A skincare brand that I love, DeVita, just launched a brand new line of baby products called On My DeVita baby! I received a couple products from this line for review and asked my neighbors to test them out on their little one.
Claims: “For times when diapers cause rubbing and chapping in those super sensitive areas, “oh so soothing” Butter Cheeks Baby Balm calms, revives and helps rescue the stressed skin. Providing an army of ‘good guys’ seeming to fight against wetness and all the bad nasties, while helping to protect and balance baby’s delicate skin.”
Ingredients: Vitis vinifera* (grape) seed oil, Euphorbia anisyphilitica (candelilla) wax, Lavandula spp.* (lavender40/42) essential oil, L. Plantarum (vegan probiotic), Tocopherol (vitamin E – derived from sunflowers), Rosa mosqueta (Rosehip) seed oil, Limmnanthes alba (meadowfoam) seed oil, Butyrospermun parkii (Shea) butter, Simmondsia chinensis* (jojoba) oil, Melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) essential oil, Anthemis nobilis* (Roman chamomile) essential oil, Chamomilla recutita* (German chamomile) essential oil, Aloe barbadensis* (aloe vera), Calendula officinalis* (calendula) extract in Olea europaea* (olive) oil.

Pros: Cruelty free and vegan formula. Fragrance free. SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) free. Very moisturizing. Helped calm irritated skin and prevent future irritation.
Cons: The packaging and formula don’t work well together. The product didn’t last long.
The Verdict: I was told that DeVita’s Butter Cheeks Baby Diaper Balm was an overall great product. It worked really well and lived up to it’s claims. Not only did it calm irritated skin, but it worked exceptionally well in doing so and in moisturizing. The downside was the packaging. The stick would be handy for on the go, but isn’t functional for normal use. The formula of the balm doesn’t lend well to a stick form as it warms up during use. They used the product at every diaper change and it lasted less than one week. While they loved the product, they didn’t feel that this size and packaging made it cost effective. They would love to buy the product if it came in a larger tub packaging instead of the smaller tube.
