Ever since she started bathing, her morning bath is usually a diluted milk bath (~100ml of breast milk for a tub of water) where I use a pea-sized amount of baby shampoo and no soap at all but recently, I’ve noticed that some parts of her skin feels dry. The doctor at the polyclinic also commented that her skin was dry and advised me to apply more moisturiser for her.
Just as I was contemplating on the brand of soap to use on her skin, I received some products from Pigeon’s Newborn Pure range – the purifying body wash and moisturising lotion. What’s interesting is that it’s Natulayer formula claims to offer double layer protection by using ingredients which vernix (protective waxy layer found on newborn babies) and ceramide (moisture-capturing lipids which maintain supple skin. Sounds good.

The body wash is a clear watery liquid with a light, pleasant fragrance. It glides well on Elise’s skin and doesn’t foam up.
Before I received the moisturising lotion, I was using a spray lotion from another brand (because I’m lazy and it’s easier to spray) but it had a distinct smell which I couldn’t quite call fragrant. It smelled earthy and I usually use about 5 sprays to cover her entire body.
Pigeon to the rescue! I like the smell of this one and I just need about two pumps to apply on the whole of Elise’s body. If I use this on myself, will I get skin as smooth as hers too? Hopefully it’ll help to keep her skin baby smooth for as long as possible!
It must be really comfortable, because she dozed off after her bath.
