Beeyoutiful Baby Body Lotion

PhotobucketThe TOS Crew once again has received a product that is not DIRECTLY homeschool related, but IS related to teaching our children about healthy living, and living with a more "Natural" and "holistic" outlook.

The crew received a wide variety of products from immune system stimulators to more typical "health and beauty" products like lotions, cleansers, soaps, and hair sprays.  Be sure to visit the CREW page if these are products that interest you, to find out more about each one.

I received the Baby Body Lotion, which is paraben and formaldehyde free, scented with Lavender and Chamomile.

The lotion itself is light and soaks in rather nicely. I thought I would be very happy with the scent, since I am a fan of Lavender, and use Lavender essential oils, and natural lavender products on a regular basis. However,  this (could be a particular batch?) lotion's scent was overpowering to my sensitive nose. There was also a "Tone" that I, personally, didn't care for (Could be the chamomile, I'm not sure. I know I don't like Chamomile Tea, so it could be that Chamomile is the scent my nose objects to....??).

I wanted to get some other opinions, as I am known to have an ultra sensitive nose, so I brought the lotion to our last homeschool support group meeting, and asked the opinions of a number of the moms there. Their reactions:
  • Somewhat overpowering
  • Smells like laundry detergent or cleaner
  • Too strong for a baby
  • Makes my eyes water
  • Nice "Feel", but not a baby scent
  • No one else had the same "tone" reaction, so that must be a quirk of my nose
My thought is that perhaps I had a slightly "off" bottle, or that the recipe could use a little "tweaking" to be more baby-friendly(less strong scent), but that overall, the lotion itself is a very pleasant product.

The Baby Bee Lotion sells for $13 for a 6 oz bottle. If you are a fan of Lavender, you may wish to check it out yourself. (If you're local, just ask me, and I'll gladly let you try a sample! :D )

As always, I hope that this review will help you decide where to best spend your budget.
