    Default What natural skincare do you or baby use? Where do you buy it?

    I guess after you have a baby you start to pay even more attention to stuff like this, that you were meaning to do for years for yourself, but now it is even more important.
    I have been using the Gaia shampoo, bath soap and moisturizer for my 2 year old. (If I can plug Cheeky Monkey, that is where I bought it) I really like the effectiveness and the smell. It is fresh without being too perfumey, but still a soft fragrance. It is not too flowery for my son.
    For my 2 month old, I have been using the Weleda in a squeeze tube...basically because it is easier, and I can grab it in one hand. I like it also. I lathers well, but it does not have hardly any fragrance. (purchased at Quartermaster) It is slightly cheaper than the Gaia.
    Now, for myself.....using Mary Kay! But I think I am ready to start making some better choices for me too! Ideas?

    I'm still making these changes for our family, so ideas are welcome here too.

    I will be getting a 600g bar of pure castile soap later this month though.

    For Emillia, I use either Burt's Bees, or Aubreys.

    For me, I tried Natural Clean but it over dried my skin. Now I bought Jason's. I like it so far. For Face Stuff, I like Green Beaver, they are Canadian and all natural.

    I liked Burts Bees too, but my daughter had a reaction once to it (weird, after having used it for months - I guess something triggered her excema and then she had a bad reaction to the BB Lotion). I continue to use it on myself though. I loooove the smell. I bought it at Superstore. It's also found at Loblaws, Ungers, and some Shoppers.
