A face wash is an essential part of every skincare routine, no matter how elaborate or simple. However, those with sensitive skin often find it hard to find a face wash that does not irritate their skin. To resolve this dilemma, I will be reviewing the Dermavive Hydra Cleanser today, which is specifically formulated for sensitive skin. Here is why this face wash is perfect for sensitive skin-
About the Brand – Dermavive products are specifically formulated for dry, itchy and irritated skin. It contains natural colloidal oatmeal which is a scientifically proven ingredient and provides many beneficial features to manage and treat dry skin conditions. It restores the normal pH balance of the skin and maintains the natural acidity of the skin, thereby protecting against dryness. It also works as a skin protectant and enhances the barrier of the skin. As these products are used in managing and treating people with dry skin problems, there is no fragrance added and the odour is the natural odour of the colloidal oatmeal.
Enriched with the goodness of oatmeal, a skincare ingredient so potent yet mild that it is even a part of several home remedies to treat rashes on an infant’s skin, this face wash is in the form of a transparent gel with a mild, natural fragrance and a gentle lather. The formula is soap-free and pH balanced and thoroughly cleanses the skin without stripping its natural oils. This for me is an ideal AM cleanser because it removes the excess sebum from the face while retaining the morning glow and the softness of the skin. It does not stretch out the skin at all and does not exaggerate any dry patches on the face. In fact, it has a gently hydrating action that makes the skin plump without making it greasy. It also removes non-waterproof makeup very easily and is suitable for oily and acne-prone skin too as it cleans out the pores really well.
Overall, the Dermavive Hydra Cleanser is an excellent face wash for those whose skin is prone to redness and dryness post using a facial cleanser. It is suitable for all skin types, from dry skin to oily, dehydrated skin. I love the unique baby-like softness that it imparts to my face after I use it in the mornings and the natural glow that it provides to my skin. Priced at INR 800 for a 120ml tube, this product may seem a little expensive but the mild formula and sturdy packaging make it a winner for me. So do grab your own pack from Amazon India and let me know how it works for you!
Some skincare ingredients are so amazingly effective that they have stood the test of time and have managed to retain a spot in skincare recipes ranging from age-old grandma’s concoctions to modern pharmaceutical skincare ranges. Oatmeal is one such ingredient that is known to be extremely gentle yet excellent at relieving the skin from irritation and itchiness caused by rashes, allergic reactions, and other skin conditions. In fact, it is so gentle and effective that oatmeal baths are even recommended for infants suffering from skin infections. Dermavive, an Australian brand that has recently launched in India, utilizes this time-tested ingredient in the Dermavive Moisturising Lotion that contains Natural Colloidal Oatmeal. The brand sent me the product to review a few days back and here is my review of this moisturising lotion.
The Dermavive Moisturising Lotion has Natural Colloidal Oatmeal as its star ingredient. As I mentioned before, oatmeal is a scientifically proven skincare ingredient that helps to maintain the natural pH balance or acidity of the skin, reduces dryness, and creates a protective barrier on the skin. Therefore, this lotion is particularly suitable for those with dry, sensitive and irritated skin although it can benefit those with all skin types. The lotion has a thick texture but spreads easily on the skin and sinks in within seconds without leaving a white cast. It does not leave any greasy feeling on the skin but still provides intense hydration that lasts for hours and makes my skin feel super soft and smooth.
Since this product is meant for irritated skin, the brand has not added any artificial fragrance in the lotion. It has a mild natural scent that does not linger on the skin post application. The finish that this lotion leaves on the skin is really impressive, it does not feel like you have applied anything on the skin yet the skin feels really supple and hydrated. Also, the product helped to calm down a few rashes I had developed on my arms due to wearing some artificial jewellery, hence it does live up to its claims of relieving irritated skin. Even though this product is specifically targeted towards dry and irritated skin, its non-greasy texture, intense hydration and mild and light-weight formula make it perfect for all skin types. In fact, the brand claims that this product can be used on children and babies as well.
The Dermavive Moisturising Lotion with Natural Colloidal Oatmeal is currently available on Amazon and Flipkart in India and is priced at INR 800 for a 120ml tube that is travel-friendly and comes with a flip lid. The price may seem a little steep but trust me, it is an excellent investment if you suffer from recurring skin issues and most skincare products don’t suit your skin. Overall, I am really enjoying using this product and would highly recommend it to all of you. No matter what your skin type, regular usage of this lotion will definitely improve the texture and look of your skin. So do give it a try and let me know your thoughts about this moisturising lotion.
