Keeping your baby moisturized becomes even more important during the dry, itchy Winter months, but finding a favorite baby lotion can take a lot of trial and error. We've done some leg- (and belly-, back-, and arm-) work and come up with our favorite five moisturizers just for little ones. BabyGanics Extra Gentle Daily Lotion ($20 for two) has a subtle fragrance and absorbs beautifully. We love the sweet scent, nongreasy feel, and cute packaging of Aden + Anais's Mum + Bub Ultra-Gentle Lotion ($16) so much that we've been known to use it ourselves. Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Moisture Cream ($10) is an affordable drug-store classic that we return to again and again because of its great thick but not-greasy texture. Burt's Bees Fragrance-Free Baby Lotion ($21 for two) is wonderfully thick and lush, making for some long-lasting moisture. And Weleda Calendula Baby Lotion ($16) is perfect for delicate skin with its blend of organic and natural plant extracts. Do you have a favorite among our picks? Or did we miss your go-to baby lotion? Weigh in below.
To help raise awareness for the Safe Cosmetics Act of 2010, natural skin care brand Weleda has teamed up with The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and has been taking this adorable biodiesel truck around the US and Canada. I stopped by when it arrived in San Francisco, and if you can catch it when it comes through LA Nov. 5-7, you can snag free samples and a minispa service. If you aren't an Angeleno but you're still interested in learning more about the project, you can also take their Natural Beauty Facebook Quiz and check out their Honestly Natural, Truly Beautiful campaign website.
