Vicco is a brand, we all have seen since our childhood days. Its one of the oldest Ayurvedic brands that has gained the trust of many Indian women over the past decade. With too many brands up in the market, Vicco has finally expanded their line and has introduced the Vicco Turmeric Cream with Foam Base. The name can be misleading because this is actually a face wash. May be they wanted to retain the name Vicco Turmeric Cream, that they have come up with this name. Anyways, let’s move to the details of the product.

My take on Vicco Turmeric Cream with Foam Base:
Packaging: As you can see, the product comes in a white plastic tube with blue detailing on it. It has a screw cap attached to the top. The tube came housed in a card box with details about the product printed on it. I like the packaging, it’s small, travel friendly and fuss free to use.
Fragrance: It has a strong herbal fragrance, relatable to turmeric. Sensitive noses might find it bothering.
Color: Deep golden yellow color.
Texture: It is gel based and has a smooth medium consistency.
Experience: I’ve been using this for quite sometime now and I have to say that I have found a liking to this face wash. I require only a dollup to bring it to a mild lather. It cleanses the skin very effectively and gives a clean bright skin. While cleansing, it gives a refreshing cooling sensation which lingers for a few minutes after washing too. It must be because of the turmeric extract in it. I like that this face wash does not leave any slippery residue behind and is not overly drying. I do have the need to moisturize but it does not give a stretchy or itchy feel some face washes give me. Dry skin types would find it to be drying though. This is best suited for normal to oily skin types. Turmeric is supposed to be so good for acne. However, It did not eradicate acne or prevent the occurrence of new ones. But it calms down any redness caused due to acne to a great extent.
Finally coming to the part that is bothering me. The ingredient list. It has 16% of turmeric extract and the rest, I do not know. It says exipients q.s. which means it may or may not contain chemical cleansing agents. I’m leaving that up to you to decide. Also claims like it stops bleeding, heals cuts and injuries is a bit exaggerating. It cleans the pores well and clears out blackheads to some extent as claimed.
Overall, Vicco Turmeric Cream with Foam Base is a refreshing everyday face wash that gives a cleaner and brighter skin. However do not expect it to work on your acne, if that is what you are expecting from this face wash.
