.

Once in the morning and once at night initially then whenever my skin felt irritated. 



Did you use the Intensive Skin Therapy for yourself or as part of your child's skincare regime?



For myself. I get persist very dry elbows prone to eczema. Nothing clears it completely. I usually use sudocrem as steroid cream can't be used long term.



What benefits did you notice to yours or your child's skin when using the Intensive Skin Therapy?



The first few applications I was concerned as it stung my skin for a few minutes but that didn't last. After four days of twice daily use my elbows look normal! No itch, amazing!! 



After one use of the Intensive Skin Therapy, how did your skin feel?

After the first use, as I mentioned above, my elbows stung. But that only lasted a few minutes and the stinging didn't return.



Would you continue to use the Intensive Skin Therapy and/or recommend to a fellow Mumsnetter

Yes I would.

NoWayNoHow Fri 18-Oct-19 13:52:24

How often did you use the Intensive Skin Therapy?
- once or twice a day

Did you use the Intensive Skin Therapy for yourself or as part of your child's skincare regime?
- just myself

What benefits did you notice to yours or your child's skin when using the Intensive Skin Therapy?
- for the first day or two, the red bumps from my keratosis pilaris were more obvious, but after a few more days of use I have noticed a huge improvement - the bumps are less red, less raised, and less visible and, because I limited the use of the cream to a particular area on my legs, it's even more obvious to see the difference its made

After one use of the Intensive Skin Therapy, how did your skin feel? Hydrated, but not greasy

Would you continue to use the Intensive Skin Therapy and/or recommend to a fellow Mumsnetter?
- absolutely, I can't wait to see what effect it has on a larger area over a longer period of time, and will also use on my son's affected areas too

VictoriaBun Fri 18-Oct-19 13:55:54

How often did you use the Intensive Skin Therapy? Please describe if you followed a particular routine, or if you adapted the use of the product to your own needs.

I used it first thing in the morning , and again after having a shower.

- Did you use the Intensive Skin Therapy for yourself or as part of your child's skincare regime?I

Mainly on myself. I used it on my child when they got some dry patches on behind their knees.

- What benefits did you notice to yours or your child's skin when using the Intensive Skin Therapy?

It definitely works , I'm not too keen on the smell of the cream, it has a very mild chemically aroma. It rubs in easy, and is not sticky in anyway.

- After one use of the Intensive Skin Therapy, how did your skin feel?

Smooth and hydrated.

- Would you continue to use the Intensive Skin Therapy and/or recommend to a fellow Mumsnetter?

Yes I would reccomend, and would buy in the future.

Cotswoldmama Fri 18-Oct-19 13:56:50

How often did I use it?
Twice daily. In the morning an evening. I’ve got a really itchy patch of dry skin them at I’ve had for about 6 years it appeared whilst I was pregnant with my first son. The are has become pigmented so it’s darker than the surrounding skin. The itching has greatly improved and the pigmentation seems to be fading.

Did I use it for myself or child?
I used it in myself (see above) I might try it on my son too now I’ve had no negative reactions but his skin is very sensitive and is eczema prone so I’m a bit worried that the perfume in it might cause a reaction on him.

What benefits did I notice?
My skin feels less itchy and the pigmentation reduced. The texture is also smoother.

After one use how did you skin feel?
Moisturised and protected

Would I continue to use it? And recommend it?
Definitely and I’ll be trying it on my son too.

How often did you use the Intensive Skin Therapy? Please describe if you followed a particular routine, or if you adapted the use of the product to your own needs.

I applied to after my bath, on dry areas, and also on my hands after washing up.

- Did you use the Intensive Skin Therapy for yourself or as part of your child's skincare regime?

I used it for myself.

- What benefits did you notice to yours or your child's skin when using the Intensive Skin Therapy?

This is a genuine WOW! product for me. I have had patches of extremely dry skin, which becomes sore/flaky/irritated, along with diagnoses of eczema AND psoriasis, since my teens. During the past 20+ years I have tried countless creams and NOTHING has ever made my skin feel so moisturised, supple and protected. My skin has never been so soft! It doesn't leave a greasy film, and doesn't irritate either. Absolutely FAB product!

- After one use of the Intensive Skin Therapy, how did your skin feel?

My skin felt moisturised, comfortable, soft, a lot more supple and less irritated.

- Would you continue to use the Intensive Skin Therapy and/or recommend to a fellow Mumsnetter?

If this product comes in at an affordable price point I will definitely repurchase, and I've already recommended it to several friends and family.

HitsAndMrs Fri 18-Oct-19 14:30:28

I used the skin therapy as and when I needed it but always before bed.
I used it on myself, DD6 and my DH.
I was unsure of this product initially as it was quite thick and didn't soak into the skin very quickly, however, after multiple uses, I know this is imperitive to the product as the thickness and the fact it does stay on the skin for a while reduces the itchiness and the tight feeling i usually have.
My skin felt very calm and the tight skin feeling I usually have dissappeared.
I would continue to use the skin therapy but I felt it was too thick to use on DD as she need it on her whole body and she doesn't like the feeling of creams so I would need a lighter more fluid product for her.

Thank you for letting me try this product.

sparklefarts Fri 18-Oct-19 14:59:54

- How often did you use the Intensive Skin Therapy? Please describe if you followed a particular routine, or if you adapted the use of the product to your own needs.

I used after showing as per my usual routing, plus at times throughout the day.

- Did you use the Intensive Skin Therapy for yourself or as part of your child's skincare regime?

For myself

- What benefits did you notice to yours or your child's skin when using the Intensive Skin Therapy?

I thought this cream was lovely, it was a nice consistency and my skin did feel so soft, unfortunately, it seemed to make me very itchy.

- After one use of the Intensive Skin Therapy, how did your skin feel?

Skin was noticeably softer.m silky. It did sting some of my very dry patches and I must be sensitive to something in it as i was itchy afterwards

- Would you continue to use the Intensive Skin Therapy and/or recommend to a fellow Mumsnetter

I wouldn't due to being itchy but I would definitely recommend to people with less sensitive skin

Thanks very much for letting use test this product! Its a winner!

- How often did you use the Intensive Skin Therapy? Please describe if you followed a particular routine, or if you adapted the use of the product to your own needs.

Answer ~ I used this on me and my husband as we both have dry rough skin on our elbows, hands and he has some on his face, we're very weathered! lol We would use it in the morning and at night after a shower.

- Did you use the Intensive Skin Therapy for yourself or as part of your child's skincare regime?

Answer ~ For myself and husband.

- What benefits did you notice to yours or your child's skin when using the Intensive Skin Therapy?

Answer ~ The rough has definitely gone down a lot, my hands feel much much smoother, and my husbands elbows are unrecognisable! lol, This stuff really is gentle and works well!

- After one use of the Intensive Skin Therapy, how did your skin feel?

Answer ~ My husbands elbows immediately looked and felt different, still bumpy, but much less coarse! My hands straight away felt smoother and less tight. I prefer using after a shower as it all sinks in beautifully!

- Would you continue to use the Intensive Skin Therapy and/or recommend to a fellow Mumsnetter

Answer ~ I would say if you have dry skin, and you need something that works gently, quickly, and is worth every penny, then yes, I would definitely recommend! This works and I am grateful to have found it.

How often did you use the Intensive Skin Therapy? Please describe if you followed a particular routine, or if you adapted the use of the product to your own needs.

I used it in the morning after showering when needed, daily at first but every 2-3 days after a while.

Did you use the Intensive Skin Therapy for yourself or as part of your child's skincare regime?
As part of my own, the children didn't have an flares when I was testing.

What benefits did you notice to yours or your child's skin when using the Intensive Skin Therapy?

Nicely moisturised and most impostantly not sticky

Would you continue to use the Intensive Skin Therapy and/or recommend to a fellow Mumsnetter?
Absolutely, I was quite sceptical as I've tried so many creams but I saw benefits more or less straight away.

margaritasbythesea Fri 18-Oct-19 16:50:11

- How often did you use the Intensive Skin Therapy?

I used it once a day after a shower in place of my usual moisturiser.

- Did you use the Intensive Skin Therapy for yourself or as part of your child's skincare regime?

For myself.

- What benefits did you notice to yours or your child's skin when using the Intensive Skin Therapy?

It is noticeably softer on my arms but i find myself using my normal hand cream just as frequently during the day.

- After one use of the Intensive Skin Therapy, how did your skin feel?

Noticeably softer immediately on my arms. Not a great deal of difference on my very dry hands, I'm afraid.

- Would you continue to use the Intensive Skin Therapy and/or recommend to a fellow Mumsnetter?

With reservations. I haven't found it as effective as others clearly have, and i don't like the smell, which is quite like urea creams. It's also quite thick but does sink in well after a short while. Its not greasy and it doesn't leave a residue.

I am going to try it on my daughter if she'll let me as she is even more prone to objecting to smells than me.

I used it once a day usually in the evening

For myself. We both have KP but I wanted to test it on my skin first.
- What benefits did you notice to yours or your child's skin when using the Intensive Skin Therapy?
This is a fantastic product! I wish it had been available when I was a teenager; I have lived with bumpy arms my whole life. The cream goes a long way and really helped smooth out the bumps. I would probably prefer it to be a little less thick though (just my preference).
- After one use of the Intensive Skin Therapy, how did your skin feel? Really well moisturised without being greasy.*

Yes I would recommend and am interested to check out the rest of the range

PashleyB Fri 18-Oct-19 18:06:38

I used the cream daily and I used it for me only

I found that for my less distressed areas of skin it felt softer and smoother and more hydrated. However on my more sensitive eczema prone areas the product made my skin tingle in an itchy way

After one use the non sensitive areas felt better and smoother after a single application

As I have found with eczema what works well for some works less well for others and this worked less well for me as it was uncomfortable on my more sensitive areas of skin (inside of elbows) etc. However on my hands it felt really moisturising. I was not keen on the smell which was a bit strong. I was glad it worked well for others but I am afraid not for me

munchbunch12 Fri 18-Oct-19 18:23:33

For me mainly, but a little on my dc's eczema patches
