Dermatique Recuperating Cream*

Dermatique Recuperating Cream

A couple of weeks ago I was kindly sent a tub of Dermatique Recuperating Cream to try. I was pretty excited to give it a go as the skin on my face has been really dry and even a little flaky. Plus, I got a tattoo at the end of July that was still healing, leaving the skin extremely dry.

Dermatique specialise in skin care solutions for dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis and itchy skin. The products are paraben, mineral oil and steroid free, making them perfect for sensitive skin! The Recuperating Cream is also fragrance free, which is great for my tattoo as you shouldn't put anything fragranced on the skin while it heals.

After two weeks use, barely even a dent!

The Recuperating Cream can be used as a face and body moisturiser as well as a primer for make up, meaning that you can save some pennies instead of having to buy a separate primer. I find the texture of the cream a little hard to describe as it's quite solid in the tub, but melts into a thin, non sticky texture when applied to the skin. The nearest substance I think to compare the texture to is solid coconut oil, just creamier.

I've spent the past week in Rome, where the temperature has been in the high twenty's. Being a fair skinned redhead I find that my hair and skin tend to get dried out in hot weather. I currently have quite a few bottles of Garnier Summer Body to get through, so I've been using the Recuperating Cream on my face only. As it melts into the skin only a two pence sized amount is needed and you can almost feel it immediately sinking into, so there is no need to wait for ages before you apply your make up!

After using the Recuperating Cream for a week or two I have seen a difference in my skin. I'm lucky enough not to suffer from eczema or psoriasis, but it has still gotten rid of the flaky skin on my forehead and around my nostrils. I noticed the biggest difference on my tattoo. It was pretty much healed, with a few flakes in the middle, but overall dryness on the area. After a day or two the skin was much softer and the flakes had gone away! Now the tattoo is healed, with no dryness like I has expected for a while.

Dermatique Recuperating Cream is £29 for a 400ml tub, or £4.99 for 15ml. I would say it's on their pricier range of skincare, but as my current primer is £30 and I've recently splashed out on Estee Lauder Night Repair to find no difference, so I can happily say it's worth the money!
