At a glance:

We love this clever 3in1 wash from Childs Farm! Not only does it look beautiful, but our panel of mum testers also loved being able to just carry one bottle in the changing bag and thought the scent was fantastic.

How did this product make your life easier?

Rachel: The product washes my baby's body and hair very thoroughly and you only need to use one product. It's very handy to have in the swim bag and ensure you get thoroughly clean after using a public swimming pool. It smells so lovely that we also use it at home during bath time - the scent is long-lasting.

Bonnie: This product is great. Its the perfect size to fit in our swim bag and smells great on my babies. The product doesn't seem to sting their eyes and seems to make their skin very soft after washing. The smell of chlorine doesn't exist after the babies have had a shower after swimming, which is great for on the go parents.

Lindsay: This is a great 3 in 1 product to use with your children after swimming. Having one product rather than three makes showering after swimming a lot quicker and easier. It is very convenient to pack only one product in our swimming bag. It is also a great product to use at home when bathing the children at night. I love only having one bottle on the side of the bath rather than three.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Christina: Very easy to use from a lovely design of the bottle. My sons love it and my 4-year-old can independently use it too. It's a small portable bottle oozing with a lovely smell from it. It's ideal for taking to swim lessons and leaves my children's hair nice and soft even after a swim in chlorinated water or sea. A worthwhile product to buy. 

Tracy: It foams nicely, and feels nice on the skin. My toddler does not have any issue with sensitive skin, but certainly, the product does not cause any skin reaction in my child during its use. A little of this goes a long way. The baby's skin is nice and soft after. My toddler has very little hair so he doesn't really have any need for a conditioner, but what little of his hair does feel a little smoother and smells lovely after use.

Elizabeth: I would definitely recommend to a friend as one bottle to do hair and body is much easier. The bottle top seems fairly secure so it is less likely to leak than some others. It's really easy to use and lathers up well-meaning you only need a small amount so it should also last well. It completely got rid of the chlorine smell and feel with one use. It left my daughter's hair soft and free from tangles. The added bonus is you know it's free from any harsh chemicals and great for sensitive skin.

Would you choose this product to win?

Lindsay: I love the smell of this product it is really fruity. The product is suitable from newborn onwards which is great when you have children of different ages like me. Newborns have such sensitive skin and it is great to find a product suitable for them too. It is also a vegan product. I think this is a great 3 in 1 product and a worthy winner in this category because of how easy it is to use and how it makes mummy's life easier.

Rachel: I would consider this product a treat rather than an everyday option due to its price point. It would make a lovely gift and is a really nice luxury option but for everyday use, I would select a product from a lower price bracket as I have found them fit for purpose but just with less attractive packaging.

Tracy: I don't think I've seen any similar 3 in 1 type products dedicated specifically for post swimming on the shelves, so it definitely does fill a gap in the market. It makes washing up after swimming very convenient and the best thing about it is that it smells so lovely and fresh, with the mint giving it a little extra kick and washes away the chlorine smell very effectively.

What changes would you make to this product?

Bonnie: If I could then I would make the product a little cheaper for the bottle size. I believe that it is a little on the expensive side. Having said that, I really do love this product and will look out for it in shops especially if they have any special offers. 

Rachel: The product I tested was a fairly large bottle. Given it is specifically advertised for use after swimming, it would be handier to have in smaller, travel-size bottles that are lightweight and more portable. My baby bag is already quite full and heavy so smaller, lighter products would be preferable when on the go.

Elizabeth: The only thing I could think of is perhaps a lid that can be locked shut using a slider or something for when taking in the swimming bag, although we have not found this to be a problem. I do think this one is hard to improve on as it is an all-round great product.
