A few weeks ago, I received some really great skin care products from Episencial and Mommy Parties to try out. They arrived at the perfect time, because here in the desert, as the air gets colder, it also gets even drier than in the hot summer months, if you can believe that! My boys both look like they have alligator skin right now, but I have to be really careful about what I use on Little Man because his skin is super sensitive.
Episencial makes several all natural skin care products specially formulated for babies and kids (but adults can use them too!). Free from the bad stuff like parabens, phthalates and fragrances, Episencial products are loaded with all-natural goodness and healthy organics. All of the formulas are safe for newborns and actually contain an exclusive "skin immune complex" to help the boost the skin's immune functions.
I got together with some friends and we tested some of the lotions on some of the toddlers in the group:
We used the Better Body Butter and everybody really loved the feel and smell of it, it wasn't oily at all.
Melisa was happy to get the Nurturing Balm for her 3 month old baby girl to help keep the diaper rash under control and the "Kristys"( two of my neighbors are good friends who live next to each other...both named Kristy!) were both excited about the Playful Foaming Wash.
My camera had a meltdown, so couldn't take any more pics, but all of the guests received gift bags full of samples so they can try out several Episencial products. I came home after the party and used the Soothing Cream on Little Man who always struggles with a bit of eczema behind his knees and on his arms. He usually hates using lotion on those spots, because it either burns or feels greasy and iscky to him. To his and my delight, he felt no burning or irritation and he said the itching started to go away pretty quickly. Yay! Something that actually works for him!
It was a fun to get together and I want to thank Episencial and Mommy Parties for letting us try out their new line of all natural, organic skin care products for little ones. We love what we have tried so far!
