Soft, Healthy Skin For You and Baby with Lavanila! (AND A Giveaway!)

From l-r: The Healthy Baby Butter, The Healthy Body Butter (in Vanilla Grapefruit), and The Healthy Baby Block (SPF 40)

Lavanila has done it for me again! I'm almost as obsessed with body butters as I am with oils, and I'm already a fan of the intoxicating variations of vanilla they use in the entire line. So their Healthy Body Butter is a no brainer!

This All-Natural, lightly scented butter absorbs instantly for deeply hydrated, luxuriously soft skin. 100% pure Shea & Cocoa Butters moisturize and condition while super anti-oxidants Goji Berry & Kakadu Plum deliver 30 essential vitamins and minerals for healthy, silky smooth skin. It's rich and thick, without being greasy and absorbs into the skin so quickly (so you're not left with the icky, slick feeling after applying it). And the scent! It's a "crisp blend of sparkling pink grapefruit, creamy sandalwood and warm Madagascar vanilla softly scents skin," perfect for the spring and summer (or just as a bit of a pick me up as we wait for the warm weather and sunshine to return).

Confession: I didn't even know Lavanila had a baby line! But it makes absolute sense if you think about their philosophy of providing "healthy and luxurious beauty products, rich in natural and organic ingredients, free from harsh chemicals and clinically proven to be effective, safe and nourishing." Isn't that exactly what you want for your little ones? The Healthy Baby Butter is fantastic! Slightly lighter in consistency than the grownup version and very lightly scented with that delicate scent that we associate with babies, this formula is also quick absorbing (no more grease lightning babies), but oh so moisturizing. This 100% natural body butter contains 30 essential vitamins and minerals that support the health and development of delicate baby skin. Pure Shea and Cocoa Butters blend with nourishing Calendula and Noni Juice for ultra-rich hydration that soothes redness and protects against dryness. Easily absorbed, it comforts and softens immediately.

And right in time for the aforementioned sunshine, they also have a Healthy Baby Block SPF 40. This has to be my absolute favorite sun block that I've come across for 2 simple reasons: it's all natural AND it doesn't leave that white film all when you apply it. It's totally non greasy and doesn't have the annoying cloying scent that some sunscreens come with. This will definitely be a go to product for my fair skinned daughters (and me) all season long! This "chemical-free SPF 40 uses a new generation of mineral sunscreens for broad- spectrum UVA/UVB protection, while vitamin-rich Calendula & Noni Juice nourish & soothe."

And now for the giveaway! Nothing is more important than the health and safety of your baby. Committed to creating the world’s healthiest baby care products, Lavanila’s 100% natural Healthy Baby Collection is chemical-free, and delivers 30 essential vitamins and minerals specifically formulated to support the health and development of delicate baby skin. The collection includes five hard-to-resist vitamin-rich products, including the Lavanila Healthy Baby Bottom. This fragrance-free formula blends premium Zinc Oxide & Lanolin with healing Calendula and Noni Juice to protect sensitive skin, soothe redness, and instantly relieve diaper rash.
