TruKid Skin Care: Review & Giveaway

*** Camera is not uploading tonight: Pictures to come ASAP***

Okay, so I have to first admit that Monkey LOVES using lotion and washing his hands, and brushing his teeth.. he's a very sensory oriented kid and always has been.

That said, he was SUPER excited when we received a package of TruKid Natural & Organic Skin Care products to try.  We had the honor of testing Helping Hand Wash, Happy Face & Body Lotion, and Sunny Days Sunscreen Lotion.
What a fantastic set of products TruKid offers.  The first thing I noticed was the wonderfully bright colored bottles.  The products are color coded to help kids know whether they are for washing, moisturizing, or other purposes.  Each product also carries a symbol to help children learn where to use the product.  For instance, the Helping Hand Wash has a picture of a hand on the front.  This is fantastic with a preschooler, or any child who is learning to be independent!

The next thing I noticed about TruKid products is the smell.  Wow!  These smell fantasic, I wanted to eat them!  They're a little fruity, I think.  The truth is, I love using Monkey's Helping Hand Wash because my hands smell so good afterward.

The Helping Hand Wash and Happy Face & Body Lotion both come with pumps to make them easy for children to dispense on their own and get a proper amount.  Monkey loves it that he can operate the pump on his own.

Here's the kicker for me.  This is what REALLY sells me on TruKid products:  they are free of paba, parabens, phthalates, synthetic dyes, nano-particles, petroleums, chemicals, propylene glycol, sulfates, paba and gluten. 


I feel good about letting my boys use these great products, and about using them myself.  I love the independence they allow for Monkey, and the fact that I don't have to worry about what is in them!  (oh and the smells... I know I said it before, but they smell so good!)


BUY IT:
Right now TruKid is offering $5.00 flat rate shipping in the US!  What a great deal!  Check out all of their products on the TruKid website.
