Texture & Scent:
This lotion is really runny, so be careful when you pour it out from the bottle! This is supposed to be fragrance free, but it has a very light scent! :)
The bottle i have is the 250ml one which comes with a flip top cap. There's also the 500ml and 1000ml pump bottle ones available!
The flip top cap:
I wish they would make the hole smaller, since this lotion is so runny!! :P
The one i have is the old packaging! They've changed their packaging to this since:
But don't worry, the ingredients are still the same! :)
This lotion sinks into your skin immediately, which is great! My skin feels moisturized for up to 4-5 hours before i feel the need to reapply.
Price & Availability:
This lotion is priced at RM28.90 (i don't know if they're raised the price or not since i bought this almost a year ago), and should be available at most pharmacies and some Watsons outlets! :)
I use this as a day moisturizer as it doesn't leave behind a sticky feeling! :)
This is actually "prescribed" to my husband during his visit to a dermatologist for an allergy bout where his skin was itchy and peeling! I stole some of this to use, and i actually loved it!!
First up, it's really light and it doesn't leave a sticky feeling behind, which is great for our humid Malaysian weather (sticky lotions + humid weather = DISGUSTING!!! lol!)! It does a decent job at moisturizing the skin, and i love that the formulation is actually very skin friendly (good enough for Ezcema sufferers / Babies / the elderly!)! :)
This is also great for soothing itchy skin due to dryness!! I'm almost always in an air-conditioned room 24/7 so the dry skin on my legs can end up pretty scaly and itchy sometimes (especially after baths - doesn't help that i LOVE bathing in rather hot water! :P)! The relief i get from this lotion is instantaneous, and with constant use, my skin is smooth and moisturized again!! :)
So, the conclusion is, i will definitely repurchase this lotion once in a while, especially when i'm sick of all those heavily scented ones! :D
