Didi Reviews: Grandma El's Diaper Rash Remedy+Prevention

Saturday, May 17, 2014

Diaper Rash creams - well, I hate them - why?  Because they're so sticky as hell and its so hard to remove from your fingers and hands!

When Kailee was born - I used Vaseline's petroleum jelly for babies because it was recommended by a friend.  But in a month's time, I had to switch to Desitin because Kailee developed a rash in the bum.  I remember it as if it was yesterday because the Desitin I received from my friend smelled so bad.  I even asked her if it was normal - and being a first time mom, I guess we thought it was normal.  I had no choice but to use it on her - and it was effective, but it was such a hassle to put and remove!  When that ran out, I asked my sister in law Sasa to buy me a tube of Desitin, and I was happy that the scent was nicer.  But there was still the problem of the stickiness.  I really hated that.  Whenever we put it on Kailee, there was always the problem of cleaning it off our fingers and cleaning off her bum every time you change diapers - very messy!

So every time we travel, I make sure to bring diaper rash cream.  I do not like to be in compromising situations thus I need to come prepared.  For the past year, I have been bringing with me Desitin, its such a hassle because what I got were packaged in a big pot, so I still need to transfer its contents to a smaller pot, just so to make it handy.  And again the problem - the icky feeling of cleaning it off my fingers and her bum.  I hate the mess it makes, I dislike the hassle of using so much wipes just to clean it off and then re-applying!  I swear, this is the task I hate the most because of the mess it makes and the hassle to take it

Grandma El's Diaper Rash Remedy+Prevention - P465.00

As I mentioned previously - Vanessa sent me Grandma El's stuff to try on my kids.  She sent me a tube of Grandma El's Diaper Rash Remedy+Prevention.  It was perfect timing because we were off to Subic a few days after.  But while in Subic, I never got to use it.

I brought it with me to Osaka because it was small and handy.  I didn't need to transfer the contents, I just had to bring the whole tube.  On our second day in Osaka, I noticed some redness in Kailee's bum.  She's already toilet trained mind you, but yet there was a redness - so as a precaution, I had to apply some on her bum.

Grandma El's is a breath of fresh air.  Its very easy to use!  Just press on the tube lightly and the product will immediately come out.  It has the perfect consistency - it looks like petroleum jelly but doesn't have its heaviness.  Its spreads easily as Desitin but is not as messy.  It glides on the skin and leaves a very thin film on the area.  Its not gooey and not sticky.  I noticed too that a little product goes a long way!  It has a very light scent that doesn't overpower.  Its very light on the skin too!  And my favorite part - its very easy to clean!  Actually, since Osaka was cold, I didn't mind spreading whats left of the products on the dry spots of my hands.  Yes - it was that light, that I didn't mind!  The skin absorbs the product and yet you see the thin layer of film protecting the skin.  I was really impressed with the product!  After a few hours, I checked Kailee's bum it was still okay - the skin absorbed the product!  You know that the product is still there and doing its job protecting her bum!

If you're looking for a diaper rash cream that isn't messy or stinky and is easy to apply then, I recommend you try this product!  Its really very very good!  Try it to see!  This product will change the dynamics in your diaper changing routine, I swear - you'll love it!
