Review : Esemtan Skin Balm

Having sensitive and dry skin is quite sad because most lotions may kinda irritation skin. It itches a bit but doesn't cause any major issue... still it's really very comfortable for going thru the experiences.

 Esemtan Skin Balm is suitable for all skin types, especially dehydrated, dry & sensitive skin

Esemtan Skin Balm
Esemtan skin balm provides the skin with oil and moisture.
Suitable for daily hand and body care for all skin types, it permeates deeply into the skin with oil-in water emulsion, and supports and cares for the skin to protect it from drying. It is also suitable for children's skin.

  • Absorbs rapidly
  • Contains added urea as a moisturising agent and also to speed up skin cell renewal.
  • Dermatologically tested and helps to reduce skin irritation and itch. 
  • Comes with mild soothing fragrance, to allow users with dry & sensitive skin to enjoy a soothing touch of fragrance.

My body skin texture is totally different my face... my skin can feel sticky and oily very easily, but they are pretty dehydrated! I don't have those Asian smooth soft skin, and they feel quite rough with some tiny bumps (on my arms - like chicken skin). I think I have huge pores and moisturizer/lotion are my best friend so smoother skin. Drinking a lot of water helps... but I love my coffee! Anyway.. I just try to do whatever I can to keep my skin hydrated (as you all may have know, I have eczema and dehydrated skin is not really good for eczema condition!).

And what sad was that I have sensitive skin.. which makes applying lotion a fuss for me... I have to apply right after shower, cannot apply too much and also cannot use those that have a lot of fragrance or high in active ingredients (but some normal products which wasn't meant for sensitive skin and I have no issue with it... my skin is weird~ lolx)

So after trying this esemtan Skin balm for a few weeks.....
I can say, I have no issue with this lotion (^_^)
  • This has a mild clean and fresh scent  (not too strong)
  • Has a lotiony consistency and doesn't feel too thick nor oily
  • Easy to spread all over the skin (but when applying too much, can see a bit of white streaks.. but once you blend the lotion in... skin look fresh and not sticky at all)
  • Quite moisturizing and soothing
  • Skin feel soft and hydrated
  • Does has a bit of oily feel (feels more like wet lotion type of oily but once it fully absorbed... skin feel soft)
  • Doesn't cause irritation when I apply a thin layer all over my legs - thick layer of anything will make my skin feel a little bit itchy.. but that was quite normal for me. (as long as it doesn't cause any redness or rashes)
Overall, this is a very nice and mild lotion for sensitive skin - I enjoy using it at night before I go to bed and waking up with soft hydrated skin.
