Do your kids steal your skincare??

Now I know I haven’t harped on about it enough recently (!) but as some of you might know I won an award at the mum and working awards last month (working parent blogger of the year!!)

One of the categories, won by none other than Caprice herself was sponsored by the absolutely lovely Marili who has her own children’s skincare and bath time range so I was super happy to be asked to have a little try of these bad boys!

In my lovely delivery I had these wonderful body washes and a face wash.

How cute are they?! I was in love as soon as I opened the parcel! I think the packaging is lovely to look at but not only is it visually appealing to mummies and children alike but it is quality packaging. Now that may sound snobby but how many children’s ranges have really nice pump action bottles??

The smells are amazing. My youngest one desperately wanted to eat the caramel and honey (which could be a little bit of an issue 🙂 ) and the strawberry and honey is equally as yummy. Def my favourite! It leaves their skin feeling soft and them smelling good enough to eat !

Additionally there is a face wash, which to be honest I may have to steal myself as my kids aren’t too big on that and usually only let me get them with a wet flannel if i’m lucky but also some beautiful smelling and looking lip balms. image

Now you may think lip balms?! For kids?! But both my boy and girl loooove stealing mine! So it is fantastic that they can have their own. Yes, you do have the issues of them squishing their fingers right through the middle when they first get them but it’s doesn’t take long for them to be taught to be gentle and I must say I just loved (even more than normal) giving them a kiss when they had it on!

Additionally they are all paraben free and organic! – Win win in my book!

Crazy Kids!

So as I mentioned in my half term post, Zachy and I went to London to meet with the lovely peeps from Kids Stuff Crazy and had a lovely time at Hamleys.

We were super lucky to receive a lovely box of goodies through the post in an already favoured pirate box to test out.

package

Included in our kit was:

  • Body Paint – Blue & Red (RRP £2.50)
  • Colour changing bubble bath. (RRP £2.50) One changes in the bath and one when you shake it in the bottle to teach children what two colours make another.
  • Sparkling bubble bath (RRP £2.50)
  • Foaming green soap (RRP £2.00)
  • Colouring book & crayons for bath time (RRP £5.00)

The company also makes nice gift sets of crayons and a mirror, soap and animal sponges and fizzy bath tints. You can see their full range on their website and many Tescos, Sainsbury’s, Boots and more are stocking them.

My advice?

I could fill you full of facts and figures about how many kids like bath time, how much time we spend doing it etc but I don’t feel like this post needs many words because as you can see from the pictures it all went down a treat with Z. He was particularly amazed that the bubble bath changed colour as it went in the water and looooooooooved the foaming soap.

My own personal reservations are that the foamy soap doesnt last long (but then again if you were strickter than me it would!), the body paint doesn’t lather overly well really but overall at least their having fun and getting clean and lets be honest if he’s happy I’m happy! (although I cant say the same for my bath at the end of it all!)

Would I buy it?

Yes, I think its a great novelty item, perfect for xmas stocking fillers and for fun gifts for birthdays.
