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.
89 per cent of users said they saw an improvement in their skin’s appearance over 28 days of use, while 88 per cent said the product relieved skin discomfort and 90 said their skin was soothed.
95 per cent also claimed skin felt softer, while 84 per cent said they saw an improvement in just seven days.
‘This dry skin cream is AMAZING,’ wrote one fan. ‘I was very sceptical about its claims but having used this I am so glad I bought this.
‘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’.
Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.
Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).
But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.
When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
