Barefoot SOS Face & Body Rescue Cream, RRP £18 £15.70/100ml

If you saw my June purchases, then you may remember that I got this 25ml sample size product in the Naturisimo travel essentials discovery box. I decided to use it solely on my hands, as they were in pretty bad condition, with some help from my dermatitis!

The cream is quite thick, easily spread evenly over skin. At first I wasn't too keen on the scent, but I don't mind it now. It's quite botanical-smelling... if that makes sense?! With chickweed and burdock extracts, aimed to cool and soothe skin, it feels pleasant upon application and did not irritate my sensitive skin at all.

I was immediately impressed with this cream, as after just a few days of consistent use, I could see a huge difference in my skin's condition - it was healing quickly (see above photo)! With macadamia and evening primrose oils, it promises to deeply moisturise and restore parched skin, but I didn't feel that the moisturising properties were very long-lasting. Due to this, I wouldn't be able to use only this hand cream, as I need something a little more hydrating, which will last longer, and I also like a really rich hand cream for overnight use.

I would still be interested in purchasing a full-sized version of this cream, as it seems like a great way to heal and prevent dermatitis without the need for potent prescription products, although I would prefer it if they ditched the Phenoxyethanol, as this is an ingredient I prefer to avoid, where possible.
