Halos N Horns Baby bath and Moisturising lotion
I hadn't herd of Halos N Horns before so when I was offered some to review I couldn't wait to try it out, I was also sent some really handy to know information from them so I will post it here for you,
Halos N Horns understands how hard it can be for mums when a new baby arrives, especially when it’s the first child. Looking after the delicate and sensitive skin of a new baby is just one of many things mum might worry about - so Halos N Horns has worked with its baby skincare advisor and award winning midwife, Sharon Trotter, to bring you some easy to follow, practical advice.
Try these top 10 tips for looking after your baby’s skin:
· Just use water on your baby’s skin for at least the first month, so the skin has a chance to mature and develop its own protective barrier.
· Remember to wash your hands before and after carrying out any care of your baby.
· Read the labels of any skincare products before you buy them, and avoid products containing sulphates (SLS / SLES), parabens and phthalates.
· To help ensure your baby doesn’t react to a new skincare product, before you start using it do a patch test on a small area of skin.
· Breastfeeding your baby can help strengthen their immune system so their skin is less likely to be affected by potential irritants.
· Don’t overload your washing machine! This will help prevent a build-up of chemical residues on clothing and bedding.
· Cloth nappies are as efficient as disposables and don’t give a higher risk of nappy rash - they are also kinder to the environment.
· Use a thin layer of barrier cream on your baby’s bottom to help protect against nappy rash developing - choose a cream free from preservatives, colours, perfumes, antiseptics, and ideally opt for a cream clinically proven to be effective in the treatment of nappy rash.
· Choose vegetable based moisturising lotions and massage oils, which are free from mineral oils and colours. If there is a history of nut allergies in your family you should also avoid nut-based oils. If you want to try baby massage, contact a qualified baby massage therapist and ask for their advice on suitable massage oils.
· In line with Cancer Research UK’s SunSmart code, babies under a year old should be shielded from direct sunlight with the help of parasols, wide-brimmed hats and UV buggy covers or beach pods. Sun protection creams should be used with great care and avoided altogether for at least the first six months of life.
I first tried out the Baby bath, It comes in a squeezy tube that was very easy to get out and smells really nice, The good thing with this is its not only a bubble bath but you can also use it as a body wash and shampoo, Its also kind to eyes and hypoallergenic, they also don't test there products on animals.
When my daughter got out of the bath not only did she smell nice but her hair was lovely and soft and her skin was soft to, Once she was dried I tested out the moisturising lotion again this has a really nice smell to it, The lotion soaks into the skin quick and doesn't leave a greasy or sticky feel to the skin and now my daughters skin feels lovely and soft.
