Giveaway ended – Congratulations Melanie!
This is a review
I must confess.
When I was pregnant with Tom I packed some things in my hospital bag that I never even considered when I had Jeremy. Silly, silly things. I wanted to feel good after birth (see? Silly already!) and I was given one of those awesome free makeup bags that you get when you spend too much money on Clinique foundation. It was filled with mini cleansers, moisturisers, mini perfume etc.
After Tom was born I did not get to feed him. I was so dazed I just went with whatever they said. I showered, dressed, made my way back to my room…then he was brought to me, all bundled up like an eskimo. Hmmm…I know it wasn’t JUST all those things, the eskimo and the smelly stuff. But he didn’t feed. He would not. And we struggled for months and months.
Anyway, we got there on the end. Yay! Second time around I packed only QV moisturiser, lip balm and roll on deodorant. I’d been further informed at a QV Morning Tea about the benefits of skin to skin and how a baby smelling a mother’s milk and skin helps with their latching.
We have been big users of the classic white tub of QV moisturiser ever since and we got given the new baby range to give a go!
QV Baby Moisturising Cream
Ohhh this stuff is so light! I use it on my legs all the time…(and for the boys too). While neither of the children have ever had any major skin issues, their legs tend to dry out in winter and summer and so do mine. It is free from fragrance, suitable for sensitive skin and it is non-greasy.
QV Baby Bath Oil
We were recommended QV Baby Bath oil when we brought Tom home and he developed awfully dry patches of skin. As it turns out, the country town water which was full of minerals was not the best for his skin. The oil basically ‘softened’ the water and brought him back to baby bum supple!
QV Baby Barrier Cream
This was the first time I had used the QV Baby Barrier Cream and I quite liked it. It’s not thick so you only need to dab a bit on and it spreads easily. It’s done a great job on Jeremy’s nappy rash which is constant thanks to 10 and a half months old and no teeth yet!
QV Kid’s Wash and Moisturiser
The QV Kid’s Wash and Moisturiser is a lot of fun if you want to get toddlers cleaning and moisturising themselves with something that isn’t full of nasties. It has tiny Vitamin A and E coloured beads in it that dissolve immediately when you rub it into the skin and the kid’s wash is hardly soapy at all so if you’re into that big, fake lather it won’t work for you. The moisturiser is thick and absorbed so easily. I may be stealing a little bit of it for those extra dry areas on my elbows too…
We were also given a host of QV skincare for adults including the Rescue Remedy Gel which I’ve been using daily for a quick freshen up of my skin and QV Sport Moisturising Lotion which is awesome for that dreaded irritation that comes with working up a sweat! Reasonably priced and at most chemists QV is a great, chemical free way to go when it comes to skin care.
