Pros: Makes skin silky smooth
Cons: Need a light touch when applying
I got a free sample of this product in a coupon mailing from Huggies in the middle of a sweltering summer. My boys (3 & 1.5) were both still in diapers and both starting to suffer a bit of heat rash. I felt exactly the same way in the creases behind my knees!
So, we tried our free sample one morning, first on the boys bottoms, and on the backs of my legs. There was more than enough to go around, thank goodness, because this stuff is fantastic!
The product squirts out of the tube like a lotion, and you rub in onto the skin. I find I like a really light touch, because it dries very quickly, leaving your hands a little powdery feeling. I use quite a bit on the inner thighs and the bare bottom, as that's where they get heat rashes.
The product dries to a light, powder finish, that is not very noticeable on the skin. It is a bit like invisible deodorant, if you use too much, you will see it. We use it about every other or third diaper change, depending on the heat of the day. On my adult person, I find one application lasts a full work day.
I like this product because it is non-staining, even on dark items. It will show up on dark colors, but washes off in the machine, thus no stains. I also like that I can use powder on the kids without worrying they might inhale the fine particles. It has a very pleasant scent, not strong enough to irritate already sensitive skin. Your kids end up smelling like freshly washed kids, not floral gardens.
I also love this product for my overheated skin too. Anywhere a person might have skin rubbing together, this makes the skin feel like it is touching silk, instead of another hot, sweaty, body part. That silky feeling alone is enough to recommend this product. The fact that it is really great for kids keeps it in our baby room.
