Dry Skin Saviours: Lotil Skincare

Tuesday, 5 May 2015

It's no secret that dry skin is the bane of my life 
and it feels like a never-ending battle. 
Recently I've been using some great products 
that have been helping my thirsty skin......... 

Lotil skincare review
Lotil original cream review

I suffer from dry, cracked skin all year round and finding good products that deeply nourish and moisturise my skin is a very hard task. I've heard of the brand Lotil before and I've often seen it whilst wandering down the aisles of Boots (what's new there, ha! #BootsAddict) but I've never managed to try any of their products. Recently, I've been putting their 'Original Cream' and lip balm to the test.

Lotil Original Cream* -  The consistency is kind of similar to E45 - A thick gel-like formula. When first applied it can make your skin feel a little sticky/tacky but it goes away once it's completely absorbed. It's a little bit harder to rub in than your everyday body lotion but once it's rubbed in it's instantly absorbed without leaving a greasy residue - No waiting around 10 minutes for it to dry, you can jump straight into your clothes! Fantastic! It transforms dry, cracked skin leaving it feeling smooth and silky soft. A little bit goes a long way with this so it's lasting a long time.

My skin can become very red and sore but this cream was so soothing and didn't irritate my skin in the slightest. It claims to be good for skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. Due to the soothing formula, it's also great for cuts. Recently a new pair of shoes cut into my heel (fashion problems!) and it was so sore but once I applied this it instantly soothed the cut and calmed down the redness. It has quite a strong medical scent but it's not overpowering and it doesn't linger on the skin. This tub costs €9.99 but it also comes in a 50ml tube which would be a lot handier for my handbag.

Lotil Lip Balm* - I've also been using their lip balm and the mini sized version of the 'original cream' which is handy for throwing into my handbag. I've been loving the lip balm which provides long-lasting moisture and leaves the lips feeling nourished and soft. It has a creamy formula that glides onto the lips easily. It also has an SPF of 30 which will be handy for the Summer months. 

I thoroughly enjoyed using these and I'll be running out to Boots to repurchase them when they run out as I was very impressed with the results. I've been using them non-stop for just over three weeks and I haven't seen a dry, flaky patch since I've incorporated them into my routine. Move over E45 there's a new favourite in my life!
