Tried and tested: Family-friendly products

Here at BD, we all have one thing in common – our love for our families. That is why this month we sought to find the best Family Friendly Products on the market and put them to the test.

What it is: Cicaplast Baume B5+ Balm Cream is a multi-repairing hydrating balm for dry skin with a rich nourishing texture that can be used for multiple purposes on adults, children and babies (including babies from 3+ months) with sensitive skin.

My Experience: La Roche-Posay's Cicaplast Baume B5 has always been a cult staple on my beauty shelf. Designed to be used across your face and body it is such a versatile product! I suffer from sensitive skin, so anytime I feel my face needs a little TLC, I use Cicaplast before applying my make-up and love that the formula is white mark free! The gentle formulation means it is perfect for the whole family, with the product being recommended from ages 3months. La Roche Posay’s Cicaplast Baume is a universal product everybody should own.

What it is: Burts Bees Beeswax Lip Balm nourishes and makes your lips feel luxurious. Infused with power packed Beeswax to condition skin and antioxidant Vitamin E to richly moisturise and soften lips, this lip balm nourishes dry lips while keeping them revitalised and hydrated.

My Experience: Burt's Bees iconic Beeswax lip balm is the perfect staple product, with a pleasant peppermint scent and matte finish, that the whole family can use. This pocket friendly lip balm is infused with ultra conditioning natural beeswax, vitamin E, and refreshing peppermint oil.

Editors Pick: Classic Carmex Jar – Shannah

What it is: The cult classic Carmex jar is an icon. Made with camphor and menthol, in a soothing base of cocoa butter and waxes, it goes to work turning ravaged lips into very kissable ones, very fast!

My Experience:This staple is always with me. It has a really gentle fragrance and its perfect for keeping my lips hydrated at all times.I keep it beside my bed and in my purse. Carmex is a classic lip balm I have always relied on and it's really a tried and true product that be used by the whole family!

Ultra gentle, it is suitable for all skin types, making it the perfect product for the whole family to use. Formulated with Sustainable Shea Butter, Tahitian Coconut Milk Oil and Vitamin E, it leaves you with soft and moisturised skin. As a added plus it also is a vegan formula.

Editors Pick: Du'It - Tough Body – Lucy

What it is: This nourishing body lotion and best body moisturiser is a non-greasy formula that’s supercharged with a potent combination of moisturising, antioxidant and brightening actives, perfect for dry and sensitive skin.

My Experience: Du'It have done it again! Having tried the lip balm and hand cream I've already been so impressed with the brand. Lo and behold they did not disappoint. In the winter my skin gets very itchy from the dryness and flakes off. I've tried different body butters and lotions but whilst they soothe my skin temporarily, it still goes back to dry texture. The scent for the Tough Body is inoffensive, and doesnt stay on the skin so you dont even know you have it on!. Overall so good.

Editors Pick: Bioderma Cleansing Oil – Scarlette

What it is: Imagine a luxurious oil that effortlessly melts away even waterproof makeup, leaving your skin feeling clean, refreshed, and oh-so-soft. This is no ordinary cleanser, it's the Bioderma  Cleansing Oil. 

My Experience: Bioderma Cleansing Oil really takes the day off. I find it melts away every last bit of make-up on my face with just the tiniest amount. It's a non-foaming cleanser due to it being oil based, and I find it way more moisturising than your standard foaming cleanser. It can also be used as a body wash too, leaving my skin feeling clean, smooth and soft.
