I mentioned this product in my latest May & June 2014 Favourite & Empties video as one of my favourites, but I thought it deserved its own blog post because I’m truly loving it and have been using it obsessively since I’ve been flying around so much for work.
Essentially if you suffer from dry skin or eczema, this could be amazing for you, now hear me out. I don’t consider my eczema to be terribly bad, but when I flare up it can make my eyes look rather swollen. My skin becomes incredibly red, flaky, starts to crack and eventually bleeds. Ah, there’s a nice mental image for you!
For the most part I use a prescription ointment from my doctor which contains Cortisone, which is a steroid from what I understand. It’s amazing at turning my eczema riddled skin back to normal, BUT not good for long term use. Which isn’t great when you’re like me and get flare ups probably 1-2 times a week when you’re constantly flying. In the past I would just continuously use my ointment till my doctor warned me that I was in fact damaging my skin by doing so. However if I didn’t use the ointment, my skin would remain dry, red and very flaky. Not a great look and naturally extremely itchy.
So when I mentioned the trouble I’ve been experiencing, Uriage were kind enough to send me a tube of their CU-ZN+ Cream (plus a few other goodies to try). I didn’t expect much, I rarely do, but after extensive use it’s safe to say I love this cream.
With consistent use, I’ve actually found this cream to help reduce my eczema patches considerably, which has never happened to me before with any other product aside for my prescription creams. It doesn’t work as quickly as the ointment does, but because it doesn’t contain cortisone, which means I can use this every day without worrying about my skin! I only apply this on the affected areas, which means the rest of my skincare regime remains the same, perfect for me~
If you suffer from eczema, then certainly give this a go! I can’t say for sure it will work for everyone, all I can say is that it worked for me and I’m not turning back~
