As a Blinging Mommy twice over now, I’ve tried a lot of baby products. And as a Blinging Beauty blogger, I’ve gotten familiar with a number of baby brands across the board, including the conventional, organic, all-natural, luxe, and budget brands. I have a growing list of faves, and organic body care company Lavanila remains high on the roster.
Already a fan of Lavanila The Healthy Baby Bottom, I jumped at the chance to try The Healthy Baby Lotion. Lotion is one beauty item we are NEVER without, so I knew that this would be a necessary addition to my baby product arsenal. Based on the brand, my expectations were high, and The Healthy Baby Lotion did not disappoint!
Here are the deets on Lavanila The Healthy Baby Lotion:
Our 100% natural lotion contains 30 essential vitamins and minerals that support the health & development of delicate baby skin.
Traditional Body Lotions use synthetic preservatives and chemicals including parabens, silicone, fragrance and petrochemicals that can accumulate in the bloodstream, prevent the absorption of beneficial ingredients, and irritate babies sensitive skin.
The Healthy Baby Lotion is 100% Natural and completely free of harsh chemicals. We use nourishing botanicals and a natural, paraben-free preservative system to allow faster absorption of 30 essential vitamins and minerals that support the health and development of delicate baby skin. 100% Healthy.
NO: Sulfates, Parabens, Phthalates, Silicone, Petrochemicals, Propylene Glycol, Mineral Oil, Formaldehyde, Synthetic Fragrance or dyes.
Here is what I love about Lavanila The Healthy Baby Lotion:
1. The consistency: Both the Blinging Baby and Blinging Big Girl have supple, baby soft skin (unlike mom, boo hoo). That said, the consistency of Lavanila The Healthy Baby Lotion is perfect for their moisturizing needs. It’s a little lighter than your average baby lotion, and I love that. Surprisingly, it even works on mommy’s super dry skin!
2. The fragrance: All it takes is a quick rub and my brown baby smells as sweet as she looks. I’m wild about the light coconut fragrance, and a little goes a long way. I would definitely recommend this for anyone with sensitive skin, whatever the age, because the soft, neutral scent would layer well with other body products without clashing.
3. The packaging: Lavanila The Healthy Baby Lotion sports a standard flip cap BUT they did something great here. This little bottle lives in my B.A.P./diaper bag, yet somehow it doesn’t open unexpectedly and drench my cell phone or other essentials (been there, done that, still haven’t learned my lesson…)
So I give Lavanila 5 Blings for a moisturizing, lightweight baby lotion that absorbs easily and smells great!
Pros: Lovely coconutty fragrance, not heavy or greasy.
Buy Again: Yes!
Packaging: 4.5 Blings
Overall: 5 Blings
