Ottilie & Lulu Review and Giveaway

 

Ottilie & Lulu is a natural skin and hair care line created especially for tween girls (ages 7-14) to get them excited about grooming. Deborah Hernan mother of a tween girl noticed that there wasn’t anything on the market especially for her daughter’s young, delicate skin so she applied her background experience as an executive with Revlon and created Ottilie & Lulu . Shortly after launching in 2009, the brand caught the attention of Seventeen Magazine’s Style Blog, and has gotten accolades from Discovery Girls Magazine.

The Ottilie and Lulu line includes face wipes, everyday moisturizer with spf 20, shampoo and body wash, detangler and conditioner (all in one), and a body glow lotion. The products are created with gentle formulations without, Parabens, Phthalates, Sodium Lauryl Sulfates, Mineral Oil or Petroleum by-products. Instead, Ottilie and Lulu offers natural ingredients that are less harsh and more nurturing to younger skin and hair including:

•     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

With 80% of the damage done to skin before the age of 17, it is so important for mothers to help their girls formulate good grooming and skin-care habits.  Many products on the market have harsh chemicals that can lead to allergic reactions or may strip skin of its natural youthful glow the very look we want to help our kids preserve for a long as possible.

Who is Ottilie?

Ottilie’s favorite place to sit is at her mom’s dressing table, watching her get ready.  It always has been.  She loves everything girly especially the lotions and potions in her mom’s bathroom – the way they smell and feel on her skin.  (And sometimes, she likes to try on her mom’s high heels, too!)  Every September she makes friendship bracelets for everyone in her class.  Her valentines are works of art. She loves flowers, sundresses, and pink.  Pink flowers on a sundress … that’s  her idea of heaven.

Who is Lulu?

Lulu is a jeans and t-shirt kind of a gal.  If you can hear Lulu, but can’t see her, she’s probably up the nearest tree. She’s perfected the two minute shower, and she only wears a dress on Thanksgiving, and then only because mom makes her, and she’ll change out of it the minute she can.  And she’ll take a shower, but see above about mom insisting, if you know what I mean… Life’s too short to wear dresses and take long showers or baths, when you could be outside, climbing trees, collecting bugs in jelly jars, and perfecting tricks on your skateboard.

Otillie & Lulu – Review

We received the Feel Good Shampoo/ Bodywash and the Shiny Silky Detangler & Conditioner.

When I received these I thought they would be perfect for Avery, since the highest age was 14. I was wrong. She felt like she was using baby stuff. Avery has been using high end make-up and hair products since she understood what they meant. She watches every you tube video she can find on skin care, hair care, make-up, etc. In case you didn’t know Avery’s ambition in life is to become a cosmetologist and make-up artist. So, after being distressed for a couple of days and trying to actually force Avery to use the products, my brother came to the rescue. His friend has a daughter just the right age ( she just turned 10) and suggested she use them and let me know what she thought.

She loved them! Come to find out she hates to have her hair combed or even messed with. Her mother has used all kinds of detanglers on her hair and none of them helped. Ashleigh has thick, curly hair that hangs in ringlets when dry. I can only imagine what it is like to comb her hair. After a lot of coaxing Michelle got her to try it and they both could not believe how easy it was to comb her hair now. Michelle says that these products are awesome  and Ashleigh loves the shampoo/ body wash because it doesn’t have a little girl smell. It smells more like something her mother would use.

Michelle’s biggest praise was how they were easy on Ashleigh’s hair and skin. Her skin wasn’t dried out and her hair was silky and smooth. Her curls hang beautifully now and they are super shiny. She asked for the website because she is going to order more!

Otillie & Lulu are graciously sponsoring a giveaway for this set! It is super easy to enter! Good luck!
