VLCC Punarnava Astringent Review
The product which I will be reviewing today is VLCC Punarnava Astringent which is meant for normal to oily skin. I usually wash my face at night and apply a night cream. But, someone told me that after washing the face, applying an astringent and then the night cream helps the skin in repairing itself. It helps in detoxifying the skin and also helps in controlling secretion of oil. So this is basically the very first time that I’m going to use an astringent. So I’m not too sure how well it would work.
Also, do go through the review on biocare coffee gel scrub. It is a wonderful scrub which removes black heads from the skin.
The astringent is enriched with the goodness of lemon, almond, aloe vera and honey extracts which cleanses the skin from deep within. It also tones the skin along with giving it a refreshing effect. It tightens the pores. It has antiseptic properties which controls pimples.
Direction for use
Clean your face thoroughly and remove all makeup. Take a few drops on a cotton swab and apply it over your face and neck. It might irritate your skin a bit but that would happen only when your skin is tanned. There is nothing to worry about it. It would just irritate the skin for a while and once you apply the night cream it will soothes it. You may use it twice a day also for even better results. After taking bath, apply it in the similar way. Once your skin absorbs it, apply the sunscreen.
Price & Quantity
The price of the product is Rs. 135 for 100 ML. The quantity would last for about a month if you will use it twice a day. I use it twice daily and its going to be one month since I bought this product and it is about to get over.
It is perfect for normal to oily skin types. It is quite effective on the oily skin as it controls the secretion of oil in the skin.
It has been packed in a white colour bottle which has the information related to the product. The packaging is quite handy and thus you can easily carry it while travelling.
It is green in colour and has extracts of lemon, honey, almond and aloe vera.

My Experience with VLCC Punarnava Astringent
I’m using it every day at night and once in the morning. I can really feel the soothing effect of the astringent after like 10-15 minutes. My skin is extremely oily especially on the T zone. But, it controls the secretion of oil only to a certain extent. However, that is only for a limited period of time. After 2-3 hours my skin again starts becoming oily. Especially at night when apply it, my skin is again very oily the next morning.
For me 3/5
Whether I would recommend this product again:
I would recommend it to people who have a normal skin. People who have oily skin cannot really depend on this product alone.
