I have rosacea and eczema so my skin is very sensitive. This product heals my dermatitis breakouts and calms the rosacea. The calendula is the secret. I have been looking for a product with this in it for a long time. In less than a week, my skin has improved 70%. Love this stuff.

This is the best product I have found for my 5 month old sons severe eczema. We tried everything-cortisone creams, Aquaphor and Eucerin - nothing worked. Within days of trying this product my son's eczema cleared up. I use it every day-twice a day-as a moisturizer in the morning and after his bath at night. It smells great and is lightweight. The only downfall about this product is that it is very pricey. But my nanny dislikes the fragrance. It works and is worth the cost.

Honestly I don't like them.
I've used the sunscreen and I felt the smell was over-powering and did not blend in well.
I've also used the diaper cream and feel it's too liquidy and also has and unpleasant oder.
Plus the price is very high for all their products.

What if I'm allergic to calendula? This means I can't use this cream, right?

Um Eve don't use anything you are allergic to.
