Product Description:

Every day your skin loses moisture and precious nutrients from the sun, wind, air-conditioning or exercise. A simple daily routine of moisturizing your face, hands and body after showing is essential to replace lost moisture, and help prevent and repair dry skin.

Rosken's trusted formulation contains rich emollients including:

  • Dimethicone: Penetrates the skin to moisturize and relieve dry and chapped skin. It then forms a protective layer to seal in essential moisture.
  • Olive Oil Extract: Contains natural antioxidants that penetrate and moisturize the skin while allowing it to breathe.

Texture & Scent:


This lotion spreads easily unto your skin! I like how it absorbs in almost instantly and it leaves no stickiness behind! It has a mild lime smell which i kinda like! :D

Packaging:


This lotion comes in a squeeze bottle with a flip top cap! The dispensing hole's size is perfect too for controlling the amount you pour out! :D



They've since repackaged this to include a pump in it:



Time Test:
This lotion sinks in almost instantly, and my skin feels moisturized for the entire night! :D

Price & Availability:
This lotion is priced at RM32.90 (approx. US$8.89), which i think is alright! Other than this size, this cream comes in smaller bottles of 75ml at RM12.80 and 200ml for RM22.40. It also comes in a plastic tub of 250ml at RM25.80. This lotion is found in most Watsons / Guardian outlets! :)

Usage:
Since this one is so light, i find myself reaching for this one both day and night! It's perfect! :D


My $0.02:

This is my husband's actually! I stole some of this to use, and needless to say, it's mine now!! hahaha! XD

I love how light this one is!! All of us Malaysian girls can testify how hot the weather is over here! And like i said before, humid weather + heavy lotion = DISGUSTING!! hahaha!! :P This one's definitely suited for our weather!

But most importantly, i'm really really amazed at it's healing power!! This is my horribly dry heels:



And this is just ONE day after using this cream (3 applications):



Can we say AHMAIHZING or what?!!! lol!!

Ok, the angle of my foot is probably a little different, but it really did moisturize and soften my feet ALOT!! I'm really really amazed by this one!! I feel like abandoning all my other lotions for good already!! hahaha!! :D


Psssst: This lotion is currently going at RM26.24 only at Watsons, so go grab one now already! :D

  1. what a difference! I remember using this in my teens (for my eczema) but back then I was very lazy. Actually, I'm still lazy when it comes to body products :p but I'd consider this cream again!

  11. Hello there, i just started using this lotion for a week already and yaa i have to agree with u guys, it keeps my skin moisture all day long. But i only use it when im at home. i would like to know is it OK if i use it like under hot sun? Im kinda curious since one of my frend tends to get skin problem when she uses lotion (NIVEA; 2b specific) on hot sunny day. Her skin started to change like a snake skin and it became so dry,or i should called it as ECZEMA. Can anyone help me clarify that ROSKEN Dry Skin Cream can be used under hot sunny day? Thanks

  12. Hi Shea! Sorry to hear about your friend's case! I didn't experience anything like that. However, everybody's skin is different, so i can't say for sure that it won't cause any reaction for your skin.

    Don't forget sunscreen if you're going under the sun! ;)

  15. I am a constant lotion user, always trying to keep my skin feeling smooth and looking healthy. I get a lot of dryness, especially in the winter. I found the Made from Earth Aloe & jojoba Therapy body lotion to be the best for my dry skin - it absorbs well, and doesn't smell to strong. And its super gentle yet moisturizing.

    Im natural and healthy, so I like that the brand doesn't put any chemicals in their products and they do not test on animals.
