Lara is absolutely LOVING her swimming lessons at present; I'm sure it is something to do with the stage of development she is at and the realisation that she is control of her strength and power. After swimming, Lara and I ALWAYS fall out about a shower. Week in, week out. I don't know why it has to be such a stressful thing but it almost always ends in tears. Thankfully, my new buddy is this bottle of Childs Farm Quick Dip! 3 in 1 Swim which at least helps me make the process short and sweet.
Childs Farm Quick Dip! 3 in 1 Swim offers head to toe cleansing for kids - it is a shampoo, conditioner and body wash all in one and the best thing is that it is made with 98% natural ingredients. One of the reasons why I always insist that Lara showers after swimming is because she suffers from dry skin and ezcema so not only is it important to wash away all the cholorine but it is also important to me that her post-swim routine is as natural and gentle as possible. Childs Farm toiletries for kids are free from parabens, SLS, mineral oils and artificial colours.
The 3 in 1 Swim has a very sweet scent of strawberries and mint... I found myself standing at the side of the swimming pool this week watching Lara swim while unconsciously sniffing her bottle of Childs Farm shampoo and body wash!!! I have struggled a bit with the lid on the bottle which seems a bit wonky and so far has leaked inside two of my sports bags but I hope this is a one-off because the lid on our Childs Farm bubble bath seems fine.
After swimming, Lara's long hair does need a bit of attention when it comes to knots and tangles so to avoid another argument in the shower we normally use a spray-in conditioner on her wet hair. The Childs Farm detangling spray is quite a thick spray for help with removal of knots and we get some particularly evil knots after swimming. I'm really pleased with this detangler; it is very effective compared to other sprays that we've tried and yet it is also 98% natural. I absolutely love the smell (again, another difference compared to big brand named detangler sprays!), this one is scented with grapefruit oil and tea-tree oil which also has the added benefit of deterring head lice!
Childs Farm is a cartoon on Cartoonito which features Radar the dog and his farmyard friends. All of the labels on the Childs Farm toiletries products feature images from the cartoons and they all have a strong farmyard theme. The range features bubble baths, body washes, hand washes and body lotion as well as detangling combs, hair ties and gift bags. I think its a fun range with a really wide appeal to children from birth right upto pre-teens.
