WaterWipes USA: { A Review & CONTEST!!}

“This post was sponsored by WaterWipes as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central.  I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.”

When I was pregnant and prepping for my first baby, a friend of mine told me to make sure and not use regular baby wipes on my baby when she was a newborn.  She said the baby’s skin is too new and delicate, and that I should only use water and cloths or tissues to wipe my baby.  I’m not gonna lie, this freaked me out a little bit!  I didn’t want to hurt my new baby’s skin, and I didn’t like the idea that I couldn’t just quickly grab a wipe…knowing I would be changing a million diapers a day in the beginning (and keeping track of how many…talk about a dream job haha).  But now with baby #2 I have found some smarter products and have been less stressed.

I never really new that there could be weird things in baby wipes….but then I checked the ingredients on the generic baby wipes I used to buy in bulk.  And this is what it said: Water, Propylene Glycol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Tocopheryl Acetate, PEG-75 Lanolin, Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate, Polysorbate 20, Citric Acid, Disodium Phosphate, Disodium EDTA, Ethylene Brassylate, 2-Bromo-2-Nitropropane-1,3-Diol, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate.

Ummm….What?! It’s a wipe, to wipe a baby’s booty….that’s all I need it to do!…why in the world would all these ingredients be necessary for that??

As a mom, I am always trying to make wise, safe and healthy decisions for my family (with balance of course)…and I don’t always get it right.  But I recently came across this new baby wipe brand called WaterWipes that sells at Target (My practically daily fave place to go) and honestly, this looks like a no-brainer easy fix for me!

WaterWipes USA are the purest baby wipes you can get, and are totally CHEMICAL FREE! 

IMG_4957I found WaterWipes easily on the top shelf in the baby wipe section at my local Target.  They were $3.99 but you can get them online for $3 right now, plus if you have the Target Red Debit Card…you get free shipping and 5% off!  (I can’t live without that card!)IMG_4967The Ingredients are 99.9% Pure Irish Water, and .1% Fruit Extract…that’s an all natural wipe my friends!IMG_4968

Here is a little look into my youngest daughters room and changing station.  I brought a couple packs of WaterWipes home from Target and below you will find my first experience with them:IMG_7152I noticed right away that they have a very subtle and light, sweet smell.  (This must be from the fruit extract which is actually Grapefruit seed extract!) I tried the wipe on my skin first, before my baby’s…and I noticed a difference right away in the feel of the wipes.  These are less slick and slimy.  IMG_7185My daughter was fascinated by the baby on the wipe wrapper…she kept trying to say “Baby”…..for her it comes out “Be” haha.  I have used them on her now for several weeks and I even took a pack on our vacation in the mountains last week just to wipe faces and hands.  They smell good, feel good, do a good job cleaning, are durable, and I feel better knowing I am not putting any unnecessary chemicals on my daughter…only natural sweet ones.  See Below for contest info!

XOXO, Caroline

New Logo…and..ETSY SHOP!!

Hey sweet friends! Just wanted to let you all know that my friends Fresh Lavender Designs created a new look for my blog and Etsy shop!  I love it and love the work they did for me!

For those of you that didn’t notice that I added a “Shop” tab a few months back…and noticed I said “Etsy Shop” a few seconds ago are in for a big surprise.  I have been working out the kinks for months and am finally able to announce that I have launched a sweet Etsy boutique.  The name is the same as the blog: Sweetly Lemon, and there are all sorts of fun things from glittery tumblers, to totes, to kids clothes!  I am sure more will change and more items will be added in the future, but be sure to check it out and thanks in advance for your grace!
