We’ve finally found a product line with moisturizers that work for us!
Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce you to… *Drum roll*
The Therplex Company
Hypoallergenic, paraben, phthalate, gluten, fragrance, and cruelty FREE!
Guys, it’s basically crap free. #thumbsup
‘Specially created for those with severely dry skin and eczema!
Fact: According to the National Eczema Organization, 30 million Americans suffer from the skin condition!
If you didn’t know already, last year we made a big change, and moved from Hawaii to North Dakota. It just happened to be our luck, but we got hit the worst winter you could ever imagine (The locals say it was the worst since 2011). The only thing you could see out of our living room window, was snow.
The wind was freezing cold and burned our skin with every gust.
My husband’s lips were so red and cracked that he was embarrassed to even leave the house!
But Mason… My poor baby Mason’s legs were covered in scabs from his constant scratching of his eczema.
We tried everything. Johnson & Johnson baby lotion and baby oil, Cetaphil (Recommended by my sister who suffers from eczema), Aveeno, Aquaphor, Eucerin (Doctor’s rec who also suffers from eczema) and more. Nothing had worked. We eventually began to change his soap and finally settled on something that had more antibacterial properties. It helped some. But at the end of the day, we still needed a moisturizer. We continued to try other products, but again. Nothing.
Winter finally came to an end in April, thank God we survived those six months…
Thankfully, Mason’s eczema slightly cleared up, as it flares up severely in dry and cold weather.
We’ve tried Theraplex on the kids for the past few weeks and it’s been amazing!
For the most part, we’ve been using it as a simple moisturizer for Mason since his skin is currently in good shape *fingers crossed*. Occasionally, he’ll have an eczema outbreak on his waistline, but Theraplex clears it right up.
As for Levi, he normally breaks out on his cheeks that turn red and bumpy, since we began using these products, his cheeks are as smooth as his butt.
I’m happy knowing that it works for us now, but ultimately winter will tell.
I’m certain that if it works on the little outbreaks now, it will be able to control the more severe cases we deal with when the weather becomes more cold and dry.
The Theraplex Company is very big on the saying “Less is more” here’s a little chart that compares the ingredients of other products to products of their own! Crazy to know we put all of these things on our skin without even reading the ingredients.
I love all of these products, but my favorite is in the pink spray bottle it’s called “ClearLotion“! The directions list to spritz it on when you’re fresh out of the shower, with your body still wet! After spraying it on, you dry off with a towel!
Here you see me holding open “Barrier Balm“. It’s infused with hydrosilicone and petrolatum which helps penetrate deeply into the skin!
Sealed with the stamp of approval from the National Eczema Association! Seriously, how cool is that?! We use the “Eczema Therapy” ‘specially for Mason’s minor flares on his waist line.
Look at that precious little face! Ah! Best of all, (Minus the dollop of products on Levi’s forehead and cheeks) look at how clear his skin is! We use their “Emollient” specially on his cheeks.
Doctor Sarah Pietrangelo a medical advisor on the Theraplex team was nice enough to send us these goodies. She lives and swears by them for her own family (Husband, toddler, and baby) and as a pediatrician, she even recommends them to her patients!
Overall, I’m relieved knowing that we are going into this upcoming winter PREPARED Theraplex by our side. Without a doubt in my mind I know it will be a trusted family product in every season for us!
Try these products out for yourself, you’ll fall in love.
Best of luck on your skin journey,
