Bath time for little ones to me is a combination of fun and relaxation, the ideal time to calm children time for bed! My youngest son has sensitive skin so we try to opt for organic bathing products as they seem kinder on his skin. Babydino kindly sent us a luxury baby bathing pack from the Maclaren Beginning range – the beginning bath set, which we’ve tried out with both boys (as baby isn’t due until August!). Maclaren Beginning products do not use synthetic perfumes, artificial colours, parabens or animal ingredients, and are certified Organic by the soil association. The products are Dermatologically tested on sensitive skin.
The pack arrives in a handy wash bag, ideal for storing all the bathing bits in and a perfect wash bag to grab to take on travels!
The boys loved the bath and shower wash, it smelt quite sweet but with the freshness of citrus fruit – think of orange blossom! We did attempt to use it as a bubble bath but the bubbles disappear quickly! The wash worked really well to clean the boys skin, without drying their skin out!
The body cream has a fairly subtle lavender scent, which I adore! The boys loved the cream as they said it smelt nice, and it certainly helped to deal with rough patches on Boo’s knees! It’s thick enough that it’s easy to dispense the correct amount, but also absorbs into skin very easily!
Hair washing with E is a battle, he hates having his hair washed so this was an interesting product to trial with him! Boo washed his own hair (with some help!) and said he liked the fact the the shampoo didn’t foam too much and was easy to rinse out. E finally let us shampoo his hair, and was pleased it washed out quickly! The conditioner smelt fabulous and left both boys with very shiny hair which seemed a little easier to comb than normal! I have to confess I had recently started using adult conditioner on the boys hair but I won’t be using it again in a hurry – I shall be sticking with the Maclaren Beginning Conditioner as everyone has commented on how healthy their hair is looking!
The boys and I are very impressed with Maclaren Beginnings, the products have helped make bathtime more relaxing and we’ll definitely be using them with baby when baby arrives in August! Huge thanks to @BabydinoUK (follow them on twitter and say hi!) for sending us the Maclaren Beginnings bath set to review!
