Eczema is like a swear-word in our house. It has given me absolute endless anxiety since Daniel picked it up at 10 weeks. We have been to the pediatrician, got all the recommended soaps and tried various baby ranges. Some of which worked, if only for a short while, but when winter popped it’s ugly scaly head Daniel started with eczema around his eyes and face area. It looked sore, irritated and flaky. Most of all my poor babies face was a constant reminder that although we had tons of medications, this is something we are living with daily.
At the EC Meet Up last year, we received samples from a natural local homeopath, Bubiroo. Dorae the brain behind Bubiroo and I briefly chatted about Daniel’s skin condition. I tried the sample products and they were awesome. I especially love that the products were completely natural. Meaning they have none of the icky stuff, all of the goodness, AND they are cruelty free. We have been using Bubiroo’s Baby Wash & Shampoo, Baby Wax and a Healing Balm (with extra Neem).
Bubiroo Baby Wash & Shampoo R135
My husband absolutely loves this body wash and shampoo combo, from the smell to the texture, to the way Daniel’s skin feels after. When we first started using the products Daniel would constantly touch his own skin. We were so impressed that even he noticed the difference in how moisturized his skin was! The shampoo does leave hair a bit oily, I only know this because I once used it on Emilie’s hair. On Daniel’s hair however, his curls absolutely love the extra moisture, they drink all up the extra nutrients and his hair looks amazing! So we don’t need the Conditioning Hair Rinse, but this is available for if you have more oily hair.
Bubiroo Baby Wax R130
It took me a little while to get used to this wax, because of it’s coconut oil base, it’s a harder when cold and softer when warm. Once I got used to not scratching out a blob and try to rub it in on his body, it made a lot more sense. I rub it into my hands first warm up the wax and then smear it on his body! It goes really far so not much is needed. Daniel is able to rub on himself, taste test, and play in the tub too because it is absolutely safe! It has kept one stubborn spot right above his toosh, at bay completely it doesn’t get dry at all. We use it once a day after his evening bath, and his skin has thanked me by staying beautifully smooth.
Bubiroo Healing Balm R145
This was the first product that I ordered when Daniel’s face broke out with eczema and dry spots, and Dorae added some additional essence include Neem specifically for him. Neem is an anti-inflammatory, reducing redness and inflammation, it can dramatically helps with skin regeneration. This healing balm is one of my ultimate favourite products because we literally use it for everything now. Bruises, cuts, swelling everything and I must say the healing time is so much quicker. We get a small tub every month, and every month I order another one because we just find so many uses for it.
