Review Of Hope’s Relief & Giveaway – My Family Ties

When your child suffers from eczema, psoriasis or dermatitis it is very difficult to find the right products to soothe their itchy sore skin. Most of the available products suitable are packed full of ‘nasties’ with synthetic ingredients that can aggravate the skin. 

Luckily I haven’t experienced this with my children, but my oldest daughter suffers terribly from an itchy scalp which tends to be quite flaky and sore, and my youngest daughter suffers intermittently from dermatitis.   

I have been fortunate enough to have found a wonderful solution to both problems (itchy skin on the body and scalp) with the products from Hope’s Relief and have been testing them out all week. 

You can win one tube of the Hope’s Relief Intensive Rescue Cream and one tube of Hope’s Relief Moisturising Lotion by entering at the end of this post on the Gleam app.

Hope’s Relief Story

Developed by an Australian Naturopath to help her daughter who suffered from eczema, she wanted a cream to address the itchy sore skin her daughter suffered from with no nasty ingredients, only natural solutions, and so Hope’s Relief was born.  Now with seven products in the Hope’s Relief range and available in the UK, the range is becoming as popular in the UK as it is in Australia. 

Hope’s Relief – Intensive Dry Skin Rescue

Formulated for dry itchy skin and suitable for skin with eczema and psoriasis this therapeutic cream will soothe and soften the skin to moisturise and support the skin. The itch is soothed by the cream, the skin is moisturised deeply and also the cream in turn helps with the regeneration of new skin, leaving the skin soft and supple.

As it doesn’t wash off in water or soak into clothes after applying, the intensive cream doesn’t loose it’s effectiveness. It is highly concentrated with all natural ingredients (see picture below for list) and a little goes a long way. I suffer from contact dermatitis and I have used the cream to help ease the itchiness, and I can say that this is the first product I have used for my condition that has taken away the aggravating itch straight away, giving the skin time that essential time it needs to heal.  Also I found as it sinks in really quickly it is ideal for re-applying, it leaves no sticky feeling on the skin as well as soothing the itch, and gives the skin very smooth and moisturised. 

On my youngest daughter’s skin this cream is wonderful, the quickly absorbing cream works wonders to soothe and moisturise and as it is so fast to sink into the skin, there is no waiting around for it to sink in. This is such a great benefit as no child (or adult!) likes or wants to wait around for creams or lotions to sink in, no matter how beneficial they may be to the condition. 

As there are no artificial colours the cream is a natural colour, so the brown colour is a direct result of the cream having both Manuka honey and Liquorice root in it. But it blends in quickly and does not discolour the skin at all. The scent of the cream is subtle and is predominantly a light honey scent, not overpowering.

Hope's Relief Dry Skin Rescue Cream Benefits

Hope’s Relief – Moisturising Lotion 

For using all over the body Hope’s Relief formulated this softening moisturising lotion to intensely rehydrate dry, itchy, flaky skin commonly found on skin with eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. 

This moisturising lotion was made to be used daily to combat dry itchy skin, like the intensive cream it sinks in very quickly into the skin and has a light natural fragrance (the scent is delicate honey) and even on dry cracked skin gives a feeling of rich rehydration. 

Hope’s Relief Moisturising Lotion contains eight proven natural moisturisers to lock in the moisture and keep the skin soft and supple.

This daily moisturiser is ideal to use in conjunction with the Intensive Dry Skin Rescue and can be used on face and body to help soothe and hydrate dry itchy skin which is prone to eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. 

It is a light lotion and you can keep re-applying throughout the day to keep the skin smooth and supple. Used with the Intensive Dry Skin Rescue you can combat dry itchy skin that you can get from having eczema, psoriasis or dermatitis on your skin.

    try to shower with just warm water

  4. March 22, 2015 / 7:55 pm

    As I have psoriasis, I use prescribed moisturiser i.e. Cetraben. Although as I have increased my water intake the flaking has decreased.

  5. March 22, 2015 / 8:00 pm

    I don't suffer myself so have no tips but my Granddaughter suffers badly from Eczema which is why I am hoping to win this as the products which are being used at the moment don't seem to help much.

    Moisturise frequently, currently trying out a number of different moisturisers 🙂

  10. March 22, 2015 / 11:20 pm

    Drink lots of water, eat a healthy diet, get more fresh air, give your face a make-up-free day every now and then and be religious about applying day and night-time moisturisers – a face pack may also help skin to recover. Fingers crossed as the older I get, the more my skin requires a bit more time and effort to stay looking ok!

  11. March 22, 2015 / 11:28 pm

    I drink loads of water throughout the day and I always drink water when I wake at night too.

  12. March 23, 2015 / 6:36 am

    I have to agree with the others, increase water consumption to decrease dryness.

  13. March 23, 2015 / 9:35 am

    Have been using E45 but would love an alternative x

    Eumocream works for me. Anything based on White Soft Paraffin (e.g. E45) sends me loopy

  21. March 23, 2015 / 1:16 pm

    I found being pregnant is the best thing for Excema! Mine always disappears then!

  22. March 23, 2015 / 1:31 pm

    I usually use anything I can get my hands on.. though sometimes some makes it worse. I use sudocreme the most as it helps relieve soreness.

  23. March 23, 2015 / 2:57 pm

    I unfortunately suffer from psoriasis and it is everywhere and I do mean everywhere! I use Aveeno moisturiser at the moment and that is helping but I find the effects wear off with constant use so switch about a bit. I have never heard of this product and would love to try it 🙂 x

  24. March 23, 2015 / 3:31 pm

    Really just using e45 cream but always on the look out for something different x

  25. March 23, 2015 / 8:47 pm

    I wish I had a tip. Dry skin has plagued me all my life. I drink loads of water, I've tried all the moisturisers. Now my little one is suffering from the same problems, i'd love to find something that works

  33. March 24, 2015 / 6:41 am

    I use night cream and the richness really helps dry skin

  34. March 24, 2015 / 7:27 am

    I don't think you can go wrong with E45 cream

  35. March 24, 2015 / 9:07 am

  39. March 24, 2015 / 2:14 pm

    I was born with eczema and still have to this day at 47. I tend to use E45 quite a lot and also find that Dove doesn't irritate either.

  40. March 24, 2015 / 3:54 pm

    My favourite moisturiser is Nivea and I try to drink as much water everyday as possible.

  42. March 24, 2015 / 4:13 pm

    Drink plenty, wear natural fabrics like cotton and silk and use a moisturiser that isn't perfumed, to sooth whilst you cure.

  43. March 24, 2015 / 4:21 pm

    Drink lots of water and moisturise thoroughly

  44. March 24, 2015 / 5:01 pm

    Drinking more water

  45. March 24, 2015 / 6:35 pm

    apply baby oil to wet skin then towel dry

  46. March 24, 2015 / 6:36 pm

    Go easy on the water. If you can bear it, cut down showers to once every other day and never have the water too hot.

  47. March 24, 2015 / 9:20 pm

    Just drinking lots of water and find a good moisturiser!!

  48. March 25, 2015 / 2:52 pm

    My skin gets horribly dry, I haven't found anything yet that moisturises yet inst greasy

  49. March 25, 2015 / 5:40 pm

    I love Bio oil, I have very sensitive skin and this is ideal.

  50. March 25, 2015 / 9:51 pm

    Bare minerals face cream perfect for cold weather and very dry skin is like a miracle love it

  51. March 26, 2015 / 11:58 am

    My favorite moisturizer is coconut oil.

  52. March 26, 2015 / 4:30 pm

    Cetaphil calms things down quite quickly

  53. March 27, 2015 / 11:02 am

    i use e45 too, would be nice to try something new.

  54. March 28, 2015 / 8:34 am

    I try to use SIMPLE products as they're kind to skin and hypoallergenic xx

  55. March 28, 2015 / 9:03 am

    I use coconut oil and hemp hand cream

  56. March 28, 2015 / 9:49 pm

    drink lots of water and use baby oil after a shower

  57. March 29, 2015 / 9:25 am

    I don't. I have psoriasis and have tried lots of different things. I would love to try this, as I'm struggling at the moment. The cold weather makes my skin worse.

  58. March 29, 2015 / 6:09 pm

    Don't over shower. When my skin is bad I shower the night before and cake myself in moisturiser.

  59. March 30, 2015 / 7:20 pm

    Moisturise a lot particularly at night

  60. March 31, 2015 / 9:54 pm

    My tip is find a moisturizer that works for you and stick with it. I have psoriasis and losing the battle at the minute so am on cream from the doctors which is not working at the minute it was but there you go. Another would be try not to stress about it. Bad skin can be linked to stress so stressing could make it worse

  61. April 1, 2015 / 9:40 pm

    Drinking lots of water and keeping hydrated is important, but baby oil after a bath can really help with dry skin too

  62. April 2, 2015 / 6:19 am

    My son has it bad especially on his face. I have him wash daily with aqueous cream & moisturise with Aveeno. This works well except when he has a really bad outbreak we need to use steroids 🙁 I don't like to have to use them to often but sometimes it's necessary. xx

  63. April 2, 2015 / 8:28 pm

    when you run a bath, fill the foot of some clean tights with porridge oats and put it over the taps and let the water flow through. works great for my psoriasis

  66. April 4, 2015 / 12:49 pm

    Porridge oats in an old leg of tights and put into running bath water – cream bath – good for eczema

  67. April 5, 2015 / 9:29 am

    Overall, probably most use Epaderm. Can even use it on my dry eyelids. Helps my eczema no end, but isn't always enough to remove the burning or itching of course.

  72. April 10, 2015 / 11:31 pm

    I use oilatum at the moment for my hands

  73. April 12, 2015 / 12:20 pm

    I suffer with psoriasis and I recommend washing regularly to get rid of flaky bits and stop you itching then cream the skin

  108. April 29, 2015 / 3:57 pm

    Stay hydrated, and I find home-made olive oil moisturising baths (mix olive oil with a few drops of lavender essential oil) is a brilliant way to moisturise dry skin! (If you don't have olive oil in, you can use milk instead, just like the Egyptians, Romans, and Greeks did!)

    I have found that the BodyShop hemp cream is good for keeping your hands very well moiusturised, but the smell takes some getting used to!

    dove body butter is very absorbent or gel oil after a shower when my skin is damp is also very moisturising

    Rubbing Johnson's Baby Oil into wet skin is great for keeping it moisturised especially on psoriasis, which can get very itchy when dry.

    Use Cetaphil Restoraderm Skin Restoring Moisturiser Body Lotion when I get itchy dry skin – these products look really interesting
