I posted about a month ago that I was suddenly in my 40s suffering from eczema. Unlike my kids and the rest of my family, I seemed to be immune to this dreaded ailment of life. I was highly annoyed.
Anyway I was first introduced to the Eau Thermale Avène brand via some blogger posts. I was keen to try on kids but voila here I was needed a solution myself.
So I got my hands on the newest XeraCalm A.D & Cicalfate range and first tested on myself. And much like magic, my skin was clear in less than 2 week. I am still using it.
I then used the extensive range on my almost 2 year old daughter Maya who had eczema since birth.
The results were nothing short of amazing but let’s start at the beginning with a review on each of the products we used over the past few weeks.
Firstly I fell in love with the Eau Thermale Avène Thermal Spring Water which I use for everything. Growing up in the hood, all moms usually have one type of medication for everything, like one that just works for all sickness. This is how I feel about this product.
I used it when Maya had nappy rash last week, it worked. I used as a makeup finishing spray, it held. Used on my fizzy hair, it calmed it. Cooling Spray on a hot Summer’s day, it refreshed me. My teenage son’s acne face, it soothed the itch. It’s just a WOW this spray.

Next we alternated the Eau Thermale Avène XeraCalm A.D Cleansing Oil and the Eau Thermale Avène XeraCalm Ultra Rich Cleansing Bar. I used the cleaning oil on my body and the cleansing bar on my face. Another two great products I must say. I love the fact that they don’t have a real odour. I am not a fan of perfumes face washes. My face looks more radiant and feels a lot more smooth. Please see my Instagram pics of late for a better idea of my clear skin.

Next we use the Eau Thermale Avène XeraCalm A.D Lipid Replenishing Balm every day. Love love love. Goodbye eczema for Maya and goodbye to my dark marks.

I used the Eau Thermale Avène Cicalfate Repair Cream mainly on Maya’s cheeks and forehead (her worse affected areas). Again 2 weeks later, eczema gone. This is my fav product in the range for Maya. Already stocked up for next winter.

It’s always great to test a brand and it works. Both Maya and I are huge believers in the brand and will continue to use it.
