Super Baby Oil

Super Baby Oil – the best baby oil, for super healthy baby skin.

After years of tweaking I believe, I have created the best ever baby oil I have made to date!!
Going by the results of use on my son, myself and from its brilliant customer feedback.

Its 100% natural and organic, with a delicious scent of Plum Kernel oil (all oils in it are organic cold pressed, GM FREE food grade oils).
If you have a baby or child with dry skin or mild eczema its very worth a try. It also simply a beautiful massage oil for babies and adults alike. You can also use it as a a dry skin oil for yourself, especially on the legs. I use it on my hands and my dermatitis has stayed away, yay!

Organic, vegan sunblock – without white streaks!

Made by Yaoh

I have been using this sunblock on my face & on my son who is 22 months and has bad eczema. Its very good as its easily absorbed. My son has had no adverse reaction to it and it even seems to help his eczema a little. It leaves no whiteness, it rubs in easily and has not given me spots like most sunscreens do. BRAVO! Go and buy it i say. But do use it up as its natural ingredients give it a 6 month from opening life span. Its about £10.

Pregnancy skin care

Its very important to take care to use very natural skincare during pregnancy, because it is thought that we can absorb around 60% of harmful chemicals through the skin into the body. Therefore they could possibly be in some way damaging to the baby.

For this reason I chose to use only natural skin care during my pregnancy. Faithfully I used my soothe-me 100% natural & organic bump & boobs oil everyday from 12 weeks. Its a great natural product designed to support the skin during its time of belly s t r e t c h i n g!

I have just a few very small marks under my belly button and that is it. I am clearly very lucky and I know that genetics help too (my mum does not have any). But I DO BELIEVE the natural oil helped support and nourish my skin while it was expanding, helping strengthen and nourish the skin cells to prevent marks from appearing badly.

I have had excellent feedback from all my customers and pregnant friends that used it, some are actually still using it as a body and even face oil! I can make a special 250ml VALUE BOTTLE to order, email me – suzie@soothe-me.com

I am make bespoke products and have a great ‘Healing Oil’ that can help to heal scars and damaged skin.
I only make this to order 100ml £12.99.

Stretchmarks  in general – is there a cure?

Other good products are Mama Mio pregnancy and stretchmark products.

Revitol – I have not used or spoken with anyone who has used this but I have heard about it and its all over the internet

Natural sun screen for babies & kids

Of course when its sunny I put firstly put a sun hat on my little son (10 months 3 weeks at time of blog). I do also keep him out of direct sun between 12am and 3pm, but there are clearly times when sunblock is needed.

I thought I would share my search for a good non allergic natural sunscreen, that is good for my sons very pale and very sensitive skin. I was using a SPF30 for children by Dr Hauschka but they are stopping making it, (but to be honest it was rather pricey for a new mum at around £29 quid), also stayed very white on the skin. I think £15 is more than enough to pay so will be aiming to find products under that.

Below are some I have found worth trying:

I am going to start with this one as its a spray and I think that will be easier to use. LAVERA Sun screen SPRAY Kid & Babies SPF 25 £16.50 to £14
some good offers for it are on this website Calm n comfy

SPF25 Childrens Sun Lotion – Lavender (150ml) £14 by Green People
Organic Children Range, water-resistant, SPF25, 150ml £13.99
Very good value Jason Earth’s Best Chemical Free Sunblock SPF
