Skin. It’s something we take for granted everyday. We may believe that we take care of it but it’s easy to forget how fragile it is. Well, that is until you cut yourself, burn yourself, gain weight, lose weight, have a baby etc – it’s only then that you really notice how easy it is to damage and permanently scar one of your most vital organs. I’m always on the look out for a miracle product that builds up the health of my skin, makes it soft and elasticised, and generally leaves it in good condition. I was recently invited to try a Derma Eraze treatment for scars and stretch marks but I’m a bit of a wimp. I don’t particularly like needles and I don’t like pain so when I informed the PR company of this they sent me a bottle of Derma Eraze Miracle Oil instead.Derma Eraze Miracle Oil is an intense moisturiser for dry skin. It comes in a nice, clean, blue pump bottle that has a very decent dispensing mechanism so you can really control how much comes out. I’ve used oil moisturisers before so that aspect didn’t scare me or confuse me but my initial use did.
To start with, I didn’t really like it. I’m going to be completely honest. The first few times I used it I felt a little greasy and a it didn’t seem to be having any affect. I used it straight after the shower, using a small amount on slightly damp skin and really focused on some problem areas but the first week was a bit of a bust.
But then something just kind of happened. After the first week my skin started to accept the oil. I no longer felt greasy after use. My skin would absorb the oil and feel baby soft. A stubborn patch of dry skin on my knee that I’ve had for years disappeared and my skin just felt fresher, newer and smoother.
I started to use it for almost everything. I used it when I trimmed my cuticles, to moisturise my dry heels, on my dry, cracked hands and it was amazing. I started using the oil once every three days and you could still feel the benefits before the next application.
The oil is made from olive oil, avocado oil, almond oil and vitamin E so if you have a nut allergy stay well away. It does have a very herbal scent to it and it’s a great product to use for a massage and trick your boyfriend into moisturising his skin (and your back!)
I really wasn’t fond of this product when I first used it but I think it has earned a place in my routine now. I will definitely use it on my feet, on stubborn dry patches and for a proper all over moisturising treat. I may even get my brother to try it as he has very dry skin on his cheeks.
It’s a large bottle and a month’s usage has barely made a dent in it so the £20 price tag is well worth it. If you do buy it and don’t get along with it, stick with it, one day it will surprise you. I honestly can’t believe how quickly this product became a no-goer to a winner for me and that it removed some problem patches that I’ve been trying to get rid of for years.
