Doublebase Emolient Cream
Advantages: Works well, quick to apply, I got mine on prescription.
I suffer with terrible eczema and it flares up during cold weather and during extremely warm weather too. I am always looking for something new to try to help clear it up and last time I went to the Doctors about something else I mentioned how it had flared up again and that I was at a loss as to what to try. I was given a prescription for this and I received a large pot of this. I have been using this for a couple of weeks now and I have also been using a Lush soap at the same time too which was already helping with my latest flare up.
This is a moisturising gel like creamy product that can be used regularly to help with dry and chapped skin complaints. My skin complaint is caused by dry skin so this is ideal for my feet. I begun using this twice a day, once when getting ready for the day and once when getting ready for bed in the evening. I have also used this straight after having a bath or shower too. The pump action dispenser that I was given has been incredibly useful for me as I can just give it a quick press and get enough to cover the patch on one of my feet. This has helped me avoid mess apart from the one occasion where I was a bit overzealous with this and it went all over my bathroom floor. Fortunately I have lino and this was easily cleaned up with some toilet roll.
This is dispensed quite smooth and is actually quite thin in texture. This makes it simple for rubbing in and there is no real scent to this other than just a clean clinical kind of scent. This cream starts to soak in quickly enough but it does take a couple of minutes drying time before the stickiness disappears.
I have been surprisingly pleased with the quality of this Doublebase product, particularly as I did not have to pay for it thanks to my NHS Exemption Card! This cream has worked wonders at clearing up my eczema and while this has not disappeared completely it has gone about 75% now and this is perfect as I have a party in a few weeks and want to get my pins out!
You can get Doublebase cream from your Doctor, as I did, if you have a need for it that is diagnosed by a Doctor. You can also find this on Amazon and this is the only place I have seen it online so far!
I have been very pleased with the quality of this product and was really pleased with my Doctor for my prescription. I will definitely keep this in my bathroom now for any flare ups and if I get dry skin anywhere else I will be using it there too. I have even been able to use this cream before I head in to the shower to ensure that my eczema is not dried out even more that is absolutely fantastic and I definitely found that the itchiness decreased hugely after my shower compared to a normal shower.
Summary: A fantastic creamy gel that works fantastically well for my eczema.
