Winter sucked us DRY but Spectro Skin Care rescued us! #GSKskin

Disclosure:  I received the product listed below free of charge in order to test it out, and if I liked it, I was free to share it with my readers on my Shasher’s Life blog. All opinions and experiences are my own and 100% real. 


Liam had baby soft skin up until he right before his 3rd birthday.

What I thought was an initial reaction to dried strawberries from a boxed cereal, stuck around and morphed into the driest, scaliest skin I’ve ever felt on a child. The skin in the crooks of his arms would be so inflamed and itchy, he’d scratch until it bled. For a full year I had to keep his arms bandaged to prevent him from clawing at his skin.

The doctor offered a steroid cream or one which could cause liver damage…

Last month an old business acquaintance suggested I try Spectro skin care on all of our “winter sucked us dry” skin. I’d heard of and frequently used Spectro Jel in the past, in fact, it was the first face wash cleanser I purchased for my teenagers. I jumped at the chance to try the moisturizer on Liam!






I was sent the following #GSKskin products to test and review:

when I switched my blog from Blogger to WordPress in 2015, half my old posts disappeared. Sorry about that, I am hoping to reconstruct this post if I can find the before and after photos of my son’s arms. It really was an amazing difference.
