'Works like magic' Miracle cream claims to cure dry winter skin in just seven days – and it’s less than £6

Every year when winter comes around dry skin inevitably kicks in - but there's a £6 cream that could finally solve that.

And year on year most of us try out anything we can find to try and quench our poor dried out skin and give it back the moisture that it always loses with the cold bitter winter conditions.

Well, now customers are raving about a ‘magic’ cream that claims to transform dry, cracked and flaky skin in just seven days.

The Cuticura Mildly Medicated Dry Skin Cream uses three powerhouse ingredients to restore the skin’s balance and moisture and nix dryness and discomfort.

Firstly the antibacterial zinc oxide helps to soothe and calm discomfort as well as prevent very dry skin, while natural emollient Shea Butter softens and smoothes rough skin.

The product’s advanced 24-hour moisturising complex Hydroviton® 24 uses a blend of naturally occurring ingredients to relieve dryness and cracking and re-hydrate the skin.

And customers have been loving it.

It gives you the moisture of a serum but is light and easily absorbed like a light cream. It does not leave a residue or heaviness on the skin, and above all my dry skin patches have gone after just 3 days use (and no skin break out). I will 100% continue to use this as it’s cheaper than my normal moisturiser and has done wonders for my skin.’

‘Miracle for me,’ raved another. ‘I have been using this cream for few weeks now.

‘This dry skin cream works like magic. I can already see how much difference it has made to my leg.’

‘Highly recommend if you have eczema,’ added another fan.

‘Really good cream, I’ve used the most expensive to the cheapest ones and now I come across this and it actually really works which I am surprised at, due to the fact I’ve been let down with creams so often before.

‘Would highly recommend this one to anyone who has eczema, noticed a difference after the security day, when it wasn’t as itchy or sore feeling’.
