Lilliput, you need to check the label for parabans and ph content. Aveeno is given by my hospital for dry skin. Clinique, Bare Minerals and Boots products were in the goody bag given on the Look Good Feel Good session, so they're OK to use. Boots have a cancer skin care specialist in their larger stores who advise on everything. Hope this helps. X
Hello does anyone know if wearing hair mousse might help with the falling of hair? I was thinking as it kind of sticks the hair together it might stop some hair falling with day to day movement?
The only one I have used was the one from fightcancerwithbeauty and while not being the cheapest it was actually very good.
Good Luck 🙂

Hi everyone - I had EC chemo 5 years ago and kept my skin in good condition using my usual Decleore products. My currently having Taxotere (last one next Wednesday) and have found that my usual products have just not been able to deal with the very dry and dehydrated skin it has caused.
Went to a Look Good, Feel Better workshop 2 weeks ago and in my bag of goodies there was Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturiser so have been using that ever since and what a difference it is making. No where near as dehydrated and my skin feels more comfortable. Would really recommend it especially if you can get a sample to try first.
Been using pure Argan oil on my hands and nails since started chemo and although nails are ridged and discoloured they are not flaking and seem fairly strong. Marli xx
Hi - I have cold capped and used the organic Aloe Vera shampoo and conditioner and the Aloe Vera body lotion in the same range which have worked really well for me. I am struggling however to find a suitable face moisturiser as my skin has become very dry and sensitive.
I just use regular body butter moisturiser, currently alternating between a French Connection one, which yesterday had the chemo nurses raving over how nice I smelt! And one from boots Champneys Distant Shores, it's passion fruit and mango and is a bit lighter than the FC one and smells heavenly!
I know a lot of people use bio oil too.
Take care, hope chemo goes well for you.
Im going to start chemotherapy next week and Im looking to get some skin care and hair care products. Any recommendations on products ? Thank you !
