We were so excited to get our hands on the beautiful new Little Skinfood range, including a luxurious talc free body powder, a  baby massage oil, a bottom balm and divinely smelling (very subtle) shampoo & body wash and body lotion . The range is Certified Organic by ECOCERT or made with 100% natural ingredients. No baddies and guaranteed free from synthetic preservatives, fragrances and colours. And best of all made right here in New Zealand!

We were lucky enough to receive samples to review Little Skinfood’s gorgeous body wash, shampoo and body lotion. All certified organic by ECOCERT and all 100% natural. Needless to say our little miss 4 Neeva Rose was in girly girl heaven receiving her gorgeous goodies and she could not wait to get into the bath to test them all out!!
The Shampoo and Wash come in the most beautiful see-through packaging and when using the pump disperser a little bit of foam gets distributed in the palm of your hand. This scored the big thumbs up as it was such a novelty and a lot of very good washing and even hair washing (which does not happen very often!!) as a result of that. As a mum I loved the foam as well especially considering how easy this would be with a small baby as there is no need to rub your hands together as the foam is already there.

The Shampoo and Wash have a very gentle, faint natural smell of mandarin which left Neeva Roses hair and skin feeling soft and fresh. The products are really gentle and do not strip skin or hair of their natural oils which is really important to me. I also really like that there is no added perfume as little ones smell beautiful enough as is!

The body lotion (or potion as Neeva Rose calls it) is very light and easily absorbed and is completely odour free. She loved the fact that it’s non-sticky and light as with others we have used in the past she didn’t like the ‘heavy’ sticky feel.

For me I love the fact that all products are safe and gentle for littlies and 100% natural and/or ECOCERT certified organic. Being New Zealand made is also a big bonus as we love supporting fellow NZ made companies. What I also thought was a real bonus that the body wash doubles as a face wash for mum and the body lotion makes a great hand cream!!
