As I explained in my review for the Aveeno cream, my doctor advised me to try this range when I felt as though I was a walking canvas for eczema. My skin didn't actually feel sore for using my previous moisturiser (I can't even remember what it was as it was about six years ago) but I listened to her advice because my whole body was agony.
It has an unfragranced, vaguely oaty smell which I find inoffensive; this of course is great if your skin is sensitive. In fact, it is so gentle that it is palatable to my daft dog, who wants to want to lick the pump every time I use it *insert grimace here*.
It isn't the cheapest moisturiser in the world, but I do think it is worth it. It quickly gets to work gently rehydrating your skin, whilst using its oaty goodness to bring it back to a decent PH level and provide a barrier to external irritants - this means it it is perfect for people like me with annoying red patches, or people who just want a good moisturiser.
I hear a lot of complaints about how winter dries out skin, but honestly, I haven't had a tight and uncomfortable face since I have used this, and I don't even remember when I last had facial eczema.
A couple of months back, I switched to a moisturiser with big claims designed for redness and itchiness - it was three times more expensive, three times as small, and not half as effective. I would urge anyone to give this a go before spending a fortune on brands like Avene and Roche Posay, you'll be pleasantly surprised with the results.
The downside to this brand is that it isn't cruelty free, but it has been such a lifesaver that I will probably continue to buy this, and others from this range. They are all so helpful. Sorry bunnies :(

I really like this lotion! It’s great for dry skin especially I find in winter and is easy to apply and dries quickly. Leaves skin feeling moisturised and smooth. You get a lot of product too. Plus it’s not crazy expensive! All I would say is that I’m not too keen on the smell of it, I prefer fruity smells (like my body shop body yogurt)

✨This is a straightforward body moisturiser which does what it says on the bottle! I love how quickly it absorbs into the skin, minus the feeling of being greasy! My skin did feel quite tacky which lasted until the following day, but it was bearable. It left my skin feeling lovely and smooth, especially post shaving. I would’ve however preferred something a bit more hydrating, but that is down to me usually neglecting anything from my neck down 😂 It is a good no frills daily moisturiser, which over time does leave you skin looking and feeling amazing.It’s in a nice big bottle too, lasts ages!

I find this lotion great for its moisturising properties and I can see why it is aimed at people with quite dry skin. I find it makes my skin soft and smooth feeling. It easily absorbs but not too quickly so you don't need loads of it. I am a big fan of lotions in pump dispensers so that is a big plus point for me. The only drawback back is it leaves my skin feeling like it has coating on. It's not greasey and doesn't feel horrible, it's just something I notice when I rub my leg. Wouldn't out me off buying it again though especially when it's on a good offer.

Seems to do the job well although I don't use it daily so perhaps I'm not getting its full benefits. The skin seems to drink up the lotion within 5 minutes which is impressive, skin does feel nice and soft afterwards. Would buy again!

I've suffered with psoriasis for 15 years and after trying everything under the sun, this was the gentlest thing for my face but also really effective. It provides long lasting moisturisation without inflaming my psoriasis like some prescribed emollients did. It is quite a rich formula but I would say it is suitable for all skin types. Highly recommend especially for skin conditions!

Although this moisturises extremely effectively, I find it leaves me feeling oily and gross after I have massaged it in to my skin. It's such a shame because the formula is so great, but I just hate the feeling afterwards. I wouldn't recommend putting jeans or leggings on straight after.

This is my go to! I don't think I could live without this moisturiser just because it works so well. I have always had issues with dry skin around my eyes and with this it went within a couple of days! Even my doctor recommended this

This is the best treatment for my eczema. It performs a lot better than anything prescribed by the doctor. If i ever have any irritation, it disappears after a few days of using this. The only downside is the smell. It isn't awful but it's not something i personally enjoy.

I absolutely love this moisturiser, it is amazing. Since i have stared using this I haven't used another moisturiser! Its a very light weight moisturiser so it absorbs into your skin really quick, without your skin feeling dry; and i think that's amazing. I highly recommend this! Also people prone to eczema can use this cream so thats a bonus!

This product was recommended to me by a friend. I decided to try it while it was on offer and I haven't looked back since this is amazing. Im not to keen on the smell of the product however I don't let that stop me using it, my skin is left feeling so soft for up to 24 hours. You have to give this a try trust me you wont use anything else again!!!!!

Literally the best moisturiser I've used, can't fault it at all. 100% recommend it for those who suffer from dry skin. It isn't greasy at all and sinks into the skin virtually straight away! I get quite bad dry skin during the winter months and my mum got me this and it literally has worked wonders to my skin!

Brilliant for sensitive skin, fast absorption and it clears away all those weird dry patches of skin you don't realise are there until you itch something and you're like 'ew what the hell is that'. An all round good moisturiser. It's even safe to use on your face as its non greasy and doesn't clog pores. What a winnaaaahh.

This is a must for people with sensitive skin. I often get rashes and particularly my face often stings when using moisturiser, and so far this is the only product which does not. It is absorbed very quickly and leaves a very soft touch. The only problem is it smells quite potent but if you have dry skin and need a moisturiser then this is perfect.

This is by far my favourite moisturiser. I use it every day on my body and face as a makeup primer as I find that it helps my foundation stay put all day. It rubs in really well and doesn't leave my skin sticky, its a thick consistency so they bottle goes a long way. I have seen an improvement in how soft my skin is since using this moisturiser and I shall continue to purchase.
