When I became a mum I also became more aware of all the harmful chemicals used in the products I was using every day. I’d previously paid little attention to the ingredients in cleaning products, detergents, skincare lotions etc.

Having new responsibilities as a parent I felt that I needed to start making a conscious effort to try and use more natural, eco friendly products wherever possible.  I was actually quite shocked to discover that many of the popular brands targeted as baby safe products are actually full of all the horrid kinds of chemicals I was trying to avoid!

I first discovered the Myroo skincare range when I met Rachael in 2010. The lovely Rachael (Founder of Myroo) has formulated some fabulous skin care products from natural ingredients that are gentle and super kind on the skin. Rachael originally began making skincare products for her children when she couldn’t find anything gentle enough for their sensitive skin. When Rachael’s friends tried her creations on their children and loved them too – Rachael soon decided to launch her fab Myroo company.

I bought a box full of  Myroo baby skincare goodies back in 2011 to use when Rosie was a baby and loved them. Rosie had sensitive eczema prone skin and the Myroo (also known as Milly and Flossy) products worked well for her. As Rosie has grown older her allergies seem to have calmed down but I am keen to carry on using natural products wherever possible.

Last week I received a gorgeous package of  ‘Myroo’ goodies to try out on my little baby Ruby! I was a little excited when the box of treats arrived.  Rachael sent me a baby soap, baby balm and a lavender baby milk bath to try. I can happily say I loved all three products!

The baby balm is wonderful, it smells lovely, feels soft and silky on the skin and works well for baby massage, dry bits, baby bums etc. (I may have used it on me too .. as it’s such a great moisturiser!) I’ve been using this on most nappy changes for the last few days.

Last night I had a gorgeous soak in the bath with Ruby – the Baby Milk Bath has a subtle lavender scent and leaves the water feeling silky soft.  The soap is great too, I also tried this on Rosie when she jumped in to join us!

I would definitely recommend these products to other parents, I think they would also make wonderful new baby gifts. I will no doubt be buying from the Myroo range in the future. I’m quite keen to try some of the other products available to order through the website too! they all sound divine if you ask me. Myroo also have a facebook group. Please do pop along and ‘Like’ it if you can. (click here)
