Beauty products that are actually meant for babies

But we love to steal


Now we're all for a fancy face cream with wondrous anti-ageing properties, a quality hyaluronic acid serum, a nourishing body oil or some good old-fashioned Batiste dry shampoo, but sometimes heading back to basics (or babies) is what's needed.

Too many chemicals, too many products (or products that are too mature for our skin), or heavily scented lotions and potions can reek havoc with our skin. Or perhaps your bank balance just can't afford the substantial dent your beauty bag is making this month.

Which is where these fantastical beauty products that are actually meant for babies come in. They're simple, gentle on the skin, and best of all - they're dirt cheap.

Now, we're not suggesting you throw away all your expensive makeup (we can't provide you with a baby foundation), but next time you're in a jam and need some good old-fashioned moisturiser that won't cost the earth, head to the baby counter and pick up some Johnson's baby lotion, slather some comfortingly-scented baby oil on dry legs, or try some 'bottom butter' as a deeply nourishing moisturiser for particularly dry or eczema-ridden areas.

Having an acne break-out? Try the old wives tale method of dabbing Sudocrem (aka nappy cream) onto those red blisters to bring down the swelling and dry out the area, or if you're going on a weekend trip and packing hand luggage-only (i.e. no sprays or aerosols), try packing a tub of baby talcum powder to replace your dry shampoo? And if you forget your cleanser/ miscellar water, just grab a pack of baby wipes to wash the day's dirt and makeup off.

Sister & Co are really onto something with their Dream Cream, so much so they've called it 'Dream Cream For Mother's And Babies'. Good job too as we've been stealing a dollow of the sleep-inducing, calming cream every night.

Trust us, it's almost too good for your little one..
