I received products from these shops in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
As a mother, one of the most important decisions I can make for Brynn is what I put on and into her body. That is why I am very picky about what she eats, and what I use for her bath and body products. I do my best to choose products with no harmful ingredients in them that also work really well. And as crazy as it sounds, they’re kind of hard to find! So here are my top 3 picks for the best children’s bath and body products.
Grace Mabel was created by Amanda, a teacher and lover of wellness, health, and everything natural. Amanda felt a strong desire to get back to the basics and STOP contaminating our children’s bodies with harsh chemicals. She wanted to use simple, safe, and all-natural products in the hopes of starting our next generation off on a toxin-free journey. A little over a year ago after having her daughter, in a little town about 45 minutes outside of Seattle, WA., Grace Mabel was born out of Amanda’s desire to create natural products, and her love of educating and assisting others.
Grace Mabel offers body wash and shampoo (2 in 1), lotions, cuddle rubs, and lotion bars. I was desperately searching for a natural body wash and shampoo to replace the Honest Co. brand I was using previously. I found their product didn’t lather well, leading us to using more than we would with other brands. I also didn’t enjoy the smell. Grace Mabel’s body wash and shampoo lathers well, and comes with a fantastic pump to make it super easy to use in the tub. One pump is enough for B’s hair AND body, and the blend of lemongrass, eucalyptus, and lavender essential oils smells lovely.
The Mint Cuddle Rub is a great product for the Winter time or for babies with sensitive skin. It contain plant-based ingredients to help hydrate and protect baby’s skin. Rich in coconut, olive, grape seed, and jojoba oils, it creates a moisture barrier that, combined with the gentle drops of peppermint essential oil, soothes and prevents dry and itchy skin. The Tender Tulip lotion is great for nightly use before bed because not only does it hydrate baby’s skin, but the gentle blend of lemongrass, eucalyptus, and lavender essential oils calm and soothe your little one.

BEBE DE LUXE
Bébé de Luxe was created by another talented Amanda, Amanda Toth! Amanda is a Canadian and self-proclaimed ‘crunchy’ mama who created Bébé de Luxe while on maternity leave. The first batch she made were Christmas gifts for friends and family who loved them and encouraged her to embark on her journey as a small business owner. On top of owning her own business, Amanda also works full-time as a Senior Paralegal at a large law firm in Vancouver! Life is busy, but she likes to say she is a mom first, wife, business owner, and paralegal. One of her secrets to getting things done like a BOSS is that she happily enlists help wherever she can in order to get everything done and stay sane, like hiring a house cleaner, and having her husband take over the cooking duties.
Bébé de Luxe Coconut and Oat Milk Bath is a luxurious and soothing bath product for mom and baby that is natural, vegan, and free of toxins, parabens, and carcinogens (Amanda calls these the “nasties”). It is made with 100% USDA certified organic food-grade ingredients! Add 1 – 3 scoops of the milk bath to warm running water. It is meant to replace soap as it has natural antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antimicrobial properties which will get you or your baby clean. Just soak a washcloth in the bath water and use that to wash. You can even wash a baby’s hair with the wet washcloth too! Or you can use shampoo and rinse with tap water towards the end of the bath.
The Baby Bar is made with organic-practice ingredients including olive oil, cocoa butter, and coconut milk to cleanse baby’s sensitive skin on those days you need a little more than the Coconut and Oat Milk Bath, like after playing in the mud or a super hot day!

B has curls, and her curls get tangled pretty bad. Up until now I haven’t had anything to help her with that besides some water mixed with a regular commercial detangler, and I really do prefer using more natural products on her. Because of that I rarely used it, and she hated having her hair brushed. Then Tangled Tantrum was recommended to me! I love the Detangling and Conditioning Spray. It has no alcohol or parabens which makes me feel a LOT better about using it. It also smells INCREDIBLE, like creamy coconuts, or a day at the beach. I’m so obsessed with it that I even use it myself sometimes. Not only does it detangle, but it repairs split ends and leaves hair looking healthy! Pro-vitamin B5 adds shine and conditions while wheat amino acids strengthen, and aloe and chamomile soothe.
The Chaos Control Smoothing Serum is awesome for when I put her hair in piggies or a pony to help me tame the fly-aways. The Keratin infused serum seals the hair cuticle and controls the frizz, visibly improving the appearance and balance of the hair immediately. The serum tames wild curls making them shiny and bouncy again, while remaining soft, not crunchy!
