Halos N Horns Review and Giveaway

* Comp now closed our winner is Danielle Welsh*


Earlier this year I reviewed and did a giveaway of Halos N Horns gorgeous range of products. They have just added 2 more to their range and asked us at baby budgeting to give these a little trial too. We adore these products so were very  happy to oblige.

First up was the Halos n Horns bubble bath and body wash.  £3.49  (250ml)

The smell was lovely and  it can be used for hair and body wash as well as bubble bath so fab value  as you only need to use a tiny bit too. It is made with natural conditioners and plant derived ingreadients  and its kind t o eys too. Brilliant stuff. I love multi tasking products, they are manna to the budgeting momma.

Next up was  Halo N Horns Moisturising Lotion .

This was a really gentle, delicately fragranced mosituriser that went on  smoothly and didn’t feel at all greasy. It’s hypoallergenic and gentle enough to be used on your little ones face as well as their body. 

Made with naturally derived moisturisers, it contains Vitamin E to help protect the skin, Sunflower Oil to condition the skin and naturally derived glycerin to help moisturise.  And great news for mums concerned about what they put on their baby’s skin, there are none of the harsh ingredients that can irritate the skin, so no SLS and no Parabens. The lotion costs £3.99 (250 ml).

Both items and indeed the whole range of Halos N Horns goodies will now be stocked at Boots.

    My best hair washing tip is get one of those rings that go around your little ones head. Saves their eyes and just think of the photos to show potential suitors. In the future!

    No matter what I tried when it came to washing my son’s hair he cried and screamed. I found a helpful thing was to cover his eyes with a fannel and wash his hair as quickly as possible!

    When washing my best friend’s son’s hair I just make a game of it with his wee toy watering can. He seems to love it.

    Have something on hand to distract them whilst you do it, some kind of puppet or book they can read to take their mind off it.

    Lay him on his back to rinse shampoo. No soap can get in his eyes as back of head in water.

    We play “water bed” so little ones lie down in the bath using my arm as a pillow – same as Granny Jackie says above – as they are lying down nothing goes in the eyes.

    Hold the child over the bath & wash the hair so no soap or water goes in the eyes.

    Definately holding a flannel over your childs face when washing their hair helps, but it can still be a struggle at the best of times with a 1 year old! I suggest bracing yourself and keep one arm at the ready to catch a wriggly baby!

    I started taking my two year old to swimming lessons and as his confidence in the water grew his fear of having his hair washed lessened.

    Everyone starts singing and then ask them to shut their eyes as if you’re having a game. Then pour on the water slowly, shampoo carefully and use your hand like a visor when rinsing out.

    I found that you need to make sure they know it’s coming so I say ‘ready (name) one, two, three) and then putting the water over them! Also start putting water over their face from a very early age, with the same routine as above. I have subscribed too

    I just always tell my kiddies to look up to the stars when I was their hair – that way nothing goes in their eyes. x

    Whatever you do, just get everything ready to go and do it quickly. If possible try to rinse it off with their head backwards, but my two tend to jump to a standing position – so quickly seems to work best.

    Following blog as well.

    I agree – make it fun and there’s no tears! Maybe he’s unusual, but my toddler loves having water poured over his head!

    I usually have nursery rhymes playing so my two boys dont really notice me washing there hair as they are having so much fun singing and splashing

  37. December 18, 2010 / 6:43 pm

    Already subscribed, hair washing – just do it quick, get them used to it. They soon learn.

  38. December 18, 2010 / 9:39 pm

    My tip is to buy a pair of swimming goggles and get your child to wear them when you are washing their hair. The water then doesn’t get in their eyes and makes bath time much more fun!
