Getting intimate with…DermaVeen

In a country known for its sun, high humidity and haze, its not surprising to learn that dry, itchy and sensitive skin/scalp are conditions suffered by many of us. In fact 59% of people reportedly suffer from at least one skin condition during their lifetime. But what many people don’t realize is how easy many of these common conditions can be under control or proactively managed over a longer term.

Do you know what is DermaVeen? DermaVeen is Australia's best-selling therapeutic range of skincare products and is ideal for use on the dry, itchy and sensitive skin that is associated with eczema, psoriasis, ichthyosis, rashes and other dry skin conditions (source from Talkeczema). You may wonder what’s so special about DermaVeen? All DermaVeen products contain natural colloidal oatmeal – simply oats that are ground into a fine powder. Colloidal oatmeal is a natural product that has been shown to:

  • Have an absorbent cleaning action to gently cleanse the skin 
  • Have an anti-pruritic (anti-itch) action to relieve dry skin problems 
  • Soothe, soften and moisturise skin thereby reducing redness and irritation 
  • Reduce water loss from skin to help keep skin supple and moist 

Colloidal Oatmeal

DermaVeen can be used by everyone in the family, from the youngest, including babies, to the oldest. As stated at the back of the packaging "A unique formulation containing natural colloidal oatmeal that gently soothes, protects, hydrates, pH balanced, won't clog pores, it's soap free and has no lanolin, parabens, dyes or fragrances. And it's of course dermatologist tested.”

As highlighted NO lanolin, parabens, dyes or fragrances

Today I want to share with you my experience after using the following products for a week:-

DermaVeen Shower and Bath Oil

The texture is a creamy oil with small bits of oatmeal throughout that glides on smoothly, cleanses, moisturises and emulsifies when you rinse it off so you don’t look like you have escaped from an oil slick! After showering your left feeling moisturised with a light and pleasant fragrance of sugared almonds. I use to have those dry sun spots patches on my arm but after a week they are now slowly disappearing and my skin is smoother too! My 10 year old daughter gets heat rash easily and after using this we have manage to keep those nasty heat rash at bay!

Hint: Lather with a sponge for a light exfoliation; it makes skin more receptive to body lotion.

As far as I can tell this is a new shower must have and will be on a repurchase list for as far as I can see!

DermaVeen Soap Free Wash

As its name implies DermaVeen Soap Free Wash is pretty much gentle without any harsh ingredients and doesn’t strip the skin off natural oils. Has a mild almondy scent and the consistency of shampoo. Tilt your palm, and it will drip off. It does larther, but not much. It gets rid of makeup, dirt and grime easily and quickly, and leaves my face feeling hydrated. It leaves a slight film on the skin after rinsing off and my skin feels comfortable. No stretching, no dryness, no discomfort. Two thumbs up.

DermaVeen Oatmeal Shampoo

My 10 year old daughter has a VERY dry scalp which grossly causes flaking and occasional itchiness. It’s not only inconvenient, it’s frustrating, embarrassing and down right EEEWWW! Having stumbled across Dermaveen Oatmeal shampoo meant to soothe dry and irritating scalp I was excited to try it out on her.

The texture is creamy but once lathered it is not at all soapy as you would expect in a typical shampoo. She doesn’t really like the almond scent but can live with it for after rinsing off, she can feel that her hair is smoother and has less tangles. After a week I can see her scalp is hydrated and moisturised no more itchy scalp and flakes! Yay!

DermaVeen Intensive Hand Cream ./. DermaVeen Moisturising Cream

Our hands are one of the first things to give away our age: they are constantly exposed to the elements yet often neglected! I hate hand cream. Even when I moisturise the rest of my body after showering, I always wash my hands because I don't like the greasy feeling of moisturiser on my hands. This often leads to my hands suffering but after trying DermaVeen Intensive Hand Cream I’m changed as its non-greasy cream! My hands are now pampered and looking very moisturised ;) 

Pampered & moisturised hands 

Finally someone has invented a DermaVeen Moisturising Cream in a tube form so much more convenient to bring around in a bag and whip up for use anytime! A heavy and rich body cream great for hard-to-hydrate areas like elbows and the soles of your feet! I think it would be good as diaper rash cream too since its cream base and does not dissolve off easily when in contact with water.

  4. I love to win this for my mum! This will keep her skin moisturised and reduce the irritation on her skin due to the weather :)

  5. This would definitely benefit my entire family a lot in protecting and improving our skin health. My hubby has extremely sensitive skin, which tends to become itchy and break out in rashes when exposed to certain substances or when hot for too long in the sun. He has to look for absolute 100% cotton clothing whenever he shops for clothes, as other material tends to feel extremely uncomfortable and scratchy on his skin. I hope to win this and see at least some improvement for his condition soon. DermaVeen will also benefit my skin and my young son skin as well, keeping them moisturised and soft. This will be a great gift for my entire family!

  6. Dear Wendy, I would love to win this hamper for my whole family! My sister has similar condition as your daughter. She has really dry scalp that makes her itch and she is often found scratching unconsciously while sleeping. Whenever she wakes up in the morning, flakes will be found, lying all around the bed. Due to the flaking problem, she has phobia wearing black or dark coloured shirts. I hope that I can win this to let her try out the amazing Dermaveen Oatmeal shampoo, to solve her persistent scalp issue! DermaVeen Moisturising Cream will be very suitable for my mum and I, as we both have dry, cracked feet. Due to the nature of our skin, our skin tends to crack easily especially the soles of our feet. The DermaVeen Intensive Hand Cream would be well-suited for my mum, who has been working very hard all these years to bring up my sister and I. Her hands are dry, thick and rough due to the nature of her work. I bought for her the Vaseline's nourishing lotion. However, she too, hate the greasy feeling of Vaseline's cream! So, in the end, I gave it to my cousin. I hope that I could win this Dermaveen hamper and give it to my mum for the upcoming Mother's day to thank her for working so hard to bring us up! Thank you Wendy and RxR for hosting this awesome giveaway!!! :)
