      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A highly recommend emollient cream that is relieving my eczema symptoms.

      I suffer with severe dry skin on both my ankles/feet and I am constantly plagued by nasty looking feet. This is caused by eczema and I have tried a variety of products over the last couple of years with little or no difference in the dryness and the sore looking skin.

      I was browsing Boots recently and I have about £4.00 worth of points and wanted to buy something for my feet that would be reasonably cheap and hopefully work (why else would I buy it?!).

      Anyway, the product was around £3.50 and whilst I can't find the actual size that I brought online there is a smaller product (as per the Dooyoo picture) for 97p. The size I have is 300g and the product differs slightly from the picture above. It is in a white tub with a screwable lid and it has two labels advising what the product is for (dry skin conditions such as dry eczema, chapping, nappy soreness and sunburn) and how often to use it (2 to 3 times a day).

      Upon unscrewing the lid there is no wildly overpowering smell but I can slightly smell the almond oil that this product contains and a slightly creamy medicinal smell. The cream is white and fairly thick in consistency. I ensure my hands are clean and then dip my finger in to the pot and then apply some to each sore area on my ankles/feet. If I have had a bad day and have been stressed I often scratch my foot (habit unfortunately) and I do find that this may sting a tad if I've been making my foot raw beforehand, however, if I have not scratched my foot since the last application it does not string at all and it makes my skin feel much smoother and softer from just one application.

      I have been using this product for a little over two weeks now and the difference to my eczema is very clear and I couldn't be happier with this product. It is by far the best improvement that I have ever seen in such a short space of time and this is one of the cheapest products that I have ever tried out. I have only used around 1/8 of the pot also so it's a very long lasting product.

      I would definitely recommend this product to anybody with a dry skin condition who is getting no relief from other methods as it's even helped reduce the amount that I scratch as I'm applying it at least twice a day and it's keeping it soft and smooth for hours and by the time it begins to irritate again I just apply some more cream. I am rating this product 5/5 as I can find no bad points about it at all.
