Neosporin Eczema Essentials

I tend to dread winter in my house more than usual the past few years.  It used to be just me that would get dry patches, itchy skin and red spots on my body.  Now all three of my kids do too.  On their cheeks, backs, stomachs, arms and even legs.  No spot of skin seems safe from the dreaded eczema (“the itch that rashes”).

I have tried so many things – lotions, creams, ointments, prescriptions with steroids, you name it and we have probably tried it.  A Mary Kay rep even gave me a sample of ointment once from her purse once while at the grocery store.  My kids red, raw cheeks looked that bad.  None of the products worked.  When Mom Central asked if I wanted to test out Neosporin Essentials Eczema kit I almost screamed ‘Yes!’ out loud. A nice email reply was sufficient.

The Neosporin Essentials trial pack included a body wash, daily lotion and an anti-itch cream.  The latter works really well on those chapped, red cheeks.  The kit claims that using the products will give you better results within in three days.  You know what? It totally does.  My youngest girl had dry spots on her thighs and back.  Bathing her in the thick (must rinse a lot) body wash begins the soothing process while the daily cream goes on smooth and protects the skin.  I like how none of the products are greasy and they don’t seem to wear off.  They absorb well into the skin and don’t contain any steroids. Containing lipid, humectant, emollient and botanical blend you can use it on the whole family. It also received Seal of Acceptance from the National Eczema Association.   The anti-itch cream has done wonders for my oldest daughter and myself.  My eczema acts up in my ears.  I put that stuff on after my shower and I’m good for the rest of the day and a few days after that.  The same goes for her legs which get so dry and scaly she is constantly scratching them.  The combination of all three products from the trial pack eased the symptoms on all the kids in just one day and after three the eczema had resided or gone away.

I was really pleased with Neosporin Essentials. It worked well, didn’t irritate or carry a heavy fragrance.  Combined the products work magic on our wintry, eczema riddled skin.
