In conjunction with Sebamed
As a mum of three children finding time to maintain a decent skincare regime can be tricky and sometimes non-existent!
While I usually moisturise and cleanse my face every day, the rest of my body tends to be left to fend for itself, until I realise how dry my hands are and I suddenly pull out the moisturisers sitting on the bathroom shelf.
Recently, I was contacted by Sebamed to try out a range of their skincare and baby products. I thought it was a good chance to improve my skin condition while also trying out some skin products geared towards sensitive skin given that I have a recently turned one-year-old as well as a daughters with sensitive skin, including eczema. I also develop rosacea on the face from time to time, so I’m quite careful about which skin products I choose for me and my family.
**One of my lucky readers will also get the chance to try out the Sebamed range for themselves with a special mum and baby pack up for grabs – keep reading for more details!**
From the Sebamed range of cleaning, skincare and hair care products I got to try:
- Moisturising body lotion
- Liquid face and body wash
- Hand and nail balm
- Every-day shampoo
- Anti-dandruff shampoo
- Hair repair conditioner
- Moisturising cream (for the face)
- Healing and protective ointment.
- Anti-ageing Q10 protection moisturiser (for the face)
I also got to try several products from the Baby Sebamed range:
- Children’s shampoo
- Baby lotion
- Baby cream
- Protective facial cream
- Diaper rash cream
- Baby wash
- Baby Bubble Bath
- Baby cleansing bar.
Product information supplied by Sebamed states that all of its products are soap and alkali free with a pH of 5.5 – the same pH of healthy skin. Made in Germany, they are developed in conjunction with dermatologists, pharmacists and hospitals.
Some moisturisers we have tried in the past, even those for delicate skin, have still caused my daughters’ sensitive skin to sting upon application. Lucky for us, we didn’t experience this with the Sebamed range so were able to put these products to good use for this review over the past few weeks.
While I enjoyed all of the products, my favourites were the moisturising body lotion, which is able to be used by all members of the family (except I still prefer to use a specific baby moisturiser for my littlest one) and the hand and nail balm. I found all of the lotions and creams were absorbed well into the skin and had a lovely fragrance.
If I did have to mention one negative, it would be that the scent of the liquid face and body was a little too medicinal for my liking, reminding me of the acne facial scrubs I used as a teenager. But even so, it did leave my skin feeling rather smooth and soft.
Of all the products tried, I loved the Baby Sebamed range the most, in particular the baby bubble bath, children’s shampoo and baby lotion. It has a lovely soft ‘baby’ fragrance and there’s nothing better than snuggling with my little one after having a bath when she smells so clean and fresh. I wouldn’t hesitate in buying these baby products again.
