    Isn't this just aqueous cream, that has been available in every pharmacy for generations?

    Can't offer any user experience, but I buy all sorts of miracle creams for my niece to try out (she has eczema). From here: http://www.aqua-max.co.uk/products/aquamax-cream/

    New sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS)-free Aquamax® Cream is a leave-on emollient for use in eczema, psoriasis and other dry skin conditions.
    It has been specifically formulated to exclude common irritants found in so many other emollient treatments. With a high lipid content, it provides an effective barrier that stops moisture escaping from the skin and prevents irritants entering.

    Aquamax® Cream is free from:
    • SLS
    • Fragrances
    • Lanolin
    • Parabens
    • Chlorocresol
    • Isopropyl myristate
    • Other common irritants, sensitisers or detergents
    Being free from all sorts of baddies (and suitable for pregnant/lactating women too) may be its selling point.

    Also, from here: http://www.aqua-max.co.uk/all-products/

    What’s in it? Purified water, white soft paraffin BP, cetostearyl alcohol, liquid paraffin, Polysorbate 60 and phenoxyethanol.

    Aquamax Contains:

    • No soap
    • No detergents
    • No parabens
    • No fragrance
    Edit: CuddlesTC on HUKD says that Aqueous Cream is no longer recommended for eczema (didn't know this).

    Hey Loulou thanks for your post re the aquamax, I never got on with aqueous cream, always smelled too strong and burned when I put it on (not to mention having to dig around in a tub! Most unhygienic!) My hands have developed a few eczema patches this last week so I picked some of this up earlier, popped some on very light scent and no burning, I think the being SLS free is what makes this different & hopefully it'll help , thanks again.
    Booo!!!

    Just to report, the aquamax cream cleared up the admittedly small patches of eczema on my hand over the weekend. Been using it as a hand cream over the last few days and my hands are softer than they have been in ages, obviously everyone's different but I'd recommend trying this if you have sensitive skin. (Obviously anything major get checked out by the Docs)

    The Aquamax Cream is also in Argyle Street as well as Union Street, for any Weegies looking for this (was in both yesterday evening).

    The Honey coated Cashews are lovely, I'll definitely buy those again.

    My eczema was terrible last year all over my face and body, but I discovered Dr Organic range at Holland & Barrett from a review online for eczema and now it's practically gone, just get abit in my arm folds/behind knees when it's hot. It's not the cheapest but when bought on the buy one get one half price offer it's not too bad! I use the body lotion/souffle, and face creams. They have travel size of the body lotion for about £2 so it would be worth a try! I can't stand the feeling of the thick emollient creams/aqueous creams and they never seemed to help me. I've tried most of the ranges now and I think the manuka honey, argan oil and olive oil ranges are best, it's worth a try sorry to jump on the poundland thread but I recommend this to everyone when I read the word eczema
