The One Soothing Product Moms (and Babies) Need

Countless late nights and wee hours with eyes half open while calming and caring for your baby. A mountain of parenting books on the nightstand recommended by family/friends/doctors. Worrying about every tiny issue or potential issue that arises. The food sacrifices and bad habits you do your best to kick. There’s truly nothing quite like a mother’s love.

Mamas know how delicate our precious little ones are, and that love extends to the products we put on our baby’s skin as well as our own. It’s crucial to use products that are gentle, effective and most importantly, safe. For sensitive areas prone to chapping and irritation, our favorite product creates lasting comfort for both mom's and baby’s skin. Get your diaper bag ready—you won’t want to leave home without this soothing product.

Revealing the Riddle

Hmmm, a product for moms and babies that soothes, is gentle, and comes in a small container that easily fits in a purse or pocket…what could it be? Here’s a hint: you won’t find it in the baby aisle.

Our favorite comforting product is none other than the Luxury Lip Balm. Don’t let the name throw you off - our OG lip balm is great for more than just lips. Being certified organic (99% organic and 100% non-GMO to be exact) with a limited ingredient list, it’s safe for all members of your family, from mom to baby brother to big sister (don’t worry, we’ll touch more on its ingredients later).

Here are a few ways you can use your Luxury Lip Balm to provide lasting comfort for you and your little ones.

Amazing Uses for Moms and Babies

Nipple balm
Motherhood comes with a lot of joys…but also some aches and pains. No one can deny the beautiful connection and bonding that comes with nursing your baby, but with regular breastfeeding and pumping schedules, what do you do when dry, cracked, and bleeding nipples become so painful that you’re bordering on supplementing with formula to get relief? The Luxury Lip Balm can easily double as a nourishing nipple balm, soothing sensitive nipples and allowing you to continue breastfeeding like normal. And since it’s organic, you don’t have to worry about your baby swallowing a little.

Diaper balm
With the daily diaper changes can sometimes come the dreaded diaper rash. It’s heartbreaking to see our baby’s delicate skin covered in red rashes and bumps, and even more so when they cry out from the discomfort. Our Luxury Lip Balm makes for a wonderful salve that soothes your baby’s bottom and protects him or her from diaper rash. Apply to areas where you notice any redness and preventively for all-day comfort for your little one. A big bonus is that number twos will stick less to the skin, making wiping a breeze.

Lip balm
Of course, the Luxury Lip Balm can act as a lip balm too! Apply it to your lips or baby’s to provide and retain moisture, especially during those colder, dryer months.

Dry spots
For the rest of the areas that are prone to drying out, the Luxury Lip Balm can take care of those too. Dab a bit onto you or your baby’s dry spots and watch them disappear after a few uses.

It’s Not Just Us Who Love It

Being a mom comes with a healthy dose of skepticism—we get it. Don’t just take our word for how beneficial and moisturizing the Luxury Lip Balm is. Moms alike agree that this is the only balm you need. Let’s let the reviews speak for themselves:

“I love this lip balm! It has a smooth, melty texture and it is so moisturizing. It lasts extremely long and I really enjoy not having to reapply it multiple times a day. Organic matters, especially with lip products. We obviously swallow anything on our lips. I can put this on with confidence and not worry about kissing my kids and getting toxins on them. I have tons of lip balms and this one has replaced them all. Worth it!!!” - Kristin

Buying this lip balm over and over again
“I am just amazed by this product. For the past seven years Ive been buying it. Its just amazing and heals chapped lips but can also be used at other dry spots. Love the scent. And also, my son loves this and asks for it all the time. He always reminds me when its time to buy new.” - Terese

Hydrated Lips
“The luxury lip balm has a great texture and it's not sticky. I have used it as a go to for my cuticles and for dry cracked areas in my hands. Its a great quality product that I use all year round.” - Thalia

Ingredients Matter (Especially for Little Ones)

From the moment we see that little + sign on the stick, stressing over what’s safe and isn’t for our little one is a rite of passage for moms-to-be (and even experienced moms too). That’s why our products, including the Luxury Lip Balm, are formulated with natural and certified organic ingredients. The Luxury Lip Balm is created using only seven familiar ingredients: coconut oil, beeswax, avocado oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, jojoba oil and non-GMO vitamin E. Free of essential oils, scents, and fragrances, this balm includes only what’s necessary to give you and your baby’s skin the moisture it craves. Its simplicity makes it gentle and hypoallergenic, so you know it isn’t going to irritate your baby’s sensitive skin.

The Luxury Lip Balm is also USDA certified organic (if you’d like to find out more about how to become USDA Organic, check out our blog post detailing the rigorous process). This includes being food-grade safe, meaning if your baby accidentally ingests some (we all know babies love sampling the world like they’re at a buffet), it won’t harm them.

An Ode to Motherhood

While you’re navigating the trials and tribulations of motherhood, know it’s okay to not get everything right. Find support in products you know you can trust and alleviate the burden of wondering if it’s enough. Big or small, the right products can empower you in your journey as a mom. From the gentlest baby shampoos to the safest car seats, you’ll know your baby is taken care of. Support can even come as small as a lip balm, which soothes the typical aches that come with being a mama.

From cooing over your sleeping baby to struggling to keep up with the ever-expanding to-do list, motherhood is simultaneously beautiful and frazzling. You do so much to give your children the best possible start in life, but don’t forget that it’s okay to seek support along the way. Keep yourself sane by leaning on your loved ones to help with childcare every now and then. Grandma and grandpa would love some one-on-one time with their grandbaby!

While the the little one is getting spoiled, take some time for yourself. Whether it’s getting back into a hobby or finally getting to take that hour-long bubble bath you’ve been dreaming of, not only do you deserve it, but sometimes you absolutely need it so you're not pouring from an empty cup.

We'll end with some parting words of truth:
You have come so far, mama. And you are rocking this thing called motherhood. You are more capable than you know and so very loved by your little one(s). Here's to the beautiful and unpredictable journey ahead. You've got this!
