Oil Balance Lotion from Lacto Calamine Appearance
The lotion is light pink in color and it also bears the traditional “Lacto Calamine” fragrance. I love the fragrance, it feels very fresh and light. This lotion has slightly thick consistency. However, despite having thick consistency, the lotion is quite runny.
Also the wide opening of the bottle makes it difficult to control the product flow. I wish it had a pump style packaging or a flip-top cap with a small hole. That way, it would have been easier to take out the required quantity.
My experience with Lacto Calamine Oil Balance Lotion for Combination to Normal Skin
I have been using this Lacto Calamine Oil Balance Lotion for Combination to Normal Skin for past one month almost. It spreads easily on the skin. The lotion gets absorbed quickly into the skin without leaving behind any white cast. It also mattifies the skin almost immediately.
The lotion keeps the skin oil free for 3-4 hours. However, it doesn’t make skin dry or feel stretchy at all. You can easily apply makeup on top of it. In fact, this lotion can double up as a primer as well.
I have sensitive, combination and acne prone skin. It gets oily no matter whatever moisturizer I use and then, becomes dry if I do not apply anything! I am always in the lookout for a good combination skin moisturizer. This neither makes my skin oily, nor dry. It also gives me a moisturized, yet shine-free matte skin for like 3-4 hours.
Regular application of this lotion helps to dry out the small zits and pimples and clear up the skin. But it doesn’t work on bigger acne, at least in my case. It soothes the skin and also helps to maintain the natural pH balance which is essential for healthy and glowing skin.
Overall, Lacto Calamine Oil Balance Lotion for Combination to Normal Skin is a good moisturizer for normal to combination skin. It moisturizes and also hydrates the skin without imparting any greasiness. It is great for controlling oiliness of the skin. Regular application helps to keep skin healthy.
