Need a good shower cream

Can anyone recommend me a shower cream that actually moisturises? I have a couple of eczema patches that I just can't seem to get rid of, and want a moisturising body wash that works.

Please, I'm desperate.

I think you can get E45 bodywash. Not used it but imagine it would be worth a go.

Aveeno is pretty good. I think they do a body wash.
Supermarkets and Boots etc sell it.
I think you can get it on prescription too.

Holland and Barrett sell a range of toiletries called Dr Organic that have no sulphates etc in them and they are really great for skin problems, I bought them for my Dad who has terribly dry skin that was driving him insane and its made a huge difference. They are not expensive (maybe £4 each?)

If you get a massive pot of epaderm (over the counter in Boots) you can use it for anything - it's an ointment good for dry bits when you put it on dry skin but when you get it wet it melts into a milky liquid you can use as a shower cream. I use it to take off make up and cleanse and has cleared my facial eczema right up. It doesn't have a nice fragrance though, just smells Vaseline-y.

Have you tried sanex? always on offer somewhere and the bottles last ages. Have heard good things about aveeno, only tried the handcream though.

I really like The Sanctuary shower cream.

Thank you. Some good ones to try here.

Johnson's 24 hour moisture, extra rich body wash is excellent. My husband is prone to eczema and this is the only shower cream that doesn't make him itch or break out in eczema patches.
