My skin is dry to such an extent that sometimes it makes me uncomfortable. Especially at the height of the heating season, when the skin on the legs is so dry that it begins to itch.
A similar problem periodically arises in the daughter, especially in the cold season, when the skin is constantly in contact with tights. At one time, she even had scabs on her legs, so dry was her skin.
However, the reason may be the lack of a sufficient amount of vitamins in the consumed food (E, group B, etc.), and the dryness of the air in the room. We have practically no such factors, so I tried dozens of creams until I found the one that suited me in all respects. It turned out to be Topicrem.
The manufacturer of the tool is the French company Nijy Laboratories. In addition to the means for the body, there is also a cream for the face, hands and feet. Cosmetics of this company are sold in pharmacies, but can be ordered via the Internet directly from the official site (there is a Russian version). If the order is over 60 Euros, delivery is free.
The capacity of the bottle is 500ml, it is used quite sparingly (we have two months with our daughter for two months). Recently, the label and dispenser have slightly changed, alas, not for the better – as you can see, the hole for the cream is at the top, which means that with a sharp press the tool splashes up or to the side quite strongly (unlike the usual pouring down to the palm) .
The cost of the bottle is about 1000 rubles (230 UAH), which does not give it accessibility. However, the effectiveness of the agent is 3-4 times higher than that of competing agents, and the amount of the agent required is smaller than that of similar lotions.
In addition to glycerol (9.5%), urea (2%) is also present. This component is difficult to find in inexpensive lotions, it is due to it, effective moisturizing and skin recovery is achieved. By the way, the means with its higher content are designed to restore the skin with burns, bedsores, etc.
The manufacturer claims that Topicrem emulsion provides skin hydration and protection for 24 hours, eliminating signs of dry skin. Also, the tool restores the lipid mantle of the skin, removes feelings of tightness and discomfort. What bribed me at the very beginning is that the emulsion is suitable even for newborns, that is, it is hypoallergenic.
The consistency of the product is very pleasant – not very liquid, but also not thick (as is often the case with body lotions – Nivea, Pantenol, etc.). The label states that the cream is absorbed within 2-4 hours, but this is not quite so – it is absorbed in a few minutes, almost immediately you can dress without fear of getting your clothes dirty.
The smell of all Topicrem products is the same – a delicate and fresh scent of a clean body, with a slight tinge of the smell of something baby, or powder, or pure diapers (in the good sense of the word;)
Topicrem moisturizing emulsion for the body has been successfully living in my bathroom for 4 years, which I have never regretted. She perfectly copes with very dry skin, turning it into a smooth, silky and perfectly moisturized.
The only negative, which does not affect the properties and effect of the cream, is not a very convenient dispenser. However, this is a matter of habit, especially since the dispensing mechanism can be changed if desired.
So, if you are the owner of dry skin, I recommend that you try Topicrem, I’m sure you will not regret it.
