Bum Ease Diaper Rash Spray Review and GIVEAWAY!!

Last summer when I was at Type A Con touring through the tables of various sponsors and businesses, one of the products that really intrigued me was Bum Ease diaper rash spray.  With the twins still in cloth diapers and Cort's sensitive skin, I'm always looking for good solutions to diaper rash.  Bum Ease was nice enough to send me a sample a couple of months ago, and I've been very pleased. 


The active ingredient in Bum Ease is zinc oxide and it is allergen and perfume free.  The genius in it is that you don't have to put it on your hands and it's a much lighter version.  Furthermore, if you've got a baby with a tender bottom, you don't have to add to the soreness by rubbing in an ointment - the spray is so gentle.  It's so easy to just grab and spray - no lids to fumble unscrewing while trying to hold a wily child on the changing table.  The twins actually love the spray - they laugh when I use it.  Cort, who is very sensitive to sore bottoms, often requests the spray during diaper changes, so I think it must feel soothing to him.

Here's a picture of my hand after one squirt of the spray.  You can see it offers a light, even spray which is easily absorbed into the skin.  I didn't even have to wash my hands after this - I just rubbed it in - it's that light.  Of course you can coat as heavily or lightly as needed.
We used the spray as a preventative for our trip to the Cass Scenic Railroad, which is a 3 hour drive each way.  It's such a small bottle that it's easy to pack for trips on the road.  Often, the twins will be prone to diaper rash on long car rides, but I'm happy to report we didn't have any issues this trip! 

As you know, I do use cloth diapers at home when we're not running around.  I did test this using the cloth diapers, and it didn't leave bad residue like the time I accidentally used an ointment.  However, I'm kind of hypervigilant about any buildup, so while I don't think it'd be a big deal to use it once in a while straight on with cloth diapers, I will use a liner the majority of the time, just to be extra careful. 

Don't you just love a product that makes your Mom-life easier?  This is definitely one of them!  Bum Ease has been kind enough to offer a giveaway of their diaper rash spray for one lucky reader!  This would make an excellent gift for a new mom - it truly does make diaper changes easier.  If you'd like to enter for a chance to win, just leave a comment to that effect.  This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only.  Winner will be chosen by Random.org and has 48 hours to respond.  Please provide your email address if it is not visible in your profile.  Giveaway ends November 1 at noon.

You can find Bum Ease on twitter and Facebook.  They just launched in August so they'd love your support!  You can also purchase Bum Ease at Kerr Drug stores.

Sounds like a great product... and I give you credit for the cloth diaper regimen. There is no way I would do it, and that's really out of laziness, do I dare admit. I was very grateful for the disposible diaper availability, but when I think of what they do to the environment, well, I hate to think of it.

Chris said...

Great product Lisa. I stopped wearing diapers last week so I'm good, thanks.lol

If I win, I want to give this to Meredith.

Mere said...

Enter me please! Even though I never win you giveaways :) Grady would probably think its funny if I sprayed his bum with something too!

Sally said...

Kudo's to you, Lisa for using cloth diapers. When my daughter was born, that's all we had. LOL

This sounds like a great product, and I know my granddaughter would like it for her newborn. :)

Grumpy Grateful Mom said...

This is something I would use. I like that it sprays on. My little guy gets so mad when I have to put regular cream on.

Sounds like a great product. Thankfully I'm still a few years away from going back into diapers:P

This would have been so great to have when Amy was a baby. No one in my family needs it now-thank goodness:)

This is interesting, but the name is so funny! I have not seen it in stores yet. Since the girls are now five, I won't be entering this giveaway, but how exciting that a mom will win it, I love giveaways!!!

Though I don't have any little ones at home at this point, it does sound like an excellent quality product for little bums!

Debbie said...

A spray rash ointment... what a brilliant idea! I'd love this!!

Joy @ Joy Of Desserts said...

I don't need this as my baby is a grown boy now, but I think it's great that it comes as a spray.

Lisa, I have an award for you on my blog, and there's a giveaway you can enter for a chance to win too. It's great for moms and families. :-) Have a great day.

This stuff sounds cool. We used to get a compounded paste when we lived in Nashville. It was called Happy Hiney and it was the greatest stuff on earth!
