This Balm works!! My daughter suffered so badly from eczema and I had tried every cream you could think of, prescription and non prescription, natural, you name it. i was given skin fix to try and within a week we noticed a difference and now the eczema has cleared up completely. this product was a life saver!
I used this for dry, itchy (eczema?) skin flare ups. It doesn't get rid of them completely but gives some relief if I keep applying it. The formula is quite greasy. It doesn't get absorbed and will easily get on clothing. Also the smell is not pleasant at first but you get used to it.
Pretty good for my eczema prone skin. I also use it for rough, dry patches of skin that aren't due to eczema and it softens up the area quite nicely. When I suffer from extremely dry chapped lips I'll put some on at night, its a better option than vaseline.
My daughter has bad eczema on the inside of her elbows and we love this cream. It doesn't matter if she scratched it opened, this cream doesn't burn or hurt her. We usually put this cream on and wrap it up at night. The price is a little high but it really works for her. We love this cream and wouldn't put anything else on her arms.
The Skinfix Gentle Eczema Balm for babies is formulated with natural ingredients. This is what lead me to try it. As well, the Skinfix brand is rated 4/5 on the National Eczema Society product list.
I have moderate eczema on my face and neck. I tried this product for two weeks on my neck eczema, which is usually more severe. It took about the whole two weeks for my eczema to clear up.
I applied the balm morning and before bed during the first week. It has a significant zinc oxide and oatmeal smell to it, which I didn't mind. However it did seem strong at times because it was so close to my face.
The balm leaves a white residue when applied and does not absorb quickly into the skin. However, my skin did feel protected and it soothed the itch.
I am a 26 female and this might be why it took so long for it to work on my eczema. I can see how it could be more effective on a baby's skin.
Overall, I did enjoy the product. The price point is a little high (I purchased it for $16.99CAD at the Real Canadian Superstore; it is a 2 oz. or 60ml tube). However, I did not use much of it during my two weeks of flare up, so I feel that the price is worth it since it will last me a while.
Check out my review video here (it includes before and after pictures of my eczema):
I use this for my eldest son. He gets really bad eczema on his arms and legs. It gets so bad that he starts to pick at it, and I don't have to tell you mom out there that it is hurt to get your kid to stop.
Within the first couple of days of using it, I noticed an improvement. and within a couple of weeks (using it on him everyday) the rash barely noticeable. I was amazed at how well it worked.
I don't much like about it, is the smell. It is fairly overpowering, and I have to wash my hands right after putting it on him. And it is quite expensive, but you don't have to use much, so it lasts a while.
I would definitely recommend it.
