Hello friends today I am going to review one of the most popular & old product- LACTO CALAMINE LOTION. I know most of the people have already used this lotion but I still thought to review this product as this is one lotion/cream which many people stick with specially people with acne prone sensitive skin.

I also have sensitive acne prone skin & this LACTO CALAMINE LOTION was recommended to me by my dermatalogist around 2 to 3 years back when I had lot of acne & pimples. Since then I am contionuously use this lotion- sometimes daily & sometimes on alternate days...as per the need.

SO here starts my review on lactocalamine lotion.


Lacto Calamine Classic Daily use formula with balanced Kaolin & Glycerin. Discover Skinsurance with Lacto Calamine. The goodness of Clay & Glycerin gives your skin:

     1. Nourishment;
  1. Acne & Oil Control;
  2. Dead skin Removal
  3. Protection.
    Apply everyday for clear, beautiful skin.

PRICE- Rs 70/- for 60ml


The lacto calamine bottle is very simple yet quite easy to use. Though some people find it too unhygeinic to use but i dont have any such big big problem with it. Atleast in this much price we cannot complain.

The consistency of the lotion is quite liquid. On application the face appears to be little white , dry & cakey for few seconds but i always apply some sunscreen on top which removes the dryness.Applying Lactocalamine mixed with some sunscreen makes my skin looks almost flawless with glow. I just love it. It works for me as a foundation too when i need very light coverage.

My skin remains matt for quite a long time after application of this Lacto calamine lotion. It also controls my redness , itching to some extent & my pimples gets reduced quite a lot if i use this on daily basis.Thus this Lacto Calamine is definitely good for acne.

All in all i juz love this lotion & would continue to use this in future because i dont think any cream could replace this.

I would like to add one thing more here that since quite some time , a second variety of this Lacto Calamine lotion is launched with aloe vera. This is known as LACTO CALAMINE ALOE MOISTURIZER.

Both the lotion appears almost same to me .The only difference between the Lacto Calamine CLassic & Lacto Calamine with ALoe Vera is this that the former is for oily skin & the later for dry skin types.


I mostly use the classic one but sometimes when my skin feels too dry i use one with Aloe Vera. This Lacto Calamine lotion with aloe vera is definitely good for people with dry skin as it moisturizes skin with aloe vera.


Good for acne skin.
Keeps skin oil free
Adds glow to face instantly on application.
Reduces pimples to a large extent.
Very cheap
Also available in another variety with aloe vera as ALOE Moisturizer- for people with dry skin.
Easily available both offline & online.


Classic one might dry out skin sometimes.
Does not give sun protection- though this is not something harmful , but a missing quality.

RATING- 4.5/5

  9. Hi der lactocalamine does reduce itching to a great extent I have used and love it

  10. Thanks for d review. I totally agree. I too hv acne prone, sensitive n combination-dry skin. I hv hard time finding right products for myself, nothing easily suits me. I hv been using this lotion Lacto Calamine (Aloe) for the last 2 summers continuously and it actually kept my skin acne - pimple free d whole of summer! That is something. It really is an all-in-one lotion except d sunscreen part.
    It gives dry touch (not oily or sticky) feeling after application (yet moisturizes), so I dont need to apply compact or loose powder over it, to give a finish
    d dry touch finish also prevents dirt n pollution 4m sticking on d face.
    it covers blemishes n marks somewhat,
    it definitely prevents inflammation, rashes n break-outs in summers,
    also dries up existing acne pimples
    it also works like a foundation kind of base, giving d face a smooth even look. Basically works like a whitening brightening fairness lotion.

    I also apply sunscreen over it to go out. It basically keeps my sensitive skin n all its probs under control. I found d classic purple one a little drying for myself, it is for oily skin ppl.
    Once my mom had rashes on her arm n d doctor prescribed calamine lotion. And now whoever, whenever develops a rash somewhere on d body I apply this lotion n it actually settles that n prevents itching as well.
    It is my basic summer lotion, which I always hv, no matter what I try.
