Hello Beautiful People! ❤
I hope you all are doing great! 🙂
All of us have gone through a phase, once upon a time in our lives(Especially during the teenage), where embarrassment, frustration, anger came hand in hand with pimples! 🙁
It’s not just the hormonal imbalance of teenage but pollution, unhealthy lifestyle and oily skin, that further aggravates the problem causing more and more breakouts and though the zits subside later, they leave their cruel, confidence-killing marks and scars behind which might take years to fade! 🙁
Further more with an oily, acne prone skin, we usually tend to skip our facial moisturizer causing the skin to produce more sebum and hence even more breakouts! 🙁
So.. When I actually came across this antibacterial skin lotion from VLCC, I had very little expectations from it! I just wanted a moisturizer for my OILY skin that won’t break me out or make my skin more greasy!
BUT GUESS WHAT!!!
It worked WONDERS for me and I have completely fallen in love with it! ❤❤❤

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
I was in a hunt for a good Moisturiser for my skin type when I found this pretty bottle on Amazon and I actually got it at a discounted price for just INR 90! ❤❤❤ (I am somewhat like Shin chan’s mother, when it comes to sale & discounts.. *Grab**Grab* 😛 )
This Lavang Moisturiser comes in a simple white bottle with a flip cap.. The packaging is really sturdy and travel friendly.. ❤
The lotion is white in colour and has a thin consistency and a gel like texture.. It has a very strong and overwhelming fragrance of Lavang oil which fades away a slightly, once the seal of the bottle is broken… 😀
Initially, it stung a bit on applying(More sort of a cool, menthol like sensation), but with regular I have got quite used to it! 😛
The lotion easily blends into the skin and gets absorbed without leaving any oily residue or any greasy feeling as such.. It doesn’t make the face oily, unlike other moisturisers, even the gel ones for that matter! 😀
Also, it did control the sebum secretion to quite some extent! ❤
And, it controlled my acne & breakouts! Yes! It did! Within a few days of application, I could see a visible difference on my face! My acne reduced greatly… And with regular use, it totally ceased the appearance of acne on my face! ❤
Occasionally, I still find a few zits here and there, but they subside automatically on using this lotion.. ❤
But you know what made me fall for this cutie?
Something that is not mentioned on the pack! 😀
IT FADED ALL MY ACNE SCARS! ❤❤❤
I couldn’t believe my eyes! Just 3 days, and I could see all the old scars fading away ( I want to mention that I used Dermatologist recommended creams to fade these scars for 2 years and they didn’t work even a bit!!!) 😀
Within a month of application, my face was clear of all the marks and even the new zits didn’t leave behind any scars, no matter how much I picked them.. ❤
This has surely become my HG product now and I just can’t do without it! ❤
It’s a boon for oily, acne prone skin! ❤
