Essential Baby Toiletries: Baby Dove Review
There is so much to think about & prepare when you are expecting a baby. When we brought my first baby home from the hospital I thought we were super prepared & had every baby toiletry & gadget on the market. However, within the very first week of being new parents, we discovered how many items we were actually missing. Thank goodness for 24 hour pharmacies!
Therefore, I have put together a series of posts about essential baby toiletries that I feel are important to have to hand. This time? I ensured I had brought them all BEFORE coming home from hospital with Charlie!
When it comes to skin care I am super careful what products we use as a family. I have sensitive skin, my husband suffers with eczema, Sophie has dry patches & Charlie is…well, a newborn…! Over the years Dove has often been our go-to skin care brand & therefore I was super pleased when they sent me a set of Baby Dove bath products to use on Charlie.
Baby Dove Caring Baby Bath Gift Set
This lovely gift set from Dove is perfect for new mums & includes everything baby needs for their first bath.
- Moisturising Head to Toe Wash
- Rich Moisture Shampoo
- Rich Moisture Lotion
- Baby Sponge
Dove has a 60 year heritage & is well known for its mildness & care. The baby products are no exception with each product gently moisturising baby’s skin all day including keeping baby’s scalp moisturised and their hair soft.
The Head to Toe Wash comes in a small bottle with a very handy pump meaning washing can be done one handed. Each pump gives a small amount, but certainly goes a long way. The amount is plenty to wash a small child with & means the bottle will last a long time.
Charlie has just enough ‘newborn’ hair to occasionally be using the Rich Moisture Shampoo as part of his bath time routine. Again, a very small amount of shampoo goes a long way, lathers well & is easy to rinse. It leaves no sticky residues, has a pleasant smell & has helped clean & moisturise his scalp which was initially quite dry.
After his bath, I have been applying the Rich Moisture Lotion to Charlie’s skin. The consistency means it spreads really well & absorbs quickly. The lotion leaves his skin feeling super soft & has helped soften & remove the initial layer of newborn skin they tend to shed.
Why We Love It
- All products are dermatalogically & paediatrician tested
- Each toiletry included in the gift set is ‘tear free’ meaning no worries about eye irritation
- The smell! A gentle but lovely smell – almost like the smell of a newborn!
- It works! After having quite dry & cracked skin when he was born, Charlie’s skin is now much smoother & softer.
