Unfortunately not for my baby
I was given this product from my best friend in a baby hamper she made up. From her own experience, she said it was the best product for her daughter when she was a baby. Unfortunately this was not the case for me. After using it 3 times, my daughter started to get flakey/dry/irritated skin which I figured couldn’t be from these products (also using body wash and shampoo) but then after reading the ingredients, I couldn’t believe that it has lactic acid in it considering that it is an exfoliator ingredient! What newborn baby requires lactic aci...d on their skin? I immediately stopped using it (along with other Gaia products) and it has taken a while to go back to normal. Now using another product WITHOUT lactic acid which has helped improve it. For a baby that had extremely good newborn skin, this product assisted in making it the complete opposite very quickly.
Left a horrible rash. Awful.
We used this product for the first time on our 5 week olds face, as it says it's safe to on the bottle, after his bath last night. He has woken up with a rash all over his face, one of his eye lids is so swollen he can hardly open it. Will definitely be warning my friends not to use this product. So upsetting
Terrible...Caused 5 month old baby to scream uncontrollably within seconds of putting it on
As I had run out of the usual products I use on the baby, I decided to use one of the Gaia baby moisturizer samples I got as part of my bounty bag. Tried it on baby for first time after a bath of water alone. 2 seconds after I applied it on her skin, she started to cry uncontrollably. Immediately rewashed the baby to remove this harsh cream and she was better. Will not be trying the other Gaia samples on the baby. In future will stick to qv baby bath oil and aveeno dermexa. I hope I have not damaged my baby's skin. Should have known better than to apply something with such a strong smell. Lesson learned, natural does not mean not harsh.
Terrible on sensitive skin.
I used this on my baby's face and she screamed. I tried it on my face and it stung! Not recommended. Especially if your baby is prone to eczema, this product will most likely make it worse. The fragrance is too strong. I will not be taking another risk on my baby and use any other Gaia product.
Odd smelling product
I received this as a gift when my son was born. I don't really like it and probably wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It has an odd, fake perfumed scent and feels very greasy and sticky on your hands once you have rubbed it into the baby's skin. I don't like smell that is left behind. Will never buy this.
Odd smell, greasy and sticky
Best baby toiletry range ever
We discovered Gaia when our son was a baby and was getting terrible rash from other products. I love that they are all natural, paraben/SLS free and gentle on skin. We have used this range for the last 3 years and will use it on our twins due in 2 weeks time.
Natural, smells like a beauty salon - amazing, cost effective.
Too heavily perfumed for a baby lotion
I purchased a bottle of this moisturiser for my 6 month old after a alternative-remedies friend of mine recommended it to me. Along with this I also purchased a bottle of the baby shampoo and a bottle of the talc-free powder. Admittedly, because of my friend's recommendation, I didn't even open the bottles to smell the product when I bought them. I was utterly disappointed then, when I opened them, to find that they were heavily perfumed - at least to me. I actually can't understand why you would perfume a baby product - wouldn't you prefer to...smell the natural scent of your baby? Of the three products I bought of Gaia, the only one which didn't have a heavy perfume was the talc-free powder. For the price (almost 10 dollars a product), I did not think they were worth it. I was extremely impressed, however, that the products are not tested on animals nor contain animal products. Cruelty free Too heavily perfumed, ordinary price
Had to buy another to use on myself!
I had a few recommendations for this cream from friends, and finally decided to pick some up for my daughter. We hadn't used many creams on her previously as she was quite sensitive, however this cream is wonderful on her skin. I use it under her chin because she has pretty awful dribble rash, and also on her back and tummy which have some dry patches. The other thing I use it for is to clean her hands after meals - a small squirt, rub her hands together then wipe with a washer. It stops her hands drying out.
The smell is subtle but really n...ice, and I have also been using it on my own (sensitive) skin, which is now soft and smooth as a baby's ..., well... you know! I haven't found many scented creams which haven't made me itch or given me a rash, so I'm impressed. It's $9ish for a small bottle, which compared to some of the hypo-allergenic stuff you can buy in larger bottles (QV for example) is a tad expensive, but it is a beautiful cream and worth it for something that smells pretty. The scent is beautiful, very gentle. A little bit expensive, only comes in small bottles.
I always disliked moisturising creams for bubs as they're generally so greasy. This one is not and it smells so good! I love giving my daughter a lovely massage with this cream after her bath. It's gentle on her dry skin and helps keep it lovely and soft. We live in a cold climate which can be quite harsh on skin but this cream helps a lot.
I also love that it's all natural.
Easily absorbed by the skin, great smell, doesn't irritate sensitive dry skin
Brilliant baby product!!
We use this moisturiser for our baby girl after each bath and it is such a fantastic product!! She already has beautiful skin and I think this product really helps maintain it for her because it is so gentle and hyrdating, but not too thick and it asborbs very easily. It has a subtle, natural fragrance and contains organic ingredients. It is so gentle and effective and you only need to use it sparingly, as this product really goes far. :) Gaia is a superior brand and we have not used anything else because the results are just amazing.
Environmentally friendly, good quality product and not too expensive.
Our baby has gorgeous skin!
We received our first bottle of this as a baby gift - our baby daughter now 10 weeks old has beautiful skin, everyone has commented about it. The moisteriser is well priced, good consistency - not oily like some & leaves her skin feeling really hydrated. She had dry legs at about week 3 & applying this to her body cleared it up well. (we also use the baby body & bath)
Good consistency & leaves baby's skin hydrated but not oily
Unable to get it from our Woolworths in rural town - have to get it posted to us.
I have been buying this for my kids for ages and started using it on myself as well as its cheaper than most of the natural moisturisers for adults. I absolutely love the smell of Gaia's products, the lavender in it is soothing for kids and great to put on them just before bedtime. My kids love it and ask for it every night after their shower. This is something I always have on hand.
This is an all natural moisturiser that absorbs quickly and really moisturises well without feeling greasy. The price is really good for a natural moisturiser as well.
I really enjoy using this product on my son and on myself. I use it all over - even on faces :-) and found that it was particularly gentle on easily irritated - or already irritated skin. We have a bottle at work for hands - and being a curly head it often ends up taming frizzies! Wouldn't be without this product, I have a tiny bottle I refill so I can keep it in my handbag and car!
great for sensitive skin, smells lovely, moiturises well without being greasy, perfect for all over, good on baby's bottom while in cloth nappies.
It does seem expensive bu believe me a little goes a long way!
Gaia has a nice range of products that you know are designed for babies with sensitive skin. I like the products for skincare and the moisturiser does the job it says. I wish that you could purchase this product in a larger tub as it will not last that long and ends up being a bit more expensive than other similar products. I like that it is an organic product and it does smell nice and is very easy to apply.
A nice organic product that smells nice and is easy to apply.
The price can work out a bit more expensive since you can't buy it in a bigger tub.
This is a beautiful moisturiser and smells divine. This is my favourite Gaia product by far and it leaves my bub's skin soft and smelling wonderful. Would highly recommend.
Natural ingredients, works well, smells beautiful.
Nothing - the price is marginally more expensive than other brands but not prohibitively so.
my overall opinion of Gaia natural Moisturiser is not only is it natural which i love but it actually makes a huge difference to my little girls skin using the tiniest bit of moisturiser.
i used this product when my child was a new born and it was great, it made her skin so silky soft and also a great relaxing smell, you also dont have to apply much of the moistureiser to her skin as it spreads alot which is good as it lasts longer.
i didnt find anything with this product that i did not like at all.
This is a great smooth moisturiser to treat any dry, irritated skin. It applies easy and you can get the travelling size to use anywhere, anytime. I love that it has a lavendar smell, love lavendar. All gaia products are great and do what they are suppose to.
This is great to treat dry, red or just irritated skin. Love the smell of the Gaia products.
