Soothing Dry Skin using Lotil Original Cream

It's been nearly two weeks since I last posted, and haven't those two weeks been eventful. I had so many new blog post ideas and I was hoping to take a ton of blog photos and even bash out a few blog posts too, but of course that never happened. All of the boys were down with a nasty cold so I wasn't feeling motivated at all, and then a while later, just as they were feeling better, I came down with it too, but worse. Honestly, I was a mess. I had a cold and my throat felt like I'd swallowed a bunch of knives. I lost my voice a few times, and every time I thought I was feeling better, I'd wake up the next day feeling worse for wear. Luckily I've been a okay for the last couple of days. Fingers crossed it stays that way. 

That aside, let's talk Dry Skin. A few years back, in my teen years I went through a stage where my skin was dry and itchy all the time. It came out of nowhere, and my god, it bugged me for so long. I went to at least two doctors to figure out what was going on as it was constant. The first was completely useless, and didn't help me at all. The second didn't give me any kind of diagnosis but instead prescribed me a cream called Zerobase, which worked wonders for me. I think it must've been at least a couple of months that I'd noticed a difference in my skin after using it. My skin wasn't dry and it was no longer itchy. It was a relief.

Now, a few years later I no longer use Zerobase for my skin as it isn't dry all the time like it used to be, and it doesn't feel itchy either. It only ever seems to go dry in the Winter months. When it comes to battling the dryness and making sure my skin is in tip top condition, I like to use a cream that's very hydrating, and sometimes heavy duty (if it's extremely bad). I've been using the Lotil Cream for a while now to see how it works for my skin. I have to admit I had never heard of the brand before being contacted to try it out, but I was excited to give it a go.

Lotil Cream has been used for over 100 years by many(isn't that insane)? It contains many emollients(Glyceryl Stearate and Glycerin to name a few) to rehydrate and soften dry and chapped skin. It also contains antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties to prevent infections too. As well as dry skin, it's been recommended to use for athletes foot and piles too(sorry, tmi).

Lotil Cream comes in four different sizes, but I only have two, a 114ml tub for £6.29, and a 50ml tube for £3.69. There's also a huge 500ml container with a pump dispenser which is perfect for family use and a smaller 30ml miniature tube too. You definitely get more for your money if you opt for the tub over the tube, but I like to alternate between the two. I like to delve into the tub after a warm bath, and slather it on, and then use the tube multiple times throughout the day as it's more accesible, plus you can easily just pop it into your handbag, and use it on the go too. 

As mentioned, I've used the cream for some time now. The winter months have really affected my skin. It's been severely dry in places, namely my elbows, lower legs and my chest area. 

Lotil Cream is a non greasy formula with zero fragrance so it doesn't irritate the skin at all. It absorbs into the skin so quickly too and it's very nourishing. It leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft, supple and my dry areas are soon gone after multiple uses. It has a very familiar smell but I can't quite pinpoint it. It does smell nice though.

 If you're suffering from dry skin, I'm sure you would love this. I can't recommend it enough. The cream is so affordable and it does its job in record time. You can purchase the Lotil Cream in the two sizes at Boots(the 50ml size here and the 114ml here). It's also available to purchase from Amazon too. 

Have you tried Lotil Cream before?
