Product Review: CV Skinlabs Products for Sensitive Skin
I'm happy to review two products all cancer patients and survivors should know about. They're both from CV Skinlabs and they are specially formulated for sensitive and wounded skin.
Firstly, we need a product review disclaimer: This is not a paid review, although I was given complimentary samples of the products. On a personal note, I am not now, nor have I ever received chemotherapy or radiation treatments. Therefore, I cannot speak to the effectiveness of these products on someone who has received such treatments.
The first product, Rescue + Relief Spray, is "advanced therapy for burned, wounded and irritated skin." I put it in the refrigerator as suggested on the bottle and it really soothed a mild sunburn I got from gardening (why do I tell my kids to put on sunscreen and then forget to do so myself?)
Also, one of my kids had a mild heat rash and again this product came to the rescue. It's cooling, refreshing and soothes burning and itching. I'm keeping it in the refrigerator as first aid for bites, burns, and shaving burn. Again, I can't speak to how it helps sooth skin subjected to cancer treatments, but I would definitely give it a try.
The second product is Calming Moisture For Face, Neck and Scalp. This super-rescue moisturizer helps to sooth dehydrated and/or damaged skin. It's creamy, whipped and goes on without feeling greasy. My face actually feels "dewy" after using it. I use it at night, but not in the morning because it doesn't contain sunscreen.
Again, I can't speak to the effects of the moisturizer on skin subjected to cancer treatments, but I can say that both products are formulated under very strict guidelines for safety and non-toxicity. In fact, every CV Skinlabs product contains three very special ingredients - turmeric, alpha-bisabolol and reishi mushroom. This "Tri-Rescue Skin Complex" offers "a powerful combination of anti-inflammatory, wound-healing and skin-soothing constituents. Working together, these ingredients encourage repair, healing, and restoration."
I like that these products contain only natural, organic and safe ingredients. I've become more aware of the toxic chemicals in my home, food and personal products, especially after reading Britta's book, When Cancer Hits, Your Complete Guide to Taking Care of YOU Through Treatment.
Definitely give these products a try if you have sensitive or irritated skin or, if like me, you are trying to minimize the amount of toxic chemicals in your medicine cabinet. Are you more aware of toxic chemicals in your life now? What are you doing to try to minimize them?
