Ayur Herbals Astringent with Mint and Cucumber
Good Day Everybody!
I’m so elated as this is my first post. I love this blog as it contains almost all beauty reviews. Seeing the huge collection of posts here, I too wanted to review the products which I use. So, here I go with my first post on Ayur astringent.
What is an Astringent?
An astringent is a chemical compound that tends to shrink or constrict body tissues, usually locally after topical medicinal application (source wiki).
Uses of Astringent:
- Astringent is used to control the flow of oil from the oil glands secreted from our body.
- It will be particularly useful to oily-skinned people.
This product claims to contain aloe vera , camphor and mint. It contains cooling properties and checks the over-secretion of sebum and is best suited for oily, acne prone skin.
Directions For Use:
Just pour a few drops of ayur’s astringent on a cotton wool and wipe slowly all over your face gently without harsh strokes. Never rub on skin. It’ll be effective if we apply it before wearing makeup.
Rs. 90 for 200 ml.
My Experience with Ayur Herbals Astringent with Mint and Cucumber:
I have oily skin like many of you out there. I tried a lot of methods for controlling the oil on my face, but nothing worked out. Finally, after reading an article by Shehnaz Husain on astringents, I started to use this. I have started using this astringent for over six months and found it very effective. Initially, I experience a stinging sensation when I apply, but it goes away after I apply a moisturizing cream. It’s a boon for people who are oily skinned. It acts as a cleanser. You can use it clean your face after a hard day’s work.
You can wash your face with a face wash and apply this astringent to clean your face completely. It’s a complete blessing during summer when we experience profuse sweating. When you are going for a function late in the evening, you can apply this before wearing your makeup and I’m sure your makeup will last long without much grease, but make sure you apply a moisturizer, so that it doesn’t sting for long. To say the truth, almost all of my pimples have vanished except for the acne pits which I am wondering what to do to get rid of them.
Pros of Ayur Herbals Astringent with Mint and Cucumber:
- A very effective product for oily and acne-prone skin.
- As claimed, it contains aloe vera, camphor and mint.
- Comes in a neat bottle which is transparent.
- I got mine six months back and I am yet to finish it.
- Of course cost effective!
Cons of Ayur Herbals Astringent with Mint and Cucumber:
- Full list of the ingredients is not mentioned.
- Leaves a stinging sensation after application.
Other than these, I couldn’t find any cons.
