I have been buying Labo SVR products on the Continent for some time as I find them gentler and more effective than the leading French pharmacy brand I used to use. I recently bought a goody-bag of it for a friend as a house-guest thank you and she was delighted. This person has two kids with eczema and who regularly chases them around the house attempting to slather them in creams to alleviate the itching and redness. She is a big honcho in beauty and now uses nothing else - the girls can only be convinced if it's this. What I like is that it apparently has 48 hour lasting nourishment so it does cut down the number of bath time battles and means that I can be lazy about putting it on - I just never have enough time to preen. I also use this balm on my own children as a face and body cream and as a rich, glossy-skin-making body butter for myself throughout the year, even in summer. It just beats everything else hands down, even aftersun, as it is not slimy or greasy but very rich Also no silicones (essential for me as I tend to break out from them) and just the gentlest of coconut fragrances. I think this is because of the coconut oil it contains. If you have sensitive skin, less = more and this is definitely one of those times - I've read the ingredients and there are only a few, and no nasties so I feel ok using it on all generations.
