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.
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
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
