(Event) (Review) Linola Dry Skin Workshop

Hi Lovelies, today's content will be especially curated for people with dry, rough, cracked & sensitive skin(me!!!)

I personally am someone with quite dry limbs (including my hands too) as well as rough & mildly chipped calluses on my heel and side of my feet. 

I remember I tried various lotion. They do not help EXCEPT for the L'occitane foot cream that works like magic. It however is quite expensive so I only specifically use it for my cracked and bleeding feet last time.

So do you wanna hear my thoughts on how the Linola product fares on my "quite dry limbs, dry hands and rough & chipped calluses" on my heel and side of my feet? (It'll be at the most bottom!)

About Linola:
Linola is a well-loved pharmaceutical skincare range developed by Dr. August Wolff in Germany since 1957.
The company is a family run business with his son, Dr. Kurt Wolff in the cosmetic division while Dr. August Wolff himself in the medical division.
Linola simply means - the one with linoleic acid (its the key ingredient!).
Linola is wholly formulated and produced in Germany.
Dr. Wolff products are now available in more than 50 international markets.
Linola is exclusively available in Caring Pharmacy nationwide :)
It claims to be a super hero to users with troubled skin!
Its #1 in Germany under the best supportive medical care category for all types of dry skin for two years consecutively (2012 & 2013).

FYI, linoleic acid is not physiologically synthesized (not produced by our own body) & needs to be replaced externally.

Example of products with high content of linoleic acid:
Thistle Oil (79%)
Sunflower Oil (74%)
Rapeseed Oil (30%)

How dry skin is triggered:
Frequent shower.
Hot water used is more that 32 degrees.
Extensive use of soap/cleanser (especially alkaline ones).
Extreme temperatures (too hot coz using central heating / too cold coz using air conditioner).
Season (wind, sun, etc).
Aging skin.
Chronic  mechanical irritation.
Frequent travel.

Who need Linola:
For all types of dry skin.
For chronic and acute atopic eczema sufferers
To improve specific skin problems eg dry, itchy scalp, psoriasis, & chafing.

Result of a Study:
2 weeks of daily Linola Lotion application leads to increased skin hydration 103% & water loss reduced by 3%

Mini Review:
I wanna thank you Everquest and Nuvanta for the Linola Dry Skin Workshop by Dr. Wolff-Gruppe GmbH. Totally informative for me! Since it is a specific & medicated product, all ages can use as long as they are approved by your doctor!

On the overall, prices and contents of product are affordable. I got Linola Hand, Linola Lotion & Linola Shower and Wash. Packaging is simple and informative so you won't use it wrongly.

Linola Hand is of a matte packaging, love it! The Linola Lotion is of a normal shiny packaging, such a big tube!

The Linola Hand (75ml) is only RM35. It comes in a white tube and matte blue cap. Product is easily dispensed, portable and hygeinic. It is a Oil-in-Water emulsion, contains vegetable oil, free from urea (thus suitable for sensitive skin), preservatives, silicones and mineral oils.. The application is slightly watery but does not feel heavy and is quickly absorbed into the skin. It is surprisingly not sticky or oily, for me. Overnight, my hands are still very moisturized. It has a mild buttery scent.

The Linola Lotion (200ml) cost RM79. It is of a similar tube but the cap is not matte. It is a Water-in-Oil emulsion, contains vegetable oil, free from mineral oils and silicone, suitable for dry & eczema-prone skin. The application is more watery than the Linola Hand but richer and forms a layer of slight stickiness barrier on the skin. After sometime, it is less sticy but you can see the glossiness on the applied area and feel that layer is there. It has a slightly more sweet and perfumey scent which I like.

Look at the dispensing cap for the Linola Shower & Wash. Any of you know what it do?

The Linola Shower & Wash (300ml) cost RM69. It is of a white sturdy body with a lid where you flip open. I think this kind of lid reduces spillage and lets you control the amount you dispense. It is of clear microemulsion-gel, contains vegetable oil, skin friendly pH of 5.5, does not burn the eyes, and free from mineral oils and parabens. It smells of sweet body wash scent. After mixing with water it lathers easily but with little bubbles & smells like baby powder. Upon wash off and pat dry, skin feels gentle and not as drying, also, I smell so nice, lol.

Love your skin, try Linola!
Thanks for saving my skin Linola!

Just wanna appreciate the cute little figurines of Lino!
