I wanted to buy a herbal toner, so was confused between Himalaya, ayur and vlcc. But at the drugstore only vlcc one was available. So I made my choice. I bought it an year ago and 80% of the product is still left. Wondering why? Read on.

My experience with VLCC Astrinent:

Since the product claims its for oily skin, I bought it. My oh my how it itches your skin! NOT AT ALL FOR SENSITIVE SKIN. My skin easily turns red whenever I wax or even thread. So I have to be very careful about the products I use. This irritated my skin like hell.

  1. What kinda astringent is this that does nothing??? 😯 😯 …apart from inducing khujli to your skin!! :-/ :-/ :-/ ..I may carry it for defense purposes, whenever I am travelling alone… πŸ˜› πŸ˜› ..so cheap!! πŸ™‚ …Thanks for the review Ansh!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  2. astringents are basically for oily skin. the problem is oily skin is generally sensetive due to all that acnes n pimples. toners are for dry skin. but they also suit sensitive skin. so combo/oily skin people are left to wander on their own! i dont know if dat makes any sense! πŸ˜‰ :laugh:
