Sensitive skin has always been a concern for our family and that’s why I make sure that the personal care products my boys use are as gentle as possible. Aveeno Baby has a passion for creating products that are nourishing, moisturizing and suitable for even a newborn’s sensitive skin, so when I was offered the chance to review Aveeno Baby Daily Lotion with natural colloidal oatmeal, I was interested to see how it worked for my boys.
Winter can be one of the harshest times of the year for a little one, because delicate skin gets dry and itchy when the temperature drops. My three-year-old son is no exception and I looked forward to discovering whether using the Aveeno Baby Daily Lotion over a two-week period would make a difference.
While both of my boys have issues with skin irritation, my youngest son is fair-skinned and suffers the most. I started applying the lotion on him every night before bed. He loved the feeling and giggled incessantly as I applied it to his arms, legs and body. I liked that the lotion absorbed quickly and I was especially pleased to see that his skin tone didn’t change at all after application. Since Benjamin is so fair, I have no trouble noticing when a lotion is causing irritation; his skin gets so red! The Aveeno Baby Daily Lotion with colloidal oatmeal didn’t change his skin tone at all.
After about a week of regular use I noticed that my son’s skin was even softer than it had been before I started using the lotion. Colloidal oatmeal has been said to relieve itchiness and help balance natural pH levels. As a result, Benjamin’s skin stayed nourished all day after regular use. Best of all, I never noticed the slightest bit of irritation from this gentle, fragrance-free lotion.
With sensitive skin being such a huge issue in my family, I am very happy to have found a lotion that is so effective at nourishing my boys’ dry skin. And with both my sisters expecting little ones in the next month or so, I’m planning on making sure that they have a supply of Aveeno Baby Daily Lotion too. My one-year-old nephew Chase already uses it regularly to ensure his pale skin stays nourished. I know both of my sisters will be happy to count on lotion that ensures their sweet new babies have healthy skin. If you’re looking for a non-irritating and moisturizing lotion for your baby, Aveeno Baby Daily Lotion may be just what your little one needs.
