I'd like to buy a gift for someone who suffers from eczema and is also in need of some serious pampering. I'm thinking some of the products from Kiehls - specifically the Ultimate Strength Hand Salve
, the Ultimate Men's After Shave Balm
, and the Non-detergent cleanser
They all seem, at first glance, to be nice, soothing products -- to me, that is, someone who's never had eczema. But a little bit of web research tells me that everyone's triggers are different, and that even vitamins in a skin product can sometimes cause the condition to get worse. Vitamins and natural oils are the special ingredients in these Kiehls products - well, in any luxury product, really. Causing a flare-up is obviously *not* what I'm trying to accomplish by this gift!
So, is this a gift that's nice in theory, but not possible to execute properly without knowing the specifics of his eczema(which, for the record, I don't think he even knows)? Is there anything else that I could give him along these lines?
Thanks in advance, hive mind.
