I recently became a Bzzz Agent .
I was sent a sample of Aveeno's Baby Essential Moisture Shampoo and some diaper cream samples. And some coupons to hand out. I have 2 coupons left and 2 lucky winners will win a $1/1 any Aveeno product. First read my thoughts on Aveeno products!
Here is what I think of Aveeno in general and then my reviews of the products. My 2-year-old daughter (who has food allergies) has sensitive skin. From about six months to just a little over a year she had really bad eczema. It was hard to control, but I did find some simple solutions that worked for us. The main bath product we use for her is Aveeno. It was the only product that worked for her sensitive baby skin that didn't cost and arm and a leg. It would have been so nice to have her smell all lavendary, but to watch her skin breakout was not nice at all. We haven't tried anything else since she was six months olds. We use the creamy wash for her and I was excited to try the Aveeno Baby Essential Moisture Shampoo. It was a little different from the creamy wash, and I worried that it had a light fragrance. But it washed her hair really well and didn't cause any breakouts. Which leads me to diaper rash.
I quickly learned that diaper creams have fragrence in them adding to the diaper rash problem. If you can smell them, then there is fragrence -- no question. Aveeno makes a really good (fragrance-free) diaper cream -- Soothing Relief Diaper Rash Cream. When my daughter was younger, again during the six month to 18 month range, I would use vaseline on every diaper change and double up with Aveeno diaper rash cream on rashes. Creams that swear to clear up in one use are just too good to be true. The truth is that diaper rash is caused by a reaction, whether it's teething, diaper cream, the diaper itself, illness, food allergy/sensitivity or something else it. So unless the reaction is under control, which may take a day or four the diaper rash will be there. I found that Aveeno diaper cream helps soothe the rashy area, and I would never think about using anything else.
Aveeno is not that costly, and I often can find it on sale. When it's on sale I search high and low for a coupon (or just save coupons for a sale). Sometimes Target even has a store coupon that I can combine with a manufacturer coupon. Aveeno also lasts a long time because we don't use a lot at one time because it is so concentrated. Yes, it would be nice to have Dora bath bubble to make bathtime more fun, but that's what the toys are for. Soap is for cleaning and should not cause a reaction.
