Let me fill you in. I have shockingly dry skin. Although I hate to admit it, but I could never be a hand model… My hands have had a hard life and they have suffered. I have ridden horses all my life and so they are ‘hard working’ hands, they get so dry that they crack. Now, being a mum, with multiple nappy changes and lots of other reasons to wash my hands; things have not improved for my poor hands. My other issue is that I hate hand cream.., helpful?! I really dislike the feeling and I usually end up washing it off. I have tried some ‘posh’ creams before and they have made my skin itch and burn, resulting in a few quid being washed down the sink. So when E45 offered to send me some lotions I happily agreed.
First up the ‘Intense Recovery Lotion’
‘The E45 Intense Recovery Lotion is designed for very dry skin and has a gentle, perfume-free formulation. This lotion is specially formulated to help support skin’s natural moisture recovery, improve skin healthy look and restore long-lasting softness in just two weeks’.
My first impression was positive, as the product was a lotion rather than a cream. I thought the thinner formulation of a lotion may suit me better. My first impression was correct and the lotion soaked in quickly. I was so pleased that it didn’t leave my hands feeling sticky or claggy. Even after a couple of applications I could see and feel some difference. Don’t get me wrong, my hands weren’t suddenly as soft as a baby bottom, but they were noticeably softer. I have used it on and off for just under two weeks and there is definitely an improvement. I wish I could remember to apply it more regularly, as I am sure the results would be even better if I did.
I am thrilled that I found this product, as it is something that I know I will continue to use.
This lotion is a daily light moisturiser, which is perfect for everyday. It can be used all over the body, face and hands. It is perfume-free, dermatologically tested and allergy screened, which means it is suitable for even sensitive skin.
I have been using this lotion on my body, face and a little bit on some patches of dry skin that Baby has on her back. It is a really light lotion, which absorbs really quickly. In all cases the results of using the lotion have been great. I didn’t try it on my hands, only because I know I need the hard core version for them.
I would definitely buy this in the future, as a general all round moisturiser.
So if you are looking for new skin care products I would give E45 a try.
The lovely people at E45 have given me some lovely products to give away. I have a set of E45 moisturising lotion and the ‘all new’ overnight hand cream to send to three lucky readers.
