I’m a bad mommy and my boy doesn’t know it; I like to nick his sunscreen. I also like to check out new sunscreens for babies and kids, with the excuse that they’re meant for him but I always end up trying them out first. In fact, I’ve ended up just using his sunscreen at the pool many a times because I was too lazy to pack another tube. So the question that begs asking is: are sunscreens for babies and kids good enough for adults?
I recently bought this Milk Baby Bath Time Wash from Sephora at ION. Although it’s a baby product but because it smells really good, I thought I could share it with my boy. There’s nothing fanciful about the packaging but the 375ml looks decent enough at S$30. In addition, I like the idea that this product comes with 82% certified organic ingredients including certified organic lavender oil, certified organic chamomile extract, certified organic neroli 3% in jojoba oil, certified organic calendula.
I guess I belong to the increasing percentage of women who use baby items on themselves. Well, not that I deliberately buy a baby product for myself, but more like I’m pinching the product from my child. But it’s quite hard to resist a product like Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Shampoo & Wash, because it smells so lovely and makes bathing really pleasant. In fact, I won’t be surprised that this is one of the baby beauty products which are popular among 40 percent of adults who use baby items on themselves – according to a study from Johnson & Johnson.
A few weeks ago, I received the Baby Blanklet Zinc Oxide Sunscreen Stick with SPF 45+ from Baby Blanklet Suncare and have been happily applying it on my son. He hates sunscreen but he loves this and calls it glue! So it makes it real easy for application because he doesn’t resist. Plus it helps that this is a non-sticky and non-greasy formula. In fact, I rather like it for myself especially since I love sunscreen sticks in general because I find them handy and convenient.
