It’s well documented that Munchkin has always had problematic skin; not really dry, but incredibly itchy and sensitive. He has also suffered psoriasis on his scalp which required hospital treatment last winter and saw him lose a significant amount of hair across his crown.
Ever since he was born, his toiletries have been in dull packaging. Plain white. Or worse, brown with pharmacy labels. He’s missed out on all those brightly coloured, fun designs. He’s only ever known strong smelling shampoo, fragrance free bubble free wash and followed by creams and ointment. But recently we’ve noticed a huge improvement so when Vosene asked us to try their new range of shampoos, we didn’t hesitate.
Vosene is a name that I trust. The original shampoo was a staple when I was little, but now they have new formulations, especially for children.
I was thrilled when they arrived. Child friendly packaging – bright colours, cute little drawings and fun shaped bottles!
The 2-in-1 shampoos come in two fragrances: Super Strawberry for shiny hair and Fresh Melon for soft healthy looking hair. Both smells are strong enough to detect with out being overpowering and our favourite is the strawberry.
Both shampoos are tear free and tangle free, dermatologically tested and paraben and MIT free.
Munchkin was really excited to try these out. The shampoos are clear and feel thick in your hand. They lather up really nicely, releasing the fruity aromas and rinse easily.
We were also sent the hair and body wash for sensitive skin.
Whilst this product comes in a plain white bottle, there is a cute little drawing on the label. Again this is a tear free, paraben and MIT free formulation and is dermatologically tested. The chamomile and calming lavender fragrance is very subtle and doesn’t lather up massively, but left Munchkin’s skin clean and clear without any itching. As this is for hair and body, we’ve found this useful for taking swimming, washing the chlorine away straight away.
I’m really pleased to have found products that whilst appeal to Munchkin’s eye are formulated for such sensitive skin.
The whole range of Vosene for Kids is available from supermarkets and chemists.
