This week I’ve fallen in love with a range of products for babies from Burt’s Bees called Baby Bee. The buttermilk soap, in particular, is totally addictive and will have you thinking up reasons to go and wash your hands or indeed your baby’s hands…It contains buttermilk, rich in emollients and natural fats which are ideal for sensitive and delicate skin, and oat flour – another great skin soother. It smells absolutely delicious: delicate, soft and sweet without being at all overpowering and feels particularly soft when you apply it on the skin. It’s designed for and loved by babies because of its smooth and gentle texture, but I’m actually sold on it myself…Also particularly delicious in the range is Burt’s Bees Baby Bee’s Shampoo and Wash, because we all love a multi-tasker, especially when we become mums and life becomes a bit of a juggling act! It’s a great product, gentle enough to use every day (it’s tear free and non irritating) and I love that it cleans both hair and body saving you the hassle of needing two products. Its formula includes sweet orange, lemon and coconut oils to create a nourishing and effective cleanser, but more importantly doesn’t contain phthalates, parabens, petrolatum, or SLS. It bubbles generously and leaves skin and hair soft, so much so that I’ve stopped using a conditioner too. If you’re looking for a gift for a new mum or you have children yourself this is a great range that ticks all the boxes: from the beautiful packaging to the subtle fragrance and texture, to the fact that the products are made with a lot of love, natural products and no nasties at all. All in all a winner range that I (and more importantly my much harder to please baby daughter) would thoroughly recommend.
