Mother & Baby 2018 Shortlist

At a glance:

Our panel of mum testers loved the Dove Sensitive Baby Range, often using the products on themselves as they were so fragrant and moisturising. The top to toe wash was a standout product, lathering well, smelling great and meaning you only need one product in your bathroom.

What they say:

“Give your baby head-to-toe care with the Baby Dove Rich Moisture range. From baby body wash to baby lotions, it goes beyond mildness to help keep your little one’s delicate skin, hair and scalp healthy. In the first year of your baby’s life, their skin is delicate – so delicate that it’s about 30% thinner than our own. This means that your little one needs head to-toe moisturising care to help keep their skin, scalp and hair looking and feeling healthy. That’s why we created our Rich Moisture range. With fragrances designed especially for baby skin, every product provides gentle care and a delicate, comforting scent for your baby.”

Would you recommend this to other mums?

The range of products covers all aspects of baby skin care which is fab to keep baby used to one type of brand. They also do some products in sensitive which was great too. My favourite product was the head to toe wash which lathered up lovely, smelt great and left my son with lovely soft skin. The wipes were a definite close second, as again they smelt lovely but also were a great quality compared to other wipes on the market that tear easy. Overall, the whole range is awesome and definitely worth a look as an alternative to more traditional brands.

How did this product make your life easier?

The products helped make my life easier in terms of caring for my son's skin. Once I had tested the products for about ten days, I soon knew that they could be trusted and therefore relieved me of any worries I had about using products on baby's skin. That in itself made my mummy decision-making easier. I will definitely be sticking to this range now.

Would you choose this product to win?

The product range should win and be chosen above all other ones on the market, as the quality of the products was just so high and the results were amazing. My son was really starting to suffer with dry skin before using Dove, but now his is back to his newborn softness and silky to the touch. The fragrance used in these products is so delicate yet comforting!

What changes would you make to this product?

I absolutely loved using Dove Baby, but if I had to be critical I would change the price of some of the more expensive products in the range to make them applicable to all budgets.  As wipes were my favourite product in the range, I think I would change the pack size to more than 50 as I felt like the packet ran out very quickly.

Tested by mum Catherine Busfield for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend the wipes for their smell, size and their thickness. They dealt easily with my baby boy's mess. At meal times their thickness means that I only need to use one or two, whereas with other brands I've needed four or five to deal with the mess. The shampoo and lotion with the pumps, whilst a good feature at home, means that they did spill when transporting which wasn't ideal.

How did this product make your life easier?

Dove is a brand I know so it gives me confidence that it is of a good quality. The pump on the top of the shampoo and lotion makes using it very easy and quick, which is important at bath time as we often have to deal with tired meltdowns and speed is of the essence! The wipes are of a good quality so it's good to know I can rely on them to deal with all types of spills and messes.

Would you choose this product to win?

Whilst the wipes are of a good quality, the top of the packet only has a sticky label seal – this isn't as good as some of the other brands which had a lid which clicks on. Not only is the latter more baby proof for when they want to play with them, it also preserves the wetness of the wipes. I would recommend the shampoo and lotion as the former lathers well and the pump action head is a good feature, as long as you're not transporting it. I do prefer a baby lotion with lavender or something a little more soothing at night time, but the smell was good nonetheless.

What changes would you make to this product?

I would change the opening on the baby wipes to a more secure plastic lid which clicks into place. The current seal is a bit messy and doesn't actually seal the product inside. Making it a clickable lid would result in less waste.

Tested by mum Natalie Greenbank for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

The smell, the feel, it is just a lovely, luxurious product that not only is kind to baby’s skin, but is also lovely on mum’s skin. We live in a smallish cottage so maximising space is essential, now I'll only have to buy one set of wash products to look after us all! The range is perfect for sensitive skin and comes in easy to use packaging.

How did this product make your life easier?

It is beautifully presented in nice packaging and there is a product fit for every purpose. Each product smells absolutely divine, my daughter is a sicky baby so it’s nice to be able to give her a wet wipe wash when we’re out and about and not have to worry about her smelling of sick!

Would you choose this product to win?

Absolutely yes! I was pleasantly surprised as when I used it on baby – she smelt beautiful, was beautifully soft and when I used it on my own skin it felt so luxurious! I will definitely be using this product from now on!

What changes would you make to this product?

The wipes are slightly dryer than your average high street brand wipe. Perhaps this isn’t such a bad thing as it does mean that baby’s skin isn’t too vulnerable to skin problems. I would also prefer an easier pump on the head to toe wash, it looks great but isn’t the most generous. Also, I would like a bubble bath product please Baby Dove!

Tested by mum Kerry Young for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this product to another mum and friends who have got kids of all ages as I have noticed that since using it on my seven-month-old, her skin has become so much softer and smoother. The nappy cream has made the rash on her bottom completely disappear. I also used the body wash on my nine-year-old as she had really spotty skin at the top of her arms which has now completely gone. The shampoo on the baby’s head has nearly gotten rid of her cradle cap. Fab products

How did this product make your life easier?

The Dove range for babies is a fabulous range as you can get all products that you need for a baby. The bottles they come in are small enough to pack into your nappy bag or sleepover bag and they are secure enough that they do not leak. We took them away with us and it hardly took up any room. The nappy cream is amazing too.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would now use these products above any other. When the products first came out I was not impressed with the price but since using them, I would definitely carry on buying them for the whole family. Not only do the products make the skin really soft and the bottom free from redness, they also smell beautiful – I couldn't recommend them enough.

What changes would you make to this product?

The only downside with the products is the bottle top. It's pretty hard when you have the baby in the bath and your trying to pump the bottle to get stuff out with one hand and would be easier if it was a pour out bottle instead. Apart from that the whole range is fabulous and smells lovely.

Tested by mum Dionne Atkin for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this product to mums as it was very easy and convenient, also they smell good and the texture was great. I thought they were great value and also brilliant price when on offer. I felt like any league of mums could use this product as the price was so good it. I love how small they are, a good handy size.

How did this product make your life easier?

They come in a wonderful variety suitable for all babies’ needs and skin types. I personally would prefer a pump rather than a cap, so that they are easier to pick up. I loved the fact that the sensitive range still made my baby's skin really soft and smelt great without irritating his eczema prone skin.

Would you choose this product to win?

I loved trialling Dove, I hadn't ever tried it as I was previously using another baby product on the market for sensitive skin but was very expensive, so I'm so glad I've found Dove sensitive and I'll continue to use it.

What changes would you make to this product?

If I could change something about the product it would be to add a pump for ease when bathing my baby, I would also like large bottles for home as you go through the little one very quickly especially when weaning and you're washing them more often than not.
