As you may know, our Ava turned one this month and we are celebrating with an amazing birthday giveaway. 8 mystery brands, 1 incredible prize. Today we reveal our 1st prize and a little extra announcement too… Find out more about Pure Beginnings and why it’s our “go-to” skincare range for all 3 our girls.
It all started with a gift…
When I fell pregnant with Eliana in 2011 we were on a mission. We wanted to give our baby the best and in our minds that meant keeping as many chemicals and nasties away as possible. I googled, asked, read and researched all over looking for the best organic baby skincare. Everyone knew how important this was to us and at our gender reveal a friend gave us a little gift. A Pure Beginnings Organic Baby Gift Set.
Finally the local product we’d been looking for. Organic, safe, affordable and who wouldn’t like the adorable packaging? We visited the tiny stand at Mama Magic and that was it. So impressed by the Pure Beginnings team, we bought in bulk. The rest is history. 3 Daughters later and this is still the only baby skincare range we trust.
New favourites for Ava.
Recently Pure Beginnings launched their Probiotic Baby range. A body cream and cream wash for sensitive skin.
“Your skin microbiome is the complex ecosystem of microbes naturally living on the skin. Current evidence shows these microbes are essential for optimal functioning of healthy skin, and latest research shows a connection between skin microbial imbalances and several different skin conditions including eczema.
The Probiotic Baby Sensitive Body Cream is formulated to boost the skin’s microbiome with the inclusion of prebiotic and probiotic ingredients. The formulation, ingredients, and product pH have all been considered to assist the skin’s microbiome to flourish.”
The range is also fragrance free with no essential oils. Perfect for the most sensitive skins.
TOP TIP: We waited 2 weeks before giving Ava her 1st bath and used the body cream as a wash up until 3 months. Even now during winter we use this range on all 3 our daughters (ages 1-6years). Keeping their skin soft and moisturised.
Tried and tested staples.
For Eliana and Lia (and during summer) we used the classic baby range.
“Mild, rosemary and geranium scented, all-in-one baby wash and shampoo containing baobab extract which helps soothe and moisturise. The ultra mild plant based surfactants are very gentle on the skin, and won’t strip it of its natural oils thereby leaving the skin clean but not dry, inflamed or irritated.”
TOP TIP: Get more bang for your buck. Available in a 500ml, we still like using it on all the girls. The smell is amazing and a little, really does go a long way.
And let’s not forget the bum cream!
Obviously bum creams are a big deal. It’s probably one of the most used baby product and considering it’s being used on baby’s most delicate parts – It really is important to use a good bum cream. There is simply nothing like the Pure Beginnings bum cream. They should call it a bum butter. Soft, silky and it smells SO GOOD – like all the products in the range. (Full disclosure, I had to hide the bum cream from Eliana and Lia when they were little; they simply wouldn’t stop eating it.) I can also honestly say, we’ve never needed to use any other bum creams other than this.
“The therapeutic Baby Bum Cream contains baobab extract as well as olive, lavender and tea tree oil. It is an extremely effective barrier cream, and with its natural anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties, can be used to treat nappy rash as well as little insect bites and stings.”
TOP TIP: Use on any dry spot or damaged skin. the healing properties are so effective and your bound to see an almost instant improvement.
This bum cream is also safe when using cloth diapers.
Another new product we get to enjoy with Ava is the Soothing Baby Massage & Bath Oil. It smells incredible and the easy pump packaging makes it spill-proof and easy to use.
It contains a blend of moisturising and calming oils that nurture and protects baby’s delicate skin.
Almond oil – a mild, hypoallergenic oil that is excellent for a baby’s skin. Light and thin, almond oil spreads easily and is fully absorbed when gently rubbed into the skin, making it perfect for after bath massage.
TOP TIP: Add a drop or two to baby’s bath (especially during winter) for an extra moisture boost.
