Ever since Ellie was a newborn she has suffered with dry, eczema prone, sensitive skin and regularly has breakouts. She gets it from her Dad. Her skin becomes very sore and itchy and can feel quite leathery at its worst. We’ve tried lots of creams in the past and although they all seem to work in the short term, eventually her skin becomes immune to it and it makes no difference.
We have very kindly been gifted MooGoo’s Soothing MSM Moisturiser to try out and have been using it for just over a week now and i’ve been really surprised by the results in such a short amount of time! The moisturiser is suitable for babies and adults and we’ve all been fighting over it in our house!
First of all, since Ellie’s early diagnosis of CMPI i’ve always been weary of creams that contain ingredients such as cow’s milk and other dairy products. We are lucky that her CMPI doesn’t affect her too much now and she is able to tolerate more dairy products but I still look for products that are dairy free. Despite the name “MooGoo” their products including their MSM Moisturiser is dairy free which is great for us! Their products are free of Paraffin, Paraben and Phenoxyethanol which can be found in other creams suitable for babies and are completely natural.
Recently Ellie’s eczema and dry skin has flared up, due to the spring/summer weather we’ve been having and although she’s got a steroid cream prescribed I try not to use that very often so I reached for our sample of MSM moisturiser and after a few days it has started to calm down, it’s less itchy and doesn’t stink when we apply it (which other creams can do). It’s really simple to apply; apply to damp skin after a bath and then as often as required. This has now become as much as a routine to her as anything else she loves the independence of rubbing it in herself too which I feel content in the knowledge it is safe for her to do.
When applied it’s left our skin feeling refreshed, moisturised and so soft! I don’t suffer with dry skin or eczema but have been using the cream on my face and it’s so much softer and feels great! It smells amazing too, with ingredients such as sweet almond oils and coconut oils as well as honey and aloe vera you can just imagine how great it smells on your skin!
I will definitely be using MooGoo again and would 100% recommend it to anyone wanting a lightweight moisturiser!
