Boots Skin Therapy Aqueous Cream
Advantages: multi-uses, good effects
Aqueous cream is a product that i think every household should have in theur cupboard. This comes in so handy for any member of the family.
Boots plc, a popular high street chemist sell aqueous cream in tubs of 500ml as seen above, and also in a pressurised container, a little like a hair moussee bottle in a 200ml amount. This 200ml bottle (which i find stays fresher than the tubs, and also more hygenic) cost £4.09 form your local Boots store or online.
It is in a white packaging which i think shows how clean and hygenic the product is advertising as, and the 200ml bottle has the typical boots logo at the top, advertising the Skin therapy aqueous cream.
The lid of the product is a plastic and clear so that you are able to see the dispenser and the action to release the cream is to press on the applicator (which is white).
The ingredients consist of:
- Cetearyl Alcohol
- Paraffinum Liquidum
- Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
In english, this is a water based cream, hence the name 'aqueous' and should therefore not be greasy and leave a sticky residue. The fact that this cream is water based is the key to its success i believe, and has more use than the bog standard moisturising cream.
Boots claim that their cream can be used daily, moisturises dry sensitive skin and is easily absorbed. All of these i believe to be true. It really is the case that you are able to apply to the skin as required to soften and moisturise your skin, and one point that i think is padticularly poignant, especially if we are thinking of those with dry skin conditions or young babies whose skin we want to keep moisturised and soft, aqueous cream can also be used instead of soap for washing the skin. A fabulous second use, and as previously stated as it is water based, gently dissolves in the water and into your skin without the greasy residue. To make this cream even better, it is preservative free, but for safety reasons with any product, i would advise you stop using it if there are signs of irritation, and it is important to avoid contact with the eyes.
All in all, a relativley cheap cream that is both colourless (it is white) and odourless that can be used for washing as well as moisturising. I have never had ill effect from using it and never had a reaction within my family. I would advise that you use with precaution initially as it will depend on the individual as to whether there may be a reaction. A great product, 5/5!
Summary: great multi-use product
