Baby Bag Essential: Avene Cicalfate+ Restorative Protective Cream
Great For: Babies, infants, and adults
Multi-purpose Benefits: Calms irritated skin, treats nappy rash, soothes scratches, grazes, cuts and sunburn

The Avene Cicalfate+ Cream is the perfect healing solution for little ones and the rest of the family, including mum. Its thick and creamy does-it-all formula is ideal for minor irritations or boo-boos as it boasts skin-repairing properties, and is also made for sensitive and irritated skin types.

Avene’s cream creates the optimal conditions for healing, thanks to the likes of an antibacterial complex and Avene’s signature skin-repairing Thermal Spring Water, which is featured throughout each and every Avene skincare formula. This cult-status water is proven to decrease discomfort by up to 55% from the very first application while cooling skin by 2°C in just three minutes.

2. The Bath and Body Emollient

Baby Bag Essential: Pharmaceris Emotopic Lipid-Replenishing Formula 3 in 1
Great For: Babies, infants, and adults
Multi-purpose Benefits: Oily bath milk (for newborns, infants, and adults), nourishing body cream (from 6 months), and body wash (from 6 months)

The Emotopic Lipid-Replenishing Formula is the soothing choice for those who have very dry, flaky, sensitive, and even atopic skin. Its creamy formula is great to use between flare-ups to calm symptoms of dry skin, such as itching, tightness, and roughness.

Its emollient-rich formula gets its calming and moisturising properties from a cocktail of hemp, canola, and soybean oils, rich in replenishing omegas 3, 6, and 9. And I love the fact that it has a 3-in-1 formula, which is great for taking on overnight trips to visit family and friends as you don’t have to worry about packing multiple products.

3. The Refreshing Water Mist

Multi-purpose skincare for babys La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water Spray

Baby Bag Essential: La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water Spray
Great For: Babies, infants, and adults
Multi-purpose Benefits: Cools you down in hot weather, hydrates, calms irritations, soothes nappy rash, and decongests the skin

The ultimate multi-purpose skincare item for a baby bag is a soothing water spray. Which do we recommend? The La Roche-Posay Thermal Water. Its portable and durable design means it can be taken anywhere, so you can get a soothing spritz wherever you are! You can even use the water mist for cleaning up sticky fingers or mouths when you’re on the move.

Specially formulated for sensitive skin, the antioxidant, anti-irritant, and anti-itching water spray gently hydrates, softens, and calms delicate baby’s skin, thanks to its minimalist hypoallergenic formula. But I totally wouldn’t blame parents for sneaking a quick spritz for themselves too.
