Thank you to 17th St Beauty Supply for gifting me these products!
Naturally, because I’m a beauty product fanatic I spend extra time seeking out things my baby can use that will be healthy, gentle and effective. My daughter has fine hair, and semi-sensitive skin that requires nourishing products to keep her hair and skin baby soft and comfortable, so when I was gifted a few products from Original Sprout I was excited to see how they would work for her. My biggest concerns for her are: would it help with dry patches? Would it cause breakouts, and would it leave her fine hair greasy or heavy.
Original Sprout specializes in producing an entire line of products that are vegan, cruelty-free, and formulated without questionable parabens, nanoparticles, sulfates or propylene glycol. In addition to that, they steer clear of potential allergy inducing and hormone disrupting ingredients like lavender, tea tree, gluten, soy or dairy components, and made for both children and adults to enjoy.
My daughter takes 3-4 baths a week. I don’t like to over do it, but always make sure she gets a bath after her swim classes to rinse off any chlorine from the pool . She doesn’t need lots of suds, and quite frankly, she’ll try to eat them if they’re there, so I appreciate a formula that isn’t TOO bubbly.
The Hair & Body Babywash is delicately scented and comes in a flip top tube so you can easily use it one-handed while handling a baby in the bathtub. We haven’t had any issues with wash getting into her eyes, but I’m relieved to know it’s a super gentle formula just in case some gets on her face. Not all baby products are tear-free, did you know that? I love a two in one product like this since I keep her bathcare products right at our kitchen sink. It just makes things easier.
I love a good hair conditioner but wasn’t sure my baby needed one, I mean she doesn’t have long hair and “deep conditioner” sounded like it might be a bit heavy for someone with barely any hair. But Original Sprout’s Deep Conditioner made Zoe’s hair even softer than it normally is, and rinsed away easily. I kind of feel this is a special treat product to use–not every time, but every once in a while. I think it’ll be great when her hair gets longer and we have to worry about tangles and perfecting a smooth ponytail.
After every bath we cover her head to toe with a body cream and Original Sprout’s Scrumptious Baby Cream was a hit in our home. It’s the perfect time for me to give her little legs, feet and back a mini massage while keeping her skin perfectly moisturized. It smells nice, is non-greasy, and contains soothing zinc and calendula to keep her skin happy. I also learned their formula uses rosemary which helps repel insects naturally which is an added bonus.
And for those days when we want her hair (or mine) to look extra good we use a dab of their Natural Styling Balm which helps hold hair in place without a sticky or crunchy feel. I love to do a side part on her hair and comb her bangs to the side. So little is needed to keep that freshly combed look and helps hold my whispies back when I wear a mom bun.
And while Summer just came to an end, I do live on the California coast so we pretty much still have bright sunny days that still require sunscreen. Original Sprout Face & Body SPF 27 Sunscreen worked great for both Zoe and I. I can’t stand sunscreen that you “feel” on, and thick sunscreens are difficult to put on a wiggly baby. This one spread easily and rubbed in quickly. The formula relies on Zinc for protection, and didn’t cause any breakouts for me which is a big bonus that both mommy and daughter can use.
Would I buy Original Sprout after these gifts are gone? Absolutely! In fact, I have my eye on their new Protein Hair Mist and Some other shampoo and conditioner for myself. Everything smelled very nice and left my baby’s hair and skin nice and soft.
