Product review: Aveeno Baby

My little "Cherub" has been suffering from dried out skin and eczema on her face intermittently. Hubby & I have been tried several fragrance free body washes and moisturising creams, but found the lotions to dry out her skin. So when I was asked to review the Aveeno Baby products, I was only too pleased to see how they would work on our little "Cherub".

The Aveeno Baby's range are hypoallergenic making them suitable for newborns and babies with sensitive skin. Within the range is:
  • Soothing Relief Creamy Wash
  • Daily Lotion
  • Baby Wash & Shampoo
  • Soothing Relief Moisture Cream
Soothing Relief Creamy Wash - is a luscious, creamy lotion which lathered up beautifully when washing "Cherub" leaving her skin feeling soft. "Cherub" gets very excited when we use this product on her, and wants to rub her hands in it and wash herself. Unlike other wash products we've tried, this product is fragrance free and does not seem to dry her skin out.

Daily Lotion - is a non-greasy, fragrance free, thin lotion that is easy to rub in to the skin, unlike other thicker moisturising lotions, which take a long time and causes "Cherub" to get upset. This lotion left "Cherub's" skin feeling smooth and moist. While the product mentions it moisturises and protects skin for 24 hours, we needed to reapply the lotion to "Cherub" again in the morning.

Baby Wash & Shampoo - is a lightly scented body wash and shampoo, that is hypoallergenic and soap free. It claims to be gentle on the eyes, well after "Cherub" brushed a handful of lathered soap into her eyes, she did not react, and her eyes were not red, hence we believe this claim is valid! As a shampoo it was easy to use, and lathered up well. We only used this wash once, as "Cherub" loves the "Soothing Relief Creamy Wash".

Soothing Relief Moisture Cream - is a luscious, creamy lotion which we found easy to rub in. It worked well on the highly inflamed areas on "Cherub's" neck, and unlike the "Daily Lotion", did not need reapplying in the morning. We also liked that it was non-greasy and fragrance free.

We would definitely use the "Soothing Relief Creamy Wash" and "Soothing Relief Moisture Cream" again, as we found it worked well on "Cherub's" dry skin.

Note: no payment was received for this review.


  1. Baby care products are essential requirement for babies but in my opinion baby have soft and sensitive skin so parents should choose good quality baby products for babies.

  2. I agree kids care! My girls have both had/have dry skin and eczema, so we prefer to buy good quality products that are low or free of fragrance, and soap-free, so not to irritate their skin further.
