Are you struggling to find products that work on dry, allergy prone skin?

January 17, 2017

Winter can cause havoc on our skin, the cold weather, harsh wind and heated rooms can cause dryness and sensitivity. But what if your skin was like this all year round? What if you had allergy prone skin, dry skin, eczema, dermatitis and had to live with that feeling all the time?


It can be so hard for anyone with those types of skin issues to find products that work, let alone look pretty on the bathroom shelf. Purepotions is a company I have been championing for two years for many reasons. Not only are their products clinically proven to work and completely change peoples lives, but, now with some tweaking to their earlier packaging and with the addition of more “Beauty” type products, there is no reason to feel as if you are missing out from a proper skincare regime.

I am going to share with you some new launches and some exclusive products from  Purepotions that not only work, but look pretty and are a joy, rather than a chore, to use every day. There is nothing medicinal looking about these products, especially if it is something you already feel conscious about, you can have these beautiful products on display.

3 Piece Skin Salvation Discovery Collection

Purepotions 3 piece Skin Salvation Discovery Collection

Included in this collection is the all singing all dancing 50ml Intensive Moisturising Ointment, or as I like to call it my “Miracle” product. Pretty much everyone in my family from my 9 year old son to my 83 year old nan use this product on an almost daily basis. This is also the product I recommend the most to people. This earthy, mustard coloured ointment, which has a balm like texture, is deeply moisturising and hydrating. It is free from chemicals, 100% natural and full of essential fatty acids. It is perfect for use on Eczema, dry, itchy skin, Psoriasis, Dermatitis or anywhere that is feeling a little out of sorts. (Make sure you do a 24 hour patch test first.) For full details of how incredible this has been in our household, please read HERE. Also included in this discovery collection is the 100ml

Purepotions 3 piece Skin Salvation Discovery Collection

Daily Moisturising Cream. Free from parabens, petro-chemicals and perfumes this incredibly nourishing cream is suitable for all skin types and ages. Jam packed full of skin nourishing vitamins and essential fatty acids, this lightweight, silky cream is effective & moisturising and can be used on a day to day basis. Including antioxidant and anti-inflammatory Shea butter and chamomile, nettle, chickweed and calendula, this cream is gentle, soothing and hydrating on even the most dry, sore, sensitive skin. If you suffer from Dermatitis, Eczema or really dry flaky skin, this is so cooling and soothing and does not sting. Great to use anywhere over the body you need extra hydration. My 18 year old son uses this on his sensitive face after shaving as it really cools and soothes the skin in case of razor burn. Finally a new product for me is the Intensive Lip Balm. 100% natural this product is the perfect pocket sized product. Wonderful to deeply hydrate sore, chapped, cracked lips but also great to put around the nose, especially if it is sore from a cold, around the eye area if you suffer dryness there and on the tops of the ears if they get chapped from the wind. It doesn’t have any taste really and feels buttery soft on my lips. Perfect for my little boy to keep in his coat pocket at school. A must have.

Scalp Oil 100ml –

Purepotions Scalp Oil

This100% natural product literally saved me from so much pain and discomfort and is the reason I have been able to stop using prescribed steroid lotions on my scalp. As mentioned previously on many of my posts, I take medication. Unfortunately, one of the side effects of this is that it leaves my skin really dry and irritated. For over two years I had to use a steroid solution in my hair as my scalp becomes so itchy and flaky that I am literally clawing at my head making it bleed. Switching to SLS free shampoos has helped and so has using Propolis gel on my head but I still do get the itching. Now using this Scalp oil i can safely say the itching is under control without the need for steroid lotion. Containing Borage seed oil it is suitable for sore, itchy, flaky scalps. Seborrhoeic dermatitis and scalp psoriasis can also be greatly helped by using this products as it has really helped me. I use this oil at night time, when needed and rub it in around the hairline area ( as that is where i suffer the worst) I then sleep on a towel and rinse off in the morning. It washes out easily and my hair is as soft and manageable as it always is. Very easy to use as its in a pump dispenser, it does smell quite herby, but I really like the smell. I really highly recommend this product if you suffer like I have. The 100ml size is exclusive to QvcUK

Omega Rich Cleansing Oil 200ml –

Purepotions Omega Rich Cleansing Oil

If you do suffer from, not only incredibly dry sensitive skin on your face, but also Eczema and allergy prone skin, it can be hard to find a cleansing product that works at soothing and hydrating the skin, but is also a pleasure to use. Purepotions have you covered perfectly. This nourishing oil looks and feels as beautiful as other high end cleansing oils and also looks pretty in the bottle so you can leave it out in the bathroom without the need to hide it away for looking medicinal. 100% natural and blended with luxury oils it gently, yet deeply, removes dirt and make up (including eye make up) effectively and quickly and leaves you with a beautifully hydrated looking skin. Fragrance free this oil is easy to use, apply a small amount into the palm of your hand, gently massage it into your face and neck and over your eye make up if you wish, then using the included cloth dipped into warm water, wipe away. I am always so amazed at how incredibly soft, and I mean baby soft, and clean and bright my skin looks and feels after using this. This is also great if you have children with incredibly sensitive skin, that may be able to wear face paint, as you can use a little of this to gently and safetly wipe it away.

Intensive Facial Oil 30ml –

Purepotions Intensive Facial Oil

This is a wonderful product to use of an evening straight after cleansing with the above Cleansing oil. Full of soothing and brightening ingrediants such as Calendula and Rosehip, this facial oil deeply nourishes dry, parched skin. It also brightens the skin and after prolonged use can help improve pigmentation and even out the skin tone. 100% natural, the smell of the included ingrediants is pure and comforting and makes using this of an evening an absolute joy. Using the dropper I apply a small amount onto my fingers and gently pat it onto my face and neck. It sinks in quickly and doesn’t leave a horrible oily residue. Can also be used on oily skin to help balance it out. Although this is an evening product, I do sometime use it during the day if my skin is particularly dry and I am not going to be applying make up.

There is no denying I am a huge fan of this brand, purely because I have seen first hand with my son, myself and my husband, how great it is at healing and soothing the skin. Obviously these are just my findings but this award winning brand has received incredible reviews from thousands of customers. To read about how and why the brand was created  please read all about Natalie Balmond Here.

    I'm definitely going to have to investigate more PurePotions, I had one of their balms and I forgot how good it is. I've recently have a patch of topic eczema appear on my face – I've only ever had it on my hands before. I've switched too all natural cleansers and balms etc, so I'm hoping that they'll help. So annoying!
