“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Baby Wash „
As you may know from reading any of my previous reviews, i do like to save money on shopping when i can! When pregnant with my first child i thought only Johnson's products would do but have since found out that is not the case and maybe those products contain a little bit too much perfume for delicate skin.
When buying shower gel or body wash or even bubble bath, i usually buy for the whole family (all 4 of us). My Daughter has slight eczema and my Fiance has psoriasis so i always try to buy the most sensitive products on offer. One day whilst in Tesco i saw this babysoft cotton milk baby wash on offer for 75p, usually £1.00 for 400mls. I decided to try it and see how 'babysoft' this really was.
Overall, i was very happy with this product. After as few uses i didn't receive any complaints or unhappy faces or rashes from my Daughter. The body wash smells lovely and has a smooth and creamy texture with leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturised.
It comes in an upside down bottle with the opening at the bottle and seems to last for ages, even with 4 of us using it everyday!
The price is great value for money even when not on offer but most important to myself is that it's kind and gentle to my family.
I use baby toiletries fairly often on my skin, they are generally fairly cheap, don't irritate my dry skin and don't clash with any perfume I use after I shower. My favourite is Johnsons baby which has that gorgeous smell and is around £2.50 for a bottle of softwash. The Tesco Babysoft cotton milk bodywash costs just £1 for a 400ml bottle so in the interests of saving a few pennies I decided to give it a try.
The bodywash comes in a top down bottle which is really handy in the shower when you are nearly finished the bottle as it minimises wastage. The nozzle has a rubber bit inside it meaning that you have to squeeze the bottle for any softwash to come out which would be handy if you left it open by accident or if a baby was playing with it they would not have the strength to squirt the soap out and waste it.
The bodywash is nice and white when it comes out, no nasty artificial colours in here to irritate delicate skin. It has a really mild and gentle smell, I remember hating it the first time I used it because it was not the Johnsons baby smell but it grew on me over time. I'm not great at describing smells but it is a really soft smell which is a bit like baby powder mixed in with baby lotion.
The softwash feels really moisturising when I first apply it to my skin and I can really feel the baby lotion which is in the formula. It lathers up but doesn't produce many bubbles, loads of tiny white bubbles. I would like more lather but I suppose if you are bathing a little baby you don't want too many bubbles to rinse away.
My skin always feels nice and clean and soft after I have used this bodywash, I have many patches of dry skin and I have not felt that it has irritated them at all. It's certainly a product I would feel happy to recommend that an adult or child with sensitive skin tries. The softwash also claims a no tears formula and I am sad enough to admit that I tried this out; it did sting my eyes very slightly but it performed much better than the Johnsons night time wash which left my eyes streaming with tears.
Overall Tesco Babysoft bodywash is a fantastic buy, it is less than half the price of the leading brand and performs just as well on babies big and small.
A gentle bodywash with cotton milk and rosehip oil cleanses and leaves skin soft to touch. No tears formula with moisturising lotion.
