Pros: safe for use by Diabetics, contains dead sea salts
Cons: no miracle yet, hard to get out of tube when half way through
The Bottom Line: A good cream that works on the itches associated with skin conditions, but not exactly a miracle. The next step would be to request the money back from the guarantee.
While walking around the Rite Aid I found the shelf with all the items touted with the label "As Seen on TV" and stumbled on the Miracle of Aloe Miracle Rash Repair Cream. I was not familiar with the Miracle of Aloe brand before and honestly never saw this advertised on television.
The last item I purchased that claimed to be a miracle cream really did perform as such. This was through a seller on ebay who failed to mention she was closing her business for the summer due to maternity leave and not selling again on her website or ebay until September. The company is Natural Concepts with the name of the product called Miracle Cream.
Thinking I had nothing to lose since I go through creams on a daily basis with my eczema on my legs, back, arms and feet, I paid the $9.99 for the Miracle of Aloe Miracle Rash Repair Cream.
This is 36% aloe which is to promote healing of skin damaged by psoriasis, dermatitis and itchy, red, scaly, dry skin. I think since it did not specifically mention eczema I should have been forewarned, but dermatitis is in the same family of skin conditions.
I like that it is a large thick tube with a flip-top lid that can be applied to areas 3-4 times daily. The box mentioned dead sea salts, but not being familiar with this it made no difference in my purchasing decision. The fact that it contains no lanolin was to my benefit.
Miracle of Aloe Miracle Rash Repair Cream is guaranteed to work or you get your money back. There is no address or phone number listed for getting a refund, but they are located at www.ontelproducts.com, which is based in New Jersey. There is also the www.miracleofaloe.com website. I did not find this particular Miracle cream listed at either site, but all the other Miracle repair creams seem to be there.
I was surprised to see an expiration date on the bottom of the box, which is September, 2006 and not noticeable on the actual tube. The active ingredient is 1.8% salicylic acid, which is the anti-itch component. The secret that makes this is a miracle product is the dead sea salt and pure aloe vera gel.
You are advised to ask a Doctor before applying to a larger area covered with dermatitis or psoriasis, although not mentioned why this is cause for concern. I do wonder what constitutes a large area.
The photos on the box show before an after with red marks on a leg and then it is clear. Since I have several products I use concurrently on my eczema I chose to focus on my legs and feet with the Miracle of Aloe Miracle Rash Repair Cream.
Since I am sticking to wearing socks and sneakers this summer season I opted for applying the cream on my feet before putting on socks. This did help a great deal with no itching throughout the days I was out and about in my sneakers and also while working out at 24 Hour Fitness.
This is another one of those products that I must avoid from placing into the palm of my hand. This stung my open sores where skin is resurfacing so bad that I had to quickly get it off the area. I try to remember to always place the cream on my feet and legs and use my fingertips to rub into the skin.
The cream is white, smooth but not overly creamy, more oily, but absorbs into the skin very fast. This does not leave a sticky feeling on the skin, nor does it cause me to apply more to scratch off. There is a light scent that is pleasant. Once you get half way through the tube it is hard to grasp and push out the contents without effort. When you have cuts and sores on your hands it is like living with arthritis making opening and squirting impossible.
The Miracle of Aloe Miracle Rash Repair Cream is supposed to repair damaged skin better than any other product available. I am not totally certain of these results and would like a better way to get the contents out to see if this holds up over time. It does relieve itching, but many products do that. My feet do look more attractive, but I am not wearing sandals and not sure this cream could keep up with my feet if that were the case.
The ingredients in Miracle of Aloe Miracle Rash Repair Cream are 36% aloe, water, dead sea salt, stearic acid, mineral oil, glyceryl stearate (and) PEG-100 stearate, cetyl alcohol, propylene glycol, cetearyl alcohol, methylparaben, propylbaraben, polysorbate 60, dimethicone, triethanolamine, disodium edta, carrageenan and fragrance.
I doubt I will pay another $9.99 for this Miracle of Aloe Miracle Rash Repair Cream. Then again a small tube of all the other over the counter products cost about $5-6 and are much smaller in size. I wish these items were available in tall slender tubes with a push down dispenser allowing us to get all the contents out with ease and less irritation.
