I am a sucker for really nice smelling things. I have a rather large collection of scented hand lotions and soaps. I was very excited to review the new Sweetleaf Baby Collection, because most kids stuff smells too overwhelming and the scents are not very nice. One bubble bath I bought for the boys made them smell like grape bubble gum and I hated that.
I was given the shampoo and instant hand cleanser to try. The baby wash/shampoo smelt so, well the best way I can describe it is baby. I wanted to scoop my boys up and snuggle them all evening so I could smell their hair. Sadly they are very wiggly and were wanting to play instead of letting mommy smell them. It would be heaven to use this on a young baby that would be more than happy to let you hold them and smell their sweet babyness while they snoozed in your arms.
The hand cleanser had a nice smell and did not dry my hands out at all. The scent did not drive me as wild as the baby wash/shampoo but it was a nice clean scent that did not overpower me. It comes in a nice sized bottle that is not so small that it will disappear at the bottom of your diaper bag but small enough that it will not take up a huge amount of space either.
The biggest drawback to this lovely collection is the price. I am not the richest person and being a stay at home mother means we have to watch every penny. I would not use this every day on my kids, but I would give it as a gift to a special mother to be or I would buy it myself for a splurge to be used now and then.
