7 Baby Products Adults Can Use + Paypal Cash Giveaway

September 9, 2014
I've been reading a lot about how using most shampoos can be bad for your hair and strip it of its natural moisture.  This can lead to your scalp producing even more oil and causing your hair to look greasy, so I've been considering joining in on the No-Poo Shampoo movement.   Since there is some adjustment time with the No-Poo Movement where your hair can end up looking pretty rough, I thought that maybe I would just try to use a gentler kind of shampoo first.  That's when I thought of trying out Johnson's Baby Shampoo in Calming Lavender to see if it made a difference.  I've only been using it for a few days, but it made my hair a lot softer and slightly less greasy.  I think I need to use it for a longer period to see if it will make a big difference.  Ideally, I'd like to wash my hair every other day without my hair being oily on the sides in the morning of Day 2.  I already like this product so far because I find the smell of lavender appealing, but unfortunately most lavender scented perfume oils and lotions are just too overpowering for me.  Since this product is intended for babies, the scent is much lighter, which I personally found more pleasing.  Another plus about this baby shampoo is that it does have some alternate uses.  Before I bought this product for myself, I read some online reviews and found that this can be used as a mild detergent for washing delicate items.  It can also be used to clean makeup brushes and several people said they used it as a body wash, too.   


Using a baby product for my hair got me thinking about other baby products I might want to try.  In general, baby products are milder, made with more natural ingredients and are paraben-free, and are ideal if you have sensitive skin or certain allergies.  I did some searches on the internet and found six more baby products that I would like to try in addition to the Johnson's baby shampoo I just mentioned.

* SheaMoisture Raw Shea Chamomile + Argan Oil Baby Healing Lotion

This product came up in several of my searches,  and it sounds like it is a wonderful lotion to help repair skin and keep it moisturized.   The original formula was developed by a widowed mom in Sierra Leone who sold shea butter products as a way to help support her four children.  It's made with "natural and certified organic ingredients" in the USA and it's not tested on animals.  The chamomile is supposed to be soothing for irritated skin, while the Vitamin E packed Argan Oil helps skin stay soft. 

*Baby Bee Face & Hand Cloths

These are basically wet wipes, and I don't know about you, but I find it handy to have some of these in my purse.  The other day I got an Auntie Anne's cinnamon sugar pretzel and could have used something like this!  The reason why I'd chose this product over regular wet wipes is because these wipes use natural cloths.  Plus, the product does not contain methylisothiazolinone, which is a harmful preservative used in many baby wipes.  On the Burt's Bee's website these are on sale right now for $4.80 instead of the usual $6.00. 



* Neutrogena Pure & Free Baby Sunblock Stick SPF 60

This product contains pure sunscreen and is described as being very gentle.  I need extra SPF protection since I live in the South and also because I have very pale skin.  An SPF of 15 would never cut it for me since I'm prone to getting burns.  Made especially for the sensitive skin of babies, this hypoallergenic product could also be great for someone like my sister who tends to have an allergic reaction to most sunscreens.  I also like that it is in the form of a stick so that it is easier to apply.  It's a handy size to carry around in my purse for when I would need to re-apply during the day. 



* Johnson's Baby Oil

Baby Oil is a good way to moisturize adult skin, especially rough patches on elbows or on the soles of feet.  It's also really good for your cuticles, it can be used as a massage oil, and you can use this instead of shaving cream.  I found a blog post that lists 45 uses for baby oil if you're interested!






* Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Moisture Cream

According to the product description, this cream is "enriched with skin-soothing natural colloidal oatmeal, soy, and milk proteins to help restore lost moisture for the relief of dry skin associated with eczema."  I've had good luck with Aveeno creams before, especially in the winter since my skin gets pretty dry.  This product is supposed to last up to 24 hours and is fragrance-free. 



*Baby Bee Buttermilk Soap


This French-milled soap is on sale right now for $4.00 on the Burt's Bees website.  It's 99.9% natural, and the buttermilk in the soap is rich "in fats and emollients" for softer skin.  I don't know if I would use this soap on a baby because even though the ingredients are natural, it can still hurt a baby's eyes/it's not tear-free, so I actually think this product might be better for adults! 



Do you currently use any baby products?  If not, would you be interested in trying any?

  2. So many different options these days. The cloth wipes look like an easy to use option.

  3. Baby wipes are the best! I use them to help remove nail polish by applying the nail polish remover to the wipe and then wiping my nail! Comes off so easily! :)

  7. I use so many baby products still too. Even use them on the dog.

  8. Very clever theme! Now that I think of it, I do use baby oil sometimes and I definitely use baby wipes a LOT ... they're great for wiping off swatches or cleaning random things up, and cheaper than proper "makeup wipes" (which I still use, but y'know. When they go on sale.)

  9. Great giveaway. I use the Aveeno baby sunblock currently, because I have to use stuff that's super easy on the skin.

  10. Hi!
    Is this open internationally?
    Thank you!

  11. I love baby sunscreen for my face, it's so gentle on the skin. Thank you so much for the giveaway!

  12. This is a great list! I particularly love Shea Moisture's products so I know their baby lotion is probably awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love the idea of using baby products since they're so gentle. I've always taken children's medicine since it's easier on me and has fewer side effects. I've been using more natural products instead though recently for beauty items, and the Desert Essence line has been amazing.

  14. I use baby oil as an eye make up remover - its the most gentle!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I've definitely used baby shampoo for a few things, including washing makeup brushes. I occasionally get eczema on my eyelids (weird, I know) and my doctor recommended washing my eyelids in a certain direction with baby shampoo.

    I would have to try some of this.

  17. I feel like baby products have to be more moisturizing than some adult products! I could definitely see making the switch on a few things.

  18. Thanks for the giveaway!

  19. Aveeno Baby is fantastic. I have crazy sensitive skin so I use it when we happen to have some in the house (I have a 2 yr old bro). Plus it's great for when I have a new tattoo because it won't irritate the skin or bleed the ink!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Great giveaway. Baby wipes are the greatest thing ever - I carry some in my car even! And baby oil is a staple in my bathroom too!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I never realize how handy they are until I'm out of them!

    ReplyDelete
  22. That's a good tip! I'll have to try it instead of just using cotton balls.

    ReplyDelete
  23. What research did you read against it? I'm curious! By the way, I had a dream about your blog!! (Lol, please don't think I'm crazy.) In my dream I was reading your blog and you had written out four companies that would pay $50 per sponsored post and I remember thinking that you were awesome for sharing that info!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yeah, if I'm ever a mom it would be easier to just share products with my baby! I'm going to tell my sister to read this post because she is expecting!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Baby powder would have been a good one to include on here!

  26. As long as you have a Paypal account you can enter.

  27. LOL, never thought about using them on pets!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh yeah, if I can get away with using a baby wipe over a makeup wipe I will!

    ReplyDelete
  29. oh my gosh thats hilarious! I wish that dream was true! lol. I dont remember exactly what I read and where, but it was on a FB group and this girl was a hair stylist and she threw around lots of fancy words i didnt understand about PH and whatnot and I was like cool, not doing it. Though I have read a few people who have done it and love it, I just dont think its right for me and my hair!

  30. Gentle and a higher SPF= a plus in my book!

    ReplyDelete
  31. It is highly reviewed on every site I visited, which is always a good sign!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Come to think of it, I prefer the children's vitamins. The adult ones have made me sick in the past. I'll look into Desert Essence--thanks for suggesting!

    ReplyDelete
  33. And cheaper than buying regular eye makeup remover!

    ReplyDelete
  34. When I was looking at baby oil reviews someone else had written that they use it for their eyelids, too. LOL, when I went to the eye doctor she told me that I had "dirty eyelids." Say what?!?! I looked at her like she was crazy and she said, "It's hereditary." She recommended these special eye wipes, but now I'm considering using baby shampoo instead...It would be way cheaper!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I really want to try the Shea Moisture lotion!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'll keep that in mind if I ever get another tattoo. I'm hoping to get a cover up done!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yeah for his breed he has skin more like humans so it gets dried out and what not just like us. So I use the shampoo when I give him bathes he likes that it doesn't hurt his eyes.

    ReplyDelete
  38. When you think about it, why don't we use the baby products on our own skin? Gentler is better!! I really want to do No-Poo, but I'm worried about that not so pretty period as well!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I never leave the house without baby wipes they are great for so many things! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Oh yeah, I have a tendency to spill stuff so they always come in handy for me. Good luck!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm scared I'd go for a few days with greasy hair and then cave and wash it with regular shampoo. I need to do more research on it!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh, I should put some in my glove compartment just in case!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I always keep wipes in my purse and definitely can use baby oil, I sometimes use that instead of lotion.... The money wouldn't be bad either.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Yes! Do it! I have a problem where I wash my hair once a week already...so I guess I should just try it
