Cussons Mum & Me Sleep Tight Balm Review & Bump Gift Pack COMPETITION


Usually bedtime is time to brush teeth go for a peepee, stories then lights off! My little Angels are not little babies anymore but, when they were babies, we used to have relaxing bubble baths and baby massages, then I'd try to sing them to sleep with a bottle of the good old white stuff.

I was asked if I liked to try something from the Cussons; Mum & Me Range.  They offer a superb range of products for mums and baby covering sleep, hair & skin for Bump; New mum & Baby

As my sons are 2 & 4. I decided the to try something new, we could all enjoy; the Sleep Tight Balm

At first I found the balm a little hard to get out of the tin, it soon becomes soft. A wonderful aroma of Camomile stays in the air, the smell is strong but not over powering.  It feels rich and silky in my hands, soaks into the skin fast, so be careful not to rub it all in your own hands. I would have prefer a bigger pot.   

My sons are used to be creamed but not having a massage, my eldest loved it, he relaxed straight away. However, my little one was a wigglechops and had the giggles a few times.  Giving them a rub down brought back fond memories too...
Who remembers the first time they gave their baby a massage?  When I applied the balm into my sons feet, their little toes splayed wide open just as they had done when they were little baby. That made me melt.  

After a couple of sessions the wriggling stopped and I now have two very relaxed kiddies at bedtime. Not all the time but sometimes they fall asleep immediately. I believe the balm plus a little massage followed by a story definitely helps them drift off to sleep land!

I recommend its a lovely way to have some one to one bonding, even with a bigger kids!!!
