Truth Review #2 – Aveeno Baby Range

All of my 3 little bears suffer from dry skin and eczema, particularly Gilbert and Delilah.

Winter can be especially cruel as the skin dries out even more due to less exposure to the air and the daily moving in and out of heating.

For the last 8 years I’ve tried many, many products to keep the skin moist in order to try to keep the eczema under control.

I should show you my bathroom cupboard, I’ve got a whole pharmacy of skin care products under there!

I was a little hesitant to try the Aveeno Baby range of moisturizing products just because I have tried so many before and in the past some products supposedly made for sensitive skin have induced adverse reactions in the kids.

I must say I have been really pleasantly surprised by how gentle the Aveeno Baby range has been on my kids’ skin. Using the products have not induced any sort of adverse reaction and has indeed left their skin soft and relatively clear.

The Baby Soothing Relief Moisture Cream is non-greasy and leaves the skin feeling lovely and soft. I’ve been using this on Delilah after baths and I have also been using this on my hands as they tend to dry out too in the cooler weather.

The Baby Soothing Relief Creamy Wash can be used in conjunction with the soothing relief moisture cream to relieve particularly dry and sensitive skin. I used this with Delilah and it didn’t have any adverse effect on her skin at all but I must say I prefer the Baby Wash and Shampoo for bath time.

The Baby Daily Moisturising Lotion is a lighter moisturiser than the soothing relief cream and is great for regular moisturising during the day. I used this on Gilbert and found it did leave his skin feeling softer without any adverse reaction.

The Baby Wash and Shampoo is my favourite. It lathers up beautifully and has a fresh, clean scent that I could breathe in all day.

We have been using this in the bath most nights and apart from producing a champion bubble bath, the kids’ skins are all soft and smooth afterwards.

I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the Aveeno Baby range so I’ll definitely be continuing with these products through winter to try to keep the dry skin and redness at bay.

But don’t just take my word for it – thanks to the good people at Aveeno I have a pack of all 4 products to give away. With each product retailing for $10.99 each that’s a prize worth over $40.

To win, all you need to do is tell me whether you are a shower or a bath person and why and I’ll select the most original answer as the winner.

Please note the competition is open to Australian residents only and closes 6pm AEST Sunday May 20.

For the record, I am a shower person. As much as the thought of a bath entices me, the reality is I can’t live without a hot shower every morning. Besides, I hate getting all wrinkly and cold and bored in the bath!

So now it’s over to you. Good luck!

    I’m a shower person too 🙂 Don’t like getting cold in a bath and don’t get much time to relax and enjoy it with the kiddies coming in.

    • Kirsty says:

      Amen – my thoughts exactly, Karen! I like the idea of a bath but the reality isn’t nearly as fun or comfortable or fulfilling for me. Thanks for taking the time to enter – good luck!

  2. tamra childers says:

    i’m a bath person now, so that I can hear what my son is up to while I’m in the tub, the shower is too loud to hear over.

    • Kirsty says:

      That’s a good point Tamra. I never know what my 3 terrors are up to when I’m in the shower – I have a feeling I may not want to know either! Thanks for taking the time to enter – good luck!

  3. Michelle V says:

    As a mum of three aged seven and under
    My ‘me’ time is scarce, is it any wonder?!
    So I really look forward to my daily shower
    It makes my mood sweet when I’ve been a bit sour.
    I don’t like to bathe and the reason why
    The thought of lying in my own germs makes me want to cry!

    • Kirsty says:

      I love it Michelle! How creative and true (especially about bathing…) Thanks so much for entering and good luck!

  4. Sarah says:

    Shower, especially since having kids as I get an extra guilt-free 3 minutes for each one that joins me.

    • Kirsty says:

      I like that thinking Sarah – by that calculation I can have 9 guilt free minutes in the shower every morning! Thanks for entering and good luck.

  5. Mary Preston says:

    I love a shower. I feel as if the worries, cares & grime of the day is being swept away.

    • Kirsty says:

      That is a great way of describing having a shower Mary. I personally need the pressure of the hot water to feel ready to face the day but a shower at night to wash the day away is also very satisfying. Thanks so much for entering – good luck!

  6. Claire L says:

    I love having a nice soak,
    but with a toddler? What a joke!
    And when shaving my legs
    (as my husband often begs)
    the shower washes away all the mess!

  7. Nicole H says:

    A bath for sure!!

    Nothing better then a nice, hot and relaxing bubble bath.
    Simply heaven <3.

    But I always have to make sure my 4 year old son is out or asleep or my peace will be ruined!!

    • Kirsty says:

      Nicole, you make a bath sound so good! And of course, all kids should be asleep or otherwise engaged so you can really enjoy it – that’s also a reason why I don’t do baths, by the time my kids are sorted each night, it’s too late for me to have much of a soak. Thanks so much for entering and good luck!

  8. Zara Stevens says:

    I lived in Japan for 5 years & some of their baths are so small your knees are up near your chest when you sit! So showers were (& still are) definitely my choice!

    • Kirsty says:

      Zara, that would have been quite the experience! I’ve only been to Japan briefly, on the way to and from Europe, but I would have loved to have spent more time there. Thanks so much for entering – good luck!

  9. Merryl says:

    I love a long soak in a bath with a good book, but I have dermatitis and warm or hot water makes me itch. This means that I have quick cold showers. Bearable in summer, but torture in winter.

    • Kirsty says:

      My son is much the same. If he overheats in the bath or shower his skin breaks out and becomes itchy. He lives for cold showers in summer but as the weather turns cooler we can’t let him continue those so he is back to slightly warm ones. Thanks for entering – good luck!

  10. Melissa O says:

    Im a shower person, quick, easy and no fuss. When I want a little luxury I love a nice bubble bath, book and glass of wine. Have done that since the little miss was born though. 🙂

    • Kirsty says:

      The shower is quick and easy, I agree. As I’ve said before I love the idea of a bath but for me, the reality never lives up to the dream! Thanks for entering – good luck!

  11. Natasha says:

    I do enjoy a nice relaxing bath to unwind but definitely a shower person!

    I love how I feel after a shower. Aside from the fact that a shower leaves you feeling cleaner and fresher, it makes you feel better when your sick or injured and something about the water pouring down on you helps to calm and soothe the soul.

    That’s why as a nurse I take the time to make sure all my patients get a shower rather than a sponge if possible! Not to mention being my best friend through all 3 of my labours!

    • Kirsty says:

      I totally get that Natasha. I think the shower for me is more than just getting clean. It’s really a time I can reflect on things and get my thoughts together as well as just enjoy the pressure of the water. The shower helped me in labour too – handy, isn’t it? Thanks for entering – good luck!

  12. Mel Olrich says:

    Um I do love a bath, but unfortunately it is about as big a shoe box so for now I am a shower person. However even the places I have stayed in with a bath I haven’t made use of them…

    • Kirsty says:

      I know what you mean Mel. I have lived in our new place for 6 weeks now and i still haven’t come close to using the corner spa in my ensuite. I would like to though! Thanks for entering – good luck!

  13. Rebekah says:

    Bath! Bath! Bath! If I close my eyes I feel like I’m in a luxurious spa with a view of the mountains instead of in an old lime green hunk of porcelain with grime stained grout. Bubbles help the illusion too! 🙂 Two more hours until I get to indulge tonight! 🙂

    • Kirsty says:

      Rebekah, I just moved from a house with a green toilet – I’m sure the bath would have been green at one time too so I understand your pain! I like your solution too – bubbles help relax as well as hide the green – enjoy your soak tonight. Thanks so much for entering – good luck!

  14. Lisa Wood says:

    I am such a bath person. I would soak every evening in a bath with coconut oil. Its the only thing that I do miss in our Motorhome. I can live without anything, but gee my bubble bath (my alone time) used to save my sanity! Maybe one day we will have a bath again!
