Neutrogena Soap (emollients) for Dry Skin: "Beware of Neutrogena French milled soap in hotels. This is not hypoallergenic! Massive skin rash requiring Benadryl and topical steroids for 2 days. Cannot find out what is in this but I’ve never had it happen with anything else."

A-Mantle (emollients) for Dry Skin: "Have used it for 35 years for various skin issues. First time was when husband burned hands and it helped immensely with the healing process and scar reduction. We find it to be a good all round skin balancer. Recently, it was used to help heal red burning skin created by microderm abrasion on the face. It used to be used as a base of compounding topical prescription medicine."

EpiCeram (emollients) for Dry Skin: "I have been stripping my skin w high end acids/RetinA/over-exfoliant for years. I was extremely dry and flaky. My skin started to react to any extreme temperature or touch. I stripped the barrier of my skin and it was always angry. My Derm gave me this for Dermatitis. It took a few weeks but all my issues have disappeared. I am afraid to use anything else. It isn’t greasy and at times I feel like I need more moisture. However, I resist adding anything more than this cream. I can’t find the reason why this is by Rx only though?!?!"

Promiseb (emollients) for : "I have had seborrheic dermatitis for years! Nothing helped. This product is incredible, I need nothing else to keep that ugly red scaling on my face at bay. My skin looks better than it did when I was 20! I love Promiseb !! It worked immediately!!"

Blistex Lip Balm (emollients) for Dry Skin: "Had chapped lips the other night and couldn't find my EOS (what I usually use for lip balm) so I used the berry smoothie blistex. The next day my lips were still chapped so I found my eos and used that. Last night I used blistex and woke up with my lips extremely swollen, tingly, dry and red and they haven't gone down and it's been hours."

EpiCeram (emollients) for Dry Skin: "I have had outbreaks on the palms and between fingers over the past five years. It was painful and my skin would get quite raw at times. I tried over the counter creams and a cortisone cream prescribed by a dermatologist but nothing seemed to help. I started using the Epiceram cream prescribed by the same dermatologist and it took several days before I began to see results, but I can say that my hands are in better shape than they have been in years now. I am still cautious, using gloves when cleaning or washing dishes but I think that, although it has been a very slow, gradual process, there has been a significant improvement."

Blistex Lip Balm (emollients) for Dry Skin: "I bought this same lip balm Blistex Orange Mango Blast and my lips swelled up and now they are bumpy, scaly and burning!!! I have been putting plain vaseline on my lips because they are so dry and chapped, I believe it was this lip balm because I have had no other problems before using this product!!!"

CeraVe Facial Moisturizing (emollients) for Dry Skin: "My daughter tried this per her dermatologist. First 2 times it didn’t bother her except she thought another product for blackheads might be causing some stinging. Third time she used it (it was the only thing put on her face after showering with products she has used for years) went to class, and by 4-5 hours later she had horrible awful redness especially around and under her eyes, and it feels like a sunburn. Washed face, has splashed it several times, & waiting to see if an ER visit will be necessary. Wish I could post a pic of what this stuff caused- it is very scary & she is away at college. Thank God there is a roommate there who could help in an emergency. Internet research reveals quite a few irritation reactions and a number affecting eyes."

EpiCeram (emollients) for Dry Skin: "I have SEVERE contact dermatitis (CD) on my hands, and they had been dry - so dry that making a fist caused my fingers to split and bleed. CeraVe was suggested at first, but then I was prescribed Epiceram. The lotion worked well on the less severe areas, and I have had some healing after four weeks of use. However, my finger tips and two entire fingers have not improved at all. I believe this is because my condition is too severe for the lotion to do its job. For mild eczema or CD, I'm sure this will work - it does provide some relief. For me, however, it has not worked 100% - so it's getting a "middle of the road" rating."

Biafine (emollients) for Dry Skin: "I was dismissed after 35 radiation treatments on my left lower leg with a huge gaping wound. ( Severe radiation burn. About nine inches long, four inches wide and probably a half inch deep on top of left lower leg) The radiation doctor told me to put Aquaphor on the enormous wound. What a joke. Aquaphor did absolutely nothing to help the wound. (My leg had been treated after surgery to remove a sarcoma) Went straight home to my computer and looked up “heal radiation burns” on Amazon. Found Biafine immediately. It completely healed that big wound in one week. AMAZING."

Blistex Lip Balm (emollients) for Dry Skin: "Two days ago I purchased a Blistex tube called orange mango blast. It smells great however has caused my lips to swell and burn. Normally I use the mint Blistex and never experience anything like this. Medicinal ingredients are different. Is that the cause of the swelling?"

EpiCeram (emollients) for Dry Skin: "I have been suffering pain/irritation/distraction where my eyeglasses touch my face for over a decade. Since I also have very severe dry eye syndrome, so my treatments have always focused on my eyes, out of desperation, I tried to treat my skin conditions instead since last year and tried different skin creams, including those with steroids, then came to Epiceram in May 2017. I have been using Epiceram since May, and my conditions have been improving every day, even though very slowly, understandably considering how bad and long my conditions are. I test my improvements by put my eyeglasses on and feel the level of pain and irritation under the nosepads, and Finally, yesterday, I began to wear glasses again...Amazing stuff"

EpiCeram (emollients) for Dry Skin: "I have suffered from eczema - especially on and around my eyelids, and rosacea all over my face for about 5 years now. (Started when I was about 35). If I sit next to a fire, my face gets hot and breaks out, if I am out in the cold, my face breaks out. My skin was dry and flaky, and felt like my face was chapped all the time. I was having to apply moisturizer 5-6 times a day. It was awful! I've been using Epiceram for 2 weeks, and my skin has been completely transformed! My skin is super smooth and hydrated, my eczema is totally gone. My face is not breaking out from heat/cold! My pore size looks smaller. This stuff is amazing! I wish I could take a bath in it!"

Eletone (emollients) for Dry Skin: "My four year old daughter has eczema. And we used it while her skin was for the most part clear and her face broke out with a rash, which she rarely gets a patch on her face but this was full blown all over her face. She looked like she was sun burned. And her eczema broke out all over her skin as usual but either the medicine did not work or it aggravated it more because this was her worst breakout ever. Redness everywhere in larger patches than usual and redder than usual. I had to go back to the steroid créeme to clear it off. How disappointing. I just tried it again last night and her face has broken out and gotten red over night."

Carmex (emollients) for Dry Skin: "I've used Carmex for years. I've also used off-brand Carmex for years. I've used it for burns, (mild only), to keep the skin intact if it were to blister. I've used it on chapped lips, which is the indicated purpose of the medicated lip balm. I've not used it on dry skin, however I do use it on abrasions, cuts, scrapes, and even damage done in the hospital due to repeated needle sticks. It helps to heal the skin and keep scarring to a minimum. Mint is a natural anticeptic, meaning that, if the area is clean prior to application, you are basically set as far as preventing infection. I also use this on my daughter, and a few others. Carmex has kept me from some very uncomfortable situations with scrapes and scars."

Jergens (emollients) for Dry Skin: "I bought the new Jerens Natural glow wetskin. Immediately the day after I broke out in hives, and rashes all over my body. I'm currently treating it and hopefully it goes away. This is day two and it still hasn't gone away. I read the ingredients on the back and it has a lot of toxic metals. Not good at all."

DermaFix (emollients) for Dry Skin: "This is a scam! I was sent a trial and now they(?) send me $200.00 per month two one oz. bottles. There is a charge on my credit card at $200.00 per month! There is no return address! There is no invoice. When I first ordered there was no statement saying I was thereafter obligated to continue shipments of this product! Help, how do I return unopened product and get my money back? How do I get them to stop?"

EpiCeram (emollients) for Dry Skin: "I think some folks may be confused about what this is supposed to do and the days it takes to do it. It restores your skin's own barrier to help heal and prevent a "break" = eczema and atopic dermatitis. You put it on first, then your prescription a few minutes later, if you need one. You use it for at least 2-4 weeks to strengthen your own skin from the damaged outer layer so it stops and prevents an active break(out). Almost nothing worked on me, including "shielding lotions." From their instructions: Should EpiCeram® be prescribed along with corticosteroids or a topical immunomodulator, it is recommended to apply EpiCeram® just a few minutes before applying steroids or topical immunomodulator to allow proper penetration."
