We have a new Julie to add to the Contribution Author list at SahmReviews! When I talked to Julie about whether she would be interested in reviewing California Baby Bubble Bath, she explained that her kids love bubble baths. Seriously, what kid doesn’t? She was able to utilize it during the winter months when opportunities to have outdoor play were few and far between.
I have to say I was excited to try out the bubble bath from California Baby. I love trying new things and I’m a sucker for cute packaging. California Baby does have cute packaging and with a promise of a bubble wand inside I was even more intrigued. More times than not, however, I’ve been burned by cute packaging and novelties.
This time was different. I really liked this product and what’s more, my kids LOVED it. The bubble wand sealed the deal for my kids. I don’t know why no one has ever thought of this before. It was like having a bit of California summertime fun in the middle of our mid-west winter. My kids (4yrs and 18 mos.) could have stayed in the bath for hours playing with the bubbles. And since it’s tear free, they really could have. It was probably the most fun I’ve had giving them a bath too.I know what you’re thinking…that blowing bubbles in the bathroom would leave a sticky mess. But, it didn’t! Maybe it’s because the bubble bath is bio-degradable and not synthetic. Which is also a plus!
I really enjoyed the lavender smell. However, my 4 year old son thought the lavender smell was a bit overwhelming… but once the bubbles came out he got over it quickly.
I have to admit though, I was a bit sticker shocked at the price. At Target and California Baby’s website, this product sells for about $13-$14 for a 13oz bottle. The price wouldn’t be so bad if it lasted a long time, but unfortunately, it doesn’t. The bubble bath is a bit thin and if you like a lot of bubbles in your bath (what kid doesn’t) you have to use quite a bit. Then you use up a lot blowing bubbles with the wand.I won’t say that I’ll never buy it again, but it also won’t be my everyday bubble bath for the kids despite the fact that it’s environmentally friendly and the added fun factor. For us, it will be a great special occasion bubble bath – or even a reward.
Overall, it’s a great product and I highly recommend it if you don’t mind the price-tag. If your kids would enjoy some outdoor bubble fun while inside, then check out California Baby’s website to see the variety of aromatherapy blends. They even sell it by the gallon! Not sold on the bubble bath but love the idea that their products are environmentally (and kid) friendly? California Baby carries a great selection of diaper, massage oils, hair, body and skin care products and more. Gear up for summer with some California Baby non-chemical, tear-free suncare products and bug spray. Be sure to check out their specials or find a store near you.
