Huggies Baby Wipes

March 22nd, 2012 by mamawise

Huggies Baby Wipes are something that I still use today even with my boys being older. My personal favorites are the Fragrance-Free Natural Care ones. I have been using these wipes for over 6 years and absolutely love them. When my kids were babies, they were the softest, most gentle baby wipes on their little bums. These wipes also were durable and did not rip with some heavier cleaning needs. My kids still use these wipes to wipe their mouths, wipe their hands, wipe up spills, etc. I always keep a box in my car for anything my kids or I would need them for that would need a bit of cleaning.

I, myself, use Huggies Baby Wipes daily to remove makeup! They work better than any makeup remover wipe that I have tried in the past and they are so much less expensive then paying for those brand-name makeup remover wipes. Plus, they are very gentle on your face and are able to pretty much remove any makeup you throw at them! I always travel with them to keep my face feeling fresh and clean.

I found that the best place to get these wipes at unbelievably low prices is at Walmart stores and

Skin MD Natural

June 30th, 2008 by wisemama

Skin MD NaturalSkin MD Natural is an amazing dry skin care treatment product which not only nourishes dry skin, but also repairs and protects it. Skin MD Natural is known as a “shielding lotion”, which keeps moisture-robbing irritants away from the skin while hydrating the skin throughout the day. It absorbs instantly without the slightest hint of greasy/oily feeling or residue.

Being in the health care field I suffer from dry, chapped hands from constant hand washing. I also wash my hands frequently while at home with my children. Needless to say, my poor hands take a beating day in and day out. Skin MD NaturalWhen I first tried Skin MD Natural, I instantly noticed the moisture in my hands without any greasy feeling. It was as though my hands were “drinking” the lotion. I then decided to try other areas of my skin, especially my problematic elbows, which have been dry ever since I could remember. After the first application, my elbows looked and felt smoother, and now a few weeks later you would never know I had a problem with dry elbows! I now use this lotion everywhere, even my face because it is non-comodogenic and actually seems to help my breakouts. I have a cabinet full of moisturizing lotions some of which are very expensive, and Skin MD Natural is the only one I use now, because it truly works.

Skin MD Natural prides itself on being hypoallergenic, fragrance and colorant free, and dermatologist tested. You can purchase Skin MD Natural directly from their website, and there are some local stores that carry this line. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that my local pharmacy had this line. Click here to see if a store near you carries Skin MD Natural.

Huggies Baby Wipes

March 4th, 2008 by wisemama

After much trial and error, I have hit upon my favorite wipes to use on my babies bums, Huggies Baby Wipes. They come in several scented and unscented (Natural Care and Gentle Care Sensitive) varieties.  Specifically, I am a fan of the Lavender & Chamomile, as well as the Cucumber & Green Tea. They both just smell divine! I like these wipes because they do a great job cleaning poop or diaper rash cream with minimal wiping. Also, they are very soft and thick, which makes them gentle yet prevents them from ripping or shredding. In comparison to other wipes I have tried, it seems as though these leave the cleanest skin, there is no oily film left over after using the wipe, like I have experienced with other brands. I have also found a secondary use for these wipes – great makeup removers! I use one to get all of my makeup off my face in the evenings. Best of all, they are fantastic for getting off waterproof mascara. Plus, if you look at the price – it is so much more economical to use these as makeup removers than the wipes that are actually marketed for makeup removal.
