Testing the Nala's Baby Nighttime Oil

The packaging for the Nala's Baby Nighttime Oil was lovely on first sight very appealing and pretty. Also seemed quite high end if I saw this product in boots or Superdrug. Fairly gender neutral, natural ingredients, lovely smell, easy to apply on my son. I personally really found the illustrations so appealing! The product absorbed easily into my sons skin and he enjoyed it when I used it as part of our bedtime routine.

Very nice cosmetics for children. the smell is over the top. super texture spreads on the skin. the skin smells of coconut for a long time. The most important thing is that the company's products are dermatologically loved, vegan and not tested on animals. The bottle is elegant and does not slip in the hands.

The Nala's Baby Nighttime Oil is wonderful! It absorbs beautifully into skin leaving no sticky residue at all. The ingredients are all completely natural with no harsh chemicals. It smells divine. Packaging is smart, practical and fully recyclable. We have really loved this product and and so happy to have found it after being chosen as a tester - Nala’s baby have definitely gained a new customer with us!

My baby boy is 10 months old now, so he doesn't stay still for long, so I dropped some oil in the bath water for him and worked amazing. Sometimes, I'm using it after bathing, and my little one loves it. It smells divine and delicious because it is made with coconut, apricot, and lavender oil! It's absorbing very fast into the skin, leaving it so soft and hydrated. Nala's nighttime oil is made with 99% natural ingredients and works great for my sensitive and eczema pron skin.

As a mum it makes my life easier because its reassuring and less worrying to know the product is completely safe and free from chemicals. We have enough to worry about as mums. It was also quick and easy to apply and kept my babys skin soft and moisturised. We used it after his bath before bed every other night. He has suffered with heat rash over the summer and I have been able to confidently put this on his skin to soothe it and heal it.

I bathe my toddler daughter every evening as part of her bed time routine. It's a lovely oil that's easy to apply after this bath. As well as being a good moisturiser, it's lovely relaxing smell I am confident helps my daughter relax ready to sleep at night My child is 19mths old (nearly 20 months). I also have a 7 week old baby, and would not hesitate to use it on him either.

We used this oil as part of the wider range the night my daughter transitioned from her cot to a cot bed. As part of her night time routine, we applied after bathing and made a big fuss about her ‘big girl bed’ and spa treatment. Something has worked because she has transitioned beautifully. We have used each night since and have also seen an improvements in her dry and bumpy patches of skin - which other products (including prescribed) haven’t soothed at all! It’s a double thumbs up from us and we will be purchasing again.
