Honest Mum and familyI’ve suffered with eczema since I was young, as has my eldest son, Oliver, and not only are the symptoms frustrating, and sometimes sore and painful, but they can be rather alarming, particularly when it comes to children. Discovering two new Diprobase products, Itch Relief Cream and Daily Moisturising Cream, has honestly been a game changer for us both.

These two products work by helping to restore and strengthen the skin’s barrier, locking moisture in and keeping irritants out. Oliver, 9, and I, have been trialling the new Itch Relief Cream and Daily Moisturising Cream products for the past 4 weeks.

We’ve sampled many skincare products over the years to help with our skin but have been stunned by how well these Diprobase products have worked for us both. They’ve helped relieve our symptoms and have offered us both piece of mind, so itchy, dry skin hasn’t been controlling our lives or stopping us from playing together as a family.

So, who are Diprobase?

The brand has been caring for and protecting irritated skin for over 30 years and in just one month of using it, I’ve personally noticed a reduction in dry skin-flare ups. I’ve been using both the Itch Relief Cream, which offers relief from itching and redness caused by eczema and dry skin, and works within 30 minutes to aid itch relief, and the Daily Moisturising Cream for dry, sensitive skin (which can help reduce very dry skin flare-ups for up to 3 months*).

Honest Mum and son

Oliver has been using the Diprobase Itch Relief Cream on his sensitive skin too, which has reduced that irritating itchy sensation he sometimes suffers with. Thankfully, it’s a steroid-free formula which has been clinically tested and is even suitable for babies (Diprobase® Itch relief cream is suitable for babies, however for long-term use or use on large areas of skin, it is recommended to seek medical advice).

How do you use the Itch Relief Cream?

You simply apply the cream to affected skin, as needed. The white, scent-free formula combines a soothing action that helps to relieve itching while aiding the skin barrier’s regeneration. It helps the skin’s natural healing process to boot! It offers symptomatic relief from atopic dermatitis, eczema and allergic reactions but is not suitable for use on wounded skin.

How do you use the Daily Moisturising Cream?

I’ve been using the Diprobase Daily Moisturising Cream for dry, sensitive skin daily, for the last month and have found this fragrance-free cream, protective and nourishing. It’s absorbed quickly into the skin, without residue, and offers 24 hour long-lasting moisturisation which also restores and helps strengthen the skin barrier.

The cream is enriched with prebiotics which are known to stimulate the microflora in the skin (which strengthens the barrier function). It’s clinically tested and hypoallergenic too and again, is suitable for babies. *96% of babies completing the clinical study did not develop new flare-ups of extreme skin dryness over three months.

I’ve not yet used this cream on Oliver as his dry, sensitive skin is erratic, whereas my outbreaks are often daily. I’m going to start using this every day as it’s a rich moisturiser that will assist in preventing outbreaks. Diprobase is suitable for everyday use in adults and children and can be used by those suffering with dry skin and eczema-prone skin all over the body including the face (but do avoid getting it in your eyes).

skincare products

The small handy sizes of Diprobase are ideal for use when you’re out and about and the larger, at home. When we went away at the weekend, we took the smaller size with us.

    Hi Vicky,

    I’ve tried the Diprobase cream on my daughter who has eczema. We found it really good – I think it was actually an ointment we had as just a little went a long way. The tubes are a great size for your bag – even handy for a school bag.

    This cream sounds fab – A sometimes gets very dry skin and she itches and itches till it’s sore. So this sounds like just what I need to get her. Will be checking it out. x

    I’m going to be checking this product out Vicki as I get occasional breakouts and struggle to find a cream that doesn’t either make the situation worse by bringing me up in a rash or just not fix the itch-scratch cycle. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Juliet McGrattan

    I really like Diprobase products. As a generally itchy family, especially in the hayfever season and in the winter with central heating, we need something really mild and soothing that we can use daily. These do the trick and I like that I can use them on the kids with confidence too.

  6. Niki Wibrow

    We should try this on John’s skin. His eczema gets worse in the summer and he has been really scratching and itching lately. I like the sound of scent free too!
