At a glance:

Childs Farm shampoo, conditioner and body wash in 3-in-1 has a delicious strawberry and organic mint aroma. Perfect post-swim, it washes away chlorine leaving skin and hair clean and shiny. It’s the perfect hassle-free hair-to-toe after swim care solution! It is suitable for newborns and upwards, dermatologist and paediatrician approved as suitable for sensitive skin and also safe for those who are prone to eczema.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Louise: Yes, I would. The product is fun and child appropriate. The lid is great as my toddler cannot open it but I can do it one-handed. We took this bottle on holiday and there were no leaks so it has been nicely designed. The soap itself is very silky and my baby loves being washed with it. Their skin is lovely and soft afterwards. The chlorine smell was despatched and although it smells nice it is not overpowering in scent. The toddler's hair was soft and clean afterwards.

Holly:  The smell is beautiful and my son smells amazing after his swimming lesson every week. He suffers from eczema and this doesn't affect him at all! I haven't used it on my other children yet but my three-year-old loves it and I will definitely buy it again.

Nicola: I would definitely recommend the 3-in-1 swim hair and body wash to all mums - especially babies or children who suffer from dry or sensitive skin. The scent of this is lovely and definitely not too strong and it hasn't irritated my babies skin. The 250ml bottle is good as it will last a long time. Only a little dollop is needed to clean the whole body and hair. I love the quirky designs used on the packaging, they stand out from other brands on supermarket shelves.

How did this product make your life easier?

Holly: My little one loves swimming and we have been taking her since she was a few weeks old. One thing I do worry about especially when my daughter was so young is the chlorine drying her skin out. The 3-in-1 swim is great. It's so easy to use and as it includes a shampoo I can wash the chlorine completely off my baby before we have even got home.

Kirsty: The product is useful as it ensures your little one's hair and skin is thoroughly cleaned and cared for after swimming by removing all chlorine. The added bonus that it can also be used as a body wash means that I only have to take one product to swimming. Using one product also saves time. This product has naturally derived ingredients and essential oils that are safety tested and suitable for children. My little one hates having his hair washed so being able to do it all at once is very helpful.

Faye: This product makes my life as a mum easier because it’s three products in one. It saves time and space in her swim bag! The product gets the chlorine off my little girl. This is really important as chlorine gives her a bit of a rash so I need to get it off her skin as soon as possible. Once I washed her with this, the rash disappeared quickly, much faster than when I just used plain water.

Would you choose this product to win?

Emma: Yes. I love the fact it’s child-friendly and can be used all over their bodies. The fact it is suitable from newborn just shows how gentle the formula is. After using this product on my children who swim on a weekly basis it completely gets rid of the horrible chlorine smell. The price is reasonably affordable which makes this product more appealing.

Christina: The natural ingredients make this product stand out. The fact it is suitable for sensitive and eczema prone skin is amazing. It is paediatrician and dermatologist approved which gives parents confidence that it is safe for newborns upwards.

Niqui: Yes I would, despite it being more expensive than others on the market. It smells amazing and this alone would make me buy it. I love the packaging. It is bright, colourful and stands out on the shelf. Children like it too. It makes swimming easier and means I don't need to worry about the chlorine affecting my baby's skin. It feels like a real treat. I really think it should win for those reasons.

What changes would you make to this product?

Rachel: This product does tick a lot of boxes. I would change the lid to a pump action lid so it is easier to use one-handed. In terms of the scent, I much prefer clean smells and I am not a fan of fruit-scented bath products.

Louise: Overall, I love this product. The price of £4 is slightly high for a wash but you only need to use a tiny blob to wash each child as it spreads really well. I think it will last a long time. Perhaps £3 to £3.50 would feel less steep.

Holly: I think maybe a push top would be great. I love the current design but as the bottle goes down it goes quite out of shape and more difficult to get the product out. If it was available in bigger sizes I would buy them.
