Aveeno Cream; Product Review

Hey Psquad,

So one of the latest products that I have been using is the Aveeno Cream with Colloidal Oatmeal. It is for dry and sensitive skin (two words that scream the definition of psoriasis). It does say on the bottle "suitable for adults and babies from 3 months who may be prone to eczema"
Helloskin summarise the product; This non-greasy cream from Aveeno, formulated with colloidal oatmeal, helps prevent water loss from your skin by rebuilding the skin’s natural barrier. Aveeno Moisturising Cream has a fast absorption time that makes it convenient for use during the day.

Aveeno Cream helps soothe and hydrate dry skin and is suitable for every part of the body. It contains refined oatmeal that is proven to rebuild the natural skin barrier and is free from parabens. The active colloidal oatmeal in Aveeno Moisturising Cream acts as a moisturiser for dry and sensitive skin with effect for 24 hours.
My routine; Usually for these type of cream I will just use it all over twice a day…

Epaderm Ointment; Product Review

Hey Psquad,

It's cold in England at the moment (shock😂), even my family members with "normal" skin are finding that theirs is dry. I've stuck to the same products recently, and am in need of a switch up...

The beautiful people at HelloSkin contacted me, and asked if I would test some psoriasis products for them. I chose the Epaderm Ointment as I have previously used the Epaderm Cream; with great results! 

I personally feel that ointments are better than moisturisers when it comes to treating my psoriasis. Normally, if my skin is tolerable, I don't use them as much because of their greasy-ness. When my skin flares up badly, I will use an ointment...always. I was drawn to this ointment because of the different ways you can use it...which i have put below...

So where is my Psoriasis bad right now?! Well I used this awesome form that I found on twitter, from Psoriasis Awareness, to show you guys where I am suffering at the moment and where I will be using the ointment:

Review; Sanex AtopiCare Moisturiser

Hey Psquad, 
How is everyone?!
The latest product that I have tried is: Sanex AtopiCare:

I became interested in trying this product when I saw it on the TV...I was like 'oooooo...I wonder how that'll work with my psoriasis', and off I marched to the shop to buy some. 
I currently use Sanex Dermo Hypo-Allergenic as my body wash, so thought it'd be a good addition of product for me to try! Whilst I use the body wash...I really wasn't aware of the skin moisturising range that they did. I was torn between two moisturisers and stood in the shop for a good 10mins debating which one I was going to actually use. In the end this product won because;
"For extra dry, reactive, even atopic skin. Control skin hypersensitivity. Fights severe dryness. Soothes itchiness" < ticks quite a lot of boxes for what I want in a moisturiser. 
Product Info; I bought my bottles from Wilkinson, they're usually £6.00 per 400ml bottle but I bought mine when they were on offer for £3.0…
