Reczema Review

I've spoke previously about my children suffering with eczema, especially my youngest daughter and my 6 year old. Over the years I have tried many creams, lotions and potions that claim to sooth irritations and get rid of the dry skin itself, 9 times out of 10 I have been left extremely disappointed. I was recently asked if I would like to try Reczema, a product made in Sweden that is fairly new to our country, used for the treatment of not only eczema but other skin rashes too.

This cream has been clinically proven to improve the symptoms of skin rashes, irritated skin and eczema and best of all it is free from steroids, preservatives and perfume, this could be a great alternative to cortisone creams.

It is safe to use on everyone including babies, children and pregnant or breastfeeding women. It has an anti-allergic action meaning that it can't cause any allergic reactions or hyper sensitivity.

Directions for use say that the cream can be used on the face and body and it is recommended that it be apllied in the morning and in the evening after washing but it can be used throughout the day as well if needed. The cream is was to apply, it is non greasy and any excess is simple to wash off.

When applied it creates a protective barrier, this fights against external irritants whilst its active ingredient 'fulvic acid' helps the skin cells absorb the vital nutrients they need to heal properly, in turn leaving skin feeling softer and smoother.

Freya has been using it on her arms for around 4 weeks now and her once red, blotchy and dry arms are almost clear, it is a huge transformation.

The good thing is that because this isn't a steroid cream it is suitable for long term use.

There are however a couple of negative factors. Even though there is no added perfume, there is a certain smell to the cream when you first apply it which isn't very pleasant, the smell does seem to fade away after a couple of hours and I suppose it can always be covered up with perfume.

The other downfall is the price. A 50ml tube will set you back £26.99 which is quite expensive when you compare it to other creams that you can buy from the pharmicist or get prescribed from the doctor. However on the flip side if that is it a small price to pay if you are being relieved of daily itching, scratching and soreness?

Overall I think Reczema is a great efficient cream that is suitable for the whole family, definitely one to consider if you have exhausted other options.
