I am all about trying new things.. Nothing that is crazy or dangerous though, I am a mom... but as far as products, yep... I will try most things...
I was sent an email about Waxelene.
It is a "petroleum jelly alternative" and I was eager to give it a go.
It arrived for review.. and then the next thing you know, my little 4 year old was coming in crying... all scraped up and bruised from playing outside. I was curious as to if this might help him heal faster.
(He HATES when I put anything on him... so I was curious as to how this would go over.)
We cleaned up all the scrapes and then I applied a generous amount of Waxelene to each area. He was not upset with me for doing so... and then I put long sleeves and pants on him. The next morning, it was on the mend. Now, I am not saying that this is a cure all.. but it made my little one better ... and that works for me! There was no noticeable odor... and even with his eczema, we did not have any issues.
