Introduction to Beautycounter Baby Soothing Oil

When it comes to my kids, nothing is more important to me then their health and well being.  So when it comes to putting something on my boys skin, I want to make sure I am actually applying products that will help them and not harm them.

That is one of the things I love about Beautycounter and the Beautycounter Baby Soothing Oil.  Beautycounter is a company that refuses to use harmful chemicals or ingredients in their products, especially their baby skin care products.  So I know when I am using Beautycounter Baby Soothing Oil, I know with confidence, it is not harming my precious little ones.

The Beautycounter Baby Soothing Oil is a mix of organic coconut, jojoba, and sunflower seed oil, that will leave you and your baby’s skin, feeling super smooth, without the greasy side effect.  I myself was cautious to use oil products on new-borns, but after one year of use, I assure you that Beautycounter’s formula is completely safe for your baby.  Minor skin conditions like cradle cap, scalp eczema, and dry skin can be dealt with by this amazing product as well.

Pros

  • It doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals or ingredients
  • All the oils used to make the baby oil are organic
  • Can help with skin conditions like cradle cap and eczema
  • Not just for babies, but for adults too; I use it as a primer for makeup, after shave for my legs, and to clean my makeup brushes
  • Can be used on all skin types
  • Doesn’t leave a greasy film
  • Comes with Beautycounter’s 60 – Day Satisfaction Guaranteed Return Policy

Cons

  • At this point, I can honestly say I have found no cons to this product
  • Please do keep in mind, if you are allergic to jojoba and/or coconut oil, or your babies are, then I wouldn’t use this particular product because those are the main ingredients

Who is Beautycounter Baby Soothing Oil for?

Yes, Beautycounter Baby Soothing Oil was made with the purpose of being used particularly on babies, and with the concern that babies, and young kids, have more sensitive skin and can be more susceptible to skin irritation because of this.

But don’t let the word “baby” in the name fool you.   I personally use the oil as a primer when I put on makeup.  In the past, I didn’t always use a primer when putting on makeup, but after learning about some of the benefits of a primer, I do it more often now.Beautycounter Baby Soothing Oil - Makeup Primer

After a hot shower and shaving my legs, I apply the Beautycounter Baby Soothing Oil all over my legs and they feel silky smooth all day long, and even the next day as well.  So like I said, don’t let the word “baby” in the name fool you.  There are many uses of this oil for all ages! 🙂

A third use for Beautycounter Baby Soothing Oil, and something I learned from Beautycounter, is for cleaning my makeup brushes.  This is something I never used to do in the past, but after learning what a dirty makeup brush can do, and the benefits of a clean one, I have added this to my maintenance of my makeup brushes.

Specifications and Ingredients

With an increasing number of essential oils being used in beauty products, it is even more important to keep track of what you use on your baby’s sensitive skin.  Many people are likely to assume that all oils are the same irrespective of their manufacturing process and the ingredients used to make them.  However, that is not the case at all. 

When it comes to Beautycounter, they have very strict guidelines and selection process to the Beautycounter The Never Listingredients they use when making their products, and that goes for their Beautycounter Baby Soothing Oil as well.  The company also has what is called, “The Never List,” which is a list of harmful chemicals and ingredients, that usually have been banned in other countries, but not in the U.S., and they have vowed to “NEVER” use them in ANY of their products, hence the name, “The Never List.”  As you can probably already tell, I am a huge fan of the integrity that this company has! 🙂

As mentioned above, the Beautycounter Baby Soothing Oil is made up of only 4 main ingredients:

  • Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil aka Sunflower Seed Oil
  • Cocos Nucifera Oil aka Coconut Oil
  • Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil aka Jojoba Seed Oil
  • Tocopherol also known as Vitamin E

It is good to note that all the oils are organic or biologique, which is French, literally for the word, Biological, but is used in this case to mean organic.

Warranties and Guarantees

Beautycounter is so confident, as am I, that you will be 100% satisfied with their products, that they have a 60 Day Return Free Policy.  That’s right, you heard that correctly, 60 days.  That is plenty of time to really give the product and the brand a try.Beautycounter 60 Day Money Back 100% Satisfaction Guarantee

And if for some reason you are not completely satisfied, they have even included a Pre-paid Return Label, that comes in your Packing Slip, to cover all your return shipping fees.  There are few companies, that I know of out there, that provide this type of satisfaction guarantee.

Price

Price of Beautycounter’s Baby Soothing Oil is priced very reasonably, in my opinion, at just $22, especially for the fact that one bottle can easily last 3-6 months, depending on usage.  Note that price of cosmetics, skin care products, and beauty products can always increase or decrease over time so   make sure you have the most up to date price by visiting the companies official website.

Overall Thoughts

After thorough research and  many months of personal experience on my kiddos as well as myself, I give the Beautycounter Baby Soothing Oil the Balancing Point Seal of Approval.  It has so many uses and is made with safe ingredients this has now become a staple in my household.

If you have any questions or comments about the company or their products, please do not hesitate to leave them below.

    Hello,

    This is a very good review of this product, and I am curious to try it out. The only thing that really has me concerned is that $22 is a bit of a steep price point for a baby oil. How much oil is in a bottle of the baby soothing oil?

    I also suffer from psoriasis and I am constantly on the lookout for high quality moisturizers that are made for sensitive, allergy prone skin. Do you have a moisturizer that you recommend for individuals with sensitive skin?

    Thanks for your help in advance!

      CJ,

      In regards to your question about the Beautycounter Baby Soothing Oil, it comes in a 4 oz. bottle.  Although, that may not seem like a lot, this is an oil, and very little goes a long way.  Also, keep in mind, while many other companies use ingredients that may be harmful to you and your skin, Beautycounter does not.  

      If this is something that doesn’t concern you, and it’s ok if it doesn’t…but if it doesn’t, then not only is the Baby Soothing Oil not for you, but pretty much no Beautycounter skin care product would be right for you.  Price is only an issue in the absence of value.  Read my full review I did on Beautycounter.  If after reading that you are not conviced that safer and healthy skin care products are right for you, then Beautycounter is not for you.

      But if you are on the fence and still have questions, then I encourage you to join my Facebook group.  The link is in the review above.

      Now in regards to your moisturizer question, the reason why your psoriasis may be breaking out from time to time is that many ingredients like parabens, benzyl alcohol, or salicylic acid are used in the making of most moisturizers out there.

      Beautycounter doesn’t use any of those ingredients in making their moisturizer called Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion.  This may be something you want to look into.  I would also add that if you continue to seek the “right” moisturizer for you, but haven’t found it yet, keep in mind that sometimes “cheaper” is exactly that, cheaper.  Remember, you get what you pay for.

      I hope this has been helpful.  Feel free to ask me any other questions or join my group to get to know me and Beautycounter a little more before making any decisions.

    Hi Mandy,
    Thank you for the review of this great product. I am glad to see another natural product on the market for skin. I think skin product manufacturers won’t stop putting toxic waste in their products until enough people learn that there are better alternatives. Thank you for promoting something that is all natural.

      Steve, thank you for your kind words.  In full disclosure and transparency:

      Over 80% of the ingredients that goes into the making of Beautycounter’s products are organic, natural, or plant-derived.  The others are synthetic. Beautycounter doesn’t market themselves or their products to be “all natural,” but that doesn’t mean they are unsafe.

      Beautycounter prides itself on having a “Never List,” which is a list of ingredients or chemicals that have been banned in many other countries, and have been deemed as unsafe, that they WILL NOT use in the making of any of their products.  Be sure to read my full review on Beautycounter, if having “natural” safe skin care products is important to you, then it will be worth your time to read it.

      I am glad you liked the review Steve, and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

    because of all of the additives, I stayed away from any type of baby oil – even when my daughter was young, as she has severe allergies, including to most diapers!

    I am glad to hear that there is one out there though, that does not have all of that junk, but I am surprised that I have never even heard of this company before!

    Now that you mentioned it, I surely will look more into this company, and read the other post that you have about them.

    Thanks for the info!

    Blessings!

      Claudia, I completely understand where you are coming from.  My oldest son had eczema pretty bad when he was an infant, and with my youngest, we have had to, and still have to, be careful with what we put in his body and on his body, because his biochemistry makeup is different than most kids out there, due to him having down syndrome.

      There are certain things that might not affect typcial kids like gluten or dairy, or tylenol, or the many different chemicals and ingredients that lurk in every day skin care products, that will have a huge negative effect on my son, Connor.  Feel free to read more about our story here, but know that I understand where you are coming from.

      Yes please be sure to read my other posts as well, especially, “13 Ingredients Banned by the EU that are Lurking in Your U.S. Beauty Products,” the research I did on this article really got me thinking that we have to be advocates and heroes for our kids and family.  We have to be the ones that ask the questions and challenge the status quo.

      Also, if you really want to know more about the company, please joing my Facebook group.  Many of the quesitons and concerns you have, come up in the group, and those questions get answered…plus, I give out freebies and discounts from time to time, which is a great way to try out a product with little to no cash investment on your part.

      Thanks so much commenting.

    I enjoyed your post on this baby soothing oil very much, I agree this product sounds to be an awesome product, especially for our babies sensitive skin.

    I am very dedicated to use products which are natural without those nasty chemicals, especially when it comes to babies, because they do tend to have more delicate and sensitive skin.

    I am very impressed with the product, but the price does get my attention. I know from my own experience natural chemical free products are worth the extra money since you usually need less to get the job done, I am wondering is this the case with this product?

      Jeffrey, I am glad you enjoyed the article and that you are also a person who tries to use skin care products that do not contain any harmful chemicals or ingredients.  I didn’t always try and use safer and healthier skin care products.

      But when I started to actually look into and research what ingredients were going into the products I was using and whether they were safe or not, I was appalled.  Many other countries have banned hundreds of chemicals and ingredients from going into their skin care products, yet the U.S. has banned less than 50.

      Anyways, I digress.  Back to your question.  Yes, you are correct in your assumption, that this small little bottle does go a very long way.  You only need a small amount to cover a very large surface.

      I recommend purchasing it for yourself.  Remember Beautycounter has a 60 Day Satisfaction Gauranteed or your money back.  They even provide a return label with their shipment because that is how confident they are in their own product.  With a guarantee like that, you just can’t go wrong for at least giving it a try.

      And if you are still on the fence, then email me directly at mandy@balancing-point.org, with any questions, or join my Facebook Group called, “Beautycounter: The Truth Behind Beauty,” and you can learn more about the company and the products, get your questions answered, and I frequently do a lot of discounts and freebie giveaways just for engaging with the group, so it’s a win-win! 🙂

    I’ve never heard of this product, but it sounds great. My son has cradle cap and even though it’s almost gone at this point, I may try this. I also love that it can be used for so many different things. The idea of using something like this as a makeup primer is something that I would never have thought of.

      Briana, I agree with you.  I found out about the primer from someone else as well, and now I love using it for that, as well as putting it on my legs after I shower and shave.

      I also use it for specific dry spots for my oldest son and I.  We both have some dry spots right around our ankles, that lotion was just not enough, but because Beautycounter Baby Soothing Oil, is made of oil, and not water based, like most lotions, it is longer lasting, and works better for our dry spots on our skin.

      I am glad you like the Baby Oil.  Give it a shot, you have nothing to lose, and thanks for commenting.

    Amazing review! I’m always on the lookout for great all natural products. I would consider using this product for myself as well as my kids, I’ve found using baby oil leaves my skin feeling so soft and smooth. After reading your review, I already know I’m going to love this product!

    This sounds like a wonderful product. We have to be so careful what we put on our children’s skin as it is so sensitive. I like the fact that the company has a “Never List” – I think (and hope) more and more companies should be going down this route.

    The price seems very reasonable too.

      Louise, I couldn’t agree with you more.  What I love about Beautycounter is that they have full transparency with all their products they make.  I can’t wait for the day that more companies have transparency with the ingredients that make up their product, not just in the skin care and cosmetic industry, but in all consumer goods! 🙂

      Thanks so much for your comment and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.

    Hi Jason! I am definitely an essential oil user. Sometimes price might seem a little over the top when buying essential oils, but the benefits outweight that issue. I hope parents find your review of this product beneficial for them. I will make sure to give this a GO. Thanks!!!!

      Jackie, you are correct.  If you are new to purchasing more cleaner, natural products, then you will notice there is a price increase in compared to what you used to buy.  But what I found, is once people do their research on how these harmful chemical and ingredients can effect their babies skin, then most find that the benefits do out weigh the cost.

      I definitely encourage you to give it a try yourself.  With Beautycounter’s 60-Day Satisfaction Guarantee, there is nothing to lose.

    Hi Jason

    Thanks for your thorough review.

    These days every baby oil product seems to have the words natural on it but you really can’t see the wood through the trees when it comes to which products are actually good or not.

    I like that it only has 4 ingredients which are all natural so no funny sounding things I can’t pronounce. With a new arrival on the way this is a timely review to stumble upon!

      SJ, I am glad you enjoyed this review, and I know exactly what you mean when it comes to all the marketing and advertising out there, it really is hard to figure out, which one is really telling whole truth.

      In regards to the 4 ingredients and being able to read and understand what they are, that comes from a regulation from the FDA and the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act that requires ingredients to be named by their common name instead of their latin name, which the E.U. and much of the rest of the world use, based on the INCI, orInternational Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients.

      With your new baby on the way, I really do recommend getting the Beautycounter Baby Soothing Oil.  Beautycounter has a 60-Day Satisfaction Guarantee so if for some reason you are not satisfied, you can always return it for a full refund.

    It is so important to have healthy skin.  In fact, I heard that our skin is our largest organ and that is so true because of all those nerve sensors that we have. What you are sharing here is pretty amazing and I am sure that so many people will benefit from this information.

      Norman, you are correct, our skin is our largest organ and what we put in our bodies and on our bodies can have a very real impact on it.  That is why I love Beautycounter, because they don’t use any harmful chemicals or ingredients in the making of any of their products.

      Norman, thanks for commenting, and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.
