Neosporin Eczema Essentials Review – Frugal Novice

Neosporin Eczema Essentials Review

When I first heard about the opportunity to review the Neosporin Eczema Essentials kit, I had the boys in mind. In the fall and winter, the backs of their arms and legs can have mild eczema flare-ups, which in themselves can be annoying – I mean, who likes to be itchy? Well, it turns out their skin is pretty clear right now (wahoo!) but as I’ve gotten older I’ve started getting some patches of eczema on my legs, arms, and even the top of my right foot. It’s really irritating, so this kit couldn’t have arrived at a better time for me to try it.

In the past I’ve tried several different lotions, all of which provide temporary relief but don’t get rid of the dry patches, so I was really curious to see how the Neosporin products would work. First, I have to say I love that it has three parts. The body wash is great, because it’s somewhat preventative. Some soaps I’ve used seem to cause drying, but the Neosporin body wash is gentle and not irritating at all. The daily cream is a good maintenance tool for keeping skin healthy, and the anti-itch cream is absolutely AWESOME for when you do get a flare-up that’s just driving you nuts. The spot on my foot can make me bonkers, but the cream was a lifesaver for that.

I thought about taking a photo of my leg, but, um, ew. I don’t really want to broadcast a rashy spot on my shin for everyone to analyze. Just trust me when I say that these dry patches were there, and the Neosporin truly has made a difference in the quality of my skin. I’m even more excited to have this for the boys to use, because they have a little less willpower than I do when it comes to scratching itchy spots (and that’s not saying much!) so I love the idea of stopping the itchiness before it gets annoying to them. I also, having used Neosporin since I was a child, feel really good about its reputation and products. My faith in the brand continues after trying their Eczema Essentials line – yet another quality, effective product! I’d definitely recommend giving it a try if you or anyone in your family deals with eczema. Your skin will thank you.

PS – Their site even has printable coupons up right now!

Note: I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Neosporin Essentials and received a product sample to facilitate my review, and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

    I have used Neosporin in the past for cuts and the like…when I heard that they had a cream for eczema…I had by coincidence a flare up of my eczema…I only have it on my face…which I never had it until around 2006…
    I cannot say enough about this cream…since my eczema affects my eyelids, under my eyes, cheeks and the left side of my chin…i used on my face the first night…next day there was improvement of about 30%, used it again the next day there was 50% improvement…used it for the third day and it was 90% improved….I now use this moisturizer daily instead of my usual one – I am in my 60’s and my skin looks so smooth and healthy.
    Great product. I would recommend to anyone!
