Skin Type : Dry/ Dehydrated
Today, I will review my favourite skin moisturiser, Redwin Sorbolene Moisturiser. Actually, I have been using this moisturiser for more than one year but I had not had an opportunity to write the review. And now, here’s the review!
Previously, I had tried a variety of skin moisturising products, from Vaseline, Jergens, to the Body Shop. But they did not work well on my skin since I had a very dry skin type (almost dehydrated), that even looked completely scaly at certain periods.
One day, I finally chose a moisturiser from Redwin brand after exploring and surfing for a long time on Google. This brand is reputedly well-known as the No.1 Sorbolene moisturiser in Australia and often recommended by many Australian dermatologists to heal very dry skin, rough, scaly, and other skin problems. Based on the explanation on the bottle, the Redwin is claimed can be used for the most sensitive skin, even for newborn baby skin.
This Sorbolene moisturiser is regarded as a simple moisturiser. It means this moisturiser is not added by any artificial coloring, fragrances, parabens, and artificial additives.
My highlights are: highly regarded for very dry and scaly skin conditions, safe for sensitive baby skin (it means safe for adult skin like my skin), and paraben free.
Furthermore, the complete ingredients are Water (Aqua), Glycerin, Sorbitol, Stearic Acid, Mineral Oil (Paraffinum Liquidum), Cetearyl Alcohol, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ Oil, Triethanolamine, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Chloroacetamide, p-Chloro-m-Cresol, Sodium Benzoate, Linalool. Contains Chloroacetamide.
This moisturiser has also obtained Halal certification from the Australian Federation of Islamic Council, which can be seen at the bottom back of the bottle.
This product uses a pump bottle so that its hygiene is well maintained. This lotion has a very thick texture in white color with a very faint scent. There is almost no smell if you do not smell it near your nose. I cannot describe the scent, but it is obviously not a fragrance. This lotion is very economical in use due to the very thick texture. In addition, it contains 500 ml of lotions per bottle so that it can be used for months without having to worry about running out quickly.
This product directly absorbs when it is first time applied on my skin (it is probably due to my very dry skin) and makes my skin feel moist directly. In my opinion, for my dry skin, I need twice applications. In the second application, my dry skin texture completely disappears at all. My skin looks healthy, very moist, slightly glowing, and the moisten effect is very durable even after washing hands/feet (with water only, no soap). I only need twice applications a day in the morning and evening when I am not in the air-conditioned room. But I need 3 – 4 times applications a day when I am in the air-conditioned room.
Believe it or not (or this is about my feeling only), after a few months of using this lotion, I felt my skin looked a little bit brighter. Whereas, based on the product explanation, this lotion is not for brightening skin purposes. And present, after more than one year of using this lotion, indeed, my skin tone increases, brighter (but not white). Furthermore, even though I sometimes do not apply this lotion all day, my skin is still moist, not dry and dehydrated like before taking this lotion.
This favourite Redwin has also multipurpose benefits for me. I sometimes use it as an emergency facial cleanser. I sometimes also mix it with shampoo when I am running out of conditioner, and it works well for me (make my hair and scalp feel moist enough).
Here is the before and after pictures. The before picture is not the picture of two years ago, before I use Redwin (I did not take the picture since I did not think I will be writing a review). The before picture I mean is the bare skin picture before applying the Redwin lotion. The after picture is the picture about 2 minutes after the second application of the Redwin lotion.
Important Notifications : This review is purely based on my personal experience, so it cannot be generalized that the result will be the same for every person. Because the product that is suitable for me is not necessarily suitable for others. The result will depend on the conditions of each skin, consistency of usage, environmental conditions, and activities. So that this review cannot be used as a benchmark. – (MirnaAulia.com)
