Talcum powder is really my go to after a shower or a bath. Call me crazy but it relaxes me and makes me feel clean and soft. However, recently I have learned that talcum powder by a popular baby brand may actually be doing more harm than good after reading rather frightening articles online. Disheartended by this I stopped using it and scoured for natural NON TALC alternatives. There isn't really that much out there sadly, the few I tried were either gritty or yellowy substances which left me feeling oily.

 SENSPA has made a non talc with cornflower, it has the consistency of talc but without any of the nasty chemicals. I especially love how SENSPA  list all the ingredients so you actually know what you are putting on your skin and the majority are all natural. This is incredibly important to me as our skin is the largest organ in our body so I am incredibly aware of what goes on it! Also in a world being taken over by synthetic smells I appreciate good natural smelling essential oils.

The consistency of this power is exactly like the normal baby talcum except the scent is divine- a mix of rose and lavender. When rubbed in it completely disappears and is absorbed. The scent lasts for a few hours too. I popped this on after I had showered when leaving the gym to meet my friend for a coffee and she complimented my scent! I had no perfume on just this stuff! I am very impressed and I can breathe a sigh of relief as its 97% natural! For new Mum's I would recommended checking this out if you are looking for an alternative! 

Its £4.50 from waitrose and on offer at the moment 3 for 2!

Have any of you tried this? What do you think?
