My experience using the lotion:
I wasn’t aware that this moisturizer was available in India. In India this is manufactured by Encube Ethicals Pvt Limited & Marketed by Gladerma. One day when I went to a pharmacy I saw a woman purchasing it, so I asked the pharmacist to show me one & asked him if suits sensitive skin, he said doctors even recommend this to babies with sensitive skin who develop rashes! I bought this one & I must say this is a very mild moisturizing lotion. The texture of the lotion is neither too thick nor too runny & it takes a while to get completely absorbed. It doesn’t clog pores or lead to break-outs.
If applied during the day time you need to use tissue papers for blotting your face to keep the greasiness down. I usually apply this during night; give my face a 5 minutes massage for the lotion to get absorbed & in the morning I find the skin soft & smooth.
What I like about the lotion?
- Non – comedogenic & doesn’t clog pores
- Worked really well during the winters.
- Fragrance free.
- Suitable for sensitive, acne prone skin.
- Didn’t break me out.
- Parabens free.
What I dislike about the lotion?
- Texture is little thick, takes a while to get absorbed & leaves greasiness.
- May seem little greasy for Oily skin but can be used at night time.
- Not a day-time moisturizer.
Will I recommend this to WiseShe readers? Yes definitely for dry or flaky or sensitive skin
Will I repurchase this lotion? Yes once I complete this bottle.
P.S. Please consult your Dermatologist before using any drug store bought moisturizer to know if it suits your skin or not. Always do a patch test on your elbow to make sure it doesn’t lead to reactions because sometimes when you are on some medication, some moisturizers give bad reactions 🙁
