bioderma atoderm

biodermaatoderm1Even though I’ve experienced cold, dry, Canadian winters my entire life, I still struggle with the skin problems it creates. My legs especially get extremely dry and itchy and I am always excited to try out products that will help combat that. For the past few weeks the whole family has been using these new Bioderma Atoderm products specifically created for dry (or very dry) sensitive skin and I’ve gotta say… they’re all amazing.

Allergen-free, Soap-free, Paraben-free scented formula with no artificial colouring, Naturally bluish colour, Hypoallergenic

Like I said above, the whole family has been using this and I have noticed that even if I forget to apply lotion right after a bath, everyone is less itchy and no one feels like sandpaper. It foams up nicely with a puff, and the scent is extremely delicate and clean. I love the pump top as we waste less product and the bottle is huge so it will last us quite a while.

Ultra-Nourishing Balm

Atoderm PP Baume prevents severe and recurring skin dryness. Its Écodéfensine® patented complex regulates the skin’s ecosystem and preserves its biological balance.

[BI 560]

Fragrance-free formula, Paraben-free, Hypoallergenic

My husband was extremely excited about this because he has some damage to the lipid layer on his face and this restores lipids… he’s been using it for a few weeks and has found that it has reduced the redness and his skin isn’t as dry. It absorbs very quick in to my skin and even 12 hours after applying I still feel moisturized. One of the product benefits they list is that it improves the patient’s quality of life due to scratching in your sleep and I can absolutely say that it has.

Moisturizing Stick

Scented formula: delicious raspberry fragrance, Allergen-free, Paraben-free, Hypoallergenic

I can never have enough lipbalms in my life – and this one is fantastic. I love that it’s clear and so I don’t have to worry when I’m applying it on the go, I feel comfortable using it on the kids, and the raspberry scent is amazing. It feels very light on my lips and they feel hydrated for a couple hours after applying.

Overall I am extremely happy with these products, and if you are trying to combat dry skin I highly suggest checking them out!

gosling’s chopsaver

gosling's chopsaverLittle known fact about me – I love to play trumpet. I started when I was 7 or 8 playing cornet (a smaller version of a trumpet) at the church I attended, and then moved on to playing trumpet in junior high and high school. I ended up losing mine at some point and my husband surprised me with a new one for Christmas 4 years ago. One of the things that has always amazed me was the beating my lips would take after long sessions of playing and practicing, so I was very excited to test out Gosling’s ChopSaver.

Dan Gosling is a professional trumpet player and was inspired to make this product after a conversation he had with a student who injured himself during a performance, and it led to him spending 2 months in his kitchen mixing natural healing elements and plant-based moisturizers until he found exactly what he was looking for.

One of the big ingredients is Arnica, a natural healing agent derived from a sunflower which reduces bruising and swelling. It also has shea butter, mango butter, avocado oil, aloe, citrus oils and grapeseed oil. It has SPF 15, smells like citrus and feels amazing on my lips. I don’t only use it before and after practice, I use it constantly and even with the extremely cold dry weather we are having lately they feel better than they have in a long time. My husband is a lip balm addict and I have been hiding it from him because I know if he tries it he’ll want it – thankfully they sell it at Long & McQuade so I’ll be able to get more! It’s also available at CVS/pharmacies and online.
