Holiday Gift for Babies and New Mothers
I love natural skincare products, not just for myself, but for the rest of my family too. Babies are really the ones that need great natural skincare products the most, but finding a good line of effective natural skincare isn’t always easy. Lalabee Bathworks specializes in organic natural skincare for mothers and babies, and the company’s products looked like just the thing for my infant son’s delicate skin. I was delighted when I was given a chance to review some of their wonderful-sounding products for infants.
I received the Body Balm, Baby Butter and Bottom Balm to review. Because Benjamin’s sensitive skin is prone to rashes, I was especially excited to try out the Bottom Balm. This 100% natural balm contains extracts of organic calendula, organic chamomile and organic lavender, which are known for their healing and anti-inflammatory properties. The base of organic oil and beeswax creates a firm to the touch, incredibly rich balm that I couldn’t wait to try.
I found the Bottom Balm had a slightly sweet smell that was very appealing. The next time Benjamin had a diaper rash, I applied a fingerful to his bottom before putting on a fresh diaper. The rash had faded by the next diaper change and was gone within a few days! Benjamin’s rashes can be truly awful, complete with bleeding and weeping sores, so having a balm that heals as well as relieving pain is so important to me!
The Body Balm is a relaxing lavender-scented balm designed especially for infant massage. My entire family fell in love with this balm, and I often catch my oldest son rubbing his finger in the container and smoothing the balm on his cheeks. The smell is so soothing and the creamy feel of the balm on the skin is unbeatable. Despite the firmness of the Body Balm, it absorbed very well into the skin once it warmed up a bit. I love putting it on Benjamin after a bath because it leaves his skin amazingly smooth, it smells wonderful and it relaxes him before bed.
The final product I tested was the Baby Butter. This product had the softest consistency of the three products and absorbed the quickest into the skin. The product is formulated with low allergy ingredients and is unscented, so it is a great choice for sensitive skin. When I saw how richly moisturizing the balm was, I started using it on Benjamin’s knees since he has rough patches on them from crawling. The Baby Butter worked so well at smoothing and protecting his delicate knees that I soon found myself using it on my own dry and cracked elbows. The difference the Baby Butter made was amazing, and I loved how soft it made my skin feel.
