Childs Farm Review | Bath, Hair & Body Care Products for Children
My daughters have quite sensitive skin and I have to be careful with the products that we use for them in the bath and the moisturisers that we apply afterwards. A brand that I’m sure you’ve heard of before is Childs Farm. This multi award-winning British skincare brand uses only the best, naturally derived ingredients combined with essential oils for gorgeous scents. The formulas are mild, kind and safe for babies and children, even the ones with sensitive skin.
I have used some of the different bubble baths and hair & body washes from Childs Farm before and it’s one of few brands that work well with my 3-year-old’s skin at the moment.
The one we’re using now is the Blackberry & Organic Apple hair & body wash which smells amazing and is really nice to use in the bath, as a body wash and as a shampoo. The product is suitable for sensitive and eczema prone skin which is great as my girls are prone to dry patches.
The wash cleanses skin and hair well and leaves skin moisturised and smooth. It works beautifully on my girls’ hair as well which can sometimes be a bit difficult to wash as both of them have long hair that tangles easily. My eldest has corkscrew curls and my youngest poker straight hair but they both get knots all the time!
That brings us to the next product and the reason why I wanted to try it — the award-winning hair detangler spray! This is a handy spray bottle full of detangler that smells beautiful of grapefruit essential oil and helps make brushing out tangles easier. It’s also got organic tea tree essential oil in it which helps deter head lice. I love this aspect now that my eldest attends pre-school!
You can use this spray from newborn age and onwards — my youngest was born with long hair so some newborns do need it. I find the spray nice to use on dry hair but it’s not enough to use it on its own on wet hair after shampooing. On my girls, I need to use conditioner too otherwise it’s too difficult to brush through with the Tangle Teezer even with this spray. It works great on dry hair though which is useful as the girls always end up with tangles between hair washes too.
We also have a new moisturiser that we’re testing. My eldest is the one with the most skin problems and she has eczema on the classic areas — back of knees, folds of arms and wrists. We have tried lots of creams and lotions on her and there’s only one that works which is a very expensive French pharmacy one, unfortunately! Nothing else works on those patches.
My youngest is a bit easier to find moisturisers for and she hasn’t got any specific areas that always need extra care but just a general need for some body cream after her bath. The Childs Farm moisturiser with grapefruit and organic tea tree oil is lovely to use all over her body and helps keep her skin feeling soft and hydrated. I quite like it on myself too! It’s suitable from birth and onwards and is dermatologist approved for sensitive and eczema-prone skin too.
Childs Farm also make miniatures of most of their products and also little travel kits. These are great for holidays, weekends away, swimming and other sport activities where you shower away from home and for when you just want to try a smaller sample before committing to the big bottles.
You can find all products and more information about them on the Childs Farm website. You can also buy the products in Boots, Superdrug, Asda, Tesco, Morrisons, Holland & Barret, Waitrose, Ocado, Booths and Lloyds Pharmacy.
We were also asked to create characters out of the Childs Farm bottles and my eldest and I made this rainbow monster together:
