For the last few months we’ve been trying out some new Bath time products, so I thought it made perfect sense for me to share some of our favourites in this month’s edition of the series. I really am no Beauty Blogger – but like who doesn’t bath, shower or wash their face?
I’m all for simplicity though and love using products that only require a quick and easy routine, without any precious time wasted.
Here are a few bathtime products we’ve been loving lately:
Johnson’s recently launched their new Baby top-to-toe range which they sent us to try out. I absolutely love the fresh baby smell of all the products and was pleased to learn that this range has been designed for the most sensitive skin. It’ gentle enough for newborns and the cleanser is said to be as mild as water.
We follow a simple bath time routine for Aidan with these products: Wash with the top-to-toe baby wash, followed by a massage with massage lotion or cream or extra moisturising baby cream.
Alyssa enjoys getting her legs and feet massaged by Mom and Dad and especially loves it when we use lavender fragranced massage lotion. It’s her favourite flower and she adores the smell too. When we received a Blog drop from Sebastian Baby Wear which contained their new Bath salts containing lavender, it was the perfect addition to her routine.
We add 2 tablespoons of Sebastian’s Sleepy Time Baths Salts to her bath water and for further softness, 2 tablespoons of the organic virgin cold-pressed coconut oil to the bath water to fragrance and moisturise the skin.
After that, she has a good night’s rest
I attended an evening at Amazi Nail and Beauty bar last week and learnt about the Ordinary skin care range with whom Amazi has partnered with by becoming a stockist. It is a Proudly South African brand which is super affordable and made with natural ingredients for use on any skin type, including skin affected by eczema. Ingredients are sourced mainly from the Western Cape which includes citric acid, grapeseed oil and olea europa (olive) fruit oil.
At the event, I enjoyed a facial using the products and loved the gentle exfoliator which immediately got rid of some of the dead skin and dry patches on my face. I got to take home the cleanser and lip balm which I’ve started using. So far, so good!
You can check out the full product range in any Amazi store or learn more online.
From the 1st- 25th of December there’s an amazing “Buy 1-get-1 free Ordinary Skincare product!” promotion, only at Amazi Salons. (T’s and C’s apply). Do check it out!
Kurt is very adventurous in my Beauty closet and loves to use my products for some reason, instead of just getting his own.
There was a time when he ran out of his own moisturiser and started using one of my creams which had been in the cupboard for a while. He didn’t read the label very well and after weeks of using it on his face, I broke the news to him that it was, in fact, BUST FIRMING CREAM.
At one of this year’s Blogger CTmeetup’s, there were a few African Extracts Rooibos products in our goodie Bag. Before I even got to them, Kurt had started using them. I asked him how he found it and this was his very elaborative words “Very Good” 🙂
The exfoliator is the only product I got to try out and it’s just what my dry skin needs once a week.
We’ve also been using some new hair products, which perhaps I’ll share in next month’s post. I’m becoming quite the Beauty Blogger, ain’t I? 🙂
