Eczema and dermatitis are two skin conditions that have effected me and my loved ones over the years. So many of the products that I have used in the past have been so harsh causing stinging, drying of the skin or even causing the skin to thin and bleed. Even products targeted at children have proven to be too harsh and unpleasant to use regularly. Recently we've started experimenting with natural products such as coconut oil, avoiding the nasty harsh products. So when I was offered the chance to try the Skinfix products, I was impressed to see that they shared my philosophy on harnessing the healing power of natural ingredients such as aloe vera, chamomile, jojoba, shea, oatmeal and my trusted coconut oil. They avoid using parabens, fragrance, alcohol, acids, phthalates, sulfates and other nasties. So I was happy to give them a try. The recipes used are based on a century old family concoction for treating chronic dry skin conditions resulting in beautiful, healthy skin. We received the Eczema Balm and the Soothing Lotion to try out.
Skinfix Eczema Balm (60 g/£14.99) is for adults and children aged 2+. This concentrated and targeted natural healing balm is effective at treating and managing eczema, dermatitis and other dry skin conditions. It works fast to create a barrier on the skin to help lock in moisture and keep irritants out. This rich, 0% water and preservative free formula uses shea butter, coconut, jojoba and sweet almond oils to soothe and soften skin. A natural alternative or complement to prescription medication and topical steroid treatments.
The balm is very dense with the texture of a thick petroloeum jelly and is fragrance free. It melts into the skin and is absorbed leaving a soothing residue. I have dermatitis on my hands, which is triggered by the cold weather or from using cleaning products. It felt so rich and nourishing smoothing the balm into my hands. It also acts as a barrier against irritants. Kezia gets eczema on her face and the balm was gentle enough to use on her delicate facial skin. It soothed and moisturised the dry, sore patches. This balm is great for patches of dry skin but can also be used for other things such as lip balm, on scars or on the feet. It's a great all round, must-have balm that will be an invaluable addition to the bathroom cabinet for treating and managing dry skin conditions.
Skinfix Soothing Lotion for dry, sensitive, eczema-prone skin (370 ml/£17.99) Body lotions can be too irritating for chronically sensitive or eczema prone skin. Skinfix Soothing Lotion is a lightweight, yet deeply moisturising daily body lotion with colloidal oatmeal, natural emollient oils of coconut and jojoba to help hydrate, soothe and protect skin.
This body lotion is great for every day use to keep skin hydrated and protected. It's light but feels rich and creamy when rubbed into the skin. Perfect for using after showering, it keeps skin feeling smooth, soft and hydrated. It is made of 98% natural ingredients and is fragrance free, making it safe for long term use, helping prevent flare ups.
The Skinfix products are available now in Boots stores and online. A Soothing Wash and Hand Repair Cream are also available.
