Product: REDWIN Sorbolene Moisturiser

Description: As the weather changes and our skin becomes dry and chapped by wind and the onslaught of central heating/cooling in the home and office, Redwin sorbolene moisturising cream is a soothing and cost effective skin saver for moisturising. Sorbolene cream is recommended by dermatologists and medical practitioners as the most effective moisturising cream and suitable in the treatment of skin disorders such as eczema; and it’s even suitable for children’s delicate skin.

It’s also used by some of Australia’s leading plastic surgeons to help burn victims or heal scars after facial surgery. Massage a small amount of Redwin Sorbolene Moisturiser with Vitamin E with plant derived glycerine, into skin paying particular attention to dry or irritable spots such as the backs of knees and elbows. The sorbolene will act as a moisture barrier to restore flexibility and elasticity in the skin and prevent dryness, roughness and flaking during the cooler months .

Size: 100g
Price: $2.60AUS
Availability: Bilo, Coles, Woolworth’s, Big W, Kmart, Priceline and selected pharmacies.
Overall Star Rating:

A fantastic budget moisturiser from Redwin. The formulation of this product is very simple so it is suitable for the sensitive skins. It is also fragrance free, meaning, there is no added perfume in this moisturiser.

This is excellent news for anyone who is experiencing skin irritations and sensitivities as fragrance in cosmetics is a major irritant. This cream also contains Vitamin E, helping prevent dry scaly skin.

I found it great for both my legs and my arms as they are the driest on my body. This cream moisturised my skin excellently, without a greasy residue.

I have purchased this product for myself in the past. This product has fantastic moisturising qualities. I keep it beside the bed to moisturise my hands and arms before going to sleep. The scent of the product is not to my liking but dissipates once you’ve rubbed it in completely. I will keep using it.

The cream, although it is ‘fragrance free’, has a slight medicinal smell to it, which some people might not like. It takes awhile to absorb into the skin when applied. Apart from that, I found it quite moisturising.
My partner had dry elbows so I used this on him, and it definitely improved the condition of his elbows. If you are after a well priced moisturiser that does the job, this is it! I will most definitely buy it again for myself.

To be honest, at first I wasn’t thrilled to receive this product. I have used sorbolene creams before and found them too thin and watery, they disappear into your skin and don’t leave it feeling or looking moisturised. This product however has changed my mind. Thick creamy texture, takes a little extra time to apply but worth it as it leaves your skin soft and moisturised all day with no fragrance that will clash with your perfume. This is terrific value for money, and I would definitely repurchase it for myself.

This product is comparative to all other sorbolene creams on the market. The texture is very thick and like all sorbolene creams, does not absorb into my skin very quickly. I needed to rub and rub. Great for dry skin though, however I would not buy again as I’m not a fan of sorbolene creams. I prefer creams that absorbs into the skin quickly. However it is very well priced!

Excellent moisturiser. It left my skin feeling soft, smooth and moisturised. The smell wasn’t very appealing as it has that typical sorbolene smell. It is excellent value for money. I probably won’t buy it again, not girly enough for me.

    I bought this cream today and used it tonight and found it absorbed well, was rich and creamy but not gunky. I’m usually allergic to most creams with chemicals in it but this one being free of that hasn’t bothered me so, so far so good :)

    I wasn’t sure if I liked it at first ‘cos it can leave your skin feeling a little sticky, but if you use it sparingly its not as bad and does moisturise well. I use it to take my makeup off and it works better than my usual cleanser, so it is a multi-purpose moisturiser at a very reasonable price. I would recommend this and I will buy it again.
