My daughter has eczema and finding good skin care products for her has proven to be difficult. Sometimes her skin gets so bad that she has to use steroid-based creams. Usually these creams include cortisone or other steroids, which thin the skin over time. When Isabella turned two, we were happy that she was prescribed newer non-steroid creams, such as Protopic and Elidel.
Recently both of these creams have been linked to a possible risk of cancer. We had been using them with Isabella for five years! Luckily now when she has gotten a little bit older, and also after we moved to a very dry mountain climate, her skin has gotten much easier to take care of. But she still gets the occasional flare ups.
We used Aveeno for years, since we moved so often, and it was one of those only lotions we could find almost anywhere and worked somewhat well. Well, it worked in that sense that the skin didn’t get worse, but never really took the dryness away.
When The Body Shop introduced it’s hemp series, we gave it a try. Same with their Aloe, which was supposed to be their line for sensitive skin. The Body Shop Aloe vera didn’t really do anything for Isabella, but she really liked the hemp products. Her skin got softer and it even cured some flare ups. There was just one minus… the smell.
The hemp line works really well, but it’s ingredient natural hemp seed oil does have a very distinctive aroma. And to be honest, not one of my favorite ones. And unfortunately there are not many scented lines out there that work for children’s eczema.
Thanks to Mama Speaks review site, where I am honored to write, we received some amazing skin care products we hadn’t heard of before.
Noodle & Boo products received such a warm welcome in our house. Luxurious, good smelling, soft.. even the packaging made my daughter to feel like she was a princess.
Noodle & Boo is a safe and gentle skin care line to be used for children even with the most sensitive skins. In addition to their signature sweet cream lotions, their product line also offers shampoos, soaps and sun lotions.
My daughter now keeps walking around the house saying ”touch my skin”, she is so proud of her soft skin. She keeps sniffing her arm, and is in the seventh heaven because the lotion smells so good. Also, Isabella feels that finally putting on lotion is luxurious, not just something she has to do because of her skin condition.
This is the first ever scented series of skin care products she has been able to use! Her skin is so soft and the rash is healing. Seeing my daughter happy and her skin healthy is priceless – but I’m glad to know I can get more of this good stuff for a very reasonable price.
One extra reason why we love Noodle & Boo – they donate 20% of the proceeds to children’s charities. This luxurious skin care line is making a difference in children’s lives in more ways than one.
