Dr. Reddy’s Venusia Squalene, Aloevera and Vitamin E Acetate Cream Review

Dr. Reddy’s products are held in high regard generally. Though I have never tried any product from this brand before, I had wanted to for a long time. But naturally, like any cream prescribed by a doctor I was afraid that Venusia cream might create side effects. Yes, Venusia cream is not only used as a moisturizer but prescribed as a skin protector from UV rays, for skin disorders, irritations, anti-aging, burns, inflammation etc. I got over my fear after numerous researches and here I am with my experience.

PROS :

  • I’m a little impressed with the packaging. You’ll see why looking at the pictures. Cool, isn’t it? The container is visible partially and the whole gold and green combo is quite pleasing to the eye. The product itself is in a white container with a green cap.

  • Personally, I love its smell. It is so fresh and pleasant.
  • It is a white, thick cream. Though it looks heavy and too thick in the bottle, it melts and gets absorbed by the skin easily once you massage it.

  • It is very very good at moisturizing even super dry skin.
  • Venusian cream is non greasy.
  • Most importantly, it did not break out my skin.
  • It keeps the skin moisturized for 7-8 hours.
  • I found it to be quite good at removing sun tan.
  • Venusia cream contains amazing ingredients like Squalene, Aloevera and Vitamin E. Why do I say they are amazing?
  • Well, Squalene, extracted from olive oil, is an antioxidant that prevents UV damage and age spots. Additionally, it promotes cell growth.
  • Aloevera nourishes the skin to keep it soft and supple and adds glow to it.
  • Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant and slow down the ageing process. So, basically it has an anti-aging effect.
  • Also, it is ideal for both men and women.
  • It can be used for face as well as body.
  • Moreover, it is suitable for all skin types. Just vary the quantity according to skin type.
  • It is easily available in almost all pharmacies and some shops selling beauty products. If you want to buy it online you can check out here-
  • Quite affordable. 273 bucks for 75 gm is not too bad especially for such a quality product.
  • The container is quite sturdy and travel friendly.
  • Shelf life: 24 months.

CONS :

  • Unfortunately, it contains parabens.

Rating : 4.4/5.

SUGGESTIONS :

  • Clean the area whether you are applying to your face or body well and pat it drying before applying this cream.
  • After applying, massage the area for the cream to seep into your skin.
  • I recommend using this product twice a day. After bath and before going to bed.

MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE

Venusia Cream certainly finds multiple uses in my daily life. Not only does it acts as a great moisturizer and skin protector, when mixed with Aloe Veda Foot Cream it acts as a great foot cream that hydrates and softens the skin incredibly well. It does reduce tanning. But I cannot speak about the other said uses.

Would I recommend? Definitely. Give it a try. You’ll not be disappointed.

    1. Hi Priti,
      No it’s not completely vegetarian. It is a brown dot indicating it is non-vegetarian. It contains egg. Also, it contains squalene as one of its ingredients. Here is the tricky part. Squalene is generally derived from shark liver oil but nowadays it could also be driver from plant sources. The source of Venusia’s squalene is unknown to me.

    1. Hey Harshitha,
      If I have a kid of my own, I wouldn’t be using this cream on her/him. It contains parabens (both Methyl and Propyl) which is easily absorbed into the skin and may cause hormonal disruptions, Though there is no conclusive evidence on how much of it is unsafe, I wouldn’t risk it just in case. Do consult another doctor to get a clearer idea.

      No, I’m not a doctor but I have used Venusians Cream extensively. Yes, you can use it on your face. But just in case, do a patch test just to be on the safer side..

    1. Hi Abhisikta,
      It can be used for cracked heels but I’m not sure about healing pimples.. The best way to get rid of pimples is through your diet. Avoid oily food and start including fresh fruits in your diet. Wash your face, 5-10 min after coming home. The dust and bacteria accumulated outside will result in clogged pores causing pimples. It’ll be a slow process but this is the most effective solution. You can use mederma or some other scar removal cream to get rid of the pimple scars.

    1. Hey Jiana,
      If you check out the ingredients, you’ll note the presence of parabens. It might not be safe for infants. However if your pediatrician has suggested it, do a patch test on the hand before applying to his face.

  3. Hiii mam , am using venusia cream for face but face face becoming black nd oily..can u suggest y my face looking black after applying

    Reply

    1. Hey Tabu,
      I need to check on few things before determining if the blackness and oiliness is due to Venusia cream only …
      Do you have oily skin?
      Do you use sunscreen?
      Are you using any other cream or product along with Venusia cream?
      On a general note though..using too much of cream might clog the pores especially if the skin is oily..but face becoming black, I’m unable to comment on it..going out in the sun without a sunscreen is the only way the skin will get tanned..try to stop using the Venusia cream for 2-4 days and see if the problem has stopped..
      Thanks Tabu..

    1. I am not sure..it worked in evening out my complexion but others here have mentioned it has an opposite effect..one really inexpensive age old tip for that is gram flour mixed with a bit of turmeric and curd..or you can just use gram flour while taking bath then apply soap..thanks for stopping by Harika 🙂

  4. First I was using Diprovate ➕, then I stopped from & I consult the doctor she gave me Venusia cream to apply on my face…Then i applied , after 4 th day I got red rashes & tiny tiny pimples on my face…now my face full of reddish color..what to do?

    1. Hey Arshiya,
      Stop using the product immediately. Venusia cream does have parabens which might have caused the problem. Stop using any skin products or makeup for the next 2 days and just observe your skin. If your rash is itching, dab a bit of pure coconut oil (without hibiscus and other stuff they add in it) on the rash. Avoid it on the pimples. Do not go out in the sun as much as possible. If you must, then carry an umbrella. Tell me how it goes in two days. Thanks Arshiya. Hope this helps!

    1. Hey,
      I don’t think it’s working..try Mederma scar removal cream..it is better..you will visibly notice the scars getting lighter.. venusia evens out the skin tone but I don’t think it will completely remove scars..thanks for dropping by Priya 🙂

  6. Hi nivetha,
    I have normal skin but I got my complexion more darker after shifting to nagpur..might be it’s because of water change….can I get my skin tone back as previous after applying this cream

    Reply

    1. Hi Priya,
      The change in skin tone might be because of increase in the chlorine content of water..I faced the same problem when I moved to Singapore..I just stuck to my usual skin routine..same face wash, mask etc.. eventually my skin got back to normal..no venusia doesn’t make the skin whiter..so stick with what you already do, your skin will eventually adapt…thanks for dropping by Priya
