Review: Childs Farm Toiletries

I'd heard lots of good things about Childs Farm, so was really excited when we were asked to review the Little Essentials gift set, RRP£7.99...

Childs Farm Little Essentials Gift Set

The cute little ziplock purse makes this set a great gift, and is also really useful for storing toiletries for travel - there's no way your bag is going to get wet or gooey! I also like that it's completely reusable too. I expect I will end up storing miniature bits and bobs in it.

The set itself consists of four 50 ml bottles of:
 Hair & Body Wash for Dirty Rascals.
 Hair Detangler for Flowing Locks.
 Moisturiser for Silky Skin.
 3-in-1 Swim.

Marianna, being a dirty rascal, was soon ready to try it all out. The orange scent is quite subtle, but still lovely and fresh, and it did the job it was made to do. I love that Childs Farm products are dermatologist approved for both sensitive and ezema prone skin - you can use them from newborn upwards, which is brill if you're travelling with little terrors of varying ages. It's a no sting formula too, just to make life that little bit easier.

Marianna's bath time

As you can see, Marianna's locks aren't exactly flowing, but we did try a little spray of the detangler. Again, it smells so fresh - grapefruit this time! - and I think it may well end up on my section of the bathroom windowsill...

Next up was the moisturiser. This one is grapefruit scented too and goes on really smoothly. Marianna has pretty good skin anyway (touch wood!) but it felt even lovelier and softer after a few uses. We haven't tried the 3-in-1 Swim yet, but we were advised to take Marianna swimming at her physiotherapist appointment this week, so its time is not too far away!

I'm really impressed with the Childs Farm products, and they get a big thumbs up from me! To check them out for yourself visit childsfarm.com - there is even free shipping on orders over £15. You can also connect with Childs Farm via social media at:

  2. I haven't heard of this brand before either. It looks great and I would give it a try as an alternative to our usual sensitive skin lotions and gels. #PicknMix

  18. Ahh such cute photos! How on earth do they make baby/children products so scrumptious? I suppose all that baby hair is so soft and gorgeous any way that it doesn't take much to notch it up to the next level. Love the idea of the orange scent.

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou

Guide to Sindy Houses

As far as 1/6 scale doll houses go, Sindy's Super Home is fairly ubiquitous. It's a good size, it isn't made out of pink plastic, and you can pick one up on eBay for under £50. But the Super Home wasn't Sindy's only foray into property ownership. In fact she had numerous different houses, caravans, stables, and other buildings... 1970 Sindy's Town House Though this was advertised in the 1970 brochure, it doesn't seem to have ever made it into production. 1973 Sindy's House This one apparently made it into limited production, but was flimsy and was soon replaced. According to the Sindy Museum , it had four rooms, decorated as a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and lounge. You can see part of the house used for photos in the 1974 catalogue . 1974 Sindy's House Existing examples appear to have been competition wins, so it is unlikely this house was ever on general sale.
