I can’t believe I haven’t mentioned this awesome product before… but better late than never, right?
Helosan Original is an all-round skin cream for daily use with antiseptic and moisturizing qualities and can be used for softening and re-fattening of dry skin due to extreme weather conditions (eq. sun or frost) and general skin care after eczema and other skin disease, treatment for diaper rash in babies and care of aging skin.
I was first introduced to this product after my mom told me she applied it on her growing stomach while pregnant with me. She got it from Denmark one summer when they were there (you may know that I am half Danish); and get this – she has no stretch marks, and she put on 21kgs during her pregnancy. (So pregnant ladies, this post might be of special interest!)
Helosan is a Swedish product that is all over Scadinavian drugstores – I can always spot this big blue tub everywhere – so whenever I’m in Denmark I stock up, but I have heard that it is slowly branching out to the US and Europe, so keep a look out for it.
And since it’s used in one of the coldest regions in the world, you can be sure their moisturizing properties are excellent. (Think Nivea Creme; but thicker, creamier, and more moisturizing.) It just works, and that’s why I like it. Another plus for me is that it reminds me of Denmark, my other half.
