My experience
The Caladew lotion is a tube packaging which is a cute pink one. It is very travel friendly packaging as well as size. The lotion is peachy pink in colour with a little more runny consistency. This makes the tube dispense sone extra product as it runs out even without squeezing the tube.
The calamine lotion is very soothing and provides some amounts of coverage to the skin. The colour of the lotion is responsible for this though. The lotion spreads easily on the skin and takes some time to get absorbed in the skin.

The lotion gives an instant cooling and calming effect. Being a calamine lotion it is also supposed to heal itchiness, red spots, prickly heat and the product just effectively does its job.
I have used the lotion on prickly heat affected areas of my body and it has reduced the redness and itchiness over a period of time.
