So Michelle posted about this lotion a little while ago. It is called Renew, by Melaleuca. She said it has really helped her daughters' eczema. I went to her house one day and saw for myself how much better her baby's skin was and wondered if it would help my psoriasis, which has gotten really bad lately. She was kind enough to give me a little trial size lotion to take home. In the first day I noticed my psoriasis looked less irritated and red and my skin felt smoother. I've been using it less than a week now and I'd say there is about a 50% improvement in my skin. It's not all scaly and flaky, the redness is seriously reduced, and I rarely itch any more. I can't believe the difference it has made in such a short time, I can only imagine how it'll be after extended use. I was looking for some kind of miracle to make my skin look better before we go to Cancun in a few weeks and this is it! (And holy cow I just realized we are leaving for Cancun in less than 3 weeks!) And to make it even better, this lotion is just a fraction of the price of the lotion I have been using. The cream I was using before was $40+ for 1oz! One measly little ounce that I had to go light on so I wouldn't go through it too quick and have to buy more. I could've gone through that in a week if I'd used it as often as I really needed. Well, I can get Renew for....$27 for 2-20oz bottles! Holy cow! I get 40x the amount of lotion for almost $15 less! How cool is that!? I am definitely going to be using this from now on!
