Friday competition – Halos and Horns

Halos and horns have sent our family  some lovely products to trial.  Here’s what we thought of them 

 Baby bath – my daughter has very sensitive skin so I still use baby products on  her at 3. This can be used as a bubble bath or an in all in one body wash and its hypolallergenic and non drying.  There are no scary chemicals in these products and it made the water and Lisi’s skin feel silky soft . We only needed a tiny bit too so it will last for ages. Lovely stuff.

Zingy orange hair and body wash smelt good enough to eat and my son declared the bath smelt likle a satsuma It is also kind to eys too (always a hit!)  I love that these productrs contain matural condidtioners and plant extrats, I don’t want to empty an entire chemistry lab on my kids heads.


Mango-Melon Mayhem Shampoo and Conditioner is  green and gooey. My kids have pretty wild hair which HAS to be conditioned rsatherrt than doing it twice this get the job done quick as you like and if I pretend its alien slime that smells like mangos it get a good few giggles from my 6 year old son

Also in the range are:  

Berry Burst Shampoo & Detangler: with natural plant-derived conditioners and.

Toothy Fruity Toothpaste: a strawberry flavoured toothpaste for children, with added fluoride to help reduce tooth decay, and free of SLS.  – which my kids refused to try because it didn’t taste like their normal tootchpaste (give me strength). Tasted good to me though!


To win these 5 products for yourself please answer this daft Friday question. If you were a fruit what fruit  would you be and why?

The winner will be picked at random next friday Sept 10th at 4pm. UK entrants only please.
