Eucerin Original Healing Soothing Repair Lotion, 16.9 Ounce Bottle

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

I’ve been hooked on original Eucerin lotion for 18 years, and have hooked others on it too. That’s how great it is for chapped skin and hands that are washed frequently. As hands are a very obvious giveaway of age, it’s important to me to preserve their young look.

I first learned its power when I worked as an infant/toddler caregiver. Some babies drooled so much during teething that they had eczema around their mouths and painful chapping on their chins. Their pediatricians recommended Eucerin. So, parents would bring it and we’d apply it to their children’s faces at every diaper change, both as cure and prevention. It worked beautifully, without prescription and no complaints from the babies! I have suggested it to countless parents who have been very happy with the results.

It wasn’t long before all the adults were using it, too. Taking care of kids means a lot of hand washing, and potentially very dry skin. Eucerin got me through many years of full-time childcare duties and helped me maintain very youthful hands. All it would take to turn anyone onto Eucerin is letting them try some. The thickness is like no other lotion. It’s very difficult to settle for anything less. We always have a bottle near the toilet so I can massage it into my hands whenever I sit.

As a frequent litter-box scooper/cleaner with four cats, I use Eucerin every day now into my 40s. My partner won’t use any other kind of lotion on his face unless we’re out of Eucerin (which I am careful about not allowing to happen). It also doubles as a makeup/sunscreen remover for me. It doesn’t break out my very sensitive face and also doesn’t irritate my eyes. We love that it has no scent! I like scents but not near my eyes. It also works for hair frizz!

This is one of my top products that I wouldn’t live without.

Excellent for Allergies!

Thursday, August 16th, 2012

My doctor explained how Vitamin A eliminated his allergies. This product is a fantastic solution to allergies in a dry supplement. I didn’t want oily or fishy, so this is perfect!

I used to suffer from terrible seasonal allergies, particularly to pollen, dust, grass, and trees. I’m also allergic to cats and dogs, and considering that I have four cats and love to be around dogs, I had no choice but to get rid of the allergies. Now I take Vitamin A instead of allergy meds. I’ve used Allegra, Claritin, Zyrtec, Zycam, and a number of homeopathic remedies from Hyland’s and Similisan, and this particular Vitamin A trumps all. I wouldn’t want to be without it. Solgar also makes a great dry one. If Thorne isn’t available, that’s what I buy.

It’s also fabulous for my skin. For a skincare supplement, it’s hard to beat Vitamin A.

FYI, the cats I’m referring to are indoor only. I don’t know if I’d still react badly to cats tracking in allergens from the outdoors, but working out in the yard among all the usual triggers doesn’t affect me anymore, so I’m guessing it would be ok. We would never let our cats loose outside, allergies or not.

Veterinarian’s Best Dry Clean Waterless Cat Bath Foam

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

This foam bath is absolutely awesome! Nothing in it to harm my babies, and they love it! Makes them shiny, soft, and fresh. I will definitely not go back to the kind we used before. This one has safer ingredients and doesn’t smell strong. Only the best will do for our furry monsters. This is the best!
