Aqueous Cream is a soap-free skin cleanser and moisturizer suitable for use on all skin types and areas of the body. It is non-greasy and free of perfume, color and lanolin. It is especially effective for very dry and eczema-prone skin because it covers the skin with a protective layer of oil that is designed to hold moisture in. Aqueous Cream is available over the counter in the U.K., Australia and in some other countries. In the U.S., the cream is obtainable by mail order.

Step 1

Remove waterproof cosmetics and skin care products using your regular oil-based makeup removal product. Rinse your face with warm water and pat your skin dry with a soft towel.

Step 2

Apply a dime-sized amount of Aqueous Cream to your fingertips and massage the cream into your skin using gentle, circular motions. Wash the cream from your skin using warm water if you are using Aqueous Cream to cleanse.

Step 3

Spread a liberal amount of Aqueous Cream onto dry areas when using it as a moisturizing lotion. Massage gently, being careful not to irritate sensitive or irritated skin. Do not wash off. Reapply the cream three to four times each day, or as needed to keep your skin moist.

Step 4

Use the cream in place of your usual shaving gel to protect your skin from shaving cuts and reduce the risk of razor rash. Rinse your skin with cool water after shaving to help prevent ingrown hairs.
