Friday Fave

I’ve hesitated to post this particular fave just because it’s from a membership only online store. But I love this product so much I can’t not make it known.

This lotion has seriously changed my life. I’m not exaggerating. In late 2015 I visited a dermatologist to discuss my super dry, very itchy skin. As in I used to claw my arms bloody in my sleep due to itching. She could never pinpoint the cause. I already used scent free detergent and soap, no perfume, etc. The only things that kept me from scratching to my bones was to use the super strong topical steroid betamethasone and ice packs. Back then I was going through two tubes of betamethasone cream per month just on my arms. That’s a lot of steroid.

Sometime in late 2016 one of my Facebook friends posted about an online grocery store where members could buy science based, non-toxic health and wellness items as well as personal care and household cleaning items. I scrolled on by. I’d just spent a horrible four months involved in a MLM company and wanted nothing that sounded similar.

But she kept posting. Not pushing. Not selling. Just saying, get info, no pressure.

After she posted about something she bought for her elderly father that helped his super dry skin, I messaged her. She sent me the info, but I still didn’t join.

Finally, in January 2017 the online store had a $1 membership special with a money back guarantee. I decided to try it out. I bought one of their smaller packages with some cleaning supplies and laundry supplies as well as a bottle of this lotion. (In the coming months, I will post about the cleaning supplies and laundry detergent.)

But, OMG, this lotion y’all. With the first application I knew it was worth joining the shopping club just for this lotion. Since using this lotion I have not even used one whole tube of betamethasone cream. I realize my results are mine, no one else’s. Please don’t mistake me here. But there is science behind the formulation.

I can tell you, I do not buy any other brand of lotion. I won’t use any other brand of lotion.

I have not woken up with bloody scratches on my arms since switching to this lotion. I’m no longer using large amounts of super strong topical steroid.

For me, this lotion is truly amazing and one of my very favorite products ever.
