WFMW: My Kids’ Lotion

It’s Works for Me Wednesday and it’s also true confessions time. What works for me is that the whole family uses my kids’ lotion. As a matter of fact, I use it more on myself than I do on them! We use Gerber Grins & Giggles, and I love the fact that they have so many different scents and are so affordable! You can usually get a 14 ounce bottle at Wal-Mart for around $2.50 and there are often coupons to be had at I also love the coordinating Grins & Giggles hair & body wash and I’ve recently found it at Big Lots for $1.99! My favorite scents are Sweet Pea and Lavender, and my husband uses the Oatmeal almost every day and it smells great, but not so girly. The lotions are very moisturizing and the hair & body wash smells fantastic, and the smell stays in my kiddos’ hair for awhile. I love it! (Once again, the good folks at Gerber are not paying me for this, although I can be bought. How many times do I have to say that before I get some free stuff??) So if you love to smell like your clean baby all day, go get some G&G! It works for me!

  1. Guilty! Baby shampoo makes your hair so soft! And I, too, love the Sweet Pea scent. 🙂
    It’s also makes a really smooth lather for shaving your legs!

  2. That’s a great idea. I hadn’t thought of it!

  3. I love the Sweet Pea scent too – we use the foaming body wash on my little one all the time. She loves playing with the foamy soap too and even tries to wash her own little belly and feet – too cute!

    I have a friend who used to work for Gerber so I used to get free samples from her, but unfortunately not anymore. 🙁

  4. I’ll have to check that out!

  5. Yeah, I use the baby lotion here too. Penaten Gute Nacht Lotion (Good Night Lotion). This company is owned by Johnson and Johnson. This is probably more interesting for European consumers. But will try out the Gerber stuff when I visit the States.

  6. Ok, this is me again. I am unsure what the add was above the “Email This Subscribe to this Feed”. But it came up to me as a website in German linking to Was this suppose to be for Gerber? Just wondering…

  7. Thanks for the tip, I have never tried that brand yet. I LOVE Aveeno baby, it works just like the adult version & is usually cheaper. I will give this one a try, especially if they have an oatmeal version, that is what I love about Aveeno (works great on dry skin)
