The My Expert Midwife Mega Mild Cleansing Wash won Bronze in the Mother&Baby Awards 2024 for Best Bathtime Product.

Testing the My Expert Midwife Mega Mild Cleansing Wash

One tester said: "I would recommend this Mega Mild Cleansing Wash. Because it is developed by midwives, dermatologically tested, suitable for sensible skin and paediatrician-approved, you know a lot of thought and care has gone into its development. I like the packaging and found it really easy to use whilst holding a baby in one hand. The QR code on the packaging takes you directly to some helpful hints and tips for caring for your baby's skin."

"I loved this wash," commented another parent. "At first I was put off a bit by the lack of significant lather, but it has very good coverage without. It didn’t wash away immediately once it hit water and I was able to get a good clean with very minimal usage. It still felt silky and substantial for a long time after starting to wash. The product is very gentle with no harsh, artificial smell or colouring. My baby had dry patches on his thighs that cleared up within a few days of switching to this product. It also worked well to clean and soothe my son's nappy rash areas as they healed and where it was most important to clean the build-up of sweat and waste residue. We had zero rashes or dry patches while using this product. His skin felt less soft and healthy once I switched back to his old washing product. I only wish I had this with my first child. She had eczema issues that I think could have benefited from a gentle, good-quality wash like this."

One mum said: "Overall I found this product to be good. I liked the way it produced a lather when I used it, and the texture of the product seemed to be soft and gentle and did not irritate my son's skin. I never needed a lot of product, therefore the amount in the bottle has lasted a few months and I chose to bathe my son daily, and therefore found this product good value for money. When washed away, my son's skin feels soft. There is no sticky residue, and the ingredients feel premium. In terms of the style of the bottle, I liked the closure of the bottle, with the push closure. I have travelled with this product, and the bottle stayed closed, however, I did use a zip lock bag in case it spilt but it didn’t."

Final thoughts

The My Expert Midwife Mega Mild Cleansing Wash is super soft and gentle on your baby's skin. It is a cleansing wash which is dermatologically tested, paediatrician-approved, fragrance-free and PH-balanced, which makes it perfect for sensitive skin, resulting in no irritations or rashes whilst still producing a lather. Although a fragrance would be nice to have for parents who prefer a nice scent.

The type of bottle the Mega Mild comes in makes it easy to open with one hand, allowing you to concentrate on your baby, but also saves product, as the lid pushes down dispensing the right amount and not washing away immediately, stopping you from using more. This also makes this the perfect cleansing wash to travel with, as leaks are less likely!
