I suffer from eczema and my skin is really sore at the moment. I have been using Liz Earle cleanse and polish for the past month or so and have received lots of compliments on my skin, however I am finding the cloths a bit of a faff, though using the cleanser in itself is easy, it doesn't remove my eye make up thoroughly though.
Anyway someone at work today told me she uses aqueous cream for just about everything, she removes her make up with it and her skin looks lovely. I am tempted to use this myself but have seen bad reports about it on the Internet. It sounds so useful and cheap also.
This lady at work also said she uses Bare Minerals on her skin which again looks lovely but when I have tried a sample it makes my face look powdery.
Any advice please? Would I be better just sticking with Liz Earle?
I used to get eczema on my face and tried huge amounts of things over the years. I've found that the best thing for me is to wash it as little as possible (only on the rare days I wear makeup) and use nuxe reve de miel day cream and body shop aloe Vera night mask.
I try to avoid make up as my skin is definitely less good for a few days after, but I think Washing it off is what causes the problems. I use a Khiels face wash for sensitive skin but maybe I need to try something else.
I have eczema and aqueous cream + water used as a soap makes my skin right, red and as dry as hell. I used it on my face once and my cheeks were red and sore for days.
The best thing I've found for taking off makeup is simple's range - the purifying cleansing lotion has made the world of difference, it's like taking your makeup off with moisturiser instead of stripping your face to bits! I think sodium laureth sulphate is what aggravates mine and since cutting it out of most things my skin has been MUCH better.
