Lipikar Baume AP + from La Roche Posay
I have dry skin on my arms, near my elbows and very often around my knees as well – and no amount of cream has been able to soothe it. Enter Lipikar Baume AP +, a new cream from La Roche Posay that promises to protect your skin from allergies and replenish lipids. I approached it with caution and scepticism – how good could it really be, right? Made with thermal spa water, it does soothe almost instantly, which is reason enough for me to buy it. It’s non-sticky and hydrating, all points in its favour. However, did it help the dryness disappear? Not so far, and it’s been around a month. However, I’ll give it a little more time, because it does soothe flare ups for a short while!

Aroma Magic Nourishing Hand Cream
I have never experienced dry skin on my hands (of course, the weather in Mumbai doesn’t validate dry hands at all) and so, I was skeptical of how I would judge Blossom Kochhar’s Aroma Magic Nourishing Hand Cream. The cream is extremely soft and light on the skin — it isn’t as heavy as conventional moisturisers are, which makes it a pleasure to apply it on. The cream has a citrus fragrance and is very refreshing. The thing is, my hands were never critically dry and so, I hadn’t noticed how much they were in need of a dedicated hand cream. Aroma Magic’s Nourishing Hand Cream is a great pick and will work great not only for the winter but summer season too!
