We spoke to these real parent testers to get their review...
How did this product make your life easier?
Zumra: I love this cream. I'd recommend it, but I know everyones skin is different. Like most others I've tried various creams for dry skin patches and flare ups. I previously used Diprobase which I always thought had a bit of a stale smell. This doesn't have any fragrance, and I'd say this is slightly greasier, but have found it got rid of patches that I've had for months in a few days. I bought the small tube first just to test it out, which is now in my handbag, and have the pump at home for more regular use.
Charlotte: This product makes my life as a mum easier because it’s an easy product to use. It’s easy to access and very easy to apply. It comes in a lovely size tube with an easy opening of flipping the lid. No awkward screw cap or tub lids to contend with when you’ve got slippery fingers and a fidgeting toddler.
Shilpa: This emollient comes in a handy tube that is easy to fit into changing bags or handbags. A small quantity is enough to moisturise a large surface area of skin therefore a small tube will last a long time. Simple packaging and design makes the product easily identifiable from the rest of the products on the market.
Would you recommend this to other parents?
Vicky: This product is easy to use, and is a very effective product. It moisturises easily and can be used for a variety of different uses. The squeezey tube means that it is easy to dispense the right amount and it spreads easily onto the skin. The product is useful for both adults and children and helps to moisturise and heal.
Shilpa: I love the fact it's odourless, alot of the comparable products on the market that moisturise this well are often strongly scented. A small amount of product leaves the skin well hydrated for hours. I would definitely recommend this product to fellow mothers for this reason. I have been using this product for a month so far and there's still a considerable amount left.
Charlotte: I would recommend this to my mummy friends with confidence that they would be as impressed as I am! It’s easy to use, no harsh fragrance, applies beautifully and soaks in quickly. I’m happy to use this on my toddlers sensitive skin as well as my own. Although I don’t suffer with dry skin, it’s made a huge difference to the softness and has helped with small spots I sometimes get on my upper arms.
Would you choose this product above all others on the market?
Vicky: This is a high quality product at a good price. The size of tube means that it lasts for a long time and only a small amount is needed for each application. It is a very versatile product and can be used for a variety of things. This product stands out because it is such good value for money for what is received.
Zumra: I wouldn’t necessarily choose this over all other similar products on the market. It’s definitely up there with the top brands. It would come down to price for me overall, it’s great value for money but I would usually go for something I know I like that is on offer or the cheapest of my favourites.
Shilpa: I love this product for four simple reasons, it's well priced, incredibly well hydrating for dry eczema-prone skin, it's odourless and a small quantity lasts a long way. As a mother I think these are important factors when considering a product, I would recommend it to other mums and friends alike as it wasn't a product I was familiar with.
What changes would you make to this product?
Vicky: I received a small tube but a big pump dispenser bottle of this would be really useful, especially for larger families. There are no things that I would really change about the product, as it does exactly what it is advertised to do. A great product at a good price which is effective and easy to use every day.
Charlotte: The only thing I would change about this product would be the design. I think it’s quite dated and probably wouldn’t catch my eye in the supermarket. I’m not overly keen on the bright blue colour. It could do with being a bit more subtle but also needs something to stand out from others. Also a miniature version would be handy for the baby’s changing bag or the parent's bag.
Shilpa: This product wasn't one that I was familiar with and perhaps would overlook it on the shelves with its simple packaging and branding. I perhaps would change the appearance as it' s quite bland looking. I also hadnt heard of the brand before so perhaps it needs more marketing. However I was more than happy with the product itself.
