As we all know, toning is a part of CTM routine. Through toning, the skin gets the firm back and closes the pores, and even cleanses the left over traces after using a cleanser. So, here I am with a review over a toner VLCC Skin Defense Punarnava Astringent.
Product Description: VLCC introduces a range of Skin Defense products. It claims to tighten the pores, detoxify and control the oil secretion through its VLCC Skin Defense Punarnava Astringent. It says that this even helps in preventing breakouts of acne.
Price and Quantity: Rs 125 for 100ml
Affordable. Comes a long way.
PRODUCT AVAILABILITY: It can be easily found over man beauty stores as well as online.
SHELF LIFE: 3 years
SUITABLE FOR: Normal to Oily skin
PACKAGING: It comes in pale colour bottle with a flip flop lid. The lid is tight enough to make it travel friendly.
Colour, consistency & Fragrance/ Texture: The toner is light green in colour which gives the Natural herbs feel. The consistency is runny. The fragrance is much strong and it might be difficult to hold on over the skin.
MY EXPERIENCE WITH VLCC Skin Defense Punarnava Astringent: This Astringent acts as a toner, which does work as it claims. Once cleansing is done, we need to take some toner into a cotton swab and need to wipe it all over the face & neck. Once done, need to wash off the face.
The toner when applied, gives a burning sensation and at the same time a cooling effect within few seconds after applying. So, due to this burning sensation, this must be strictly avoided by people with sensitive skin. If one doesn’t have any problem in using this, ignoring the string fragrance and that bit of burning sensation, then let me tell you that this works amazing. Beware of letting the product getting into eyes as it burns like hell.
As claimed, VLCC Skin Defense Punarnava Astringent definitely gives control over oil secretion, and tightens the pores. With the sensation, I initially felt that this might cause breakouts, but nothing harm happens unless the skin is quite like very sensitive.
– Tightens the pores and control oil as claimed
– Doesn’t cause any breakouts
– Includes all natural herbs
– Easily available
– Gives a Cooling effect
– Very strong fragrance
– Not suitable for sensitive skin
URG Rating: 4/5. It would have been a much good one if it wasn’t giving that burning sensation.
Do I recommend this VLCC Skin Defense Punarnava Astringent? Yes, as this is made of natural herbs, it would be a good choice, but only if you can ignore the strong fragrance and that little burning sensation.
Would I repurchase VLCC Skin Defense Punarnava Astringent: No! Would like to try toners.
