Old Faithful: E45 Cream

For some bizarre reason, my skin becomes drier in spring and autumn than it does in the winter.

Whenever summer is around the corner, I have itchy, blotchy, red, and irritated skin that is crying for moisture one minute and breaking out the next one.

So after a month of this nonsense, I’d had enough and decided to go back to an old love of mine – E45 cream.

Years ago, a friend told me about this miracle product that contains paraffin and lanolin, and is supposed to help with skin troubles including dry flaky skin, eczema, itchy skin, dry psoriasis, and sunburn.

Honestly, the second I used this on the parched, sensitive skin of my hands and face, I could feel it work immediately. It doesn’t feel heavy or greasy on the skin and is absorbed quickly upon application. There is no particular scent to this, it just smells clean, in a way. Once I have applied this, my hands and face feel moisturized for the rest of the day, even after being rinsed with water.

I would recommend this to anyone who suffers from any of the above mentioned issues or has really, really dry skin in general. Just take caution not to use it too much, especially in really humid weather, or you might start getting little bumps all over your face.

For someone like me, after trying out multiple different moisturisers, E45 cream is what has ultimately come to my rescue.

You can check out their website here, and the cream is available for £2.29-£4.49 at Boots.
