I rarely post baby stuff on the blog, mainly because we buy the same things over and over. Nothing too exciting to share. However, I know many mamas are following this blog, and I would enjoy reading this post. I know I would! So I’m going to share a few of our recent bath & body empties that my almost four-year-old uses regularly. I’m glad that there are so many choices for kids regarding natural bath & body products. Olivia is not allergic or anything, but she does get dry skin and eczema at times. Though it was more common when she was a baby, she outgrew it somehow. And by trying to choose soothing and gentle products for her, we keep it at bay.
Good Bubble is our hand-down favorite hair and body wash brand. It’s a UK company, so is not available widely in the world yet, but you can find it at various stockists and sometimes on Amazon, too. First of all, this is a no-tear shampoo, which is a must if you want to avoid bath exorcism when you try washing your children’s hair. Also, we’ve never had problems with skin dryness or eczema flare-ups when using these washes. Absolutely amazing quality, scents (This Cloudberry Hair and Body Wash smells like candy), and the packaging is super cute, too!
I don’t know a kid who doesn’t like bath bubbles. My daughter is obsessed with them as well! There are many bath bubble brands in stores; some even have cartoon characters on the packaging, which is so tempting to the kids. Unfortunately, the ingredients are crappy, and my daughter usually ends up with dried-out and itchy skin afterward. The Love Boo Baby Soft & Splashy Bubbles were our recent choice of bath bubbles, and it’s great. It contains oat and apple extracts to make sure your kid’s skin won’t dry out. It also has a gentle scent, which reminds me of baby powder.
I was a bit unsure if my daughter would love this Green People Organic Children Bath & Shower Gel because it has lavender scent, but she does not mind it at all. The shower gel is created with lavender, aloe vera, and chamomile, so no wonder why it is very soothing and definitely suitable for sensitive skin. However, as a bubble bath, it is not very foamy and dissipates fairly quickly. So I would say there are definitely better choices for that.
So, Olivia is three, almost four, years old. If you’re familiar with kids of similar age, you know they have an opinion about everything. And a very solid one at that. So now we are into the banana toothpaste phase. And this is like the fourth tube we bought of this exact Jack N’ Jill Natural Toothpaste. I don’t mind because I like their toothpaste a lot, mostly because they contain a good amount of xylitol – 40%, which is rare. Xylitol highly prevents tooth decay and is a great option if you try avoiding fluoride. Other than that, the gel consistency is easy to use, and it cleans extremely well.
