This was ordered for my friend. He's one of those people who washes their hands a million times and his hands use to show it until he started using this moisturizer. He carries a jar with him at all times and his hands are smooth and normal looking. It is the best moisturizing cream!!

California baby used to be my favorite brand. It was what I was using on my daughter since she was a newborn. We tried Burt's Bees and it gave her a rash. California baby calendula wash handled that issue, all with a delightful natural scent.

However, it appears that they have changed the formulations of their products. Calendula used to be listed as one of the top 3 ingredients in their calendula lotion. This calming cream smells much different from when we bought it a few months ago. Less herby, more chemically. Don't get me wrong, the products still get the job done, but quality has gone down. More specifically, the amount of the selling "nature's first aid" ingredient: calendula has decreased which is readily apparent when you read the label (the order in which the ingredients appear indicates the amount of it within the product, i.e. if it's first, there's more. if it's last, there's less), when you smell it (where is the entirely refreshing herbal smell?), and her scratches now take longer to heal (must be the fact that there is now less calendula).

Will now be trying Butt Naked with Calendula, Green Tea and White Tea Lotion.

      Comments about California Baby Cream, Calming, 4 oz:

      I used this lotion for years. This time when I ordered, I noticed the texture was much thicker than the old. It also burns when I apply to my face. I looked at the ingredients and noticed that they took out a lot of good things such as willow bark and camella oil. Not sure what is irritating me. I spoke with california baby and asked them to go back to original formula and they said that they were unlikely to do so. I am now looking for a new moisturizer

      Comments about California Baby Cream, Calming, 4 oz:

      I have extremely dry skin, with patches of eczema(?). I wanted to try a "natural" product with a good smell, and this seemed like a good bet. It is the best feeling moisturizer I've tried in ages! Tried it on my face, worrying that it would be too heavy, but it soaks right in and feels wonderful. Doesn't clog my pores or make my makeup slide off. If I still had an infant, I'd slather it from head to toe. Scent is a little strong for husband, but he'll get used to it. ;-)

      Comments about California Baby Cream, Calming, 4 oz:

      I used to like this product so much because it smells great and not greasy. But the ones that I ordered lately are smell awful. It smells like the mixture of chemical and plastic. I opened one bottle. I wonder if I can return the other 4 without the original packing slip?

        Comments about California Baby Cream, Calming, 4 oz:

        This is a perfect moisturizer for both baby and mom/dad. I use it as a daily facial moisturizer and it leaves my skin glowing and smelling great. I love the mild aromatherapy scent coupled with the healing aloe vera ingredient. It's a nice cream for my kids as a general moisturizer and for mild ecsema breakouts.

              Comments about California Baby Cream, Calming, 4 oz:

              My 3 year old has had eczema since he was an infant. I have tried many moisturizers, including ones recommended by the pediatrician, but none of them works as well on his skin as this California Baby product. I will continue to purchase this product until he no longer has eczema or they stop making it. After just one application (usually after bath) his skin is smoother by the morning but within two days, I can stop using it because the bumps are gone.

                  This is the ONLY lotion that works on my son's sensitive skin. If we try another "natural" moisturizer, his eczema comes back. It smells great and truly is calming for bedtime. Love love love it and it is worth every penny!
