My First Giveaway! Episencial Sweet Dreams Bubble Bath

I actually contacted EcoMom after I won a case of Sprout baby food on someone else's blog. Lydia (who is now 7 months old) loved it, so I asked EcoMom if I could try another product and do a review/giveaway on my blog. How excited was I when the Episencial Sweet Dreams Bubble Bath arrived in my mailbox??

Here are some of the things that initially struck me about this product before we even tried it:
1. The bottle is made out of recycled plastic that is phthalate and BPA free. Love it!
2. The ingredients on the back are not only listed, but they are described as well. For example, it says "Prunus Persica," an ingredient I did not recognize, but after that it said "Organic Peach." It makes me feel so much better to actually know what is in a product I am using on my child. 
3. It has Eric Carle illustrations on the package - How cute is that?? 
4. I opened the bottle to smell it, and the scent is amazing - like fresh lavender and peaches!

Now,  I must say, Lydia loves her baths. Probably her favorite time of the day. She "outgrew" her baby bathtub at 6 months because she would always try to sit up and move around inside it. I tried the regular bathtub, and she loved it (with very close monitoring, obviously). However, she does have mild eczema, so I am cautious about using products with fragrances on her skin. No problems here! After her bath, her skin was still moist and irritation-free. I noticed EcoMom also carries some products specifically for children with different skin conditions, which is great.

So here's what Lydia had to "say" about her new bubble bath:

I learned that it allows you to save 15% on everything on their site and that the membership is for one year :)

Not sure it would be worth it for me because I don't tend to order things online unless I have to and cannot find them in stores, but they seem to have pretty high standards for quality so I am checking them out now!

Jennifer said...

BTW, I know this isnt an "entry" but I love your blog design...how did you do it? Do you use a free service? I have a blog that I have been working on but not really live yet and I don't really like the templates. I also use blogger but I want to add buttons and can't figure out how?
