I was a little bit excited when I discovered that QV was doing a baby/kids range of body products. I was already a huge fan of their adult Face Moisturising Day cream and used it frequently on myself and my clients when I did their make up. It works on all skin types, has SPF 30+ protection, it’s pH-balanced, it’s low on the irritant, free from fragrance, colour and lanolin and isn’t greasy.


The best part is that is available at practically any chemist and is super affordable. These are all ticks in my book!

My little Archer (9 months) was experiencing some dry skin all over his back. It didn’t seem to be irritating him, but it was red, scaly and dry and no amount of moisturising seemed to fix it. That’s when I began to use the QV Kid’s range on him. I started with a couple of drops of the Baby Bath Oil in his warm bath. The water goes a little cloudy once the oil hits, but is smooth and feels lovely to the touch.

Next, I washed him with the Baby Gentle Wash. Just a little squeeze on the hand, rub together to foam it up then wash all over the body. The great thing about this wash is that it is suitable to use on dry skin, eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis. I have friends with babies with cases of eczema and I know they have tried every product under the sun to not flair up the skin.

The last step to the process is to use the Baby Moisturising Cream once baby is dry. The ingredience is formulated with Emollient, Humectant and Occludent. It also contains Squalane, a component found in the skin’s natural oil which helps seal in the skin’s own moisture. I love moisturising my babies – it give me a good chance to give them a little massage to help prepare them for a good nights sleep (most nights anyways!).

Archer’s skin, needless to say, cleared up within a few days and was back to it’s perfect baby skin form! Not a trace of dryness or redness and it has remained perfect for months. Couldn’t be happier with the result.

I also have a 2, almost 3 year old, Hudson that I use the Kids Wash on. This is a lovely gentle wash foaming soap free cleanser which can be used morning and night. The best most fun part is that the wash has colourful microbeads which contain important vitamins A (retinyl palmitate) and E (tocopheryl acetate). He of course is not interested in the vitamins but he loves to count and point out the colourful beads to me then wash himself and see them all over his legs and arms!

  1. Thank you for this post. I have a 5 month old and and she has had the same thing appear on her beautiful skin. I’ll be off to the chemist in the morning. I do love your posts but would love to see blogs on your mummy life the “practical fashion” for busy mums.

    1. Good luck! Let me know if it clears up your baby’s skin. I would love to know if it works for you too. Practical fashion for busy mums….PJ’s?!!! HA! Im all about the conformable, stretchy, oversized, nothing that can’t be stained, flat shoes style for my days with the babies. You don’t have to compromise style for comfort though – just put a little extra thought into your outfit before you walk out the door – I find that planning it the night before is even better. Some suggestions are – choose sandals over rubber thongs, an ironed t-shirt with skinny jeans and finished it off with a blazer and a necklace or simple bracelet. I find a blazer dresses it up any outfit but is still super comfy and you can still move and play with your kids. Maxi dresses are another great choice for summer. Shorts, a singlet and an oversized shirt over the top is another fun option. Hope that helps! x
