Planter's Natural & Young Aloe Vera Repairing Cream [Review]

Dear readers,

You might [or to think of it, you might not] know that at the moment I'm in the middle of an M.A. course, which has wreaked havoc on my poor feet and hands.

Yes dear readers, I suffer from stress induced eczema which flares up depending on my stress levels.

I've tried all sorts of creams and lotions and potions, but the only way that it settles is when I'm feeling calmer.

So the only thing that I can do is smother my feet with soothing cream.

Enter the Planter's Natural & Young Aloe Vera Repairing Cream.  

The main ingredients are;
 aloe vera barbadensis, karité butter, rice oil, linseed oil, St. John’s Wort oil, sweet almond oil

And it is;
Paraben free, silicone free, peg free, alcohol free, petrolatum free, allergen free fragrances, no animal derived raw materials, lanolin free, nickel tested, dermatologically tested.

This can be used on both face and body. 

I've tried using it as a moisturiser/night cream but I mostly use this on my eczema [If you scroll down I've attached a before/after picture].

It is easily absorbed into the skin without leaving a greasy residue. I mostly use this at night when I'm in bed [it has a permanent residing place on my bedside table]. 

My feet itch like crazy and sometimes the soles of my feet are so sore that I find it really painful to walk but the Planter's cream really softens them up and is really soothing.

And I really love the smell this has - I find it really comforting if you know what I mean [and it does linger on my skin]

The Repairing Cream can be bought in the 75ml tin like I have [and hey, there are 9 collectible tins!] or in the 150ml tubes.

I love mine so much that I've hit pan and I need to re-purchase this ASAP.

To my Maltese readers: this costs €6.50 and you can get it from selected outlets around Malta and Gozo.
