Dry skin

If you ask your Dr for 'Double Base' - two sizes one like a toothpaste tube - the other is a large pump that lasts for ages.
You can use it every day as its oil free, so wont affect your skin ie pimples.
NHS do have it on books so you can get it free from your GP.
I use it as i was getting itchy, solved the problem, now keep pump in house all the time.
If you have very dry skin, you can put it on before bath or shower and again after.
Its great
