Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I really love this product. It smells lovely, is very easy to apply, makes my children's skin soft and has already, after only three days, helped with my youngest daughter's eczema and my son's dry skin. My eldest daughter, who is five, likes it so much that she has been inventing 'dry bits' to rub it into!

How did this product make your life easier?     

This product makes my life easier by helping soothe and improve my children's eczema and dry skin conditions in a natural and safe way. They are so much happier for being less itchy and it is really easy to apply and mess free. It has also helped me with dry skin on my hands without making them feel greasy.

Would you choose this product to win?

The ingredients are natural, it's well packaged, the lavender is very calming and it works! I also love the fact that is has multiple uses so saves space in my changing bag. So far I have used it on nappy rash, dry skin and eczema and the whole family (including my husband!) really like it.

What changes would you make to this product?

I'm not sure I would change anything about this product as I like it exactly the way it is. The only aspect that would put me off buying it is the price as it is quite expensive but as it is organic, this is understandable. Also the additional cost can be justified as it can be used for multiple purposes.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this because it is organic and contains no nasties. It comes in a lovely tube that is an ideal size for popping into a changing bag to take out for the day without it taking us masses of room. It is great on sore bottoms and dry skin or for those that suffer with eczema.    

How did this product make your life easier?     

This product makes my life as a mum much easier as I am no longer having to worry about what I am applying to my daughter’s skin. Having previously used a prescription cream for Eczema which was doing nothing to help and then switching to this we have really noticed the difference in only a few days. Her skin is much smoother and softer now. Happy baby equals happy mummy.

Would you choose this product to win?

It is rare to find something organic that doesn't break the bank and does actually do what it says it will. This cream is brilliant for sore bottoms and for those that duffer from eczema. I'd never have even thought to try something like this before but now I'm a convert.

What changes would you make to this product?

If I could change one thing about this product it would be to make the tube bigger without a price increase. Also maybe have a large tub of it so that the tubes can be used in changing bags and the tubs can be left at home for morning and night time. Other than this the product is 100% fantastic and shouldn't be changed

Tested by mum Emma Lander for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I like the scent and the feel on my skin. It is not too greasy as similar creams can be. It is more of an ointment than a cream and is useful for so many things. The packaging is simple and attractive. I have used it on myself, my baby and my older child and we have all enjoyed using it. It is in a similar price bracket to competing creams.

How did this product make your life easier?     

With space at a premium in most people's houses. I like the fact that it has a variety of uses. We used it for nappy rash, dry skin and cradle cap on the baby. Dry skin and grazes on my daughter and for dry skin on myself. It is also great for applying to knees and elbows before applying fake tan!

Would you choose this product to win?

I would choose it as it is organic which really appeals, it smells lovely and really does the job and more. It is priced at the lower end of the bracket and a little really does go a long way. It absorbs really well into the skin and you can actually see the protective layer it leaves-even after washing your hands.

What changes would you make to this product?

I think the packaging would benefit from a facelift. Maybe making it a little more pastel with little baby characters on it. I know this may be personal opinion. With it being made by the Green People I just think pastels would go with the image more. Only on the green and the orange writing. Also I'd move the organic percentage to the back unless it is 100 per cent.

Tested by mum Sophie Greenaway for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I would recommend this as I feel it is good value for money and works well. I tried this on a dry patch of skin on my own hand and it cleared it almost immediately. I have also been using it for cradle cap and have felt it has helped a little already. It's in an easy squeeze tub which also helps.

How did this product make your life easier?     

This makes life easier as a mum as it is in a tube so is easy to squeeze out and you only need a small amount, a little goes a long way, this means I don't need to keep going out and buying products which haven't lasted as long. It's not a large product either so is small enough to put away in a changing bag for quick and easy use.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would definitely choose this product above all others. The fact you don't need a lot really appeals to me as I've found some things I have used for cradle cap and dry skin I have needed to apply quite frequently for it to help but with this I only need a small amount and only apply twice a day, if that.

What changes would you make to this product?

If I could change something about this product it would be to have one that wasn't scented, although the product works really well and others may enjoy the smell I don't like the lavender smell so this puts me off slightly, but not enough not to use it. I also prefer creams over oils and this is quite greasy once applied.

Tested by mum Anna Smith for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I would definitely recommend this product to the parent of any child with dry skin or skin problems. My son doesn't have especially dry skin, but after using this product there was a noticeable softness to his skin. When I applied it, I was worried it may leave an oily layer on his skin, but it really didn't. All that was left was lovely soft skin.

How did this product make your life easier?     

All nappy creams I've used in the past, either come in a tub with a twist lid or a tube with a twist lid. When you're dealing with a wriggly baby, you just want to be able to flip the lid open, squeeze out the amount want and shut it again all with one hand. With this soothing baby salve, that's exactly what you can do.

Would you choose this product to win?

I like the versatility of the product. I used it as a nappy cream, but it also worked wonders on my hands and cuticles! The organic nature of the product makes me feel that I am using a gentle yet effective product.

What changes would you make to this product?

I really can't think of anything that could be done to improve the product. It's lovely. It smells nice, the consistency is lovely, the packaging is appealing. It leaves a nice non greasy softness after application that last for a considerable amount of time. In fact, I think I've found a new favourite for the Smith family household!
