Consslightly more expensive than other brands

Suffering regularly from dry skin on my face and arms, I've been hunting for years for a cream that will clear it up in both places, without being too irritating, as some creams can be when I apply them around my eyes, and without being too greasy. Many of the creams I've tried have had one or...

An E-number that’s recommended by the Doctor E45 is one of those products that seems like it has been around forever but was actually developed in the 1950’s. Since then it has been a trusted product and is known for being gentle and effective. So when I was searching Boots for the...

E45 Cream review Introduction I get very dry skin in the winter months. I think it’s because of the combination of the cold and the wind so my skin looks very run down, tired and it does not feel very nice to touch. I started to use face wash and moisturisers they seemed to work well and make my...

Consmake sure you don't let small children eat it

My poor toddler has very dry hands at the moment, and we're not sure if it's just the cold weather that's been affecting her delicate skin, or whether she is going to be prone to dry skin. The other day the skin around her knuckles cracked and looked quite sore, so I was scrabbling around for...

bought this recently after my holiday from Boots, as I burnt my shoulders quite badly and even though I was using aloe vera gel to cool it down and soothe it, the skin still went very dry and the aloe vera was not moisturising enough for me. I was recommended this E45 cream by a lady working in...

E45 is another wonder product as are many other products manufactured by Boots. Boots developed E45 many years ago, it was approximately the 1950’s when it was developed and it is still their own product to this day and is manufactured on a daily basis so it is still doing very well. Crookes...

While some of the skin on my face and body can sometimes fall into the "dry" category, I don't generally suffer what you'd call a dry skin condition. This changed a while ago though as I became aware of a dry patch developing underneath my chin. At first, this was literally just dry skin so I...
