Curel Itch Defense Skin Balancing Moisture Lotion
Curel recently introduced Itch Defense Skin Balancing Moisture Lotion, a lotion specifically for those with dry, itchy skin, including the most common type of eczema (intense skin itch).
i cannot tell you how excited i was when i learned about this!
you see, my daughter has eczema. while it was more serious when she was younger, she still experiences painful itching if she doesn't keep her skin properly moisturized. some lotions she has tried (blame me) have irritated her skin, causing her skin to itch even if it wasn't before.
she keeps the Curel in her room :)
she likes St. Ives 24 Hour Moisture Lotion, but when this Curel showed up on our doorstep, and i told her what it was specifically for, she was thrilled to be the "expert" to test it out. here are her thoughts (with a few of bits of info from me):
"i like this lotion a lot. it makes my skin feel soft and i like that (the non-greasy formula contains olive oil and shea butter). i don't really like the smell, but i don't mind because it's not strong (it's actually fragrance-free). my skin doesn't itch when i use it, but if i do feel it getting itchy, i use this and it helps right away (the formula works to restore skin's barrier function and help it retain more moisture)!"
thought i'd also point out: the National Eczema Association has given Curel's Itch Defense Lotion their seal of approval and it's safe for everyone from adults to babies to use.
even if you don't have eczema, you may still experience skin dryness as the weather cools down (i know i practically bathe in body lotions during the winter!), so i think this is a must-have product for everyone during the fall/winter season!
