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!
