Aveeno Cream; Product Review
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"
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.
Usually for these type of cream I will just use it all over twice a day; morning and evening.
I started off using it all over at night and then only on my body in the morning (makeup didn't sit well on top of it). It is a smooth cream to apply but I wasn't overly fond of the way the product felt once on my skin.
£9.45 for 500ml bottle (you can use my 10% discount code below)
10/10; Kind of sweet? I can't really place the smell but it is a subtle but nice one...
5/10; whilst I agree that it isn't "greasy" I found that it was weirdly sticky...kind of tacky to the touch even after it had been on for a while. You get used to it but it is weird at first. It does also feel that it sits on the skin and isn't absorbed very well.
10/10; great bottle, kinda big for travelling but you can lock the pump so it doesn't go everywhere.
6/10; I found the waiting for it to absorb was a little annoying when in a rush
In all honestly, I wasn't impressed with this product;
No real difference to my psoriasis after a good months use,
Did settle the flakes a little but not enough,
Pso patches still red and raised,
Tacky texture which I wasn't a fan of,
Sweet smell is nice however,
It may just be that this product is actually more suited to eczema or people with sensitive skin/dry skin, rather than someone with psoriasis.
One thing to note is that you may react to this product in a different way to me!!

**HelloSkin gifted me this product, for the purpose of a rewiew. My post are, and always will be, my personal opinion on products that I have tested; regardless of them being gifted or self-purchased. My blog is to honestly review products for the treatment of (my) psoriasis; my passion**
So, I know that Bio-oil is most commonly used as a product to help with stretch marks and uneven skin tone, but I thought that if it would/could help with that, then maybe it will help with the roughness of my skin that is caused by psoriasis. I also have un-even skin tone where the areas of psoriasis are redder than my very pale skin. When an area of psoriasis starts to get better, I also end up with a silver tinted skin patch which looks the same as a scar; therefore, I decided to see what bio-oil does to my skin condition and whether or not it helped. Info: You can buy Bio-Oil in most places. I found this specific one from Costco but I am sure that they are everywhere (Boots/Tesco/Superdrug) or somewhere online. A description of their product that they have online: “ Bio‑Oil is a specialist skincare oil that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. It is also effective for ageing and dehydrated skin. Bio‑Oil has won 167 skinc
Being contacted by the British Skin Foundation was a compliment but being e-mailed by someone to be a part in their documentary about the effects of Psoriasis is more than I could have asked for. I have never really been one of those people who enjoys their photo being taken (unless it is by myself so if it looks hideous it can easily be deleted and unseen by anyone), let alone being videoed talking openly about something which I don’t even like to think about. BUT I started this blog for a reason and to have other people contact me to help them raise awareness of psoriasis is not something which I can turn a blind eye to. Hayley Arnold is a final year university student and has taken it upon herself to create a documentary dedicated to psoriasis as she comes from a family who knows and understands the detrimental effect that it can have. I think that this is a really honourable thing to do and could never imagine saying no to a project as special as this. If anyone wou
So after posting a blog on Health Unlocked: British Skin Foundation yesterday they got back to my post and asked me to become a case study for them. If you'd like to see our conversation. Click here. This is exactly the kind of thing that I want to get involved in. It would be amazing to talk to others who also suffer from psoriasis!! So i sent off the form and will just have to wait and see what they say back to me :D If anyone else out there would like to be a case study and give themselves a voice the link to the form is: http://www.britishskinfoundation.org.uk/Getinvolved/Shareyourstory.aspx I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t nervous, I am pretty nervous talking to anyone about the condition as I never really have before. I really don’t want to be trapped inside a room of self-conscious anymore and think that this would be a brilliant start to break out!! Fingers Crossed for their reply
