5.0 out of 5 stars Super gentle and moisturizing

The lotion is very hydrating. My daughter enjoys applying it to her skin everyday. It's exciting to watch her develop a skin care routine at an early age.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for sensitive skin

I like to use this on my daughter after she has been on the sun. The lotion absorbs quickly but is very moisturizing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and effective ingredients even for adults!

I got this for me because I have really dry hands and feet. I wanted something gentle enough for kids and this is perfect! There are really good, high-quality ingredients and I love the pump bottle. It is super moisturizing, but not greasy. It soaks in well and leave my skin feeling really silky and smooth. It takes away the itchiness and lasts along time. There is a bit of a scent from the natural ingredients, but no added perfumes or essential oils. It has a bit of an earthy scent perhaps from the Shea butter. It has some wonderful fruit and flower extracts along with mushroom extract. I do wish that it had just a bit of scent, like some nice natural geranium essential oil, but that can be an irritant so probably why they didn’t add anything like that. It is gentle enough to even use on your face! The mushroom extract is tremella fuciformis, also known as snow mushroom and it is a hydrating, plumping ingredient that acts like hyaluronic acid, since it also attracts moisture to the skin. I think this is a wonderful product and I also am very pleased that it is made in the USA!

5.0 out of 5 stars Light & Moisturizing

I put this on my son's face in the winter when it tends to be more dry. It does a good job of light moisturizing without being oily.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great clean lotion for little ones

This is a really gentle, clean lotion for little ones. Helps to soothe and hydrate their skin. Good for year round use, we like it after bath time. Nicely packaged too.

5.0 out of 5 stars smooth and gentle, very moisturizing

This lotion was a lifesaver for my child's dry and sensitive skin. It was incredibly moisturizing and kept my child's skin soft and smooth all day long. I appreciated that it did not leave any greasy or sticky residue and was absorbed quickly by the skin. One of the best things about this lotion was that it was easy to apply and did not require any harsh rubbing or massaging. My child loved how it felt on their skin and looked forward to applying it every day. Overall, I highly recommend this lotion to any parent looking for a gentle and effective product for their child's sensitive skin. It worked wonders for us and I am confident it will do the same for others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very gentle yet thick

This is an adorable product, very giftable for a new mom. It’s so gentle on my baby’s sensitive skin. The ingredients are clean and natural. My daughter’s skin has a tendency towards eczema and this prevents flareups by keeping her skin calm and moisturized.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gentle and hydrating

I'm impressed with this lotion. It's not greasy, it is very hydrating for skin and it has no harsh chemicals. It is unscented as well. I took off a star because it is currently $21. for a 4 oz bottle which is a little pricey I think but it is a nice product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great soothing lotion for kids

The kids absolutely loved that there was a special lotion for them. They really like it and they thought it was smooth on their skin. They liked it for itchy dry skin areas. It was very comforting to them. They highly recommend it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Makes skin soft and good ingredients

I try to only use more natural products on my son. The ingredients on these were not readily available, but I did look them up and they are pretty clean. The lotion has no scent, so there are no perfumes to worry about. In addition, it makes skin feel so soft! It is not at all greasy and the feel of it after you rub it in is not wet or oily. Skin definitely feels moisturized. The bottle is small for what you pay for, which is my only complaint, but you typically pay more for natural products. I'm very happy with this and am quite comfortable using this on my son.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fragrance free, quick absorption, leaves skin glowing and soft

Tiny daughter is terrible at applying lotion. Being that she is an outdoor girl, her skin is consistently dry and chapped. I apply lotion on her every evening after a bath, and so I took the plunge on this lotion to give it a shot. It is fragrance free, and each pump provides enough lotion for an individual extremity. The lotion seems greasy at first, but once worked into the skin it is actually not greasy. Leaves a beautiful glow and skin feels soft again. Truly lotions the skin, and a much better product then expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars She thicc!

I am loving this lotion for my one year old! It says to use a dime size amount, and it used just a little bit more, but it was enough to cover her entire body. This lotion is thick, and that’s a good thing! That means you use less! It’s very moisturizing and doesn’t leave a greasy or sticky feeling. Definitely a good choice for natural ingredients and sensitive skin 😊

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this!

Love how natural this product is! My 7 year old really wanted to have a face moisturizer and this is so perfect for her age. No residue, odor, just natural ingredients:)!

5.0 out of 5 stars This lotion is so good. It makes your skin so soft.

Even though this is advertised as a baby lotion, I will recommend it to everyone! I work in a school and frequently wash my hands, which means my hands get dried out and chapped very easily, especially during the cold months. This lotion is almost more like a cream, in my opinion. It does not irritate my skin and feels almost like body butter. The effects of softness and moisturized skin are lasting. Hope you found this review helpful!

4.0 out of 5 stars I ordered for my six year olds dry hands- Absorbs well and does not seem to irritate

I ordered the Nuthatch lotion for my 6 year old and while it is gentle on his skin, I do find that more lotion would be beneficial. The lotion did help my 6 year olds hands that were quite dry and developed eczema patches from washing. The lotion has helped with his skin. The label is quite minimal, with just a QR code and no other information about the product. I wish there was more information about the product on the label without having to reference a Qr code or website. The lotion was developed by parents and kids and is a small business. It is described as using natural, sustainable, and biodegradable ingredients. It seems to be beneficial for my children's skin but having a larger size option of 8 or 16 ounces would be helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good!

This lotion works pretty well for our babies and is definitely fragrance free! The lotion seems a little bit thinner than some lotions which is definitely what you want in a high quality lotion. The bottle that it comes in only squirts out small amounts of lotion at a time which could be good or bad depending on your situation. We did have some issues getting lotion out of the bottle for some unknown reason but other than that this is a pretty high quality product!

5.0 out of 5 stars Light lotion for kids, gentle on skin

My kids are very picky on what goes on their skin and are very sensitive. This lotion is light, doesn't have much smell and doesn't cause irritation. The kids love it.

Nice scent free lotion for babies and toddlers to soothe dry skin. I even use it myself. It's a good size bottle, handy to keep in your purse. Good value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for my daughters dry skin on her cheeks!

I bought this for my daughter. She has really dry skin on her cheeks. We decided to try this product and it's amazing! Over night I seen a dramatic difference!! Will continue to use this lotion as part of our everyday routine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Lotion but Pricey

Ordered this to use on the grandkids. Goes on smooth, absorbs well and quickly. Virtually no scent. It is a bit pricey for a 4 oz bottle. Made in the USA thankfully. Leaves skins feeling smooth and soft.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super hydrating!

Super hydrating!!! I have a crawling baby whose knees and legs get super dry from our hardwood floors. After 2 applications his skin felt good as new!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unscented And Very Moisturizing

Made in the USA, this wonderfully moisturizing, thick cream has no added fragrance. It does have a very slight smell from the ingredients but I really had to work at it to smell anything. The cream is absorbed very quickly and didn't leave my skin looking oily or greasy. I applied it to my hands and was able to use my phone immediately after without any smears left on the screen. After just two uses my hands look so much better....too much spring cleaning had left them rough and chapped. A little goes a long way so this 4 ounce bottle should last a long time. The pump-top bottle only disperses a thin line of the rich cream so there is no waste.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but expensive.

This is not greasy and goes on light, absorbing well. There's a scent that I can't place even after looking at the ingredient list, almost like a sour smell, that I'm not too fond of. The smell on my arm eventually faded after some time. I think this is a terrible value at $21.00 (on 2023/05/01) for four ounces, which is $5.25/fl oz. When searching Amazon for "natural kids lotion," similar items are a lot less expensive at about $2/fl oz. Some are even 64 cents/fl oz!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice lotion, good for kids' skin

I got this lotion to use for my 7 year old. He has eczema and kitaris pilaris. I usually use the Cerave SA cream on him, but as summer is approaching, I wanted to switch to something without salycidic acid in it (can cause sunburns). So far it is working well for him. I usually moisturize him after his bath at night. It is a nice thick lotion, takes some extra rubbing to get it absorbed in the skin. His skin isn't as soft in the morning as it is with the Cerave, but I can tell it was moisturized. A big plus is that I do not see his eczema flaring up or his kitaris pilaris being irritated. I like that the ingredients in this lotion are all natural and healthy. For a 4 oz bottle, at $21.00, this is pretty expensive. This bottle should last a few months. I'm not sure if this is in my budget for all year long use, but I will definitely prefer it for my son through the summer months. Overall, a nice lotion for kids or adults with sensitive skin.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1st lotion for my kid

My daughters never really been one to let me put lotion on her but the other day I was putting lotion on after a shower and she asked if I could put some on her. I would like to use more natural products with her if possible so I was excited to try this product for her. She has no problem with the pump and getting it out herself and is excited by how soft it leaves her skin. With the pump she can't really get to much accidently so I appreciate that part.

5.0 out of 5 stars Daughter

My daughter is making an effort to take care of her skin. She has struggled with finding a hydrating lotion that doesn’t have all the harsh ingredients that adult lotions have. She displays this proudly in her vanity (she is nine) and remembers to use it everyday. We both have noticed a difference. Her skin is so soft and smooth!

This lotion is great for children. It has a creamy texture and is moisturizing. I like that it isn’t full of unnecessary chemicals and a lot of natural ingredients.

3.0 out of 5 stars Moisturizing but smells awful!

Have you ever had a lotion that’s old and smells bad, like it’s gone rancid? That’s how this smells! It really is moisturizing and has ingredients that are not harmful, so I love it for my little ones. I just can’t get past the smell. There is no expiration or use by date that I can find, so I don’t know if maybe I just got one that was bad, or if this is just the way it smells. It’s worth a try because it really is a nice lotion. I’d give it five stars if it had a pleasant scent…or even NO scent! But I can’t stand it.

April 16, 2023

5.0 out of 5 stars Great lotion

This is a great natural daily soothing lotion for children. I like how well-absorbed this lotion is on the skin, and it is very light. This is unscented, but it still has a slight scent to it. I will continue using this on my son's skin because it moisturizes his skin well throughout the day.

2.0 out of 5 stars No Seal or Cap, Pricey

This lotion arrives in a cardboard box containing important usage information and ingredients on the outside. Inside is the 4 oz bottle with a pump top. The one I received didn't have a seal or a cap on the bottle. This was concerning to me because there was dried lotion on the cap and inside the nozzle. Was it used and returned? Did it leak in transit? The box showed no signs of damage, which made this even more concerning to me. It took several pumps to get the lotion to come out of the bottle because of the dried lotion inside the pump. This made me feel uneasy, especially because this lotion is intended for children. I think the company really failed by not adding a seal to their bottles. I used the lotion myself and did think it was decent. It's unscented and gentle and absorbs nicely into the skin. It's hydrating and performs as it should. I think it's a pretty basic lotion for having such a high price tag. It doesn't provide anything special to justify the cost and when you add the lack of a safety seal on the bottle, it's nothing I would consider ordering again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Creamy kid-safe lotion

Great lotion for little kiddos! Kid-safe ingredients, and comes in a nice-sized white plastic bottle - so there's no chance of shattered glass if it gets dropped - with an easy-to-use pump top so that it's not getting squeezed out all over your floors. The lotion is white, creamy, it rubs in easily, and absorbs quickly leaving skin feeling baby-soft with no greasiness. No added fragrance, but it does have a little bit of an unpleasant sour smell to me when it's first applied - I tried it on myself to make sure it was the lotion and not my stinky kid. It goes away completely after it's fully absorbed and dried though, then it's truly unscented.

5.0 out of 5 stars Got this for my sensitive face

I actually got this lotion for myself because I have super sensitive skin on my face. This lotion is very moisturizing and soothing! Did not irritate my skin at all! I love that there's barely any scent, as scent usually burns and irritates my facial skin. I highly recommend this if your like me and need a mild facial lotion!
