At a glance:

The award-winning mildly fragranced baby moisturiser from skincare brand Childs Farm protects and hydrates your baby's soft and delicate skin. It's suitable for all skin types including those with eczema. Your baby's skin will never feel so silky smooth. 

How did this product make your life easier?

Leanne: It's a light moisturiser that isn't too heavily fragranced. I have used it for both my babies and it leaves skin nice and soft. It's easy to dispense with one hand and isn't greasy. It can use more than once a day and doesn't stain clothes. A good general all-over moisturiser for after your little one's bathtime.

Kirsten: This was very easy to use on my baby. The pump dispenser made it easy to use with one hand which is very useful with a wriggly baby and much better than having to squeeze a tube or open a jar. He has some dry skin and this worked really well without being overly greasy and it seemed to absorb really well.

Becky: The pump action bottle is great, you can use one-handed while ensuring you have a firm hold of your baby still. I’ve used it in the bathroom and got it wet, the packaging is waterproof which means the label did not get destroyed in the wet. It’s not too big so it's easy to transfer around the house from room to room while carrying the baby. Its slim bottle allowed me to easily fit it in our nappy bag and we took it out and about with us. I have used it all over, body, and bum! I have used it as a bum cream for my baby when it’s not sore but needs a bit of TLC. It’s great for everything. 

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Jennifer: The cream worked very quickly on a sore bit of my baby’s skin, making it moisturised and less red within the first day. The scent was ok and the cream was absorbed well without leaving a greasy residue. It left no marks on the baby’s clothes as it was absorbed quickly. I would also recommend this product because it is cruelty-free, good value for money and easy to buy locally and online.

Sharon: Child Farm's moisturising cream is a lifesaver when your little one's got some dry skin or even eczema patches. Its gentle fragrance is soothing and reassuring, its texture is light, and fully absorbed when rubbed in, unlike some other similar products. It is widely available in supermarkets across the country, which makes life a lot easier when you've already got 101 other things to be doing! And at £4.50 you can't go wrong!

Kirsten: I would recommend this as the price is very reasonable considering the product contains what appears to be a list of natural, organic and nonharmful ingredients. It does not have an overpowering smell so my older children were also happy to use this cream and like the fact that it absorbed quickly before they put clothes on.

Would you choose this product to win?

Leanne: Yes and I have been buying this cream before I got asked to review it for the past few years since I had my first child. I use it after bathtime usually every night. I have used it on my second baby for this review and he has delicate skin with eczema. He has been fine with it. I think it would be worthy of winning.

Becky: Taking all things into account this product must definitely be a strong contender if not the winner. It is a fantastic, affordable product with great results. The product was easy to rub in and easily absorbed into the skin, it left the skin smooth if a little tacky to touch for a couple of minutes. I waited a few minutes after application before dressing the baby to ensure it had been fully absorbed.

Jennifer: I would choose this product over others in the market because it works really really well to moisturise my baby’s skin and soothe it quickly. Its value for money is good, and I really like the cruelty free and vegan aspect. This feel is really important in my decision making when buying any products. It is also very important that the ingredients are naturally derived, the fewer chemicals the better!

What changes would you make to this product?

Kirsten: Like many people nowadays I am very aware of my plastic use. I would, therefore, be keen to have more information on the bottle with regards to how to recycle it, whether all components are recyclable and made out of recycled products. Also, a larger size bottle would be good for use on all of the family and therefore reducing the amount of total plastic.

Jennifer: I would like the bottle to have a bigger base, and for it to be shorter. This is due to the product’s stability on the floor or side when using it with one hand. Although the product is easy to use at the moment, it would be improved by making the bottle shorter with a bigger base. The scent of the product could be improved.

Leanne: Not really anything. The packaging is nice and simple. It isn't overpriced and is often on offer. It is light and suitable for vegans and sensitive skin so can be used regularly. It isn't greasy or heavily fragranced which are qualities I do not like in baby products. It leaves skin feeling soft.
