I was very pleased to be offered the chance to choose a selection of 3 products from HelloSkin free to review. The lady at HelloSkin had seen that I have previously blogged about Flexitol footcare products which is a line they stock.
HelloSkin is an online store selling skincare products suitable for those people with psoriasis, eczema, acne and dry skin conditions. The site has been designed so that you can easily shop by need, type or ingredient. Alternatively there is a product finder which is refinable by age group, body part, symptom, need and when to use.
I initially chose the following three products
DermaTherapy Fitted Sheet
Moisturising Cotton Sleep Socks
Neutrogena T/Gel 2-in-1 Dandruff Shampoo Plus Conditioner
But as my first choice of socks were out of stock at the time, I swapped to
Jasmine 100% Silk Moisturising Socks for dry and cracked skin
The products were dispatched on a next day service and arrived well-packed. I spotted that they also offer a free standard delivery service, which I always appreciate.
So I’ll start with the DermaTherapy Fitted Sheet which is billed as being the first clinically proven Therapeutic Bedding. I chose this in a king size which currently retails for £84.95 but it is also available in single and double sizes. The fabric feels amazingly smooth compared to standard sheets, but to really understand this, you should look at the zoomed in image of the weave. The HelloSkin website focusses on the benefits for those with sensitive skin conditions, but the packaging also indicates that it is ideal for those undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Pity I hadn’t heard about it a few years earlier, as when son1 was diagnosed with leukaemia, I thought I was making the right choice to buy best quality pure Egyptian cotton bedsheets for him.
They also stock duvet covers, pillow case, flat sheets and sleep sacs. I tend to often wake up sweaty in the middle of the night and I found that this sheet is very effective at wicking away heat and moisture. Now I just need the rest of the range, as my ordinary duvet meant I was still sweaty above, although much more comfortable underneath. Significantly more expensive than standard bedding, but definitely worth the investment for those that it helps to a much better night’s sleep in my opinion. It is 50% polyester and 50% polyamide and is so easy to fit on your mattress compared to most sheets. I actually had to double check the packet to make sure I hadn’t accidentally got super-king rather than king size. I washed it on a 60 degree cycle and tumble-dried it on low. It came out almost crease-free, so I didn’t even need to iron. And the packaging indicates that it will withstand washing upto 90 degrees.
Next the socks, which fit size 3-7. I’ve been planning to get a pair of moisturising socks for ages, but had never got round to it. The idea behind moisturising socks is to apply your usual footcare product and then the socks will help the absorption whilst you sleep. I’m loving these. I can definitely say they work. I’ve blogged before about how dry and cracked my feet are, as per image on left. Well I’ve seen a marked improvement in the mornings since I started wearing the socks, as per image on right. At £7.99 for a pair, they are great value in my opinion. Wish I’d got some sooner. Although the socks are silk, they can still be machine washed on a low 30 degree setting, but I chose to hand-wash them.
And finally the shampoo. I frequently get a flare up of flaky scalp and have tried many different brands of anti-dandruff shampoo, but this is the first time, I’ve tried this brand. At the time of testing, I only had a very mild case of dandruff (as per top left image), which I’m happy to say it treated. I do prefer using combined shampoo and conditioner like this rather than two separate products. This shampoo lathered up well and also had a nice fragrance and my hair felt soft and tangle-free afterwards. This was the 125ml size which currently retails for £3.99 and it is also available in a 250ml size. More expensive than most shampoo at the supermarket but competitive with salon brands.
So in summary, I was very happy with all three products and will certainly be using this site in the future.

Love Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion – 300ml

I like the sound of this. Having bad feet so the skin gets really hard on the bottom (sorry not a sob story just an explanation) I think this would help. https://helloskinshop.co.uk/products/aveeno-lotion?variant=22646475463
https://helloskinshop.co.uk/products/aveeno-moisturising-package-for-dry-and-sensitive-skin?variant=42266381331I love this!
https://helloskinshop.co.uk/products/aveeno-moisturising-creamy-oil?variant=34583727815 I love this stuff, it’s great for babies and children and for me as i suffer with very dry skin
i love the look of these products
I couldn’t live without this for my eczema 🙂
I suffer with psoriasis and my daughter has extremely bad eczema all over her body, her face and scalp. We have tried many over the counter lotions and potions and most haven’t helped her a bit! I have heard many good things about Balneum Plus, so I really like the look of this product.
I use Cetraben on my eczema, it is really good at keeping my hands soft and moisturized. https://helloskinshop.co.uk/products/cetraben-lotion?variant=34692817735
As a psoriasis sufferer, I love this product the best as it really keeps it at bay. https://helloskinshop.co.uk/products/epaderm-cream?variant=22645185159
My favourite product from Hello Skin is Oilatum Scalp Anti-Dandruff Shampoo
What a great website, I am a Psoriasis sufferer, my sister is a lot worse than me too, I like the look of the Art Naturals Scalp 18 Coal Tar Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for psoriasis, when I have a flare up my scalp gets it the worst.
Eucerin Replenishing Body Wash
Love Aveeno moisturising cream for dry and sensitive skin https://helloskinshop.co.uk/products/aveeno-cream?variant=22315114887 Leaves my skin feeling really soft.
https://helloskinshop.co.uk/products/aveeno-moisturising-package-for-dry-and-sensitive-skin?variant=42266381331 I love the Aveeno products. My daughter has bad exzema but unfortunately also has ADHD and sensory issues so licks products off her. I love the fact the products work for her but do not contain anything too dangerous with her putting everything in her mouth.
I love the look of these. Since having my son I don’t have time for much more then a quick shower and I think not having long baths have made my feet worse then ever ! These would be fab for those short of time !
