Our review <3
I opened the box and let Diva take out the wrapping and Diva was ecstatic to see the cute little characters on them! That was an indication for her that they were hers :) Making them special to her, she seriously wanted to carry them around and play with them LOL I thought these were adorable and since i never went out of my way to buy specialty bath products this was a first for us and i was happy to be able to review such a respected fun line of non toxic products for kiddies.  Milo the skunk and Bobo the dragon

We began with Milo's shampoo/body wash 2 in 1.

Scent: Immediately WE noticed the enticing fragrance of citrus, it was so light and lemony Diva said "Mommy this smells REALLY Good YUM!" and i am a smell queen so its the first impression stamper for me!.

Color: Almost of a liquid pearl swirled honey color

Texture: The texture was smooth and liquidy/creamy almost foam feeling but richer than foam. I didn't expect the texture to be so cloud like being a shampoo and body wash mixed :) I cold barely feel the texture slipping between my fingers. This is a great combination product, the texture tells alot.

I played around with amounts and applications as usual and i found that only 2 squirts of this shampoo covered Diva's whole head (YAY). The lather was instant and spread quickly, it seemed like there was no end to the lather. ( a PLUS in our book). I just couldn't get over the scent! Its like i was grating fresh lemons near a waterfall!

(Excuse the blurry-ness our bathroom has weird lighting and she was moving)

After i shampooed her hair i noticed that her hair was silky smooth and tangle free her curls looked replenished and full of spunk! Smelling as fresh as a summers breeze so i took the TT to it and and sent her to bed with no conditioner or moisturizer to see how it would act alone. Sleeping on her satin pillow case and no bonnet.
The next morning i ran my fingers through her hair going outwards in a fluffing type motion from underneath her hair. I had NO trouble running my fingers through her un-product having hair after only shampooing.  I pulled out my wide tooth comb and ran in through her ends first and she had minimal tiny tangles if any that my fingers were too wide for.  Her hair had nice texture and it still had the fresh lemony scent, it was not real frizzy either!! ( Just for my comfort i feel the need to add a moisturizer after any product that isn't a moisturizer and that has sulfates such as this one. :)

As a body wash I used it on both my son and my daughter since my son has sensitive skin i deemed this fit to try on him being natural with organic ingredients.  I pumped 1 squirt of body wash per kid and Diva loved the feel of it and of course adored the scent as previously discussed :) I like how smooth and lathery this was as a body wash! Just that tiny bit covered each one of them entirely and didn't just run right off of them. It wasn't hard to get off either, i just took a cup of water and pured it over each of them a couple times and the body wash rinsed off leaving behind a light hint of citrus and baby soft smooth skin.

Diva R usually has dry skin especially around her knees back and elbows so id have to say this is a good body wash in our book it left great results for both of my children who have completely different skin textures.  The shampoo was great on my son also ( i did try it on him too) Although wanted to play with the bottles in the tub he really liked the characters :P He has silky fine blonde hair and his hair it REALLY shined in :) This is a wonderful product for babies especially and i would say fit for young children too :)

Bobo's Baby Bubble Bath

Scent: I can smell a hint of mint and lemon grass right away.

Color: It is almost the color of olive oil mixed with honey

Texture: Silky, soapy, like olive oil but not oily just soapy feeling :) Thinner than thick and not runny, kind of in between textures.

We LOVE bubble bath in general so i expected a good experience as always :)  I used about 2-3 table spoon size amount per bath and a decent amount of bubbles were created instantly and they kept growing and multiplying by the dozens  Kids were floating on bubbles it seemed :) LOL.  The scent of the bubble bath went away shortly and diffused into the bath but was refreshing as i poured them in :)  The awesome thing about this bubble bath is that the bubbles seriously lasted through the bath and there after! We had Mr. Bubbles bubble bath last (OLD SCHOOL-This is the kind i had when i was a kid :))
and the bubble disappeared quick and didn't have really a fun or good smell so this is a good bubble bath in our opinion! Diva was so happy that the bubbles actually stayed for her to play with!

I scooped up some bubbles to see if they still held the fragrance of peppermint/lemongrass and i couldn't smell any in the bubbles but it was in the bath alright :) as i got closer i could smell it. It left the water being softened and the kids skin was silky soft too with the combination of the Milo's body wash and Bobo's bubble bath together.

To sum it up :) This was a pleasure to review this great set of products and we look forward to using them up! Thank you Karli for giving us the opportunity to win these in your giveaway!! and a BIG thanks to Kelly from My true Nature for blessing Karli with these wonderful products to share with her readers!
