Dermadew Caloe Cream Review

A calamine lotion with aloevera ! Calamine+Aloevera  makes it Caloe :). I had reviewed the Dermadew Aloe Lotion earlier here : http://celebratingfeminity.com/2012/05/11/derma-dew-aloe-cream-review/ .

Both the products are very good on skin, I am happy :). Lets see how the Dermadew Caloe Lotion fares.

The Look and Texture: Its a peachy pink colored, thick liquid much similiar to other calamine lotions, but the texture is thicker and heavy, but spreads easily.

The Smell: Its has kind of floral notes, its strong to my nose but it depends, some may not find it that strong. However, it fades away with time.


My Experience: Though its thick, it spreads evenly all over the face and lends a glow to the skin immediately upon application, acts like a low profile tinted moisturizer :). Its prescribed by dermatologists on many skin conditions such as rash, acne etc and even for marks treatment. But, it could be drying on the skin, and in case of dry skin conditions and related rashes, it is better to avoid it. One of my cousins got a burn on her face while cooking, which had left its mark, but  regular application of this cream topically, erased the mark completely over time. It also acts on pimples, I apply it all over my face and locally on pimples , it dries them overnight and also reduces in size.  Though, its a calamine lotion, its not that drying, that is because of the presence of aloevera in it. Hence, dry skinned people can also give this a try. Overall, its a great complexion enhancer.

Price: INR 180 for 100 ml.

Summary: Highly recommended! A calamine lotion, which is not that drying, so dry skinned people can also use it to treat their skin ailments. Works on rashes, acne and the marks on face as well. Helps remove burn marks as well. Overall a great lotion.

Product Score: 5/5


Beauty Tip: Baking soda for cleansing and Acne

Baking Soda or Sodium Bi-carbonate is a effective cleansing agent for skin. It cleans the skin of excess oil and reduces the occurrence of blemishes and acne. Recently, I had a few acne on my face and it effectively reduced its occurrence by keeping oiliness and dirt at bay.

How to use:

This is how I use it 🙂

Take a a teaspoon of baking soda and put a few drops of water to make a paste, taking care that its not too runny. Prior to this wash the face clean or clean it with cleansing milk or face wash. While the face is wet, apply the paste and leave on for about two three minutes and then wash off by gently rubbing the face. Its abrasive in nature, so people with sensitive skin should try it out carefully. Also if you have fresh acne on face , then just apply it and wash off, do not rub it.

It would make the skin squeaky clean and matte. Ideal for oily skinned people. Dry skin people better avoid it. I advice this to be done twice a week. Excessive use of baking soda strips the skin of essential oils.
