This is the lotion:
Ingredients (taken directly from the back of the bottle): Water (Aqua), Glycerin, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Dimethicone 2.5% W/W, Mineral Oil, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Cetearyl Sulfate, Methylparaben 0.25%, Imidazolidinyl Urea 0.20% W/W, BHT, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance (Parfum), Propylparaben 0.10% W/W.
*[Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) is known to be one of the cancer causing agent by many consumers. Many are confused whether it is the actual cause or not, however, according to the study by Dr. Mercola, SLS is the gradual, cumulative effects of long-term, repeated exposures that are the real concern! (As summarize and taken from online).
What item claims to do: Cream formulation is suitable for very dry and damaged skin. It is pH balanced, which means that it is suitable to be used on the body, hands and face. [I have only tried applying this on my hands and foot; never on my face yet as I do not think my skin is deprived of moisture to that level. Have you tried it before?]
It is clinically proven to:
-significantly increase moisture levels from first application.
-double skin moisture levels in just 4 days.
-help skin retain its moisture from first application.
[I agree with ALL three points mentioned]
How-to: Massage into skin every morning and night after showering or whenever the skin feels dry.
Texture: Rich/Concentrate/Heavy as compared to Enchanteur's lotion. [Rating: 4/5; I immediately think of this phrase, "A little goes a long way."]
Fragrance: I think it contains a light scent of olive oil or something oily in a way. Just can't recall the right word right now. [Rating: 3/5]
Absorption: Great absorption however it requires a much longer time for it to be fully absorbed into the skin. The Olive Oil Extract contains natural antioxidant which helps in the regeneration of the skin tissue and also in regulation the natural moisturising system of the skin. Dimethicone helps to soften the skin by filling in tiny gaps between skin cells. It then forms a protective layer to lock in essential moisture. [Rating: 3/5]
Due to the findings about the accumulating effects of SLS to our body, I would advise to not use Rosken's Dry Skin Cream lotion that often and only use when your skin really needs that intensive moisture. In my stand, I would only go for Rosken's when my heels is dry. Basically I would apply a rather thick layer of the Rosken lotion and wear a sock overnight to obtain baby soft foot the following morning. ^^
