Newest Review: ... plain white tub, so easy to dig my hand in and scoop out how much I need and apply all over. At the time I bought it, a 500ml tub cost... more
A good help.

Boots Skin Therapy Aqueous Cream
Advantages: Helps remove dry patches. Leaves skin soft.
Disadvantages: None for me.
I have bought this cream a few times because occasionally if I am not feeling well my skin needs a little help because it becomes much drier. I have dry, sensitive skin. Last month my skin needed a little help for some drier patches which my body lotions and butters couldn't soften. So I just reached for this cream and my skin is back to normal again now.
This cream comes in a large tub. It is Boot's own brand and I bought it for just over £4 for a 500ml tub. The tub is white and very basic looking with just the name on the front. The cream inside is white in colour, it has a really nice soft texture but it isn't runny. It is just a smooth cream. I cannot detect a smell with this cream.
It is easy to apply to the skin. I have used it on my feet because the skin is quite dry at the moment, I only apply a small amount to my feet and just keep adding a little at a time. While applying it, it does feel soft to the touch. It feels like a moisturiser in my opinion, rather than a lotion feel. It feels soft on the skin after it has been gently rubbed into the skin. It does feel a little tacky just for a couple of minutes until it is absorbed into the skin. It only takes a couple of minutes or so to soak into the skin. It then just leaves the skin feeling nice and soft. After applying to my feet before bed, I just pop on a pair of those socks that help soften the skin during the night. The cream on the feet and the socks work very well together. I find for my feet, using the socks is better because it gives a much better moisturise on the skin and the socks help lock in the moisture to just leave them feeling soft in the morning when the socks are removed. I do the same with foot creams on a regular basis with the socks to soften the skin on my feet. I don't use the socks during the day time because I just raise my feet on a towel until the cream has fully absorbed into the skin.
My elbows have been quite dry recently after using my body lotions, I have applied just a small amount onto my fingertips and just gently rubbed the cream on the elbow area. I have had some really dry patches on my knees, this cream has helped soften the skin and helped it to recover and it has moisturised the skin well to leave it in a good condition again.
This cream is good for eczema and is good for itchy skin. I use it liberally over my body because it is a larger area than just the feet, elbows and knees. It does take a good few minutes to completely absorb into the whole body area when more cream is used on the skin. I just use the cream before I go to bed at night or when I have a shower in the morning. I then wait until it has completely absorbed before I get dressed.
I find this cream soothes the skin at the same time it is moisturising. It contains Liquid Paraffin and White Soft Paraffin which gives relief for dry skin conditions. It can be used for both adults and children's skin, so a good cream which all the family can use for dry skin.
I really like this cream for giving me the extra help for my dry patches. It has helped my patches become soft again in just a couple of days. The amount of cream in the tub is a huge amount and so it is very good value for money. I think it is extremely good value for the money in my opinion. It is a fabulous cream that works in just a couple of days for the extra help for the skin that a moisturiser may not give for the skin.
I will continue to buy this cream because it works well to moisturise and soften my skin and to remove my very dry skin patches on my skin. I highly recommend it for anyone to try if you have dry patches on the skin that just need that little extra attention. My skin is back to normal now after just a week or so. I am now able to use other lotions and moisturisers for my skin in the usual way and the ones that have a nice fragrance.
