Curel Rough Skin Rescue Smoothing Lotion for Dry, Flaky Skin : Review, Photos, Swatch

I do not have any major skin concerns other than my super dry skin. I need to regularly moisturise my skin irrespective of whether I have the time for it or not. The day I skip my moisturiser, the same night my skin looks all flaky with white patches. Curel Daily Moisturiser really helped me in the past and this Rough Skin Rescue was more promising that I had to pick one for myself. Thank You Rads for reviewing this in your blog, it did help me a lot. 

Curel Rough Skin Rescue Smoothing Lotion


The Curel Rough Skin Rescue Smoothing Lotion comes in a huge 591 ml bottle with a pump dispenser. I prefer my moisturisers to come in a pump dispenser as it is more easy and hygienic to use. The lotion isn't very thick that gets absorbed by the skin quickly. Skin feels super nourished and moisturised for the entire day. The lotion claims to work even on psoriasis and keratosis pilaris. The lotion contains AHA which claims to exfoliate the skin and that is an added advantage to treat dry skin. However, the presence of AHA makes the skin sensitive to sun’s rays and might cause sunburn too ! It is advised to take proper sun protection while using this product. My skin isn't very sensitive, yet I make sure I apply this only during the nights and cover my skin completely for the next couple of weeks to avoid any sun damage. If you have sensitive skin or if you aren’t too sure, it is highly recommended to do a patch test before buying this product.

This is an amazing product for people with extremely dry skin and especially who stay indoors most of the time. If you are exposed to sun most of the time, then I recommend you not to try this lotion. Blame the AHA, but the same ingredient helps in mild exfoliation that I have never experienced in any other body lotion ! I would call this a one stop solution for my super dry skin.
