Lotil - The Ultimate Cream for Everyone

Last August, I managed to trip over the tiniest step, land fully on my ankle and not only overstretch a tendon but also tear every ligament too, apparently I was very unlucky because a break would have been easier to fix!  That said, I spent weeks on crutches, the only way I could get too and from work and very few Blog events, as well as having an ankle support bandage to ensure that whilst I moved around, my ankle did not.  Throughout that time, if you follow me on Instagram, I did share some of the horrors of my ankle and lower leg turning all different shades of black, purple, green and the most amazing shade of yellow - something I will spare you from right now.
Lotil - The Ultimate Cream for Everyone
Fast forward to May and I still have a swollen ankle. If I walk too much it swells up and if I don't rest it, it aches and we go round and round and in circles waiting for it to heal properly.  Wearing an ankle support and bandage constantly means I can only wear trainers because bending my foot to wear any other form of shoe is agony after a few minutes and trainers allow my support bandage to do its job, but this has lead to very very dry skin around the top of my foot, just above and around my ankle.  So having tried a few different creams, I was sent a pot of Lotil Original Cream to try., a cream I had seen on my social media feed but hadn't really tried before.
Tried and tested for over 100 years, Lotil cream is a skincare hero. It can benefit everyone by gently rehydrating dry skin, adding moisture retention and providing the maximum protection against both environmental and climatic conditions.
That is as good enough a description as I needed to give the cream a try. I like that it comes packaged inside a hefty tub, it isn't too OTT with the packaging and what you see if definitely what you get.

The cream is a similar texture to Sudocrem for me, quite thick but that is where the similarities end because with Lotil, you have a cream that is non-greasy, it doesn't feel tacky on the skin when applied and nor do you have to sit and massage it into the skin for what feels like a week to ensure it has all been absorbed.  With Lotil, you only need a small amount because it is very much the case of less is more and what I do like is how my skin feels after using it.
Lotil - The Ultimate Cream
As I said, the skin around my ankle injury was really dry and just felt horrendous to the touch, so I applied a fairly thick layer of cream before bed and let it works its magic. I am now a good few weeks into using it every single day, just around my ankle and the difference is quite something, I am not quite back to how my skin was, slowly but surely there have been improvements and I am less of a snake shedding its skin feeling to having dry skin on one part of my ankle.  Lotil prides itself in being packed full of emollients, which rapidly rehydrate the skin and where needed, softens chapped, dry and cracked skin.

Lotil is perfect for use on hands, elbows, knees, body and face and it is available online and instore from places such as Boots for £6.29.
