Mother & Baby 2018 Shortlist

What we say:

Our panel of mum testers really appreciated the 2 in 1 action of this product as there was no need to buy separate bottles for hair and body washing. The lotion was very gentle and in a few cases, completely cleared up eczema. The scent-free nature divided our panel of mum testers, but proves this product really is all natural.

What they say:

“Sometimes giving a baby a bath can do more harm than good, especially when they are sensitive and prone to eczema. Skinfix introduces Gentle Hair & Body Wash, a mild and gentle formula that cleanses baby’s delicate skin and hair. Sulphate free and fragrance free, this 2-in-1 formula uses natural botanical based cleansers that are tear-free and won’t strip away skin’s natural moisture or irritate.”

Tested by mum Kayleigh Halls for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this product as it is easy to use as it comes in a squeeze tube which is ideal when you are trying to hold on to a slippery baby in the bath! It is convenient as it is a shampoo and body wash combined. It is gentle on skin so you don't need to worry about it drying out your baby's skin. The tube is also quite big so I feel like it is good value for money.

How did this product make your life easier?

It is a shampoo and body wash combined which is convenient for a few reasons. Firstly, I can wash my daughter in the bath quicker, and the tube takes up less space at home and when packing to take away on holiday. It would be easier to buy in the shop as it is just one product - you don't need to look for a separate shampoo and body wash that would be suitable for a baby with sensitive skin or eczema.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would not choose to use this product over others on the market for a few reasons. Firstly, there are other brands on the market which are also designed to be suitable for babies with sensitive skin or eczema that are slightly cheaper. I was also put off this product because it is unscented, the brand I usually use (Childs Farm) is scented. I felt the body wash smelt a little plastic-like to me which put me off.

What changes would you make to this product?

The main thing I would change about this product would be to make it scented, as I said previously there are other similar products on the market which are scented and I prefer them as they leave my daughter's hair smelling nice.

Tested by mum Kirsty Haining for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would yes as I found it particularly easy to control being a squeezy tube. The scent-free element is actually pretty accurate, rather than the very chemically scented stuff used in most baby products. It is nice having something designed to be squeezed into a cloth whilst controlling a wee one in the bath and the shiny packaging also provides good distraction.

How did this product make your life easier?

It is good to have a hair and body wash designed for extra sensitive skin. The squeezy tube is also a good design for ease of use at bath time. Being able to just use one product rather than separate bath and hair ones is good while trying to contain a wiggly infant. It is nice having something that doesn't have a strong scent.

Would you choose this product to win?

Not necessarily, as personally I prefer mild scents rather than a complete absence of them, but at least it does what it says on the tin - mild and scentless. I find separate products better with a sleepy scent in the bath, but I would definitely consider getting this product again.

What changes would you make to this product?

The lid collects quite a lot of water which is common in the flip top screw on lid variety. While this isn't a game changer it is something to be cautious of, especially if the tube lives in the bathroom while other family members are having showers. Beyond that, perfectly happy with design and quality.

Tested by mum Samantha Stocks for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this product to anyone as this is very good value for money. I would also recommend it to mums if their baby is prone to or has eczema. This product has left my son's body and hair silky smooth and he also seems more relaxed and less itchy, not like most other products that haven’t provided him with any relief.

How did this product make your life easier?

As a mum this product has made my life easier because my son is prone to eczema and this has helped significantly. My son now has silky hair and skin. I have used this product myself and it's made my skin really soft and fresh and I will definitely be buying this product again in the future.

Would you choose this product to win?

I have been searching for different products for my son as he has eczema and this product has helped greatly and is also great value for money. Most products on the market are expensive and don’t work which can be frustrating. For this reason, I would choose this product over everything else.

What changes would you make to this product?

I wouldn't change this product as the design is really nice and the shape of the bottle too. This product is good value for money so I wouldn't change that either - everything about this product is brilliant and I would highly recommend to anyone!

Tested by mum Molly Hall for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I've been at my wits end trying to find a product to help my nine-month-old baby’s skin. She's constantly covered in rashes and nothing has worked. With one wash from the hair and body wash, her entire body was clear and so soft – I was amazed. Her skin was so patchy and rough before using this product and since testing this for the Mother & Baby awards, it's become our night time routine. It's so gentle to the skin and also very cooling, so it can be used to soothe her skin. I've even been using it myself and people have been commenting how great my skin looks. The product itself is also so practical, with it being both a body and a hair wash it eliminates the need to use several products on your baby's skin. It's honestly so worth the price tag, my bottle has almost run out and I will be on my way to buy another straight away - absolutely brilliant!

How did this product make your life easier?

When using it at bath time it is unbelievably practical. Because it is both a hair and body wash, you only have to use one product on your baby's sensitive skin, which means a lot more time splashing about and bonding with your baby! It treated my daughter's awful rashes and has also helped to prevent them, so she's so much more comfortable now, which of course makes life easier for the both of us as a happy baby makes a happy mama!

Would you choose this product to win?

Definitely! It's so gentle to baby's skin. And I've never seen anything work so well to treat rashes in 12 hours. This product should definitely win a Mother & Baby award!

What changes would you make to this product?

It would have been nice if it was a bit more affordable, after looking at the price of the item online I must admit, I would now only pay that price after seeing first-hand how brilliantly it works. If I were a new consumer looking for something to try, this would definitely be further down my list because of the price.

Tested by mum Victoria Stokes for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this product to other mums for babies that are prone to sensitive skin as it worked really well on my daughter. She was left with lovely smooth skin and it was nice knowing that I have used natural products with no harsh chemicals. It is also handy being a two in one product as it keeps costs down.

How did this product make your life easier?

This product makes my life easier as a mum due to the dual purpose of the product - combining both body and hair wash means I don't have to fiddle around getting other bottles whilst holding my baby. The feel of it on my baby’s skin is lovely, both during and after a bath, especially as we bath daily. It's very gentle.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would choose this product over others on the market as it uses natural products that are kind to my daughter’s skin. The one thing that stands out for me is the ease of use of not needing any other lotions as this will do both hair and body. The cost is high but you definitely pay for the quality in both the ingredients and the product itself. I would highly recommend this product to fellow mums as it is a lovely product

What changes would you make to this product?

If I could change one thing about the product it would be the smell. The product itself was lovely but I feel maybe a natural fragrance would make this product standout by miles. It left my daughter’s skin feeling soft but there was no after baby bath smell compared to other products on the market. This really is a lovely product and apart from scent it is perfect.
