Moisturex Emollient, Humectant and Keratolytic Cream {Product Review}

Ok, so this is something new for most of you, if not all. I wanted to talk about the cream which my mom has been using faithfully since the past 15 years and which keeps her skin fabulous. And, I have been using this cream for the past 15-20 days and I thought it would be good to share this product with you all as it is a perfect moisturizer for winters.

Price: Rs 200 for 75gms (I am guessing but it should be around that)


My Experience

Moisturex is recommended for the above skin problems
It is a medicated cream and had been recommended by a doctor to my mom (don’t remember for what reason but my stuck to it coz it suited her). Now, a little bit about the cream. It is a thin consistency cream but its very very moisturizing so I would recommend it only for dry skin and mature skin and those who live in colder climates. It makes the skin oily when in humid or tropical climate. So, I am using it now a days to combat the weather and protect my skin.
And, this cream is awesome. It keeps my skin moisturized the entire day and keeps it looking supple and hydrated. This is something which I have never seen any other moisturizer do. To some extent, I’ll give Liz Earle moisturizer a benefit of doubt but otherwise, it is great!!! And, not very expensive either. And, it lasts ages, trust me!!! Since its so creamy, you need to apply a very very thin layer and I apply it in dots and rub it into the skin. If applied properly, it also makes the skin appear a little dewy and it doesn’t let the skin dry out at all so if you are suffering from broken skin or extremely dry patches, this is a cream which you should give a try.
Regarding my mom’s skin, her skin still looks flawless and its supple and so soft, seriously coz this cream makes the skin extremely soft. I think the credit of that goes to the ingredients – lactic acid and urea, both of which are supposed to be great for skin. So, give it a try :)
My Recommendation
I would definitely ask you to give it a try. Would be especially great for mature skin.

    hi i have been looking for a cream like this for ever( i have super dry skin all over my body n face)so i want to know is it a face, hand, foot or bdy cream? and also u have mentioned that you mom has beeing using it for the past 15 years? does she use it on her face or sumwhere else and how often and what time day or night?,.the reason iam askin you is coz it contains lactic acid (AHA) and which might increase skins sensitivity to sunlight. and do you know of any body wash or facewash with similiar composition?

      hey Hasini…your name reminded me of Bomarillu…don’t know if you know about the movie :)
      you actually put out the point I had been thinking since long a time!!! she uses it only on face and neck. yes, even, I thought that repeated usage of lactic acid (especially at 10% concentration) can make her skin sensitive but she doesn’t get any sunburns and she didn’t really tan more over the years!!! yes, her face does get red when she goes out but that was there even before. so, I really have no idea how to judge if it has increased the sensitivity?
      I was actually planning to do a post on the same issue but then, got lazy and left it pending!!!
      but, I think the cream can be used at nights. it does make the skin very soft :)

    Is the price hiked soon? Now it is rs135 for 50gm. Earlier it was rs101 for 100gm. That means around 170% price hike. Can we get in old container with low price? Is that still available?

    yes its pretty expensive but instead of buying nivea, dove and similar cosmetic brands , this moisturizer really works and what a pride, its indian …medicated moisturizers from abroad are very expensive. this has a slightly gritty texture . i got a bottle a pout..similar to the olay 7 effects bottle. i would prefer a tin like this one ..,but don’t seem to find it…

    but being someone who suffers from flaky dry psoriasis i would really recommend this one.

    would like someone to compare this to cetaphil lotion that i havent tried either.

    There is another cream known as ‘Healax Cream’ made by Gary Pharmaceuticals of Ludhiana should be available in the market. I just saw it on the net and hence mentioning it here. But, I dont know about its effectiveness like Moisturex as I have not used it so far. I was also looking for alternatives as Moisturex has become expensive.

    I have been using these product since last 12yrs i love the old package it used to come,but the new package design has faulty i bought a 75gm bottle designed pack which eariler used to cost under 100rs,
    Unfortunately the new design have Rubber press type thing by pressing it we get the cream out,after normal use of 15days my family discovered there was no cream coming out of it & were surprised to see it finished so far,but when i opened the top mechanism i discovered that rubber was broken & there was more than 50% of the cream left.

    please make the design fault changes :)

    Doctor suggested me to use SaBa Med cleansing shower oil instead of soap for dry skin and use Moisturex cream after shower. Can I apply Moisturex soft cream on face as well?

    I hv been using this cream for my son when he was an infant for rashes he used get in winter. It’s an awesome cream. Highly recommended for dry skin.

    Hi, my hands had scaly psoriasis and was paining badly. Upon applying this on my fingers the dryness has reduced and the pain subsided. Great cream for cracked heals and dry skin. Price?? 190Rs for 100gm but you will not regret what you paid for. Go for it.

    I have bought this cream for my dry skin today. so what about the usage? how and when should I apply it? Should I wash it after applying to my skin?

    Hi, I stay in a humid climate and my Dr has advised this cream for hard skin in my foot, does it work in foot also. thanks

    Dear Respective,

    My son has skin problem and I tried a lot to cure that but failed. Finally after six years, one of the best Doctors who is really professional in his field prescribed The Moisturex Lotion for my son, and we found out that this lotion is the really remedy for his treatment after one week usage.
    The point is that, I can’t find more here in Afghanistan and I really need it.
    So, if anyone of you knows about the supplies of this lotion in Afghanistan then plz contact me via or +93782630099.

      hi Shweta. sorry but can not comment as she is naturally fair and we honestly do not believe in skin lightening products. love your skin as is and take care of your skin so it always is bright and glowing :)
