Review: Avène Product Range for Eczema-Prone Skin

I discovered my younger daughter eczema issue while she was only few months old. She suffers from skin rashes and itchiness when eczema affected her. When I received product sponsorship from Avène to try out their product range for Eczema-prone skin, I immediately accepted because I wanted to try it out on my girl, in the hope of solving her eczema.
Avène product range for Eczema-prone skin is suitable for all ages with Eczema skin condition, even to infants and children. I received 4 products to try on my girl, and have been using them for more than a month now.

1) Avène Cicalfate Repair Cream 40ml, RM 45 (Before GST)
Cicalfate Repair Cream is a new product from Avène, which is already available from February 2015 onwards.
Avène Cicalfate Repairing Cream can be used to heal cracked lips, dry irritation, cuts, light burns, bug bites, diaper rash, and laser treated areas and pimple scars.
I like its non-scented formula. It forms a barrier on my girl’s skin after massage it in. This way, it locks the moisture in the skin and prevents skin from dryness and itchiness.
Directions for Use:

Apply once or twice a day to previously cleaned or dried skin.

2) Avène Cold Cream Ultra Rich Soap-free Cleansing Bar 25g
Cold cream is a traditional formula in the French Pharmaceutical Codex, made from bees wax, sweet almond oil and rosewater. Also known as Galen’s cerate, it used to be prepared in the pharmacist’s dispensary as an extemporaneous preparation on doctor's prescription.

Avène Cold Cream Ultra Rich Soap-free Cleansing Bar has non-stripping formula to maintan skin’s natural pH balance. It is rich in Avène Thermal Spring Water to soothe and soften the skin. 
The texture is Creamy and moisturizing. The soap turns foamy once contact with water. Skin doesn’t feel tight after wash, moreover skin is soft, and smooth. It leaves a gentle protective film for soft skin.

Avène Cold Cream Ultra Rich Soap-free Cleansing Bar is Soap-free, lanolin-free. It can be used on face and body.

Note: Cold Cream Soap-Free Cleansing Bar needs to be placed at dry places after using it. We would recommend for you to use a soap dish to avoid the cleansing bar from melting easily as it does not consist any preservatives to hold the shape.

Cold Cream Soap-Free Cleansing Bar 100g is retail at RM 35 (Before GST)

3) Avène Thermale Spring Water 50ml RM 20.90 
(Before GST)
Do you know that Avène Thermale Spring Water was used since 1743 in the Hydrotherapy Centre to treat serious dermalogical conditions such as atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and eczema?

Its unique composition soothes and softens the skin and restores skin’s natural balance (rich in silicate and trace elements, low salt mineral content does not dry out the skin and pH7.5 – perfect balance of anions and cations).
Clinically proven by over 300 studies to calm, soothe and soften the skin. Avène Thermale Spring Water is Preservative-free. It is bottled directly from the source – bacteriologically pure. 
Avène Thermale Spring Water is Avène’s star product. I have been using it for a few years and I always have a bottle in my makeup pouch to sooth my skin while replenish moisture during the day. My girl likes this too because it has a cooling and refreshing effect. Skin feels soothed, and less itchiness after spraying this.

4) Avène Trixera+ Selectiose® emollient cream 10ml
Avène Trixera+ Selectiose® emollient cream is a daily emollient cream for moderate to intense skin dryness, atopic skin (eczema) conditions.

It Nourises, restores the skin barrier, soothes irritation and reduces skin hypersensitivity. It is also rich in Avène Thermal Spring Water to soothe and soften the skin.
Selectiose® reduces skin hypersensitivity and irritation and controls skin inflammation response.

Avène Trixera+ Selectiose® emollient cream could prevents moisture loss. It is Fragrance-free, paraben-free.
Avène Trixera+ Selectiose® emollient cream is non-scent light texture white cream. I would massage a few minutes on my girl’s skin until it is fully absorbed.

Avène Trixera+ Selectiose® emollient cream 200ml is retail at RM 89 (Before GST)

For optimum results, it is recommended using Avene Thermal Spring Water during flare-ups and irritation. From 1 – 3 days when the skin is less inflamed, Avène recommend the use of Cicalfate Repair Cream on non-oozing skin and then followed by Trixera+ Selectiose Emollient cream on day 4 onwards for maintenance therapy to keep recurring flares under control. Like I mentioned previously, these products are ideal for general application on infants too.

Avène products are available at selected Guardian Pharmacy, Watson’s Personal Care Store, Caring Pharmacy, Aeon Wellness Pharmacy, SASA Cosmetics and Independent Pharmacies.
