With the longest day of summer officially behind us, treat yourself and your little one to skincare essentials that cleanse, moisturize and soothe. The team at Tiny Green Mom was recently introduced to the following body and skincare lines…and literally has had so much fun soaking them all in! From at home after the bath to after a day spent enjoying the beach, these lines are top picks in our home this summer.

 

Honey Buns Kit

Honey Buns Baby Kit

Leader of all things honeybee, Savannah Bee Company launched the Honey Buns Baby Kit, their first set of soothing and gentle body care products for babies of all ages this year. Designed with the delicate skin of newborns and infants in mind, this kit offers parents a combination of products to care for their little one’s skin. Each kit includes an award-winning Royal Jelly Baby Butter, a Honey Lavender bar soap (which smells dreamy!), a Bumble Balm Salve and a handy go-to guide written by two Savannah, GA board-certified pediatricians, “Baby, MD: The A, Bee, C Guide to Your New Baby.” Packaged in a darling ‘Honey Buns’ embroidered seersucker bag and retailing at $38, the Savannah Bee Honey Buns Baby Kit is perfect for summer travel as it tucks into a diaper bag or backpack with ease!

Belli Skincare Group

Belli Skincare

Whether you are an expecting mom or postpartum mom, your skin will love Belli Skincare, which has been designed for the specific needs of women! To moisturize parched summer skin, apply the luscious All Day Moisture Lotion which has a light, fresh & uplifting scent. We noted immediately how little lotion you need to apply to have a long-lasting effect…perfect for hydrated skin all day long! To help dry, cracked lips – tuck the Sheer Comfort Lip Balm in your beach bag or purse when out and about in the summer heat. In addition to these favorites, the Anti-Blemish Facial Wash has become a daily addition to “Mom’s” morning shower routine. There is nothing quite like starting the day with glowing, clear skin! If you haven’t heard of this line, head over to their website to find out why they are ‘Picky for a Purpose.‘ The Belli Skincare line does not contain artificial dyes or fragrances, and is paraben preservative-free.

Jojoba Company Baby Oil

Jojoba Company Australia Baby Oil

Your little one will love to receive a baby massage right after bathtime with this amazing 100% Natural Baby Oil, an exceptionally pure and gentle formula that absorbs deeply into baby’s skin to soften, soothe and moisturize. Made exclusively with 100% natural Australian jojoba, which is grown, nurtured and harvested on the company’s own farms down under, the 100% Natural Baby Oil contains absolutely no potential irritants including preservatives, artificial fragrances and parabens. The baby oil may be used for massage, as a bath oil, for cradle cap and diaper rash as well as for every day skin softening and soothing. In addition to jojoba, the Baby Oil is comprised of Organic camellia oil, Organic chamomile oil, Organic lavender oil, and Moringa oil. Did we mention it smells lovely?! Interesting to note – baby’s skin “recognizes” jojoba as its own, and allows it to absorb deeply for greater hydrating benefits. This is definitely a must-have skincare essential if you have a newborn or infant in the home!

LIve Clean Baby

Live Clean Gentle Moisture Baby Kit

This 4 piece set is all you need for a clean & happy baby! Having just launched in the US recently, Live Clean harnesses the beautifying power in plant-based ingredients to create gentle and effective products that are safe for you, your baby, and the environment.
