The Best Eczema Soothing Products

I’m pretty sure if you are reading my blog posts for a very long time, you would already know that I have extremely dry skin and I suffer from eczema as well. It has been a lifelong battle and my skin gets very dehydrated during the wintertime. In today’s post, I wanted to share with you the products I’ve used and I’m using to combat eczema and dry skin.

Je suis sûr que si vous lisez depuis très longtemps les articles de mon blog, vous savez déjà que ma peau est extrêmement sèche et que je souffre également d’eczéma. La bataille a duré toute ma vie et ma peau est très déshydratée en hiver. Dans le post d’aujourd’hui, je voulais partager avec vous les produits que j’ai utilisés et que j’utilise pour lutter contre l’eczéma et la peau sèche.

I’ve probably used Septivon as a body wash for the majority of my life. It has been my face wash, body wash and hand sanitiser ever since I was little. It is technically an antiseptic solution used to kill bacteria but this was prescribed to me by my doctor to use as an all-rounder.

I stopped using it after I moved to the UK because I didn’t find it in local drugstores or at the chemist. You should have seen my face when I saw the bottle when I was working in the lab. I later on found out it was available online but it was difficult to get it shipped in the UK. Nevertheless, if you live in France go to your doctor and mention this product. It’s worth checking it out!

J’ai probablement utilisé Septivon comme nettoyant pour le corps pendant la majeure partie de ma vie. Cela a été mon lavage du visage, du corps et un désinfectant pour les mains depuis que j’étais petite. Il s’agit techniquement d’une solution antiseptique pour tuer les bactéries, mais mon médecin m’a recommandé de l’utiliser comme solution polyvalente.

J’ai arrêté de l’utiliser après mon déménagement au Royaume-Uni parce que je ne l’avais pas trouvé dans les pharmacies locales ou chez le pharmacien. Vous auriez dû voir mon visage lorsque j’ai vu la bouteille alors que je travaillais au laboratoire. J’ai découvert par la suite qu’il était disponible en ligne, mais il était difficile de le recevoir au Royaume-Uni. Néanmoins, si vous vivez en France, consultez votre médecin et mentionnez ce produit. Ça vaut le coup d’y aller!

All the skincare products I used back in France weren’t available here in the UK which is understandable because the majority of them were prescribed to me by my dermatologist but it was still frustrating since my eczema was such a huge struggle to me. I tried various body lotions over the past few years and to be honest I am yet to find one.

But the Eucerin Dry Skin Intensive Lotion is really good compared to the other lotions that are in the drugstore. It’s expensive and not on the affordable side, plus it’s really hard to get your hands on it. You either have to order it or buy it online but it helps with my eczema and doesn’t make it worse which is always a plus for me.

Tous les produits de soin pour la peau que j’utilisais en France n’étaient pas disponibles au Royaume-Uni, ce qui est compréhensible, car la plupart d’entre eux m’ont été prescrits par mon dermatologue, mais c’était frustrant, car mon eczéma était un véritable combat. J’ai essayé diverses crèmes pour le corps au cours des dernières années et, pour être honnête, je n’ai pas encore trouvé de solution.

Mais la lotion intensive pour la peau sèche de chez Eucerin est vraiment bonne comparée aux autres lotions présentes dans la pharmacie. C’est cher et pas abordable, en plus c’est vraiment difficile de mettre la main dessus. Vous devez le commander ou l’acheter en ligne, mais cela aide à soulager mon eczéma et ne l’empire pas, ce qui est toujours un avantage pour moi.

Sudocrem has been a brand that I’ve never heard about until recently. I saw people mentioning on social media and I’ve even asked my friends about it and it’s actually a great brand for dry skin! I’ve been applying their skincare cream to some eczema spots on my legs & tights and I must admit it’s not any other ointment or cream I’ve tried before.

It has definitely reduced the redness around the spots and those areas feel much softer was well. I’m thinking about using the Care & Protect cream when I have a rash, I’ll let you know on my Instagram stories if I see a difference!

Sudocrem est une marque dont je n’avais jamais entendu parler jusqu’à récemment. J’ai vu des gens mentionner sur les médias sociaux et j’en ai même interrogé mes amis. C’est en fait une excellente marque pour les peaux sèches! J’applique leur crème de soin de la peau sur des taches d’eczéma sur les jambes et les collants et je dois admettre que ce n’est pas une autre pommade ou crème que j’ai essayée auparavant.

Il a certainement réduit la rougeur autour des taches et ces zones se sentent beaucoup plus doux était bien. Je pense utiliser la crème Care & Protect quand j’ai une éruption cutanée, je vous tiens au courant sur mes histoires Instagram si je vois une différence!



This is a topical steroid and it’s only available with prescription therefore I would highly advise to consult your GP or dermatologist before using it. I thought it was worth mentioning it since it’s one of the main products I use over my inflamed skin to reduce the itchiness and redness. I usually apply it continuously for 4 to 5 days and my rashes would disappear.

Ceci est un stéroïde topique et il est uniquement disponible sur ordonnance. Je vous conseillerais donc vivement de consulter votre médecin ou votre dermatologue avant de l’utiliser. Je pensais que cela valait la peine d’être mentionné, car c’est l’un des principaux produits que j’utilise sur ma peau enflammée pour réduire les démangeaisons et les rougeurs. Je l’applique habituellement de manière continue pendant 4 à 5 jours et mes éruptions cutanées disparaissent.


As always, these are the products that I use and I’m yet to find the best moisturiser, hand cream and even lotion. Before using any products, consult your GP or dermatologist. Go for a consultation and they will help you out.

Comme toujours, ce sont les produits que j’utilise et je n’ai pas encore trouvé le meilleur hydratant, crème pour les mains et même la lotion. Avant d’utiliser des produits, consultez votre médecin de famille ou votre dermatologue. Allez pour une consultation et ils vous aideront.

  1. My son and I have eczema and dry skin apl year… I use Aveeno (for Eczema) with a dab of Elica for his feet and it makes it better and less itchy. As for me, I use grapeseed oil for my hands and it somehow lessens the itch… 😦

    1. I’ve tried Aveeno, I find it pretty similar to Eucerin! I have never tried grape seed oil though, I’ll definitely have a look into it. Thank you 💗

  2. I’ve had luck with Derma E Psorzema cream (not sure if it’s available in Europe/the UK). Some people also swear by Lush’s Dream Cream (I haven’t tried it yet). I enjoy the colder weather, but it wreaks havoc on dry skin.

  3. this post was so helpful! and came at a perfect time, too. my eczema has just flared up again in the last couple of weeks, and my hands have been in a shocking condition. I will have to try some of these products out! thanks for sharing xx

    1. So glad you found it helpful! My pleasure lovely ❤️ I hope you get to manage your eczema and keep it under control. Mine has just started 😭 xx

  4. I made a post recently on this exact same topic in which I mention I use Derma E’s vitamin cream (specific type) for my face. It’s worth checking out if you suffer from dryness prone to breaking out and tbh it is the only face cream that works for me. No other cream would moisturize the dry patches without causing breakouts or irritation. The eczema I have is all over the scalp area and the scalp scrub I was using made it flare even more :/ What shampoo/conditioner would you recommend? As always thank you for a valuable post 🙂

    1. I’ll definitely check it out, thank you for the recommendation! Oh no! I’m so sorry to hear that ❤️ I use the Head & Shoulders shampoo and conditioner. I’ve been using them ever since I was little and they are really good! My pleasure love ☺️

  5. I found Sudocrem is pretty good for eczema, but with it always on my hands it’s not the best product for me to use during the day! I love Aveeno cream though, it’s really gentle and does the job! I was recommended it by the pharmacist for my poorly hands a few years ago and I’ve never looked back! Xx

  6. Great post! I also have very dry skin but I never had eczema! Have you tried some natural products (moisturizers, etc.) ? I heard a lot of good feedbacks of people with severe eczema that got better by using cleaner products 😊
