People with dry skin know the endless struggle of finding new products that actually work. Many lotions and serums have only for dry skin on their label but they aren’t suitable to use due to fragrance. If you have extremely dry and irritated skin then read an honest review of the brand and learn how good is Aveeno lotion for eczema.
I am always on the lookout for skincare products for my mother who suffers from eczema. This time I picked up Aveeno Dermexa Emollient Cream. The internet is filled with rave reviews about this product so I decided to try it on my own. To give you my honest feedback.
Aveeno Dermexa Emollient Cream
Aveeno is a skincare brand that has covered all the skin types with every issue you can ever encounter. Today I will review Aveeno Dermexa Emollient Cream from their Dermaxa range. This line is specially made for skin with eczema or psoriasis. They have a whole range for this starting from the face wash to the toner. But I will only review the main cream which can be used separately as well.
Ingredients (Mentioned on the website)
Colloidal Oatmeal 1% (skin protectant)
Water, glycerin, panthenol, distearyldimonium chloride, petrolatum, avena sativa (oat) kernel oil, steareth-20, isopropyl palmitate, cetyl alcohol, dimethicone, benzalkonium chloride, ceramide NP, sodium chloride, avena sativa (oat) kernel extract
It is recommended by the company to use Aveeno Lotion for eczema for 4 weeks and then see the difference. So my mother has regularly used it for 4 weeks and now I can share my review:
APPLICATION: There is gooey quality to it which is just what I like in a skincare product. I don’t like it when they are way too liquid. Firstly, clean your face and then towel dry it. Then take a small quantity and spread it on your face with light massage motion.
PACKAGING: The packaging is really sleek and I love the color tones they used beige and blue. It comes in a 200 ml tube which looks really sleek. The product comes out easily when you tap it open. Basically, it’s quite easy to use and you can take it anywhere with you it won’t create a mess.
SCENT: Like many products made solely for eczema this one also has no scent which is a great thing.
Tip: If you are new to the skincare product hunting if it has scent it might not be good for dry and sensitive skin.
TEXTURE & FORMULA: As I said earlier it has a slightly thick texture (like a conditioner) but it won’t feel thick on your skin. It’s super easy to apply and blends extremely well.
I will give you detailed feedback on each progressing week. This definitely not one of those creams that will show a significant difference in one application but keep using Aveeno lotion for eczema regularly to see the results.
First Week: If your face feels extremely tight and itchy then you will see a positive difference only after using it for two days. The redness and dry patches will not budge as they are stubborn and takes a longer time.
Second Week: Again the uneasy rigidness in the skin completely vanished since the third day of use. The Itchiness became infrequent but still, it wasn’t completely gone.
Third Week: In the third week the red patches caused by the dryness start to fade and skin started looking visibly better.
Fourth Week: After a whole month the skin looked more fresh as it was looking rather dull due to the dryness and itchiness before. The patches were gone completely but the cream didn’t do much for the swelling it went on it’s own ( by taking medicine).
I have tested a lot of skin care products in the last few years but this one has become a permanent staple in my skincare routine as well. I also use this cream daily especially in winters and it has also made my skin smoother and my skin is which is dry (except for T-Zone). For eczema-prone skin, I would say this will not be a quick fix it will work very slowly, and that too mostly with the itchiness and dryness. For normal, combination, and dry skin I would say this can do wonders by keeping your skin moisturized without feeling heavy and tacky on your skin.
