“This simple cream works like a dream on upset skin: cooling and soothing ingredients like oat milk, rose water and chamomile blue oil calm down hot and itchy skin. That’s why it’s one of our bestsellers, with many of you telling us it gives great relief from eczema. We steep oats in hot water to make oat milk. Oats have long been used to treat eczema and cool skin down as they contain antihistamines, and we’ve added extra nourishment in the form of rose water, cocoa butter, organic extra virgin olive oil, and vegetable glycerine.”
I got this cream as I had heard some great things about how it helped eczema and I had a really bad patch on my leg that just wouldn’t leave. With the help of dream cream I was able to lessen the dryness and itchiness of this patch, although I was still using my emollient gel to seal the moisture into the skin. I also have to note that it doesn’t help get rid of the eczema it just alleviates the itchy symptoms and dryness and so a prescribed hydro-cortisone cream had to be used on this particular patch to fully get rid of it.
The really good thing about this particular lotion is that even though it has a strong smell to it, which I was initially worried about, it doesn’t irritate my skin at all. I also use this after shaving as it has calming properties and so works well to lessen shaving rash. I wouldn’t recommend using it in a morning ritual as it does take some time to properly sink into the skin and so will rub off on clothes if they’re put on too soon. Often I will slather some of this over my legs at the beginning of my night ritual so that its sunk in enough when I do finally get into bed.
