PRODUCT REVIEW: AVEENO BABY DAILY MOISTURE LOTION

The most wonderful feeling on this earth is to touch your baby for the first time.Its heavenly that soft skin just out from the protection of your womb where you took at most care of your diet during your pregnancy so that your baby’s  skin will be healthy and glowing.The same way once the baby is out the search begins for the skincare of the new born.Wondering why I am writing about new born when my baby is almost two while reviewing a baby skin care product.Well! Aveeno Baby has been with us since the day one and nothing makes me more happy to review this product which has been launched in India.Now I don’t have to ask my relatives to bring it while they visit India.

Babies have really sensitive skin and the product used should be the best. It’s not about the sensitivity but just that whatever we use should not be harsh on baby’s skin .So while choosing a lotion which is actually going to stay for quite a long time unlike the bodywash and shampoos which gets washed off you need to be cautious about the ingredients used.

One of the reasons why I have been using Aveeno Baby since day one is the fact of it being fragrance free.When we buy baby products with fragrance and kind of associate it with baby smell is nothing but adding layers of chemical to your baby’s skin.Aveeno Baby apart from being fragrance free is paraben free and phthalate free as well.Paraben is the most commonly used preservative used in skin care products and has been associated with cancer causing chemicals although it is in the research stage but it is always advisable to buy products for baby which are paraben free.Phthalate on the other hand is added in products to enhance fragrance and absorption and again in research stage and hence advisable to avoid baby products with phthalate.Aveeno Baby is free of these commonly used dangerous chemicals.

The product is mild ,light ,non greasy and blends well, it’s stays on for a longest of time if applied immidietly after bath.Aveeno Baby moistures the skin for the longest of time even in winters.As new born’s skin drys out quite frequently and needs reapplication but with Aveeno we never faced the problem of drying out.

It has the goodness of oats which  makes it one of the best product for baby skin. As oats relieve the dry skin and prevents itchy dry skin

The lotion is non sticky as I mentioned and doesn’t make the baby skin oily as other baby products available over the counter do. Infact it makes the baby skin supple and soft without making it looking greasy.

I highly recommend Aveeno Baby and this has been in our essentials since day one.Till date that is two yrs almost I could not find a single drawback of this product. And now when this product is in India all I can do is recommend it to you all.

Product Review-Mamaearth Mothers Range

As a mother we go through a lot and expect very less in return,all we want is love from our babies and care from the loved ones.When we talk about motherhood and the products related to it are all about babies.So here comes a brand which launched its Mothers range exclusive for mothers  on Mothers day.

So as you all know I have been using the Mama Earth Baby products since a while now and loving it.When Mama Earth  launched its Mothers range of product, I was more than excited to try them out and guess what! They were kind enough to send across three of their products for an honest review.

This is what I received

1.Mamaearth Calming Body Wash

2.Mamaearth Argan Hair Mask

3.Mamaearth Nourishing Body Lotion

(Packaged nicely in  a beautiful travel kit/bag )

I have a habit of checking the ingredients (side effects of being mother) so when I Unboxed and held my hands on the non toxic Mothers range the first thing I did was a quick glance at the back side of the bottles to check and was more than happy to see the check boxes with

  • phthalates free
  • mineral oil free
  • paraben free
  • SLS free 

marked on it.And yes not to miss it is enriched with their secret mama’s love oil.

I have been using the Body wash and body Lotion daily and have used the hair mask thrice.This review is based on my personal experience with the product.

Mamaearth Calming Body Wash

As a mother all you long for is a long pampering session where you can take bath without your kids knocking at the door and asking you what you are doing inside.Well that is a dream but at least if you can grab that loofah and apply a body wash is a bargain enough.So my bargain is with this product.

The body wash is lathery and has a strong soothing peppery fragrance.A small amount on loofah is enough for a soapy lathery bath.

I have a dry skin and it didn’t dry my skin out post bath.After my bath I use the lotion which is reviewed below as well.

Mamaearth Nourishing Body Lotion

So I have a dry skin , the real test of the skin care products comes in with the lotions.It has be extremely long-lasting with moisturising my skin to get a thumbs up from my end.The Mama Earth Lotion has again a very peppery fragrance just like the body wash but is milder.

The Lotion is not sticky and quickly absorbs into the skin keeping the skin hydrated and moisturised for a long time.I will be testing this product again in winters to see the effectiveness as the real test of lotions is when they are applied in winters.

I suggest using the lotion after patting your skin dry after bath with a body wash.Reason is simple body wash is not harsh and doesn’t dry the skin out patting and not rubbing retains the effect of water on the skin and applying a lotion on a hydrated skin makes the lotion last for a longer duration.

Mamaearth Argan Hair Mask

I have used it thrice and let me share my very honest experience with you all.As I have mentioned I have a dry skin and yes I have dry hair too.

The first time I used the hair mask it left my hair dry and frizzy.I was disappointed but I thought of giving it a try at least  thrice before giving my verdict.The second time I used and I expected the same result but to my surprise my hair felt soft ,the effect was visible a day after the use.The same happened when I used it for the third time my hair felt soft and shiny.I used it thrice in a span of 10 days and my hair feel much better now.

The reason why my hair felt dry and frizzy for the first time was I was expecting a miracle in just one wash.Hair products have a long-term effect and specially when you have dry hair the products take time to show results.

While I was pregnant I never bothered about checking the products I used but I seriously wish I did.And I so wish MamaEarth was launched then,I would leave a suggestion with MamaEarth to introduce a pregnancy Gift pack so that I can gift my expecting friends with this bundle of non toxic goodness.

I will keep you all posted with my ongoing reviews on these products regarding the long-term effect and any thing new that crops up on Instagram. So follow me there if you have not done already and I shall see you there.

Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post ,I was sent across the products mentioned for an honest review.The skin care products have different results on different skin type and my experience is based on my skin and hair type which is dry.
