Welcome back to my blog! I have sensitive & combination skin which is oily on my T – zone and is dry around my mouth area. So whenever I use cleansers which combat my oily T-zone, it results in dry patches around my mouth and cheeks. It is quite difficult to deal with my sensitive skin and I don’t experiment with many cleansers. But when I came across Dermavive Hydra Cleanser, I was impressed that it has oatmeal and helps in balancing the skin’s PH level.
Dermavive is owned by UAS pharmaceuticals which is an origin of Australia. Their products are now available in India on leading online portals such as Amazon and Flipkart.
History of Dermavive Range
Oatmeal has been used for centuries and has even been traced back as far as 2000 BC. Usage of oatmeal by Arabian and Egyptians for beauty purposes and Greeks and Romans for healing purposes was a common practice. This inspired the introduction of the Dermavive range of products.
Goodness of Oatmeal for Skin
The cleanser is packed in a sturdy plastic tube with flip cap. The quality of the packaging is good and is leak proof and travel friendly. It has an outer cardboard packaging which has the product details such as ingredients, product description and claims.
A unique preparation combining the multi-action properties of Natural Colloidal Oatmeal to protect the stripping of essential oils & hydrate the skin, while eliminating excess sebum, dirt and other particles. It is enriched with Sodium PCA & other emollients having moisturising properties to soften & soothe the skin. A natural pH balanced soap-free cleanser providing protection against irritation of sensitive skin.
INR 800 for 120 ml
First of all, I was impressed by the simple and good quality packaging. It can be carried in your bag without worrying about spillage. The consistency of the cleanser is not thick and quite runny. It is transparent with a hint of the natural colour of oatmeal and has the fragrance of the same. Though it has a natural fragrance, it is quite strong for my sensitive nose. It lathers the right amount and a little amount of the cleanser is enough for one use.
It is gentle on the skin but removes dirt and excess oil effectively. The best part about this cleanser is that, it doesn’t strip off the natural oil and keeps the skin soft and fresh. My skin looks oil free for about 4 to 4.5 hours after which my oily T-zone gets slightly oily. It has a soothing effect on acne and didn’t break out my skin. As it is SLS and Paraben free, it is safe to use.
Overall, this cleanser is easily one of my favorite cleansers but it is on the expensive side. Nevertheless, it is a product that lives true to its claims!
