combination skin, but I still prefer to go for skin care products that are more targeted towards combating oily skin problems.

So, yeah that is a negative point for it, but what I usually do is that I apply Vicco Turmeric first, let it sit for about 10-15 minutes and then apply, only on my cheeks, a moisturizing cream that is for dry skin mainly the Vaseline or Nivea creams. Those babies make my cheeks all soft and supple.

Vicco Turmeric Skin Cream review ingredients

The Benefits of Vicco Turmeric Skin Cream:

  • It’s completely natural, made with ingredients with ayurvedic properties.
  • Its affordable, no shelling out the big bucks. Very and I mean very easily available. You can find it at any chemist or beauty store around you.
  • The smell is amazing. Very appealing. And will not disturb any sensitive noses out there.
  • Its an Indian brand( you are promoting Indian trade and not increasing the bank balance of outsider brands)
  • No harmful effects, not including any allergies, anyone can have them. But other than that, no side effects.

The Side Effects of Vicco Turmeric Skin Cream:

  • People with dry skin might not like it, due to its non greasy formula, but still, if you want to give it a try go ahead. There won’t be any damage.
  • Winters can be a problem with this one, as it can be a bit drying, but that might just be a personal issue and might not occur with everyone else. Also, you can apply this and then put on some regular body lotion or moisturizing cream if you want to.
  • The results will take their time. Being almost 100% natural and ayurvedic product this cream will not show instant result. It’s going to take some months for any results of this cream to show, but rest assured it will and well as they, slow and steady wins the race.
  • Do not use if you are allergic to any of the ingredients used.

Price: Rs.150 for 50g

VNA Rating: 4/5

Will I be Buying it Again? Absolutely

Do I Recommend? Yes, absolutely. Oily or combinations skin people will love this, as it gives that amazing matte finish that you all love and leaves the skin feeling light and fresh. The smell is although a bit strong, but none the less, its natural and will remind you of the sandalwood trees the main ingredient in this cream. Dry skin and people with sensitive noses might find it to be a problem, but I believe that if you can go a little extra mile and apply a small amount of normal moisturizer then it should not be a problem.

The only reason I would recommend that everyone should give it a try at least once is only because it is fully natural and unless you are allergic to any of the ingredients used, then it can do your skin no harm.

  2. I have used this long time ago and honestly forgotten about it. Must try again. Great detailed review :)

  3. Agreed! I too like the cream and m using it from quite sometime now. Infact i was actually thinking that some fashion blogger should do a review on it. Since it absorbs quickly n is not greasy i use it as a night cream daily.
    regarding your winter care part i really don’t think its specially a winter cream coz i think its more of a healing cream. However someone might choose to differ but i do think it does have healing properties as it did lighten my skin tan and also my acne is in control. Thumbs up from my side too! :-)

  4. Last year I got so curious about this, I went ahead and bought a tube.. :D
    I somwhow like the smell, though it is too strong! It didn’t have any effects on my skin though. :(

    • Can we use vico turmric cream on summer? My skin is so oily. And I hv pimples on my face so plz tell me it is good for sumer

      • Yes you can. it will give you that matte finish too that will immediately give you the look of a pressed powder. it helps with the acne also as it does not clog pores. It does have a strong scent but I like it. I live in the tropics so I can agree it will be great in the summer. Winter, not so much as you will need a more creamier lotion to protect your skin from the harsh cold.

    • Hiii i have used this cream for last 1 and half years it gave me nice glow and helped me in getting my tone back but gradually its all benifts disappeared i am not understanding why this cream stopped functiong on my skin

    • I want to useit n dis is my first night using it bcoz b4r sme month i hv got acne on my face but my face is too dry so can i put vaseline on my after using it

    • I have been using this product as a night cream since quite a long time. It has always been great. But i was told that we cannot use this cream during day time as it will make our skin more prone to suntan. Is it true?

  6. I’ve used this few years ago but my skin just didn’t feel ok with it on, it used to clog my pores. So i stopped. nicely reviewed

    • Hello Rafiya,
      I can only say this from my personal experience but this cream definitely worked for me. You can give it a try if you are not allergic to the ingredients in it. Otherwise since its not chemical based you should not have any major problems as such.
      Hope this helps.

  7. I started using it as a night cream few days ago…My skin feels smooth and soft….and thanks to your review ..Im more confident on using the product.

      • Well, I don’t know how much effective it is for pimples at a particular place, but it does have healing properties and personally I have a pretty clean forehead since most of my pimples and acne occurs around my cheeks, so I didn’t have that problem but you can give it a try.
        But, one reason for pimples can be dandruff that comes down and settles on the forehead and cheeks, the particles settle into the skin and it forms into a pimple. Make sure that you keep a clean scalp, and also wash and moisturize your face daily, I have seen that it helps in curbing of pimples since the cleaning will remove the dust or dandruff particles from settling into the skin and forming a pimple.
        Hope this helps.

    • Amrit, I don’t know how effective it is for scars and all. But since it has healing properties, you can try. OR you can try Bio Oil if you want something that’s targeted specifically towards scars and marks.

    • Balpreet, yes we can use it in summers I have oily combination skin and well, I generally use this is in summers only, coz it can get very drying during the winters….but this has definitely been a life saving product for me, I too suffered from really bad skin problems a few years back, but the constant use of this cream has really made a positive effect on me.
      The cream is perfect for summers coz it will keep your face matte, meaning no more oily T-zone, and the smell is just perfect, and it has this cooling affect that just makes your skin feel so soft and cool… you know what I mean!
      so, sure you can give it a try, as long as you are not allergic to any of the products used in the cream you don’t have to worry.
      Hope this helps :)

    • I have not really experienced any side effects as such, just don’t use it in the summers coz you might get bad acne. I know coz I did…it was all over my face. Now, I don’t know if it was some kind of side effect or it was due to it being summers and so the oil retained heat and that resulted in the acne. So..that’s all I can tell you. Hope it helps.

  8. i am looking for face whitening creams is it useful for me?? and my skin is very dry.. can u suggested for me??

    • I don’t think it will be good for people with very dry skin coz the cream is very non greasy and it dries out the skin anyways, even oily skin, so it might be a problem for dry skin people.
      And it might lighten the tan and all but I don’t really use it to have a fairer complexion so I don’t really know, but the ingredients can give a slightly lighter complexion but it definitely won’t take you from brown to complete white or anything. Hope this helps.

  12. I started using it as a night cream few days ago…My skin feels smooth and soft….and thanks to your review ..Im more confident on using the product.

  13. i have so many pimples on my face.i tried most of the cream and home made face pack. bt it didnt work. can u plz tell me can i use vicco for this problem?? is it helpfull??

    • I have tried Vicco today for the first time. I have aged skin that is blotchy and easily damaged. The cream base smells like lanolin to me which is a no-no as many people are allergic to this animal (sheep wool fat) product. I am not inclined to use it anymore. Also, it is too heavy for our very hot summers. I would prefer a light oil base like almond oil or even coconut oil.

  14. whts the time required for healing the pimples and acne.. n whts the time for removing the scars and black marks

  15. Can male use this cream regularly?
    Will it stop the hair growth on face ? ……………Please reply me.

  18. Hy every one even im gonna try n use this cream…i have dark spots on my chin n forehead hopefully it vanishes by using vicco skin cream…lets hope fr the best results

  19. Picked a tube randomly off a shelf in Lulu Hypermarket in UAE. It’s a product I’d seen my older cousins using in the 90s. And I was too afraid to use any cream/lotion on my T zoned skin. However, years later, I’ve been feeling the need for something for my non-T zoned skin areas. So when I saw this tube, nostalgia stuck and decided to go for it, especially as it came cheap :-) Wonder of wonders, it’s not only evened out and improved my complexion working on the sun damage, my acne marks have faded remarkably, my black heads have reduced in density and my face feels surely better. Since I’ve been one of the last women who visit beauty parlours, Vicco’s been doing great. The best part is, even after 4-5 hours at work, my face has not been turning greasy. I’m not sure what’s the reason behind it- but I’m glad I began using it. It’s been just over a month, but am glad for my skin which had been left unattended too long!

  20. Can I use pores reducing ingredients with vicco turmeric cream on the skin such as honey or any other natural ingredients?

  21. Comment: Actually my skin is oily .But no pimples. when I started to use vicco turmeric cream , it leads to pimples on my face. so what can I do.
