It’s a cream. For diaper rash — one wants a barrier…

… the best barrier (from urine, feces) is air — if possible, leave diapers off as much as possible. But if diapers are needed, then the best barrier is an ointment, not a cream. Desitin remains the best choice out there. Plain, generic zinc oxide is much, much less expensive but it is not as smooth as Desitin when applying.

Updating again…Diaper Rash Cream

Reasonably priced and effective, CeraVe is a respected name in skin care.Unfortunately, I have been going back and forth with my review of this product. Vine reviews are to be completed in a thirty day time period. But, I was not about to try anthing new on our baby until I had ‘tested the waters’ personally and researched as well.Ceramides: It appears to be a proven product and that in fact, babies are protected via their natural birth coating with ‘ceramides.’Dimethicone: In limited usage, it can relieve skin irritations quite effectively and based upon research thus far, not a hazard.Zinc oxide: Highly rated creams have up to 40% of this effective long term solution to treating diaper rash…what remains to be determined…do the ceramides in this product eliminate the necessity for so much zinc oxide?Did try the CeraVe diaper rash cream on our adult family member’s skin complaints and it did relieve and help.Most recently tried it on another adult who had teary eyes due to allergy causing irritation on the skin UNDER the eye, NOT IN THE EYE. The CeraVe Diaper Rash Cream relieved the irritation. In both cases, repeated application was necessary.Ultimately tried for diaper rash issues…seemed to burn and was not effective. Creams with 40% zinc oxide performed the best.

Leaves skin clean, smooth and without drying it out!

This baby wash is wonderful! It is smooth and "lotiony" when you put it on and lathers just a little bit without getting bubbles all over. Despite the lotion feel, it rinses off easily. It leaves your skin (an baby’s skin) smooth without drying it out like some baby washes and soaps tend to do. It’s kind of like Dove for babies!

Terrible

My son has eczema, and we are always looking for new products for his dry skin. We were using Aveeno Baby until I saw this at our grocery store. I thought I’d give it a try because it was cheaper than Aveeno. It does not moisturize very well at all, and almost sits on the surface of his skin without soaking in. I put it on and five minutes later it’s like I didn’t use anything. I don’t like using products with a bunch of parabens and toxins but this lotion is like using nothing at all compared to using the Aveeno or Burt’s Bees, both which work great. I will use it up but I will never buy it again.

Excellent option for adults also, ingredients list included

Because the standards are much higher for children’s products, I often consider them when deciding what to use on my skin. This one does contain mineral oil, which I try to avoid. Since it won’t be going on my face or hair, I’ll continue to use the product.I have been dealing with a patch of eczema on one arm that just does not want to go away. Often the products I put on exacerbated rather than helped, especially with the almost unendurable itching. I could tell within seconds that things weren’t going well as the itching would either increase or start up again and the area would quickly become inflamed.I put this over the patch as soon as this arrived at my doorstep. I am happy and very relieved to say that no inflammation occured and no itching started. All I felt was soft moisturized skin. I can feel a layer of moisturizer but it does not feel sticky.If anything changes, I’ll update this post. But for now it seems to be working and doing no harm.Scent: very light, it reminds me of some other baby product but I can’t identify it. Also slightly medicinal.Ingredients:WaterGylcerinRicinus Communis (Castor) seed oilMineral oilCetyl AlcoholGlyceryl StearateCaprylic/Capric TrigycerideOctyldodecanolCetyl PalmitatePEG-40 StearateGlycyrrhiza Inflata Root ExtractCeramide 31,2-HexandiolPhenoxyethanolPrioctone OlamineCaprylyl GlycolEthylhexylglycerinBenzyl AlcoholCitric Acid

Love Love Love This Cream!

I selected this cream for my 18 month old, who had been having some rashes due to dry skin on her legs. I don’t believe the rash she had was related to Eczema but when I had the opportunity to pick up this cream, I had the feeling it would do the job, and I was right! I had been rubbing Aveno Lavender Body Cream on her legs for a couple weeks but her legs still felt dry and flaky. I used a small amount of this cream for two night and BOOM the rash and dry skin was gone. This stuff is awesome!

Wonderful moisturizer, and not greasy feeling

I’ve been using the Eucerin Plus Intensive Repair Hand Cream for several years. My hands get incredibly dry, cracked and itchy year round. That stuff works great, but my one complaint about it is how oily/greasy it feels, for a good while after I put it on. This product, though, is an excellent alternate from a company I already trust. It doesn’t feel greasy, but it’s still thick and rubs in easily. It feels like it sinks in pretty quickly, without really feeling coated on your hands for awhile after application.There’s not really any scent to this one either, which I also really like about it. If anything, it just has a natural ingredients sort of scent (which I know makes no sense but hey). Nothing added, though.With one application a day, this creme helped the dryness on my skin and keeps my hands smooth and soft. I’ve also used it on my elbows which tend to get really elephant skin-like, and it has an awesome softening/smoothing effect there as well. So this is not just for eczema, or for babies, and a wonderful entire family product.

Wonderful for the whole family

First, I want to mention that this is a small bottle. The information in this listing does not give you the specifics on that. It is a 4oz. spray bottle. Despite that, I am immensely happy with this purchase.I read the reviews, information and even checked the product website about this item. I love that it is environmentally friendly and chemical free. Everything I read about it was glowing and wonderful, so I decided to buy it to use on my 4-year-old.My daughter has fine, wavy hair that is prone to flyaways and has a lot of snarls every morning. I use this liberally on her every morning. Yes, you still have to comb through the snarls (they don’t just disappear like magic), but this product helps as soon as it starts to get combed in. Also, despite the quantity I use on her hair, there is no sticky, stiff residue like most of the brands you can buy at the store. The smell is light and almost nondescript (which I prefer because of sensitivity to strong perfume or colognes). Later in the day, when the product has been well absorbed and my daughter has been through her normal crazy play routines, her hair is soft, tame and frizz-free.I have also used this item on my hair as has my teenager. It’s amazing how great it stands up to my thick, curly hair’s urge to frizz and my daughter’s relentless, damaging heat-styling. It is an amazing product and well-worth the price. I think that this size, with the thickness of the solution in the bottle, will easily last as long, if not longer than 2 bottles of the stuff I could buy at the store. That said, it really isn’t that much more expensive than the other brands.If you are looking for something that is more substance than smell and will last all day while not putting chemicals on your (or your baby’s) head, this is for you.

The only miracle is that they suckered me into paying this kind of money for it!

SOOOO dissapointed. This is super thick – like conditioner or lotion. It’s feels gross in my girls thin hair. It doesn’t work any better than anything else I have used…but at least for those I wasn’t out $30! (I bought the bigger bottle…plus shipping).

Great natural alternative

I started using set angler (again as a adult) and was looking for a more natural product. I love this! Smells ok and works good. I have recommended to those who have kids too! My only complaint is the changes in vendors & prices on Amazon.. Not consistent
