Weleda's New Line of Products that are Perfect for Sensitive Skin & Our Bath-time Favorites Giveaway


Disclosure: All thoughts and opinions expressed are 100% my own, I received no other compensation for this post. I received products after winning a raffle at an event.




Sometimes as a parent, after the first time around you think you are pretty prepared to handle whatever the second or third kid has in store only to get thrown a curve-ball that you hope can be easily resolved. When our second lil' monster Tristan Riley was born, we weren't really familiar with eczema or products to use to help the condition. As a kid I remember my younger sister having to take weekly oatmeal baths to help relieve her itchiness and the patches that formed well into her pre-teen years and how annoyed she was with it all. My son Tristan Riley's eczema developed rather quickly after he was born, with redness and a rashy patches on the creases behind his knees and arms, on his chest, face and even on his scalp. The itchiness was so intense for the little guy it resulted in him basically pulling out most of his hair and the pediatrician prescribed tubes of stuff we could hardly pronounce to apply, when & where needed. We even had to buy multiple pairs of those little baby mittens, and sometimes just improvised with any clean pair of baby socks we had, to put over his hands {because honestly who can keep up with laundry and a newborn} just to keep him from scratching and in fear he'd actually break the skin.

Bathtime meant naptime for Tristan and was a great moment to moisturize, irritated Eczema patches on his chest & arms.

The exact cause of eczema is unknown but it's believed to be an overactive response by the autoimmune system to some form of irritant effecting about 10 -20 % of infants in the U.S and roughly 3% of children and adults. For most parents it's really frustrating when you don't know how to help your child and I'm sure if you are anything like me you always have an eye out for products that not only bring relief but that are safe and natural. We first started using Weleda products about 4 years ago around this time of year, when we discovered the line at an Earth Day event at Grand Central Terminal here in NYC. I've been hooked ever since on their Sea Buckthorn body oil {the citrus fragrance helps to wake me up}, have used their Calendula baby products for both of my boys, and I even love to use the Calendula face cream for myself.


Weleda recently launched two new products to help those with highly sensitive skin.With ingredients like organic white mallow, pansy extract and coconut oil, the Derma White Mallow Body Lotion and Face cream helps manage the symptoms of eczema by promoting healthy skin formation, moisturizing and relieving itchiness caused from dryness. What's so great about Weleda products is that they don't contain any chemical preservatives or synthetic fragrances and both new products have been accepted by The National Eczema Association because they were tested and found to be safe and beneficial for people with Eczema.


While attending a Well Rounded NY prenatal event, the hubby and I entered and won a raffle of Weleda Calendula and White Mallow products.When our package of goodies arrived, Tristan instantly requested to jump in the tub and grabbed all his bath toys. Without even opening the seal on the bottles you could smell the lovely Calendula products which Tristan said smelled like juicy fruits. The White Mallow line has a lighter scent that comes from the natural ingredients within the product.




Tristan's skin felt noticeably softer {although a little wrinkly from being in the tub way too long} right after taking him out of the tub, and when he asked for the cream for his "scratchies", I squeezed a bit in his hand and he rubbed it on his arms and legs, which is where he tends to get irritated mostly these days. I currently have to hide all the bath products and lotions because he's already been caught hiding in the tub while squeezing out way too much "fruit" cream.

To celebrate the new line and in honor of Earth Day, the lovely folks over at Weleda and I have teamed up to offer 1 lucky reader both the White Mallow Body Lotion and White Mallow Face Cream along with (1) Calendula Shampoo and Body wash & (1) Calendula Cream Bath. Just enter the Rafflecopter down below, lots of luck!



Update: The Winner is Maria Bambinos who has been notified. The Rafflecopter had to be disabled after the giveaway because of a computer bug on their end.
