To wonder what it would do to my face?

I've been given some heavy duty eczema emollient by a friend that gets free prescriptions. Not that she doesn't use it, she's just ended up with a lot.
It has changed my wrinkly handed world. Seriously, I have the backs of hands of a fifteen year old.
I'm considering diving into the tub, face first. Aibu to think it might work?

send some my way I'll be your guinea pig grin sorry I know that is not helpful but I could do with something to sort my dreadful skin out lol

What's it called? (considering sending DH with his eczema to the GP to get me a pot!)

i have eczema and use the emollient on my face when I run out of my face cream. I've not found it that spectacular sadly-I have quite dry skin on my cheeks and it doesn't moisturise them as well as it does my body. By all means give it a go though-it won't do any harm-and perhaps a fifteen year old face awaits!

It's called zero base. Am donning a snorkel, will report back.

Zerobase is available without prescription I believe for those interested.....

Yeah, it makes your eyes sting and smells like saddle soapenvy

Maybe try it on your neck first (and report back!)

Montezumasrevenge grin shall be avoiding that then, if only there was miracle cream that sorted all skin problems ( sighs )

Skin feels a bit sweaty. Hopefully I'll wake up tomorrow like Natalie Portman grin

Hate to be a downer but, on a serious note, your friend should realise that every unneeded prescription costs the NHS money it can ill afford. If a prescription for paracetamol costs the NHS £10 then this could cost even more and she really should be making sure it isn't ordered if not needed.

Not getting at you OP as I know it is not your responsibility but we are all watching these TV programmes about how the NHS is struggling yet prescription over-ordering is estimated to cost the NHS £300million a year

Ivor I went to the Dr with back pain a while back and was prescribed 100 cocodamol.

It's not the patient's issue if they have been prescribed too much.

PS I still have about 96 cocodamol left hmm

ivor I get it, and no offence intended. She gets big tubs, I got the bottom of the one kept in the kitchen that I pinched a bit of when I did the washing up for her. She ain't no shirker, and didn't part with lots, just a little bit of cream for a wrinkly friend.
We won't be bankrupting the NHS any time soon wink

Anything that hydrates the skin is good for fine lines as they're often due to skin being dry rather than permanent wrinkles. That's why most anti-wrinkle skin creams get good results for fine lines.
You would probably get a similar effect with olive/grapeseed/coconut oil.
