If you've been a regular reader of mine then you'll know that I'm now a mummy of two brilliant little baby boys. My eldest is two and a half and my youngest is just over 4 weeks old. One of the most important things for me is to make sure their skin is in the best condition, now by that I mean, protected and well moisturised. I have used the same brand for the last two and a half years, Johnsons to be precise. I've never had a single problem with any of their products but I got bored of using the same thing over and over and wanted to try something else. When I was contacted to try out the brand new La Roche-Posay Baby Skincare Range I was ecstatic to say the least. The perfect opportunity to try something different.
Ever since I received the range I've been using the products on Alfies skin every couple of days. I am yet to try them with Harrison as he is too young. Most of the skincare is suitable from 3 months onwards. Let's start with the Lipikar Baume AP+, my personal favourite from the range. It is classed as a moisturising balm, although I would say it's more of a lotion than a balm. It is slightly thicker in consistency. I use it on Alfie's skin every time he has a bath. Warm water can tend to strip the skin of it's natural oils which then makes his skin feel a little dry. The Lipikar Baume AP+ has been a dream to use as it completely restores the skin back to it's original state. After application it doesn't feel greasy in the slightest, it feels so soft and it soothes any irritations. I would really recommend this, especially if your child has eczema prone skin too. I say that but although it is part of the baby range, anyone can use it. It's suitable for all ages. The Lipikar Syndet AP+ is quite simply a body wash. It is free from parabens, soap and fragrance, which is to be expected from baby skincare as they can easily irritate a babys sensitive skin. It's also 100% hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic too. Formulated with ingredients such as glycerine and shea butter, you can easily see why this makes for a good body wash as they are great for hydrating the skin. It is so gentle too and it doesn't aggravate Alfies skin at all. It's really lovely to use, especially when used in combination with the Lipikar Baume AP+. When used together Alfies skin feels so wonderful. I can imagine he feels much more comfortable after I've used them on his skin. Now, the Thermal Spring Water I am quite familiar with as I like to use it as a cooling facial mist during the warm weather. I like to use it in that respect with Alfie too as his face can look quite flushed when it's warm. This completely soothes his skin and tones down any redness. I have also used it to cleanse his skin too, even in the nappy area as it's so gentle to use. I have used the Dermo-Pediatrics Baby Lotion for quite a while now. It's my favourite suncare lotion to use as it's so light in texture and soaks into the skin so quickly. That's what I love most about it as it doesn't stick to Alfies clothing, nor does it make him feel uncomfortable. It also has a high SPF of 50 so I can always be assured that his skin is protected from the sun, although it does need to be reapplied every couple of hours to maintain the protection. This is one of the products from the range that is only suitable for babies that are 6 months and over. Lastly is the Cicaplast Baume, a soothing repair balm which helps towards healing skin irritations such as chapped slips, dry skin, skin tightness, grazes and cuts. It can be used on the body, face and skin. Not only can it be used on babies, but again it is suitable for the whole family. It has a rather nice creamy, nourishing texture and a non-greasy finish. It is formulated with a number of ingredients that soothe, protect and repair the skin. Have you tried anything from the La Roche-Posay Baby Skincare Range?
