When my daughter was first born, she began to get little red bumps all over her face, probably due to exposure to the detergent on our clothes. Then, because it was dry and cold, she began to get flaky, dry skin everywhere, but especially her face. Using the humidifier wasn’t helping.
So I went to my local Mother’s Market and asked the nearest salesperson about the best baby cream to use for infant “skin issues” as I delicately put it to her. I wasn’t about to say that my daughter looked like a molting, pimply teenager.
She directed me to the California Baby products, and also mentioned a few other contenders as well. I have used California Baby products before, namely their sunscreen, and have been happy with the results.
So, I chose the Calendula Cream, and it has been nothing short of fabulous. It hydrated her skin and cleared up the rashes overnight! If only we adults could find something so effective. Although I’m sure her newborn-ness has something to do with it as well.
I’m also currently using it for her chin and upper chest area, where she can get a little bumpy since her number one goal in life is to chew her fingers as much as possible now that she has the arm control to do so. I’m also using it after bathtime on her diaper area, mostly just because I can.
In short, I highly recommend this good-smelling, lightweight, all natural cream. The jar says that Mom can use it as a night cream, and I have to say I’m highly tempted!
