This stirs up so many memories as my earliest memory of any beauty product is of my mother’s dressing table. She used very few products and a Lacto Calamine lotion was a staple on that table. I am talking about a time when foundations, BB creams, CC creams, primers, did not exist and it was either this or a small bottle of Lakme foundation on every woman’s dressing table. When I saw this bottle in one of the local stores and tested it, I was immediately transported to the time when i was a baby and my mother had a familiar fragrance of this lotion. So today we are going to review the Lacto Calamine Skin Balance Daily Nourishing Lotion in the combination to normal skin variant for oil control. It is also available in other variants for different skin types.

My review of Lacto Calamine Skin Balance Daily Nourishing Lotion:
Lacto Calamine Skin Balance Daily Nourishing Lotion comes in a compact and handy plastic bottle without any pump. It has a screw cap which can be removed to take the product out. This product is a really primitive version of tinted moisturizers and is still a staple in many homes. This version is for combination to normal skin types and has a light peach/pink tint. It contains Kaolin clay and aloe vera along with water, zinc oxide, zinc carbonate, and sorbitol solution which acts as a moisture retainer. The lotion is light in consistency since it is water-based and is very easy to blend into the skin. It works on oily areas by absorbing excess oil and cleaning acne-causing dead cells. It also hydrates dry areas with aloe vera and cleans the pores using zinc oxide.
I was actually looking for a good daily moisturizer with a matte finish as the sunscreen I currently use as it leads to excessive sweating on my face. I now use this lotion on top of my sunscreen for the perfect dry finish. It controls oil for up to 8 hours. Another good thing for me is the soothing clay-ey fragrance of this product. This is, however, my personal opinion and you might or might not like the fragrance. I love the soft and rose-y smell. I love the matte finish of this lotion also but excessive dry skin may not like this product. I have a combination skin so it is perfect for me. It gives a nice and even finish to my skin but the coverage is very sheer so you can either spot conceal under this lotion or wear any other light foundation on top of it.
Overall, I have found a great drugstore treasure and this is going to be a staple for me for everyday makeup. It is a good makeup cum skincare product in one and gives a nice matte finish in this humid weather.
