A New Skincare Addition | Epaderm

£12.20 (500g)

Last week I received a sample from Epaderm of their 2 in 1 emollient and skin cleanser cream. After a week of trial, I have come to a judgement of the product and I can honestly say that this product is amazing, it does exactly what is says on the bottle and more. 

I have severe eczema on the back and inside of my arms and legs; I have tried EVERY product recommended by the Doctor but none of them seem to work besides E45 which I use on a daily basis anyway. I was looking for something that would hydrate the areas where I have eczema rather than just form a thick layer of grease on top of my skin. 

The cream is SLS-free, contains no colourings or fragrances, and is also suitable for sensitive skin. The smell is not too great which is expected for a eczema cream, I am yet to find one that does smell good. 

The texture is nice and thick without being too sticky, making it easier to apply. There was no oily residue left on my hands after application, I felt that the cream was absorbed into my skin leaving it feeling soothed and moisturised.

Overall, the cream was 10/10 and I loved how moisturising it was to my skin. I will hundred percent be repurchasing this product and adding it to my everyday skincare regime. If you suffer from eczema, psoriasis or any other dry skin conditions, then I recommend popping into your local Boots, Sainsburys, Lloyds Pharmacy or Superdrug and picking up some Epaderm!

Have you tried this product? I would love to hear what you thought of it.

Good evening everyone, summer is almost over and autumn is fast approaching!

My Last Two Weeks: For the past two weeks I have been posting a lot on my Instagram, from pictures of food to sunsets, I am really getting into photography at the moment, so be sure to follow me to see more, @franrockey

I started at my new job last Tuesday (4th), I am now a shop assistant at the Olde Sweet Shoppe in Hitchin, being surrounded by sweets for eight hours and a half a day is torture when you are trying to be healthy but nevertheless I have been able to resist temptation, for now.

This Tuesday (11th) my colleagues and I headed down to The Angel’s in Hitchin for a lovely after work treat, the food was amazing and the service was impeccable, shout out to our waitress Georgia. If you have an Angel's restaurant near where you live, I recommend going in and trying their American style cuisine, you will not be left disappointed!

Hope you’ve all had a great week! And let’s hope the last few weeks of summer brighten up!

Quick Update

I cannot believe that we are now almost half way through the summer, honestly where has the time gone? I have two bits of exciting news to share. Last week I got a job at the Old Sweet Shoppe in Hitchin, if any of you are from the Bedfordshire or Hertfordshire area, be sure to pop in and say hello, I promise... I don't bite! 

The second bit of exciting news is that I will be featuring in Issue 2 of Love Mag. I contacted the creator of Love Mag, Florence, as she was looking for a columnist and I thought it would be a great opportunity to get my writing out. My column will be discussing current political and worldwide topics. I am currently unaware of the date that the Issue will be out but I will be sure to announce it on Twitter, @franciscarockey, when I know. 

If you would like to read my article, about Police Brutality, then you can order at Issue online from - The magazine is currently only available to order online, hopefully future issues will be available in stores. 

Hope you are all having a lovely summer!
