    MY SON IS A YEAR OLD NEXT WEEK, AND I'VE BEEN USING THIS FROM DAY 1. I RECEIVED A TRIAL TUBE, AND USED IT AS NECESSARY, BUT ONCE I RAN OUT I USED THE NEXT STORE BOUGHT BRAND. NOTHING COMPARES!!!!!! I IMMEDIATELY GOT ONLINE AND BOUGHT 3 TUBES, AND HAVE REPEATED MY ORDER EVER SINCE. IF YOU HAVE NOT TRIED IT YET, PLEASE DO. IT'S THE BEST FOR YOUR CHILD. WHEN MY SON GETS A DIAPER RASH, IT IS GONE THE VERY NEXT DAY. WITH OTHERS, I SAW IT TOOK ALMOST A WEEK TO BE COMPLETELY GONE. I WISH IT WAS SOLD IN ALL STORES, BUT FOR THE BENEFITS, IT'S TOTALLY WORTH IT!

    I have religiously used this product on my children and noticed in my last order, the new and improved product actually means newly perfumey! I hate the old lady smell and want to use unscented goods. I hate to say it, but I will probably not buy this again.

          I am a senior and have severe chafing. I get fast, soothing relief from irritated skin.

          This has mostly simple ingredients that does not require a degree in chemistry.

                    This is not the zinc oxide based Balmex I thought I was getting. It is basically scented petroleum jelly. I would return it if it were at all economical to do so. Maybe I didn't read the description properly.

                        This is the BEST product for treat and prevent rashes. My daughter suffered from severe rashes since she started eating solids. Once I started using this product 3 months ago, it has gotten rid of my daughter's rash FOR GOOD!!!! and keeps the rash away, day and night. It's not messy at all. I have one tube in every baby bag I own, and I'm stocking up on it... just in case...
