It has been a while since I have written one of these posts, sorry. Largely in part because I’ve been using the same products on Daisy for some time now but also because I’ve wanted to use/test these latest products for a while before reviewing them. Now she’s a bit older we have refined what we use on her but that’s not to say she doesn’t still have a regime that’s nearly as big as mine! It’s also not helped by my ongoing love of baby beauty products. While there are fewer products this time around, the ones I have included are truly brilliant, have made a significant difference and are definitely worth sharing. So here goes…
Epsoak Epsom Salts
First up are these Epsoak epsom salts for kids. I’ve been using Epsom Salts for a while now and although I don’t have much time to bathe much these days, when I do I always make sure to add them. I stumbled upon these during a wander around TK Maxx and instantly liked the look of them. Unsure whether to use the salts in Daisy’s bath I’ve never risked it but these are specifically made for children and benefit from lavender too to add extra sleepiness – far be it for me to turn down the opportunity of a good night’s sleep! They have made her skin really soft and most evenings after a bath with these she falls asleep before a book as we dry her hair! Suffice to say I think it certainly helps!
Can you see a theme emerging? Recently a combination of being too hot, overtired and with a side of FOMO has meant getting Daisy to bed is a struggle. So I have been enlisting the help of this and the Epsoak salts above to calm her down and so far so good! (Staying in her own bed all night has been a different matter entirely!). I spray it onto her pillow just before she goes to bed and it smells beautiful. I’ve no doubt it probably helps to calm us both down too making bedtime a more pleasant experience for everyone involved!
Next on the list is this detangling spray from British brand Dandydill Way. Daisy has been graced with beautiful hair that grows at an alarming rate and although she doesn’t have particularly knotty hair normally, it gets quite tangled after swimming or the bath which is where this lovely product comes in. Created by make-up artist and mum Tania Rodney, it works like a dream, makes brushing her hair effortless and the smell is incredible. It’s pricey but so worth it in my opinion and a little goes a long way.
If you’ve been following me for some time you’ll know this is not the first time I have praised Child’s Farm on my blog, I’m a big fan of the brand and we have used their products on Daisy since birth. When I saw on Instagram (naturally) that the brand had launched a roll on suncream it was music to my ears. During the infamous heatwave of ‘Summer 18’ this roll on has been a god send for a number of reasons. Perfect for sensitive skin, it hasn’t irritated her which I’ve always been fearful of with other creams. It also delivers a very high protection against UVA and UVB rays, is water resistant and the roll on design has made applying it so easy – Daisy was even able to help me without getting it everywhere which is a bonus.
Probably the most unglamorous product but arguably the most helpful. Daisy wasn’t a huge fan of bath seats and so we have actually used this bath mat for some time now and it’s become a must-have. Sticking to the bath, the bobbled bath mat prevents her from slipping and sliding about during bath time and this duck print is fun too.
I hope this has been helpful and I’d love to hear from you so if you have any suggestions that are good please share your tips and tricks.
*For babies with sensitive skin it is recommended that a patch tested is carried out on a small area of skin before applying any of these products
