Shielding lotions (see my last review!) are the latest innovation in skincare, forming a barrier on the skin which keeps allergens out and moisture in. Following my success with Skin MD lotion, I started to see what other similar products are on the market. One such product is the fantastic DermaShield Mousse.
This product works the same way as shielding lotions, but differs as it is in a mousse format. The company that supply the product are based in Wales and the site is very user friendly and has the personal touch. The mousse is available in several formats and the first time I tried it I bough a little tester bottle, which was a good way to see if the product suited me.
The mousse is lovely and light and cool on the skin, not at all greasy, sticky or heavy. It is absolutely perfect when in a rush or on the go. I bought a big bottle which cost about £20, but lasts absolutely AGES. I use the product every day and have had the same bottle for over A YEAR!!!!
The mousse forms an invisible layer on the skin, which protects against things such as harsh soaps, detergens, inks, biological fluids and acids. It allows the skin to breathe and perspire normally and does not wash off. One application protects the skin for four hours.
I have found the product really useful and very good at preventing contact allergies. I have a pet rabbit, which I am allergic to but can handle if I apply this product to my arms and hands. My husband is a cleaner and finds that rubber gloves irritate his skin, but if he applies a golf ball sized blob of Dermashield first, he can wear the gloves, no problem.
This product is great for anyone with allergies, or someone who comes into contact with irritants as part of their job. The mousse format is really clever, and allows the product to last for a long time. £20 for a bottle of this is a great investment because it lasts well over a year. I took a little travel bottle on holiday to keep in my handbag, which was really handy.
