    très efficace

    Ma fille et moi faisons de l'eczema depuis plusieurs années maintenant. J'ai été choisie afin de tester gratuitement ce produit grâce à chickadvisor. Cette crème est vraiment miraculeuse et l'apparence de ma peau s'est nettement améliorée depuis que j'utilise cette crème. Je recommence à toutes celles qui font de l'eczema ce soin merveilleux. Mes mains ont retrouvées leur douceur d'avant. Seul petit hic, elle brûle lors de l'application si la peau est vraiment abîmée. Sinon, je recommande à 100 % cette crème!

    Effective but Inconsistent

    To give you a context for my review, I have struggled with sensitive skin and eczema since I was a baby. My skin gets dry quite easily and our Canadian winters do not help. I am also a total Aveeno girl. I take frequent Aveeno oatmeal baths in the winter and am never without my Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion on my nightstand. That being said, I liked this product but was not in love with it.

    As anyone who struggles with eczema knows, you will try anything and everything to relieve the itch and sooth the rough patches and redness. As as result we've all tried countless products in our quest. While I found this balm to be effective for certain patches of my eczema, I found it totally ineffective on others.

    I noticed that it worked wonders on old, stubborn to heal patches, yet it was pretty ineffective in soothing my new flare ups. I had a few patches of skin with lingering redness, but not that much itch that had been around for months. Somehow this balm eliminated the rough patch and redness on these after a few days of applying only once a day after a shower. However I had some new flare ups occur while I was using this balm, and it did not seem to significantly reduce the redness or the itching on these. Unfortunately it did little to control the spread of the new flare ups as well.

    I will also say that it is not the type of balm that soothes the itch on contact. Many other eczema spot treatments claim to do this (and some do it well) but I don't think this balm is meant to be used that way. Where this product excels is as a daily general skin care product for itchy, dry and sensitive skin. It is a large tub (excellent value) and the condition of my skin where I had been using it is great. For example, I have several patches on my hands (particularly at the wrists and knuckles) so I used this balm 3 times a day on my entire hand. My hands are soft and the skin is smooth and moisturized. It hasn't controlled one of the new flare ups on my wrist, but the overall condition of my skin is lovely, and the roughness and redness of some older patches has cleared up.

    I received this product free to try from Aveeno and the Chickadvisor Product Review Club. Overall I do not think I would purchase it in the future but I would recommend it to a friend. Just because it wasn't entirely effective on my eczema does not mean that it would not work for others. Furthermore, it is a high quality product and a great value for the amount you use, and how far it goes.

    Very creamy and so Soothing

    This cream is really great. I have very dry skin and have been trying to find a product that will help reduce my dryness. This cream is so smooth and creamy goes on very soft. It absorbs really fast, which is great. It doesn't leave behind a greasy residue that transfer on your clothing.

    So far since I've been using it for a week I have really noticed a big improvement with my dry skin. So much more softer and less irritated.

    I really love this product and highly recommend it to those who suffer from dry irritated skin.

    Too oily for me!

    Aveeno Eczema Car Itch Relief Balm works well on dry skin but it is too oily for me and my husband. It did not work for my husband, he had a reaction and then his eczema spread even more (very sensitive skin, cant use many products and this being another one he can't use on his skin). Made him way more itchy :( Wont be buying again! #free #sample #chickadvisor

    As effective as product prescribed by doctor

    I have recurring eczema on my neck, last year I went to dermatologist and was prescribed with betaderm, steroid based cream. I couldn't stand that smell, it was really horrible. Aveeno eczema care cream has so subtle smell, you can barely notice it, and it's not awful. Cream is thick, very fast absorbing, unlike prescribed one, and free of steroids which is very important to me, because I have my eczema about 2-3 times a year, so I'm very grateful for this more natural opportunity. Though of course have to mention that it takes a little longer to show it's full effect, but it's still worth it. Will definitely buy more.

    Safe and soothing

    I finally found something that works!

    I’m one of those magical people that passed on my finicky skin issues to my poor children. Imagine my surprise though when I was sent a free sample of something that worked on ALL of us! It completey cleared up my son’s eczema and stopped him from scratching constantly. It cleared up my two year old’s face rash (because yes, it’s THAT gentle). It fixed my dry/frozen hands that I was previously putting lotion on almost constantly with no results.
    I’m one of those people that usually have 8 different lotions for different things kicking around the house. I haven’t touched any of them since trying this stuff. It’s seriously that good. The scent is minimal and soothing (and completely nonmedical smelling, which seems to be a common theme with lotions that I have tried in the past that are eczema specific). I can’t recommend this stuff enough!

    HOLY GRAIL ALERT

    Oh my goodness this product!! I have super dry, thirsty skin, and suffer from eczema and psoriasis THIS STUFF IS THE BEST bar none!! Its more soothing than many prescribed lotions and creams I've used!! Aveeno Eczema Care provides a deep soothing, moisture that locks in and LASTS. Like, actually lasts. Almost all day long. It is slightly thicker in consistency as it is a balm and not a lotion or cream, which at first I was taken back by but the tiniest little bit goes soooo far, I can't stop telling people about this stuff I'm so excited about it & will definitely be purchasing more for family members, and of course myself!!

    Great Relief for Itchiness

    I tried this balm as part of the Product Review Club.

    My skin has always suffered from eczema but it hasnt been too bad this winter. Though for some reason, my legs have been extremely dry and itchy this cold weather season. The balm provided instant relief and also mosturized my skin. It can feel a bit sticky but at least I don't feel the need to scratch my legs off.

    Aveeno Eczema Care Itch Relief Balm makes my eczema bearable

    I live in Canada where the winters are dry and very cold (-30C), so my eczema definitely acts up in this weather. Aveeno Eczema Care Itch Relief Balm is non-greasy and absorbs fast! I would definitely buy this again, as it helps with the itch and keeps my eczema at bay. Aveeno products are tried and true since I was a little girl -- this one is no different!

    Also, I'd like to disclose that I received this product for promotional purposes, but I would probably buy it.

    Bye bye Sahara skin!

    I had eczema and extremely dry skin since I was young, I've always used prescribed body lotion and cream in order to soothe my skin. However, my creams contain hydrocortisone and one of its side effects is thinning of the skin. And recently, a nurse advised me to seek other creams or lotions for eczema due to my skin condition - flare-ups and rashes.

    I was thrilled when I received the Aveeno Eczema Balm for free from ChickAdvisor! I've been using it for the past week and it's a game changer! It has a thicker texture and reminded me of Glysomed. However, compared to other creams and body lotions, this balm actually leaves my skin moisturized throughout the whole day. So, instead of applying twice a day, I only apply the balm at night now. I've noticed that not only my skin is softer, but the redness and eczema have calmed down!

    Thank you ChickAdvisor and Aveeno for the opportunity to test out the Eczema Care Itch Relief Balm; the product delivers fantastic results for dry skin and eczema!
