My Review:

We received the Dancing Hair Detangler and Bubbly Body Wash. I really liked the how the bottles are bright and colorful.

Bubbly Body Wash

My kid’s are REALLY messy. They are always getting dirt on their face and juice on their shirts. So, needless to say- they need A LOT of baths. I was looking for body washes for kids that was chemical free, and FUN for the kids to use.

Did I find it? Yes. With the Bubbly Body wash, a little goes a long way. I just squirt a little on a washcloth and get to scrubbing those dirty children of mine. It bubbles up extremely well. (So well in fact that they wanted to use it as bubble bath) So we did. I put just a tiny drop under the faucet, and they were playing forever it seemed.

This body was is safe for sensitive skin, because it removes the surface oil without stripping the skin of natural oils and drying it out. Aidan has sensitive skin, he always has. When he was a baby I had to use unscented wipes and lotions on him because he would get tiny little bumps from the chemicals in the “Scent”. I had to end up using Johnson’s Regular Wash most of his life, until now.

Aidan and Adisyn both love playing in the water, but Aidan HATES having water poured over his head when I wash his body, ears, neck, and face. He says “No, give me a towel”. I go ahead and wash him off and then give him a towel to wipe his eyes with. He has been so much better at letting me wash him off with the Bubbly Body wash. He thinks the Bubbles “tickle” him.. Anything that will keep him from twisting and turning and acting like he is having a heart attack in the bath.

It smells citrusy, and is just the right amount of smell. It isn’t overpowering, but it is strong enough so that I get a whiff if the kids if they fly by me after the bath.

For $8.99 you have your kid WILLING to want to be bathed, whether they hate having water on their face or not. It also doubles as a bubble bath, so they can spend some adventure time in the land of bubbles.


Dancing Hair Detangler

Adisyn HATES having her hair brushed. Before we met the Dancing Hair Detangler, I would put my conditioner in her hair and let it sit for about 3 minutes before washing it out. She would scream like I was killing her, and I was barely even brushing. She tends to get a million tangles in her hair.

I loved the Detangler from Trukid because I didn’t have to soak her entire head for it to be tangle free. Just a couple of spritzes of this and no more hurting while brushing. I hated having her feeling like her hair was being pulled. No more.

I had tried several detanglers before. Sure they smelled amazing, but they all left a greasy residue in her hair. A child’s hair is much different from a grow-ups because it is thinner. So you don’t need put many ingredients in a child’s hair. This was perfect because her hair still looked clean and smelled great after.

I also used the Detangler for myself. I don’t usually have a lot of tangles, but when I do- I hate brushing them straight out. Brushing tangles without a product to help can actually hurt your hair. It breaks it and makes it uneven.


These product gets an A+ from me. I love it. I love that it smells amazing, has no chemicals, and has the awesome bottles that my kids think is “magic”.
