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.

thanks for d review…


ansh November 29, 2010 at 3:45 pm

yes make sure! ur welcome πŸ™‚


ansh November 29, 2010 at 4:46 pm

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:


Smita T November 29, 2010 at 5:22 pm

The green colour is cute.. but doesn’t look all that good overall, thanks for the warning πŸ™‚

hey ansh… even I had used this astringent n tonner 3 years before. it used to come in transperent bottle, and the liquid inside was so deep green gawd!!!!! i couldn beleive this ws a herbal product by its colour.
after applying it on my skin , it actually started burning , and as u said no pore minimising effect totally zero.After three to four days i threw the bottle and bought amway’s
Attitude toner, through my cousin,its really good on my skin.It minimises pores ans remoes dirt or make up satin very nicely…… :-*
