Maclaren Beginnings Competition and Review.

When I say Maclaren what do you think of? Pushchairs? Formula 1?

Things are changing at Maclaren, they still make the fabulous unbeatable buggies but they are now branching out. A fabulous range of beautiful nursery furniture has hit Harrods shop floor and also a range of high quality toiletries for Mother and Baby 'Beginnings' is now available online.

Several months ago I was very kindly sent as a total surprise a box heaving full of the new smellies range by Maclaren called Beginnings Range. It has taken me this long to actually tell you about it because we are still wading through the products.

My bathroom is now adorned with five fragranced candles that fill the room with the most beautiful scent even without them being lit.

I am a real sucker for packaging and admit to buying items just because they are well presented. Maclaren did not let me down on this front, each item was boxed in cardboard tubing and the minimal branding and muted colours made it very visually appealing.

The actual products smell amazing, all made with holistic aromatherapy oils and designed to promote harmony, bonding and well being. Tabitha and I both have sensitive skin and have found no issues with the Beginnings Range.

The best part of this review is I am giving you the chance to win your own travel kits of the range, and never fear its one for you one for the baby so you won't have to share!

Purifying Bath and Shower Elixir 25ml
Supporting Belly Balm 15g
Connecting Massage oil 25ml
Alleviating Leg Lotion 25ml
Balancing Facial Mist 25ml
Nurturing Bath Milk 25ml
