Asda have introduced two new products to their Little Angels range of children's hygiene products - a Dry and Sensitive Body Wash and a Dry and Sensitive Shampoo - and they sent us through some samples to try. With 3-year-old Pierre being the youngest member of the Madhouse Family and none of the Mini-Testers having any skin problems, we usually tend to go for brightly coloured and nicely fragranced bath products, but I reviewed these imagining that I was still bathing a baby, which is the target audience.
Both products are gentle, pure products, which is reflected in the rather bland packaging. They contain no parabens, fragrance or colours (which the Madhouse Mini-testers thought was a shame, but I explained that babies and some older children need fragrance-free products because they have allergies or skin that is sensitive to perfume, colours and other artificial additives).
The Body Wash made some nice bubbles when I ran it under the tap in the bath and also worked quite adequately when lathered up on a sponge. It doesn't create masses of foam, but when you're bathing a baby, you don't want too many bubbles anyway. Again, the shampoo would work perfectly on a baby's fine hair and it was well-suited to Pierre's short hair and Juliette's fine hair, but I needed a nourishing conditioner to use with it on Sophie's thick mane.
If you're looking for a mild, baby-friendly range of products that are designed specifically with dry, delicate skin in mind, you could do a lot worse, especially at those prices !
