I really like this flavor. It's sweeter and less mint intense than the Sea Fresh and it has the vanilla. Foams well, no fluoride & no SLS. I really like it a lot, and will definately buy it again.

I gave it a 2 b/c the flavor was good, but...I bought this as we've been searching for a toothpaste our daughter would like w/o fluoride & SLS. She really liked the flavor and it cleaned well, but it dried out her lips, and she got a little rash around some of her mouth. When we stopped the toothpaste it went away. We tried it again recently, but it happened again. I think she's reacting to the sodium lauroyl sarcosinate in it. Wished it would've worked b/c she really liked the flavor. If your child isn't sensitive to that ingredient you should be ok.
I just got this and used it. It suds up really well. It feels really good too, kinda silky. I have sensitive skin, and so far haven't had a problem. Like the rest of their lavender products it's a very calming scent. I think I paid under $7 for it on sale. I have the matching body lotion, and I think they work well together.
I just got this and have used it a couple of times. So far so good. I have sensitive skin and I haven't had a problem. I'd say it's a mid-weight lotion. Not too light, not too heavy. It has shea butter in it which I really like. I got it on sale and I think I payed around $8. I have the matching shower gel and like it too.
I just started using this w/the matching shampoo. I've used the pair about 3 times now. Reminds of Avalon Organics, but in smell only. The quality is much better. It seems to work well for me so far. I don't use much at all since I have short hair, but it moisturizes just enough without weighing it down. I have pretty sensitive skin, but it hasn't bothered me so far. I have good volume using this pairing too. I got this for $8, but it can be had on online for a lil under $7.
So far I really like this. I think I've used it 3 times along w/the matching condish. It smells really good. Reminds me of Avalon Organics, but a lot better quality and maybe better smell. Gets my hair clean and suds up well. Gives me good volume too. I have a sensitive scalp, and so far no problems. I think I paid $8 on sale, but I know I"ve seen it online for under $7. I might try the volumizing spray in the same line.

Love this stuff! I've always been a Badger girl (still am), but I can't find at the stores I frequent, so I found this. It seems to work better on my daughters lips (she's 6) than Badger did too. There isn't any taste really and it isn't heavy or anything, so I don't get the review that knocks the taste and texture. It's a great texture for a lipbalm. It rocks & I highly recomend it:)
Lotions/ Creams -Johnson & Johnson - natural baby lotion

I liked this as much as I liked the baby wash and the Soothing Naturals line, which is not at all. Didn't moisturize mine or my daughter's skin. Left it dry and itch. The scent is too strong also. As with the bodywash there's nothing "natural" about it. It has a bunch of crap in, and that's all. They're just using the word "natural" to greenwash it as it's called, since there's no rules really mandating how the word natural can be used. Don't waste your money.
I tried this a while back when I was looking for better products. I didn't like this any better than I liked their Soothing Naturals line. It gave me and my daughter both mild rashes & dried our skin out like the Soothing Naturals line. As others have said the pump is bad on this. I don't like the smell, again too strong. Calling this "natural" is also a joke. It really does have a bunch of crap in it. I know CA Baby is a bit more expensive than this, but it's 100% better than this for sure.

Made my skin and my daughter's skin itch and gave us rashes (mild rashes, but none the less rashes). I didn't like the scent either. Too strong. I suggest looking for something better.
Conditioner -Clairol - Herbal Essences Body Envy Volumizing Conditioner
sparkleandshine79 12/20/2011 7:08:00 AM
I'll say the same thing I did about the shampoo, i'd give it a 0 if I could. Again, I tried this back before I was commited to products that were better for me & the environment. The shampoo wrecked my hair (see review) and the conditioner finished it off. Icing on the cake I guess you'd say. This weighed my hair down & left such a film I don't know how they say it can give you "body". It's pretty much the worst conditioner I've tried. As I said about the shampoo also, it may work for some, but don't waste your money, even if it is just a couple of bucks.
Shampoo -Clairol - Herbal Essences Body Envy Shampoo
sparkleandshine79 12/20/2011 7:01:00 AM
I used this back before I was commited to using products that were actually good for me & the environment. If I could give a 0 I would. This really is a crappy shampoo & conditioner pair. The shampoo dried my hair out, gave me a rash on my scalp and somehow managed to not clean my hair. As for any so called "body", there was none. It might work for a few people, but don't waste your money, even if it is a few bucks.
The ingredients looked good and I wanted to like it, but...It's like I was told by the person who recommened this, it's a chemistry thing. It either works or it doesn't. For me it didn't work. I think I ended up smelling really weird from it. It actually made my sweat smell worse. I might try one of their scented versions, but for now I'm using a deodorant crystal that you wet w/water and then use under your arms. It seems to last a couple of days for me without reapplying, and it's cheaper than this was.
Again, I really wanted to like this company's body products (I read good reviews), but it just didn't happen. It dried my skin out, and stung my legs when I shaved my legs w/it. This and the lotion have sat under my sink for ages w/less than half of each used.
Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - Earth Mama Angel Baby Angel Baby Lotion
sparkleandshine79 12/20/2011 6:33:00 AM
I read good review and really wanted to like this, but I couldn't. It seemed way too heavy for a lotion & it didn't sink in well. It felt waxy. I think it actually stung my legs when I put it on after I shaved. Plus the price for only 4oz was expensive.
