I should really listen to my mum. She suggested I try Aqueous Cream for my eczema. It’s really cheap, she said. You can use it as a soap, she said. Use it as a soap? That’s ridiculous. Well, no, apprently not.
It cost me £1.49 for a big tub (which is probably going to last me a year at least) and it does indeed make for fab soap. Washing my hands is suddenly not the excruiating experience it used to be – it’s actually rather pleasant. And it’s helped my Pompholyx eczema loads.
Sorry mum – you did know best.
Whilst I was buying up supplies from the online pharmacist I decided to try this dry shampoo stuff too. It gets lots of good reviews from people who use it because they’re on the run – not just people who are too knackered to wash their hair when they’re getting unexpected visitors or venturing out and have used all their energy already.
I had a squirt of Batist Dry Shampoo Tropical today – my hair wasn’t totally minging but looking a bit limp and on the turn. Looking decidely deshevelled. And it went “pooooof” – all lifted and not limp and not greasy. Weird! My hair looked a bit lighter – probably because I hadn’t brused it out properly but being blonde it doesn’t matter too much to me. And I like the tropical smell personally so I even whiff a bit cleaner than I did when I got up. Yeah!
I’m not on commission – I’m only linking to where I bought stuff in case anyone wants to know more and that site has been good value. I like to get my hayfever tablets from them as they are so cheap on the generic brand stuff. And I’ve bought all sorts of stuff from them.
So I have two positives to share with you. This is to make up for (and hide) my distinct tired and grumpy self which has a big fat dose of M.E. plus PMT complete with cravings that I can’t act on because my IBS is flaring and hayfever with scratching throat and sore eyes. Grumble. But at least I have exotic hair and clean hands.
