Salcura Skincare + Giveaway
One of the problems I have while looking for skincare is that my skin can be extremely sensitive when I have an eczema flareup and they occur about once a month, mostly a small flareup but others can be horrendous! I'm always looking for products to help and over the years I have found quite a few from prescription creams to french skincare and eczema specific products. I was very kindly sent a couple of products from the natural skincare brand Salcura who specialise in skincare for people with eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and acne.

*Salcura DermaSpray (£16.99, 100ml): I have eczema mainly around my eyes and my cheeks but I do also get it sometimes on my ears and hairline as well as the large patch on my left hand. The eczema on my face can be awful at times and obviously I can't hide it which can be quite depressing but the eczema on my hand can be equally as bad especially as I wash my hands more than my face. I've tried numerous prescribed and generic eczema creams for my hand and a couple have worked well although some just irritate my skin.

This lotion is in a spray bottle so it would be perfect if you had larger areas of eczema on your body however the spray isn't as useful for me as I just have it on my hand. However the spray lotion is very light weight so much so that it is almost like water on the skin, it doesn't irritate my eczema and it relives the look and feel of very dry and tight skin. It absorbs very quickly so it would be perfect for those with larger areas of body eczema. Additionally, 98% of the ingredients are of natural origin which is fantastic and the products are free from parabens, SLS, artificial fragrance, lanolin and more. It must be so popular as one is sold every five minutes in the UK! Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5.

*Salcura Zeoderm Repair Moisturiser (£9.99, 50ml): I also received this moisturiser that is suitable for the face and body. The moisturiser is suitable for severe cases of eczema and other dry skin conditions. The cream is an unappealing colour and both products do smell medicinal to me which may put some people off but I have been using this moisturiser on my hands and on my face and it has been helping so much with reducing the feeling of tight and extremely uncomfortable skin due to dryness; it also helps relieve the look of dryness and flakiness.

I will definitely get so much use out of the moisturiser and I have been recently as my eczema has been flaring up (due to stress/anxiety and weather changes I think) and I've been using a small amount on my face after my facial oil. When used in conjunction with my other products, my eczema is slowly fading! Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.

Now onto the giveaway, the lovely people at Salcura are giving my readers the chance to win a fantastic winter skin therapy pack which would be perfect if you have dry skin, eczema or another dry skin condition. There will only be one winner and this giveaway is UK only! The prizes will be the products I have featured in this post. To enter just fill out the Rafflecopter form below:

  1. I used to have very bad eczema on my face. My mother told me it used to fall off in patches. I do get a hit of it during the winter time, but my skin has improved drastically.

  7. I've never tried anything from this brand. I have super sensitive skin, flairs up with so many products, have to just be very careful, especially of alcohol or fragrance. My best tip for winter is to stay hydrated from the inside, by drinking enough water. x

  11. Have you tried La Roche-Posay's Lipikar Baume AP? I suffer with eczema on the back of my shoulders and at times last winter it was irritating me so much I just wanted to claw my skin off. I had a sample of this and when I tried it my eczema cleared up pretty much over night, I couldn't believe it x

  15. I do on the crook of my right elbow! I use hydrocortisone and dibrobase but it just flairs up in the winter or if I'm 'stressed'! So funny, but so annoying as it looks so angry sometimes x

  16. Sadly yes, I do suffer with eczema. I use E45 Cream to heal treat & ease my dry itchy skin. I've never tried anything from Salcura so far, but I would love to! Keep your skin moisturised during the Winter especially. I find that coconut oil and cocoa butter work really well.

  17. Fortunately I don't suffer from eczema, but I do have extremely sensitive and dry skin, which is acne prone. I tend to just stick with Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser (*gasp* I know there's a lot of controversy) and Nivea Day cream for dry and sensitive skin. And at night I tend to use coconut oil as I find it does a great job at rally hydrating the skin without causing any irritation. Some days I may feel fancy and use a scrub (St. Ive Oatmeal Scrub). Since my skin is so sensitive I have to be careful with the choice of products I use.

  18. Keep drinking a lot of water and don't have very hot showers even though it's tempting too! Hot showers and baths are actually bad for your skin and make it even drier.

  19. I suffer mildly, mostly get issues with my hands especially in winter I do tend to shower when problems are bad and use creams without added ingredients xx

  20. I don't have eczema, but I have an uncommon type of psoriasis called guttate psoriasis. I can't use the normal steroid creams on it so have to rely on heavy duty moisturisers. I usually use diprobase as it's the best thing I've found so far for it

  21. my daughter does and we use a big pot of E45 creme and paster it on her

    ReplyDelete
  22. I have very dry skin and get rashes which I think might be Eczema, I am allergic to Aloe Vera which discounts a lot of lotions and creams for me

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yes I do and I use the spray and recovery cream from Salcura all the time, it is supposed to be for children, but really works on me.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I used to have Psoriasis - fortunately it rarely crops up

  26. I have eczema, and I tend to use E45 for moisture and bathing, but still have to use steroid cream from the doctor.
