E45 Junior Range Review

The E45 Junior Range Review

E45 has used over 50 years dermatological expertise to develop the new E45 Junior range. As most of us parents who have children with eczema and itchy or sensitive skin can some sometime turn in to an unhappy experience for all the family, therefore each product in the range is formulated to be extremely gentle on your children's dry sensitive and itchy skin, but best of all its now designed with fun in mind.

E45 Junior goes further by raising £100,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity. Over the next 18 months, starting on 1st June 2011 10 pence will be donated to the charity from every pack sold . Great Ormond Street Hospital offers treatments for children with severe skin disorders, including eczema and dermatitis.

E45 Junior Range consists of :

E45 Junior Foaming Bath Milk (£4.85 for 500ml)

The two layers of E45 Junior Foaming bath milk combine the fun of soft and creamy caring bubbles with a soothing milky formula ( containing coconut oil) to cleanse and moisturise your child's delicate skin.

E45 Junior Moisturising Lotion (£3.85) for 200ml)

A gentle formulation to soothe, soften and nourish dry and sensitive skin. Use daily all over the body to help protect the skin against moisture loss leaving your skin child's skin felling soft and moisturised. This hydrating lotion is perfect for use after bathing with E45 Junior Foaming Bath Milk to lock in moisture.

E45 Junior Hand and Body Wash (£3.45 for 200ml)

This clear cleansing wash contains brightly coloured bubble beads containing a rich mineral oil to gently cleanse the skin without drying it. For use in the bath, shower or as a gentle hand wash to keep by the sink.

All products in the E45 Junior range are perfume and soap free and are available from supermarkets and pharmacies nationwide. They can be found in the baby isles.

My daughter Davina has had eczema from about 5months old  so bath times haven't been very pleasant, I wasn't able to bath Davina in any perfumed products, only ones which were recommended by her GP which left her skin feeling too greasy and they had no bubbles so there was no fun time for Davina while in the bath. I tryed E45 bath milk which i found was great  there was no itching and scratching from Davina which was good to see as she would scratch so much i would have to quickly wash her then remove her from the bath.
Now we are using E45 bath milk Davina can have fun for longer and she loves the bubble I'm so happy to see her smiling and enjoying bath time
I think E45 is great its non greasy and non messy lots of bubbles and lots of fun.

Bubbles of Fun even for Itchy, Sensitive Skin !

E45 Junior Range can also be found on there website at

Tesco Skin Wisdom Skin Essentials Review

Skin Wisdom 

I was kindly asked by Tesco to review there Skin Wisdom Range, I was sent Gentle cleansing milk, Refreshing Toner and Light 24hour Moisturiser. Here is some information on each item and what I thought.

Gentle Cleansing Milk 

The skin wisdom Essential range works in harmony with your skin to take care of its every day cleansing and moisturising needs leaving skin feeling healthy and refreshed, It has a  creamy conditioning cleanser formulated to be gentle on the skin and affective at removing everyday dirt and make up.Containing soothing chamomile and yucca which acts as a natural cleanser. 

Refreshing Toner

After cleansing and toning gently massage into face and neck leaving your skin feeling soft ,fresh and intensely hydrated all day long.

What I thought :

I tried  all three Tesco Skin Wisdom products as directed on the bottles and found they left my skin feeling great, I have delicate skin so i cant use many creams on my face as i either break out in a rash or spots, I tried a tiny bit of each product on a small patch of skin on my face first hoping i wouldn't wake up the next morning to have a  red patch. Luckily i woke up and my skin was fine :) , I decided to start using the Gentle Cleansing milk followed by the Refreshing Toner and then the Moisturiser every morning and and every evening before bed. I found my skin felt  much smoother and less greasy than it normally would. I will continue to purchase Tesco Skin Wisdom products as my skin is now looking and feeling great.

         I give Skin Wisdom Essentials a 5/5 

All these products can be found at your local Tesco stores or on-line on there website at

Clintons Boofle xxx Collection Review

         Boofle Note book & Pen and bottle Review 
From ClintonCards

My daughter Michaela was so happy when she was told she would be trying some of the Boofle bears collection from Clinton Cards. Micheala was sent "My lovely little drinks bottle" ! , My lovely pens set & My little book of important notes. Below are the reviews we did.

My little book of important notes & My lovely pen set !

First Micheala tried Boofles note book Micheala loves to write and draw so these were great for her she would sit there for an hour on end writing in her little note book.
Michaeala would come and sit next to me on the sofa while I wrote out my shopping lists, she would ask me what we would need from the shops so she could write out her own shopping list too (How sweets is that).
Boofle's note book has a lovely hard back cover with a cute picture of Boofle bear there is also a shiny little cute charm that dangles down the spine of the note book which Micheala loves.
On the in side of the note book there is a picture of Boofle bear at the bottom right hand corner of each page which i find adds a little detail to the pages.
The paper is excellent quality so it does not tear easy.
This Boofle note book is great for taking to school to write down all those important class room facts in class.
I use my note books to write down my shopping list and all those important things I don't want to forget.
Next Michaela tried her lovely pen set which contained a pen & pencil both decorated with Boofle bear design. The pen also has a Boofle bear shiny pen charm that hangs of it.
Micheala has loved trying her new pen set and has been using them to practise her name which she has been learning at school.

My lovely little drinks bottle !

Michaela was also given a Boofle drinks bottle to try which she absolutely loves she takes it everywhere with her. I think this drinks bottle is great as I fill it up with squash before we go out and it saves me money so I dont have to spend money buying bottles of pop when we are out.
This drinks bottle has a handy strap so it can be carried around, It also has a straw that has a slide open cover so your straw is kept germ free when carried around indoors or outdoors. This bottle does not leak and is easy to clean.
We give these 3 products get a whole 5 STAR from our family

All products are available in Clinton stores or online at

WOW Toys Review !

WOW Toys 
Pippa's Princess Carriage 

A few weeks ago I asked WOW Toys if i could review one of the fabulous toys, we was so happy when we received  an email says yes we would be able to review a toy. We was so excited when waiting for the toy to arrive as we wasn't told which toy we would be testing so it was a surprise for my children when the toy was delivered. We received Pippa's Princess Carriage which both my girls fell in love with , they couldn't wait for me to get it out of the box.
My daughters Michaela 5 & Davina 11 months took in turns playing with Pippa's Carriage it was nice to see them both playing together even though Davina would crawl of with the pieces (hehe).
WOW Toys come in a lovely colourful packaging which i found very eye catching. 
Stated on the box was lots of information about child development which your child develops when playing with WOW Toys.. For example
Aged 1+  Your child will be learning Sensory stimulation & fine motor skills 
Gross motor skills & eye co-ordination.
2+ Discovery & Learning 
2 an half + Social Interaction 
3+ Role-Play & Exploration 
I think its great news to learn that my children are learning when playing with there toys.

My girls love playing with Pippa's Carriage they've played hourly. When i finally got chance to take a look at the toy i found it was very well made and robust so it is really safe for my little girl who is 11months at the moment the box states this toy is for ages 1-5 year i was so amazed to see my daughter Davina trying to put the Pippa figure in the carriage and pushing it around the floor.


Pippa's Carriage has special functions which do not require batteries so your child can have so much fun and you will never have to worry about having to change the batteries. 
Pippa's Carriage has realistic clippety-clop sounds and a lid which reveals Pippas dressing room which has a magic mirror that changes when you stand Pippa in front and turn her and the picture changes.

As a parent i would definitely recommend WOW Toys to any parent
WOW Toys are fun and colourful and worth every penny
They get 5 stars from our family

Check out there website where they have more fun & exciting toys !
