"...he also prescribed me some Oilatum and some special soap to help get rid of my dry skin. I went to the pharmacy and then immediately had a bath. Whilst the bath was filling I sat down and looked at the back of the packed. I have tried the stuff before but not for about two years, when I last used it, but not properly. I found that it is suitable for everyone, but babies should have a smaller dose and you must not swallow it. Preparing it... What ..." Read review

a relief from the itch

Advantageshelps sooth skin

Disadvantagesvery oily

"...child. I have found the Oilatum bath formula to be very helpful. I put some in my bath water or if i’m having a shower I use it like a shower gel. I have been using it for 3 years now and wouldn’t change to anything else it really does help me. It soothes my skin and moisturises it so that it isn’t so dry and itchy and helps prevent your skin drying out, and it leaves my skin feeling very soft and smooth. You can buy it in bottles of 150ml or 300ml. ..." Read review

Good old Oilatum.

AdvantagesPuts moisture back into skin

DisadvantagesA little bit oily which some people may not like.

To use Oilatum, 1-3 capfuls should be poured into an 8-inch bath of water (a little less for infants and children). The Oilatum disperses into the water giving a milky effect. After bathing for 10-20mins, the skin should then be gently pat dry with a ..." Read review

Expensive but worth it

AdvantagesHydrates your skin and leaves you silky smooth

DisadvantagesExpensive

"My Mum suffers with Arthritis and has been on steroids for 30 plus years and they have made her skin thin and very flaky, no matter how much moisturising cream she uses it doesn’t help. Recently she was in Hospital and was showered and bathed with a product called “Oilatum” and they advised her to carry on using this to soften and protect her skin. She got it on prescription from her Doctor and has never needed to use moisturiser since then. You ..." Read review

"...I noticed a bottle of Oilatum Bath Formula,I had a quick read of the box and it sounded ideal to put into Jacks bath. I paid £4.95 for a 150ml bottle which I didnt think was too bad of a price. It comes in a white and blue box which states Oilatrum Bath Formula for itchy,irritating dry skin conditions and suitable for eczema. The bottle is also white and blue and states the same as the box. The actual liquid contains an Emollient Mineral Oil ..." Read review
