A baby’s first year of life is when their skin is at its most vulnerable, so it makes sense that you invest in quality products that you know are going to care for your bubba’s delicate epidermis. Having worked in the baby industry for a while now, I am deeply versed in the world of pregnancy, birth and bubs. So, from my ‘insider knowledge’, here are my favourite three brands for giving your little one’s skin the best start to life.
AVEENO® Baby range
Most of you will know Aveeno for its quality women’s skin care range. I use AVEENO® Active Naturals Positively Radiant Eye Illuminator everyday to con everyone in to thinking I am a morning person. So, I would absolutely recommend the AVEENO® Baby range for any young guns’ skin. Not only is the range lush and inexpensive, but it also uses colloidal oatmeal to protect, soothe and reduce discomfort to your little one.
Top picks:AVEENO® Baby Soothing Relief Moisture Cream Fragrance Free and AVEENO® Baby Soothing Relief Creamy Wash.
I was a Johnson + Johnson Baby. In fact: my whole family were (even my cousins). The smell epitomises childhood to me and is on constant repurchase in my beauty cupboard (shhh… that’s my little secret to smoothe, sweet-smelling legs), so I know from personal usage that it’s a range that offers your skin protection and suppleness.
Johnson’s has most definitely come a long way since my heyday, and has become even more quintessential with the introduction of its Top-to-Toe range: a range ‘mild as pure water’, that was formulated for newborn bubs’ eyes and skin. Throw it in your trolley next time you’re roaming the aisles of the supermarket.
Top picks: Johnson’s baby Top-to-Toe bath and Johnson’s baby Bedtime Lotion.
Milk & Co Baby
Quality and organic ingredients don’t get any better than the Milk & Co Baby range, founded by Lindy Klim. Lindy says: “I wanted to create a product that was affordable, looked good in the home and that was beneficial to the enhancement of wellbeing.”
And she has done this in spades. Giving your baby the best start to life is a mother’s ambition, but sadly it isn’t always achievable. Milk & Co Baby allows just this, with its use of natural ingredients that protect your little one’s skin from the elements, and enables them to have to soothed, fresh skin; always, and at a supermarket price point.
