What are your favorite skin care products for mom or baby?

We just tried some products from honest company, and I'm a convert

The shampoo/body wash smells SOOOO good. It has a light, clean scent, but it still has a scent (I love scented LOL) It's tangerine and vanilla. I tried it on my son and it goes his hair SO clean and his hair STAYED smelling clean between washes (this never happens for some reason with other washes we have used...). I've also been using the "healing balm" which I guess is intended as a diaper rash, but I've used it on my nipples (they are dry lately for some reason) on my lips as a chapstick, and on my daughter's chapped skin under her nose from a cold. Works really well! I even used it under my own nose, and no skin reaction! (I ALWAYS break out when I put moisturizer of any kind on my face). I want to try their face and body lotion, but I'm still nervous about trying a new lotion on my face due to my history, but if I try I'll update on how that goes. I do wish their face/body lotion was scented, though, to match the body wash!

I am sooo sensitive to scented things! There are very few scented products that do not bother me. I just find them overpowering and yucky, mostly. Even if it is essential oil based but still too strong. So I go for mostly fragrance free stuff. But some brands don't bother me. I am one of those people in the store opening all the bottles and sniffing them lol.

I am not very brand loyal. I tend to just get some random, non yucky smelling thing from the crunchy natural grocery store when I need a new item. Or if I am having a serious problem I get a mainstream drugstore brand- like I was having disgusting dandruff after I got pregnant so I got Head & Shoulders.

My current favorite products are Weleda calendula diaper cream and sea buckthorn body wash; moroccan argan oil for my hair (dry and curly/frizzy) and face, it's fantastic and a great sustainable natural product; aaaand my Head & Shoulders seriously, it totally fixed my dandruff and I love it right now!

Me too, but obviously for a different reason! I LOVE scents but I'm so picky! I also use the moroccan argan oil for my hair! I'd be afraid to try it on my face but now I'm afraid to put anything on my face. There's only be ONE face lotion I haven't had a bad reaction to yet (I've tried tons of "gentle/sensitive skin/etc" ones) and oddly the one that doesn't bother me wasn't made for sensitive skin haha
