If like me you suffer from dry skin then this time of year can feel harsh. Cracked lips, dry hands and tight skin around my joints are aggravated by the damp cold weather and the central heating indoors. For me this is a new development but for two of my boys they suffer every year with eczema while my daughter spends her life requesting lip balms and tubs of vaseline for her lips only to find she then can’t prize the lids open on her own. Dry skin is a common complaint as are skin allergies. All too often I go to use a moisturiser only to discover an ingredient in the moisturiser itself has aggravated my skin even more. It seems skin conditions baffle the medical profession too who decided my last outbreak was some sort of viral reaction!
I have taken things into my own hands and found a brand that likes my skin and that of my family.
Hurrah for B Organic Skincare
You only need to read Our Story on the B Organic website to see why this range works. It was begun by a Mum just like me trying to combat eczema and dermatitis in her young daughter. From early beginnings Aycin has built up a brand which is now sold online and stocked by major retailers. She has received some great reviews on her products and won numerous awards to be proud of across all categories from expectant Mums to newborn babies all with no nasty chemicals yet smelling good enough to eat or fragrance free.
I am lucky enough to have 5 wonderful products on test here with me:
I don’t have any babies now but I am in love with the kidsbody and bottom balm and it has worked wonders on my son’s eczema which has been raging on his thighs. Being Fragrance free he is happy to wear it and not smell girly and the moisture effect is perfect. His eczema really has begun to recede after just a couple of day’s regular use. To be honest think this is my overall favourite product, it is so versatile I could actually use it for all the family’s moisturising needs and it is so effective a tiny pea size amount is all you need making it economical too.
My daughter has loved the feel of the shampoo on her hair and the matching lavender scent in the soothing body balm on her lips and round her mouth. Move over Vaseline this screw top tub is just the ticket and smells delicious!
The body wash is in our utility room for everyone to use and I have commandeered the body lotion to combat my own dry skin and it absorbs so quickly leaving my skin soft.
This range is worth shouting about, it looks good, smells divine and the balms are really intensive making them worth every penny.
