With all of my eczema issues there have only been two products I've found to work on it and clear it up, Dr Organics Manuka Honey, and Balm Balm Lip Balm (I use it on the eczema on my eyelids and under-eye). Although they're both fantastic, neither of them are moisturisers and I was struggling to find a natural moisturiser that wouldn't irritate my skin. Then I found Moogoo, and their Soothing MSM Cream. To say it's been a life saver is an understatement.
It was when I was in Australia back in April, and I'd seen this Moogoo range in all of the pharmacies and beauty shops there. On my last day I eventually decided to go for it and get some to bring back, after reading some great reviews online. I went for the Soothing MSM Cream rather than the Eczema & Psoriasis Cream, as the Eczema & Psoriasis Cream is more of an ointment than a moisturiser.
How cute is this packaging!? The 75ml airless pump bottle comes in a really cute cardboard packaging that looks like a milk carton. I'd suggest this over the larger pot of it, as it's just more hygienic considering the natural ingredients.
This moisturising cream, along with the Manuka Honey Cream has been my saviour. I use Moogoo twice daily all over my face, and it moisturises well, and repairs any damage recent eczema outbursts have caused. It smells milky, which I quite like as it smells natural, yet is suitable for those who are allergic to milk (EDIT: please note not all Moogoo products are suitable for those with milk allergies, only select ones). It's a very light cream that soaks in really quickly leaving the skin lovely and soft.
For eczema you can re-apply as much as needed. I use the Manuka Honey for when it gets really bad and needs an intense thick moisturiser, but for every day and when the skin is just a bit dry, the Moogoo is perfect and clears it up within a couple of days no problem!
The Moogoo Soothing MSM Cream is completely natural, paraffin free, and paraben free, and they don't test on animals. It's made in Australia, but you can buy it in the UK via their UK Website.
Ingredients; Water (Purified), Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Squalene (Olive), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Dimethyl Sulfone (MSM or Organic Sulfur), Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Vera), Allantoin, Piroctone Olamine, Polysorbate 60 (Food Grade Emulsifier), Honey, Apple Cider Vinegar, Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract.
Although this list looks scary, if you head to the product page on their website it breaks the ingredients down and tells you what it all is in 'normal' terms!
I can't recommend Moogoo highly enough, and I also find it really great for break-outs and pimples, it's helped clear mine up a lot and I always notice if I stop using the cream as they come back with a vengeance. Also I'm going to do a page on my blog soon with a big list/guide to products to use if you have Eczema, I've found so many great ones so I can't wait to share them all with my fellow sufferers!
If you're in Australia you can buy the Moogoo range in pharmacies, natural beauty/health shops, and online. If you're in the UK, you can buy it on the Moogoo UK Website for just £12 a bottle, or from select stockists which you can find here.
