Maclaren Beginning baby care product review and giveaway

The company that brought us sturdy, sleek strollers has just launched Beginning, a new line of personal care products for babies.  Quality is the one trait that all Maclaren’s products share and their venture into personal care products for baby is no exception. 

The Protecting Nappy Balm is like nothing you’ve ever used before. Unlike thick and sticky diaper creams, this one goes on like whipped chiffon.  It has a wonderful lavender scent and softens baby’s skin on contact.  Made with natural butters and scented with essential oils, you won’t have to worry about finding parabens or phthalates in this product.  My only complaint with the Protecting Nappy Balm is that the title is far too limiting!  I’ve used it as a baby lotion for after bath time and found that it leaves her skin soft and wonderfully scented.

Would you like to try the Maclaren products for yourself?  I set the Delicate Soothing Baby Soap and  Absorbing Dusting Powder aside so that a lucky reader can try them for herself. Try the following ways of entering and get ready to enjoy these lovely quality products!
