Rosie Reviews: Mama Nature Natural Skin Care


I was born with eczema. I've literally had it since birth. Covering my body from head to toe, it is a curse that I have had to deal with throughout my life. When under control, I moisturize regularly, avoid heavily scented products and eating dairy (which is a personal trigger for a flare up but not a universal trigger for eczema.) At worst, I have weeping open sores, cry at the thought of standing in the shower because of the stinging, can barely open my swollen eyes and I'm embarrassed to go out the house not wearing makeup on my itchy, red face and have people ask me what happened to my hands, and how did I burn them.

People CONSTANTLY come up to me and give me 'advice' which annoys the flaming HECK out of me as I have done all the research I could possibly do. I've seen specialists, countless doctors, taken steroids in pill form, tried light therapies, stopped eating certain food groups and tried every single product which should supposedly help from Boots. 

But when Mama Nature, a natural, vegan, organic skin care company asked me if they could send me some samples, I said yes. Using natural products over my side-effect inducing steroids are always a blessing. I'm still willing to explore new things, especially when they have good reviews and I loved the company's website. All packaging was 100% recyclable and everyone knows I'm advocate for being kind to the world, against animal testing and all for using natural ingredients.

After doing some research I discovered that Mama Nature Pro Skin Eczema, the product I was being sent, is recommended by Dermatologists (excellent) and is sold every 72 seconds. Prepared by hand, the product is 100% vegan and Eco friendly and was runner up in the prestigious Green Parent Natural Beauty Awards 2012.

When it arrived I instantly opened up the packaging and put some on my hands - my biggest problem area for eczema. I was immediately hit by the smell of the product - it smells AMAZING! I knew what the smell was - essential oils. My mother was a beauty therapist and used to massage essential oils into my skin when I was younger. They smell so relaxing and each oil has a different healing advantage. For example, lavender oil is extremely useful with the treatment of burns. Rubbing this product onto my skin was like having a massage - the cream is rich and thick, heavily moisturizing my skin with the calming smells of massage oils and oil burning candles.

 What I was pleased with is that this product is obviously slightly oily but it doesn't leave an awful residue over my skin after use - my skin just feels seriously hydrated and so, so soft after I put this on. When using my creams prescribed by my doctor, they do the job of moisturizing but I have to repeatedly put the creams on whereas I feel only one application of Mama Nature Pro Skin will leave my hands sufficiently hydrated for probably a half a day. It's definitely something I love to cover myself in before bed, so I snuggle down feeling moisturized and relaxed from the smell.

Overall I am more than happy with this product and will DEFINITELY be continuing the use of it. Finally someone has recommended me a natural alternative that WORKS. My only upset would be that the tub is fairly small so I may need to order more for my whole body. However, I do LIKE that it is small as it is handbag sized, and I can carry it with me and smear it over my hands on the go. Perfect. I will be taking this cream with me to New York to help see me through the early days, late nights and travelling without my skin drying up.  
The fact that this product smells great, does the job of healing sore eczema, moisturizing seriously dry skin, is Eco friendly, non animal tested, natural ingredients and bio degradable makes me thing that this is a No 1 product people should be using. I will be raving about this and would love to try out some more of Mama Nature's products - they have different products for many other skin complaints other than eczema - including acne and stretch marks to name a few. I give this product 5 stars out of 5! Keep up the great work Mama Nature!


  1. Just be careful with bad dreams (or Rose's hugs) or you will be sliding out of bed if you use too much cream hahaha... Just kidding, I just wanted to know if they ship the product outside the UK and what components do they use in the product they sent you.

  2. I have had bad eczema and still have a dairy allergy (although I only get a rash if I come in contact with dairy, if I eat it my throat swells) and I know exactly how you feel Rosie. Whilst growing up people recommended my parents loads of treatments and told them how it worked on their child but they never helped. Although trying loads of treatments from Chinese oils/medicines to shea butter to steroids, I think my eczema cleared up with age but I still have problems with my ankles and my face mildly. I'm really keen to use this on these areas... i do love organic products ����

  3. check, because my bosom buddy suffers from eczema. Thanks for the tip :)

  4. This was such an interesting post Rosie. I wanted to give it a good read because I have psoriasis and it's not exactly the same but sort of is with dry skin, flare ups and can burn when in the shower/bath so I can relate in some way with it. I wanted to ask if anyone would recommend this to me? Just as a try to see if it will at least maybe cool it down or stop me itching with the help of moisturising it..I am starting to cut down on my diet as well but I don't really know the whole dairy/gluten info but everyone always tells me to get to my doctor and ask because I should really be on a specific diet. I have done various posts on my psoriasis on my blog and you check it out here: http://letfashionbeyourpassion.blogspot.co.uk/ but like you I just want to branch out and try lots of things just to see which product actually benefits the very most.

    Love your blog Rosie :) xo

  5. Hey I just ready this todat and thought it might help: "If you have eczema or simply have dry, irritated skin, try soaking in an oatmeal bath. Add two to three cups of colloidal, or finely ground, oatmeal to warm water and soak in it for 15 minutes. The oatmeal reduces inflammation and is thought to have an antihistamine effect." I hope it works for you!

  6. Hi Rosie, I just read your post and it was really interesting, as you, all my life I have had eczema but it's atopic, not so much different. I was in Spain for a month and I found a cream called "Clovate" it works really good on skins with pH basic like us. I would love to try Mama Nature Pro Skin Eczema, but unfortunately I live far away, thanks for taking time and write interesting things, Love from Colombia and enjoy NY.

  7. Is Mama nature pro skin Eczema work on blackheads? I am having problem with huge blackheads on nose. Could you please tell me how to get rid of blackheads on nose ? I will visit this again to know about it. Thanks for this great article.

Parents are happy to pay handsome salary and you can also earn a lot without putting too much of an effort.

    For those who have a garden or an open space at your disposal and are also interested in gardening can go for this method of earning money.

  9. Everyone needs to seem sensible and contemporary particularly for females therefore your article is incredibly emotive concerning skin care.

  10. Just like over-scrubbing, over-using your cleanser or retinol products also compromises your skin’s natural protective oil. Sarah

  11. Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. I’ll give you a link on your web blog. I recently came to know about www.avanaaustralia.com, their Natural Skin Care products are very effective.
    Natural Skin Care Thanks for sharing.

  12. You've been spending some time on the net looking at skin care reviews and different skin care products and programs trying to find the best skin care line. Good. You're interested in your skin health and want to improve your skin. skin care treatments

  13. The cosmetic industry has infused the market with products full of petroleum and chemical based compounds. Not only do they inhibit oxygen to your skin, they offer no nutrients, providing only immediate results while causing further damage later on. http://www.thedermreport.com/isosensuals-tight/

  14. This article gives the light in which we can watch the truth. This is exceptionally decent one and gives indepth data. A debt of gratitude is in order for this decent article.  rejuvenation skin treatment
