Over two weeks ago I flew over to London to attend the Blogfest in Kings Place. Just a few days beforehand I got word that a few bloggers went over with Aveeno because Aveeno was one of the sponsors at the blogging event. I was really excited to see their stand.
Both my children have eczema and with that dry skin. My oldest more so than my youngest. My four year old was diagnosed with eczema when he was only three months of age. Since we have been using Aveeno. We tried out the whole range. For nearly three years we have been using the Aveeno bath and cream with the green lid. Only to find out then that Aveeno Dermexa (Only available in Ireland) is way more efficient and effective. To keep their dry skin and eczema at bay, we need to cream them once a day and bath them every two to three days. Sometimes it can flare up more but it’s okay again after a week or two.
When Aveeno got in touch to work with me on their latest product range, I was more than happy to help out. With four years experience of using Aveeno, we were the perfect match.
Specially formulated with natural colloidal (finely ground) oatmeal, the new AVEENO® Baby range nourishes, soothes and protects your baby’s sensitive skin. The unscented range has been Paediatrician tested.
The benefits of oat
• Helps to restore and protect the natural moisture barrier of the skin
• Helps to comfort irritated skin
• Colloidal oatmeal granules act as micro-sponges absorbing dirt and dead skin cells
• Creates a protective film on the surface of skin
• Helps maintain normal skin pH
Aveeno released three new products from the baby range.
AVEENO® Baby Soothing Relief Baby Emollient Wash
This wash is brilliant for your little ones bath time. We have been using it the last week and also added it to the bath water. Up until now we never used any wash to add to the water. I used to put the Aveen Dermexa wash on their skin and wash it off after a while. So as well as applying the Aveeno Baby emollient wash to their skin, you can also add it to their bath water. Of course it’s soap and tear free which means I am also using it to wash their hair. RRP £8.50
AVEENO® Baby Soothing Relief Baby Emollient Cream
This cream can be combined with the wash after your little ones bath. It’s clinically proven to moisturise skin for 24 hours. This cream is part of our bedtime routine every evening. I’d rather keep them creamed every evening and not having to deal with flare ups for days which can be tricky to get rid of quickly. Especially when your four year old hates being creamed. As a result his skin is flared up on his back at the moment. Hopefully we will be back on track with this soon. RRP £8.50
AVEENO® Baby Daily Care Barrier Cream
The barrier cream is specifically designed for delicate newborn skin. It creates a breathable skin barrier on the nappy area, protecting it against external irritants. I’ll be honest when it comes to cream that is applied on the nappy area. Since my littlest, who now is 22 months old, had a very bad nappy rash when she was younger, I have never applied any nappy cream. I used to apply Sudocrem which basically made it worse. She does get a bit of redness every now and then when she is teething but I never apply anything and just carefully clean her bum. This cream is probably brilliant though as I never had a bad experience with any of the Aveeno range. RRP £6.99
