*Ad – gifted for review

In previous years N has seemed to be sensitive to various children’s  (and standard) sun lotions, so we’ve been using the Green People children’s sun lotion with no problems.  When we were given the chance to review something else from the range over at Big Green Smile. I knew what we’d choose.  N loves using shower gel in the bath, so I decided on the Green People organic citrus crush shower gel.

N loves having his own shower gel, and I prefer him using something that’s for him.  For starters it means that our shower gel lasts longer!  I don’t know what the OH does with it when he and N have their bath and shower!

The Green People shower gel is organic, and good for children with sensitive skin.  As soon as you open the flip lid, you can smell the citrus which I love.  It’s quite a small tube, but you don’t need a lot to get a good lather.  Always helpful when N prefers to put it from his hands onto his sponge and then lather it on there before asking for more to put on his body. Hmmm.

The aloe helps retain moisture, and prevent drying out of the skin, and it certainly feels smooth on my hands after washing him.  There are no nasties – parabens, phthalates or artificial fragrances, so great for sensitive skins.  Although N doesn’t have sensitive skin (except the last couple of years with children’s sun cream which seems to have now gone away), it can be reassuring to know that there are pure toiletries out there for children.

The only downside is the cost.  At nearly £9, it’s more than I’d pay for shower gel or bath products by a long way.  Yes it’s great and lasts a long time, but it’s a shower gel I’d be hiding from the OH in order to control how much is used at a time.  Handily, N can’t open the flip lid yet, so at least there’s no danger of him squirting half the pack away in one go.

  1. Oh I love Green People stuff, we used their suncream in Sicily this summer and I highly recommend that too. My two youngest both suffer with exczema and it was fab for them x x

    • I’ve been recommending the GP sun cream for a couple of years now. I like that it’s not factor 50 as well, which is just too high for this country.

    • I know. Thankfully it’s lasting because the OH just uses our shower gel for N. I’m thinking of nicking it for myself!

    I got a couple of sample sachets of the organic babies range, but we haven’t tried them yet. It does seem quite expensive for a shower gel x
