Living in New Orleans, the weather is usually quite humid during the Summer months. But now that the weather is changing and the air is drying out, so is my five year old’s skin. She is very prone to eczema and her skin is already becoming irritated causing her to itch. Last Fall, we had to take her to the dermatologist because her condition worsened as the Winter approached, so I am hoping to intercept the eczema by protecting her skin before it kicks in to high gear.
I received a sample of Aquaphor’s Healing Ointment and after reading the ingredients, decided I would try it on my daughter’s skin. The Healing Ointment is fragrance-free, preservative-free and non-irritating which should held to soothe her dry, cracking skin. From the press release:
“Aquaphor is a multi-purpose ointment that helps heal and prevent dry, chapped or irritated skin. It’s a gentle, effective formula that protects and supports the healing process.”
I have been using the Healing Ointment on my daughter for about two weeks now. I can say that her skin is indeed looking better. The Ointment is thick in consistency, but goes on her skin smooth and spread easily without being sticky. I plan to continue to use the ointment through the dry season and hope it helps to ease her condition preventing future flair ups.
In addition to the healing ointment, Aquaphor also makes a Baby Gentle Wash and Shampoo which is soap and tear-free! This product is perfect for my two year old who still cannot hold still in the tub causing soap in the eyes on occasion. While I did not get to try this product, I like the fact that it is supposed to lightly lather without irritating or drying out the scalp. Finally, a product I would love to try for myself is the Aquaphor Lip Treatment which was just released this month! While the dry weather wreaks havoc on my daughter’s skin, I tend to get cracked lips. This product seals in moisture in order to reduce dryness and visibly improves the condition of your lips. Sounds great!
If you put all three products together, the Healing Ointment, the Baby Gentle Wash and Shampoo and the Lip Repair, you get one amazing Wonder Set! Valued at $33, one winner will receive all three full size products!
