E45 Competition

Lately my poor son has had quite sore and tender hands, the weather plays havoc with his skin.  He does not dry his hands particularly well so this is something I am trying to drum into him; we have also taken to using skincare products afterwards because it was upsetting him having such discomfort.  He even got to the point he stopped taking soft toys to bed as he thought the fluffy ones were making his hands worse.  I felt really sorry for the poor love.

Fortunately with lots of cream and a better hand drying routine, he is starting to see an improvement, the whole section is almost cleared up entirely.  But its very common with young children, my friend’s daughter has a painful section on her face under her mouth where she keeps licking its very red and raw.  Fortunately it’s amazing how quickly they recover with the right product for their skin.


My eldest at the moment has itchy skin on his chest; I think something must have irritated him, so in an effort to stop him manically itching I have been covering him in cream instead.  It seems to have done the trick as he settles off to sleep now and leaves it in peace.  I am not quite sure what set him off this time but it must have been some form of contact dermatitis.  I know when we changed laundry detergent before now he had a bad reaction; since we have stuck with Fairy it has been much better.

I have teamed up with E45 to giveaway one of their standard bottles and one of their overnight hand creams to two lucky winners!  If you struggle to comment on my blog I am also giving away a set to one winner over on my facebook page.  But for the competition here just fill in the form below by the 15th of February.

Win a set of two E45 products
