E45 Itch Relief Cream
Advantages: Relieves itching and absorbs well.
Sometimes I get irritations on my hands, they itch and sometimes I tend to scratch them too much and make them sore. I didn't have any of this cream handy at home recently when my hands were itching and I was making them sore scratching them, so I popped to the shops to buy some. I have been using it for a good number of years, so knew it was a good cream.
I bought a tube for £2.25, the amount in the tube is 50ml. The tube is white with E45 clearly on the front. Is easily spotted in the shop. Inside the tube it is a cream, it is white and has a very soft texture. It is more the texture of a moisturiser but just a little thicker consistency.
It is easy to apply to the skin by just squeezing a little from the tube directly onto the area you need to use the cream. It is easy to gently rub the area, it takes a couple of minutes to absorb into the skin and it doesn't feel greasy and just soaks well into the skin. When my hands felt continually itchy and I applied some of this cream, it eased it almost immediately. It relieved the itching in no time. When I have itches I sometimes try and rub them rather than scratch them but if the itching is too much I have to scratch and then the area becomes sore. This is when I use this cream for a quick relief. Works in a fast time for my skin.
This cream works wonders for irritations on the skin. It is good for flaky skin too. I sometimes suffer with dry skin on my knees, I find a couple of applications of the cream helps to soften the skin and bring it back to normal again.
It is good to use on itchy skin, chapped, flaky and rough skin we all suffer from at some point in our lives. It can be used also for sunburn, I haven't used it for sunburn so cannot say whether it works or not for soothing burned skin. However I can say it does work for rough skin, it helps moisturise and soften the skin so that it becomes more softer and less irritating.
I do suffer occasionally with mild eczema, I don't have this problem, but when I have this condition I just use this cream for a couple of days and my skin is back to normal again.
This cream is well worth the money. It is available in larger tubes and tubs. It is also available in a pump action bottle and this is a lotion so that if you want to use it more often and maybe every day and need to use more of the product, the lotion may be an option so that it is more easy to just pump from the bottle directly onto the hands and then apply on the skin.
I highly recommend this cream for anyone who suffers with dry skin or just minor irritations or just to use on a regular basis. It eases the itching almost immediately it is applied to the skin. It soothes really well and leaves the skin nice and soft.
All the family can use this cream, including small children. It is an effective cream to help the skin to bring it back to a more comfortable feeling and it works to stop my irritations on my hands.
I will keep on buying this cream. It works and it is worth the price. It is also good quality and good value for money.
I rate it 5 stars.
Summary: Nice cream.
