Bonjour lecteurs! For once, I got a lovely parcel in the post last week! Not for Baba to try but for moi! Indeed, I signed up to the very difficile task to try the Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm. I bet you what I am about to say will ring a bell to many of you! Comes the winter and my skin is so dry, it can be very uncomfortable and itchy. Especially my hands and sometimes my face. To help, I decided to try this cream and here is for you my thoughts with #MyAquaphor Challenge in collaboration with Britmums.
So, cette crème c’est quoi?
Basically, the Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm is a cream to give you some extra help when you have some dry to very dry skin. Formulated with only seven ingredients, Aquaphor is so gentle on your skin you can even try it on sensitive baby skin. And even in the nappy area if your little ones get irritated.
Once applied, the cream creates a breathable protective barrier. First introduced in the US market in 1925, the formula is now quite famous for its benefits.
First Impressions about Aquaphor
As soon as it arrived, I had a quick look and put some on my hands. The cream is quite rich so that you do not need much for it to work.
It smells good and you can feel the difference pretty quickly. After a few applications, my hands felt less dry and actually comfier.
The composition is quite rich and it is such a nice feeling every night after doing the washing-up.
I don’t know about you but I am un peu over-obsessed with my hands! Especially in the winter, I tend to wash my hands very often! But then they get dry and not nice to touch. Pas de problème with the Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm!
Next to my handwash in the kitchen, it reminds me to apply it afterwards so that my hands remain soft and less irritable.
So Many Uses!
But eventually, I was not the only one to get to use it! My feet got some benefits of it too as well as Baba!
He can sometimes have a few dry patches and this really helped! I am always trying to use the minimum of products on him as he is only a toddler. The Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm was quite handy for the occasion.
Actually, I like it so much I also make sure to pack it in our bag when we are out and about for an adventure! It is so good to have with us at all times! Especially when it is windy like that. It is such a relief on my face and hands!
Mission accomplie! I have now completed #MyAquaphor Challenge and I am very happy I decided to give it a go! This cream is very nourishing and will be for sure well used over the next few months!
On my night table for a quick treat before going to bed or in my bag whenever I feel the need for a bit of smoothness, Aquaphor will be there!
Have you ever heard about it or even tried it yourself? If you are looking for some new ointment to try within your family skin-care routine, have a look! It is really nice and makes such a difference!

Sounds like a great challenge so enjoy! I use Eucerin Aquaphor myself as I suffer from eczema and find it very soothing!
my daughter suffered so badly with eczema as a child, it was heartbreaking, bless her, products are so much better nowadays
I too have dry skin and always worse in the winter. I’ve not heard of this product would like to try some
I’d certainly like to try these out since I have a lot of skin issues, especially at this time of the year.
Good review. Never heard of this brand before.
My neice will be impressed – idea for a Christmas present thanks
New one for me – would love to try.
I usually use Sudocrem or E45
Must give it a try.
