Give away has now closed.
I was lucky enough to receive a set of ecoSTORE Baby Care Products to try out on my gorgeous baby. The timing was perfect as I was able to take them to Mildura with me when we went away last Friday. Over the four days that we were there the temperature in Mildura was 36, 38, 39 and 40 degrees celsius! Given that my parent’s house where I was staying is only partially air conditioned and that the kids insisted on still playing outside, bathing the baby before his sleep time was the best way to calm and cleanse the little fella so he could get some rest.
The Sleepytime Bath is an aromatherapy blend of lavender and geranium and it smells divine. After his bath bubs was much more composed, smelling sweet and feeling very clean. (Mildura is particularly famous for its red dirt, that he was continuously covered in.) Although I love the hot weather, when I was bathing bubs before his sleeps, I did take the opportunity to alternate soaking my hands and feet in the water to freshen myself up a little too.
ecoSTORE products are made using natural plant and mineral based ingredients and do not contain any nasty chemicals. You can check out their listing on their website to see the full list of what their products do not contain, but in brief their products do not contain toxic petrochemicals, propylene glycol, parabens, sodium lauryl sulphates (SLS), synthetic dyes or perfumes, mineral oils or paraffin.
The baby shampoo and massage oil also have a similar gentle and clean smell. I particular liked that the massage oil didn’t leave baby or I overly slippery. It gave enough lubrication to make the massage pleasant for baby, but without being too messy. I have to admit, that this massage was the first one that bubs had received in about 6 months! My three year old was fascinated by the process and then proceeded to lay down next to his brother, lining up for his turn. I wasn’t sure that he would like having the oil rubbed on him, but he loved it, telling me that next time I give the baby a massage, he would like another one too!
