I’ve always suffered with eczema, it mostly comes and goes in bad patches, but sometimes it’s been really painful. When I was a teenager it was particularly bad, I tried thousands of steroid creams, and antibiotics, but something I’ve always come back to is E45 cream. Nothing seems to fix my dry skin without irritating it further like E45’s moisturising lotion. It’s actually been a while since I’ve used E45 as my skin hasn’t been playing up as much lately, and I’ve found my Body Shop Body Butters have been doing the job. But E45 kindly sent me a sample of their Moisturising Lotion and Overnight Hand Cream, and it’s reminded me how well their products work for me all over again.
E45’s Moisturising Lotion is something everyone with dry skin should be keeping a bottle of handy. Every time my skin has flared up over the last 20 odd years I’ve been turning to this, and after a few days of applying it regularly, my bad patches seem to clear up. I haven’t used any for a while as my skin hasn’t been too bad, so I decided to start using it as my everyday body lotion to see if made much difference to my skin when it’s not going through a bad time. After a few days of application I noticed my legs felt a lot smoother than they usually do, and my skin felt more hydrated than usual. E45’s moisturising lotion is also perfume free, so there’s no scent attached to it, which is ideal if you don’t want to go around smelling like the Body Shop etc, all day.
E45 also have a new Repair & Protect Overnight Hand Cream, which is great for everyone, not just those with dry skin conditions. As the weather’s still a little on the cold side I’ve found that my hands feel really dry, and I’ve been carrying around hand cream with me all day. I’ve been applying this just before I go to bed as an intensive treatment, and by the time I wake up my hands feel super smooth. This is the sort of product that I probably would have looked over, as I’ve always thought of E45 being for my eczema. Fancy trying your own set of E45’s Moisturising Lotion and Overnight Hand Cream?
