I was given products in this post for the purpose of review. I was not paid to write this review.
My Quinn is now 10 years old. Over the years we have struggled with his skin. At one point in time I had a shoe box full of medicate creams for him. One for his hands, one for his face, one for his eyelids and everywhere else you could imagine. I also had multiplies. For example if his face was just red I used one lotion if his face was blistered and had honey colored discharge I used a different one. Eventually I had enough. There had to be a better way. A lot of those cream had steroids and other unhealthy things in them. After doing a lot of research and a lot of trial and error I discovered the more natural the products Quinn uses the less his skin breaks out! I even started to make my own soaps so I could know 100% what was going on my sons skin.
Besides a bug bite that got a little out of control (the doctor said that could happen to any kid though, so it wasn't because of Quinn's skin issues) Quinn hasn't had to use his creams in over 2 years now!
As I said though Quinn is 10 now and like most little boys he is starting to sweat a lot more. I dreaded the day we had to start using deodorants. There isn't a lot of natural ones to choose from and I wasn't sure if they would work just as well as other brands.
Last week we discovered STARLING carries a line of kid deodorants.
Perfect for summer fun, back-to-school sports and more, allergen-free and chemical-free children's deodorants from Starling Skincare keep children smelling fresh all day! Gentle enough for tweens and teens, each deodorant is made without aluminum or synthetic fragrances, so it is safe to use and non-irritating for kids. Three varieties are available, including Force Field, Birthday Cake and Birthday Cake Sensitive.
So far he hasn't broken out from it and he doesn't stink so it is def. working! Quinn being the fun kid that he is choose Birthday Cake. I was worried he was going to smell like a bakery all day. He does smell sweet, but it isn't over powering. I like that it goes on smoothly and doesn't leave him feeling sticky. He told me his skin feels really soft now under his armpits!
This product gets a huge thumbs up from both Quinn and I. If you have a kiddo with skin issues trust me when I say I understand the struggle. Every time Quinn tries something new I feel like I'm having an anxiety attack not knowing how his skin is going to react. My advice is do your research, choose products that don't use harsh chemicals. There is better choices out there, STARLING skincare offers several products that you can feel good about your kiddo using.
