My Experience With Dermadew Aloe Lotion:
The lotion comes in a white plushy tube with a white plastic screw cap. The mouth has a small opening which is effective to bring out the lotion as required. Overall, I found the packaging was decent and proper for traveling. The lotion is white a color with a semi-runny consistency. The texture is light and velvety smooth on the skin. The smell is very soothing. It has the blend of aloe vera and milk with a slight chemical whiff which won't bother your nose at all. I wouldn't call the smell very refreshing, but it is soothing and calming. There is also a faint touch of menthol when applied on the skin, but it only lasts for half an hour or so. Whenever I apply it on the affected areas, it gives a gentle sensation which is quite relaxing to the inflamed skin.
As I have mentioned before, my skin right now is extremely sensitive to any kind of creams, lotion or even liquid soaps. However, this has been an exception truly. It calms the itchiness and burning sensation to a large extent. The lotion has the goodness of aloe vera and glycerin with various medicinal components which work great with complicated skin. It thoroughly moisturizes the skin and makes it soft, supple and nourished. Normally, my hands and legs remain dry in winter but this time I have noticed that they have become extremely patchy and sensitive. It looses the moisture within 4-5 hours and I feel the need to apply the cream after 6 hours or so.
Sometimes, I also apply the cream on my face and it gets absorbed very easily, leaving the skin nourished and moisturized for quite a long duration of 8-9 hours which I feel is pretty good. It never broke me out and instead gave a soothing feeling. There are certain drawbacks of this lotion as well. Firstly, it lacks SPF and, therefore, the sensitive skin gets slightly itchy and irritated when exposed to the sun rays. Secondly, for a medicinal lotion I was shocked to find out that it has parabens. Apart from these, the lotion has been life-saving for my skin this winter. Some might say it is costly, but it is worth spending the money.

The lotion is slightly expensive for a drugstore product, but it truly works like a wonder for dry sensitive skin with rashes, burns and allergies. I would highly recommend this if you have complex skin to deal with.
