Extreme Dry Skin
Skin or Fragrance Allergies
After Radiation or Chemotherapy
I was sent the Super Butter Moisture Cream, the Skin Free Firming Matrix Creme for Face, and the Extra Moisturizing Soap and Shampoo Bar. I really like the moisture cream. It is a lighter cream, but it is still very moisturizing and does not leave a greasy film on your skin, at all.
The soap and shampoo bar is very moisturizing too. It sudsed up very well and rinses off clean. Firming Matrix Creme, I let my mom review it, and she absolutely loves this product. She has been using it for about 2 1/2 weeks and said the skin on her face and neck appear firmer and her skin feels so much smoother.
So, I am very pleased with the products that were sent to me. They all worked out very well, and I am interested in buying more in the future.
About Skin Free (taken off their site):
All products distributed by Blue Ridge Gypsy Studio™ are designed and formulated by owner and practicing pharmacist, Julie Hilton, who has over 30 years of experience in compounding and natural skin care. “I started the Studio in 2000 when my husband and I moved to the Blue Ridge of Virginia. Our friends were calling us “gypsies”, so the name evolved naturally.”Working in a typical retail pharmacy setting, I was constantly frustrated when asked to recommend products for patients with difficult skin problems, especially those with fragrance allergies. I recognized a void in the market and knew that I could offer effective and affordable products to fill it. Atopic dermatitis, eczema, and psoriasis are life-long conditions and need to be addressed in the long term. Patients with diabetes or renal disease, pregnant women, babies, the elderly, and patients treated with radiation therapy can all benefit from quality natural products. Even people who just have dry, sensitive skin can appreciate wholesome natural skincare products.”
“Since I personally suffer from chronic allergies and eczema, I understand that it is very important for people with these conditions to maintain the integrity of their skin and reduce their exposure to antigens to help prevent acute outbreaks. These diseases can be quite debilitating and cause increased depression, work loss, and pain.”
Naturally occurring vegetable oils and butter contain indigenous nutrients, antioxidants, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), and antibacterial agents that petroleum-based oils just don’t have. Natural oils absorb into the skin and do not feel greasy. They also come from replenishable sources, which is a great environmental concern.
“I hope that SkinFree™ products will become widely used and be truly helpful to the ever-increasing patient population who need products such as these.”
