Natural Baby Bottom Balm - A Review* CONTAINER: The Balm comes in a tube container similar to lip balm/chapstick. The top screws off. It is slightly more child-proof than the other containers I've tried, which I like, as my 3-year old likes to diaper all her animal friends. What I like best, though, is that I don't have to stick my fingers in the balm. I screw open the base of the tube, and apply the balm directly on baby's bottom. It's like painting. The tube can be tossed in a diaper bag or purse very easily.
* CONSISTENCY: The Balm glides on smoothly, much like a beeswax-based lip balm/chapstick. It coats the skin in a similar way. It doesn't blend in and disappear into the skin like a creamy lotion, nor is it thick and sticky like those zinc oxide creams. The Balm leaves a nice layer of oil on the skin and really protects it from touching the pee-pee and poo-poo. This skin protection is what I was looking for... at night, when I know I won't want to wake up to change a diaper... and when I leave DD2 with DH or drop DD2 off at daycare, in case she isn't changed as fast as I might like. ... When I have failed to change her fast, I've put the balm over her pink spots, and they heal very fast because they are not exposed to more pee and poop ... and because the balm has many healing ingredients.
* ALL NATURAL INGREDIENTS/SCENT: The Balm is made of all natural ingredients: oils, beeswax, and extracts. Combined, they create the scent of the product. This scent is mild to moderate in strength and pleasant. .. I personally would prefer an unscented product, but I haven't found one that I like as much as this Bottom Balm.
