BabyLove here! I’m Meg’s younger sister and I have to be honest. I’m not super huge into makeup. I like it but I’m not obsessed with it. There is just not a lot of time for it in my life. I’m a 28 year old mother of two boys ages 3 and 1.
Both of my boys are highly allergic– foods and also common environmental airborne particles like dust, pet dander, pollen, grass, and probably AIR! Lucky Me! I don’t have time to do primer because I am too busy trying to keep my two little ones from breaking out in hives! This makes finding good products like washes, shampoos, and creams extremely difficult.
If it was difficult to find great “beauty products” for my children I thought it might be difficult for you too. I will be reviewing the best baby/kids products on the market for megsmakeup.com. I’ll be helping you make informed decisions about what you’re buying and whether it’s worth your money. If my kids can use it, then believe me-anyone’s can!
Over the last four weeks, I’ve been looking at every baby/kids skincare site known to man. I’ve found some really great stuff that I am excited to share with you. TADAH!! This brings me to our first ever Babylove subject..Erbaviva!
Erbaviva baby lip and cheek balm is their number one seller, and for a good reason, it works! Like I said my son, William (3 years old), is allergic to everything, as a result, he suffers from awful eczema. I am extremely careful with what products I put on his face, wash him in, and do his laundry with. His skin always seems rashy to me, even though I’m extremely diligent.
This product arrived on my doorstep the day the entire family (sorry Meg) arrived home from vacationing in Bermuda. It couldn’t have arrived at a better time. William loves to swim, and as a result of the salt water and nasty sun block, his poor little face was torn apart!
William applied the balm to his own face, and after two days of use, the improvement to his skin was considerable. It didn’t cause a breakout (to be honest I was expecting one since his skin is so sensitive), his skin and lips looked smooth and moist. The cracks and dry skin seemed to be much less visible.
This balm is packaged like plus-sized lip stick, which not only makes it easy for little hands to manipulate, but also easy for big hands to find it in their pocket book or baby bag. It definitely has an herbal, minty smell to it. If an earthy fragrance just isn’t your thing, you probably will not like the smell or taste of this stuff. I didn’t find the smell or taste to be overwhelming, William didn’t complain about it either-Hooray! When my husband kissed me goodnight that evening, he asked “What’s on your lips, it tastes good?!?”
Another plus? It’s nearly 100% organic, and has healing and soothing agents like calendula oil and rosemary extract. It’s great for treating already chapped areas like the cheeks, nose, and lips, and it’s also made for preventing them from getting that way. So go right ahead and use it freely, on the kiddos and on yourself.
Erbaviva provides a quality, eco friendly product, that’s reasonably priced and that will last for a long time. Their website is stock full of great products for baby and for mom to be. I recommend giving it a try!
