This is the first of many product reviews I will be doing! I am excited to share with you the different products I’ve tried to help with my eczema. You have to remember that these products will not cure your eczema. It will help with alleviating the dryness, itching, and irritation. But if you combine these products with a good diet and healthy habits, you can make sure eczema never gets in the way of life again.
I am still dealing with eczema on feet. It get’s irritated very easily, dry, itchy, it’s still pinkish red and weeps in certain spots. Worst of all, I have eczema on the sole of both my feet. You can imagine how uncomfortable that can be wearing socks and wearing shoes.
I continued to soak my feet in Epsom salts and apple cider vinegar on different days. However, it’s effectiveness was decreasing the more I used it. Most of the products I was using was more of a moisturizer than a medicated cream. I was hoping with my diet, supplements and home remedies, it would slowly go away but it didn’t…
Penny Lane Organics: 100% Natural Rough Skim Balm
As my eczema came down to a tolerable level, I stopped looking for new ways and products to help or almost get rid of my eczema.
But I didn’t see much progress on my feet in the last few months and I knew I had to look for a new product to try.
After doing some research, I came across Penny Lane Organics: 100% Natural Rough Skim Balm. The only reason I clicked on this product was that the skin on my feet was actually rough. After reading the product description and the ingredients, I had a good feeling that it could also help eczema on my feet.
The description states that the balm helps relieve numerous skin problems and irritations caused by rashes, burn and skin dryness. It also claims to relieve itchiness caused by eczema, psoriasis, rashes, burns, and even for diaper rash cream.
The beneficial ingredients for eczema in this cream are:
- Olive oil
- Calendula oil
- Chamomile oil
- Coconut oil
- Vitamin E
- Zinc Oxide (this ingredient helps with drying out the weeping areas)
The zinc oxide was the determining factor that made me want to give this product a try.
So, does this cream work?
After only a few days of using this cream, I saw results right away. The eczema on my feet was healing and most the weeping areas dried up.
A little bit of cream goes a long way with this product. The colour of the cream is white and as you apply it, it doesn’t sink in right away. So keep applying in a circular motion until the whiteness of the cream disappears.
It does not have a strong smell, so you can apply to the affected areas and go to work without worrying about the smell.
Keep in mind that it does sting.. a lot.. if your eczema is severe like mine. However, after a few minutes, it does go away. I actually prefer creams that sting a little bit only because it makes me feel like its actually doing something.
If you have wet, weeping eczema, I highly recommend giving this product a try. Or any natural product that has zinc oxide as an ingredient.
You can buy this product in select stores in Canada and on their site. They do ship internationally as well. Check them out here: https://pennylaneorganics.com/
However, if this product doesn’t give you the results, don’t be discouraged! Not all products work for everyone since everyone’s body is different. At least you can rule it out and try another product
I hope the product works for you and that you enjoyed this post!
