If there is one thing I hate more than a diaper rash, it’s a diaper rash cream that doesn’t work. You’ve gunked up your hands, smeared cream all over your poor baby’s rashed up tush, and when you open that diaper the next go-around, you’re met with a gooey, pasty mess, and a rash that isn’t gone. None of those things spark the joy I’m supposed to be finding in my motherhood journey.
If I’m honest, I’m probably a little slack on the diaper changes - third kid, late to the potty training game, and I’m kind of just over diapers. And this kid, of course, is the one with the sensitive skin. He rashes up so easily, whether it’s from excess moisture, or too much acidity in whatever he’s eaten. It seems like we go through diaper creams faster than I can buy them, and we’ve tried more than I’m willing to admit. Some of them work, but the ingredients list makes me cringe. Some of them don’t work at all. And some of them just get opened and smeared into my carpets, because kids are always full of great ideas.
The Beauty from Bees Baby Bum Cream is all of the things that I love, and none of the things I don’t. It’s simple, natural, washes off easily, and it actually works. For real. Filled with skin-soothing ingredients, and nothing that doesn’t need to be there, this cream gets those rashes healed up in record speed, without staining your clothing and carpets with that pasty, white goop. You don’t need much of this cream to get the job done, and I’ve found it to be SO effective for all kinds of skin issues. My kids think it’s hilarious that I use diaper cream on my eyelid eczema, but I’m not even sorry. It works.
Biggest pet peeve about most diaper creams? The overpowering scent of “My baby has a diaper rash.” You can sniff it out from a mile away, and it lingers on everything you touch. This cream? Unscented. Like, actually unscented. Not just that weird unscented scent. Clear up that diaper-zone without the whole world knowing you’re doing it.
