Skinfix - Eczema Balm


When it comes down to medicated products, there isn't much option for Cruelty-Free options when it comes to Eczema care. But lately I found out that they have a few products from a Canadain called Skinfix that has Cruelty Free products, I'm still using the medicated wash that isn't Cruelty free because it soothes my bad spots this year and I have them everywhere or found the Skinfix wash to try to see if it works to compare.  I've had Eczema ever since I was a baby when I younger and since now that I'm getting older the patches have gotten bigger and more stress driving that all my skin hurts and I have achy huge patches everywhere.  But this balm is super thick and I put it on my patches that are giving me some issues before adding my eczema lotion.

Do any of you suffer from Eczema...? What do you guys use to help sooth your skin? 

Great things about this product!: 

  • It's Canadain Company
  • Cruelty-Free
  • Recognized by the National Eczema Association
  • Dermatologist recommended
  • Very thick soothes the skin on contact
  • Works great with my other eczema products that I use
  • Small enough to take it on the go!
  • Fragrance-Free 

One thing I find odd :

  • So it's a Canadian company but it's just trying to find easter eggs in our grocery stores for their products. Some stores have them some have certain one's products from their lines but haven't seen their full line in one of our Canadian stores. I know some places had their full line one month but then nothing at all that they pulled every stock they had off the shelves. They have a skin care line which I'm dying to try but we don't have it in our stores, which is a bummer so much because I love this product and I want to try everything they got.


  •  Once your hands have cream on it... it's hard to squeeze the tube because the balm is thick it's a little difficult lol 
  • Wish we had more of their products available in stores.

Derma- E ~ Very Clear cleanser


After finishing my Meyer lemon cleanser from Andalou, I wanted to try Derma-E version of their brightening cleanser but I accidentally picked up the Very Clear Cleanser from Derma-E instead.  Well, I'm glad I picked this cleaning cleanser up because lately, I've been having mini breakouts so it wasn't a huge mistake after all. This reminds me of The Body Shope's Tee tree cleanser that I use to use as a teenager with bad acne I wish I had this growing up or knew about it back then. So far it has worked wonders on my small acne showing up! With a few weeks in using this, I've noticed a difference in how my skin is especially in my T-zone normally I'm oily and dry in others for once it feels like my skin is balanced. 


Tee Tree oil smell I personally love it 
100% Vegan and Cruelty-Free 
Helps to control oil production
Gluten and Soy-free
Recyclable packaging 
unclogs your pores removes built-up
Anti-Blemish complex 
Paraben, sulfate mineral and lanolin free 
One pump does my whole face and it doesn't feel like I'm wasting any product. 
The pump is a nice pump to very sturdy not like others I've used. 


Derma-E makes great products and I've never had an issue with them.
