Blogfest with Aveeno

Last month I attended Blogfest, a big blogging conference in London.  It was my first time and I had a brilliant day.  The team at Aveeno sponsored me to attend and I came away from the day feeling inspired to start vlogging (I could do with some of that inspiration coming back as I still haven't started).  The sessions that I attended focused mostly on YouTube and how to create great content and I loved catching up with bloggers I know and meeting new ones.

Before the event we had a chat with the team at Aveeno about their new baby range.  Aveeno is a well known name when it comes to skin care and I was recommended it so many times for Archie's dry skin.  The new baby range is even more gentle and designed specifically for babies and there incredibly sensitive skin.

A baby's skin is still developing for at least the first year of life and it loses and gains water more rapidly than adult skin.  It is up to 30% thinner than adult skin and can be prone to dryness and irritation.  Aveeno is developed with colloidal oatmeal - something that his been used for generations to look after sensitive skin and clinically proven to help reduce the itching and irritation of eczema.

We have been using the products on Cora, the emollient cream after a bath and the daily barrier cream to keep nappy rash at bay.  We use reusable nappies and the Aveeno cream seems compatible with them.  I have also been using the emollient cream on Archie - baby products are still perfect for his skin at 3 and it has made such a different.  He has suffered from dry skin for a long time and it felt softer after only a couple of days and is much less itchy for him.  Whilst the normal Aveeno range would be fine for him, I prefer using the baby care products as I can then buy one bottle to use for all the children.

My to do list has grown since the event although as always I have more ideas than I have actual time.  I would love to start vlogging more, sharing an insight into our lives and routines and hopefully capturing more special memories on camera to look back on when the children are bigger.

Thank you to Aveeno for sponsoring me to attend Blogfest, Cora and I had a great day and she has been a little bit softer ever since.
