Himalaya Herbals Deep Cleansing Astringent Lotion: Super Gem Find!

I finally found a great astringent that really delivers results for those days when I suddenly break out--days I absolutely hate. Here is the Himalaya Herbals Deep Cleansing Astringent Lotion and its for oily and acne-prone skin.

What Himalaya Herbals say:
Reduces oil secretion. Keeps skin oil-free. Controls acne and pimple breakouts.
Himalaya herbals deep cleansing astringent lotion has been specially formulated to reduce oil secretion and effectively control acne and pimples. It gently but effectively deep cleans the pores, removes excess oil and reduces oil secretion to keep your facial skin clean and refreshed. Citron and Lemon have strong cleansing, astringent and anti-bacterial properties, while Common Sesban reduces oil secretion and removes excess oil from the face to prevent acne, pimples and blackheads.

I've been using this for over a month now, and I have to say that it works. The first time I used it, my pimples dried up immediately. The next day, the redness was gone.

The astringent doesn't have a clear color like most astringents have. This one has a brownish murky color. It actually has a spout top but mine suddenly collapsed so I have to shake up the bottle as I put the cotton pad over it. I guess that's a drawback of this product, but that's really the only one I can think of.

I'm a super oily girl, my eyelids are oily, my face is oily, hell even my scalp is oily! So this product is an immense help for me. By the way, I'm not acne-prone, I just breakout sometimes so I'm not so sure if this works well for those with acne.
I also use the shampoo and conditioner variant of this brand and it smells really great and helps my damaged hair. Not yet on my super gem find list, but its good!

Himalaya Herbals Deep Cleansing Astringent Lotion is available at any Watson's store. I forgot how much it is but I remember its below P150.
