Over the past month, I have traveled up and down the east coast, and much of it was with my toddler. If you are traveling any time soon and need a baby travel kit, I have a suggestion for you. Try the Travel Kit for Baby from Skin by Monica Olsen. This organic travel kit is TSA approved if you and baby are traveling by air.
The travel kit includes shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion and a combo diaper cream regimen. All of the products smell great and left my son smelling clean. The shampoo and body wash work into a nice lather, although less bubbly then their non-organic counterparts. The diaper rash treatment included a spray and Calendula cream. The spray was very soothing and my son immediately relaxed once I used it. I then followed up with the Calendula rash protection. If your child suffers from frequent diaper rash, I would use this product daily to prevent outbreaks. You may want to let the skin air dray a few minutes before applying clothes, as this is not “pasty” like most diaper creams.
Skin by Monica Olsen includes products for men, women, and baby; all of which follow the same organic guidelines. Monica Olsen started this line because she could not find any products that were truly pure and decided to make a line of her own. She has taken purity very seriously and includes it in all aspects of her products.
All of the products are organic and made in small batches to preserve freshness. These batches are made on an as needed basis. The line excludes numerous common ingredients found in many skin care products that are harmful (visit the website for a complete list, as well as some education if you aren’t familiar with effects of many common chemicals). All of the boxes are made from Forest Stewardship Council paper. The FSC has very strict guidelines including no conversion of natural habitats, respect for human rights, and no chemical use.
Skin by Monica Olsen is priced in line with organic boutique and salon products. You can order Skin by Monica Olsen online or visit the website to find a retailer near you (US and Canada).
The Wine Mom has a review policy in effect that promises to only post reviews on products my family or I absolutely love. You likely won’t hear about the products we didn’t like, and you can be guaranteed that I won’t post a review just because we got a product for free.
