I said yes as I was so interested in seeing what Maclaren had to offer in terms of beauty products. To see if they had spread their wings to far.
The set included a sampler of 6 products
- Connecting Massage Oil
- Alleviating Leg Lotion
- Nuturing Bath Milk
- Supporting Belly Balm
- Balancing Facial Mist
- Purifying Bath & Shower Elixir
First thing I noticed was the simplicity of the packaging, I was pleased with this, the only thing that I would change is the fact that although it does come in a lovely box, I would have liked it to come in a little bag so that you could take them with you.
All the items smell delicious, not harsh at all, they are made from natural holistic aromatherapy oils and that is apparent, beautiful hints of Orange Blossom, Lavender and more. I love the fact the Elixir and Leg Lotion come with pumps, unusual for small samples. The massage oil does not feel greasy to touch and soaks in to the skin.
As a sufferer of Eczema and having reactions to many products I was a little worried how these would be on my skin, I need not be, I think as they are all natural ingredients they had no reaction to my eczema, in fact the massage oil helped my dried spots.
The best product for me in the set was the facial mist, the BML event was very hot, I would sneak this out of my bag every hour or so and freshen my face, it was amazing, it cooled me right down but not upsetting my make up at all. It is a shame though as I think they do not sell it individually.
All in all the set is lovely, I think for £25 as I said above I wish it came presented better but I think this really would be a perfect gift for a new Mum, I would have been over the moon to receive it, especially the Belly Balm in those itchy belly days.
I am also excited to be introduced to Baby Dino site, it is excellent, they sell everything you need for babies and preparing for a child, I especially love the large Pushchair section, which isn’t surprising.
Go take a look at Baby Dino and all the Maclaren products I am sure you didn’t know they even did.
