Review: Curel Intensive Healing Cream

Retail Price: = Average of $10. More or less depending on where you purchase.

Today I am reviewing the Curel Intensive Healing Cream.

This is a daily fragrance free, hypo-allergenic cream that is formulated for extra dry and sensitive skin. It is pediatrician approved for children 6 months of age and older. 9 out of 10 dermatologists recommend. And it is also recommended for those who suffer from dry skin due to diabetes; Curel is a partner of the American Diabetes Association. 

The cream itself feels is fairly thick in consistency. I would compare it to that of a sunscreen texture and feel. It goes on smoothly, and easily works into your skin without having that greasy feel. Honestly at first, I really didn't like how thick it felt on my skin. I am used to the thinner moisturizers that I use on a daily basis, so this was a pretty big change for me. But after some uses, and getting adjusted to the feeling of it on my skin, I quite like it. My skin feels instantly hydrated and supple once applied. It lasts for hours without having to reapply. I put mine on in the morning, and didn't put any more on until the night time.  With the colder season coming ahead, I know for a fact I will be using this cream more and more to help keep my skin soft and supple, and to protect against the elements.

I did try this cream out on my legs, hands, elbows, shoulders and declate. These areas I would suggest using the product on, as I had no issues. I myself suffer from dry skin on my face, so I tried using it for that as well. When I applied it on my face, it would cake up, and look very crumbly. I would suggest only using it on any dry patches on your face at night, but for day use, no way.

Overall I am very pleased with this cream, and I will definitely be using it up during these upcoming cold months. If you or someone you know suffers from dry skin, I highly suggest checking out this cream. 

Pros: Easily available. Works wonderfully. Easy to use. Good for babies and children. Good for diabetics. Available online and in stores.
Cons: A bit on the expensive side. Not good being used on the face.
