Childs Farm Top-to-Toe Kit Review

The summer holidays are well and truly here and over the next few weeks many of you will no doubt be jetting off to lovely sunny places for a week of relaxation. This post is one for the mummies among you who have little ones going with you.
Childs Farm is a brand specializing in organic products that are as natural as can be and is the only childrens brand to use argan oil in their products.
The Top-to-Toe Kit (*) is a very sweet little set that contains the signature products from the brand including the shampoo for luscious locks, conditioner for unruly hair and bubble bath for sweet dreams all of which are in lovely bright packaging that kids will love but is also conveniently 100ml's so suitable to take as hand luggage on a plane. The clear zip lock bag also means you can just throw it into a suitcase as it is with no worry about transferring into a different bag!
The bottles have well designed, easy to dispense caps that are easy for both grown up and little hands to open and close and the design means that they won't flip open in a suitcase and make everything else in the luggage all soapy. The only thing that surprised me slightly with the design of the kit is that the bubble bath has the same design which means its not the quickest way to get lots of bubbles quickly!
As you'd expect from Childs Farm, all of the ingredients are soft and gentle on all skin types. The formula is also paraben, SLS and mineral oil free and uses no artificial colouring. One thing that does bug me is that despite all of these great claims, the products cannot be classed as vegetarian due to the addition of glycerin which readers of my blog will know is a real niggle of mine (why would a company not make such a simple change in order to open their product up to so many more people?!) especially with companies who go out of their way to make sure their ingredients are high quality, and in this case, organic. They also support the RDA which is a charity helping disabled children learn how to ride and look after horses.

Despite my little ingredients issue, this is a really sweet kit that smells beautifully of fresh fruity goodness. Retailing at just £9.35 on the Childs Farm website it also makes a lovely gift for childrens parties, or if you have a niece or nephew with a birthday coming up over the summer or going on their first holiday. Lots of prospects :)

  1. I really love the Childs Farm range. As does Stacey, my daughter. We've tried all 3 of the products that you've got here, and next up she wants to try out the body wash!
