Organic Raw Shea Chamomile & Argan
Baby Line Incldues Wash, Oil, Lotion & Ointment
Available at Walgreens and Target
I received a package from SheaMoisture containing several new products to review. While I was excited about this body line on myself, I wanted to do an authentic review on a baby. The problem: my baby is 6 years old. So I spoke with my good friend Camille and asked if she would do the reviewing on her 1 year old son Jackson. She happily agreed to use only these products on Jackson for 1 week and report back.

Camille’s Thoughts: Good ingredients not harmful on babies skin. I liked that it was sulfate free but nervous as to whether it was tear free. The product lathered well and cleaned well no complaints.
My Thoughts: The product is well concentrated, reminds me of a thicker version of Dr. Bronners. It rinsed clean with no residue and was non-drying. I like the scent, smells light not too lingering. I used it just as a body wash, but I used it head to toe on my son and liked the results also, his hair was not overdried at all.
Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Baby Oil Rub (not pictured above)
8 oz for $9.99
ing: Sunflower seed oil, Shea butter, Sweet Almond oil, Jojoba oil, Evening Primrose oil, Castor Seed oil, Safflower oil, Coconut oil, Argan nut oil, Olive oil, Rosehip seed oil, Borage oil, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Honeysuckle and Japanese Honeysuckle flower extract, Chamomile oil, Frankincense oil, myrrh extract.
Camille’s Thoughts: l liked it, the oil absorbed well and was non-greasy. I normally use Aveno’s body cream due to dry skin but this was a good replacement. Downside is the scent, not a fan of frankincense and myrrh, and it is much stronger than the body wash.
My Thoughts: I loved this on both me and my son. These oils are an amazing blend and it was a great after bath/shower oil to seal in skin’s moisture and soften. I found the scent to be nice and calming. This is a MUCH better alternative to the traditional baby oil for baby’s skin. I also rubbed a little on my son’s wet hair to seal moisture before bed and his hair was soft in the morning without being greasy.

Camille’s Thoughts: The lotion was pretty thick. Just 1 pump covered Jackson’s whole body. Like the oil above it had the strong scent of frankincense and myrrh which I just did not prefer. The lotion did work really well though.
My Thoughts: The lotion is much thicker than I thought it would be considering it has a pump applicator. I liked this better for my son over the oil because he was able to apply it himself. I liked it also this would be a great all year lotion as it leaves the skin softened without leaving a heavy layer. I was able to use all over my body with just a few pumps. It smells the same as the other products which I liked however on days I used the lotion I did not wear perfume as it would be much too odoriferous.

Camille’s Thoughts: I used this with every diaper change and liked the mixture. I wish it was a bit thicker because it emulsifies at body temperature so you need to apply it quickly. Could possibly keep cold in fridge to help with thickness but that doesn’t really help if your changing table is in a back room. This scent was not as strong as the oil and lotion which was better. Absorbed nicely into skin and protected from diaper rash without leaving a thick difficult to remove residue.
I did not review this product but I imagine it might be nice for elbows, knees, hands and feet especially during winter time.
Overall Thoughts on the Entire Line
Camille: The scent was a little too strong for a baby. Not a fan of frankincense and myrrh and would prefer it to be unscented or a much lighter scent in something fruity, tropical or citrus. I took the products with us on a trip out of town and my relatives loved it. The bottles traveled well in their own packaging nothing came open or spilled. The size of the products seems that it would last a good while. The products have a great price point that is agreeable to quality of ingredients and size. The ointment would last maybe a month, while the baby wash and lotion 2-3 months. I would purchase this product.
Me: I love the product line and it would make a great shower gift for new parents. I think this is a fantastic alternative to the popular baby lines and has much better ingredients. I think these products are great for the entire family and that the scent is acceptable for men, women and babies. I would purchase the wash, oil and lotion for my family.
