Ever since I tested positive for COVID-19 in Omicron in December 2021, my skin has taken on a delicate twist. It turns out that the eczema and dermatitis caused by COVID-19 is thought to be a possible side effect and in the last six months, I have been experiencing occasional red patches and itching in abundance.
Some beauty products have helped. A dermatologist recommended that I change all my scented body lotions with a simple fragrance-free Cerave moisturizer ($ 17), which even my driest, most flaky patches just fade. But the real game that changed the game was Naturium’s “The Soother” Sensitive Skin Body Wash ($ 14), which is the softest and most gentle body wash I’ve ever done. always used, even when my skin is more irritated.

Those who struggle with redness, dryness and general irritation know that finding a body scrub for sensitive skin that is * actually * friendly to sensitive skin may seem like a quest. Some may continue to hydrate and fade, only to dry you out even more. Others may hide in odors and very strong surfactants (those that foam to give you a supposedly “deep cleansing”) that just break out later.
Naturium Sensitive Skin Cleanser wraps your skin as gently as a newborn baby, nourishing fires and blemishes for softer, happier skin as you walk out of the shower. You can almost see it as soon as you take it out of the bottle – its washing serum formula is silky soft and foams into a fine foam that makes the shower luxurious. In addition to luxury, the brand is dedicated to developing products that are “biocompatible”, also known as, will not disturb or disrupt the natural flora of your body. This applies to the entire Naturium suite of products, from skin care to body care. But the list of ingredients of “The Soother” is very impressive.
The first is its pH, which aligns directly with your body’s natural levels. A refresh from high school chemistry: the pH scale ranges from 0-14, with 7.0 being considered neutral. It can range between 4.0-6.0, but typically, our skin has a natural pH of about 5.5, which is exactly where Naturium’s sensitive body cleansing skin falls. (Each bottle explicitly notes it along with the ingredients. In this case, it is 5.0-6.0.) This helps to rebalance the skin, leveling it when it fluctuates and escapes.
The second is the mixture of washing from skin-loving herbs and clinically tested synthetics. There are the classics, such as colloidal oatmeal (hello, relief from itching) and fermented aloe, which nourishes and restores the skin five times more than normal aloe, according to the website. But there are some beginners, especially cationically charged vitamin B5, which gives the skin a softer, healthier feeling even after rinsing. And while it is gentle, it still cleanses you. Some pumps and your skin feels well-groomed and well-groomed, cooling the red spots and moisturizing the dry patches while removing dirt and grime of the day.
As someone with newly discovered sensitive skin, it has become my favorite in my repertoire. I love its composition with gel-y, a serum that softens my skin — even my scaly, irregular areas. Scroll through the Target and Naturium reviews and you will find many other compliments for its tender touch.
“I have very dry, sensitive skin with a tendency to eczema, so I have to be very careful with the products I use. I really like this body wash, as it does not irritate or dry my skin, but it also feels like it does “Excellent cleansing job,” wrote one reviewer. “Great for sensitive skin! I use it on my face and body with zero problems, like my daughters. “I have very sensitive facial skin with a tendency for redness and it does not aggravate these problems at all,” said another buyer.
Eczema and irritated skin needs a little more TLC and Naturium body cleanser for sensitive skin definitely has it. Give your body and your shower routine a little routine with your own bottle.
