AFTER 15 minutes of pampering, courtesy of the good people at miniOrganics, this tired, sleep-deprived body is feeling totally refreshed. Ahhh. Not to mention, my skin feels as smooth and soft as a baby’s bottom. My baby’s bot, anyway.
I’ve always been sceptical of products branded “organic’’, but closer inspection of miniOrganics reveals these guys are the real deal. In fact, it can boast the world’s first fully certified organic skincare range for babies and new mums. If only I’d know about it back when I was pregnant with Princess Ella.
I could go on about the award-winning products using the purest ingredients and it being developed by a mum, but what’s grabbed my attention most is each product’s multiple uses.
Here’s what I’ve been lucky enough to try:
SUPERFINE JOJOBA: Sprinkling this in the li’l princesses’ bath left their skin so silky. OTHER USE: It can also be used to relieve dry, itchy skin; as baby massage oil; nail treatment; shaving balm for men; moisturiser for teenagers with acne prone skin; and wait for it, an eye make-up remover for Mum. Genius!
CALMING AND HYDRATING MIST: Baby Holly’s had this one sprayed on her bot more than a few times now. OTHER USE: You can spritz it in the air to calm a cranky baby (hello, over this way) and as a soothing stress relief for mum (again, in this direction!).
INFANT MOISTURISER: After bath-time, I’ve been massaging Holly with this one, primarily because it’s infused with lavender and chamomile. Ah, sleep. OTHER USE: For anyone with sensitive skin.
NOURISHING BODY OIL: I was fortunate to score a massage from the bloke in The Shed using this oil. He, who doesn’t really know one product from the next, commented on it being the first oil to not leave his hands greasy. OTHER USE: Ideal for conditioning and supporting the skin during the demanding later months of pregnancy, helping to minimise the appearance of stretch marks.
NIPPLE BALM: I’ve now been blessed with my second problem-free breastfeeder, so haven’t had to try this one for its primary purpose. OTHER USE: Cleverly, this one doubles as a super moisturising lip balm, so it’s definitely not going to waste.
There’s also the 3-Step Prescription (combining Calming Mist, Superfine Jojoba and Infant Moisturiser), which is an all-natural, non-steroidal approach to easing discomfort from dry skin conditions such as eczema. Baby Holly had quite dry skin on the tops of her toes and this combination got rid of it instantly.
The range also includes Gentle Baby Wash, Gentle Baby Soap and Soothing Nappy Balm for bub and Enriched Moisturiser for mums and mums-to-be.
