Just because the label on that cute bottle says “Baby” and “Kiddie” doesn’t mean they’re exclusively for kids. Here are my favorites:
Mustela Bébé Baby Shampoo
How I use it: My face is sensitive so the wrong product can instantly set off an allergic reaction. Once, when I ran out of cleansing solution for my makeup brushes, I used a mild shampoo instead. Even after washing the brushes thoroughly, my face still broke out in hives! But when I used Mustela Baby Shampoo, the brushes came out squeaky clean and soft, and my face stayed calm. I don’t even buy cleansing solution for my brushes now. I just use Mustela’s shampoo!
Johnson’s Baby Shampoo
How I use it: Baby shampoo is the hairstylist’s secret for clarifying hair of product buildup. It’s also the secret to toning down wild hair color! Yes! I like coloring my hair but when I think my red hair is too vivid, my black is too inky, or my brown too dense, I quickly wash my hair with baby shampoo. It’s gentle on newly dyed hair yet tough on color, so it strips off the dye.
VMV Hypoallergenics Mom & Baby Grandma Minnie’s The Big Brave Boo-Boo Balm
How I use it: This balm is my family’s first aid for scrapes and bug bites, not just for my kids but for me and my husband, too. I also use it for my lips, taming unruly brows, and moisturizing dry cuticles.
Physiogel Hypoallergenic Cleanser
How I use it: I love this no-nonsense, no-fragrance, non-comodegenic cleanser! It’s super gentle and moisturizing so I use it on my kids. But I also use it as a makeup remover when I’m too tired to wash my face. I just apply on my face and wipe off with tissue.
Johnson’s Baby Powder
How I use it: Baby powder was especially useful when I was pregnant. It kept me cool and soothed my itchy skin. I also use it when I run out of anti-perspirant. I use it on my lashes to plump them up before applying mascara. I dust a little on my unwashed hair to absorb oil on my scalp. I use it to detangle snarled necklaces. It’s a very useful product!
