Major Berrie Sweet Pick Alert!
Have I mentioned that I love what I do recently? If it wasn't for this blog, I wouldn't have had the chance to learn about the new kids line from Kiss My Face and personally try each product on Buttercup!
I heart this stuff in a major way. The ingredients are natural and organic, the packaging is downright adorable, and it makes Buttercup smell good enough to eat after each bath.
And I am also very pleased to report that Kiss My Face is one of the only categry leadin companies to have retained its independent status since they opened their doors 25 years ago!
Oh, and did I mention that there is no animal testing, no artificial colors, no animal ingredients, and no unecessary chemicals in any of their products? Now, that is something I can feel good about using on my little girl.
So what were my faves from the kids line? I thought you'd never ask!
*Kids Detangler: Buttercup has got soe major curls coming through, and unless managed, it's heading towards the land of tangles, knots, and tears. I used to use something from a company that happens to rhyme with Shmonsons, but I really only used it because I didn't know what else was out there. But the Kiss My Face Detangler? Oh, it smells yummy, works like a charm, and actually strengthens her hair!
*Kids Toothpaste: Buttercup is a tooth-brushing fiend. After some, most, well...when I remember meal, she lets me brush her teeth before she gets to have a go at it herself. I love the toothpaste because its flouride free which is great for little kids, sugar free (which makes me wonder why anyone would put sugar in toothpaste to begin with),and because even though I don't happen to think the taste is yummy enough to want to brush my teeth three times in a row, but Buttercup sure does...and it's her opinion that counts here, isn't it?
*kids foaming shampoo and body wash: Two-in-one never sounded (or smelled) so good. This stuff eliminates the need for spending money on more than one product, and has wonderfully natural ingredients like aloe vera, green tree extract, and a natural essential oil blend. One little hint: Squeeze the bottle, don't pump the top. It makes it easier for kids to help bathe themselves, and I'd like to hug the Kiss My Face employee who thought of this.
*kids foaming hand wash: Buttercup loves to do as Momma does, so I am all for letting her develop a sense of hygiene at a young age. Everyy time she sees me wash my hands, she reaches up and waits for me to rest her on my knee over the sink she she can wash her own hands with te Kiss My Face kids foaming hand wash. It smells great, free of all that nasty stuff I don't want anywhere near my daughter, and gets the job done.
Kiss My Face has generously offered ONE winner the chance to try the entire kids product line. That's right, folks--the entire product line. Yeah, I know, you can thank me later.
