My son and my husband’s side of the family all suffer from eczema, we’ve been dealing with our sons bad eczema since he was born and while it’s gotten a little better, it’s still fairly bad, especially in the winter. Currently we don’t use any kind of prescribed medication, an over the counter brand is doing it’s job so far. I don’t want to put him on steroid at this point since the over the counter stuff is working, I’m just hoping it’s something he’ll grow out of or we can manage without the prescriptions.
Neosporin is the #1 Doctor recommended brand of over-the-counter topical antibiotic ointments and now, their company is introducing a brand new line of skin care products called Neosporin Essentials that help those with eczema or atopic dermatitis.
Each of the 3 products in this new line contain Relipid formula which contains a lipid, humectant, emollient and botanical blend that helps to retain moisture that is essential for healthy looking skin! The product line includes Eczema Essentials Daily Moisturizing Cream, Moisture Essentials Daily Body Wash, and Eczema Essentials Anti-Itch Cream. All are fragrance-free and contain no antibiotics.
I’m always up for trying new lotions though to see how he does with them and how they help so when I had the opportunity to try the new Neosporin Essentials I was all for it.
We are always honest with our reviews and while the Neosporin did an ok job on my husband’s eczema but on our son it seemed to break him out even more. He’s sensitive to a lot of things and this is one of them unfortunately. I was really hoping it would help better than what we’re using now but for now we will be sticking with our current brand. I honestly hate to say anything bad about Neosporin simply for the fact that they make great products and we use a lot of those products but this one just didn’t work out for us, I do recommend trying it for yourself though because as we all know everyone is different and it could really help you.
I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Neosporin Essentials and received a product sample to facilitate my review, and a promotional item to thank me for participating. All opinions are 100% mine.
