Protect Delicate Skin with Aveeno This Summer!


I was introduced to Aveeno products when Sophie was about six months old.  We were using the standard baby shampoo/body wash, but her poor skin was reacting to everything from the detergent that we used to the soap for her skin. My mother-in-law suggested that we give Aveeno Baby Wash & Shampoo a try, and it was the only product that was gentle enough to use every day with her and not cause her skin to break out.


We continued to use the Baby Wash & Shampoo with Bella when she was born, since her skin is even more sensitive than Sophie’s!  Every now and again we try another body wash or shampoo product, but within days we always come back to the Aveeno.  The Baby Wash & Shampoo is gentle, lathers well and rinses clean the first time – no need to rinse over and over again!  The girls both have thick hair, and the shampoo rinses out easily, which is wonderful since my girls do not like to have their hair washed.


Since we foster babies of many different races, we have found that Aveeno is the best wash to use for all our babies.  The calming lotion is a fantastic way to add moisture to baby’s tender skin.  Our current placement Baby J loves the Calming Lotion and giggles as soon as I hold up the bottle!

Another way we use Aveeno is to add bubbles to the bathtub! Aveeno doesn’t make a bubble bath, but by pouring a capful of the Body Wash into the bathtub while the faucet is running you can create a tubful of bubbles sure to delight your little ones!


My favorite Aveeno product is the sunscreen.  Hands down, it’s the best formula I’ve found – and with fair skinned little ones as well as myself I have tried most sunscreens out there.  The lotion goes on creamy, absorbs quickly into the skin and leaves no residue or smell.  We’ve tested the sunscreen playing in the yard, going on bike rides, swimming in the pool and at Sesame Place – and we have had no sunburn so far this summer!  What I really love about this sunscreen is that it doesn’t burn if it gets into your eyes – something that we have had trouble with in the past.





I can’t recommend Aveeno enough – there is a product for everyone and every skin type!  While I was provided with baby products for this review, I have used the Aveeno foaming cleanser, facial lotion and calming skin lotion for years with excellent results!

    It’s so nice to hear about products for sensitive skin! My youngest son has very sensitive skin and it’s hard to know what will work well for him before we try it. I’ve heard a lot of good things about Aveeno and I know we will give it a try. :)

  2. Janet W. says:

    Yes, we have! Our favorite is the Aveeno baby sunscreen! It’s great on my grandson’s sensitive skin.

  3. Colleen Maurina says:

    I have tried their adult products but not the baby products as yet.

  4. We are a. Family of 5 now, 1 off to college, we all use Aveeno products for more than a decade.

  5. I was considering fostering, Can you point me in the right direction of how you go about doing that? Was there information nights? How did you get started? :)

  7. Robin Wilson says:

    I have not had the pleasure of trying any of their baby products yet. I would love to win this for a lady at our church who is expecting. I do use Aveeno products on myself every day and I love them, so I can only imagine how good these are!

  8. We love the lotion!! It’s wonderful.

  9. I haven’t tried the baby products but I have tried their moisturizer for myself & really enjoyed it!

  10. Christy Anderson says:

    I’ve tried Aveeno Sunscreen products, but not the baby products.

  11. I’ve used Aveeno lotion before – never the baby products

  12. I love Aveeno – a doctor prescribed their original soap for my skin problems back when I was in middle school xx years ago – so I’ve enjoyed watching their product line grow while maintaining that quality over the years!

  13. I never knew they made sunscreen–nice to know!

  14. Thanks for the review! I’ve never used any Aveeno products, but I might give them a try.

    I love Aveeno, i have eczema and the only thing that helps is the Aveeno lotion.

  20. Barbara Bradford says:

    I have been hunting for a good sunscreen for myself. Most are directed at children and I need one that will last me when I work in the garden.

  21. Christian Alejandro says:

    It’s definitely important to watch out for the sun!!

  22. I use Aveeno products. We have sensitive skin and love their lotions and hair products.

    My oldest daughter has used this many times for my grandchildren

  24. I love Aveeno products. Both my kids have very sensitive skin and it is one of the few lotions and soaps that they can use.

  25. The first time I used Aveeno was when my son had a reaction from eating tomatoes . He was full of hives and bumps. THis is what they suggested – the oatmeal bath. I like now that they have lots of products for the babies now too. thanks for the info
