Battling Winter Eczema Flare ups with Polysporin Eczema Essentials #EczemaAndMe

Polysporin Eczema Essentials
I have spent most of my life searching for skin care products to relieve my many skin issues.  A combination of sensitive skin (sensitive to fragrance and chemicals), skin easily damaged by cold and other environmental factors, and full out eczema flare ups have also plagued my daughter since birth.  There are a few daily tricks we use to cope with our sensitive skin. For example, we don't take hot showers because they dry your skin out even more, and we try to use scent free laundry detergents.

Though naturally skeptical, I was excited to receive a care package consisting of three new Polysporin Eczema Essentials products:
Polysporin Eczema Essentials Daily Wash, (For all ages)
Polysporin Eczema Essentials Daily Moisturizing Cream, (For all ages)
Polysporin Eczema Essentials 0.5% Hydrocortisone Anti-Itch Cream for eczema flare ups. (For ages 2 years plus)
This is my daughter's arm before using Polysporin Daily Moisturizing Cream.
These red spots were visible on her sides and hips as well. 
Her elbow creases on both arms were the worst spots at the time, so I started by photographing those. She complained that they were terribly itchy during the day. Scratching destroys your skin even more 
so I decided it was time to use our new cream.  I personally don't have any spots I'm willing to display since they are in intimate areas.
Polysporin Daily Moisturizing Cream
"Suitable for everyday use. For the daily management of eczema-prone skin.
  • Restores healthier looking skin in just 3 days by:
  • Reducing redness, swelling & scaling
  • Clinically proven to improve symptoms of eczema skin in 3 days, with continued improvement over 2 weeks
  • Reduce itch after just one application
  • Goes beyond ordinary moisturizing daily lotions to relieve dryness, itch and irritation due to eczema
  • Helps to strengthen and restore your skin’s natural barrier function
  • Unique RELIPID™ formula contains a lipid, humectant, emollient and botanical blend to help retain moisture essential for healthy looking skin"
I also used the Eczema Essentials Daily Body Wash on myself, retailing at approximately $14 for a 296 ml bottle.  Knowing that it is soap free was a good selling point for me. I find that I need to use less Polysporin Daily Moisturizing Cream since using the Daily Body Wash is giving me clean skin without drying out my skin.  
Though the itch was soothed immediately after the first use,
 the red scaly spots on both arms, and her torso
have disappeared fully after 10 days of use.
Verdict: The Polysporin Daily Moisturizing Cream comes in a 165 ml tube and retails for approximately $16. I will continue to use this on myself and my four year old daughter. The cream is thick, yet smooths evenly into our skin, removing the itch and doesn't feel greasy. My girl will let me use this cream after every bath, and said "it doesn't smell bad like the medicine one." I will continue to use the Polysporin Daily Body Wash, and my hubby will use the Hydrocortisone Anti-Itch Cream on his own winter skin patches. He insists that men don't use lotion, but he will use tiny amounts of this cream to relieve his own eczema flare ups.
