Sparkle Naturals is an amazing new line of natural skin care products aimed at Pre-teens, teens and of course, the young at heart. Sparkle was the brainchild of Glow Naturals, which is a wonderful skin care line for women. Sparkle is natural, organic, vegan and sulfate and paraben free! I love this idea. There are plenty of skin care lines out in the beauty hemisphere for the moms....and big sisters but now the little girls of the house with have a skin care and hair care regimen to call their own. Sparkle is also great for teens and you can rest assured that they are using something that is gentle on their young skin.
Sparkle beauty products are so fresh and pure, they are made from non-toxic, organic ingredients. They are also free of synthetic fragrances (which is a huge plus for sensitive skin kiddos like mine), artificial colorants, animal products and absolutely zero sulfates and parabens.
As a mom and especially as a "green" mom I know the effects that certain things can have on kids and adults. Let's just say that the things they put ON their bodies are just as important as what they put IN their bodies. The Sparkle line is such an exciting thing for girls with sensitive skin or allergies, these products are so effective yet they are not harsh like adult lines or other "kid based" lines. Sparkle offers hair care, facial care, bath and body products and an really cool line of bath accessories. Any girl from tween to full blown teen will be happy with these products. As a mom, you might be fending your boys away from the foaming shampoo, as I did last night.
Sparkle Naturals sent me package last week with some wonderful goodies. We received the Foaming Shampoo, the Squeaky Clean Face Wash , and the cutest Butterfly Bath Sponge in pink and purple. When Rhys got home from school, she about flipped her lid. I told her I needed her help in reviewing some products and when she found out what it was she was super pumped. Girls love feeling special and their very own collection of bath items will do the trick. First thing she tried was the Foaming Shampoo. Love, love, love the ease of this product. She has super thick hair and we have to use quite a few pumps, which is fine. I even tried this when I was bathing Griffin last night to see how easily it "suds'd" up and cleaned his hair. He has thick hair as well, I did about 4 pumps. It cleaned his hair really well! If you've never tried hair care that are free of sulfates then you will need to know that they do not really "suds" up like regular soaps. So, don't be alarmed when the shampoo isn't causing a huge bubble mountain on their heads. It is getting it clean and it doesn't need the artificial stuff to get it that way. The foaming shampoo has been great for R. She can pump it easily, which saves me from those "MOOOOOMMMM!" calls from the shower saying she can't get any out or that she needs help. It cleans her hair great! The Butterfly bath sponge was a big hit as soon as she saw it. It is very cute and colorful and just the right size. I like how tightly woven it is, I can not stand when the "pouf"s start to fall apart! She now has her own bath sponge that the boys will definitely not be stealing. As she hits these tween years I am trying to instill in her the care she needs to take in cleaning her body AND her face. As a kid, I know that is not the most important thing on their list but they will thank you for the advice when they are able to avoid breakouts because they clean their face well every night. She really likes the Squeaky Clean Face wash. When she used it for the first time, she came and found me and told me to "feel her face". It felt clean and fresh! She was happy to be doing what older girls do and that makes me happy. These products have definitely been a joy to try out! R loves having all of her girly goodies in the shower....she's now asking for some more items to try out! Sparkle Naturals is always Free Shipping on orders over $30 and I hear that free samples might find their way into orders, how cool is that?! Take my word for it, Sparkle Naturals will be the next new thing that every tween and teen girl will want taking over their bathroom. Wonderful company, great way to "vote" for Eco-friendly products in your home.
