It was love at first touch & smell. I swear. As a mum with a trained nose thanks to working in an aromatherapy clinic for a few years, I know a good product when I smell it. Especially when there’re essential oils and I want to use the best on my babies skin.
I came across Shoosha in a National Post article about eco-friendly products that are on the rise and indeed it is. The Shoosha brand is growing and expanding coming to a shop near you. In fact, I just came across Shoosha at my local health store. What a delight!
So what is Shoosha all about?
True. Organic. Skincare. No hidden junk in it what so ever. The quality is utterly amazing. I’d have to say the best I’ve used as well and the beautiful combination of the essential oils used from lavender and chamomile to lavender and vanilla infused Baby Massages oil…the Protective Diaper Butter (which is stellar!)
My girls are teething right now and with that can come a sore little tush. To soothe and heal the redness around the tush I’ve used this. Redness was gone after the next diaper change. I love this product so much because A) it works B) quality C) it’s organic and smells amazing. It’s loaded with rejuvenating oils to repair skins tissues like Evening Primrose, Calendula, Coconut, Lavender for that heavenly smell(this is high-quality lavender too!) The diaper balm is cloth diaper safe!
One of the things I look forward to when bathing my girls is following up with an infant massage using this oil. Shoosha Calm Baby Massage Oil. It’s gentle & moisturizing ingredients infused with lavender and vanilla will take you and baby away. It’s so rich in vitamins(E from the Safflower & Sunflower for example) yet light for massage and it leaves my babies unbelievable softer than imaginable and smelling like heaven.
Shoosha Gentlest Baby Wash & Shampoo is exactly as it states. A perfect wash for balancing and washing your babies skin. It won’t strip away your babies natural oil secretion(that is still developing), it’s light and when you open the bottle…Take a nice deep breath in. I love washing my girl’s hair with this too. So gentle & beautiful. It’s got Aloe Vera juice infused with Chamomile, Coconut Cream, Lavender & Vanilla(their signature scent) and so much more goodness. Do check it out!
Replenish Baby Lotion. Okay, we all use this! I couldn’t resist. With cooler weather and getting the heat on we all were getting a little dry and I wanted to smell and be as soft as my twins.
It is so fresh and made without preservatives that it comes with an expiration date. It’s made in small batches. I love fresh skin care and love that feature. It’s got a great balance of oils such as Calendula, Evening Primrose, Safflower, Almond Oil. Perfect nourishment for babies skin.
Shoosha Rejuvenate Stretch Mark Serum is a must-have for mums in the house. I’ve been using this for just over 2 months and have seen a significant decrease in pigmentation in my beloved tiger stripes. Also sun damage in on my face. I have one little-pigmented spot under my eye by my cheekbone(in between the two) and it’s getting lighter and lighter day by day. But I feel this is a must-have for other reasons as well. It’s super rejuvenating, to me this is like liquid gold for your skin care as well. Use at night before going to bed to hydrate and repair your skin. I can be clumsy in the kitchen and often will get a burn here and there and I use this immediately when I get a burn. In fact, I got a bad burn just last night! It’s on my face and I applied this oil on it immediately. Today it is not red at all. It’s tender to touch but I am confident it will heal and not leave a scar.
It’s loaded with healing oils. Rich oils like Borage, Grapeseed, Lavender(benefit: to heal burns!), Olive Fruit Oil & Tamanu. Lavender & Sweet Orange & Tangerine infused. It smells amazing but made with the most anti-inflammatory ingredients which are why I think this is great all around. In fact, I think the citrus oils in this helps lift the pigmentation. This is a must have oil. Get it.
Oh, the early days of breastfeeding and treating sore, dry, cracked nipples. Well here is the ultimate healing butter for your breasts. Shoosha Rescue Nipple Butter brings instant relief I swear! It’s a miracle pot of goodness of oils & butter. Sea Buckthorn is one of favourite skin care secrets for its healing properties and to restore delicate skin. This is another must have as it has multiple healing properties not just for the breasts. This is going on my face to heal my oil burn as well. It’s got Vitamins A, C, E and Chamomile, Cocoa Butter(you don’t need to remove this balm prior to breastfeeding. It’s completely safe), Avocado oil, Beeswax, Sunflower. Um…yeah…know a mum expecting? Are you breastfeeding and have sore callused nipples? Get this product.
Sensitive Skin Laundry Soap. Okay, babywearing & cloth diapering folks I think this soap is a must for when washing your carriers and diapers. It’s liquid and has gentle, non-toxic ingredients to be gentle on your babywearing textiles. If you use it for regular laundry you need to use a natural stain remover as this detergent does not remove stains. One I love is by Buncha Farmers Stain Remover.
This whole line is utterly amazing. If you see it at a store near you, pick it up. You will love it!
