This cream has been reformulated, it's now called Exomega Control. They removed the mineral oil, added caprylic triglyceride, and reordered ingredients. The formula in the DEFI tube has no preservatives, whereas the larger bottle does.The new consistency is thinner, lighter, and easier to spread. However, it's not as moisturizing or well absorbed as the old formula. It also leaves a very shiny/oily finish on the skin. I use it on my face. It causes no breakouts and does a decent job moisturizing my dry, sensitive skin. The 200ml tube lasts me a whole year, so it's a good value.

*update, not bad at all if used consistently but I had to apply thick layers and leave on until absorbed, like cold cream. Also used with a custom oil blend and the dermalibour helped retain moisture from that. it was good on my hands when applied very often, but then i found a 2 euro handcreme with the same effect.I read countless online reviews about this product working extremely well on people with all sorts of skin difficulties, eczema and psoriasis included. Every single review was extremely positive. The pharmacist told me it was suitable as daily skin care for dry and sensitive skin on face, hands and body. As not even buckets of coconut oil suffice to relieve my skin of severe dryness and irritation, I decided to try it. It is a thick zinc and copper sulfates plus oat extract cream. It doesn't leave a white residue on skin. It feels very greasy, which I appreciate, especially that the skin stays greasy after application. Applying foundation over it though completely undoes the soothing, nourishing effect and I'm back to severe dryness and irritation. It feels soothing on the skin, definitely helps with itching and burning for a while, at least if I don't put makeup over it. But that was all for me. Moisturizing, but not much lasting relief from dryness, nothing repairing about it, no action on my patches of scaly dry skin, no action on small scrapes and scabs, nothing. Short lived relief (very short lived) from stinging on my cleaner/disinfectant/weather ruined hands, but otherwise no improvement. At least it doesn't burn or irritate my skin, so for lack of current better options (and because I paid for another damn product that'll sit in the fridge if I don't find some semi decent use for it) I will probably use it as undereye cream. No breakouts from this for me. It was about 9 euro, which isn't terrible for a product that would do something, but since it doesn't actually do much other than it is tolerated well, I will not repurchase or recommend, unless you are willing to try it for psoriasis or similar as many users with the condition seem to love it. it could safely be used on babies and elderly family members if it doesn't work for you.I haven't yet figured out how to include a photo but it's in a white tube with green font, not the white and blue tube of the regular dermalibour cream. p.s. the packaging is an aluminum tube, the cap *seems* secure. but be careful to not wear this in your pocket or work robe. it opened and spilled all over mine. if you're in a profession that's hard on hands and want to try this and keep it handy at work (as you will have to reapply often), consider decanting some of it into those empty lip balm tubes DYIers use. I don't suggest handling paperwork immediately after application as it is quite greasy. Really keep this one away from curious pets as the zink is problematic if swallowed. We were lucky as our dog got into a small amount of it and only vomited, but it still took a vet visit to be sure we're on the safe side.

Like reviewers below, this is an effective barrier cream to help sore and irritated skin to heal - the ingredients reveal a good mix of humectant and moisturising substances, as well as oat-derived soothing ones too. Wounds heal faster in clean, moist conditions, and this cream reflects that. It uses shea butter as the base, which is an effective occlusive moisturiser to "trap" hydration beneath it - but sadly, behaves like it's highly comedogenic on me despite officially being classed as a non-comedogenic substance. When used on my t-zone it invariably causes clogged pores over time, which diminish when not used. For this reason, it's not ideal as an all-over healing cream, at least for me, but when applied only to problem areas this unwanted side effect is greatly reduced. So, things like scratches, pimples I've attacked, minor sunburn around the eyes - I'll apply a small amount with a cotton bud and I do find it helps stuff heal faster, at least to get to a point where it's possible to cover it with make-up a little better as it's very moisturising.I also like the packaging, a squeezy tube with a narrow tip - helps protect the product inside from excessive contamination or breakdown of substances sensitive to light. Simple and effective.This isn't my go-to healing barrier cream because of its tendency to break me out, but that doesn't mean it's a bad product - for very dry skin, or more mature skin, this stuff is great. My aunt absolutely loves it and always has a tube of it stashed somewhere, and will use it after chemical peels or laser facial treatments while her skin heals. It also has no mineral oil in it - so for the minority of people intolerant to it, this is a good alternative provided shea butter doesn't break you out. As for myself, I prefer Cicalfate from Avene for my facial skin but for small injuries on my body, I like this one better. Like sore ingrown hairs I removed with pointy tweezers on my inner thigh or scratched insect bites. It isn't the cheapest product out there, but does do what it claims to do for the most part so I'm not too bitter about its price as I do see definite positive effects on damaged skin.

I bought this in Winter time but I put it aside til summer since it was not moisturizing enough for my sensitive, dry rosacea skin.Wont repurchase, it has a strange Chemical smell like wall painting and it is somewhat drying even now in summer time. And they dont sell it here in Norway so I would have had to order it from abroad like I did With this one….

My oily skin with rosacea loves this cleanser. Gentle and leaves skin clean, but not stripped. Even removes mascara. I previously used Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser, Clinique take the day off balm, Clinique Redness Solutions Soothing Cleanser, The Body Shop camomile cleansing oil and the balm version. None of them can compare to this. Also very travel friendly.
