Years of nursing with latex gloves, constant handwashing with anti-bacterial soap and alcohol gel hand sanitisers had played havoc with my skin. These days it’s knitting wool which plays havoc and I constantly have dry patches on my hands, which whilst not as serious as a major eczema breakout, can be really uncomfortable. I get through hand-cream at an alarming rate, but have to restart the moisturising as soon as I wash my hands again!
Bernard also has some dry skin problems, again not nearly as serious as eczema proper, but small dry patches on her cheek, particularly when she is run down or when the weather is very cold and windy.
So when Dove offer us some of their Pure and Simple Moisturising Cream Bar, we jumped at the chance!
We decided to give it a really extensive test, so we have used nothing else, including shower gel for a week. And I have to say – it’s been a very pleasant experience!
The skin on my hands is better than it has been for a long time, and my hand cream bill is way down! There is no ‘tight’ feeling after I wash my face and the soft creamy lather makes an excellent shower wash!
Bernard would like me to add – not only are the dry patches on her cheek considerable better, but the usual teenage spots have cleared up too and her forehead (a usual problem area) is just about clear of the dreaded scourge!
Even Mr K has commented on how nice it is and has taken a bar to have at work, where he deals with a lot of sawdust and chemicals so needs to be careful to wash regularly but maintain his skins natural integrity.
This week has been National Eczema Week, and if you’re a sufferer – maybe this bar could be part of the answer – it will certainly be a regular on my shopping list from now on!
