HAPPY MAMA

Review Text: 
My daughter had a really bad rash and I bought some of this and later in the morning it was already cleared up so much better that redness was gone and was pink now I recommend this product to all babies. If it wasn’t for Desitin my daughter would still be in pain and crying . Make sure to give your baby a bath and then let them air dry and then apply the desitin on there rash!!!

Oily mess; not the same ingredients it used to be!

Review Text: 
Just ran out of the 16 oz. tub I bought YEARS ago. Finally bought a new 16 oz. tub for my newest addition, and it's a runny, oily mess. I compared ingredients and realized Desitin changed it. Well they should have called it some other name and still kept the old stuff because the new doesn't compare to the old. We got rid of it and switched to another brand. It was a waste of money! And I feel bad because I've recommended the product to so many people without realizing it had been changed!

Not what it used to be...

Review Text: 
With my first child, I LOVED the 16 oz Max strength desitin. It worked wonders very quickly and was nice and thick. Now (7 years later), with child number 2, I've looked everywhere for the 16 oz tub and realized they don't make it anymore so I settled and bought the small 4 oz. VERY liquidy compared to the old stuff. I still have an old 16 oz tub left (although its expired) and compared the two. The old one is MUCH better. Now, it seems you are paying A LOT more per ounce and getting a lesser quality, more watery product. Looks like a business move on Desitin's part to make more money for less product and quality. I guess I'll take my business to a different brand. I wouldn't recommend this product anymore (Back in the day, I SWORE by it).

Bring back 16oz containers!

Review Text: 
My son was born with genetic skin condition 2years ago and the only cream that we were buying Desitin Max Strength 16oz! He still would use the 16oz tub in 2 weeks, but they are no longer available. 4oz tube is inconvenient and lasts a couple days. As mom with special needs child I would love to have the big container back, otherwise will be looking for another brand.

Bring back the 16oz tubs!

Review Text: 
My child has the worst rashes most Doctors have seen. She's allergic to several ingredients used in wipes and diapers. I would go through a 16oz tub of Desitin max strength in 12 DAYS. I am a STRUGGLING PARENT on a limited budget. I depended on the 16oz tubs and this company has LET ME DOWN. I have had to switch to Boudreaux's Butt Paste maximum strength 14oz tubs. If anyone needs something similar to Desitin, you can find it on sale on Amazon for 14-15 dollars per tub every few weeks, so keep it on your watch list and stock up! I have dropped all Johnson & Johnson products, that's how angry this made me.

Bring back 16 oz tub

Review Text: 
The maximum strength is the only diaper rash treatment that works. The tubes are a hassle, bring back the 16 oz tub!
