California Baby Review





Not the best pictures. The first picture was taken with an iPod and the second picture he wouldn't sit still! Both pictures were taken on different days.

California Baby Super Sensitive Shampoo & Bodywash

Price: $10 for 8.5oz at Target

Ingredients: Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) Leaf Juice, Decyl Polyglucose (Extracts of Corn, Coconut & Palm Oil) (100%), Vitamin E, Vegetable Glycerin, Citrus Seed Extract, Very Small Amt. (.15%, This is Less Than 1/4 of 1%), Methyl Propylparaben (Of Food Grade)

Review: I decided to try the fragarance free shampoo & body wash because A was recently diagnosed with eczema so I figured I could use this on both A and Lil Man. I washed Lil Man's hair and body with it and it worked pretty good. It did what it's supposed to do- got his hair and skin clean. Nothing too special but I still want to try it as a body wash on A.

Review: Let me first start out by saying I hate the smell of this stuff! I'm not exactly sure what the smell is but it doesn't agree with my nose. I was surprised because it's a child's product but it was so strong, it did fade after a while though. Aside from the smell, I really like this conditioner. I have been using it as a leave-in and it has left Lil Man's curls soft, defined and moisturized. I've used several things in Lil Man's hair and it seems most products are too heavy for his curls. Other products usually leave his hair really crunchy and make his hair appear to be wet. With this product, it was almost like he had nothing in his hair, just soft, gorgeous curls. A's hair likes heavier products but I'll definitely give this a go probably some time in April.

Again, these products can be purchased at your local Target for about $10. If you have tried California Baby I would love to hear what you think about their products in a comment below!
