This is my updated version of How to bleach safely at home. As much as I loved the Oxylife Creme Bleach, currently it is very difficult to find in the stores. I had to find a new oxygen beach, and then I sighted a similar version in VLCC. Lets see if it fits in for Oxylife.
Price- Rs 60 for 25.7g
Product Claims: VLCC insta glow oxy Bleach gives the skin a fairer look in just 10-15 minutes. This bleach cream releases the nascent oxygen which helps to declog the skin pores and thoroughly deeply cleanses the skin. This also comes with a pre bleach cream that protects the sensitive skin against the irritation caused by the bleaching action. This oxygen bleach is mild enough to be used on the sensitive skin.
Contents: The kit contains a pre bleach cream, a white colored bleaching cream and a powdery blue activator inside a tiny tube. It also contains a tiny spatula which is not so practical to use. Also the mixing cream bowl is too tiny and the activator powder often tends to fall off while mixing in. The entire bleach can be used twice but the pre bleach cream comes in a sachet which can be used only once :(
Coming to how I use it. My routine of bleach application at home hasn't changed much since last year, you can read it here. Fragrance wise the product does not offer anything special, It has a regular facial bleach smell.The bleach does sting a bit, however it is milder than the other bleaches available in the market. I leave it on for 15 minutes and it does not cause redness or rashness. It delivers subtle results, nothing magical like my favourite Oxylife Creme Bleach. It bleaches my facial hair but the glow is not noticeable. The freshness it promises is definitely not prominent. Also I miss the post bleach glow serum provided in the Oxylife Creme Bleach. Hence, when compared to Oxylife this one fails to impress me!
- bleaches facial hair as promised
- did not react on my skin
- milder than other strong bleaches
- easily available
- pre bleach cream can be used just once
- no post glow serum provided
- does not add prominent glow
- subtle results
"So many of you wanted to know an alternative to Oxylife Creme Bleach because of its availability issues, this one does not offer magical effects like Oxylife. However it is not harsh and belongs to a reputed brand, so it wont hurt to try if you are in search for a mild bleach! "
