Following my post about potty training and the perils of trying to control an eczema ravaged little body, the wonderful peeps at Skinnies UK read my plight, and god love them, sent me some of their fab products to trial!
The fabulous package sent to us included:
- Silk top
- Silk leggings
- Silk gloves
- Silk socks
- Laundry liquid detergent
- Catalogue of their range of products
Pulling the products out of their packaging, you can not only see but also feel how much kinder they are to skin, whether the skin is sore and affected by eczema or psoriasis or not. They are quite literally silky smooth, and thin enough to seem as if you have nothing extra underneath your normal clothes.
First impressions are most definitely very positive!
I have been waiting for a time when Callum really needed some help with his skin, particularly in trying to stop him scratching, so that I could give the products a 'true' review. Simply trialling them wouldn't have given me a real picture of how helpful they can be.
Having been out of a body suit for a couple of weeks now, his skin is far from brilliant, as he now has easy access to scratch it constantly. There are quite a few patches of angry, red skin which we are attempting to control with a number of different steroid creams.
So, it seems the perfect time for 'Operation Skinnies' to be deployed this weekend!
I will report back our findings next week, and also confirm how Callum feels about them.
Initial reaction from Callum.... 'mine new things are lovely Mummy', 'mine want them now'
.... good sign so far!
(NB: I have not been paid for this post, Skinnies UK sent me the product to help with our situation, and in return I promised to write a review on how we got on)
