Guest reviewer Emma Button from Mellow Mummy has been trying out some of the mother and baby bathtime and skincare products from Cussons Mum & Me.
Sleep Tight Baby Bath which has a very delicate fragrance of chamomile and lavender which are both known to be soothing to try and help your baby zone out before bedtime as part of your bathtime ritual. The baby bath foams well and yet somehow it manages to keep my baby's skin well moisturised (this is quite unusual for a very bubbly bubble bath which normally dry the skin).
I would say that the scent is just a touch too mild to be used in a big bath tub (the smell gets a bit lost) but in a small baby bath it is more effective. It is inexpensive and god value for money.
I tried out the Mum & Me Hold The Volume Shampoo and Conditioner which was very appealing to me. At present my little girl is very demanding and is going through a clingy stage so I hardly ever get any time to myself so the time-saving of a shampoo and conditioner in one seemed perfect. I haven't used a two-in-one hair product for many many years so I was really impressed with this as it seemed to manage to clean my hair without leaving either dry, or greasy. As I am just slowly starting to stop breastfeeding, my hair is beginning to lose some of its oomph and I really think that this could help it recover some of it's pizazz. I probably wouldn't use it every time I wash my hair (I don't think I need THAT much volume!!!) but as a regular product to use a couple of times a week I think it is perfect for new and busy mums.
Items from the Mum & Me bump, new mum and baby range can be found in most large supermarkets and pharmacies.
