Protect Baby’s Skin this Winter: Skinfix

Keeping your baby’s skin protected and moisturized during the winter months can be a challenge. I had a December baby and by January of that year his skin was dry, chapped and irritated. I felt so bad for him! I was also worried about what was in the many lotions and potions I was massaging into his delicate skin. Enter Skinfix, a Canadian company that specializes in clinically tested & natural skin care products for baby. We’ve been using the products for a few weeks now and I am beyond happy with the results. Read on to learn why & win the Baby Line that we’ve been using!

The Routine:

Our usual routine is bath, a quick towel pat down to leave some moisture on the skin, lotion all over, diaper cream (if there’s a rash) and then applying a thicker cream for those extra dry eczema prone spots like around the mouth, ankles, elbows, and behind the knees. Skinfix fits perfectly into this routine! I’m not the only one who loves this stuff, it is the winner of the Parent Tested Parent Approved seal.Parent Tested Parent Approved Seal

Hair & Body Wash:

The Gentle Hair & Body Wash is sulphate and fragrance free, but it still creates fun bubbles when added to running water. I love the pump dispenser as it doesn’t let me over pour and waste. The product is also nut free and uses a no-tear formula. Bonus that tells me it is super gentle- there is no residue in the tub after I drain it!

Everyday Lotion:

The Gentle Lotion is a perfect everyday formula. I found it silky and easily absorbed into the skin. Again, this product is fragrance free and has a convenient pump dispenser.

Diaper Rash Balm:

For those unpleasant diaper rashes that babies all seem to suffer from from time to time Skinfix has a Diaper Rash Balm. This is a super rich formula that has been clinically proven to heal diaper rash in just one application. We did not have a rash flare up during the testing of this product and thus did not try it, but I am keeping it handy for the future.

Skinfix Baby Line

Eczema Balm:

Lastly is probably my favourite product in the line, the Gentle Eczema Balm. With this product a little goes a long way. The first time I squeezed some out of the tube I was left with extra that I promptly massaged into my dry knuckles- works for mom too! Despite being a thick 2% colloidal oatmeal formula I found that it easily absorbed and my son’s red patches were gone when he woke up in the morning. It does leave skin a little greasy, but this is much less of a concern than itchy red skin, plus I found it best to use just before bed. Again, you don’t have to worry about nasty ingredients as this balm is free of steroids (commonly found in eczema products), fragrances, parabens and phthalates.

Another thing that attracts me to these products is the packaging. They are all BPA-free containers with a sleek silver label. Hey, I like pretty containers sitting next to the sink!

    My biggest concern is my baby’s cheeks this winter. They get so dry that the skin turns red, breaks down and looks so painful! He’s 8 months old. Please help!

    I am concerned about the eczema that both of my daughters get in the winter months. They are 3 & almost 2. I don’t like using steroid creams on their sensitive skin. Thank you!

    My toddler gets awful eczema that covers her bum and down the backs of her legs. It’s so uncomfortable for her. I would love to try the whole line!

    The biggest winter skin problem in my house is trying to battle extremely dry skin mixed with a little eczema. So hard to find products without parabens, dyes, fragrance and all that other skin-irritating crap.

    My biggest baby skin concern is using products that contain sulphates and other unnecessary ingredients. It took us a long time to discover our daughter is allergic to products containing sulphate. I use Skinfix Body Repair Paste for my own sensitive areas. It would be wonderful to win the line for my grand daughter! Thank you so much! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Callie 2 gets dry skin on her upper arms during the cold months which require more moisturizer than at any other time of the year.

    I have horribly dry skin on my hands. They crack and bleed, ever since I was a child I remember this being a problem.
    I now have eczema on my two fingers which never goes away any season. My hands can use a serious skinfix!

    My biggest winter-time baby skin concern is dry skin. Our youngest doesn’t get it too bad, but her older sister really suffers and it turns into horribly itchy rashes.

    My baby had hand foot & mouth disease back in November and the dry skin was terrible ๐Ÿ™ Shes 100% better now but dry patches are still an issue.

  27. 28

    This cream has saved my hands and my babies’ skin. We all have extreme eczema (plus I’m allergic to something in most baby wipes). Prescription creams werent even helping but this did!!

    For sure my baby’s dry, dry skin. It gets so bad it will crack and bleed so I literally slather him in coconut oil after his bath.

    Dry skin. Between the cold weather outside and all the indoor heating, there is next to no moisture in the air. My son’s skin is getting drier everyday and his regular creams and lotions aren’t cutting it.

  32. 33

    My baby suffering from eczema. When I show it to the doctor in the beginning of eczema he sad it’s normal ๐Ÿ™ I know it’s not. My 7 years old got the same problem for several years. I used Aveno eczema lotion to make the skin softer and little better.

  33. 34

    Pretty much all levels of dry skin. He’s got really patches, eczema spots and some irritation. I can no longer find his regular lotion at Costco so I’m looking for new products to try. I’m also interested in new diaper rash products to. It flares up every time he is teething.

    My 2 mo old is having some skin issues that are concerning mom … Dry patches with red bumps around her eyes behind her ears and around her mouth. I tried the bath routine and lathering her up before bed and her skin is a bit better so we just need to stick with that! Trying to find something that works can get pricey ! I appreciate the recommendations:)

    My little one experiences eczema during this time of year, mainly on her wrists, insides of her elbows and behind the knees.
