E45 has got to be one of the most recognised brands in the UK. I don’t think I’ve ever met a parent that doesn’t use a pot of E45 to help nappy rash and to soften babies’ dry skin. The E45 baby range includes various creams, lotions, and oils that are dermatologically tested and suitable for sensitive skin. These products are formulated with gentle and nourishing ingredients to provide hydration and protection for delicate baby skin. Parents often rely on the E45 baby range to maintain their little one’s skin health and prevent common issues such as dryness or irritation.
I’ve heard of women who have this as a staple in their skincare routine, too, mainly in the form of that big pot that’s there to rescue any dry patches.
I was sent two products from the E45 range to try out.
E45 Moisturising Lotion
This moisturising lotion is perfume free and will reduce roughness and flaking. It’s suitable for sensitive skin too, so perfect for someone like me who can get a reaction to anything slightly harsh. I’ve been using this on my dry elbows and feet.
I love how easily this soaks into my skin. It has a very mild, clean scent.

E45 Overnight Repair and Protect Hand Cream
I’ve never been a fan of using hand cream, because I hate how it feels, especially when you wash your hands afterwards. I’ve been suffering from dry, chapped hands the past few months though. I have to wash my hands a lot at work and I had red, cracked skin on my thumbs and hands a week or so again. It was so sore, itchy and starting to bleed. Not a nice look.
Because of this, I’ve been looking for the best hand cream I can find. I’ve been using a few I’ve had in subscription boxes but found that they are irritating because of the scents and fancy shit they stick in ’em. I even tried one by Dove, but though it smelled delicious, it stung straight away.
To combat my poor dry hands, I’ve been keeping a hand cream in my car, it’s dead easy then for me to remember to put it on to and from work when I’m stuck at a red light. I now keep this on my bedside table and use it at night before I go to sleep.
This product helps repair the skin overnight by boosting skin cell regeneration. The best thing about it for me is that it doesn’t sting!
