Inlight Organic Skincare Products Review – For Mum and Baby
Inlight Organic Skincare is an artisan, luxury and 100% organic skincare brand based in Cornwall. Their range of products are made with pure, organic ingredients and a passion for beauty, well-being and attention to detail. Inlight skincare combines science with nature’s alchemy to create luxurious, effective and safe products that nourish the skin and nurture the soul.
The brand has just relaunched a collection of products designed for new mums and I’ve tried two of them — the Organic Restorative Body Butter and the Nyp&Baby Calendula Balm.
The Organic Restorative Body Butter is a gorgeous buttery balm that makes a wonderful, pampering and restorative treatment for dry or sensitive skin anywhere on the body. It’s also a great bump butter for toning your skin and preventing/softening stretch marks during and after pregnancy. It’s suitable for all skin types even really sensitive ones that are prone to rashes.
The formula is water-free and oil based and melts beautifully in your hands. You scoop it out with the little wooden spoon that comes with it or simply use your fingers. It’s a super-concentrated balm with a high concentration of Vitamin E from evening primrose, jojoba, sesame oil, beta carotene from carrot oil and well-known rejuvenating transretinoic acid from rose hip oil. Other star ingredients are coconut, arnica, witch hazel, nettle and billberry. It’s got a high concentration of phytonutrients and all bio-active plant extracts are produced in-house. Of course, it’s completely free from synthetics and chemical fragrances.
Though the formula is very rich, it still sinks in effortlessly and doesn’t leave my skin feeling sticky. I use it on my growing baby bump to soothe and replenish my stretching skin and to avoid stretch marks. I love using it as it feels so luxurious and truly pampering. I love that it’s all natural too and the scent is amazing — uplifting yet relaxing at the same time.
The Nyp&Baby Calendula Balm is a multi-purpose ointment for mum and baby. It’s great as a nipple cream for breastfeeding mums and also makes a very effective nappy rash cream for babies.
This ointment is made with 100% organic food grade oils and plant extracts including calendula, marigold, olive and rose oil and lavender. It’s got soothing properties thanks to its high concentration of calendula and other bio-active botanical ingredients with healing propereties so it’s ideal for soothing and repairing sore nipples and red baby bottoms. It can be used by the whole family to soothe any dry, irritated or delicate skin.
The rich balm does not alter the flavour of breastmilk and is free from synthetics, chemical fragrances, alcohol, water and lanolin.
I’ll be breastfeeding again in a few months time when my second baby is born and I can’t wait to use this then. For now I’ve used it as a nappy rash cream on my toddler and to heal some dry patches on her body. It’s lovely and effective and a tiny bit goes a long way.
The Restorative Body Butter costs £49.00 for a beautiful 60ml glass jar and the Nyp&Baby Calendula Balm costs £19.50 for a 75ml tube. What I also love about Inlight is that you can order sample/travel sizes for most of their products so that you can try them before buying a full sized product.
