Review: Earth Baby Baby Lotion

Thanks to my involvement at the Product Review Place, I had the opportunity to test out some wonderful baby lotion.  Vivian (my 3-month-old) has had problems with dry skin pretty much since birth. She went through a bad baby acne phase, followed by a weird dry skin phase, and still suffers from eczema on her arms and legs. So I have been using all sorts of lotions on her to try to help the dryness.

I was excited to get to try a baby lotion from Earth Baby. When the box arrived, I opened it to find a nice bottle of lotion with a cute monkey on the front.  Which made me smile- you can't beat a cute picture like that! I was pleasantly surprised by the smell of the lotion when I opened the bottle to sniff it. The fragrance is light, not at all overpowering, perfect for a baby.

The lotion is made of a mixture of cocoa butter and essential oils of honey, chamomile and vanilla. It contains  90% certified organic ingredients, no phthalates or dyes or mineral oil.  That's nice when you're putting it on your newborn's sensitive skin.

I've been using this lotion on Vivian for about a week now, and I am definitely noticing a difference in the severity of her skin's dryness- it's really helping!

You can buy this lotion on the Earth Baby website. It sells for $16.50 for a 6 fl oz bottle. Earth Baby also carries other products like moisturizing wipes, shampoo and sunscreen, to name a few.
