With only one more week until the kids go back to school we’re busy shopping for the last bits and pieces and adding the final touches to school bags and uniforms. I can’t believe I will have two 8-year olds going into the ‘big building’ this year! They sure grow too fast, before we know it I’ll have twin tweens on my hands… If you already have a tween or teen girl heading back to school you’ll love this great ‘Back to School’ giveaway from our friends at Girl Lane:
Developed by a pharmacist using natural and botanical ingredients the Girl Lane product range will help young girls learn to care for their skin, body and hair the right way. With the start of a new school year in mind Girl Lane has put together this sweet pack for one lucky winner:
It is no secret that skin dries out quickly, especially in this hot, dry Australian summer weather and with airconditioners flat out in every home, car and school. Made with soothing Aloe Vera a quick spray of this compact Girl Lane Intensive Hydration Mist (RRP $11.99, 50ml) will help you wave goodbye to dry, irritated skin and welcome back calm, moisturised skin. Our daughter says it feels nice and cool, it’s definitely a thumbs up!
You are never too old or young to learn about slip, slop and slide and it is super important to teach our children to be aware and pro-active when it comes to sun protection. The Girl Lane High Protection Sunscreen (RRP $9.99, 40ml) is safe for sensitive skin and offers powerful SPF50+ protection against harmful sun. It’s an ideal size for backpacks or sports bags and is even 4 hours water resistant, bring on sports day and swim carnival.
At the end of a busy day it may be the last thing on your daughter’s mind, but a good cleansing routine will definitely help keep tricky teenage skin fresh and healthy. It doesn’t have to take long, these Girl Lane Gentle Cleansing Wipes (RRP $6.99, 25 pack) are quick and easy to use and can be used anytime and anywhere (they’re a great refresher throughout the day too). They are free from nasty parabens and SLS and instead treat the skin to a dose of nature’s goodness with Aloe Vera and pomegranate.
As a 33-year old mum I may not exactly be a girl anymore but that doesn’t mean the Girl Lane Tropical Paw Paw Lip Balm (RRP $5.49, 15g) can not be my favourite new lippy. This fruity Paw Paw balm feels, smells (and dare I say, even tastes) absolutely delicious. Containing a selection of caring ingredients like Papaya, Jojoba, Shea Butter and Macademia Oil it leaves lips soft and shiny and the lip shaped-applicator makes it easy for young girls to apply without mess or waste.
To keep your child’s school bag tidy and organised and all these handy body basics neatly together they are throwing in a cute Girl Lane Metallic Bag (RRP $10). This spacious storage bag is perfect for a trip to the toilets but also great for sports, school camp or a holidays. It even has a handy see-through front so you can see in a flash if you’ve got all favourite gear before leaving the house.
