Exederm Skincare {Review}

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

When my son was a baby, he had pretty bad eczema. We bathed him every day as part of his bedtime routine, but the water and bath soap were drying out his skin. We didn’t want to change up his routine for fear of throwing him off, so we bought lots of eczema creams and ointments to try and help his skin. They worked okay, but I sure wish we’d known about Exederm back then!


Exederm is a skin care line made especially for people with sensitive skin, whether it be eczema, dermatitis, or just dry, sensitive skin. They avoid irritants and use the mildest ingredients possible to ensure that sensitive skin is kept healthy and happy. Their baby line includes a baby shampoo, baby oil, baby lotion, baby moisturizer and baby bath, and each has received a ‘Seal of Acceptance’ award from the National Eczema Association.


Along with their baby line, Exederm has a full line for adults. The adult line is similar to the children’s line in that it has been designed to avoid fragrance, color or dyes, parabens, lanolin, formaldehyde and other known skin irritants. The adult products have also received the highest marks from the National Eczema Association. Along with a shampoo, body wash, body lotion, body oil and intensive moisture cream the adult line also includes a conditioner and a flare control cream.


I was sent the flare control cream and the baby intensive moisturizer to review. I have a few dry, scaly patches on my legs so I have been using the cream for about two weeks now on those patches, and it works! They are not completely gone yet, but I can definitely tell a difference. I have only been using the cream once a day, and the instructions recommend three to four times a day, but even that once a day application has reduced the size of the patches and smoothed them out considerably. In fact, now it’s to the point that I’m having a hard time finding the patches to apply the cream because they’re so much softer and less noticeable! They never itched, but if they had the cream would have helped with that, too. The cream is thick, but not ridiculously so, goes on smooth and rubs out quickly. There are no weird smells or strange after-effects, other than healing my skin!

I gave my friend the baby moisturizer to use on her 5-month old baby. She said, “It’s perfect for sensitive cracked eczema skin. It’s perfect that it’s not scented as that causes tears. The feel of it is great. Not too thin and not too thick.”


Exederm products can be purchased through their website with an amazing 20% off on orders of 3 items or more, plus free shipping for orders more than $50. They also offer a money back guarantee if you’re not completely satisfied with your purchase. Exederm can also be found at Amazon.com, Target, Drugstore.com, Buy Buy Baby and select drugstores nationwide.

When I was pregnant with my first son, my mom wanted to throw a baby shower for me from our extended family.  By that point, we really had everything that we needed as far as clothes and gear was concerned, so I asked if she would throw us a “Johnson and Johnson” baby shower.  (Get it?  Johnson and Johnson, because that’s our last name??)  My extended family gave products that would be used for bathtime and bedtime, and I kid you not when I say that we had shampoo, lotion, body wash, baby powder, etc. stocked for the next two years.  It was amazing!  just-hatched-logo

  I was introduced to Just Hatched 4 Babies products when I was reading through Parents magazine a couple of months ago, and more than anything, I loved the packaging.  The simplicity of the lines and colors caught my eye, and all of the pieces together creates an amazing look with different colors, sizes, and shapes while also blending together in one piece.


“Being moms ourselves here at Just Hatched, we know how important products of integrity are – especially when babies are involved. Every parent simply wants the best for their kids – and at an affordable price! All of our products are hypoallergenic and clinically tested. Just Hatched products are also Gluten-free and Sulfate/Paraben/Phthalate Free – which means, “No Yucky Stuff Inside!”


I was sent the entire line of these Just Hatched 4 Babies products, and I love all of them!  The scent is light, and I especially love the pump on the shampoo, lotion, and body wash which makes it easy to use with one hand while you’re doing something with another.


I also love the trial/travel packets that were so easy to take with us on the plane last month for our vacation, and I can see lots of use for them as we try to clean up from playing at the beach and the pool this summer.


The cost of these products is incredibly reasonable, with no price higher than $3.99 — along with the coupon code, there’s no reason to not try out the Just Hatched 4 Babies products!  🙂

Simone France Skincare {Giveaway} – CLOSED

I received a set of Mary Kay’s Satin Hands when I graduated from high school, but I didn’t really get the hype about it at the time.  I asked a friend if she wanted the set, and she was overjoyed and snatched it up.  Strike one.  I then received another set of Mary Kay’s Satin Hands for my bridal shower, and again, didn’t even try the set before I passed it along to another friend, who, amazingly enough, was also overjoyed and snatched it right up.  Strike two.  When I received yet one more set of Mary Kay’s Satin Hands for a baby shower, I figured that I should at least try it out and see what my friends from years past had been so excited about.

Oh.  My.  Glory.  Goodness.

I absolutely loved the set, and I used it throughout the rest of my pregnancy and through part of the dry winter before it ran out and I got more for my birthday.  And kept it that time, too.  🙂

The only downfall to the Satin Hands set is that it can really only be used on your hands.  I tried once using it on my body, but it didn’t turn out as well as I had envisioned.  I’ve been looking for something since then that would work for my legs and arms, and then I came across Simone France Skincare.


Simone France Skincare offers a unique cleansing method that uses classic French skincare products, but the service that stood out to me was the individual, one-on-one skincare consultation that anyone can use, even if you choose not to purchase from Simone France.   After receiving a skin care diagnosis from Simone France which explains the reasons for your skin problems and outlines at-home steps you can take, Simone France also provides a suggestion of products to use.  In addition, you can search by Skin Concerns  or by Your Skin Type to find the specific products that apply to your skin issues.

Body Duo

Simone France Skincare sent me the Body Duo shown above that comes with an 8 oz. jar of Body Buff and an 8 oz. bottle of Body Glow to review, and I LOVE it just as much (if not more!) than the Satin Hands set.  Both items for exfoliation and then for moisturizing and protection have the perfect texture without feeling to harsh, and the scent isn’t overpowering. This set can be used everyday, and the Body Buff currently resides next to my bathtub.  🙂


Simone France Skincare also makes a set called the Handwich that includes soap, Refining Scrub, and Soft Hands RX specifically for exfoliating, moisturizing, and protecting your hands.


My eye also caught the Deep Moisture Mask that works well for moisturizing skin that has been affected by dry weather over this past (very long…) winter.

daily facial

 Simone France, though, is best known for the Sandwich Daily Facial Package that offers deep pore cleansing, mild exfoliation and ideal moisturizing in just 2 minutes a day.

With the weather changing from the harsh, cold, dry winter to gorgeous spring days, take a look at Simone French Skincare to help make the transition easier or to add that extra boost to glowing skin.

Enter below to win the Simone French Skincare Body Duo that I received and love so much!
