As much as I love all the cosyness of winter the cold doesnt do my skin any good. Every year I end up dry, tight skin, flaky hands and chapped lips. Over the years I've tried a combination of different moisturisers, masks and creams. My vanity table is usually bulging with different products all promising to be heal my winter skin. But this year I've replaced all my potions and lotions with one multifunctional product! I was given the opportunity to take part in the My Aquaphor Challenge and try out their Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm and I've been delighted with the results.
Eucerin Aquaphor Smoothing Skin Balm has been a household favourite for repairing skin since 1925. This multifunctional balm is made up of only 7 ingredients that's gental on skin. It creates a protective barrier whilst still allowing the skin to breath making it suitable for not only my skin but my boys too.
Over the past couple of weeks I've stored a tube of Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm in my bathroom and one in my handbag and I've discovered a whole range of uses for it.
I've been applying the Balm to my own skin after every hand wash, dabbing it on any patches of dry skin and spreading it on my lips. The tube in my handbag has helped protect my hands from the harsh winter wind while pushing Tommy's pushchair and on the school run. I've found it absorbs really quickly without leaving a greasy residue.
Its proved to be a fantastic barrier cream to use during nappy changes to help prevent nappy rash. Tommy has sensitive skin so I need to be careful which products I use on him, however this balm has been both gential and nourishing on his delicate skin.
Our house has been full of coughs and colds over the past few weeks so I've found Eucerin Soothing Skin Balm works a treat on red sore noses. I've been dabbing a little around Oliver's nose to protect from the constant nose blowing and on his lips as a barrier against the bitter cold weather.
I've be delighted with how useful and effective Eucerin Soothing Skin Balm has been on all the families skin. In future I won't be bothering with all the different lotions and potions and just be sticking this wonderful balm.
