moo goo skin care products

For the last two months I have been testing out a few great products from the Australian family owned and operated company ‘Moo Goo’.

These guys have a huge collection of products ranging from hair care, aluminium-free deodorant, (my first introduction to the Moo Goo brand and now a bathroom staple) sunscreen, (my friends swear by this one) a complete baby range and of course creams for all sorts of skin conditions.

I tried to convince myself that I didn’t need a decent (usually meaning expensive) nappy bag so I tried to make do with the bags I already had. I thought I could avoid buying a purposely designed baby bag; because all handbags are created equal right?

Turns out not.

My pre-children handbag was the first to be recruited back to the dressing room dust bag; a deliciously butter-soft leather Ralph Lauren tan shoulder bag. Such a gorgeous bag, yet totally incapable of fitting the amount of associated baggage that comes with the birth of your tiny little newborn bundle.
