We spoke to these real parent testers to get their review...
How did this product make your life easier?
Sarah: This product is a must have post swim! It means only one bottle needs to be packed in the swim bag and making showering little ones post swim much easier. The bottle top is a click up and down which makes it easy to transport and I have not found that it leaks in my bag unlike other brands. We also used it after a beach trip and found it cleaned our boys’ hair and bodies very well and there was no post beach smell! When choosing products in a shop I believe Child’s Farm has simplified the decision for me as it provides a 3 in 1 product which also delivers on quality of pure ingredients as well as peace of mind that it is kind to skin and suitable for sensitive skin.
Gemma: It's comforting to have a product that you know is safe to use, cruelty free, vegan and doesn't use harsh chemicals etc. It's safe from newborns up, too. You can use it for after-swimming showers to wash body and hair, so helps busy mums keep packing light. A little goes a long way too, so although it’s at a higher price point than a lot of competitive products, it does seem to last quite a while - so less buying.
Kimberly: Having a single product that has shampoo, conditioner and body wash means I only have to have one bottle. I don’t have to upset my child by having to rinse their hair more than once as it is washed and conditioned in one go. It makes my children happier when it comes to washing, which makes the process easier.
Would you recommend this product to other parents?
Jessica: Yes, it smells lovely, it’s just one bottle rather than two and it really improved my little one’s hair - it gave a lovely shine and helped her curls be more defined. She was excited to try a new product as well. We didn’t actually use it post swimming but it was great just for everyday use in the shower at home.
Louise: Yes I would recommend Childs Farm 3 in 1. It's hassle free, doesn't leak in the swim bag and a little goes a long way. It smells lovely and given it's dermatologist and paediatrician approved it's suitable for sensitive skin. I have even seen it make a difference to my little one's cradle cap so thumbs up all round!
Gemma: I like the fact you can use this for every purpose – to clean little bodies, as well as shampoo and condition their hair. It makes bath / shower time easier and quicker. It would be great to take swimming or on holiday to reduce the bulk of multiple products. And for those with more than one child (I have two - a 4 and a 1 year old) you can bath them together and not have to worry about one product not being suitable for the other, because Childs Farm is suitable from newborn and upwards.
Would you choose this product above all others on the market?
Kimberly: Child’s Farm is well known amongst parents for having products that are suitable to sensitive skin. A multi-use product that won’t irritate their skin while still washing off the chlorine from the swimming pool is definitely the product I would choose. It smells great, and it is easy to open and close with one hand.
Sarah: The product is good value for money as you only need a small amount to wash both hair and skin. I love the fact it is made in the UK and the ingredients are mostly of natural origin, It definitely saves packing multiple bottles for swimming and I feel that it does any excellent job of cleansing both hair and skin. What stands out about this product is both the combination being of both fun and practical. The brightly coloured bottle and lively fragrance make it fun for young children but it also boasts Mum loving features such as natural, kind to skin ingredients.
Louise: This product is a winner for me. Child friendly, good value and safe for even newborn skin. I love the natural ingredients and the reassurance that it's dermatologist and paediatrician approved. It helps make the post swim clean up less stressful and much more efficient! Plus I think it's great value for money.
What changes would you make to this product?
Jessica: My child suffers from an itchy scalp and unfortunately this product hasn’t improved that. So anything that could soothe an itchy scalp would be a bonus, particularly as chlorine can be very drying and won’t improve the situation. Other than that I don’t have any suggested improvements and am happy as is.
Gemma: It would be great to bring the price down slightly to be more inline with competitors. It feels like a nice-to-have rather than a must-have. Having a squirty pump on the bottle would also be really useful for parents with just one hand free. Bigger bottles that last longer would also work well.
Sarah: I have found it very difficult to answer this question as for me, it really does tick a lot of boxes! The only thing I was unsure about is if it was tear free. The boys did not appear to mind when the foam ran down their faces but I could not see any mention of it being tear free, I feel this would be useful for some children who are particularly anxious about the soap going into their eyes. For us, we did not have a problem with any eye irritation.
