Miss 10 months started teething at 3 months and sadly the poor little monkey didn’t have a toothy peg until she was 9 months when she got not 1 but 4 at once! Witching hour at times was my most dreaded time as she would often cry until bed time because she was cranky with sore gums it just broke my heart. When the team at Brauer asked me to review a selection of their products I jumped at the chance and begged them to send them all ASAP!
The lovely Brauer team sent me a large parcel of goodies to try and I was pleasantly surprised at their vast range of products. I’d seen their products many times in the chemist and had already heard so many wonderful things about their natural medicines and couldn’t wait to try them out for myself.
For those of you that don’t know Brauer specialise in natural medicine, homeopathic products for your families wellbeing. Brauer uses a formula of carefully selected active ingredients traditionally thought to stimulate the body’s healing abilities, helping to bring it back into balance – naturally. Established since 1929, they have a wide range of products for everyone at affordable prices and they cater for people with eczema and sensitive skin which I must say I love!
These were my favourite products from their range:
CALM : As the name states this liquid is for those moments when you need a bit of calm. I’ve been a sufferer of anxiety for years, working to print deadlines and running a team with huge budgets at times has left me unable to catch my breath and anxiety leaves me in a state of stress for hours at a time so I was extreamly interested to see if this would help me …. And it did!
One Friday everything that could of gone wrong did and by the time I got home I was so anxious I could barely keep a straight thought in my head I reached for some Panadol and saw the bottle of Calm and thought I’d give it a go instead of the Panadol. I measured out 10mls as the back of the bottle stated and within half and hour I actually felt a lot more relaxed just enough for me to catch my breath and move on from my disastrous day. This was a huge winner for me and something I now keep next to the bed for nights my head is too full to sleep.
I rated this a big ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Tinkles
BABY & CHILD TEETHING : The day my Brauer package arrived Miss 10 months was in fine form and I got to try this within seconds of it arriving! Poor little Miss was in lots of pain and she desperately needed some relief. The teething liquid is given in small doses every half hour for 4 doses and then once every 4 hours. Miss 10 months despises medicine she hates the taste and spits it out and she didn’t let me down with her first dose of this liquid she refused to take it. So I did what any mother would do in this situation…. I outwitted the child! Instead of using the syringe I put some yoghurt on a spoon and measured out 0.5ml and gently put it on the spoon with her yoghurt and BAM she loved it! I proceeded to do this with the next 3 doses and I had a very happy girl within in an hour.I love this stuff it’s gold!

SLEEP: This was also a product I put to good use the night of ‘teething gate’ like the other formula you take it in 4 small doses before bed. I was nervous as being bedtime I couldn’t give the yoghurt again to bribe her but this time she took it with no problems and she slept like a baby. This can also be used for children up to age 12 which with flu season almost upon us I will be saving for Master 5 to use also. Another triumph for Brauer and for the Tink House.

BABY NATURALS BUBBLE BATH: Another product I put to use that night was this beautiful eczema friendly bubble bath. Miss 10 months does not have eczema but being strawberry blonde her skin is extreamly sensitive and I’m very careful with the products I use on her baby skin but this I loved! The bubble bath has no nasties, soap free and is free from SLS and parabens. The tutti frutti smell was beautiful and you could feel when I dried her off that the honey, paw paw and almond extract had done their job. The bubbles chilled my little one out and she was very relaxed for bedtime and she absolutely adores the Brauer rubber ducky. I’m a big fan of the pump as it was easy to use without pouring too much in and it’s not tested on animals so it’s a win win all round for me.

PAW PAW LIP SHIMMER: I’m obsessed with these! They are so handy to keep in your handbag, car, pocket or like me all 3! I just could not get enough of these and being made with Paw Paw they are super nourishing.
I tried the Ruby which is a deep red great for a night out its a nice rich colour.
The lip shimmers are free of petrochemicals and are also not tested on animals a big plus in my book.
I rated these ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ all my girlfriends will receive these in their Christmas pressies from me this year they are a ‘must have’ item
ARNICAEZE BUMPS & BRUISES: As the mother of a 5 year old boy I knew it would not be long before I’d be able to test this product out and Master 5 didn’t let me down because 3 days after it arrived he fell off his motorbike thankfully no bones were broken but he did bruise his foot. After his shower I rubbed some of this on his foot and half an hour later my little man yelled out ‘ it works mummy, I’m ready to go out on my bike again’. I’m sure this cream is going to get a good work out especially now Miss 10 months is walking!

PAW PAW NATURAL OINTMENT: I have to confess I love paw paw and believe it has great healing powers so I knew I would love this product. The ointment is great for dry cracked skin and is extreamly moisturising. I used it on the back of my heels, my knees & elbows and on Miss 10 months bum after she had extreme nappy rash from teething. I also used it my cuticles. It’s a huge tub an a little bit goes a long way. Again it’s not tested on animals and is petrochemical free.
I rated this ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I just can’t get enough of this product
I have loved trying the Brauer products and have to say I’m converted. Each of their products were gentle and I felt very content using them on my family as I had the peace of mind they were natural and going to be kind to their bodies. I love them so much I want you to try them too! So one lucky reader is going to get to try each of these products themselves at home!
Good luck x
