Grandma Vine skin products
Having suffered from mild psoriasis for many years and also having dry skin, particularly on my arms and legs, I was keen to try out Grandma Vine's natural skin products for dry, sensitive skin conditions, including eczema and psoriasis.
It was also reassuring to know that these products all contain natural oils and ingredients and are free from parabens and steroids.
Heavenly Feast Body Cream
I have been using this on my arms, legs and upper body for about three to four weeks. The cream contains sweet almond and apricot kernel oils and is very smooth, easy to apply and non greasy. Be careful not to use excessive quantities of the cream as a small amount covers a large skin area.
My skin felt very soft and smooth after application and in particular the small patches of psoriasis on my elbows became less rough and unsightly.
I even extended the cream's use to my feet, applying it to the rough and dry skin around my heels and on the soles of my feet. After several applications there was a marked improvement in appearance and skin texture.
Natural Antiseptic gel
I applied this gel twice daily directly to the areas of skin where I suffer most from psoriasis: at the back of my neck extending into my scalp and around and in my right ear. The gel was excellent as it reduced the itchiness, flakiness and tightness of the skin, which are symptoms of this condition.
The Natural Anitseptic Gel dried in minutes without leaving any greasy residue, which was ideal, as I was able to use it on my scalp without my hair looking dull and greasy. The small bottle was also a perfect size to put in one's handbag for use during the day.
Natural Vitamin E Cream
This cream contains calendula and rosemary and I used it twice daily on my face as a moisturiser. Initially I thought it rather thick and sticky but soon learned to apply it sparingly, as it was easily absorbed into my skin leaving it smooth and moisturised. The cream also provided an excellent base for foundation make-up.
