The lovilees over at Pure Beginnings sent me some of their organic baby products to try out. The first product was their brand new baby chest rub that has just arrived on shelves. Then a 0-3 year flouride free toothpaste in a berry flavour for the princess and a 3+ year toothpaste in a vanilla mint flavour. So here with my Pure Beginnings review.
The organic toothpastes
Offcourse I had to taste the interesting flavours of these toothpastes. Loved both, but the real test was what my kids thought about it. The princess (19 months) is addicted to brushing teeth and we just have to watch out as she gets the pastes open and tries to ‘drink’ them. I really like the paste tube design. It is not as easy for her to open and make a big mess with as it has a screw cap. It tastes YUM and the princess did not mind the new flavour at all, still super keen to get her teeth looking pretty and shiny. This paste is safe to swallow as the spitting out is not yet happening.
I asked manny (aged 6) whether he liked the new toothpaste, he LOVED the monkeys on the tube and asked me what flavour the paste is. When I told him that it was Vanilla Mint he looked at me very confused ‘How is that possible?’. Which was way too difficult for me to explain, but he now insists we brush with the monkey toothpaste.
The chest rub
First let me tell you, I LOVE the smell of the chest rub. I only know 2 other brands of chest rub that I have used but this one smells a whole lot different. It has Eucalyptus and Lavendar in and is easy to spread and does not seem to leave any oil stains on the clothes! YAY as this was my irritation with the other kids rub that I used to use. Just beware… Kids fingers in the pot = mess. so use and put away! This product really helped open up the princess’ chest over the past two weeks as she has a couch and runny nose happening. (definitely purchasing this one again)
