Eczema Honey Skin Soothing Cream Review

Every winter I get some mild eczema on my arms, legs and hands. Generally I’m able to fight it off with heavy duty lotions and creams before it gets too bad.
This past winter due to a mix of using a lot of hand sanitizer (I was in and out of hospitals and doctors offices with my mom and was extra careful about sanitizing), completely forgetting my skincare routine during covid (my case wasn’t that bad, but I had to play the role of caretaker to someone that was completely wiping me out) and on top of that making sure everything was deep cleaned in my place post covid. The skin on my hands was so bad my normal go-to lotions were not helping. Even minutes after using salves and creams my hands still felt dry and rough with noticeable cracks.
The only thing that made any slight difference was Avon’s Skin So Soft and even that was barely noticeable - the before photo is after I used the Skin So Soft and it still looked and felt really bad.
While I was in the middle of this war against eczema I saw that Eczema Honey was offering a trade post on Instagram for influencers that were willing to do a before and after post on their Skin-Soothing Cream. I figured since nothing was really helping I might as well give it a shot. Thankfully I did.
Within three days of using it my skin was back to new. I had spent weeks trying to get rid of the eczema and this was the first thing to truly work. They recommend using it 1-3 times a day and I definitely started out using it 3 times a day and always before bed so I could get the full benefits before it got washed off.
The only real difference I can see between this product and other ones I tried is that they use colloidal oatmeal. I wasn’t super familiar with this before, but it’s apparently recommended for not just eczema, but also people going through cancer radiation to combat excessively dry skin.
Not just was this surprisingly effective, but it smells amazing. This is technically fragrance free so don’t worry if you have allergies, but it does smell like a lovely mix of honey, almond and oats - three of the main ingredients.
I will warn you that this is very sticky when you put it on. I’m assuming this because honey is an ingredient. Now that my hands are more under control I only use this before bed for that reason. It does seem a bit more like a skin mask than a hand cream for that reason.
Overall this is by far the best product I’ve used to combat eczema and dry skin. I’ll definitely be keeping this one on hand for future bouts of eczema and damaged skin.
