AVEENO® Baby Soothing Relief Cream
Clinically proven to restore lost moisture for 24 hours.
I use this cream on my baby every night and I find it very gentle on the skin and does not have overpowering scent, which I like.It is non oily/greasy and seems very gentle on the skin.
We used this from birth as I have incredibly sensitive skin and always find Aveeno excellent. It was great as a thick moisturiser but I felt I had to apply it a great deal as DD's skin dries up quickly due to her eczema. My sister loves it as a moisturiser and for her dermatitis so I've given them all to her. All in all, great as a normal kid moisturiser but not great for eczema.
The Aveeno brand is a name that Mother's at my daughter's day care have been talking about. Many have been recommending this product to provide soothing skin relief especially for dry skin so it was great to trial this product for myself on my little girl.
The cream is quite thick and not overly scented, upon application it did seem to be quite thick and greasy, but once absorded the skin felt nourished and was of great benefit for dry little legs. A product worth trying for sure.
I've used this on little miss 15months who's skin is sensitive (not as sensitive as mine) for about two weeks, and it worked ok. She has had quite bad nappy rash for the last few weeks but i don't think it was the aveeno products.
But unfortunately, ever since we started using the wash and the cream i've been breaking out in hives and i've had several days where i could only see after i took antihistamines. So i'm going to keep searching cause i can't use something on bubbi if i'm going to react to it that strongly.
I also personally found the scent quite strong and not entirely pleasing.
I am loving this cream it is so gentle with no strong fragrances to cause irritation! I am using it on both my 2 and 4 year olds and a little bit really goes a long way but their skin (and mine) is really smooth and soft even after only a few uses!
My daughter (22 months) was recently admitted to the hospital with allergic eczema from a reaction to a conditioner. On coming home, she was suffering from very dry, flaking skin and had virtually lost the top layer of skin from her body, so was quite sensitive. So I was interested in testing the Aveeno range as I’d heard it was suitable for use in cases of eczema.
The cream itself is rich and very silky. Once on the skin, it absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave a greasy feeling or a layer on top of the skin. Certainly the next day after use, there wasn’t a feeling of dryness on her skin, which was important as that was one of the claims of the product. You wouldn’t need to use a lot so would prove to be of better value. My daughter has still got skin peeling 4 weeks later on her foot around her heel and I found that it wasn’t able to eliminate that completely.
The product itself was impressive; however I was a little disappointed in the ingredient listing. I was expecting there to be less alcohol based ingredients in something that was promoted as a natural product. If we experienced another eczema event similar to our first one, I probably wouldn’t rely on it to provide the relief that pure paraffin cream provided.
However as a day to day option in the winter for those predisposed to dry skin, I imagine that it would be more that suitable. Overall, a lovely product that lives up to the claims – but could probably work on using more friendly ingredients.
This cream is WONDERFUL on my childrens skin! My 7 month old had a few dry patches that would dissapear with other moisturisers, but be back before her next bath, but after 3 days of using Aveeno, the dry patches have gone for good! I am thrilled. My 2 year old had a few red spots on his bottom from his night pull-ups that have now almost dissapeared and my 9 year old daughter had dry, itchy skin on her back the other day which was soothed instantly with the cream.
The only negative is this: After seeing how well it worked on my littlies, i used it on my own face as i have fairly dry skin. After using it for 2 days, i had a HUGE breakout, and my skin seemed really shiny (but not really oily, hard to explain)... HOWEVER... I persevered for a bit longer and my skin has now cleared up, not only that, but a tiny little bit of that shine has continued, but only on my cheeks, so it actually looks like a dewy youthfulness..... LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you Aveeno, i think it's pretty clear that i will be buying your products from now on :-)
I loved this cream!
It feels really thick and creamy when you feel it between your hands, it has a very mild, pleasant smell and really does moisturise effectively.
My favourite thing about it is how quickly it absorbs into my 10 month old Daughters' skin. As the weather gets chilly, I really don't like creams that take ages to absorb, as I found that she would start to get quite cold and upset if I spent too long rubbing and rubbing a cream in before I was able to get her singlet and wondersuit on, ready for bed. This cream is fantastic in that regard, the fastest to absorb of all the products I have tried.
We reviewed the "Soothing Relief Creamy Wash" at the same time and I found that the combination of products has been fantastic on my Daughters' skin. Prior to starting the trial, she had a rash on her back and belly which just would not clear up. The rash would be much more red and inflamed after her bath of an evening, and she would often be scratching at it, through her clothes. Now, after 2 -1/2 weeks, the rash is nearly completely gone! I am very happy. I think that the rash was being inflamed by the bath product we had been using prior to this one.
As a bonus, my hands also feel much softer and smoother since we started using the products.
I've been using this on my 5 month old for the last few weeks and I've noticed that his irritated skin has really cleared up quickly.
A little of this lotion really goes a long well, so as well as being a great product it will be great value for money.
I love that this product has very little scent, so that I can still smell that beautiful baby smell, and now he has the gorgeous baby skin to match.
I'd recommend this product to anyone with a child that has sensitive skin.
My little one was 5 months old when I first used this product with her. Having sensitive skin myself I did not expect it to be any different from other creams claiming to do the same thing.
This product however is extremely different!! It goes such a long way, and sooths both my own and my babies skin. It has a beautiful smell unlike other products for sensitive skin which lack scent to help prevent irritation.
This cream is also really nice to rub in, it's not sticky or oily and it doesn’t hang around on your skin like other moisturizers. It soaks in nicely and makes you skin smell gorgeous and feel gorgeous at the same time!!
I have already recommended this product, and I love using it!
I found this product just great!
My bub was only 7 weeks old when I first carefully tested this cream out on his skin so I was a little apprehensive. However, it proved to be as soothing and as gentle on his delicate skin as I had been promised. In fact, this product is so gentle that as well as using this product on his body I also am comfortable using it when his cheeks are dry.
I found this product nice and easy to use as it was nice and creamy, rub in easily and went a long way. As well as this it did not have a strong smell which I found nice.
Overall I would happily tell other mums of new bubs to try it out as a gentle and safe option for babies with dry and sensitive skin.
This product is amazing!!
It has a great smell and the cream rubs into my sons skin so easily and doesn't leave his skin greasy.
My son has dry skin on his feet and inbetween his toes and since using this cream it has left his skin smooth. I will be recommending this to all my friends and family.
It is a nice thick cream that goes along way, so you really only need a little bit and it goes into the skin quiet quickly leaving nothing behind and nothing on the clothes. It left my 5 month old's skin feeling so soft and supple just like a babies skin should be. I was also impressed with how quickly it helped all the dry bit's of skin she had disappear, I had only been using it for 3 days when I noticed that I was using less of the product because the skin was not dried out and flaking.. I'm so impressed I WILL be buying this product when I run out..
This cream comes out thick & smooth and rubs into babies skin so easily. My daughter has dry peeling skin on her back and this soothed it and made it smooth after only a few uses. It absorbs really well and has a clean, fresh smell - just how a bub should smell! It doesnt leave a greasy feel to babies skin and also doesnt stain clothes.
After using this product for 4 days with my 6 month old, her skin cleared up beautifully. Even the bits that were red and sore looking in the folds around her neck and knees looks better.
The cream is thick and a little goes a long way, plus it's helping to clear up the eczema on my hands. I would totally recommend this. I'm going to buy some for the nappy bag, just in case I'm not home to apply it after her bath.
I have been using Aveeno Soothing Relief Cream on my 20 mth old daughter's skin which has been affected by eczema. Thankfully, after only a couple of days of using it, most of the eczema has cleared up and she is a lot more comfortable. Strongly recommend it!
