conquering dry skin with neosporin : a giveaway

**Update, Social Spark has picked a winner for this giveaway. Thank you for participating!**image

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of NEOSPORIN® ESSENTIALS™ for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. Read our full disclosure here.

Hey awesome people! Jamin here again today.

A few weeks ago Neosporin sent me information about a new product called Neosporin Essentials. Since I love all things Neosporin (I mean, who doesn’t?) I thought it was worth checking out. After all, my motto is “If you don’t get a cut or scrape, you’re not working hard enough”, which usually leads to weird injuries, the wife a not-so-happy camper with my posted Facebook injuries, and me needing to buy Neosporin by the bulk.


Anyway, this new product, NEOSPORIN® ESSENTIALS™, is a great winter time product. It was originally designed for people with Eczema, which is estimated to affect around 35 million adults. (Eczema is a chronic inflammatory skin condition characterized by dry, itchy skin and visible skin rash.)

I have never had Eczema, but I do have some awful dry skin in the winter from working outside and simply using my hands a lot. Our entire family is constantly washing our hands in the winter, and I am probably twice as bad. So we’re always those people with super dry hands. We’re all about skipping the latest nasty virus floating around. But I digress.


Anyway, I wondered if Neosporin is good for a real live medical condition, would it also help with just seasonal dry skin? I decided to test it out. This new kit is pretty cool. It comes with a body wash, a moisturizing cream and an anti-itch cream.


This is what Neosporin says about each product:

• Daily body wash gently cleanses even the most dry, sensitive skin

• Daily moisturizing cream clinically shown to: restore visibly healthier skin in 3 days; relieve dry, itchy skin due to eczema on contact.

• Anti-itch cream for fast relief of itch flare-ups due to eczema. For occasional use.

Like everything else Neosporin, this product is living up to its name brand and I look forward to continuing to test it out through the winter. We’re officially fans.

The bonus today is that Neosporin wants to invite you to try their product as well and is giving away a kit to one of our lucky readers. To enter, do one of the following:(before entering please read our full disclosure here.)

Giveaway ends Wednesday, 12.19.12. Sorry, giveaway open to US participants only. Good luck, and have an inspired day!

  3. Julie says:

    Because my son has eczema due to lactose intolerance.

  4. Leana says:

    My whole family deals with painfully dry hands in winter, included split and cracked fingertips. Ouch! We need a great solution like this, especially since winter’s really just beginning here in Mont.

  5. Diana Allen says:

    I, too, battle with dry skin in the winter, especially my hands and would love to win this product give-a-way

    I would LOVE to try this product! I have been thinking of getting some since seeing it advertised and this would be the perfect opportunity! I have terribly dry skin in the winter, but have noticed a patch of eczema appearing on my knee that is driving me crazy! I will be more than happy to share this on my wall! Thank you!

  11. April was in CT now CA says:

    My husband is having a really tough time with dry hands this winter and he’s been trying all sorts of things with nothing working. I’d love to win this for him!

  12. Jessica says:

    I would love to win this giveaway for my five-year-old son. Unfortunately, he suffers from terribly dry skin just like his father. My husband’s hands and feet start cracking when the temperature turns colder and severe dry skin is something the deals with all winter. My poor child is dealing with the same. His skin is so dry and itchy that he itches until his skin breaks. Cocoa Butter lotion seems to be the only kind of lotion that gives him any kind of relief. I purchased more cocoa butter, a different brand than I normally do, and within minutes of lathering it on my child, he was screaming because it burned so badly. I felt terrible. As a mother, you try so hard to provide your children relief and when your efforts make the condition even worse, it’s very sad and makes me feel awful. I’d love to find a product that provides dry skin and itching relief. His little body is covered with skin that feels like sandpaper during the colder months. I’d love to find him products that provide relief and healing!

  13. Denise T says:

    Dry skin has always been an issue during winter. I work with my hands a lot , my hands are dry . I would like to try and see the results.

  14. Sandy says:

    We have a small concrete finishing business and my husband’s hands get really dry in the winter. Maybe this would help him.

  15. Sandy says:

    I tweeted! Thanks for the giveaway.

  16. I live in Northern Idaho, where it can get rather cold and dry and I have sensitive skin, so it would be fun to see if this can help.

  17. I shared on twitter.

  18. Janna says:

    I’d like to try this out–my kids seem to get a touch of eczema in the winter, and I’m always battling dry skin.

  19. Lin says:

    We both have dry winter skin and this would help. Ty for the kit, Happy Holidays!

  20. Well, I’m looking at my ashy hands as I type and I could probably use a little sumpin’-sumpin’. On my way to share on my page now!

  21. Ashley says:

    We’ve got dry skin a plenty over here!

  22. Shannon says:

    My husband has eczema and I’d love to see what Neosporin can do for him, since it’s such a reliable brand.

  23. erica says:

    I need to try that on my soon who has major eczema!

  24. I wonder how good it is for kids – I just started to notice several dry patches on my 3 year old that seem to be bugging her. I’d love to see if it would help!

  25. Debby C says:

    This stuff looks like a Mom’s best friend. I’m definitely going to look for it! Why do I want to win it. First of all to look forward to a box with my name on it arriving in the mail, but seriously, “go get the neosporin and a bandaid” can pretty much be woven into any family’s crest!!

  26. Jen M says:

    Would like to try this product for my family’s dry skin flare-ups! Thanks so much!!

  27. Lynn says:

    Chemo skin here! Would like to try it.

  28. Shirley says:

    I can put cream on my feet, arms and legs and in 10 min. it is like I never put any on at all. I would really like to try this if it will help.

  29. Connie says:

    I have the WORST dry skin. I can scratch my arms and legs and it looks like it’s snowing. Worst on my lower legs and ankles (why do you suppose that is?). I have tried Vaseline lotion, Eucerin Calming Cream and even baby oil, but nothing relieves the itching for more than just a very few minutes. I haven’t heard of the Neosporin skin creams (been using their antibiotic creams for decades!). Would love to try it – particularly with winter coming on and the even drier skin that I can expect.

  30. Connie says:

    I shared this on Facebook…

  31. Lena says:

    My oldest son has eczema and it is horrible in the winter! I would love to try this forhim to give him some relief!!

  32. Chris Jackson says:

    When my hands got so bad from all the times during the day that I wash them, I had the brilliant idea to try my Neosporin antibiotic cream on them. I did so at night and felt like it made a difference. They weren’t so red, cracked and burning. I must keep it up, of course, but I like Neosporin also, and would love to get ahold of the ecxema cream for my husband.

  33. Charlotte Rhubottom says:

    I would love to win this product. I have suffered with eczema my entire life and have passed it on to my kids and grandkids. The winter is the worst, drier air leaves my skin parched. I havent found anything that really helps, as most lotions and creams seem to sit on top of the skin and not soak in to where its needed. Add to that sensitivity to most skins products and that leaves not much available other than prescription type steroids which are not good to use long term.

  34. My 4 year old granddaughter Olivia has eczema and would love to try these products on her. Thanks for opportunity!

  35. Jessie C. says:

    DDs and me all have very dry skin, these would be great products to help us.

  36. Erin Buchanan says:

    I’m willing to give anything a try that will potentially help my dry skin!

  37. Ilona t says:

    Would love to try these products!!

  38. Ilona t says:

    I tweeted!

  39. Denise Kelly says:

    Because I have tried everything else for the dry, itchy patches I get on my hands and would love to find something that works and wasn’t a prescription. thanks!

  40. Katherine says:

    I’d love to try this kit to help with my son’s eczema. He’s two and he’s had it since he was a newborn. It’s really flaring up already this winter and I hope that these products might help soothe his skin.

  41. Karen Meehan says:

    I have eczema, I’d love to try this!

  42. Charla says:

    I think this might be a real solution for my oldest granddaughter. She is 10 and has such sensitive skin. Her eczema is especially pronounced on her legs during this dry and cold weather.

  43. michele says:

    I LOVE these products well at least the lotion for ecezma. My son suffers on his face and every time it starts to flare I use it AM/PM and within 1-2 days MAX. It is cleared! Nothing else on the market even Rxs didn’t work to help him!! I love love love this stuff and would love to win some more!

  44. Paula Robertson says:

    Have had eczema since a small child-severe when younger. Always looking for a product for dry skin and purchase many. Use a lot of Eucerin at this time. Will be trying this.
