Every person in my family – my husband, myself, and both our children – have sensitive skin. In each of us the sensitivities range – for instance my daughter has occasional eczema outbreaks and my son can get rough patches and red spots on his cheeks – so when I’m purchasing skin care, I always look for something anyone of us can use in a pinch.
Products that are hypo-allergenic, non-irritating, soothing and fragrance-free or dye-free are important, so I was very interested in trying out the Aveeno Baby Wash & Shampoo as well as the Aveeno Baby Daily Lotion for my son. I used both products exclusively on him for almost 3 weeks and here is my review.
Aveeno Baby Wash & Shampoo
This baby wash & shampoo is soap-free, made with an hypoallergenic oatmeal-based formula, and has a soft scent. I enjoyed using the Aveeno Baby Wash & Shampoo for many reasons – firstly, I love multipurpose products! The shampoo & wash is super gentle and didn’t irritate my baby boy’s eyes, it gets him clean and smelling good without strong perfumes or dyes. It did not dry out his skin, even with daily bathing.
Aveeno Baby Daily Lotion
The Aveeno Baby Daily Lotion moisturizes and protect baby’s skin for 24 hours, and contains natural colloidal oatmeal, contains no dyes, is non-comedogenic and is fragrance-free. I used this lotion every night after his shower – it has been part of his bedtime routine since he was a teeny, tiny baby! I also use this lotion on myself – I love the lack of fragrance, how quickly it seems to absorb without any greasy or filmy feeling, and how it leaves the skin feeling smooth and healthy.
I enjoyed both of these products and would purchase them again in the future. It was perfect for my family’s sensitive skin, it was non-drying, and I really enjoyed the very light, clean scent. Find a $1.00 off coupon for both Aveeno Baby products here.
