out with burt’s bees and in with aquaphor
It’s official, I am obsessed with P. This little girl consumes all of my thoughts and has taken me away from blogging, reading, shopping, and the basic upkeep of myself. I may look a hot mess, but she doesn’t. That’s why it bothered me so much when she got diaper rash. Trust me, I knew that babies got diaper rash and was not upset because of that. I was upset that Burt’s Bees Diaper Cream and Baby Powder didn’t protect her bum. Her little booty was so raw from all of her bowel movements, and that cream didn’t help her. Her skin was so pink, and mommy wasn’t too happy about that. B suggested that we stop using Burt’s Bees so we did. We then started using good ol’ Vaseline because we figured we couldn’t go wrong with that, and it helped a little bit. Thankfully, we had a doctor’s appointment already scheduled and could ask her for her recommendation. She immediately suggested that we use Aquaphor’s Diaper Rash Cream. Thank goodness! It worked wonders. It truly was a healing ointment. And yes, it cleared her rash up within hours just as they promised, and now I understand why its the pediatrician recommended brand. So from P and I, we want to say thank you Aquaphor for protecting and healing her delicate skin and goodbye to Burt’s Bees Diaper Cream and Baby Powder for not doing so.
Aquaphor Diaper Rash Cream: 5 stars
Burt’s Bees Diaper Cream and Baby Powder Product Review: 1 star
According to the description, the cream goes on like a cream and dries to a “soft powdery finish;” however, my cream was a little oily and runny before it even touched her skin. Not sure if that was normal, but I’m guessing its not. The cream was stored at room temperature so the temperature shouldn’t have played a part in the consistency of this product. Since the oil had separated from the cream prior to application, this cream was a bit messy to put on for me. On top of my consistency complaint, it didn’t protect or heal her precious skin.
I wouldn’t recommend this product. P didn’t like having a raw booty and neither did I. Perhaps the normal Diaper Rash Ointment works, but I won’t be trying it. I recommend Aquaphor’s Diaper Rash Cream.
