Sufferers of eczema are all too familiar with the need to incessantly scratch the painful rashes and sores on their skin, which of course, only makes the situation worse.
Sarah Rudd, like many others, had tried an endless amount of creams and lotions to fix her 4-month old's skin condition. She had little luck until she discovered Lush's Dream Cream.
Sarah claims that her son is now, miraculously, eczema-free.
Rudd took to Facebook to share several before-and-after photos of her son, claiming that Lush's $30 Dream Cream had completely cleared his severe eczema.
She initially posted a picture of her son, Cash, with scabs on his face and asked her Facebook followers for suggestions to improve her son's skin condition. She wrote that she had tried a slew of products but had seen no improvement - then, just two weeks later, Rudd posted more images of Cash - but with a completely clear visage.
"Final post about the baby’s skin, most of you saw he was a hot mess last month with the eczema he’d had since birth.... nothing we were prescribed worked, even hydrocortisone cream didn’t touch it," she wrote in the now-viral social media post.
"Tried dairy free formula, Dermol, Nizarol, Aveeno, Oilatum.... nothing made a difference. He didn’t sleep for 4 months because he scratched non stop all night," Rudd continued.
"After a shout out we were recommended Dream Cream by Lush and gave it a go; it’s transformed his skin and he’s now completely and utterly eczema free. For anyone else having a hard time, it’s done the job for us."
Cash's speedy transformation has only bolstered Dream Cream's cult status. As of now, Rudd's Facebook post has over 51,000 shares, and Lush has had trouble keeping the lotion in stock. Dream Cream boasts a four-and-a-half out of five-star rating, and judging by the glowing reviews, it sure seems to be the real deal.
Out of 700 reviews, one reads "This stuff is THE most amazing lotion I have ever put on my skin... It is the lotion to end all lotions."
Others have corroborated Rudd's claim that the lotion is a miracle-worker for skin conditions like eczema, with one happy customer writing "This is by far, the best hand cream I've ever had. I've had severe eczema on my hands since I was a child and I've never had a hand lotion that worked as well as this."
"I have been searching for a cream for months for my 6 month old babies eczema and dry skin and saw this recommended on a forum/ discussion board. We were at our wits end and didn't know where to turn after all the doctors creams had failed. We no longer wanted to use steroid creams so started to look at natural products [...] I was sceptical about dream cream but had read the other brilliant reviews. They are well deserved. Within 24 hours his skin was much improved after morning and night applications. 3 days later you couldn't tell he had eczema and all his dry flaky skin had gone. 5 days later his skin is silky smooth, baby soft for the first time and almost impossible to see where his eczema was. I am glad we found this option at last."
Well, I guess it's time to pay a visit to Lush...
