“cheeky cream worked it’s magic!”

We have recently tried out the miamoo travel goodies set, I was really excited to try these as both G and I suffer from sensitive skin. The review was perfectly timed for us going to London for Britmums Live too so we packed them to try out that week.

So to start with G tried the splashy wash in the bath, bath time is his favourite time of the day and he wasn’t disappointed with the splashy wash, a small drop produced a very large amount of bubbles! The splashy wash itself was gentle on his skin which is the most important part and I noticed after the bath his skin wasn’t as dry and flaky as it normally would be.

G also tried out the fresh locks 3 in 1 wash to wash his hair in the bath, you really do only need a tiny drop of this to lather up the hair and give it a good clean. The only thing I would change about it would be the addition of some conditioner to reduce tangles; G has always had very thick and wild hair. But his hair does feel silky soft after using the shampoo which is great.

Once he was all dried we tried the huggy lotion, G enjoyed this part as he loves massage and having creams rubbed onto his skin. He is in his element at the moment with the sun cream coming out most days! G really liked the huggy lotion as did I; it has a lovely smell and soaks into the skin nicely. I tried the huggy lotion myself too and it feels very soothing on the skin and doesn’t leave any greasy residue.

G doesn’t often need nappy cream as we use cloth nappies but we tried out the cheeky cream on a sore patch of skin and it worked its magic!

I tried the spritz and wipe, it feels very refreshing which is lovely in the heat at the moment or if you are travelling long distance. However I did find this left a slight greasy feeling to my skin so I needed to use a wet cloth to wipe over the skin after spraying.

Finally G loves the baba oil obviously as it’s something else to have rubbed into the skin and if G is happy then I am happy!

The travel pack includes a clear zip fastening bag to fit all of the above items in and a cotton wash cloth. At £15 as a treat for a mini break away or a hospital bag the set is good value.

Overall we really liked the miamoo range, it’s gentle on sensitive skin, has a nice smell and the products are packed with natural ingredients.

“Products start from £5, very comparable for Paraben/Petrochemical free”

I was excited when miamoo offered to send me their travel goodies to try out, as its only 141 days till we leave for our holiday, and the miamoo travel goodies are perfectly sized to fit in your hand luggage. The Travel pack contains everything that you might need for mum’s and babies with 30ml of each product, splashy wash, fresh locks shampoo, huggy lotion, cheeky cream, spritz and wipe, and baba oil. The pack of  miamoo travel goodies also comes in a handy plastic travel purse and has a lovely cotton flannel.

The first thing I noticed was that all the miamoo products are Paraben and free from other petrochemicals, which means that the boy can use them. The miamoo products are especially kind to children’s and babies who suffer from dry or sensitive skin like the boy.  The first product we tried was the miamoo fresh locks shampoo. It has a lovely lavender smell to it, and is not to overpowering, and I could tell that the boy was clean when he came out of the bathroom as his hair smelt lovely and looked shiny too.

The miamoo splashy wash has a lovely lemon scent which I thought was very pleasant and is a favourite smell of mine. I gave this product a try and it was very refreshing, but without feeling that it had stripped all the oil from my skin it felt very soft afterwards. The boy found that it was easy and gentle on his skin too.

The miamoo cheeky cream as its name might suggest could be used for babies cheeks, but as I don’t have a baby to test on, I tried the cream out on my face. With a very pleasing smell, it wasn’t greasy, this cream made my skin feel very soft, and was also easy to use as a hand cream. Perfect for when I forget to take one on the plane with me which I always do!

There are also 3 spray bottles in the miamoo travel pack, spritz and wipe with lime and minerals, which would be great for freshening up after a days travel. This had a very subtle smell and would be great to keep in my handbag for cleaning sticky fingers.

The huggy lotion has to be my favourite from the pack, as it was easy to apply and made my skin feel soft, with almond and marshmallow extracts it makes a perfect all over moisturiser. It is also very easy to use from the pump bottle.

Finally baba oil, and this is something I don’t have much call for now the boy is older, but it is always handy to have. I will use baby oil removing paint from hands, and even tree sap, from when the boy has been helping dad to move the logs. With lavender and almond oil it had a lovely smell, but is not something I would necessarily take on holiday with me.

I was impressed with the quality of the miamoo products, and think the handy sizes are a great way to find your favourites, or even give as a gift for a new mum. You can buy miamoo products from their website and the travel pack has an RRP of £15.00, which for this type of product is very reasonable. The full-sized products start from £5.00 which again is very comparable for Paraben and petrochemical free products. Delivery is free for orders over £50.
