I received a complimentary product in exchange for my honest review.
Balm Baby is an eco-friendly company in beautiful Hawaii and they make a wide variety of all natural products from deodorant to soaps to diaper cream and many things in between. I am very excited that they have agreed to sponsor their Diaper Essentials Kit for the Merry Fluffy Christmas giveaway hop which includes the following fantastic, all natural products.
JUICE those WIPES! is a natural and organic concentrate used to make your own wipes solution for cloth wipes. It is formulated with Taylor’s liquid soap and scented with herbally infused oils and essential oils to not only smell good but to moisturize as well.
To make the wipes solution you add 1-2 tsp to 32 oz of water (remember, this is a concentrate). I happened to have 32 oz spray bottles lying around the house (really) so this was perfect for me. I mix up the solution in the large spray bottle and transfer it into my little spray bottle since a 32 oz bottle wouldn’t fit very well in my diaper bag! This is great though because I feel like I’m always making wipes solution by mixing it in my little spray bottle so now I just have to add the pre-made solution. A little goes a long way so I won’t need to buy more for quite a while!
This stuff smells amazing! I have noticed that the THinc. Skin products that I’ve tried smell very similar so if you have already tried one of their products then you have a good idea of what this smells like. It’s so earthy and woodsy and yummy smelling! I don’t like things that smell like fake perfume so I love this. It cleans really well, too. I spray a little on a cloth wipe and with a few swipes, K-Dub is nice and clean and smelling like a wood nymph. Love!
BALM! Baby Diaper Balm/1st Aid Ointment is nothing short of amazing. (Be warned that I am going to share a photo of a pretty gnarly diaper rash below). K-Dub is very prone to diaper rash and we can’t pinpoint the cause. We have tried eliminating foods, trying to isolate laundry detergent, changed my washing routine, to even coming *thisclose* to having him tested for allergies with no success. My only conclusion now is that he’s a sensitive kid who tends to have acidic poo (TMI, sorry). We have used prescription creams that work well, but then we have to buy disposable diapers to use the cream and let’s face it, who wants to run to the doctor every month or two for a diaper rash?
BALM! Baby Diaper Balm doesn’t look and feel like your typical diaper cream. It looks a little waxy and feels thick but smooth. A little goes a long way because it dissolves almost like coconut oil when you rub it. Come to think of it, it has some in it and feels almost like hardened coconut oil at first. It also has a wonderful woodsy smell” that I love.
I have tried a lot of cloth diaper safe diaper creams and each one I try, I like a little better than the one I tried before it. I may have finally found my perfect diaper balm! I put it on at the first sign of redness and it’s gone by the next diaper change.
When I received my review package I was immediately able to test out its potential awesomeness. K-Dub had one of his nasty diaper rashes again and I was about to treat it with my prescription cream since, as usual, nothing was working all that well. This photo comparison shows the improvement after one use of BALM! Baby Diaper Balm. The rash was on both cheeks with similar intensity and improvement.
Pretty remarkable, isn’t it? After 3 days of switching between BALM! Baby and Bactroban, K’s rash was gone.
