Nicely done, dude. Thick and crunchy. 7/5, would eat again with plenty of liquid.
I used Dermalmd Cream during my pregnancy and I loved it. It didn't prevent me from getting stretch marks or anything but it made my skin feel soft and moisturized. It was the only thing that stopped my stomach from itching during my third trimester. I love it!

You should add to the don'ts: Do not use on babies. Only natural oils should be used on their delicate skin, especially NOT perfume! If you're doubting this, think about it, it removes paint, dissolves latex, i even read here about someone getting BLISTERS using it in their ears... I would never use this stuff on a baby's skin.

Baby Oil is a roach and ant repellent. Also a bathtub grime remover. Grout cleaner. My favorite....... FLEA KILLER!!!!! It stops them dead in their tracks. It's not the greatest for your pets skin I would imagine, just 1 time drench you pet with baby oil, and comb through and you will see dead fleas almost instantly

I read on another site that you can use clear mineral oil to replace the water in a waterglobe. Water apparently will evaporate over time, leaving bubbles, whereas the baby oil won't. I am trying to find out if mineral oil will damage plastic figurines (which you often find in waterglobes) before I do it, however.
I've never used baby oil, what I've used in the past is a dab of 100% aloe vera gel--if you sweat, it just gets slicker and slicker, so skin-on-skin won't chaff in the heat. Don't get the kind of gel with additives, that alcohol is in there to make it dry faster when you put it on, but it will sting delicate skin (esp. delicate, already-sunburned skin!)
