My boys both have very sensitive skin, Finley will goes blotchy so easily and Noah suffers with eczema. At the moment Noah's skin is ok with only a few patches of eczema on his shoulders, teething used to flare it up and with all his teeth now through I am hoping that was the only trigger.
When I received an email asking me to review some products from Bennetts I jumped at the chance. We are always looking for skin care products for the boys to help control their skin, we do have prescribed products but I would prefer not to use highly antibiotic creams all the time. The products that they thought would be great for us was the Aqueous Cream and Aqueous Bath Drops. We don't normally put anything in the boys bath so I was looking forward to giving them a try.
Here's a little bit about Bennetts:
'Established over 50 years ago, the Bennetts range has been formulated by a pharmacist, helping to care for you and your baby. Bennetts for Babies is the best-selling baby care product in South Africa, keeping your baby happy and healthy and is currently available in the UK at independent pharmacists, Amazon, Morrisons, ASDA, Superdrug.com and soon to be found in other major retailers.'
The products arrived very quickly and we couldn't wait to start using them. We have now been using them for 2 weeks and love them!
We started off with the Bath Drops in the boys bath that evening. I was pleased to see that it didn't make the water oily as that is one thing I hate with some bath products because they then make the boys skin all slippery when they come out of the bath. The drops make the bath a little cloudy which is to be expected when your adding an aqueous product to the bath. The drops are described as fragrance free and that they are.
The Bath Drops retail at £3.99 and this is great value. As I said we have been using them for 2 weeks now and the boys have a bath every night and there is still half the bottle left. You put a few drops in the bath and that is enough.
After the bath we applied the aqueous cream to both boys. We don't plaster them in it we put it on the areas in which they suffer with their skin. With Noah as I said it is the tops of his arms and after using the cream for two weeks it has softened up the skin and made it not so dry. With Finley he suffers from dry skin on the tops of his arms and legs, after applying for two weeks they have also softened up.
The cream is not greasy and like the bath drops is fragrance free. Some creams can leave their skin all slippery but thankfully this cream doesn't. The aqueous cream retails at £3.99, it is a huge tub and as long as you don't use to much on each application it will last you a good while. We still have loads left.
I was really impressed with both products and we will continue to use them. I would recommend these products to anyone with children that have skin problems, they are also good just to maintain good skin in children and adults.
Bennetts also sell baby bum cream, baby burn cream, nipple cream and a lot more. There is something for everyone whether you are pregnant, have a baby or an older child. Check out their website for more products and details.
