VLCC Pista Massage Cream Review
My skin feels worst when it is dry so my skincare routine mainly focuses on deep and intensive hydration. I have been using VLCC Pista Massage Cream for several years as it is meant for my skin type- Normal to Dry. I usually massage my face in the night before going to bed as it is the best time to nourish the skin. Apart from hydrating the skin, a firm massage helps to improve blood circulation and provides a glow to the skin.

Product Claims: Pista, the rich, delicious nut is an excellent natural moisturizer. Enriched with Vitamin E, VLCC Pista Massage Cream fights against free radical damage and UV rays, protects and strengthens the skin, and improves the complexion. This multi-action cream, with the goodness of pistachio and nutmeg, delves into the skin to give it cellular protection and a youthful glow. Use this massage cream regularly for all your home facials along with VLCC face masks.
Price: Rs. 260 for 50gms
My Experience With VLCC Pista Massage Cream: This cream comes in a jar with a screw cap which shuts tightly making it a travel-friendly option. Since I do not usually prefer jar packaging because of hygiene reasons, I use a spatula to take the product out. The cream is light green in color and has a thick and soft texture. Only a little amount is enough for a nice and relaxing face massage. It glides easily on the face and takes some time to get absorbed into the skin. I massage it for several minutes with wet fingertips to ensure maximum absorption. It is the regular use of this cream that helped my skin stay moisturized in winters. Since my skin tends to get dry in winters, I sometimes take a tiny amount of this product and spread it evenly on the face and it works just like a heavy-duty moisturizer. If your skin is very dry, I suggest adding 2-3 drops of olive oil or almond oil to the cream before massaging your face.
I have been using this cream at bedtime for many years now and it works really well on my skin. I wake up with soft, moisturized skin and a fresh face in the morning. Sometimes, I follow it with a face mask to pamper my skin.
VLCC Pista Massage Cream has a strong fragrance and while I do not have an issue with strong scents, its smell seems artificial. It has pistachio like smell which lingers on for some time after applying the product. Its smell is not unpleasant but it may bother those with a sensitive nose.
This cream is suitable for normal to dry skin and is a great product for use in winters. If your skin is extra dry, you can use it twice a day or even use it as a day or night cream. However, it may not work for oily and sensitive skinned people. Its texture is thick and absorption is not very quick so it may cause breakouts if used on oily skin. Priced at Rs. 260, it is one of the most affordable massage creams available in the market and its performance will not disappoint you.
What I like about the product
- Hydrating and nourishing.
- Keeps skin soft.
- Imparts glow.
- Can also work as a day/night cream.
- Good for dry skin.
What I don’t like about the product
- Strong smell.
Verdict: VLCC Pisa Massage Cream is a good product for keeping the skin hydrated and nourished. I recommend it for hydrating normal and dry skin. Its regular use keeps the skin soft and nourished.
Rating: 3.75/5 ( Minus points for fragrance and not including a spatula)
