“Both my son & I suffer from dry, sore, chapped skin due to a combination of hand-washing, sanitiser, cold weather & hard water, & my son’s hands have recently been cracking open & bleeding, which has been pretty painful.

We both tried a pot of @lotil_cream Original, which claims to be “seriously good for all dry skin”. As soon as we removed the lid & cover a reassuring smell agreed with both of us. We are both a little old fashioned in our product use & tend to use products which are not heavily fragranced, because we have both had skin reactions to those types. Lotil smells comfortingly like something my Grandma would have used on sore skin & leaves you with long lasting fresh & clean smelling skin. A little of this cream goes a long way, but when you dip your finger in, it’s like touching velvet. I smoothed some onto my son’s hands & it felt instantly soothing & healing. Whilst the cream seems thick, it absorbs really quickly into your skin with no greasy residue, just a gentle antiseptic smell that we couldn’t resist sniffing!
Recommended use is frequently, particularly after washing, before bed & in cold weather. Despite us both using this pot daily, there is still a lot of cream left because it only takes a small amount to work wonders. My son has also been taking the tubes of the Original to school with him & using them after every hand wash.
The tubes come in handy 30ml or 50ml sizes, which are perfect for a school- or handbag & the packaging is discreet, which is something that is important to my 10 year old son in front of his friends! The Original is also available in a 500ml pump dispenser, which I shall be buying & leaving in the bathroom for family use.
Whilst my hands were not as bad as my son’s, they were very dry & parched looking & I have absolutely loved using this cream. The emollients within really do an amazing job of gently rehydrating, smoothing & improving your skin. Highly recommend.” -Rachel
