Beginning Bath & Beauty Skin Care Products for Baby By Maclaren

By: Ashley

It wasn’t too long ago that I became a HUGE fan of Maclaren. I was in the market for a lightweight, yet durable, stroller and quickly learned that no one (in my very humble opinion) could match Maclaren. That’s why, I was SO excited to learn about Maclaren’s line of skin products! If a company could make such amazing gear that made life easier for both parents and children, I couldn’t wait to see what that same dedication would do for a skin care line. Let me start off by saying, I was NOT disappointed!

“Maclaren makes skin care stuff? Who knew?” That was literally what I said when received the samples of products for this review. Now, a shower, some lotion, and some body balm later, I am fully supporting the Maclaren Beginning line. What makes this stuff so special? Here’s what Maclaren has to say…

(These are) products offering everyday personal care for the entire family (mothers, fathers, babies and children). beginning…everyday, a natural and gentle range of holistic bath and body care products, delivers real therapeutic benefits based on holistic aromatherapypractices, and is made from the purest ingredients safe for sensitive skin.

Now, here’s what I have to say! I’ve kind of gone back and forth about what I think of the potentially dangerous chemicals found in lotions, shampoos, soaps, etc. It’s a tough spot to be in when you want to do everything you can to keep your babies healthy but also need to be cost conscious and… well to be honest, not afraid of everything in the world. That’s one of the reasons I really like the Maclaren Beginnings line. The products are natural… but don’t cost an arm and a leg. A little more than some of the other more traditional baby products, yes… but, for high quality skin care, suitable for sensitive skin, that leaves your body and mind feeling luxuriously relaxed…? Beginning is a GREAT product line.

Product Line Descriptions:

Replenishing Body Lotion: Enriched with the moisturizing and anti-aging benefits of avocado, almond and chamomile oils, this water-based, non-greasy body lotion is specially formulated for delicate and sensitive skin. An organic essential oils blend of relaxing lavender and regenerative avocado oil, combined with moisturizing almond oil, glycerin and cocoa butter, boost the skin’s defenses against the damaging effects of UV rays while softening and soothing the skin.

Gentle Cleansing Face and Body Wipes: Made from soft organic cotton and lightly scented with organic lavender essential oil, these alcohol free cleansing wipes are gentle enough for use on body and face. Known for its anti-bacterial and soothing properties, lavender essential oil leaves skin clean, fresh and stress free.

Gentle Softening Shampoo: Created using only the mildest ingredients to cleanse and moisturize the hair and scalp, this gentle softening shampoo leaves hair shiny and silky. A comforting blend of soothing lavender and restorative mandarin essential oils, combined with hydrating aloe and glycerin, make this gentle shampoo rich in healing properties.

Gentle Moisturizing Hair Conditioner: Specially formulated to complement the beginning gentle softening shampoo, this mild conditioner is lightweight in texture, leaves hair moisturized and hydrated, and has the calming scent of lavender oil. A blend of mandarin oil, aloe Vera juice oil and glycerin provides hair with repairing and restorative benefits.

Hydrating Lip and Cheek Balm: A distinctive blend of organic Shea butter, bees wax and jojoba oil hydrates and moisturizes lips and cheeks. This balm is infused with a light lavender scent and specially formulated with natural vitamin E to protect sensitive skin.

Indulging Body Butter: A rich, buttery moisturizer providing an intensive dry skin treatment, this body butter has a lightweight texture for quick absorption. Highly moisturizing with a blend of organic Shea and cocoa butter, as well as soothing aloe Vera and almond oil, this special formulation leaves skin hydrated and soft. For ultimate relaxation, it is lightly fragranced with a blend of revitalizing orange and sensual ylang ylang.

Aromatherapy is another added plus of the Maclaren Beginning line. Whether it’s the relaxing scent of lavender, or the energizing burst of mandarin orange, they have done a great job of using just the right amount of scent. I don’t use scented things very often because I can get overwhelmed by smell. The natural scents in Maclaren Beginning are just right.
