This stuff is amazing!!

Dry winter skin got you down? Or are you suffering from eczema? Lucky for me, I get to experience both of these things, particularly in my hands during the winter months. I’ve tried multiple hand creams, but none seem to really do the trick. Enter La Roche-Posay’s Lipikar Baume AP. This stuff is magical, and not only does it work, prolonged use actually helped my eczema, moistened my skin, and didn’t dry it out like medicated creams did.

 

The Packaging

Flip-top cap

You get 200ml of amazing cream in this stand up tube. I love stand up tube formats because gravity becomes your friend and helps move the product downwards to the opening. The flip top cap is initially hard to open, but after a couple of tries, it’s quite easy. It’s sturdy, which means it’s not going to break off any time soon. If the 200ml tube is not your style, you can always go for the 400ml pump bottle.

 

The Product

Beautifully rich cream

It comes out of the tube as a thick, rich cream. Because of it’s richness, I use this just before I go to bed. It is the only hand cream I can use at night that will last the whole night and leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturized in the morning. Most other hand creams I’ve tried absorb well, but by the time I wake up, my hands are feeling dry again.

Depending on how dry my hands are, I use between a dime and nickel sized worth of cream, then work it into my hands. Keep in mind this takes time, so I use this time to give my hands and fingers a little massage. Yes, you will feel a bit of a greasy residue afterwards, but if you work it into your skin slowly, it will absorb well and leave you with a moisturizing layer. Do not wash your hands after this! Go straight to bed and let the cream work it’s magic. By the time you wake up in the morning, your hands will look and feel completely different from the night before.

 

The Verdict

This is a winter staple for me, and especially during times when I have eczema flare ups. I highly recommend this product, especially for night time use! It is working wonders on me, and the Mr is starting to use it here and there when his hands get dry. Pick up a tube and try it out!
