Feel strange sharing such a personal story but if it can help others find relief I’m happy… Life is pretty shitty when everything hurts!
For over 25 years I have suffered from dermatitis, of which the past 8 have been particularly severe. I’ve seen doctors, dermatologists, naturopaths and tried pretty much every ointment, lotion and potion going (ever tasted Chinese herbs) and bleach baths with no relief.
I’ve had allergy tests, courses of 50mg cortisone tablets, antibiotics, antihistamines and while some products seem to help initially soothe my skin, it never lasts. I ALWAYS suffer a rebound from cortisone, always worse than the previous one. For many years I’ve known my hormones are related to flare ups, just before “that” time (head of dermatology clinic scoffed at this idea!)
I have sat crying at 2am wanting to scrape my skin with a veggie peeler, been asked if I’d been scalded with boiling water and dropped cups, jars, phone too many times because I couldn’t bend my fingers to grip.
Wearing food gloves over hemp butter to act as a second skin and allow my hands to flex was the norm. It is truly debilitating, everything hurt – using cutlery, hanging washing, getting dressed, tying my hair, even the water in the shower hurt.
12 months ago, after the worst rebound flare I’ve experienced I decided to stop cortisone. (I had been researching Topical Steroid Addiction/Withdraw and how it can take a couple of years to clear your body)
A few months back I wasn’t coping and made an appointment with a new dermatologist. The week before I was due to see him a friend told me about some products her friend was using. I did some investigating and after seeing so many amazing before/after stories threw caution to the wind and cancelled my $180 appointment to give them a go.
BEST DECISION EVER! I felt improvement after just one night using the roll on barrier and have continued healing since. I had forgotten what it’s like to have hands that don’t hurt! Combining the skin products with an amazing wellness drink with antioxidants and nutrients has absolutely changed my life, balancing not only my skin but hormonal issues too.
If you’re suffering from an inflammatory skin condition like eczema/ psoriasis or know someone who does, you need to try this! I’m forever grateful to my friend for letting me know about it and by sharing my story I can help others. Please share if you know someone this could help!

- Improved skin hydration
- Balanced mood
- Reduced sugar cravings
- No joint aches
