Getting squeaky clean is totally bubbilicious with Earthwise jungle fruits baby bubble bath. It's gentle enough to use everyday.
Just add two squirts of bubble bath while the tub is filling, then swoosh with your hands to make lots of foam before your little monkey gets in. Finish up with a warm, fuzzy towel.
It's great to see the Earthwise 'baby' range has diversified and added in some more toddler - children friendly products to their range. I have used the baby wash before, and it was nice to be able to keep using the Earth and people friendly Earthwise range with my older children.
They were enamoured with the cute little hippo bottle, and were very keen to try the bubble bath. The product is easy to use, tip it into the running water, so simple my children could do it themselves with a little supervision. The bubbles were gently scented, not overpowering, and they were 'robust' I have found some bubble baths bubble up and then pop just as quickly, taking all the fun out of a bubble bath, this didn't happen with the Earthwise bubble bath.
The saying quality comes with a price does resound here, I could get a much larger quantity of bubble bath for the same amount of money, but I think quality products are worth a little extra. The bubble bath was gentle on my children's skin, and of course this product is gentle on the environment, something we should all be thinking about when we are purchasing chemicals. All in all I think it's a quality product that I would purchase for my family again, and I would give it as a gift to others to introduce them to an new earth and child friendly alternative at bath time.
How cute are the bottles. I love hippos so found them totally cute. When we opened the box my 4 year old (who usually hates baths I might add and we have an argument most nights at bath time) wanted a bath right there and then, unfortunately for him he had already had a bath that night we received the box.
The next night at bath time he asked "mum can I have a bubble bath with my new hippos" he was obviously very excited about the new bath products. After 2 squirts and running the water I didn't even need to slosh the water much with my hand it was already really bubbly. he was very happy with this and got excited to get in.
It has a really nice fruity smell, it was a nice smell and reasonably strong but not too strong (it made the whole bathroom smell delicious). The bottle isn't really all that big for $7 so probably wouldn't buy the bubble bath as my first choice on my budget and the amount I would have to use to get the desired bubbles. He smelt delicious after the bath and still noticeable in the morning which is much more pleasant than his normal sweaty feet .
I found that it left lots of slippery suds in the bath once the plug was pulled but luckily they washed down after a bit of sloshing fresh water and a good excuse to clean the bath. The colours of the bottles were nice and vibrant and easy to read, and easy to follow instructions. The cap was easy to open with one hand and closed easy with one hand. I even dropped one of the bottles and sometimes with other bath product bottles the lid cracks or leaks on the floor, with these bottles nothing leaked or cracked. I was happy, they are robust.
Well first of all I must say when these were popped up to review I jumped at the chance as they are cute hippos and the kids saw them on the computer and really wanted hippo bath stuff is what they called it. My kids have been having showers mainly but when getting this bubble bath my son really wanted a bubble bath, as my daughter wasnt well he got it all to himself and was so excited about this.
I read the directions at the back to see what it recommends on the amount to put into a bath, 2 squirts is what it says and they swish it around with your hand. I added 2 squirts under the running water and did the trick with my hand and it seemed to bubble up really fast without my hand, my hand gave it more of a bubble blast. The smell of jungle fruits actually smelt good enough to eat. My son climbed in and started playing right away, moving around and making more bubbles as he went, he loved this and was laughing his head off, getting it over his face and not one tear, normally bubbles would go on his face and he would cry they would hurt.
I was amazed that the bubbles stayed in the bath the WHOLE bath time, normally bubble baths are just baths with a skim of bubbles on top by the time they are finished and out. I drained the bath and left it, after 4 hours I went back in and the bubbles were still going strong in the bottom of the tub so that was 11pm. When I awoke in the morning at 7am the bubbles were still there but its a smaller amount. later on in the day I went back to find the bubbles were gone but they left a reside that I didn't like, it was left on the toys that I pulled out of the bath the night before and on the bathtub itself. The reside felt like soapy wet toilet paper to me. Guess its a small price to pay for my kids to enjoy bubble baths to clean it each time.
Overall I think this product is great, the bubbles last for ages and its so much fun, doesn't hurt the eyes. The price I feel is a little high though as I wouldn't pay $7.50 for a 275ml bottle even if it is a cute bottle, but I might change my mind depending on how long this mixture lasts. I do love earthwise products
My kids LOVE bubble baths (so does mummy) so we're always keen to give a bubble bath a good run for it's money.
The good thing to note is that is doesn't take much bubble mixture, but I would still prefer either a lower price tag or a slightly bigger bottle. In saying that it has a lovely smell, that lingers in the bathroom a good couple of hours after the bath has been drained and the kids are all tucked up into bed.
I found it took quite a bit of swishing to get a decent amount of bubbles in the bath, but the bubbles lasted a good long time and when the kids hopped out of the bath, their fingers and toes like mini prunes, there were just as many bubbles at the end as there were at the start!
I love the hippo bottle that this came in, and I know my kids did too, so that will be hanging around for quite some time. This makes a wonderful amount of bubbles and has a great smell but at the price I think I shall only buy it once in a while as a treat.
Having been completely converted to Earthwise we have been using the Earthwise body wash on my girls and this makes a fantastic bubble bath for the girls so I was excited to see what Earthwise had come up with in their baby bubble bath. Well firstly of course the container is a winner. Miss two immediately gathered up her hippos and said "mine" and has spent many hours already playing with the containers. Because the hippos are different colours she knows which is the bubbles, which is the wash and which is the shampoo so races for the bubbles as soon as we say bath time!
We have used this every night for a week now and the bottle is almost empty but I suspect that is because Daddy is a little heavy handed with the dispensing. I suspect that it would have lasted much longer if it was me dispensing every night!!
I have had a couple of baths with this and the first thing I noticed (well actually second as the first thing you notice is how many bubbles there are!!) is that the bubbles taste okay and that getting the bubbles on your face, in your eyes and in your mouth won't result in a huge crying fit! Not once have my girls complained about these bubbles. The smell is lovely and we have all had some nice relaxing baths.
What I did find interesting though is that the bubbles are so well formed (the bubbles don' dissipate over time as you find with some other products) that they still stay in the bath when the water has gone. It now means I have to properly wash out my bath every night! I really like this bubble bath even if it does mean a little extra cleaning and can definitely recommend it.
I haven't seen many bubble baths on the market for babies. Often baby bath products consist of milks or other low sud formulas. While these are okay, once your baby reaches a certain age they want something engaging in the water. The low sud bubble baths do okay, but often the bubbles last all of 10 minutes.
Into the bath, I added two squirts of the Earthwise bubble bath liquid. Like the bottle suggested, I gave the water a swish as well. The bubbles came up quickly and grew bigger and bigger. I was surprised by this. The fruity smell of the bubble bath was really evident and lingered which was great too.
When I put my daughter into the water, the bubbles towered over her. She enjoyed running her hands through the bubbles and searching through for toys. Once she had, had enough there was plenty of bubble action for my other daughter to jump into as well.
Once the bath was over, I pulled the plug. Two hours later, I went back into the bathroom and there were still a few bubbles going in the tub. We have had a few baths with this since, and I have found I don't really need as much as I used the first time for an effective bubble bath. My kids love it and it smells so good. Will definitely buy this one again.
It was so exciting getting to try this out as my son had never had a bubble bath before. I'm sure we all have memories of our bubble baths when we were kids so I couldn't wait for my son to experience his first ever bubble bath. I think now we are going to have to have bubble baths every night as he loved it and had the most giggly bath time ever.
I poured a little bit into the bath when running the water and swirled it around and boy did it create a lot of bubbles. The bath was absolutely full of the most foamy bubbles. I placed Cai in the bath and waited for his reaction, at first he looked puzzled but he was soon reaching out and touching all the bubbles and picking up handfulls. Of course he had to taste some too for the whole sensory experience!
We played so many games while in the bath, including making bubble beards, and picking up the foam and blowing the bubbles about which was causing fits of laughter. We must of been playing for quite some time because I suddenly realised the water was nearly cold we had been so busy with our fun. And even though the water was cold Cai was not impressed about having to get out of the bath.
When he was dried and dressed he came for big cuddles and he smelt so good, the jungle fruits scent is long lasting and it is very sweet but not overpowering it is quite mild and definitely reminds me of a baby. The other thing is when I went into the bathroom hours later there were still traces of bubbles in the bottom of the bath so boy are these bubbles long lasting.
