This really is five star hand cream !
on 28 March 2011
I have suffered from eczema since I was a child. Although it has totally cleared up everywhere else, every winter a sore, dry patch develops somewhere on my hands - never in the same place - the cold, dry weather and constant gardening as the weather improves just makes it worse and worse. I've tried every steroid cream, moisturiser etc the doc can prescribe so when a friend gave me this, I didn't dare touch it - usually hand creams make my skin flare up horribly. However, come the summer, my skin was clear again as usual, I was in a hurry and it was the only thing within reach. The feel and smell was so delightful that I kept using it. It was only when relatives came for Christmas that I realised my hands were STILL clear. This hand cream was the only thing I had done differently. Still, I wasn't sure. Two weeks ago, the 50 ml gift tube finally ran out and now I have a small but sore dry patch developing on my left index finger around the end knuckle. I have no medicinal proof but something in this suits the usually unhappy skin on my hands. I am now buying it by the dispenser load! I wish I had known about this twenty years ago! There are tiny tubes available - try it for yourself and see! Use wisely - it's not cheap!
