Moisturizer recommendation for eczema sufferers - O’Keeffe’s
As some of you know, as an eczema sufferer, I have really dry and temperamental skin.
This winter weather we're having, IN MARCH, was really kicking my butt. For several weeks I suffered from severely dry and itchy skin. No matter how much water I drank, how much moisturizer I was applying, and how often, my skin would drink it all up, leaving my skin to be parched to the point it hurt to move.
I couldn't take it, so one night I ran to my local Shopper's Drugmart and found THIS moisturizer - O'Keeffe's, and slathered it all over my body. I instantly felt better. I woke up the next morning and my skin didn't hurt when I got out of bed. (Yes, that's how much it was hurting - I couldn't even pull my shoulders together without my skin feeling like it was going to split apart.) There's no fragrance at all, which is great, because I had to use a lot of it. The areas that I had been scratching were even healing faster.
AND, their '48 hours' IS TRUE! I didn't have to reapply. I'm super impressed with this - in all my years (as if I'm going to reveal my age =P) I haven't found a lotion that would actually make me feel comfortable and do all the things it's supposed to do. I'm so impressed.
