bepanthen ointment in your face

I know what you are thinking, baby bottom cream on your face? Yes! I use it on my eyes, chapped  lips, dry cuticles... in fact, I use it on everywhere where I have damaged skin or I feel a painful zit starting to grow.

How I discovered this wonder cream:
After the removal of my eyelash extensions, my eyes dint stop itching, so I used the cream around my eyes for few days, because it is created to stop baby bottoms itching and prevent them from nappy rash.

Well I thought, whats good for a baby bottom, its still good enough for my face.... :)
... and you know what, after only using this cream for two nights,  my fine lines actually have disappeared completely. The skin around the eye area was really smooth and firm . Let me tell you, no high end eye cream has ever managed that.

I use the Imagine skin care, while I find them very good and effective, they do dry out my face at times and since they are very rich in glycolic acid, my skin is always peeling a bit, which is a good thing (new skin).  Now I apply the cream on the effected area, and voila the peeling is gone and it soothes the redness.

I only use it at night, because its very rich and greasy and it would smear only  my eye make up during the daytime.

Although the ingredients are nothing special , dexpanthenol makes a difference. Rather than just making a film on the skin, the product does have real healing properties.

For only  Euro 3.90  a 30 ml tube,  I will definitely continue using this ointment forever!

I also use the dermo roller once a week and I mix the ointment together with Weleda Skinfood and and Elisabeth Arden 8 hour cream as a  after care treatment to soothe my face and speed up the healing process

Here is the video for the micro needling  part - just in case you are interested.
