I received product for the purpose of this review. However, all the information and comments are my own.
A few months ago my beautiful little girl's perfectly peach and unmarked skin became red, whelped and dry all over her poor little, chubby legs. Since she didn't complain and thinking she just had a reaction to being out in a field of bluebonnets (a spring Texas requirement), I let it go for more than a week without doing much than amp up her lotion use. It was only after her school became scared the condition may be contagious and it wasn't going away, I realized it might be eczema. But just in case, I needed to take her to the pediatrician.
Comfirmed by her pediatrician, we decided it was time to take her for a dip in an oatmeal bath and slather on the lotion. Why oatmeal? As a skin protectant active ingredient, oatmeal can help restore skin's normal pH and aid in the maintenance of skin's moisture barrier to prevent and protect dry skin.
Of course, that meant only one brand would do - Aveeno. Since both my husband and I had our own issues with eczema, we already were big fans of their products. But for our little girl we wondered if the treatments might be too intense for her tender skin.
The Aveeno Baby Eczema Therapy Care Kit is a two-step regimen formulated with colloidal oatmeal to help soothe eczema-prone skin. Eczema Therapy Bath Treatment gently cleanses and relieves irritation due to eczema. The convenient kit helps to improve the four symptoms of eczema—itchiness, dryness, irritation and rough skin. When dispersed in water, the hypoallergenic powder forms a tear-free milky bath that soothes as it naturally cleanses without soap. After bathing, baby's skin is softer and smoother, and dry, irritated, sensitive skin is relieved.
While I loved that there was a kit including the lotion and treatment, I still needed a wash to clean her body when we didn't have time for a bath. Thankfully there was a solution for that too...the Aveeno Baby Cleansing Theraphy Moisturizing Wash. awarded the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance. Best of all everything we needed was purchased at our local grocery store, didn't need a prescription and didn't break the bank.
And neither will you with this special giveaway from Aveeno!
