My daughter loves her bath especially the bubbles. We normally use Matey but on a recent trip to Tesco they didn't have our ususal choice. I had a quick browse of the shelves and saw this was half price at £1.64.
I am familiar with Sanex but I have to be honest I have never tried it. This product is described on the bottle as a bodywash and foam bath. The bottle contains 500ml and is rather plain looking. It has a groove in the right hand side so it fits easily into your hand preventing it from slipping when you have wet hands. The bottle has coloured lettering spelling the word kids and a picture of a blue bubble. The product is described as being hypoallergenic, pH balanced and paediatrician approved.
Sanex has the motto keeps skin healthy and the back of the bottle shows that it has dermo 3 active nath and shower complex which they say will protect by improving the skin's natural protective barrier, moisturise for soft skin and finally rebalance by restoring the natural pH of the skin. The bottle also describes the wash as being gently cleansing without drying your child's delicate skin whilst it develops its own defences.
When I first used this I expected it to be scent free. It does however have a lovely fruity smell. The liquid is thick and creamy and to use as a foam bath you only need a small squirt under running warm water. My daughter loves her bathtime and especially lots of bubbles which she plays with. In the past other bath foams have not made many bubbles and have not lasted very long. I am pleased to say this product lasts the full duration of bath time which is about 15-20 minutes. I normally have to rinse bubbles out after the bath is empty. In terms of using this as a body wash I use a sponge to which I apply a small amount of wash. This normally produces enough lather for me to wash my daughter.
After using this my daughter skin is soft and smooth. She does sometimes get dry patches which can be made wprse by certain products this doesn't seem to dry her skin at all. We have been using this daily for a few weeks now and I am very pleased woth the product even at full price I would buy this again. It saves having to buy two products and makes lots of lovely bubbles.
I have tried many different shower gels over the years. I have very sensitive skin and eczema, so I try to use the gentle, mild and fragrance free varieties and always look out for special offers.
I have tried some medicated shower gels inthe past, but they don't leave you feeling as clean and can leave behind a greasy feeling on the skin.
A while ago I started to try baby shower gels and found that they are much better for my skin, because they are so mild, so when I saw Sanex for kids, I thought that might be a good one to try because I already liked a lot of other products from sanex.
The Sanex kids range is quite hard to find. I have only ever seen it in Superdrug and online. The range has shower gel, bath foam and hand wash. The shower gel comes in a 250ml size only, which is a bit of pain, as I do tend to get through quite a bit of the stuff, but it's not the end of the world.
The sanex kids shower gel is approved by paediatricians, and is hypoallergenic. It is formulated to clean the skin, without drying it out.
I have used this quite a bit and have to say that I am a big fan. A lot of shower gels promise to be gentle, but aren't very good on my sensitive skin.
It lathers up well on a sponge, so you don't need to use a lot each time (I get through a lot because I shower a lot) and it leaves a really clean smell, not a perfumy fragrance. Afterwards, my skin feels soft and smooth, like I have moisturised, when I haven't.
At one point, this product actually managed to help clear up some Eczema I had on my arms, which was fantastic.
At around £2.99 per 250ml, it's not the cheapest, but still affordable for most. I just wish it went on offer sometimes.
