GlaxoSmithKline Dermocalm Lotion Review

Hello Readers, GlaxoSmithKline Dermocalm Lotion Review is my post today. Acne victims have to go through a lot. The moment they get to hear about a miracle which works on the stubborn blemishes, there is nothing that can stop them. When I was in high school I had lots of acne especially on my forehead. It was pathetic and I could not use anything in makeup to hide up as that led to giving birth to more breakouts. Thus finally I included calamine based lotion in my skin care. This was recommended by a friend who was facing similar issues.

My experience with GlaxoSmithKline Dermocalm Lotion

GlaxoSmithKline Dermocalm Lotion is available in a white plastic bottle with a flip open cap to ease extraction. The packaging might look boring but then its nothing less than a skin doctor so I don’t mind it. I have been using this brand for years now and there is always a backup in my stock. Although I do not get acne breakouts that often but whenever I do I replace my regular moisturizer with this and then forget about it, it takes care of the pimple marks in due time.

One needs to be careful while deciding the quantity of GlaxoSmithKline Dermocalm Lotion; little less than a dollop is required for the face and neck at a time. The consistency is creamy and needs a light massage to blend in. If one has a fair complexion then the lotion gives a sight pinkish tint to their skin, owing to the color of the product. On my medium complexion, it simply helps to brighten up. Instantly face looks hydrated and relieved of flaky dry skin. The finish is more healthy but for oily beauties, you might need a pressed powder on top to set it matte.

Over time it improves the complexion or rather makes it clearer and even. The rate of breakouts goes down (provided one does not live on junk food). The blemishes start fading away and skin gets rid of other ugly marks. Personally it made my skin less sensitive under the sun but I cannot vouch for the same results on everyone. As far as removal of eczema and scars are concerned, I am not too sure as touchwood I do not have any. In all it works great as a dry skinned moisturizer without any greasy feeling.

Overall GlaxoSmithKline Dermocalm Lotion is an excellent dry skin emollient which relieves dry, parched skin via its rich calamine formula.
