Summary
I am currently suffering an eczema flare which is very annoying and uncomfortable at the same time. During these occasional flares I return to certain favourite products that I rely on, as I don't dare run the risk of inflaming my skin further. The doctor generally advises to put nothing in the bath and I feel particularly miserable and hard-done-by as members will know I am extremely partial to fragrance and pampering.

Oilatum makes bathtime for me less of a punishment and more of a pampering when nothing else can be used to cleanse my skin. It can be used in the bath in the place of scented bathfoams and oils and makes the feeling of the water feel silky against the skin as it is slightly oily. In addition it can be used on a cloth on wet skin for cleansing which means that a second product is not needed. As the bottle comes in different sizes it is possible to choose the one that is right for you (I use the smaller size). The bottle has a neat, hour glass shape which fits comfortably in the palm of the hand for dispensing the product without slippage. The bottle would benefit from a dispensing insert, as it is easy to overuse the product without this.

Although technically unscented, the product does have a faint soap scent, which is very light and makes you feel less hard-done-by during this time of rationing the products used. I generally pat my skin dry after emerging from the bath, so as not to irritate my skin and also not to remove the residue of oil which helps to lock in the moisture during the day. I don't think it would be enough without use of a moisturiser, but it certainly helps my skin being less dry, sore and itchy.

The best part is that this product does not irritate my angry looking skin and helps me look forward to bathing rather than dreading it.
