Skin type: Oily and sensitive
I have recently purchased two new products from the brand Lacto Calamine. We all love their moisturizers which work so well on my oily skin as well. But, I never tried anything else from this brand, so I picked their newly launched Oil Balance Face Wash and Scrub. Now, let’s get into the details of the scrub.
Price: Rs.80 for 50g
Lacto Calamine Oil Balance Face Scrub helps remove dead skin and absorbs only excess oil, which when used twice a week gives beautiful glowing skin.
My Experiment with Lacto Calamine Oil Balance Face Scrub:
Lacto Calamine Oil Balance Face Scrub comes in a pretty white tube with a flip cap that secures the product perfectly. It is a pretty normal packaging and lightweight too. I am not sure that if it is available in any other size or not, but this small tube is a good travel-friendly one.
Now, it contains calamine and it smells exactly like their original lotion. I love this fresh sweet smell. I think it will suit to all. This scrub has a nice white creamy texture with some fine pink exfoliating particles in it. Such mild scrub is perfect for sensitive or acne prone skin. I do have sensitive skin; hence, it feels very smooth and doesn’t feel rough at all. Its smooth creamy base blends on skin well and the scrubbing particles are good to exfoliate the skin deeply. It never hurts my skin, although it deeply cleans my skin and makes it visibly soft. This product is also quite easy to rinse.
This scrub is especially for oily skin which removes oil and dead skin cells. It does its job perfectly to remove all the excess oil from face and makes the skin oil-free matte. I have super oily skin and it’s a much-needed product for my skin type. It contains Kaolin Clay which absorbs oil, and glycerin provides that desired hydration to skin. Though it is for oily skin, still it never makes the skin dry.
It works great to clean my skin deeply and removes dead skin cells as well. It makes my skin smoother and clearer. Its exfoliating properties work very well to remove dirt, impurities but not so effective on blackheads. It makes skin clear and refreshing. I really like its cleansing power that helps to make skin smoother and softer.
It claims to prevent pimples but I didn’t notice any huge difference. Though I don’t have any problems right now, so can’t exactly comment on this. But, as it is an oil-free product, it might help on that front too. But, it is a nice skin brightening facial scrub which instantly provides a noticeable glow to my skin and removes that dull tired texture from my skin. I am using it with the face wash from the same range and both work well together.
Overall, I like this product and its freshness which works good on the oily skin and it is affordable as well.
