Review: Aveeno Baby products

Thanks to the fact that I'm a BzzAgent, I was recently sent some samples of Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Diaper Rash Cream and a bottle of Aveeno Baby Essential Moisture Shampoo to use with Vivian. I've heard a lot about Aveeno products, but have never used them myself, so was excited to get the chance. 

Diaper rash hasn't been a big problem with either of my kids, so I don't honestly have a lot of experience with a great number of diaper rash creams. But based on the few times that I have had to use a diaper rash treatment, this one stacked up nicely. The Aveeno Baby diaper rash cream is fragrance-free, which is nice when it's a product that I'm using on my baby. The other cream that I've used in the past has a really strong smell, and I never really liked it much.  I also liked how this cream went on- it spread nicely and wasn't sticky or greasy and the residue washed off my fingers easily.  The Aveeno Baby diaper rash cream is 13% zinc oxide, with soothing oat essence and natural willowherb. I was very impressed by this product- good smell, easy to use, an all around nice product.

The Aveeno Baby Essential Moisture Shampoo also got our vote of approval. Shampoo is something we're a little more familiar with. Vivian had a full head of hair from the time I was 6 months pregnant with her (so much that it was visible on ultrasound!), so we've been using lots of shampoo since she was born, in addition to the ones that we used once her brother finally grew hair at the age of 18 months :) 

This shampoo had a nice light fragrance- it smelled good when we were using it and left Vivian's hair with a very small amount of scent. Just the right amount, in my opinion.  Right now it's been 24 hours since I washed her hair, and it still smells nice and clean. The shampoo lathered well and rinsed off easily too. And when I got some in her eyes, she didn't complain, so it really is tear free.  This shampoo is made with natural wheat and oat and vitamin E.

So, if you're looking for some nice products to use on your little one, check the Aveeno Baby line of products out.  I think you'll be pleased with what you find! Aveeno Baby products range in price (on from $3.99-$10.49, and can be found at most food, drug, mass, club and specialty stores all over the United States, as well as on many online sites.
