          Lactocalamine brings magic to our skin whatever type or problem it may be. It saved from severe skin ailment 40 years back within a couple of days.

  2. i too use it in winters.my doctor father permits me to use only this product. he says that LC has calamine in it which is medically beneficial for skin.

      1. I never used this product though I could c on my mama’s table while going Colg I c every morning but I dont apply thinking tht if I use will my face become dull or some other.. I start imagining my face lol how it could be good/bad

  3. Wow such a nostalgic feel Iam having after reading this post. Was using LC back in my college days..will definetly get a bottle now. Never knew there are so many varied use of this magic potion. As always great write-up and beautiful+detailed presentation :-*

  4. Yes Ruhee..it reminds me of my scooty rides back from college and on the way use to pick this lotion as I didn’t used any other lotion those days.!! you got me down the memory lane sweety..! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    1. yes yaar I was also a proud owner of Dark green colored Scooty those days….my most prized possession….gone are the days no…I enjoyed chaat and paani puris without even a second thought…and my weight was also like never crossed that 48 kgs mark back then..it is the thing which i miss the most πŸ™ now a dayswhat to talk about food?even every single breath i take add sum thing to my ever increasing wt πŸ˜€

        those days we never worried about weight and all..
        now we have become more conscious about food and its affects on beauty & health πŸ˜‰ :-p

  5. I so love this product. i have been using since 2007 and still is on. i have combination of oily & dry skin. and an avid user of Purple LACTO CALAMINE.. i think i vl take only lacto calamine cream as a dowry in my wedding.. heeeeh πŸ˜€

    1. after applying lc my pimples dry..dats gud for meh….BT d prblm is my face feels driness…wt to do..which lc is gud for me….

      1. I too observed the same.. I apply my face moisturiser first and then Lacto … Works very well for me πŸ™‚

  6. I love this product .. I’ve started using it since a year and in love with it !!! I apply it after moisturizing my face with another cream as it alone dries up my skin… But sole purpose of it is to keep those nasty acnes at bay !! And yes, as a bonus it brightened my face πŸ˜‰

  7. I have got lots ofpigmentations on my face and neck after delivery. Its awful my face looks horrible with this black mask. I tried BB creams ..scrubs …nothing works….do you think LC will work? I have oily skin and a very sensitive one too !”

    Please do reply and help me …..mail me if you please !! Great article though !

  8. This is not a lotion, it is a magic potion. I have seen it work wonders on my mother who is a cancer patient. Radiation therapy had burnt her face and neck and she was suffering deep blisters and severs burns on face and neck. Doctor did not allow me to put anything on the wounds (not even boroline) he said just apply a thick coat of LactoCalamine. I was worried for my mom as to how a cosmetic would cure her burns. But I was so wrong, about one and a half weeks of application and the wounds magically disappeared leaving behind a super soft baby sking with improved texture and colour. LC is my fav beauty product now and is a permanent in my pouch, too. Use it to believe it.

  9. I have used lacto calamine lotion from the age of 16. A company called Crookes used to supply it, then it went to a German company. For some years now I haven’t been able to purchase it over the counter in European countries??? Instead I order directly from India. However, now living in Spain and having received my parcels here, this time it was kept in Madrid and I believe they have now returned it to the Emporium. I did everything they asked re identification, copy of the invoice so no idea what has gone wrong. I am lost without it having used it for some 54 years now….

  10. Cn i use tis loution…in my hand nd leg feet…bez i got sunbun..in my hand nd leg feet…so any one cn rply me…wt i do..??
    Nd tis summer seasn…which one i ill use…green or pink…lc loution…???

  11. I got a severe reaction of night cream and have stopped using that product and applying calamine everyday at night. i got some acne and severe scars on my cheek. My wedding is in 4 months will the marks go away if i continue to use it at night??

  12. SO grateful to have found this product it saved my skin from acne… Absolutely in love with it, I use it daily after washing my face as I don’t wear makeup at all unless I am going somewhere special.

  13. Experience of using this lotion is good. but it doesn’t helps in reducing scars.

    I have used Lacto Calamine lotion green – Oil control with Kaolin & Aloe Vera then I came across other green – Hydration with Kaolin & Aloe Vera & used that also, but I found that both are same . I compared their ingredients n those were also exactly same so I am confused and thinking that if everything is same in it then on what basis they have presented it as for Oil Control or for Hydration.

  14. hii dear i just want to know that LC makes skin fair too or not bcs i ma using it since last week …

    pls reply me too.
