I’m very excited to share with you a review on our new CV Skinlabs Rescue + Relief Spray-posted today! Below you’ll find the highlights of this review by retired chiropractor Karen Lee on her blog, “EcoKaren: Smart Ideas for Green Living and Handmade Life.” Karen tried our new Rescue + Relief Spray on her own child’s eczema flare-ups, and was apparently very impressed with the results. I’ll let her speak for herself! Please check out her entire review on the EcoKaren blog, and if you’ve had an experience you’d like to share with CV Skinlabs products, I’d love to hear from you.
Review from EcoKaren
This is a long review…just warning you. Because this Rescue + Relief spray by CV Skinlabs is just so magical and amazing that I have to tell you everything about it! So grab some coffee and read on.
My kids suffer from moderate to severe Eczema, all year around. I accidentally discovered how foods might play a role in exacerbating their symptoms a few years ago but since then, we discovered, through allergy testing, that there are environmental factors that aggravate their symptoms, BIG time. And sometimes their skin flares up for no reason, it seems. I mean, I’m sure there are r.e.a.s.o.n.s – it’s just that, we don’t know what they are sometimes….
Well, their “flare ups” seem almost daily, especially in the winter & spring, and when they play sports. And, unfortunately, the Northesast is the WORST for Eczema. Milder and not too humid temperate areas, like the Southeast, is the best. Stress does cause flare ups too but environmental issues play a bigger role, in my kids. Ask a college kid and a High School Junior. They know s.t.r.e.s.s….but it’s seasonal allergies that wreak havoc on their skin more than the stress.
I am always on the look out for some magical lotions, soaps, shampoos and creams that will either calm their skin when they are inflamed, or prevent flare ups.
So, when I read that Britta Aragon, the author of When Cancer Hits, a book I just reviewed on Monday (there is still time to enter the giveaway!), created this magical potion for inflamed and irritated skin called Rescue+Relief Spray, I was th.rill.ed! I was going to review her book anyway so I asked her about the spray. She was generous enough to send me a bottle try. Yahoo!!
Trying Rescue + Relief
What is “Rescue + Relief” and does it work?
This refreshing, milk-like emulsion coats the skin with moisture while calming and soothing flushed, sensitive skin. The relief is almost immediate when applied to hot inflamed areas. When my kids skin get this red and angry, they are too tender and delicate to touch. The R+R spray brought instant relief from itching and burning skin. I can imagine how it can help soothe skin from sun burns and even from cooking mishaps.
Here are the photos to prove what I mean.
Now, do you believe how magical this spray is? I wondered, “What is in this thing????“, since it worked like a miracle in just two days.
I know what you are thinking. How could all these plant based natural ingredients work so well on something only steroid cream can calm?
My thoughts are exactly but I am NOT surprised. Mother nature has great resources for everything we need. You just have to know the right combination of ingredients to use on the right condition.
Oh, and her spray was featured on April issue of Real Simple magazine! I trust that magazine and I was so happy to see it featured on one of my favorite magazines!
What Do I think or Rescue + Relief?
I LOVE Rescue + Relief spray!! Like I said, it is magical. I couldn’t believe the red and angry inflamed areas started to disappear within hours. The thin milky spray has a pleasant odor and it has a very refreshing natural scent. Not chemically induced or artificial smell. It dries quickly and it seemed to get absorbed rather quickly, without dripping down to a waste. It left the skin very soft and smooth and my kids said it felt cool almost immediately.
When I took my kids to an acupuncturist, he told me to give them foods that are cooling to reduce internal heat. It only makes sense to apply something that will cool their outside too when their skin is inflamed.
Have you tried Rescue + Relief, or any of the other CV Skinlabs products? What did you think?
