Now that it is March, I am really hoping that warmer weather is on its way, because the last couple of months have wreaked havoc with my skin. It has been so cold that my skin has been super dry and even itchy in patches and so I was really thankful when O'Keeffe's sent me some of their skincare products to try out.
As always with brands I haven't tried before, I like to give a little background information. O'Keeffe's Company go back over 20 years to an arid region on the California-Oregon border known as the Klamath Basin. Bill O'Keeffe was a rancher and a diabetic who loved rigorous work, however this took its toll on this hands and feet. Due to his chronically dry skin, his daughter Tara applied her pharmacist skills and along with her Dad, spent years creating and testing different formulas until she came across what is now known as O'Keeffe's skincare.
Starting with the O'Keeffe's Skin Repair Body Lotion (£8.99 for 190ml), this is a non-greasy, unscented and hypoallergenic lotion which heals, relieves and repairs extremely dry, itchy skin. During cold months, the skin on my legs gets so dry and flaky that I end up itching it in my sleep so badly that I have made myself bleed many times, so this has been so great for me, and my Dad too. He suffers from chronically dry and itchy skin because of some of the medication he has to take for his arthritis and this has helped him out so much. As soon as you apply the lotion, which feels silky smooth and not at all thick or heavy, it soaks into the skin and I noticed after just one or two uses that my skin felt instantly soothed and soon got a lot healthier. The Skin Repair does come in larger packaging but you a small amount goes a long way so this is going to last you ages.
