Halo and Horns Baby Care Baby Bath
Advantages: Chemical free and suitable for sensitive skin. An all-in-one product. Reasonably priced.
Disadvantages: Doesn't lather up very much or give a very bubbly bath
I was going to buy some Johnsons baby bath from Tesco but noticed Halo's Baby Bath on special offer. The packaging advertised it as being chemical-free and suitable for sensitive skin. My son suffered from mild eczema as a baby and even though he hadn't had a flare up for some time I was still careful about the skincare products I chose. I purchased one 250ml tube for £1.02 (normal price at Tesco was £1.54).
*** About Halos n Horns ***
The Halos n Horns company was founded by Leila Wilcox. Her son used to suffer from red, blotchy skin after his bath and sometimes flare up with eczema. In 1995, she decided to cut out a long list of chemical nasties from her little boy's bath time routine. It worked amazingly well and soon his skin began to clear up. Leila went on to develop the Halos n Horns chemical-free skincare range for children. Her main mission was to create a child friendly, affordable alternative to the costly specialist products on the market. The Halos n Horns range would be free of chemicals linked to eczema, asthma and other health risks.
*** Packaging ***
The product comes in a white, flexible plastic tube which is easy to squeeze. It has an easy-to-open blue flip lid. The logo and text on the tube look a lot like children's doodles (with cute faces drawn in the letter 'O'). This design fits the product range very well. On the front of the tube it highlights the fact that the product is dermapaedic, hypoallergenic and kind to eyes.
The back of the tube gives a full list of ingredients, as well as mentioning some known nasties that it does not contain. It states that the product is made with natural conditioners and plant-based cleansing ingredients.
*** Performance ***
I squirted some Halo Baby Bath into the water whilst running my son's bath. I then put a little bath cream on a sponge to give him a thorough wash. Halo baby bath has a mild, sweet smell that is pleasant and not too strong. It wasn't as perfumed as Johnson's baby bath or shampoo. I washed his hair with the bath wash as the packaging said it could be used as shampoo as well. It also said it was kind to eyes so I didn't have to worry about it stinging him.
The results were very good. The Halo bath wash left my son's skin soft and clean with a nice sweet smell. The only disadvantages were that the didn't lather up very well or create many bubbles in the bath water. However, I felt that these factors were ultimately unimportant.
Discovering this product range has been a bit of an eye opener. It's really made me think about the host of chemicals used in many baby skincare products. Given the choice I would now much prefer to pay a bit more for a product that is kinder to my child's skin, than opt for a cheaper alternative full of chemicals. Overall, I have been very impressed and would recommend it.
