  • 2018 Shortlisted Best Product for a Newborn - 0-4 months
Mother & Baby 2018 Shortlist

At a glance:

A lovely, affordable moisturiser, with a clever little pump that makes holding your baby and rubbing in moisturiser easy. It doesn’t leave an oily residue and our panel of mum testers found it worked wonders on baby eczema. 

What they say:

“Our luxurious, award-winning moisturiser can be used all over the body for fresh-smelling, soft and hydrated skin. Containing shea and cocoa butter, it works like magic on grown-ups too. Apply twice daily to keep skin thoroughly moisturised, and irritation at bay. Suitable for newborns and upwards, dermatologist approved for sensitive and eczema-prone skin. All Childs Farm products offer a Happy skin promise™ from Childs Farm founder and mother of two, Joanna Jensen.” 

Tested by mum Jemma Foster for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this product to a friend or fellow mum because it is natural and great for baby's skin. It has cured all the little dry bits of skin behind the knees after just a couple of days. The moisturiser also rubs in really easily and doesn't leave any oily residue behind and the bottle is really easy to store and use as well.

How did the product make your life easier?

This product makes my life easier as a mum because the bottle gives just the right amount of moisturiser out of the pump to rub onto my baby, without there being lots of excess all over my hands. The bottle is easy to store and as it has a pump, which means that if it is knocked over, it doesn't matter and won’t spill. It also allows me to hold my baby and rub the moisturiser in with two hands, as there is no cap to take off or bottle to squeeze.

Would you choose this product to win?

I like the idea of this product due to it being free from lots of things that other moisturisers have, making it more natural. I also like the way the moisturiser rubs in without leaving any oily residue, so my baby can be picked up without me being concerned about her slipping through my fingers. However, I do like the smell of other moisturisers I have used. This moisturiser doesn't have much of a scent, and, when rubbed into my baby’s scalp, seemed to leave a funny smell the next day.

What changes would you make to the product?

If I could change one thing about this product it would be a description of how to use the bottle. My husband and I spent half an hour trying to get into the bottle and to begin with, I just pulled the pump part out of it to access the moisturiser. I'm not sure why it was so difficult to get into - perhaps I wound it the wrong way too many times!

Tested by mum Louise Fitzgerald for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would definitely recommend this product to a fellow friend or mum, as I feel it's great value for money. The product feels luxurious without having a luxurious price tag and the smell is perfect, not too overpowering, and compliments that 'new baby' smell. The product is really long lasting, as a little goes a long way.

How did this product make your life easier?

This product makes my life easier as a newborn’s skin is so sensitive and can easily dry out, and this quickly gets to work on moisturising and leaving my baby feeling soft and supple. It has a soothing effect on baby as the cream is so soft and quick absorbing, and a calming fragrance leaves my baby smelling like a 'baby'.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would choose this product above others as I love that it moisturises and sinks in to baby's skin without feeling greasy, unlike some other products I've used prior to this one. It clears up baby's dry skin quickly and without irritation, due to the 98% naturally derived ingredients. The smell is a real winner for me, as I love a baby to smell fresh and soft, and this product definitely does that.

What changes would you make to this product?

I personally wouldn't change anything about the product, but I know some mothers would prefer 100% natural ingredients to use on their baby, or, alternatively, the option of a fragrance free moisturiser, as although I absolutely love the smell, I know a lot of mums prefer to use fragrance free products on their newborns.

Tested by mum Rachel Marshall for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would definitely recommend this product to a friend or fellow mum. The product is easy to use and smells lovely, with just a hint of fragrance, meaning it isn’t too overpowering. It also leaves the skin feeling beautifully soft; no greasy residue left on skin and it isn’t sticky when applying. All told, it’s excellent quality at a very affordable price.

How did this product make your life easier?

This product is fantastic. I now use it on my whole family, not just my five-month-old! Even I have been using it. It is easy to apply, gliding over the skin, and isn’t sticky or greasy. The skin is touch dry in a few seconds, so there’s no waiting about for the moisturiser to soak in to the skin and dry before dressing them. It smells lovely too.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would definitely choose this product above all others on the market. The product is easy to use and apply, has a lovely, light and fragrant smell without being overpowering. Although it has a dense feel to it, it still feels light and fluffy. It glides across the skin, leaving skin beautifully soft with no stickiness or greasy residue on the skin after applying it.

What changes would you make to this product?

This product is fantastic as it is. I don’t personally think this product can be improved. The only minor thing I could mention is to perhaps have a range of sizes available. A larger container would be good, as I use this product on my five-month-old, my two-year-old, my five-year-old and myself. Other than that, this product is a perfect 10 all round!

Tested by mum Eleanor Harrison for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would, as it's a natural product at a reasonable price, while some of the organic baby products are just so expensive, this is priced well and you get a fairly big bottle for your money. I've used it on my son’s who have sensitive skin, with no problems at all.

How did this product make your life easier?

This is great! I love how the moisturiser comes in a pump style bottle, which saves any going to waste. It goes on to baby's skin (and mine!) and is absorbed really quickly, meaning you’re not left with that sticky feeling. The fact that it's 98% natural gives me confidence when applying it to baby's skin.

Would you choose this product to win?

I do think I would choose this to win a Mother & Baby award as it's a natural product and the packaging is really eye-catching and fun, drawing you to it. It's priced very well for what you get, is easy to use and feels nice on the skin. The lack of parabens and SLS only makes it more appealing, making it suitable from newborns. I would confidently use this on a brand-new baby's skin.

What changes would you make to this product?

There's not really anything that immediately stands out to me from this that could be changed, it really is a great all-round product. I think maybe if there was just one small this it would be to print that it's SLS and paraben free, 98% natural on the front of the packaging rather than the side, so it's immediately noticeable

Tested by mum Ranjeet Kumar for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this product to a friend or fellow mum as my baby has used this since birth and we haven’t had any issues with his skin. It has been kept soft and rash free alongside the Childs Farm bathing range.

How did this product make your life easier?

This product makes my life easier as a mum as it keeps my baby's skin feeling soft and supple every day, and in turn keeps him happy. I am able to relax, as I know there are no hidden ingredients in the product that will cause my baby harm. It isn’t strongly scented, is easy to apply, and my baby doesn't resist me putting it on.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would choose this product above all others as it is suitable from birth for all skin types and is from a reputable baby skincare brand. We have had no issues using this range from birth, whereas other mums I know have used different products and their babies have had skin problems, and have then had to try alternatives.

What changes would you make to this product?

If I could change one thing about this product it would be an easy close pump. Once the pump is open you cannot really twist it back, so it isn’t that suitable to carry about in a changing bag. One other thing I would change is the packaging – the newborn range is a bit dull, whereas the products for older children are more colourful.
