Child's Farm Baby Moisturiser


My skin has become the driest it has ever been whilst being on roaccutane for the past 7 months. I have never particularly struggled with dry skin before, and at the start of my treatment I was throwing any moisturiser on which I could find. For my face I have been using a combination of Kiehl's oil free ultra facial cream and La Roche Posay's effcalar H, and they have been working really well together. I found that my makeup has not been sitting on top of my skin after these product have given my skin a boost of hydration.

I first noticed changes to the skin on my body about a month into treatment, and it looked little eczema patches. I was also just having generally dry skin across my entire body and was in instant need of something to help. My dad has eczema but his creams made me really itchy and I couldn't keep them on as they really stung my skin. This was around the time I started to see the hype all about this Childs Farm baby moisturiser. As with everything, I was trying to get it everywhere but it was sold out for weeks, I finally got my hands on it and was super impressed with its £3.99 price tag. The creators of this line have made it with the target audience of babies with sensitive or eczema prone skin. 

It is a very simple white emollient cream, and I love the pump feature on the top of the bottle. The cream has a medium consistency and can be applied to any part of the body including the face. They have built this product around using natural ingredients and not using anything which could react with the skin such as parabens. It does have a mild fragrance of shea and cocoa butter which it always an added bonus, and these ingredients also add hydrating properties. 

I haven't found that this has instantly cured my skin, but I have been using it regularly and I have seen a difference. A couple of weekends ago I headed to a festival and the night before I was due to go, the inside of my knees came out in a really dry harsh looking rash which was full of little spots. It was really itchy and uncomfortable and it was also very sunny weather outside. I applied this and I felt it soothe the area of skin over the next few hours after it had soaked in. It took a good 5-6 days for it to go completely go away but I think this definitely helped to hydrate the area of skin. One of the moisturisers main features is to stop irritation and has a no sting formula. The only negative aspect I would say is after application I find my skin to be a little bit tacky. I usually apply this cream in the morning and night depending on how dry or rashy my skin is looking.
