Gentle Baby Regimen with Skinfix

Every skin is different and it might require different regimen but all babies have something in common, their skin is thinner, more delicate and definitely more sensitive and much more prone to dryness than adult skin, therefore it requires special protection. Baby skin should only be exposed to mild, child friendly products, which will nourish their skin, protect its natural balance and maintain the outer, protective layer. Skinfix can offer it all.

Gentle Baby Regimen with SkinfixSkinfix Inc. is a Canadian company that makes healing balms and daily care products that treat skin’s most vexing conditions. Their story starts around 1850 in Victorian England when a Yorkshire merchant compounded an active skin healing ointment. Through the years they have changed their “place of business” but their formulas are still compounded using the scientific traditions of pharmacopeia.

Now they return to Brittan.

Gentle Baby Regimen with Skinfix - Skinfix Baby RangeSkinfix, has launched a range of skin care products onto the UK market. Their collection is dermatologist recommended, fragrance-free and use natural ingredients. At present there is four product design especially with babies in mind:

MyPure Choice – Grahams Manuka Honey Shampoo and Conditioner

Grahams Manuka Honey Shampoo and Conditioner

This month MyPure choice was Manuka Honey Shampoo and Conditioner by Grahams.

They are suitable for normal to dry hair but particularly developed for those with a sensitive skin. A gentle blend of organic and natural ingredients it is supposed to relieve and protect a dry and sensitive scalp.

Both, shampoo and conditioner are hypo-allergenic, sodium lauryl sulphate and propolene glycol free and they both contain no petrochemicals or mineral oils. They come in a 250ml / 8.4 Fl oz bottle and are manufactured in Australia.

Grahams Manuka Honey Shampoo and Conditioner can be purchased from MyPure at a cost of £14.99 each.

I do not suffer from dry hair. I would classify my hair as normal, but I do suffer from dry skin. Sometimes, especially close to the hairline it’s getting extremely dry to the point of flaking (no it is not dandruff if you are wondering). I chose this product as I wanted to test if they can help with this problem and to my pleasant surprise they did… a bit too fast if you ask me as I wasn’t able to take any pictures of my dry hairline before I used the product… I just wasn’t expecting that they would clear it up after just two uses.

Manuka Honey Shampoo and Conditioner by Grahams

Both shampoo and conditioner are green in colour; the conditioner being a bit thicker as you would expect. They both have a wonderful coconut scent, which is not overpowering but you are not able to miss it.

So how are these products in use?

Hmmm, they are different to your standard shop bought shampoo and conditioner. If I was to compare them to most superstore shampoos they wouldn’t get a great review but I shouldn’t really do this as Grahams Manuka Honey Shampoo and Conditioner are not your standard superstore products, so I will just tell you about my feeling whilst using them.

First step: shampoo… as per directions: massage into the hair and scalp working into a lather… and here is where I hit the wall… no matter how much and how long I was working it in it didn’t want to lather on the first wash, it wasn’t budging at all… on the second wash it lathers, a little. I hear that this is a good sign as too much lathering isn’t really needed. However the point is it is not so easy to get it to lather at all. After you rinse thoroughly your hair is left feeling soft but messy… at this point I couldn’t imagine not using a conditioner or I would never get a comb through it.

Step two: conditioner… as per instructions: massage well through scalp and hair ends; leave for 1 minute; rinse thoroughly. No problems here. I am able to follow all instructions without hitting the wall, but… after I rinse it thoroughly my hair aren’t left smooth and silky… they are still a tangled mess… I am still feeling like a need a conditioner to finish the process, but apparently I have already used it 🙁

So you see, this is why I stated that they shouldn’t be compared to a supermarket product. Grahams Manuka Honey Shampoo and Conditioner will take care of your problem (aka dry scalp) but they might just leave you in a bit of a disappointed state as to the final condition of your hair.

I resolved this problem by applying a leave in conditioner afterwards.

Will I repurchase this product?Grahams Manuka Honey Shampoo & Conditioner

I would, but only because Grahams Manuka Honey Shampoo and Conditioner took care of my flaky dry skin on the hairline. I have struggled for a long time to find a product which will “cure” it. I have tried using a cream to make my skin moisturized but this just made my hair look greasy, I have tried several shampoos and conditioners for dry hair but they didn’t seem to work either… Grahams Manuka Honey Shampoo and Conditioner did the job, and did the job well.

I did find something which doesn’t match up and it is bothering me… the box states that the product is suitable for all hair types whilst the bottle itself states “for normal to dry hair”… so which one is it? Or it doesn’t really make any difference?

Do you have any hair must haves product, you would recommend?
