Few months ago, I was invited to do a product review on Pigeon Sakura Range Baby Toiletries, their latest range in skincare products.
I've been using Buds baby products ever since Caleb was born and continue using it on Caven. For skincare I would to go for organic and natural, free from harsh chemical such as Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS), Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLES) (which widely used in personal care products such as soaps, shampoo and toothpaste) parabens, mineral oils, petrochemicals and so on.
So, when I was approached by Pigeon Malaysia to review their products, I did a quick check on the website about the ingredients. I was quite happy because of their reputable brand, their products are free from chemical contents, no paraben, sulphates and coloring agents. Best of all, this is the Sakura range where they are using natural Sakura extract that has many benefits on skin. One of them is anti-inflammatory properties which suitable for sensitive skin and ezcema.
I received the whole range of Sakura skincare product which consists of Baby Wash 2-in-1 (200ml), Baby Shampoo (200ml), Baby Milky Lotion (200ml), Baby Oil (200ml) and Baby Powder (200g). All were nicely packed in flowery cloth texture packaging.
This is when whole army lining up one by one.
Can you guess which of the 5 that I was eagerly to try out? Oh yes, Pigeon Baby Wash 2-in-1. As a
- Baby wash 2in1
This is Caven having his morning bath with Pigeon Baby Wash 2-in-1. It came in clear liquid and quite bubbly to use. Only a small amount will do and it lather so well.
And the scent, it smell sooooo good!. Flowery, musky and very earthy scent filled up the whole bathroom almost instantly. It was easily to rinse off and Caven smells so good while his skin feels so soft and stay moisturized. I can't help but pick him up for a sniff throughout the day :)
- Baby Shampoo (200ml)
As Caven's hair is not much and one bottle of Pigeon Baby Wash 2-in-1 is more than enough and can lasts him for quite some time, I used this for Caleb instead. As I said earlier, I am a
I tried Pigeon Baby Shampoo on Caleb and very happy as it rinse off quite easily. After rinse, his hair feels so soft and manageable. Combing his curly hair become so easy nowaday and he didn't run away when he see me coming with a hair brush :)
I like it. Caleb like it. Everybody is happy.
Oh, it smell equally good and most important, it tear-free. I know my son can whine like a girl when something like this goes into his eyes.
- Baby Milky Lotion (200ml)
I don't normally massage my baby because he flips, tosses and turns as soon as he's on his back. So, after bathing Caven, I'd put on his cloth diaper and dressed him up in the speed of lightning. But for the last few weeks, I started to massage him with Pigeon Baby Milky Lotion and amazingly, he calmed down. No more turning and flipping (yeah!). I guess he enjoyed it so much that he decided to stay still for me to
What I did was squeezed out a 50 cents size on my palm, rubbed it with both hands. Once it got warm, I started to massage him beginning on his forehead, cheeks, neck, chest, both armpits, arms (but not his hands because he stuff his hands in his mouth), tummy and all the way goes down to his butt, both legs and feets. It feels good because it's not sticky at all. It got absorps into his skin so fast and it leaves his skin soft and supple.
Not to mention he smells so flowery too.... haha
- Baby powder (200g)
I like the texture of this baby powder. It is so fine and easy to apply. The smell is just as same as the other products, musky and flowery. That is why I can't resist to sniff him even when he asleep. Really love the scent.
- Baby Oil (200ml)
Frankly speaking, I don't like baby oil because in my mindset they are greasy, messy and very very oily which explained why I don't normally apply it on both of my kiddos. But I decided to give it a try with Pigeon Baby Oil. I pour a little bit on my palm, rubbed it together and started to massage Caven's chest, tummy and butt and watdayyaknow, it absorps quikly and didn't leave any greasy feeling. Love the scent, as always :)
Sometimes, Caven and Caleb have this flaky/dirty stuff in their inner ears. So, what I did was, I took a cotton bud, dabbed it with a little Pigeon Baby Oil, gently wipe around the areas. After a few rounds of wiping, all the dirty stuffs came off on the cotton buds and leave their ears clean and smell fresh.
Overall, I'm quite happy with Pigeon Sakura Baby products and most important, I really love the scent. Musky, mild and flowery. More reasons to like this products:
- Free from coloring agents
- pH Balanced
- Tear-free (for Baby Wash 2-in1 and Baby Shampoo)
- Mild and Gentle
