But I digress…
Initially, I purchased XeraCalm face and frame cream, which is $34 for a 6.76-oz. tube, for Connor. Poor factor will get those raised patches of pink, itchy, flaky dry pores and skin in iciness, and this cream is the one over the counter product that soothes her discomfort and fully gets rid of the dry spots.
And it really works rapid! Whenever she will get a bout of aggravated pores and skin and we use this, she’s again to her commonplace non-itchy self in an afternoon.

But then I began the use of it on my face and neck a few month in the past, in a while after my pores and skin began peeling and turning pink from the retinol I’m the use of.
I were the use of Fresh Seaberry Oil, which I nonetheless love/like, nevertheless it simply wasn’t moisturizing sufficient for the serious redness and sensitivity brought about via the aggressively exfoliating retinol.
Two days of XeraCalm AD all over the place my face and neck, and the redness, ouchies and flakes have been long past. No breakouts both, and it even layers neatly beneath make-up.
Boom. Take that.
XeraCalm is unscented, creamy and thick, and whilst it feels really extensive on my pores and skin (it isn’t a type of “lighter than air” creams), it isn’t sticky or greasy. I will be able to put on it on my neck and now not be agitated. LOL!
The tube I’ve, which is proven right here, is the older model of Avène’s hermetic packaging, and it’s a ache to get the lotion out, however the brand new model comes with a pump that’s meant to be more straightforward to make use of.
Anyway, it’s at the pricey facet, however until you’re pouring oodles of it to your face and frame, it will have to ultimate a very long time.
