This moisturizer helps prevent my son's eczema from flaring up. It is great for his sensitive skin and doesn't sting like some other moisturizers.
My mom bought this for my brother because even though he doesn't have eczema, the skin on his hands was so dry and cracking from washing them so often at work (he is a server in a restaurant). It worked wonders for him and when my own hands were starting to get so dry during the winter and from constantly touching a damp cloth with bleached water, my mom bought me my own bottle of it. Worked wonders for me, too. It was so soothing and gentle and I have pretty sensitive skin and it didn't bother me at all. I find some lotions can irritate my skin (almost like it makes my skin way worse before it has a chance to get better sort of effect), but no such problem with this.
I love Aveeno and also use an Aveeno cleanser and moisturizer for my daily/nightly routine.
After reading wendyroy's review on this product, I went out and bought my own. Shopper's Drug Mart carries it and I managed to get it on sale for $8.99. I hadn't had a bout of eczema for ages when it broke out on my palms and wrists. Knowing how hard it had been to find something that worked, I remembered reading a review on it. I went in and pulled up the review again and thought I'd best try it to see if it really was that effective. By Jove, she's on to something, one application and already I was beginning to feel a difference in the itchiness. After about 24 hrs, the redness started to fade and the itch had subdued significantly. I remember how bad I would get a bout of this horrible affliction in the past, literally waking up with blood on my hands from scratching in my sleep. I would recommend this product to anyone who suffers from eczema and I want to say a big thank you to wendyroy for writing a review that caught my eye enough to make me want to go out an give this product a try. I have only been using it for a few days but the difference is amazing, truly a great product.
This is my best find of 2014. I developed eczema suddenly at 49 years old, following my husband's death. It was severe, and I tried OTC products, and eventually prescription hydro-cortisone. In January, I found Aveeno for Eczema -- it worked in less than a day, way better than even the prescription. I used it two or three times a day, and my arm was completely healed. I have continued using it daily, and haven't had any problems. If you have eczema, I would very strongly recommend giving it a try!
