I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Weleda. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation. #WeledaBabyLove
As a first time mom, it is easy to get overwhelmed by the many choices of products out there. When it came to putting products on my baby’s delicate skin, I knew I did not want anything with harsh chemicals that could irritate it even further. Luckily, Livia has not had any major diaper rash flare-ups (knock on wood), but does get occasional redness that doesn’t seem to be helped by the big name brand creams. I hated putting those chemicals on her, especially if they weren’t evening soothing her redness.
Thankfully, I found the Calendula Diaper Rash Cream from Weleda. It is their best-selling product, and winner of the Parent Tested Parent Approved award. Weleda products were created with help of German midwives to ensure they are safe and natural, and are even gentle enough for newborn skin and cloth diapers.
When I saw that the Calendula cream was made with all organic materials, including calendula extract to soothe redness and inflammation, I definitely wanted to test it out! The first time I put it on her, I could immediately tell a difference in the texture. The fair-trade beeswax makes it go on silky and smooth, rather than thick and globby (totally a word, right? You know what I mean!), and also offers a more breathable layer of protection.
After just a few uses, I started to notice a difference in her skin! She no longer had the constant redness from before, and her skin felt cleaner and smoother than when using other creams. I also like how there is no cream residue left behind that needs to be cleaned off before applying again. Now that her redness is finally under control, I only need to apply the cream once in the evening before bed to keep her skin soothed and clear. This product seriously works, and also has a nice, fresh scent from the flowers grown in Weleda’s own byodynamic gardens. You will definitely want to check out this product! Weleda is giving away 15 prize packs of their products, a $70 value, to my readers! Enter below. Good luck!
