It took me a while to get around to testing this, because thankfully Baby-G isn’t really prone to diaper rashes, and despite the fact that Skinfix Diaper Rash Paste tout’s itself a use every day to prevent diaper rash sort of thing, I’m loathe to be smearing things on her butt when I don’t absolutely have to. However, today she had a terrible rash. It looked horribly painful. Red, inflamed, with a blister or two developing. She yelled out in pain and writhed around when ever I tried to touch her bum. Right, time to break out the SkinFix Diaper Rash Paste and give it a go.
Upon opening the jar the first thing I noticed was — no bad smell! Most diaper creams I’ve tried in the past have a heavy sort of medical scent. This smelled like nothing. I lifted the jar right up to my nose and gave it a good sniff, no scent! Not merely an inoffensive scent, absolutely no scent. Awesome.
Unlike some of the other diaper rash creams I’ve tried, I didn’t mind getting this on my fingers. It doesn’t stink, and it’s not greasy or gooey. The colour and consistency reminded me of cover-up, you know the make-up foundation you spread on your face.
Baby-G was most definitely not a willing trial subject. She has no interest in me putting this sort of stuff on her, and she squirmed and generally gave me a hard time. I smeared it on as best as I could. I put this on her right before bed, the next morning her rash was gone. I think she must have made the connection because she actually asked “More med’cine?” the next time I changed her.
You can pick up Skinfix Diaper Rash Paste at your local pharmacy, or grocers (see full list of retailers), a 112g jar will run you around $11.99. Overall, I would definitely recommend this product. Of the handful of diaper creams I’ve tried this is the one I like the best.
