Lacto Calamine Skin Balance Oil Control Lotion Review

Hello Friends,
Today I am going to Review Lacto Calamine Skin Balance - Oil Control Daily Nourishing Lotion. Lacto calamine is a well known product by all Beauties. This product used by our moms too, and it is an old famous brand. I have tried it's old version two years back when my Dermatology Dr advised me to use this one. I have found that made my face more oily. So stopped it and continued my Fair n lovely as my day cream. Later, I have completely stopped using Fair n lovely after I had so many terrible skin allergies and decided to switch over something herbal. Recently I have read Madhu's Review about Lacto calamine and inspired a lot. So, I have bought this variant as my day cream. Let's see the Review.......

Glycerin helps control excess oil thus reducing acne, making skin smooth and clear.


My Experience With Lacto Calamine Skin Balance - Oil Control Lotion :
It is a square like plastic bottle with scroll type lid and the lotion looks light pink colour. The texture of the lotion is runny liquid one. The perfume is as usual Lactocalamine's smell no change.


 This Lotion is actually for Oily to normal skin / pH 8 a Daily Skin Nourishing Lotion with the goodness of Glycerin and Kaolin. I will pick a product which is claim to control oiliness and pimples on face.(of course every beauties does). I had no hopes this lotion and just wanted to try, so bought it.

I have applied it on my face after tone up, it is little difficult to blend. It will take a few minutes to absorb by the skin. So, I did the same and after I saw my face on the mirror, wow!!! My face looks so fresh and matte finish. I have never expected this result, so got amazed so much. You can see my hand swatches here,

There is no white patches, no scary look and my skin felt so soft and supple. I have checked it's freshness staying power. Not bad My face looks fresh for long hours and I didn't feel to wash my face. I didn't cover up it with any compact. I am using it with a compact powder for urgent make up in the evening. Working so perfectly and my face stays fresh for long hours.

In sunny day I felt sweating on my nose and chin areas after applying this lotion. It doesn't harm my skin and I never had any breakouts or allergies.I am seeing a subtle glow all day on my face and I am very happy with this Lacto calamine lotion.

My Likes with Lacto Calamine Skin Balance - Oil Control Lotion :
  • It is a safe product on skin.
  • Best Day lotion for oily skin beauties.
  • Gives a perfect and matte finish after applying.
  • Mild perfume won't bother your nose.
  • No breakouts and allergies.

My Dislikes With Lacto Calamine Skin Balance - Oil Control Lotion :
  • It is little difficult to blend on skin.
  • Very Dark skin beauties should stay away from this Lotion, because it is pinkish in colour won't suits for dark skin tones.
  • May cause sweating in very sunny day.
  • No SPF
  • Not a travel friendly pack, may coming out more lotion than needed while taking out.

My Final Verdict Lacto Calamine Skin Balance - Oil Control Lotion is a best lotion for oily skin beauties as well as for sensitive skin girls.......

  9. Great work. that was pretty interesting. Inspiring, as well. Thanks for sharing such inspiring experience with us. Great blog, congrats!

  10. hey lovely,

    thanks for the review, just like to mention a few points -
    1) The Zinc oxide and zinc carbonate does act as sunscreen, although the exact SPF factor is not mentioned.
    2) As the lotion is actually and emulsion. Always shake it really really well, this will help in evening out the consistency of the lotion when it comes out of the bottle and will in turn help in blending it out on the skin.
    3) To further combat the oiliness and breakouts, use a toner with 1% salicylic acid before applying lacto calamine. Salicylic acid while very beneficial for breakouts, can be harsh on sensitive skin, but following it up with lacto calamin which is alkaline (ph 8) helps in neutralizing its irritating effect.

  11. to blend it easily ,mix a little rose water into the really works...
