HAND ECZEMA: Dramatic but genuinely this is the first liquid hand wash I have totally fallen in love with

Dramatic but genuinely this is the first liquid hand wash I have totally fallen in love with, my eczema is worst on my hands and this has legit been a game-changer for me & the hand cream is better than most moisturisers I’ve used !! Love that I can use this product even when my skin is flaring and it’s still as gentle & as soft as ever!

Great product but dispenser too large

I Love all pestle & mortar products and this product itself doesn’t disappoint however too much hand wash is dispensed per pump which I find wasteful. I also find the same issue with the hand cream.

Bottom line: Yes, I would recommend this product

Instant soothing relief for severe eczema

I have suffered severe eczema since birth with regular flare-ups every year and constant itching. I have been prescribed steroids by my GP and hospital dermatologists (topical and oral steroids)and antihistamines for my entire life and long-term usage of the steroids has thinned out my skin. I’ve tried practically every medicated skincare brand on the market also and I have never felt instant soothing relief until I began using the Essentials range – both hand and body. What amazed me was that even when I have an extreme flare-up with blistered seeping skin, I can still actually apply the body cream without any stinging sensation and after regular use I have seen one particular skin bump (which I had for nearly a year) disappear fully and my extra dry skin is now much softer. I do still get eczema as you can never cure it, however it is much more manageable and I have reduced my usage of steroids significantly. The hand wash and hand cream are lifesavers too as I am constantly washing or sterilising my hands and these products have managed to keep severe eczema at bay and my hands are now lovely and soft. I decant the hand cream into a smaller bottle to have in my handbag so it would be great if there were handbag sized bottles of Essentials Hand Cream too 😉 Thank you Pestle & Mortar for creating such wonder-products to help calm down my eczema!!

Great Product

My daughter has eczema. I started using this a few months ago and it has really helped with maintaining and improving the condition of her skin. Will be purchasing again. Great product.
