It’s been a while since I’ve done a review on my blog – most of my reviews as of late have been on Instagram! Also, it’s been a good long time since I’ve reviewed anything at all, because life has been CRAZY! Evie is now 2.5 and is bananas, and running after her + going to school = it feels like I’m running around constantly.
So this is about Botanical Therapy’s Calendula Stick Balm. The actual stick is much smaller than I anticipated, which is good, because I doubt I’d be able to go through a giant stick. Here’s a picture of it in my (small) hand:
I was interested in getting this stick for Evie’s mid section. She is almost all the way potty trained, but still uses pull ups and nighttime, and when she’s at school. The top of the diaper seems to rub on her skin a bit, and by nighttime there’s usually some redness/a small rash on her lower back and her sides where the pull up meets. So we usually rub diaper cream along that area, and it’s just a part of my day that I really don’t look forward to. Enter this stick! I can rub it quickly and easily on. She giggles because it tickles. It is not goopy or sticky and there’s no need to rush to the bathroom to wash hands. Plus, I can rub it on a any dry spots that pop up on her or myself! It doesn’t smell of calendula to me. It smells more like a light earl grey mixed with chamomile tea. I’m very into the scent! Calendula is supposed to be great on all sorts of skin ailments, so I’ll be trying it on bug bites of the summer, sun burns, etc.
