If I get a chance to review something made with natural ingredients, free from the nasties so many products are filled with and particularly good for dry skin, I will always say yes. And the same goes for products for Ethan – He has always had super dry skin and very little has worked on him; just like me suffers from the ‘orange peel’ type skin, rough and bumpy to touch, on his thighs and the back of his arms. As such I jumped at the chance to try the ‘travel goodies’* set from miamoo as it’s filled with products which offer wonderful results when it comes to dry skin and are full of the most beautiful ingredients.
If you read the post and go ‘Ooh I’d like to try some of these products’ then we’ve got a cheeky little 10% off code you can use on full sized products – Just use the code ‘blog13’ at the checkout for your discount.
As well as the flannel we’ve got ‘splashy wash’, ‘fresh locks shampoo’, ‘cheeky cream’, ‘baba oil’, ‘spritz and wipe’ and ‘huggy lotion’ – I love the names, they’re all sensible enough that you know what they are but they’ve still got that cute, kiddy fun side to them too.
The ‘splashy wash’ has the most divine scent to it which is just what you want in this sort of product. The website lists that it is a 2-in-1 product and can be used for face and body but, thus far, we’ve used it for body only. It only took a small amount to cover my less than small, almost four-year-old and it lathered up a little as I rubbed it in. My favourite thing about this item is the scent, though, it was invigorating and just lovely.
The scent of lavender really comes through in the ‘fresh locks shampoo’ and it has a beautifully soothing effect, not that anything really works to soothe by boy but that’s because he’s a crazy pre-schooler and unless he’s asleep he’s not calm! The shampoo, though, lathered up beautifully and his hair was really really nice and clean after the wash.
Although the pot of ‘cheeky cream’ is only small I think it’ll last me ages as my boy doesn’t get nappy rash very often, but if your little one gets it more regularly then maybe it wouldn’t last you as long. This product can be used for the hands and face, too, but it was so good on the bottom that I think I’ll carry on using it for that. As luck had it Ethan had some soreness when we were trialling the set so I used the cream and the next morning it had all cleared up – The cream feels really think but it still sinks in Really nicely to the skin. It’s clear that the almond oil and shea butter have a great moisturising effect along side the beeswax and carnuba wax as a barrier – It did wonders for my boy.
|Very excited to be running a bath so that he can use his new bath things.|
|Bumps vastly reduced, a lot less redness and it’s SO much smoother and softer even on days that no cream or oil have been applied.|
