Being a blogger with a network of people, I get asked to review quite a number of different products. Not only is it awesome to receive packages in the mail (it’s like Christmas year round for me), but it is even better when it is stuff I get to try out with my kids.
When the opportunity came up to try out Fisher-Prices’ Bath and Body products I was super excited. We have had Fisher-Price products in this household for almost 10 years. Whether it was toys, books or gear you were sure to find something.
Recently however I got to enjoy a bag of goodies from their Bath & Body lineup. Included was the following:
Newborn: Sensitive Skin Cleanser + Shampoo
Newborn: Sensitive Skin Soothing Ointment
Newborn: Sensitive Skin Body Lotion
Infant: Calming Foam Bath
Infant: Creamy Baby Oil
Infant: Moisturizing Lotion
Infant: Soothing Body Cream
Infant: 2-in-1 Foaming Shampoo and Body Wash
Infant: Foaming Hand Soap
Infant: Detangling Spray
Toddler: Bubble Bath
Toddler: 3-in-1 Shampoo, Conditioner + Body Wash
Of the above products I will highlight a few of our favourites tested so far in the house.
1. Foaming Hand Soap – What kid doesn’t love foaming hand soap? (or adult for that matter, c’mon just admit it). A nice gentle soap in a cute animal shaped bottle with an easy pump for dispensing. The soap is not overpowering and once rinsed off leaves a light clean after scent. Naturally with 3 kids this didn’t last long as they were making every excuse to go wash their hands…again.
2. Detangling Spray – Although both of my daughters have fairly thin straight hair, my niece on the other hand has gorgeous long curly locks, straight out of Hollywood. Her hair is stunning…and after bath time becomes one huge hot mess. Cue in the detangling spray and what was once a large task has now become a much less shorter one. My sister has used detangling sprays in the past, some of them were even good, but a lot left her hair feeling greasey and overly saturated. The Fisher-Price brand eliminated that. Although we need to use more than your average amount with little miss curls, there was no over abundance of product left stuck on her hair. Once it dried her hair was light and ringlets were soft and springy.
3. 3-in-1 Shampoo, Conditioner & Body Wash – I love a multi use product! With a busy lifestyle sometimes it’s a get in, get washed and get out and it is a beautiful thing. With both girls having super thin hair, and one have rather sensitive skin, I have used infant lotions and potions on them for years. The shampoos have left their hair so soft and shiny and when I hug them and stick my nose in their hair and breathe in it takes me back to when there were little babes. It is even better when they have a complete all-in-one to use because their hair is clean and so is the rest of them. Even they love the way they smell and they can’t sneak and tell me they’ve washed when they haven’t because I can follow the scent from head to toe if need be.
4. Moisturizing Lotion – Just because it says for 6+ Months doesn’t mean you can’t use it at 6 years. With winter season now on us everyone knows it means dry, cracking skin as well. My issue is usually the dry cracked skin, but I can’t use random moisturizers because so many of them are packed with parabens or other nasty stuff and since my son has suffered from eczema since birth, although far less now that he’s much older, I need to be careful what I’m putting on him. The first thing I checked for was the ingredients and was happy to see no parabens, no dyes and no phthalates either. I can say that after using this his skin is not cracking as much, there are less obvious dry spots and my ‘scaley dragon’ on the backs of his shoulders is gone. Do I think this cured it? Not at all. Do I think this product does what it says it is going to do by moisturizing? Absolutely. It locks in the moisture to keep the skin feeling soft.
The only downside to these products is when I use the moisturizer on the 9 year old boy because it ‘smells like babies mom’. I guess the only lesson I have been able to learn during this review is I can’t keep them young forever. *Sigh* At least the girls don’t mind 😉
