I previously wrote about my experience with Vitamin E oil. It works a treat for me but I cannot use it very often because its so thick, I’m afraid of clogging my pores. My sister was given some Emu Oil from Dremu Skin Care Products and asked if I’d like to try it. Of course I said yes!
I got a sample of Dremu oil, which is their most popular product. At first, I was calling it “Dre-mu” until I realised it was Dr. Emu because its actually made from Emu oil! Yes, the large flightless bird of Australia yields an oil that is supposed to be pretty miraculous in erasing wrinkles. The thing is, I don’t have wrinkles, just some fine lines that are barely noticable.
So, I read the Dremu website, and saw that the emu oil could also be used as a moisturiser, and it seems to work miracles for dry skin. The oil is rather thick so I did not want to risk putting it on my face. I’m just recovering from a bout of clogged pores. So, I tried it on my dry elbows and lips. Amazing! I put it on at night and the next morning, I woke up to glossy plump lips and smooth elbows! I’m tempted to try it on my face so we’ll see.
If you have dry skin, or live in a cold country, then the Dremu oil might work for you as a facial moisturiser as it seems to work well for those with dry skin or chaffing problems. I’m just not sure if the hot humid weather here will cause my skin to react differently. Oprah endorses this product, apparently, as do a host of other A-list celebs. It is supposed to work wonders also on skin problems like eczema, rosacea, psoriasis and has a host of other uses. A 0.5 fluid oz bottle costs $35 and the website ships internationally. Dremu comes from the USA, despite the fact the bird is from Australia. Rather odd isn’t it?
