Treat Precious Skin With Exederm - Product Review & Giveaway.

Thanks to a campaign through Family Review Network I was able to review a product by a company called Exederm.

Over the past 6.5 years we have learned a lot about Eczema in my house. My son suffers from it and at times I don't know how he functions. Seeing him scratch is a normal occurrence, Benedryl and Hydrocortison is something we ALWAYS have to have in stock.

Eczema is a dry, irritated skin that can be triggered by irritants, allergens, stress, heat or sweating. My son has had it since he was 2 months old. It started on his eyebrows, moved to his scalp and now he has it everywhere. He has many irritants and we take great care in making sure his skin stays hydrated. In the winter we use loads of moisturizer and a humidifier in the house due to the dryness of the wood stove, heat and fireplace. Dressing him in winter clothes and then sending him to a too hot classroom is also a problem. Let's put it this way, he suffers all the time! The vicious cycle of eczema is Itch-Scratch-Inflammation. No very fair is it?

So when I saw this product a knew that it was for Eczema and that is recently received 12 separate awards from The National Eczema Association I simply had to try it on my son.

The products line packaging is amazing. I love the simple, unaffected marking of each product.

I especially love how the products have none of the following:

No Colors
No, Parabens
No Lanolin
No Alcohols
No Fragrance
No Sodium Laureth Sulfate
No Cocamidopropyl Betaine
No Phthalates

Here is a photo of the products we were able to try:

As soon as my son saw them he said, "those are for me!"

My Opinion In A Nutshell: We have tried each and every one and in my opinion, there is really no need to try another. Because my son scratches his skin so hard, he breaks the skin and sometimes putting the necessary cream on him is a problem. It stings and makes him more itchy on top of the complaining about it hurting. There hasn't been a single one of these products that have hurt him. In fact, this is the first product that he has ever brought over to me and asked me to put on him.

I really appreciate Exederm's entire product line. I have even been using the hydrocortison anti-itch cream called "Flare Control Cream" on my mystery rash and it has really brought down the itch and the redness.

Even if your baby doesn't have Eczema, why use products on their perfect, sensitive, newborn skin that contains things that aren't needed. Ecederm is a great beginning for the newest of skin.

Thanks to Exederm I am allowed to offer one of my readers the opportunity to try one of the Baby Line Products.
