Surcare Sensitive Skin laundry product‏

Surcare – with nothing in to irritate skin

Skin can be a sensitive thing and sometimes it needs a little TLC. Some laundry and
cleaning products are filled with all sorts of chemicals that might rub your skin up the
wrong way, or just don’t do the business when it comes to getting those clothes clean.
Championing sensitive skin, Surcare promises not to put anything unnecessary into its products that will irritate your skin. No enzymes, no dyes, no acids. Not even perfumes. Even if it’s the nicest smelling scent in the world. Because in Surcare’s view, nothing smells as good as the ‘just-off-the-line’ smell of fresh air.
All Surcare products have been dermatologically tested and approved, so they can stop all those stains in their tracks without compromising on your skin. What’s more, they provide outstanding cleaning at 30°C, so you can be kinder to the environment too.
New for 2013, Surcare has launched Super concentrated Gel Wash. The new gel format makes washing even easier with a lid you can pop straight into the washing machine. Just pour and go!
Having a daughter who's 2 years old and suffers with eczema can be emotional at times because when ever Davina comes in to contact with any high perfumed products her eczema flares up really bad, it can be come very sore and irritating for her making her unable to sleep at night or even crying. Davina has suffered with eczema since she was 1 month old and gets it on her legs and arms mostly so washing her clothes in a non perfumed detergent is really important as she can scratch until she bleeds leaving her in tears. When I was asked if I would like to try one of Surcares new laundry detergent wash gels I just had to say yes as I just haven't found one that will suit the whole family. I have been using Surcare for a few weeks now on  just Davina's clothes and over all it is a great laundry detergent for people who suffer with eczema like Davina it didn't irritate her skin like some of the high perfumed detergents have, it washes great leaving you clothes clean even on a 30 wash you just pop the lid of and fill it up and then pop the lid into the drum on top of your washing and away you go.

We give Surcare 4/5

Surcare Superconcentrated Gel Wash 630ml, RRP £3.99

  • Badge It! badge making machine
  • 15 Badge Tops
  • 15 Badge Bottoms
  • 15 transparent seals
  • Template
  • Badge Design Sheet.
  • 15 safety pins
  • Instructions

I have to admit I have always wanted a badge it since I was a little girl so when was offered to try one I just couldn't say no. My two older children Callum and Michaela just couldn't wait to get started, they both took in turns watching each other patiently.
 First of all we took all the contents out of the box and layed them out on the table I did have to read the instructions out to them both as they were a little difficult for them to understand and the pictures weren't very clear.

So first they had to choose their design from the design sheet. There are 15 designs on the sheet and you just have to cut around the one you want to use to make your badge.

 Next they had  to pull out draw 1 whilst holding the handle of the machine. They then put the badge top into the slot and place  their design on top and then a transparent seal on top of those. They then had to push the draw in and hold the handle while turning the dial clockwise until it reaches position 1 and clicks, its a loud click so you won’t miss it. Once they heard the click they then turn the dial counter clockwise until they reached the starting position.
Next they pulled out draw 2 and place the badge bottom in the slot then push the draw back in again,  they then held the handle and turned the dial clockwise until it reached position 2 and clicked once it clicks they turned the dial counter clockwise so they were back to the starting position. Once they removed their badge from the maker they had to then push the pin into it which was really simple and safe to do.

My daughter Michaela aged 6 was so amazed to find all those pieces made a wonderful badge and she was so proud of her self, she just had to make another one.
They had so much fun making their own badges and have used up all the contents but not to worry you can purchase a refill pack for just £8.99 and the Badge it Maker can be purchased for £19.99 which comes with 15 designs.

Badge it is really fun and has so many cool designs or you can design your own by cutting a picture using the purple template provide, my two children and I love badge it they both found it very easy to use once the instructions were read to them.
We give Badge it 4/5 as the instructions could be made a little more clear for children to understand too.
