We spoke to these real mum testers to get their review...

How did this product make your life easier?

Rachel Grindrod says: "I am always nervous trying new products in case they affect my children’s skin however the knowledge of the natural ingredients and essentials oils made is easier for me to give the new products a trial. Due to the amazing smells and the animated packaging my toddler was also keen to try them. One of the battles of motherhood is to encourage trying new things but I didn’t have an issue with these products. No more arguments on hair wash night! We particularly liked the design of the Sensitive Scalp Shampoo and 3 in 1 Swim with the animated horse!"

Mehreen Khan says: "Makes my life very easy. Very easy to use. Whole range of products from shampoos to moisturisers. Good for all ages. Baby loves the product and tolerates it perfectly on his skin. Although he doesnt have particularly sensitive skin the fact is product is for sensitive skin does help the consumer in general."

Emily Leadbeater says: "The range of products caters for a lot of conditions and child ages. The very sweet smell does not suit me and my tastes but my older son loves them and doesn’t mind being washed with it! The baby skin moisturiser is excellent and has been used to great effect on my baby who had dry skin when he was very little."

Would you recommend this product to other parents?

Kelsie Storer says: "I would recommend to friends and fellow mums. With a daughter with sensitive skin especially when newborn, the fragrance free range was great for her. Now she’s older, we love the natural fruity fragrances. After a bath she’s good enough to eat. And it’s kind on her skin and easily gets rid of all the dirt from the days adventures."

Nicola Stratford says: "I love the design of the products with bright colours and appealing designs both for children and parents. The range smelt lovely and I was actually pleasantly surprised that they did not trigger my sons eczema which actually appeared to improve after use of their baby was and moisturiser. I liked that I could choose multiple products from the same range for multiple skincare needs. Using the shampoo, bath wash and moisturiser daily. Then items such as the sunscreen which was not sticky and again smelt nice and absorbed well."

Lindsey Stuart says: "I absolutely love the design on the packaging, my little girl loves the horse design and seeing all the children's faces on the packaging brings her joy, I really like how the product information is well described and easy to understand. The products are very secure when closed which I was impressed with (no leakage) Very colourful funky and eye catching."

Would you choose this product above all others on the market?

Kayleigh Suckling says: "Yes definitely. I think for the price the product is the best in the market. A little goes a long way with these products so they last a long time. I also think the spray on baby oil and roll on sunscreen make application so easy and they are easily absorbed! I love the smell of the products too and would happily use them on myself!"

Nikki Swinburn says: "The fact that these products are made in the UK to help support the economy is fantastic. They haven't just said that the product is vegan and not tested on animals. These products have to adhere to the vegan society and bunny stickers regulations, make it extra appealing. The products smell amazing and with a vast range there is something for everyone. The products are easy to use, the spa roll sunscreen is a fantastic feature. Best sunscreen I have had for babies and kids. The detailing spray with its grapefruit smell, leaves your hair feeling and smelling amazing. The product also lasts longer than you would expect being in smaller bottles but it really does last a long time. You can tell that great quality and thought has gone into the design of each product."

Rachel Grindrod says: "Childs Farm products would now be my first choice due to the planet friendly ingredients, recyclable packaging, amazing smelling products and happy content children using them. They smell and feel so good mum and dad often use them too! It is also of important peace of mind that paediatricians have approved the products. Childs Farm offers all the products I require; sun care, hair care and skin care so I will now be able to buy one brand for all products required for my baby and toddler."

What changes would you make to this product?

Mehreen Khan says: "The main thing I would change is the price. It is slightly more expensive particularly the shampoos and body wash compared to its competitors such as Dove. The packaging could also stand out a bit more if possible so that it catches your eye straight away when out and about shopping. Overall though it is an excellent product."

Emily Leadbeater says: "To be honest, I think the child’s range products fill a niche which will suit a lot of families. I think I would prefer slightly different fragrances and I would have the sun screen lasting longer than 2 hours. I prefer a pump dispenser for my bath products and sun screen for ease of use. I was impressed with the quality of all the products overall."

Kelsie Storer says: "The nappy cream isn’t very thick and didn’t help protect against a nappy rash after a bout of teething poops. Also the hair detangler spray is great, more flavours would be amazing."
