I care a lot about the health of my own skin. My skin has changed so much since having a child, and I am having to be extra careful about what types of products I use. It's no surprise that my own little man has a few skin sentitivities, as well, and even at his young age, deals with dry patches and some allergies to animal dander, which make his skin very itchy at times. We tend to use products from brands we know and trust, because I can pretty much bet that he won't have any type of reaction to the products we've used over the past three years. We were recently given the opportunity to try out a new Health and Skin Care line of products from on of our favorite brands here at MBP, and I couldn't turn it down, based on the accolades given by our very own Sr. Contributor, Steph.
Daddy & Co. (formerly Daddy Scrubs), Founded by a daddy himself, Robert Nickell, Daddy and Co. came about in 2009. Robert has already fathered four children, over 20 years ago, with his first wife, and then remarried in 2007- and discovered he was going to be a daddy again in 2009! Daddy & Co. began with Robert's idea to have dedicated scrubs for dads to wearing during labor and delivery, which would help differetiate between who the daddy was and who the doctor was. Today, Daddy & Co. proudly offers gifts for dads, including everything from Daddy Scrubs to diaper bags for dads, and more!
Steph has had the pleasure of working with Daddy & Co. numerous times, and you can see some of her previous Daddy & Co. reviews, here:
I now have the pleasure of working with Daddy & Co. for the very first time, and am pleased to tell you about their brand new line of products, Daddy's Health & Skin Care. I was sent a package of three products, including Daddy's Baby Shampoo & Body Wash, Daddy's Baby Lotion, and Daddy's Baby Bubble Bath. Even though my baby is no longer a baby, we still use baby shampoo and wash with him, due to his sensitive skin.
What a beautiful line-up! Each product comes packaged in an 8 oz. bottle.
I like that these products are a substantial size. I hate spending a ton of money on baby/children's health and skin care products that are itty bitty in size. I could see the actual product through the plastic of the product bottles/tubes, which I also loved. I like to know what I'm about to put onto my child's skin beforehand.
Perhaps the greatest thing about these products, is that they are Paraben & Sulfate Free, Hypoallergenic, and Free of Dyes. All but one of the products I receive for review, are also free of fragrance.
Pharmacist recommended, and daddy approved- fragrance free lotion.
I was interested in trying out the lotion. B tends to have dry spots on his arms and legs, so it's part of our routine for him to have a little rub down with a lotion on his arms and legs after his shower or bath. I wanted to test the lotion on my own skin first, so I squeezed a tiny bit into my hand for testing. I noticed that the lotion while thick, wasn't super duper thick, and it was very light. It was easy to distribute, and didn't leave my skin looking or feeling greasy.
Daddy's Fragrance Free Baby Lotion
B really loves this lotion, and I wish it had been around when he was a baby. I know that many of us sort of scoff at all of those diaper changes we endured, but for me, those were some of my favorite times from B's baby days... I loved massaging his little baby skin with a gentle lotion, and singing and playing fun games while doing it. Such a sweet, special time for us.
This lotion is available for $12.95, and is also available in a Calming Lavender scent, which is great to use after bath time, right before bed time!
Baby Shampoo & Body Wash
B was also excited to use the Daddy's Baby Shampoo and Body Wash. We still use a 2-in-1 shampoo and body wash with B, so this fit right in with our normal routine. B's hair is super long, because he has a phobia of having his hair cut, so we have to wash his hair every day, and it's not always a fun process. When we told him that he had a new shampoo to try out, he was excited, and begged to get into the bath! The shampoo and body wash was a nice, thick formula with just the right amount of lather. I didn't have to use a ton of it to get all of B's wild man hair into mix, or to wash his body with. He never once complained about it bothering him in any way, which is great news! The body wash we tried was fragrance free, and left his hair and skin feeling nice and soft after being cleaned and rinsed.
The Shampoo & Body Wash is available for $12.95, and is also available in a Calming Lavender scent.
Last but not least, we were most excited to try out the Daddy's Bubble Bath, which was in the Calming Lavender scent. I stopped using scented bubble bath with B a long time ago, because I noticed that he was breaking out in little red splotches after his bath. When we told him the he had new bubble bath to try out, he was over the moon excited. One of his favorite weekly rituals is to take a nice, long bath at grandma's house while he and his daddy are over there on Monday nights (that's mommy's night to stay home and work late). Grandma's tub is the best in the world, and onlt at grandma's house can you splash as if you were in a big pool.
Bubble bath time! Happy little guy!
The Daddy's Bubble Bath made a whole bunch of fluffy bubbles to play in during B's bath, and smelled wonderful! The lavender scent has been shown to cause a sense of calm in babies and young children, and when Sacha and B got home later that evening, B had fallen asleep in the car, which very rarely happens. He must have been super relaxed after his bath. I'm also happy to report that B experienced zero irritation with his skin, after using this bubble bath, which makes me so happy, because that means we can continue to use it!
Look at all of those suds!
The Daddy's Bubble Bath is available for $12.95, and is also available in Fragrance Free, if the Calming Lavender isn't for you.
