My Skin Saver
Good Morning! Happy Friday to all of you. This week, I wanted to write a review of my new, favorite products...Calming Body Wash and Calming Itch-Relief Treatment from Eucerin! The last weeks of my second pregnancy have not been kind to me, or my skin. I have developed a horrible skin sensitivity during week 36, that just causes me to itch all night long. While my OB suggested Hydro-cortisone cream, it just wasn't working for me. I felt like I was constantly applying it. Therefore, out of solutions, I went to CVS and purchased these calming products by Eucerin.
Once I got home from the pharmacy, I jumped in the shower to use the body wash. It is a daily shower oil, and a very different consistency from what I am used to. As a girl who loves products, I am used to foamy, lathery body washes that smell like coconuts or other exotic fruits. Calming Body Wash is a fragrance free oil that is made with omega oils. Once you work it into your hands, the product makes a nice lather. Once I applied it, it felt wonderful on my skin. It is soothing and feels so hydrating. It helps so much with the itching too. I have been using it twice daily in the shower and it definitely alleviates the itch.
After the shower, I follow up with Eucerin's Calming Itch-Relief Treatment. This cream is amazing! It is extremely hydrating and it does stop the itch. My skin feels so soft and smooth. The product is advertised as "Immediate Itch-Relief" and for me, it does provide just that. It is made with an oatmeal formula and is gentle enough for use on children and people with sensitive skin.
In summary, I am impressed with Eucerin! My OB, as well as articles online say that once my daughter is born, this itchy rash will go away. However, I will continue to use these products. I am a huge fan of self-tanner, but can now see the drying effect it has had on my skin. My skin feels amazing now and I don't want that to stop. Thank you Eucerin for saving my skin, and my sanity! Being 9 months pregnant and up all night itching was no fun. These products have helped with that.
Thanks for reading. I hope that you have a wonderful day!
