As a school going teenager, the only skincare issue I faced was sun burn and excessive oily skin(no pimples). Our neighbour happened to be Kolkata's topmost makeup artist and when I asked him how to treat my skin to prevent the oiliness and shine, he suggested cleansing the face with Neem based soap and moisturizing with Calamine lotion before going out. Those days the concept of sunscreen was confined to the West only. I followed his instructions and thankfully was benefited a lot. After so many years when I got the Ethicare Remedies Caladew Calamine Lotion for review, it reminded me of those days.
About Ethicare Remedies Caladew Calamine Lotion:

Instant cooling effect.
Non-opaque lotion base.
Price: Rs.81 for 75ml Available here
Packaging: Ethicare Remedies Caladew Calamine Lotion comes in a pink tube with a white twist open cap.
Product: The lotion is light pink in colour, with the water and cream a bit separated.
My Experience: Ethicare Remedies Caladew Calamine Lotion has brought back old memories when I used only calamine lotion as a moisturizer. Calamine lotion needs to be shaken a bit in the bottle before taking out and applying. Due to the tube packaging, it is a bit difficult to shake the lotion. However, once you apply the lotion on the face you feel the difference. The lotion spreads easily leaving it feel matte and bright. It is a great skincare product for oily skin as it prevents oiliness and keeps the skin matte for a long time. The mild sunscreens present in the lotion prevents the skin from excessive sun-damage.
Ethicare Remedies Caladew Calamine Lotion is an excellent remedy for oily skin that tends to get shiny during summers. The lotion also has anti-bacterial properties, that makes it a great remedy for rashes, prickly heat and other summer related skin issues. As said it can be used by children as well to stay sun-safe this summer.
