Dermocalm Lotion Glaxosmithkline Review

Hey friends!

How are you all doing?

The summers are right around the corner and people with super sensitive skin like mine will actually understand what the sun and heat does to your skin. I need to take a lot of precautions in summers and there are a few products that I really keep close.

I am going to be reviewing one of the products from my summer’s essential list for you guys today. This works great for me and I really wish this review would help you too. Basically during the summers I tend to get a lot of allergies and skin irritations. I need something soothing that would keep the allergies cool and treat them too.

This one is called the Dermocalm Lotion and it is manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline. It is basically a calamine and light liquid paraffin lotion.

Skin Type

Dermocalm Lotion is specifically made for dry and itchy skin, but because I have none and still love the way it helps my skin stay cool and sooth during the makes me believe that it will be pretty much beneficial for all skin types. Even for oily skin. 


The packaging for Dermocalm Lotion is simple and to the point. It comes in a white and light pink colored bottle. Has a flap cover on top which stops it for spilling.

The packaging is sturdy as well as travel friendly. I carry it in my bag all the time.

Dermocalm Lotion is a little thick in consistency (takes a little time to get absorbed by your skin too). It is light pink in color and smells really soft. The fragrance is very light and mild and doesn’t bother you at all on the contrary you might even like it. I know I do.

My Experience with Dermocalm Lotion

I am really thankful to the doctor who recommended me this cream for my summer allergies. It is efficient and keeps my skin cool and sooth.



Whether I would recommend this product again:

I most definitely would. My skin really suffers in the heat and I would practically do anything to stay off that. This lotion has been my saving grace. I use it in the summer all the time regardless of the fact that I have allergies or not .I would totally recommend it.
