The best part of being a Mom, (besides the moment you realize they are sleeping) is the quality family time that you can all spend together. I am a Stay At Home Mom, so I am there for everything, everyday. I don't miss much, which makes it even harder to really appreciate the little moments. So when I do get that quiet moment, after they've gone to sleep, I can look back at my day and laugh again at the crazy things they said or the funny things they did.
One way we like to enjoy our family time is at bath time. Now, I couldn't really share bathroom pictures, but let me set the scene. Picture two little girls playing with mermaid dolls while singing and splashing. Me, the mom, washing really long hair and trying my very best to not get soaked by the splashing. My husband, the daddy, playing guitar and singing Taylor Swift songs so the girls can sing along. This is the only time during the week that we can all spend time together. These are the moments that are special to us.
After bath time is just as crazy and special. My husband is still playing guitar, my girls are still singing, and I am brushing their long hair and moisturizing their skin before pajamas. My kids were blessed with very dry/sensitive skin. Even when they were really young, I couldn't use the normal baby lotion on them. I had to bring in the big guns. Lubriderm is one of the lotions that works really well on their skin.
I have always been very careful to not use lotions that contain any scents on their skin, because they have had bad reactions to a lot of lotions.
Until now. Our new favorite is the LUBRIDERM Daily Moisture Shea + Calming Lavender Jasmine Lotion.
- Made with deep nourishing Shea butter and vitamin B5
- Clinically shown to moisturize for 24 hours
- Clean, non-greasy feel
- Use daily to soothe and renew
After bath time can easily turn into chaos, as tired kids can be dreadful. As you can see, I try to make it fun for them. I "draw" happy faces on them with their lotion or make dots all over for them to massage into their own skin. These are the little things that I hope they remember their crazed Mom did for them.
Look at all of the options out there for every type of skin! I like to use the Calming Lavender Jasmine lotion at night and a different lotion for the day. I love Lubriderm's Daily Moisture Lotion with Broad Spectrum SPF 15. I am a Latina, but I am a light skinned easily burned Latina. I need SPF at all times while living in sunny Southern California.
Although I was not allowed to get a picture of my husband lotion-ing up. He and I love the Men's 3-in-1 lotion. I mentioned that my daughters have very dry and sensitive skin, and they can thank their Dad for that. My husband suffers from Eczema, so he needs products that contain Aloe and have a very light scent. If the scent is too strong, he will sneeze for the next 4 hours straight (I'm not kidding). The light fragrance smells so good. But there is also an option for Fragrance free.

Can you tell how much they love the scent of the Lavender Jasmine? They are not used to being able to have a scented lotion. I love to see their fresh, out of the bath, smiling faces. Thanks Lubriderm for the calming scent, they went straight to sleep after these pictures were taken. Have you tried any of these Lubriderm lotions? Which one would you like to try?
