At a visit to the doctor's office sometime last year, I was given tons of samples for Boudreaux's Butt Paste. I laughed at the name. It's actually kind of funny!
The product itself is really good. Plus, I felt comforted in knowing that it was recommended by Little One's doctor. I figured that they wouldn't be giving Boudreaux's Butt Paste to their youngest patients if they didn't believe in the product. Right?
Boudreaux's Butt Paste is brought to you by the people at Blairex Laboratories.
Helps treat and prevent diaper rash
"Boudreaux's Butt Paste® was specifically formulated by a pharmacist with direction from a respected pediatrician to provide effective diaper rash care." (from the company's website)I was given one of each product in the Boudreaux's Butt Paste line to try out and review for my readers.
Boudreaux's Rash Protector
Contains Peruvian Balsam for healthy skin and goes on easily. The way the container is designed, you can apply the product on your baby's tushy from any angle (even upside down). If you're like me and have to sometimes wrestle with a wiggly toddler who tries to "help" you change a dirty diaper, having a product that is easy to apply is key! The Rash Protector also helps seal out wetness and acts like a barrier. I really like this product.
Boudreaux's Baby Butt Smooth Dry Skin Ointment
Also contains Peruvian Balsam to keep baby's skin healthy, moisturized, and soft. This product is good to use every day and after bathing baby. The thing I like about these products is that there is no strong fragrance. It actually smells good, without being overpowering.
Boudreaux’s Baby Butt Bath™ Moisturizing Body Wash & Shampoo
Gentle enough to use on infants and children. The non-irritating formula restores moisture to baby's skin from bathing.
I'm always a bit apprehensive about trying new products on Little One because she has such sensitive skin. She reacts to certain products if they contain fragrances. I have to say that she did not react to the body wash and shampoo. I was relieved that it is tear-free, non-irritating, PH-balanced, and that it soothes the skin. With Little One, I am very careful with skin care products. She gets bumps on her arms and face when something doesn't agree with her.
Boudreaux's Baby Kisses Infant & Kid Lip and Cheek MoisturizerI have to say that this is by far the coolest of the products! I really like the idea of having a lip and cheek moisturizer especially for little ones. It was created especially for infants and kids, without the use of unnecessary additives. Little One thought it was fun to have her own lip moisturizer. She sees Mom put on lip gloss and thinks this is the same thing. The first time, however, she tried to EAT it!
Boudreaux's Butt Paste
Of course, I couldn't write a review for Boudreaux's Butt Paste without writing about the butt paste! As I mentioned earlier, I had discovered Boudreaux's Butt Paste at one of Little One's doctor's appointments. I was given samples of the butt paste to use on her, and my initial reaction was, "Whoa! This is not like the regular zinc cream I use on her butt!"
This butt paste is sort of grey in colour and looks kind of...pasty. The fragrance is actually very pleasant and to my surprise, Boudreaux's Butt Paste really did the job and did it well! It is very gentle on the skin and it does not irritate the skin. It also lasts longer! With other creams I have used in the past, the cream just disappears soon after it is applied. Boudreaux's Butt Paste goes on nicely, and stays on...which is a good thing! The funny thing is that even though the paste stays on when you need it to, it comes off easily! Bonus!
Butt Paste contains zinc oxide and Peruvian Balsam, and comes in different sizes. I like the container/jar for home and the tube for travel. Actually, if I have to be completely honest, I'd have to say that I really, really prefer the tube over the jar/container, only because I worry about contamination and germs. Even if I was my hands before and after changing Little One's diaper, I kind of shudder at the thought of contaminating a product that is applied to her sensitive area (okay, her butt!).
I would definitely recommend this product and I have even given Boudreaux's Butt Paste to friends for baby showers or just "whenever". I might sound like a weirdo, but at Little One's first birthday, I put packages of Boudreaux's Butt Paste in the kids' loot bags! Most of the kids were the same age as Little One and were still in diapers. I figured Butt Paste was a better option than sweets (which I wouldn't give to my kid anyway)! Yes, I'm that mother! ;)
