What can I say, you don’t know the true luxury of a relaxing warm shower until you find yourself without hot water. Recently our hot water system broke down unexpectedly which left our family of seven out in the cold, literally. But tough as they are even a chilly shower doesn’t stop my tribe from getting clean and scrubbing up while putting the newest ecostore products to the test:

Designed with the young, sensitive skin of children in mind the brand new ecostore Kids range is guaranteed to get your precious little ones squeaky clean and smelling delicious without exposing them to hidden nasties. The ecostore Kids range is safer for you and safer for the world we live in, so it’s a double win! Did you know ecostore uses unique biodegradable renewable sugarcane plastic packaging? It’s just another way they show they care.

From the top of their head to the tips of their wiggly toes, ecostore Kids Foam to the Max (RRP $9.99, 350ml) is sure to get the thumbs up from everyone. As a mum I love the practical 3-in-1 concept (shampoo, conditioner and body wash), the handy pump flacon (one pump is plenty and no waste) and of course the safe plant and mineral based formula that cleanses gently yet thoroughly. At the same time kids love the generous foam for extra bath time fun and the pleasant Pear Pop or Fruity Zing fragrance.

No matter how old you are, we all love the luxurious feeling of sinking into a big sea of bubbles. A little squeeze of ecostore Kids Double Trouble Bubble Maker (RRP $9.99, 400ml) in your bath water is enough to create a fun foam frenzy that will win over even the biggest bath hater. Just keep the bottle away from little hands because they’ll keep wanting to go back for more! Bonus: The Pear Pop scent is absolutely scrumptious.

Now I haven’t tried out this special kids hand soap myself just yet, but the word on the street is that ecostore has successfully made hand washing cool again with the new ecostore Kids Foam it Up (RRP $9.99, 350ml). One bottle of this super soap lasts an enormous 500 pumps, that’s a lot of toilet trips and excellent value for money. The gentle natural formula is safe for little ones aged 2+, putting an end to sticky fingers and greasy hands without using nasty chemicals.

These five fabulous ecostore Kids products are now available at Chemist Warehouse stores across Australia as well as the Chemist Warehouse online store.

You can tell Mother’s Day is around the corner by the type of junk mail in your letterbox. If you can believe the catalogues perfume, pyjamas, chocolates and toiletries are the most popular gifts and let’s not forget jewellery. Now I don’t know if it is just me but you would not make me happy with most of the jewellery in stores. Aside from the fact that it is often far from beautiful (in my opinion) most of it is also not practical for busy mums.


DahliaDelicate chains that brake at the tiniest pull of baby hands, small gaps for bacteria to grow in and rock solid (or even toxic!) materials that will damage that cute first tooth of your inquisitive, teething baby, surely there has to be a better option? Australian mama Jennifer decided to take matters into her own hands and designed a beautiful range of teething jewellery that is both safe and stylish for mum and baby and so Harper+Hudson was born.

WillowThe Harper+Hudson range offers a lovely selection of teething necklaces and teething bangles in a rainbow of colours and styles to suit your taste, mood and outfit. All products are made with non-toxic 100% food grade silicone that is gentle on baby’s gums and teeth. Silicone is a fantastic choice of material as it does not support the growth of bacteria, fungus or mould and it is also completely free from BPA, PVC, phthalates, cadmium and lead. No nasties near your baby!

AllegraBaby Sybil may not be teething just yet but she is starting to get a little fidgety while feeding, these colourful necklaces are a great distraction and she often grabs hold of them (no more scratching my skin or her own little hands). If I get to wear my necklace that is because my other two girls love wearing Harper+Hudson too. Handy for mum: You can even wash your Harper+Hudson jewellery in the dishwasher, how easy is that?
