Baby massage oil £16.75 ( with organic apricot and jojoba oils)
Perfect bonding time with baby. This product can be used from 3 months. The fragrance is so pure and delicious I had to be very good and not apply the oil all over myself…it’s baby’s…not mine *sigh*! Made with apricot, sunflower, castor, jojoba, rose hip, borage, olive, avocado,lavender, mandarin,camomile & geranium oils, and St. John’s wort, Rosemary & camomile extracts there is absolutely nothing to scare you with. Everything is pure and that’s what I want for my baby. The oil soaks very quickly and smoothly into baby’s skin so that they are not a slippery mess!
Linden blossom face cream for mama (& papa) £28.35
I’m addicted already. The fragrance is a mixture between a geranium flower field whilst eating the most delicious orange in the world. What’s even nicer is the fragrance when rubbed into the skin as its delicate, discreet and delicious. Some creams I find leave a rather particular fragrance behind which is not to my liking but this one doesn’t.
The cream is like a natural yoghurt consistency which rubs in quickly and effectively. It definitely makes my tired, wrinkly face wonderfully hydrated!
Is a soon to be launching (8th August 2016), Australian completely natural & organic, hand made beauty scrub company. Each ingredient has been hand-picked based on extensive research into why each element is beneficial for the skin. The scrubs, which are 185g, are highly moisturising and packed with hydrolysing minerals, leaving your skin feeling soft and smooth. The incredible combination of vitamin E, potassium, magnesium, iron and essential oils are especially great for use on dry sin, and problem-prone areas such as stretch marks & scarring. (Perfect for mamas to be!!) The scrubs are so extremely gentle on the skin that baby can use them too, without the scrubbing ;)!!
For the time being, unless demand is there, Mandamade will ship solely to Australia. Each jar is $25 aus but you can also just buy refills for $15 aus.
The best feature is that the scrubs have a gooey consistency making them so, so easy to apply! This lovely brand donates 2% of every sale to Animals Australia (Australia’s leading animals protection agency) to help end animal cruelty so you’re not only investing in a great product, but you’re helping contribute to an even better cause!
Ingredients: (I’m quite tempted to taste them… ;)!)
Chocolate: Organic brown sugar, organic raw sugar, organic coconut oil, raw almonds, organic raw cocoa powder, organic olive oil, vitamin E oil.
Mint: Organic brown sugar, organic raw sugar, organic coconut oil, organic peppermint essential oil, organic olive oil, vitamin E oil.
This one is just for mama…especially for those mornings after the long nights we face at times!!
Natural and organic compounds are not only biodegradable and sustainable, they also do a better job than harsh chemicals which is a cheaper alternative for skincare. Certified organic ingredients must pass more rigorous standards of purity.
Under this standard, formulations must be of natural origins and are strictly not tested on animals.
With this in mind, as you wash your face with their camomile cleanser, you will feel as pure as a baby’s bottom ;)! Camomile cleanser $26

Yes, I know, there are so many coconut oil brands nowadays so why Kokoso? I can only say trust me?! I’ve used it on my spotty skin, on insect bites, on bruises on my puffy eyes. I’ve used it on my baby’s red bottom, on his lovely soft skin and on his cradle cap and it’s always worked and it’s always felt safe and good and that’s why I say Kokoso! I hope that’s enough convincing for you other mamas out there!!!
