Sparklehearts: Review and Giveaway

The last time I took Lily to get her hair cut, the stylist suggested that we use a separate shampoo and conditioner on her hair (up until now, I had been using a 2-in-1 product).  Well, Lily always gravitates to the flashy products in the store and not always the ones that are best for her hair.

When I was approached about doing a review on Sparklehearts natural beauty products for girls, I did a little research on their products and I knew it would be an instant hit.  First of all, if I could give an award for the cutest website I have ever seen, it would definitely go to Sparklehearts!  The website is girly, colorful, and SPARKLY (not to mention easy to navigate)!

The founders of Sparklehearts, Hilary Orr and Darcy McMahon, seem to have the same problem I did.  Their search for natural beauty products for their daughters that also appealed to the fun, sparkly side of the girls came up empty.  From the press release:

Sparklehearts products are made from 99.6% natural ingredients that are completely “skinemy”-free, that means no harmful toxins or unpleasant ingredients. Instead, they use essential oils, violet extract, coconut, Shea butter, and green tea extract in their products. So, they not only feel and smell great, but because they’re all-natural they’re actually better for the body. Their products are never tested on animals and are packaged in stylish bottles using 100% post-consumer recycled materials.”

Sparklehearts was nice enough to send Lily the Shine Shampoo and the Rainbow Soft Conditioner.  Lily’s first reaction when opening the box was, “oooooooohhhhh!!”  So, the stylish bottles were a hit right off the bat.  She was excited that the bottles are pumps which she can easily dispense herself with no help from Mom.  Next,  she HAD to smell them.  Again, she was not dissappointed.  She described both products as smelling like candy.


Of course, in true diva fashion, Lily insisted on taking a bath right NOW! The shampoo lathered very well with only 2 pumps of product and the conditioner left her hair silky smooth.  I can definitely tell a difference now that we are using a separate shampoo and conditioner.  It is also comforting to know that the Sparkleheart products are always paraben, phthalate, and sodium lauryl/laureth free!  One of the Sparkleheart values is “choosing natural and safe products NOW will result in heathlier, longer-lasting beauty LATER!”


Sparklehearts currently offers five products:  Shine Shampoo, Rainbow Soft Conditioner, Peace Out No Knots Hair Detangler, Bubbling Blooms Body Wash and Sweet Hearts Sparkly Body Lotion.  I am definitely going to invest in more products for Lily and I think this would make great birthday gifts as well!
