TruKid™ Hero Stick For Soothing Booboos and More

We are big fans of using natural products in our home. One of the first changes I made on my journey to living an eco-friendly lifestyle is buying and using natural personal care products for the kids. From shampoo to lotion to sunscreen, I make an effort to research and buy products that are made with ingredients that have been sun-kissed.

We recently reviewed the TruKid™ Hero Stick. We've used other products by TruKid™ like the Sunny Days Sunscreen, Happy Face and Body lotion, and Bubbly Body Wash. We've loved them all. The new balm is no different.

We used this on:

  • Big B's cuts and scrapes
  • My perpetually dry hands

I wanted to use it on Little B's diaper rash but according to the tube, it's good for big kids only. No doubt when he is a bit older we'll be using this on his booboos. I wish we had this on hand weeks ago when we had bug bites. It would have been so helpful in relieving the itch.

My favorite features:

  • Made of natural ingredients
  • Helps with dry skin
  • Fragrant is not overwhelming
  • Easy to apply, Big B can put it on himself
  • Easy to transport, great for first aid kits and backpacks

The price point of $12.50 for a 0.6 oz tube is reasonable given the many applications of the balm. You can purchase the Hero Stick on the TruKid™ website.
