Ottilie & Lulu Tween Skin and Hair Care: Review and Giveaway

There are many reasons why I love my Mom.  She is kind, generous, and a great listener.  Another reason?  She has amazing skin!  I am hoping that I inherited those genes, because her skin is still flawless and beautiful.  Fortunately, I didn’t have many inherited skin issues as a teenager but my Mom instilled good hygiene and taught me to protect my skin.  Now that I have two daughters, I want to do the same for them.

Apparently, I am not alone!  Deborah Hernan, a mother of a tween girl and former executive with Revlon, noticed the lack of products to promote skin care and personal hygiene for girls ages 7-14.  So, like any SuperMom would do, she created a natural skin and hair care line, Ottilie & Lulu, in 2009.  Her product line took off quickly and grabbed the attention of Seventeen Magazine’s Style Blog and Discovery Girls and the rest is history!

I was very excited to receive two items, the Ottilie and Lulu detangler/conditioner as well as face wipes, to try with my (almost) 7 year old daughter.  All of the products in the Ottilie and Lulu line are created without parabens, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfates, mineral oil or petroleum by-products and instead offer the following which are more nurturing to a young girl’s skin:

  • Anti-oxidants for protection against environmental stress
  • Vitamins, Wheat Protein and Jojoba Protein to keep young skin nourished and healthy
  • Chamomile Flower, Lemon Extract and other Botanicals that soothe

We first tried the Detangler/Conditioner and loved the way it smelled…very minty and refreshing!  It was thick and creamy and worked the knots out of my daughter’s hair well leaving it silky smooth.  After a long day at dance camp, she wanted to try the face wipes when she returned home to clean her face.  I didn’t notice a scent on the wipes and my daughter loved the way they felt on her skin.  There is no need to rinse after wiping clean with the face wipe, so she could do this all by herself.  The experience was a great opportunity for me to talk to her about skin care and why it is important to take care of herself!
