  • Works great for minor rashes Apr 16, 2020

  • I have used several diaper creams but I believe this is the best. It is thick but still easy to apply. I love that it's in a tube and not a tub. Works great! Dec 13, 2019

  • Works great! Oct 31, 2019

  • i love desitin cream it is the only brand i will use, i will be using this for my third child. highly recommend! Mar 31, 2019

  • This is the best diaper rash cream on the market. It takes away rashes immediately and also protect delicate skin with a thick barrier to prevent rashes Mar 19, 2019
