Review: Burt's Bees Baby Bee Diaper Ointment

You know, I don't think I have anything negative to say about this stuff.  I first discovered it almost five years ago when Kinder Major was newly hatched, and fell in love with it from day one.

Let's start with the basics, shall we?

Ingredients:  Being that it is a zinc oxide formulation, it's thick and creamy.  It's paraben, petrolatum and mineral oil free.  It contains sweet almond oil, beeswax, vitamin E, calendula, chamomile, jojoba, lavender, rosemary, canola, and soy oil.  All of these wonderfully healing and soothing ingredients blend together perfectly.  (No, really.  Consult any herbal, all of these extracts compliment eachother.  They're not just tossed in willy nilly like you'll get with some products.)

Scent:  Has a very soothing, fresh scent.  Not terribly overpowering.

Feel on the skin:  Oh wow.  A lot of zinc oxide based ointments can become gritty, but this stays smooth and creamy.

Does it stain, you ask?  Not that I've encountered thus far.  It's also safe for cloth diapers.

Most importantly, does it work?  Abso-freakin-lutely.  I use this on EVERYTHING, from scratches to bruises to bugbites.  I even use it on actual diaper rash!

This product gets ten starts on a one to five scale, with five being the best.**

One word of caution:  Upon first opening the tube, some of the oils can rise to the top and separate a bit.  It's best to massage the tube well before each use.

**I am NOT being paid to endorse this product.  I reallty do just love it that much.
