I hope you are all well. This post is dedicated to all of my eczema suffers out there. For those that suffer, know that the winter is the WORST for this painful skin condition and sometimes it feels like you can’t find relief from anything. I was feeling pretty hopeless last month when my eczema was in full swing and it was affecting my hands the most. I had blisters, redness, swollen fingers and most annoying it itched like crazy!
My dermatologist had me on steroid creams and really said that there was really nothing else he could do and I quite frankly was sick of prescriptions. Because I have such a fabulous mother, she’s a QVC/HSN addict and there was a cream being advertised specifically for eczema and severe dry skin. I was totally skeptical at first, but figured I would give it a try. Here are my thoughts after using First Aid Beauty: Ultra Repair Cream:
- It’s extremely thick, but non greasy. I used it multiple times throughout the day and found my hands were baby bottom soft after putting the cream on. My hands looked greasy but they felt very smooth.
- A little goes a long way. The cream is so thick that all you really need is a dollop for your face, which I applied on the dry spots where my eczema was, then I applied my regime of serum, moisturizer, and eye cream. I pretty much used it as a base. In the past when I put my other creams on, my face would get dry and patchy by mid day, however by using this cream it lasted and moisturized all day. Big plus for me 👍🏾
- One con, is that after I applied on my hands, I rubbed my hands and it seemed like I had flakes of the cream coming off but it could be that I just have to exfoliate better.
- It’s Allergy tested, no Parabens, harsh chemicals or Colorants. This is a huge benefit for me. My skin is EXTREMLY sensitive and I cannot use every product that says “sensitive skin approved” however this product is the real thing and worth it. My skin did burn after initially putting it on but that is normal for eczema suffers since your skin is inflammed.
Overall, I give this product at A- and it’s affordable as well. It was priced for 2 jars at 14. Oz for $43.00 dollars on QVC. Like I mentioned before, a little goes a long way and below I have my before and after pictures. Let know your thoughts!
