I am dreading winter for so many reasons but one of the biggest is because of the DRY SKIN that arrives in our house when winter and its dry air hits!
Both my older children (2 and 4 years old) have really dry skin in the winter and I am constantly slathering lotions on their hands and faces!
My newest addition, my 8 week old son has yet to experience the dryness of winter but I am definitely going to be on the defense and slathering him with lotions and oils this Fall to prevent any dryness!
So as you can imagine, the one thing that is a must in our daily skincare routine is lotions and putting it on after bath time especially! Their faces are always the dryest from washing them after eating, not drying well enough and just the general dryness of the weather. I make sure to always put lotion on after shower and make sure to wash their faces well in the shower to remove any dead skin or dried on food that is irritating their skin!
My youngest baby enjoys a soothing massage after his bath with a massage oil! It keeps his skin hydrated and gets him ready for bed!
But above all, our skincare involves ONLY natural and organic body care products that DO NOT contain harmful ingredients like artificial preservatives, dyes, chemicals or fragrances. I look for products that contain ingredients I know and recognize like Shea Butter, Lavender, Olive Oil and other common ingredients I use every day!
And what company meets those very strict guidelines for my family? Baby Mantra and their great line of skincare products! Created by two sisters on a mission to provide safe and ecologically sound skincare, Baby Mantra is a certified natural, cruelty-free and gluten-free baby skincare line that offers environmentally conscious products from ingredients to packaging. All products are made in the U.S. and are inspired by all-natural home-based remedies.
I received their entire line of products and I must say I am really impressed! Their skincare line includes a Newborn Shampoo & Wash, 3-in-1 Bubble Bath, Sham poo + Wash, Calming Lotion, Calming Massage Oil and Detangling Conditioner.
For my youngest, my 8 week old, I was most excited to try the Calming Massage Oil. I had been wanting to start nightly massages with him to connect and calm him but I found I didn't have any massage oil in the house. The Baby Mantra oil contains only a few ingredients which I LOVE and it worked great to give my son a smooth massage and keep his sensitive skin moisturized and smooth! I absolutely LOVE our massage time at night with the Calming Massage Oil!
We also use the Newborn Shampoo and Wash for bath time with our baby and it smells great, washes great and I can't stop smelling my son after bath time now! :) Plus, I trust the ingredients and feel safe putting it on my son!
For my daughter and her long hair (that I struggle brushing daily!), I LOVE the Detangling Conditioner! This is the first (and LAST!) detangler I use with my daughter - it smells great and works great and now we don't struggle brushing anymore! I know her hair will only get more tangled as she gets older so I am so glad to have this Detangling Conditioner on hand! Best of all, the ingredients are all safe for my precious daughter, her hair and and her skin!
And for my son, our favorite products for him is the Bubble Bath and Calming Lotion. He LOVES bubble baths and this Bubble Bath allows him lots of fun bubbles and a fun bath! The Lotion helps keep his very dry skin soothed and hydrated...especially with the dry winter air arriving! I love the soothing ingredients that I know like Aloe and Honeysuckle that calms and relaxes along with soothes and hydrates!
So as you can see, Baby Mantra products are great for every child in my house from age 8 weeks to 4 years old! I love that one company has created every thing I need for every moment of the day from morning to bath time, summer to winter and my children are now hydrated, having fun in the bath, not dreading hair brushing time anymore, and soothed and moisturized before bed!
