Good evening all, I've been using qv products for my daughter (8.5 months old) she had some eczema on face but it's completely vanished now, I still want to continue using it as she does have dry skin (body) a little bit, my son doesn't have any but I use the products on him as he likes to do what his sister does (his close to 3 yrs old) now my little dilemma is.....
I don't like the scent of the qv and the after smell, is there anything that smells better? What about for the hair? Face? Can you put qv on the face?

I use QV for my son who has bad eczema. I don't particularly like the smell either. I wash his face with the QV wash and I use QV shampoo and conditioner

Moogoo do a range of eczema products. They might be worth a try?

Yep definitely try moo goo, we only used the eczema cream and it was great.
We used alpha Kerri as well rather than qv.

Moo goo I think smells of lavender? Isn't that "perfume"?
Thank you 😃

We use QV for eczema, and every single time we have seen a GP, paediatrician, paediatric allergist, dermatologist, pharmacist, etc - EVERY SINGLE medical professional has told us that QV is the best thing for eczema. It doesn't have a lovely smell, because it isn't scented like many other products are. The scents/ perfumes will only contribute to irritating the eczema, including "natural" scents. I have tried a few other products - like moo goo, gaia, etc, and I think that they are ok for milder eczema, but if it is severe, like my DD's, they only irritate more. I feel like I am a QV salesperson, lol! I won't use anything else, but if your kids only have mild eczema, another product might work OK.
I use QV oil in the bath water, QV wash, and QV cream. I use QV intensive if needed. I also use a 1% steroid cream for bad flare ups. You can put QV on the face, but it can sting their eyes, so I tend to use plain sorbolene cream around the eye area & QV elsewhere on the face.HTH

I would stick with qv.
It's the only the my paed recommends for eczema. Steer clear of anything natural too.
I have never noticed a smell with it. If it's working then I reckon stick with it.

I never had any problems with the other one though. DS hated the feel of most creams so were on to a winner with the moogoo. I ended up cutting dairy out of his diet and have we have not had an eczema flair up since thankfully.
