It is one of the first skincare products that I ever used growing up. It's a great cream to give you the perfect matte finish, especially if you have an oily skin. It's got a natural skin color that makes it the perfect product to hide minor blemishes and pigmentation on skin and I, personally, use it as a replacement BB cream or foundation at times when going for an all natural base.

It’s so good you can apply it on your face everyday day. Apply it on your pimples at night they decrease in the morning. It reduces rashes, sun burn,body acne, allergies everyday. It gives a bit of sun protection as well due to zinc oxide. It’s moisturizing and matte.

Though I have dry skin type but my T zone tends to get oily on certain days which leads to acne. Lacto calamine is super useful then and saves me from the dreadful acnes. My mum has been using it and so have I. I will continue to use it.

I say this quite frequently that I am a fan of Lacto Calamine. I started using as a multipurpose lotion initially and soon it became one of my most favourite beauty products. And I was surprised to get it prescribed by my daughter's pediatrician too when she was getting prickly heat and rashes. And so it has become a multipurpose lotion for our entire family now. Lacto Calamine Oil Balance Lotion (For Oily Skin) is specially made for oily skin and combination skin. I have a combination skin that gets too oily during the summers and too dry during winters. So I use Lacto Calamine Oil Balance Lotion (For Oily Skin) during the summers or while being in humid weathers. It is a clay-based lotion and comes in an opaque bottle with a lavender screw cap. It has a unique clay therapy called Kaolin clay. This clay contains natural minerals that help to remove dead skin cells. Applying Lacto Calamine Oil Balance Lotion every day while going out protects my skin in a better manner. It gives a matte look and controls excess sweating and oils. Keeps me fresh for up to eight hours and doesn't need an extra application of the lotion. Keeps my skin blemish free and reduces the scars and marks. Evens out uneven skin tone. Cons - If the weather is too hot and humid, it leaves white patches around the mouth area. And another drawback of this product is it contains paraben. The fragrance is little towards a stronger side but vanishes in a while. Overall it is a very good product and has earned trust with its good quality and consistency. And it remains the flagship beauty brand of Piramal Healthcare. It is a pocket-friendly solution for many skin issues including acne and pimples. Protects the skin from pollutants, harsh sun rays, and climatic issues.

Travel friendly. Pocket friendly. Lactocalamine is available in various variants and in different sizes and quantities. The key ingredients are kalion, glycerine and zinc oxide. As I'm an assistant professor in pharmacology i can tell that kalion absorbs excess of oil from skin, glycerine removes the clogged pores in the skin and zinc oxide soothes the skin & removes any dust particles present in the skin. I personally experienced smooth and supple skin after its application.

Fabulous product.

Lacto Calamine lotion has been known since 3 decades. I still remember seeing it in the vanity of my cousin sister when I was a child. It contains Aqua, Light Kaolin, Castor oil, Glycerin and Zinc oxide. The Kaolin clay is an exfoliant which help in removing dead skin cells. The lotion claims to give a soft and supple skin. Lacto Calamine Oil Balance Lotion (For Oily Skin) has been specifically manufactured for people with oily skin like me. It comes in a opaque white plastic bottle which is sleek. The cap is lavender in color and it is of a screw type. I think the product should come with a proper dispenser as the liquid flows without a control and one should be extra careful while pouring the lotion. The product is available in various sizes. The price is reasonable. Lacto Calamine Oil Balance Lotion (For Oily Skin) has a light pink color. It's consistency is not too thick but similar to that of a liquid foundation. It has a strong smell which some don't like. It makes the skin fresh and soft. The application is simple. Shake the bottle before use. Now take a small quantity of lotion and apply dots all over the face. Blend it using your fingertips. The lotion glides smoothly and gets absorbed into the skin. It controls the oil in skin for 6-7 hours. It can also be used to treat rashes and to smoothen mild irritation. As the lotion is soft it doesn't clog pores. It doesn't make skin greasy. It also controls zits, pimples and lightens marks to an extent which are caused by them. It can't treat big acne.It gives a matte finish. It hydrates the skin making it supple. It doesn't make a stretchy effect on skin and could be used as a primer at times. Lacto Calamine Oil Balance Lotion (For Oily Skin) doesn't not contain SPF, so it doesn't protect the skin from harmful rays from sun. It sometimes leaves a white casting layer during summer.

PROS

Gives matte finish

Easily available

Non-greasy

Controls acne and pimples

Controls oiliness

CONS

Strong fragrance

Needs a little effort to blend


Not so long ago, I had a lot of pimples. The areas around my cheeks were the most affected. It happened out of the blue, and I couldn't digest it. When I went to a dermatologist, along with other medications, she prescribed me Lacto Calamine Oil Balance Lotion (For Oily Skin) (since I have oily skin).

It will be too unrealistic to say that this Lacto Calamine Oil Balance Lotion saved me. But indeed, after six months of constant care and medication, my skin is almost back to normal.

How did I use it? Well, every morning after I wash my face, I shake the container because the liquid base and the creamy base get separated while storing. Then, I take a pea-sized amount and spread it all over my face. It needs a little more effort than usual while blending, but that’s a minor thing for me.

After application, my skin feels oil-free, and the effect lasts for almost 6-7 hours. I use it as my night cream as well, which means I use the lotion twice a day.

Initially, I was doubtful about this lotion because I barely saw any chances of my pimples reducing. Though it gave me nice control over my oiliness, my main concern was my pimples. But then after a while, my pimples started drying off, and there were no new pimples. Some faint marks are still there, but that’s ok.

I am very satisfied with this Lacto Calamine Oil Balance Lotion. It helped me with my crisis.

An important note: The pimples disappeared not because of this lotion only but with prescribed medication and controlled diet.

Mattifies and hydrates skin

PROS

Gives a matte finish

Controls oiliness

Best for oily skin

Controls sweating to some extent

CONS

Strong smell

No SPF


I have just started using this a week back, and it is probably early for me to review this, but the results are amazing! I have very oily skin, so oily that after one hour of face wash, my skin gets oily.

This lotion mattifies the skin instantly as well as hydrates it, which last for a very long time. I use it as a primer during the day and as a night cream before I sleep. At night, I wash my face, tone my skin with rose water and then apply this lotion. I am expecting a very positive result, looking at the way things are going now.

Overpowering smell and leaves a whitish cast

PROS

Can be used on rashes and bruises

Speeds up healing

CONS

Strong fragrance

Needs a little effort to blend

Leaves a whitish cast behind


Though I have oily skin, I did not like this lotion very much. The smell is too overpowering, and the texture is very rough. I also don’t like the fact that I have to keep shaking the bottle and rubbing it. If I don’t blend it properly, I get whitish casting. So it is a complete disappointment.

However, I do use it. Not on my face, but on rashes and bruises. I take clean cotton, dab some lotion onto it and apply it on the affected areas. It speeds up the healing process. But I don’t use it on open and fresh wounds.

Best budget-friendly moisturizer

Lacto Calamine Oil Balance Lotion is the best budget-friendly moisturizer for oily skin. The lotion soaks up the excess oil and leaves my skin feeling fresh for hours. My acne has also visibly subsided.
