    I absolutely love the Wild Ferns Honeybabe Range. We were so lucky to receive the three amazing products to review thanks to Kidspot and feel very fortunate for the opportunity. Unfortunately when we received our parcel our 10 month old Layla came down with the dreaded chicken pox! The team at Wild Ferns were so helpful when I contacted them for advice as to whether it would be okay to use the products while she had the horrible spots, amazing customer service and advice.

    We started using the range once Layla’s spots were cleared up and fell in love with them all. All three of them smell amazing with the sweet honey fragrance and the massage lotion especially has a relaxing and soothing aroma. Using them on my baby’s soft and gentle skin I felt confident and reassured that the ingredients used were safe and of benefit to her. As a huge lover of baby massage she just loved me using the oil after bath time and it was a great addition to our bedtime routine that really helped her fall asleep well. I must admit mum too had to see just how relaxing the massage oil would be, it would only be fair to sample it myself to form an educated and honest opinion right so hubby had to come to the table and massage my shoulders and I can see what Layla loved about it. My skin just felt soft and smooth and it definitely does have a relaxing affect.

    My favourite product I think would have to be the nappy balm, a good nappy balm has been one of my most essential items with my children. This has a great texture and using the natural bees products it provides a great barrier to protect against nappy rash. Layla is quite possibly the most drolly baby I have ever met and will from time to time flare up with a dribble rash so I also used this under her chin to prevent the rash appearing and it helped keep her soft face skin soft and rash free too which was a great use for us.

    The bodywash and shampoo is a fantastic product with two uses it simplifies bath time and the ingredients are great for young soft skin. It was gentle on her skin and didnt irritate her eyes during hair washing. Plus she came out of the bath smelling sweet and with that beautiful baby soft skin. We would recommend Wild Ferns honeybabe to our parent friends defintely a solid 5 stars from our family.

    we are in the hospital at the moment and haven’t had the opportunity to try our products but as soon as we are released in about 4 weeks we look forward to it.

    Thankyou for the opportunity to review a quality product. I have tried a variety of baby products, and the Honey Babe range has been far superior. The barrier cream is smooth and easily absorbed. The massage oil has a pleasant scent, which is neither overpowering or short lasting. The shampoo and wash is gentle and lathers well. The natural ingredients and performance of the products, makes the Honey Babe range tick all the boxes for what I desire for my babys skincare regime.

    Thanks so much kidspot for give us opportunity to use lovely honey babe products.

    Shampoo and wash is great. Cuz baby doesnt cry and all in one formula so handy and easy to use. Lovely smell too.

    Barrier cream is smooth and easy to apply. Not thick and greecy. It leaves baby bum area soft and moistured for long time. Sweet smell too.

    Massage oil is not greecy and absorbs into skin and leaves skin smooth and sweet smell.

    Will keep continue using these products for my baby.

    Thanks again!

    Hi Guys

  6. Brooke17 25/06/2018 at 5:27 pm

    Absolutely love the shampoo it’s really nice and gentle and lathered up nicleyThe oil was good also after the bath am going to try adding a few drops to the bath tonight after reading someone else’s comment. I do find I still prefer sudocream to the honey barrier cream but it wasnt bad. Thanks for letting me try would definatly purchase this brand

  7. MrsV 25/06/2018 at 11:19 am

    Absolutely loved these products!
    Highly recommend them – work amazingly, smell great, no mess no films of oil etc on the skin, really happy.
    Thanks for the opportunity, the girls had a blast being my little guinea pigs 🙂
    (hope my video came through!)

  8. helibabi 21/06/2018 at 12:11 pm

    Loved the honey babe products. Easily absorbed. Not greasy. Nice ingredients. Long lasting and the smell is on point. Our favourite was the barrier cream the biggest draw card is I can leave it with our 1yo sons nappy stash and not worry about the toddler getting into it. It also doesn’t stain clothes.
    The massage oil is great we put it in the bath after washing the kids hair and it’s a nice little moisturiser for their skin. Also really great in the hands.
    The shampoo and body wash is also great it lathers up nicely and really is no tears. One pump for my son and two for my toddlers long hair. The strongest scent out of all 3 products but yummy non the less. Even smells great the next morning.
    Thanks Kidspot.

    Thank you so much Kidspot and Wild Ferns for the opportunity to trial these amazing products… they look beautiful in their packaging, the texture of all 3 are so luxurious and soothing and gentle on baby’s skin. There was no irritation or signs of discomfort.. She enjoyed the extra massage oil and massage time with mummy. She also had no issues with irritation to eyes when washing hair and face… The pricing could be better, but if they last long then its reasonable and if you want your kids skin to remain protected and healthy. Wash and Shampoo lathers well and doesn’t need much, the oil is not runny and absorbs fast into the skin. Barrier cream was nice and thick and luscious without the stickiness or residue left behind. Overall, i would definitely recommend these products to fellow mums.

  10. michelles 12/06/2018 at 2:02 pm

    Yes please for my little boy 18 month.

  11. neeshadlima 10/06/2018 at 4:14 pm

    Would so love to review this. My girls have dry sick on their face and legs. It would be amazing to try these products along with the shampoo and massage oils. It would make such a big difference to us specially around the cold winter months.

  12. Emma 09/06/2018 at 10:58 am

    Yes please would love to be the lucky mum to video review this product. My girl get dry skin around her legs, I also wouldn’t mind using on my face as I’m struggling to find something that works. Fingers crossed !

  13. Mpokipoki 09/06/2018 at 9:53 am

    Would love to try this on my 1year old she has very sensitive skin be great to find a product that dosent cause problems for her

  14. Madsid123_ 07/06/2018 at 12:31 pm

    I have heard so much about this amazing product range but after reading this article I think it is a must have for my kids. My younger boy who is not even 2 years old yet has a sensitive and dry skin. We are advised by doctors to use only natural skin care products for him and the older one too. So we always keep a look to try smething which can suit both of my kids, chemical free, all natural and soothing for their skin. I would surely love to be part of the trial team for Wild Ferns® Honey Babe Skincare. Thanks

  15. jakesmum6 26/05/2018 at 7:48 pm

    Would love to try these for my boy. I’m always looking for things with a bit more natural ingredients. the honey in it is very appealing to me.

  16. Ferguz 26/05/2018 at 6:24 pm

    These products sound like they would be perfect on my little girl and her skin which plays up.

  17. Sam203 26/05/2018 at 9:44 am

    This would be awesome for my 5 month old babe to try we love the benefits of honey in skincare products and she also really enjoys a baby massage at bath time to relax her for her night sleep

  18. Mummyof3 26/05/2018 at 7:44 am

    Would love to try this with Mr 16 months. Myself and my 8 year old have eczema and get especially dry and sore skin in winter. My son may also be getting it. It would be good to use the product on the whole family (miss 5 with ‘normal’ skin included!) and would love to see if the oil and cream help with our dry skin. Hair washing is always a battle with my big girls too so a sensitive shampoo they can all share would be great.

  19. marinawhi 24/05/2018 at 8:22 pm

    These products would be a perfect addition to my 7 month old honey haired baby’s routine

  20. Kyleeevans 24/05/2018 at 3:01 pm

    This sounds like it would be perfect for my 10month old. Would love to try please 🙂
