I was recently asked to participate in a marketing survey for a line of products manufactured by the Theraplex Company.
My skin in the wintertime goes bonkers. Eczemic patches pop up, I scratch like a flea-infested dog, and stay generally miserable with very dry skin.
The products I tried were the Clear Lotion (which can be used as a cleansing agent as well), the Hydro Lotion, the Emollient and the Exfoliating Emollient.
They all worked "wicked good" to quote a friend from way up north. In fact, if this stuff worked any better on my dry skin, it might prove to be the elusive Fountain of Youth.
Nah - it didn't eradicate 50 years of sun worship and living in Texas, but it did relieve my worst symptoms of winter dry itch.
Applying the Exfoliating Emollient to my cracked heels at night after a bath, I slipped on a pair of cotton footies and slept with a heavy coating. I only had enough sample for 4 nights, but wow! Big difference.
Yep, my lone complaint is I wished I had a tub of this magic stuff to submerse in!
Does not leave the skin sticky or oily at all. Now, I will admit it takes a while for the heavier Emollient cream to fully absorb, and for a short time, my hands were a tad sticky. The Emollient cream is for really hard core dry skin, and is terrific on eczema.
Days after I ran out of the samples, my skin still retained a lot of softness and moisture retention - an unexpected effect.
Theraplex is a little more expensive than your average skin care product, but a little goes a long way and it is fragrance free - a boon to those of us sensitive to perfumes in cosmetics.
Definitely a product I will continue to use and have no problem recommending it to you!
