dri-pak review / soap flakes / natural cleaning and laundry products / eczema

I was sent liquid soap flakes by this company to try.
The main reason for my trial of this product is that I have eczema on my hands that flares up when using products that have unnatural ingredients and chemicals in them.
Usually when using these products I have to wear gloves to stop my hands from coming into contact with it but because this product is natural I didn't have this problem.
Even when I did get some of the product on my hands I had no itchiness or redness.
Though it is a gentler product it still cleans really well and leaves clothes with a nice fresh smelling scent and leaves no residue. 
Another great feature of this product is that it is suitable when washing waterproof items.
The above website has more products available and also has some fantastic natural cleaning tips.

my trusty skincare / review / natural / eczema

I came across this website when doing a search for natural skin care as my daughter and I have eczema and I also have a 6 month old baby so of course I need something for him that is for sensitive skin. I was telephoned by a lady named Lauren to discuss my needs and was sent samples in the post to trial and see how I got on.

I was sent a full size sample of the sunflower cream unscented and then a small sample size lavender scented sunflower cream, body butter and face and body oil.
Sunflower cream unscented and lavender
I was very impressed with the unscented cream. I even used this on my caesarean scar as it helps to relieve tightness in the skin when the body is repairing itself. This is the first cream I have ever used on my scar as I'm a bit apprehensive because my skin is so sensitive, but I had no problems and was very pleased with the results. The lavender cream I was also very pleased with as I liked the scent of it and because it was still a natural scent it didn't irritate my skin.
Body butter
This is a fantastically versatile product and can even be used on chapped lips,which I tried, and found it to be very moisturising. It also absorbs very quickly into the skin.
Face and body oil
This was also a great product and I found it worked very well on my babies skin as he gets very dry skin on his head under his hair and when I use some of the thicker oils that are on the market it makes his hair really greasy even when I wash it out but this oil didn't do that.

Please see the website above for more information on these truly effective skin care products.

The products were developed as a direct solution to painful itchy skin experienced by patients attending the Tissue Support Clinic in the Plastics Surgery and Burns Unit of Salisbury District Hospital and all profits go straight back into patient care which I think is brilliant!

indulge naturally / skincare review / body scrub / baby bum balm / natural

I received 4 products from this companies line of natural skincare to try. The first thing I noted is the great customer service as they were very helpful and prompt with their replies to my questions.
Rose sugar body scrub
This is such a simple and yet effective product. As an exfoliator it really does the job and made my skin feel so soft after use.
Usually when I try to use exfoliating products they irritate my skin, as its really sensitive, but the ingredients in this are limited to coconut oil, sucrose and rose petals, so no added nasties.
 The little rose petals are a lovely addition giving a fresh scent and they also make it look really pretty.

Pumpkin spice soap
This soap lathers well and does not have an oily residue. 
I really liked the scent and it lasted well without being too overpowering.
Again,like the body scrub, the ingredients were all natural and so I had no adverse reaction, no itchiness and no redness.

Winter balm
This is great for the winter months when its colder and your skin gets dry quicker, but for people like me with cracked skin on their hands this is a handy product to use all year round.
Its much better than using a moisturiser because I tend to find moisturisers make my skin feel greasy afterwards. This gave enough moisture for my skin not to feel dry but not too much to aggravate my eczema.
It also gives a protective layer for your skin.

Baby bum balm
I have tried quite a few similar products to this over the years and this was one of the best because the consistency was perfect for application.
It has a lovely coconut scent which is really nice.
This is a good thing to use even before nappy rash occurs as a barrier to help keep the skin hydrated. But when I first started using this product my son already had a bit of nappy rash so I used it at that point to help to clear it up.
