I participated in this event on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers for Fischer Pharmaceuticals Ltd. I received Dr. Fischer products to facilitate my review. The opinions in this post are 100% mine. You can read my full disclosure policy here.
“Fischer Pharmaceuticals is a world leader in the development and manufacture of advanced health care preparations in the fields of dermatology, opthalmology and nutraceuticals.” Fischer Pharmaceuticals was founded in 1965 and provides products ranging from baby and anti-aging skin care to sun care products, and offers the consumer the best of both worlds: science and nature.”
I am pretty picky about the products I use on my children so I was a little hesitant to try anything new with my family. We all tend to have certain brands that we like but I always enjoy discovering something that I didn’t know was out there before and I hadn’t previously heard of Dr. Fischer products. I checked out the Fischer Pharmaceuticals site and after learning more I was definitely interested in trying this brand. And I was pleasantly surprised and happy with most of the Dr. Fischer products I was sent to review!
The adult EYE-CARE wipes are my favorite of the Dr. Fischer products. They are great for cleansing the eyelids and lashes of eye secretions and make-up. Dr. Fischer EYE-CARE wipes are hypoallergenic and tearless, and are “enriched with chamomile plant extract and glycerin to ensure moisture retention.” I don’t wash my face at night before bed (I know, GASP!), so most mornings I have a hard time getting the smeared mascara and eyeliner off my face. Not anymore! These wipes work so well at removing every last bit of makeup (and it only takes one!) and don’t sting my eyes or leave behind a sticky, greasy residue like so many other brands I have tried. An added bonus is they are individually packaged and great for on-the-go and travel.
I loved Dr. Fischer’s EMOL Baby Bath Oil! Just add a few drops to your child’s bathwater and you will see results immediately. I couldn’t believe how soft and moisturized my daughter’s skin felt after the first use! EMOL is hypoallergenic and enriched with herbal and mineral oils and soothing chamomile. The whole family has been suffering from dry skin this winter and EMOL Bath Oil has really helped to hydrate our skin and keep the dryness at bay. My husband even admitted to sneaking some in his bath one night and commented how soft his skin felt after!
My baby is almost one-year old so I’m not cleaning her eyes daily like I had when she was younger. I used these wipes a few times to cleanse her eyes and they were very soft and gentle and didn’t cause any irritation. The wipes have a textured, embossed fabric and contain gentle ingredients for thorough, efficient and easy, cleaning. These would have been great to have when she was a newborn to take care of the crusty, sticky eyes so common in newborn babies.
I use cloth wipes and diapers 90% of the time and haven’t used many disposable wipes in the last year with my baby. I love my cloth, so I was a little surprised at how much I liked Dr. Fischer’s Sensitive Baby Wipes! They are a little more fragrant than I’d like but they are very thick and absorbent and worked very well cleaning after a messy diaper. They’re alcohol and color-free, and are also hypoallergenic and didn’t cause any irritation on my baby. She has had bad reactions to many other brands of disposable wipes in the past, which was a big factor in our switch to cloth wipes in the first place. Dr. Fischer will now be my go-to brand for disposable wipes.
The Kamil Blue Moisturizing Soap was my least favorite of the products. My baby’s skin is very sensitive and it didn’t irritate or cause her skin to become dryer than normal, but I just didn’t care for its fragrant smell and color. “Dr. Fischer’s Kamil Blue is specially formulated to protect baby’s sensitive skin and to gently cleanse and prevent dryness. It is perfectly suited to baby’s natural skin protective pH (5.5) and leaves baby’s skin clean, delicately fragrant, smooth and silky soft.”
I also loved the Dr. Fischer Mommy Bag. It has become my go-to diaper bag for outings! I love that it’s a backpack and is much more convenient to carry than the traditional styles of so many diaper bags. One of my favorite features is the built in stroller clips on the straps, which allows the bag to hang from your stroller. The bag also has 2 exterior pockets to hold cups or bottles and plenty of room inside for all the necessities.
Overall, I really liked the Dr. Fischer collection of products and will continue to use most in our daily routine. To see their full line of products and learn more about this company visit the Dr. Fischer website.
