Summer Hair & Skin from @NaturesGate

My tween and teen love testing out shampoo, conditioner and body washes and they certainly voice their opinions on them all. That is why the products have to smell nice and work well. We got a chance to test out @NaturesGate Pomegranate & Sunflower hair defense shampoo and conditioner as well as the pomegranate body wash. They loved the smell and liked how they all coordinated. Seriously, how many times do you find something for both the hair and body that smells good and is the same scent? No one wants to smell like a hundred different fragrances. This is the perfect combo for summertime hair and skin care (and great for moms for color treated hair). With a blend of pomegranate and sunflower petals it smells fresh and clean.

Nature’s Gate also makes this great product – The Nature’s Gate Glow Lotion in Medium – not as dark as a self- tanner (but if you have very light skin it will be a bit tan, but still a nice color). You can also use the lotion daily to build a deeper tan.  My teen wanted to try one of my self-tanner lotions so I had her test this glow lotion out as I felt better about the ingredients in this lotion -or should I say the ingredients not included:   it’s Vegan, NON GMO, Paraben Free, Gluten Free, Soy Free, Mineral Oil Free, Petrolatum Free, PEG Free, Butylene Glycol Free, Cruelty Free! How many self-tanners can say that? Plus it has vitamin E in it so it is very moisturizing.

I have to say I did not instruct her how to work a self-tan cream and she slathered it on and I thought, oh boy this is going to come out bad however it was even, there were no streaks and the next day it was a nice light tan shade.  She and I were pleased at the result!

Disclosure:  Natures’s Gate sent me the above products to test out. All opinions are my own in this blog post.

Product Review: KRLY Kids shampoo, conditioner and styling spray gel

If you have a child that has really curly hair you know how hard it is to get them to comb it after washing it!  Especially during the summer season with all the chlorine, salt water and sun, it makes it even more difficult to wash and wear their curly hair.

Our friends at Ouidad sent us some samples of their KRLY Kids No Time for Tears Shampoo, No More Knots 2 in 1 Conditioner and Pump n’ Go Styling Spray Gel to test out.

I loved the smell of all the products and the comb went right through my younger daughters’ very long, wavy hair.  I have naturally wavy hair and tested the products the other night after a day at the pool and no more dry, tangled hair for me! I am sure if you buy this for your curly haired kids you will be using it at some point!

Ouidad created these products to gently cleanse, condition and style children’s curly hair.  The KRLY Kids line is gentle, moisturizing and easy to use.  Known as the curl expert Ouidad has been designing products specifically formulated for those with curly hair. The products are lightweight and water soluble leaving the hair free of residue and product build up.  The line is available here at their web site, Ouidad certified salons and Sephora.
