Have You Met Ottilie & Lulu?

No, they're not cartoon characters... Ottilie & Lulu is a line of hair and skincare created specifically for ‘tweens.

Created by New York mother and communications veteran, Deborah Hernan, Ottilie & Lulu was designed to fill the obvious void in the marketplace for a product that was “grown up” enough to be appealing to the ‘tween demographic but appeased their parents desire to protect their innocence.

Ottilie & Lulu's easy-to-use products, ranging in price from $10 to $25, include a Shiny Silky Detangler & Conditioner, Feel Good Shampoo & Body Wash, Clean Skin Facial Wipes, Everyday Moisturizer with a non-chemical Sunscreen, SPF 20 and a Body Glow Lotion. All are created with gentle formulations, of anti-oxidants for protection from environmental stresses, vitamins to nourish and enriching botanicals to soothe. They are non-irritating and do not contain parabens, phthalates, SLS, mineral oil or petrolatum. Ottilie & Lulu products are dermatologist, allergy and clinically tested (never on animals) and are made in the USA.

The great folks at Ottilie & Lulu were kind enough to send over some samples for Little Miss Lauren to try out. Of course, she was thrilled to receive beauty products meant just for her - and I was thrilled to know that they weren't full of things that could harm her. (We had been using baby shampoo previously, and well... you know all of the awful things they've found in that recently!)

She immediately decided it was bath time and brought her Feel Good Shampoo & Body Wash and her Shiny Silky Detangler & Conditioner with her. They are both minty-fresh and Lauren loved the way they smelled when she was washing her hair. She inherited my hair - fine and tangly so having a great conditioner is a must - it is wonderfully thick, so a little goes a long way. Her hair was clean, shiny and manageable when she was done - it definitely passed the Lauren test!

We also received a sample bottle of Body Glow Lotion - this great lavender scented lotion isn't oily or greasy, Lauren loved the way her skin felt and smelled when she was done putting it on.

So, if you're concerned about the safety of the bath products you're currently using for your girls, go check out Ottilie & Lulu, they have a complete line of skin and haircare that you can feel good about letting your girls use - and they'll feel all grown up with their very own products!
