Lacto Calamine Classic moisturizer comes in a sturdy purple colored plastic bottle with a dark purple screw off cap. It has no dispenser. The mouth is bit wide that makes it difficult to control the quantity of the product need to be dispensed. When it is full moisturizer slides out quickly but when empty, it is difficult to get it out. Due to its open top, the neck and lid of the bottle accumulates a lot of dried gunk. The bottle isn’t see through so it’s hard to tell when you are about to run out of product. It has medicinal scent which is subtle and won’t bother sensitive noses. I got Lacto Calamine Deep Cleansing Face Wash free with it.
The moisturizer is dusty pink in color and has a runny consistency. It didn’t give whitish appearance to my face. It moisturizes my skin well but in winters I feel the need of an extra layer of moisturizer to keep my skin hydrated. It is absolutely oil free and serves as a good makeup base. My makeup stays on for longer whenever I use it as a base. It gets absorbed into the skin quickly and makes it soft, smooth and matte. It feels light and fresh that I really enjoy as I don’t like my skin to feel weighed down with products. This is a boon for oily and acne prone skin. Well whenever I suffer from acne or pimples I leave off my usual favored moisturizer (Lotus Alphamoist Moisturizer!) and use this as a night treatment. I cleanse and tone as usual and tend to use this before I go to bed at night so I can let it do its thing uninterrupted. You can use it any time of the day as it is oil free and keeps oil at bay for a good 6-7 hours. Whenever I suffer from acne I use it as spot application and it really helps me combating acne and makes acne scars/ blemishes appear less red and inflamed. It evens out the skin tone well, keeps it from being overly oily and doesn’t break me out. I also use it for curing and soothing insect bites. It is considered as a natural sunscreen but SPF value is not mentioned so I always make sure to apply a separate sunscreen to protect my skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays.
