Little Green Provides Natural Skincare for Sensitive Skin

LittleGreenBalm

If you are looking for made in the USA skincare products that are natural and suitable for people with sensitive skin, the Little Green brand is a great choice.

Little Green products are marketed as being for babies and children, but they’d be perfectly fine to swipe for your own use if needed. Little Green makes body wash, lotion, and hair detangler. My personal favorite product, however, is their soothing balm.

The soothing balm is designed for cheeks, lips, and small dry patches on the skin. It looks like a very large tube of lip balm. (My son actually called it a glue stick when I gave it to him!)

The balm is made with natural ingredients like beeswax, jojoba oil, avocado oil, and evening primrose. It has no parabens or allergens. While the Little Green body lotion has a light citrusy fragrance, I don’t notice any sort of scent in the Little Green balm.

I like that the balm is lightweight and doesn’t feel greasy on the skin. It’s a nice size to throw in your purse or diaper bag. I’ve found that applying moisturizing products throughout the day is the best way to keep my son’s dry skin under control, so the portability of the Little Green balm is a major selling point for me.

Kiss My Face Shower Gels Use Aromatherapy to Soothe and Invigorate

KissMyFaceEarlyToBed

Did you ever notice how taking a shower is like a mini-vacation once you become a mom? I love taking a nice long shower because it’s the one time of day I’m guaranteed to get some peace and quiet!

If you’re looking for a few new products to add to your shower routine, the new aromatherapy shower gels from Kiss My Face let you make the most of every minute spent in the shower.

The Kiss My Face Early To Bed Shower Gel is designed to be used at night time to help calm and relax you. It includes clove, chamomile, jasmine, lavender, neroli, and ylang ylang essential oils.

The Kiss My Face Early To Rise Shower Gel is for those of you who prefer a morning shower and need something to help perk you up a bit. It includes bay, basil, eucalyptus, juniper, lemon, lemongrass, grapefruit, peppermint, spearmint, and wintergreen botanicals.

Both shower gel varieties are made with olive oil, aloe, and vitamin E oil to provide a great natural moisturizer suitable for all skin types. The shower gels, like other Kiss My Face products, are gluten free, phthalate free, paraben free, biodegradable, vegan friendly, and made without animal testing.

I’m a big fan of aromatherapy in general, so I really like both of these shower gels. They have a rich lather and the olive oil helps moisturize your skin during the harsh winter months.

The Early to Bed Shower Gel is great for helping you unwind at the end of a long day. It’s like a more sophisticated version of the various lavender scented baby bath products intended to help calm your little one at nighttime.

The Early to Rise Shower Gel is also pretty effective, but it has a strong enough scent that it can interfere with other body products you’re wearing. I ended up switching to a citrusy perfume on the days I use the Early to Rise Shower Gel because the combination of the shower gel and my floral body spray was unpleasant.checkprice

Aveeno Stress Relief Lotion Has All the Advantages of the Regular Version Plus a Delightful Fragrance

AveenoStressReliefLotion

Warning: Only use this in the evenings because the scent will lull you into a fantastic, relaxed state that will inevitably end in sleep, and you don’t want that to happen at your desk. I guess if you’re incredibly stressed out, this might lower you down to a level where you can function more easily without face-planting on the keyboard.

Right now, I’m trying to finish up some work after slathering this lotion all over my legs and hands, and it’s getting tougher to concentrate. I didn’t start out stressed; I just started out itchy. It’s good for that, too.

This version of the Aveeno lotion so many of us with chronically dry or dehydrated and sensitive skin have come to know and love is quite the improvement. The regular Aveeno has “no” scent that’s actually a faint, slightly unpleasant smell.

This one has a mix of lavender, ylang-ylang, and chamomile that I can only describe as divine. It’s a sweet, floral type of scent rather than the masculine, herbal type some lavender products tend to take on. The moisturizing and itch-relief capabilities are the same as they are with the regular Aveeno lotion. I got almost instant relief. There’s still colloidal oatmeal, just like there is in the original, and the consistency feels about the same.

If you struggle with eczema or just relentlessly dry, itchy skin, you’ll soon find that this is worth every penny (you’ll probably say the same if you’re stressed or often have trouble sleeping, too).

If you’re familiar with that intense stinging sensation that happens when you put other lotions on dry, irritated or chapped skin, you’ll want to try this. I can only speak from my own experiences, but the stinging—when there is stinging—is much less intense and lasts a lot less time with Aveeno lotions. I use this on my daughter, who was “lucky” enough to get skin like mine (we hate winter), and she loves it.checkprice
