My Barefoot SOS Story & Review

Barefoot SOS is a British brand developed by natural healthcare experts. Their product range is specifically formulated to bring together the science of skincare with the natural power of botanical extracts.

Their products are free from paraffin, parabens, SLS, as well as artificial colours and fragrances, also they’re suitable for vegans!  They formulate their products to be as gentle as possible, ensuring they are suitable for all ages.

When my son Josiah was 3 months old he had really bad eczema. His skin was red, weepy and itchy. I tried various natural creams and nothing seemed to work.  I didn’t want to try the steroid creams the doctors recommended.   I felt so helpless seeing my baby in distress so I popped into my local health food store and asked for some advice.

The manager recommended Barefoot SOS Face & Body Rescue Cream (part of their Dry & Sensitive range).  I was surprised and said its for a baby but he assured me it would be fine. He gave me a few samples to try at home.  I applied the cream several times a day and after a week his skin dramatically improved. It has a lovely calming aroma, I was so relieved and impressed with the results so I bought a full sized cream. His skin cleared up and was baby soft and smooth.  5 years on and we’re still using it faithfully!


I also used it on Annaliese from birth and it works brilliantly. I always recommend it to friends and family and they’ve all had great results.

I am very particular when it comes to shampoo as most of them leave my hair stripped and feeling like straw. This is a great shampoo as it cleanses my hair while leaving it soft and detangled.  It also soothes and hydrates dry, sensitive or flaky, dandruff scalps.  As with all the other products, I use it on my little ones.  I love the invigorating aroma of lavender, rosemary and geranium.  Great essential oils for hair health.
