What we say: “I have reviewed one of my favourite and most appreciated company for natural products. I love and trust Weleda range for babies and use it on a daily basis. Weleda’s products are always natural, free of parbens/chemicals and works wonderfully and efficiently.
This kit is packed in a lovely clear string bag and contains Weleda’s best essential baby products from the organic Calendula range: Calendula Nappy Change Cream, Calendula Shampoo And Body Wash (with an Organic Cotton Cloth) and Calendula Body Lotion. Such a practical kit and a wonderful idea for a present. Between all the cloths and toys I’ve received as presents when DS was born, this one would have been great!
Calendula Nappy Change Cream:
Iv’e been using Weleda change nappy cream on my DS since day one basically. I keep using it till this day, it’s simply effective, natural and affordable.
The cream come in a metal tube, which makes it easy to get the exact amount needed without any mess involved. It’s easy to know how much product is left (unlike a plastic tube) and also more compact and easier to squeeze out the last bits of it! The quantity is 75ml, perfect for traveling and a little goes a long way – lasts about a month of daily uses. Looking at the ingredients, no nasties, 100% natural (some of them organic), so perfect for newborns/sensitive skin! It contains calendula and chamomile to sooth and protect those little bottoms. The texture is nice and thick, also a bit oily so is easy to apply and absorbs fairly quickly into the skin. When applying the cream from a new tube, it will be mostly oily for the first couple of times, but then the consistency will turn homogeneous and lovely. Smell is gorgeous, a mild/delicate lavender. As for the cream effectiveness, in three words, It really works! This cream manages to create an excellent barrier between the nappy and baby’s bottom. Using it on a daily basis helped us prevent redness and soreness, even on those harsh days of teething. In fact, the only times we’ve experienced redness/rash, were the times when ran out of Weleda nappy cream and had to use another brand! We’ve been managing our stocks very well since then! Overall, an excellent nappy cream and I’d highly recommend it!
Calendula Shampoo And Body Wash (Plus Organic Cotton Cloth):
Once again, this product comes in a clever packaging, combining two products in one handy tube, making it easier for us parents. The 200ml amount is perfect, not too heavy to hold and squeeze using one hand. Having the cap on this bottom is great, and once again looks like Weleda thought very carefully of all the details! I’m loving the fact that it’s natural, has no chemicals and most importantly ,doesn’t contain any SLS. The lack of SLS doesn’t prevent it to lather nicely on the skin. I’ve found this wash to be very effective as a delicate shampoo. It cleaned DS’s hair gently, left it shiny with a lovely clean smell that lasted until next bath. We didn’t experience any tears during the bath, no dry/patchy scalp, simply a very good gentle shampoo for little ones.
As a body wash, when using it directly on a wet skin, I’ve found it a bit sticky and not easy to wash off. However, mixing a small amount of it in the bath water and using soft cloth solved this and worked perfectly for us! Once diluted with the water, it was nice and easy to wash off and DS enjoyed the tiny bubbles in the water. The kit came complete with an organic cotton white washing cloth, which was a great little bonus. It had a little loop with Weleda logo on it for easy hanging. Size was prefect too!
DS’s delicate skin was so soft to touch, felt clean and smelled lovely. Will defiantly keep using it for DS in the future. I think I’ll give it ago myself!
Calendula Body Lotion:
I tend not to use body lotion for little ones, unless there is a need for it. This autumn and coming winter is a very good reason to do so! So it’s a good thing to lock the moisture inside and protect their delicate skin from getting dry and flaky.
The ingredients are all great quality, natural, some of them organic and carefully chosen delicate skin. The lotion comes in a squeeze bottle and its unique shape makes it easy to grab it even with slippery hands! It contains 200ml and a little goes a long way. The texture felt light, creamy and non greasy. I love the fact that I didn’t need wait long before putting on clothes and it didn’t feel like the clothes/skin are getting ‘wet’ or sticky. It didn’t leave any stains or oily marks on his PJs. It absorbed quickly to the skin and smelled wonderful. I am very impressed with the results, DS’s skin never felt softer, within only a few days of use! This massage had become a part of our nighttime routine now and we love it. Would highly recommend using this lotion if you have sensitive skin. It simply works well!
