Both my son, who’s two, and I suffer from dry skin with occasional outbreaks of eczema. I’ve tried many different products in the past to relieve it, including prescription items. I’ve used a couple of different Aveeno products with success in the past, but had never tried anything from the baby range. As my son had recently began to get dry skin again, particularly on his legs and face, this was a great opportunity to try out the Aveeno Dermexa Daily Emollient Cream and Goodnight Emollient Balm and see if they made a difference to his skin.
We applied the emollient cream after his bath each night. The texture was nice and light, easy to apply and absorbed almost instantly. Even after one night I noticed how much softer his skin had become, and over the next couple of days the dryness had gone. I also noticed that it made my sore itchy hands very smooth and comfortable, so I began using it as a hand cream and it really has made a difference, I found it very soothing and the angry red patches have virtually disappeared!
I then used the goodnight balm on specific patches of eczema on both of us. It was thicker than the cream, so a little went a long way and it really seemed to calm down the redness on my son’s face.
Oats come highly recommended for those with sensitive and dry skin conditions and these products contain natural ingredients, in this case colloidal (very finely milled) oatmeal, oat oil and oat essence. I also really like the fact that the creams contain less potential irritants as they are unscented, as well as being paraben free.
I would definitely recommend both of these products to anyone suffering from dry itchy skin, and will be continuing to use them on my little boy and myself as part of our bed time routine.
