Reviews for Dermasil Lotion

C · Taken for 5 to 10 years December 21, 2020

“I have used Dermasil lotion, from the Dollar Tree, day and night versions, for years, using most days. Since 2006 have been having VERY bad allergic reactions (very swollen, red, itchy, scaly, peeling DRY, tight skin on my upper eyelids and below! then determined I was allergic to shellac, an ingredient in mascara. But the issue keeps coming back even though I haven't worn mascara in over 5 years! In early December 2020, I FiNALLY stopped using Dermasil, to see what would happen, after a very bad 4 week bout, and magically, in one day of no use, my facial/eye area was almost back to being ME! Will never be using this product again.”

“This lotion says it is Hypo-Allergenic yet one of the ingredients is methyllisothiazolinone, which was voted by the dermalogical society as the number one Allergen of 2013. It is usually used in shampoos and liquid soap but to have it in a lotion in terrible. If you aren't allergic, you may become allergic with continued usage. Beware. This lotion has too much water in it for very dry skin. Go with a cream. The package says to recycle but isn't marked for USA recycling.”

“Applied this product one time and went into anaphylactic shock three hours later after it absorbed into my skin. The product not only gave me severe hives and difficulty breathing, but also gave me chemical burns and blisters that may leave permanent scarring. My doctors said this product could have killed me the reaction was so severe. I contacted Dermasil after seeing 6 doctors and still receiving medical treatment 20 days later, and they could not have cared less.”

“I love this cream! I have extreme dry skin on my body. It itches--terrible. This is the only cream that gives me relief. I apply it daily all over and problem solved!! It's affordable. I get it at the Dollar Store. I wish it smelled a bit better, but I can live with it because it works so well.”

“I give this product a nine--at least. I have excess dry skin on my legs and arms. Sometimes it's so dry that I itch. This lotion is the only thing I have found that actually works and keeps working throughout the day. I apply a nice coat over my legs and arms daily. No more dry skin or itchiness. It's easy to find and affordable. I've even found it in the Dollar Store. I recommend trying it as a body lotion...it really works!!!”

“I love this lotion. My skin was dry on my legs and arms and now after using Dermasil I have softer and smoother skin in those areas. I am really satisfied. It also absorbs easily and leaves no greasy feel.”

“I tried this on my legs tonight for the first time and they are on fire!!!! No recent shave or anything else that would bring such a reaction on. Definitely going in the trash!! I’ve used on my hands before but didn’t notice any improvement in dryness.”

“Inexpensive and worked great until I got contact dermatitis. Sudden red rashes with tiny oozing bumps. Discontinued use and treated and it has never come back.”
