Skin care is a HIGH priority in our home, as both my tot and myself suffer from extremely sensitive skin. Neither of us can handle heavily perfumed or synthetic products regardless of their so-called “hypoallergenic” formulas. Doing so almost certainly flares the ‘ol eczema and leaves our skin looking more fowl-like than human.
Since we were heading to the pool, I thought today would be an EXCELLENT day to give them a try. Each bottle is beautifully designed in the familiar Eric Carle style, which my tot LOVED. He was far more interested in the bottles than the actual product. They each open and close easily, which is OOBER important when your hands are slippery, and your tot has a case of the squirms.
Sunny Sunscreen- SPF 35 with both UVA and UVB protection. The lotion itself is extremely thick, which I like to think helps it remain on my tots skin through his countless dips in and out of the pool. Its not greasy at all, and reminds me of body butter in texture. The balanced, transparent formula left my tots skin completely protected. Its a mineral based, fragrance free, organic lotion which means we had no fear of breaking out in mystery rashes after using the product. After an hour and a half at the pool my tots skin was sunburn free which left this momma OOBER IMPRESSED!
The Good: Doesn’t smell like a pina colada, non-greasy, transparent, organic, doctor reccommended
The Not-So-Good: VERY thick but it still spreads easily
Playful Wash- After a day in the water we hoped right into the bath to wash off the chlorine and yuckiness that accompanies a community pool. The Playful Wash is a 2-in-1 shampoo + body gel formula, which to me meant LESS TIME scrub-a-dubbing. After lathering my tot up the formula rinsed off with just two full cups of water. His hair was left feeling silky, his body felt soft and clean, and this momma was HAPPY it didn’t seem to bother his eyes when I washed his face.
The Good: Organic, doctor and hospital recommended, EWG top rated for safety, light citrus scent, rich lather
The Not-So-Good: I can’t think of a single thing.
Soothing Cream- A tot massage has been part of our night time routine since we brought our bundle of joy home from the hospital. NOTHING soothes a baby more than feeling the loving strokes of a parents hand gently massaging the stress of the day away (yes, tots have stress too). The Soothing Cream is specially formulated for tots with itchy, bothered skin. The organic formula is not too thick, but not too thin. It spreads evenly and absorbed quickly. Better still, his PJ’s went on easily, without that sticky lotion-y feel other brands leave behind.
The Good: Organic, balanced, doctor recommended, EWG top rated for safety, goes on easy, non-greasy, absorbed quickly
The Not-So-Good: No scent. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t want a perfumed baby, but a light all-natural scent would be nice at the end of the day.
