Healthy Skin for Tweens {Ottilie & LuLu Review}

A momma wants to protect her babies from the time they’re born until forever.  This is why it’s so important to me to select products for my girls that are free from harmful, icky ingredients.  As I mentioned in a previous post, when it comes to the skin, our largest organ, there should be no foolin’ around.  Those harmful chemicals can interfere with hormones and the growing body of a tween.  Ottilie & LuLu is another company that realizes this importance, and offers a line of skin and hair products that are heathy and non-irritating.  Their products are dermatologist, allergy and clinically tested- (but not on animals), and contain anti-oxidants, proteins and botanicals to clean, nourish, and protect tween skin and hair.

Ottilie and Lulu offers a range of easy-to-use products specially formulated for girls 7-14.  Each of these formulas contains anti-oxidants to protect a young girl’s skin from environmental stresses, vitamins to nourish, and enriching botanicals to sooth.

As mothers, you want safe, gentle ingredients in your daughters’ products.  Tween “beauty” should be about cleansing and protecting one’s face, hair and body, not applying irritating glitter, or wearing heavy perfume or strident colours. Clean, healthy, and happy, those are the communication messages our girls should be getting.  They don’t need to be bombarded with beauty standards and imagery that are inappropriate for girls 7-14.  Ottilie & Lulu is the new tween brand, and I have created it just for our girls. And you can’t borrow it … even though you might want to! – Deborah Hernan, Founder Ottilie & LuLu

My oldest daughter has been getting really good at her grooming routine over the past few months, and my youngest is following suit.  They wash before bed, and when they get up in the morning.  Ottilie & LuLu’s Facial wipes have been a big help!  Let’s face it, tweens are still children, they need help, (just don’t let them hear me say that :)), and sometimes the well-meaning wash, ends up not-so-good, when they don’t get all the soap off their skin, or it gets in their eyes.  Clear Skin Face Wipes have been so convenient……all my girlies have to do is gently wipe clean.  They also are great for a quick freshening up after sweaty sport playing.

Ottilie & LuLu also sent their Body Glow Lotion for my girls to try.  The non-greasy formula has a soothing lavender scent, and is perfect for the girls to moisturize with when they get out of the bath or shower.  During the upcoming winter months, I know their skin will appreciate this!

Products aside, Ottilie & LuLu has a cute story line for their website and products which encompass the girlie and tom boy sides of being a girl.  You’ll find sweet little sayings like : “My grandma used to say, ‘horses sweat, men perspire, ladies merely glow.”-Ottilie… cute!
