Smells


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.

Mmmm, I wish I could use scented stuff on me or my kids... Not gonna happen.

Remember to keep the hand cleanser away from the kiddos!

I'm like kq, (wave HI!) though I've found that it isn't all fragrances that bother me. Also, for me, I've found that I can use an unscented lotion and/or moisturizing cream with a bit of perfume every once in a while doesn't irritate my skin.
