Hi everyone! It’s been ages since I’ve blogged but my energy has been focused elsewhere; two kids under two will do that! I’ve also been doing a lot of work with my social media consulting clients, which has been so interesting. I’m really enjoying working with companies and businesses of all sizes, and I can’t wait for all the exciting projects to come on that side of things.
That being said, I’ve so missed blogging! Writing is fun, cathartic – it’s a natural way for me to express my thoughts and share what goes on in my life. On that note, I’m currently packing for our upcoming vacation, and I just had to share the first things I put aside to pack.
Love Boo, a natural skincare range for babies and moms, started coming up on my Instagram feed through some other U.K. bloggers that I follow. As I mentioned in the last few posts, I have been trying to use more natural and organic products. What we put on our skin and on our children’s skin is important; our skin is our largest organ. Love Boo products are all nasty-free (see photo below) – YAY! You can read more about founders Jennifer Gledhill and Corinna Labrosse’s story here, and if you love a good how-they-did-it interview like I do, head on over here.
George has a few patches of eczema, so I’m careful with the products we use for him, and as a rule, I’m very reluctant to put anything on Ralph’s skin since he’s still so little. We bathe the kids every other night (sometimes just with water) to keep their skin from going too dry, but definitely make sure to give them a good wash when they need it!
Thankfully, both of them have reacted really well to the Love Boo body wash (i.e. no irritation whatsoever), so the Love Boo Very Gentle Top to Toe Wash has replaced the previous body wash we were using. Tip: if you’re tight on space and want an all-in-one body wash and shampoo for the entire family, this is the one to pack!
I also need to include that it’s generally not recommended to use most skincare products on babies under four weeks old, unless otherwise instructed by a doctor or a medical professional. Just a little something to keep in mind!
My favorite product is a toss-up between the body smoother and the magic balm. I lovelovelove both of them. The body smoother is the creamiest, most hydrating cream I’ve ever used, and I use it every day without fail. I love the way my skin feels with it. A little bit goes a long way with all of their products; they last forever! If you have any parts of your body that tend to be dry or if you have any stretch marks, the body smoother is definitely one to put in the cart.
The magic balm has kept my hands from completely cracking. I wash my hands so many times a day now that I have two kids. They were cracking and bleeding, and nothing could keep them hydrated enough. Cue the magic balm! I went from alarming, bloody hands back to normal again.
If you’re looking to gift an expectant mom or new mom something for her, look no further than these Love Boo products!
I’d love to hear your thoughts if and when you try them. Happy pampering,
These products were gifted but this post was written because of how much I love the products!
