Opt for these products when available and follow the instructions provided for the child's age group.

WRONG order delivered

I had ordered 30g cream @ £7.99, paying extra for urgent delivery. Welzo delivered15g cream @£4.99. I complained and they credited me with £2 when the difference was £3. So you may say only £1 That is not the point I wanted 30g so why not send me 15g at their cost. NEVER will I buy from them again if they cannot complete a simple order as described
