Developed a weird red rash
Developed a rash around 15 - 20 minutes after using this product for the first time. I'm possibly allergic to something in it. The rash is not itchy, not pain at this point but rather many red and tiny "pen-dot" sized dots that are spread out. I'm going to wash the moisturiser off now (this could just be me).
Why change a great formula
I have used this product for years and just recently purchased another bottle from my local pharmacy. What have you done to the formula!!! This used to be a rich, creamy product that soaked into the skin. Now it's a watery, slimy cream that sits on top of the skin and basically it's crap. Never buying it again!
Do not use this cream
I received this skin cream from my doctor who said it was better than one I had been given by another doctor, I realized that it was responsible for a rash I developed on my legs where I was using it. at the time I hs a pill change which my doctor thought was causing the rash, so he changed that at the same time. I found out by deduction in the end that it was in fact the cream. ( who would have thought that a cream prescribed by a doctor could cause this to happen) I ended up cionsiderably out of pocket and discomfort through this. zero for review marks. !
Made my skin break out in rashes.
I tried to use this cream to combat eczema on my hands and it made the flare up far worse than it was to begin with. I woke up the morning after applying it with disgusting scabs and puss oozing from my skin. The only place I used this cream was on my hands, forearms and face which all broke out in a rash the next day. It says the cream is suitable for all over the body on even the most sensitive of skin and for skin conditions such as eczema. Would give a 0 star rating if I could.
I have used this creme for several years. Last year I was diagnosed with a rare skin type lymphoma and was experiencing rashes on my arms and legs. I tried an all natural Australian sorbeline and within a week my skin has almost cleared up. Although the lymohona required radiation.
New formula is watered down. Great disappointment.
I have bought Redwin Sorbolene cream for many years. It was an excellent face, body and hand moisturiser for all the family, and I also used it to remove my makeup. My son with excema used it continuously. But it is now so thin and watery that it is difficult and messy to use. I will have to change over to another brand - reluctantly, but I will not support a company that cheapens its product.
Get rid of pimples!
My previous moisturiser was giving me pimples. (I have very oily skin) After changing to Redwin, I no longer get pimples on my face. It is also great for removing eye make up as it doesn't sting your eyes. I use it on the rest of my body and it makes my skin feel incredibly soft.
It used to be a thicker richer cream
I am a long time user of this sorbalene. Sadly, earlier this year I noticed the richness and thickness of the cream had changed markedly. I had a tub I had previously filled with the original redwin sorbalene so was able to compare. and the difference was striking. Hoping it was a "one-off" problem I bought my next bottle and it too was a thin pale example of the original. I've bought a couple more since then and it seems redwin have made the change to a thinner less rich cream from the luxurious cream it once was. I'm now buying a supermarket brand that is not as good as the old redwin but better than the new redwin. Sad
