Bye, Bye Harmful Chemicals, Hello TruKid! Review/Giveaway (1 winner of Silly Shampoo + Sunny Days Sunscreen) ***ENDED***

Standard

TruKid sent me their, “Silly Shampoo” and “Sunny Days Face & Body Stick” to do a review on. I was really excited to try their products because TruKid is known for their natural and free of all those harmful chemicals that you find in other everyday kid products.

The “Silly Shampoo” is an organic product free of harmful chemicals such as BPA & Phthalate, Paraben, SLS, 1-4 Dioxane, and gluten.  My rugrat princess was automatically drawn in on how colorful the products were. She started looking at them as though she was examining them! She noticed that the, “Silly Shampoo” had a face with silly hair on it. She read what it said by sounding it out, “Haaa-irrr” and knew this was for her hair. What’s so wonderful about the TruKid products is that there so kid friendly.

“TruKid’s philosophy is to create a sustainable future for our kids by teaching them to take care of themselves, each other, and the environment.”

My princess was so excited about using her new silly shampoo. I let her take the bottle and squeeze the shampoo into her hands. I actually told her too much because all we needed was just a small amount, about the size of a quarter. Their shampoo lathers so great compared to other shampoos we’ve used in the past. She felt like a big girl now, knowing that the face with silly hair was her silly shampoo! The next day we tried the pump lid they sent with the products. She loved how easy it was to pump the shampoo right into her hands. It reminded her of using our hand soap. My rugrat has crazy hair also, and it’s so hard to do anything with her hair. I love how soft the “Silly Shampoo” left her hair and the shine that it left is amazing!! Her hair just looked so healthy compared to what it did look like before using the shampoo. The smell of the shampoo was something my rugrat and I kept talking about. The smell is like a citrus and smells so wonderful!!!

This is right after she got out, her hair isn't dried completely but you can tell how healthy and how beautiful the shine is. She has curly hair, and the TruKid shampoo left her hair so soft!!

Even though it’s fall out and the nights are so cold. We’ve had some really sunny days here lately. I used the “Sunny Days Face & Body Stick” which is SPF 30+, UVA/UVB broad spectrum, all natural, and water resistant. I love how easy the stick is just to take it and rub it all on the face, neck, and arms. Unlike a lot of other sunscreen that we’ve tried this one isn’t all sticky. It doesn’t have the gooey type of feeling. It just blends right into the skin without leaving all that mess behind! It’s also very convienient to carry in my purse. It’s still important for your children to have some sort of sun protection throughout the year even during winter. This is definitely a great product for our little rugrat because she doesn’t even remember I put it on her. She loves to complain and has always complained about other sunscreens and never liked me putting them on her. She loves how the, “Sunny Days” smells so great like the “Silly Shampoo” with the citrus smell. She also loves that it doesn’t irritate her skin. She and I both have very sensitive skin.

 About TruKid

TruKid is a California based lifestyle company for kids that focuses on creating healthy habits and promoting positive choices for children and families. Our natural, value-priced skincare line is accompanied by a host of fun, educational materials such as rhymes, songs, and games; all of which work towards teaching children how to care for themselves and the world around them.

We provide products free of harmful chemicals in order to protect little bodies. We have created a, “Toxic Bad Guys” list in order to raise awareness in parents and kids about potentially harmful ingredients commonly found in personal care products. Ingredients on this list, including sodium lauryl sulfate, parabens and petroleum, are not found in TruKid products. By educating parents, we hope to assist them in making informed, safe decisions for themselves and their families.

Whenever possible we replace traditional with biodegradable or recyclable materials. Our biodegradable formulas have been specifically designed to protect, moisturize and nourish children’s sensitive skin. TruKid makes smart decisions easy for parents by providing a line of gentle, natural and organic skincare that is safe to use on babies as well as big kids.

TruKid created a learning system based on the idea that kids learn better when having fun. We named our products using words in kids’ everyday vocabularies, like silly, funny, happy, and cool. Our brightly colored bottles are coded so children know their use: blue for cleansing, green for nourishing and orange for sun protection. Additionally, all products are stamped with the, “TruKid Learning System” symbol which enables kids to identify what part of their body it’s for (face, body, hair, etc.). The combination allows children to build independence while instilling healthy habits to last a lifetime. By combining all natural skincare with fun and education, TruKid cultivates the relationship between healthy habits and being a kid.

Our product is skincare, our business is healthy living.

You can find downloadable printouts of “Earn-A-Star Checklists” to help kids keep track of the good things they do (brush their teeth, eat a healthy breakfast, put on sunscreen, etc)

When it comes down to the TruKid products that I reviewed I would recommend them to any mommy, daddy or grandparent out there. This is definitely a must-have for us now. I know from now on when we need a kid friendly product that is free of all those harmful chemicals leaving our child feeling great, our choice is going to be TruKid!! It makes me feel so great as a parent knowing that I’m using such safe products on my child. You might think well I only pay $3 at Wal-Mart for my child’s shampoo so I don’t want to pay any extra. TruKid products are well worth the value you pay for them especially knowing that your little one is safe! Plus, their organic and all natural. They work so great you only need to use a small amount of the product. One bottle of shampoo can last forever, as long as you don’t let your little one do the judging on the amount to use.

*** TruKid have been so sweet to offer all my followers a coupon code for *FREE* Silly Shampoo with any order of $35 or more, if ordered on the TruKid website!***

Coupon Code: sillymom (1 use per customer)
