Baby Buys that do Double
Scandalous news, everybody. It appears the under two crowd has been holding out on us. Not only are they adept at finding two day old bread hidden beneath a merin burberry handbags o throw, and causing feline family members heart palpitations by sneaking up behind them and shrieking in unrestrained joy at the magic of a furry tail swaying in the breeze, they are also privy to an array of products that make rather excell burberry handbags ent additions to the beauty bag of the over two (or ahem over 25 burberry handbags ) crowd.
I’ve written previously about discovering that fragrance free baby wipes make the perfect makeup removers (try Johnson’s Baby Fragrance Free Cloth Wipes, $5.98, from pharmacies, or my new favie, Wotnot Baby Wipes, $7.95, from pharmacies and health stores). So soft, so gentle, so thick! So it really shouldn’t come as any surprise that they are only the tip of a large, often pastel coloured, iceberg of prodz that have the word ‘baby’ somewhere on the label but are just as awesome for us grown ups.
My foray into the land of baby wipes led me neatly to a little grey pot that may be designed for infant bottoms, but works even better burberry handbags on pesky pimples. I grabbed a tub of Sudocrem, from pharmacies, while nicking some wipes from my son’s room, when I realised I had a whopper of a blemish on my chin and not much I could do about it.
I had eschewed traditional treatments while pregnant so there wasn’t a pimple slaying pen in sight. Noting the ingredients in the thick white paste, I realised it had a high zinc content and history was made. Zinc is fabulous for zapping zits and while you may look like a swamp creature crossed with an acne ridden ghost, the results are definitely worth it.
As any new mother will tell you, sleep becomes a hot topic of conversation after having a baby, usually preceded by the words ‘I haven’t had any’. Due to the slightly manic reaction a severe lack of sleep evokes in your average human, a whole bunch of prodz have been developed to try and convince your tiny human that sleep is actually amazeballs and worth trying out for more than three hours at a time.
I ran out of shower gel a month or so back and after groping around blindly (I was sans contacts at the time I’m lucky I didn’t end up lathering up with the cat), ended up wrapping my paws around The Aromatherapy Co. Baby Therapy Hair and Body Wash, $16.95,1800 104 029.
Infused with organic lavender it helps promote relaxation and sleep, and while I can generally sleep slumped over the unfortunate businessman sitting next to me on the bus, it can sometimes take me a little while to unwind of an evening. Turning my 300 year old brown tiled shower into an oasis of serenity and relaxation is no easy task but this body wash manages it. And being that it’s formulated for super sensitive baby skin, means it doesn’t dry you out like some body washes tend to do. It’s even lured me away from the heavenly smelling Aveeno Active Naturals Baby Wash and Shampoo, $10.99, from pharmacies (haven’t indulged in a whiff of this stuff? Go out this very second, find a bottle and inhale its scent. It is honestly too delicious.)
The final discovery that has changed the weight of my hand bag for the better (because I no longer need quite as much stuff)? Everything balm. I’m partial to Trilogy Everything Balm, $18.95, from Myer and selected pharmacies, because, as the name says, it does everything. Forget the eight different prodz I usually stash in my nappy bag for my son and me. This opaque tub replaces them all. Dry lips, ragged cuticles, cuts, grazes, sore bottoms nothing is too much effort for this beautiful balm. What a little champion!
