Ok, well, let’s move onto something a little less depressing, shall we? I’ve been meaning to post about Little Twig. I bought some of their body wash for my son, to try out. I’ve had my eye on Little Twig’s products for awhile now, and quite frankly, while I still like California Baby’s products, I’m getting kind of sick of lavender, and I find that he smells like a wet dog after using it. So I sought out for something a little more fresh and picked up some of the Baby Wash in Tangerine Rosemary. Also, the good folks at Little Twig were kind enough to send me some of the lavender, lemon and tea tree body milk.

The baby wash is heavenly. While it actually has some lavender in it, I can’t really tell, and it smells fresh and makes my son smell more like a clean fresh little boy, instead of your grandma. I love the crispness of it, and it foams nicely. I only wish it came in bigger sizes, with a pump, because the little bottles go quickly.

The body milk I was kind of leary about, given that the main ingredient is lavender, but I was really pleasantly surprised. It’s not overpowering in the slightest, and I love the way this stuff goes on. It’s not thick, or greasy, and it goes on nice and smooth, and absorbs quickly. I also love that I can put it on my hands once and my dry hands don’t chew it up and spit it out and then ask for more. I put it on once and it seems to last through at least a couple of washings. I used it on my son before bed one night, and his dry patches were gone and his skin was still soft the next day. As a result of him being in a plagio helmet, we were needing to give him a bath nightly to keep his head clean and while I would only soap his body every other night, to avoid his skin getting too dry, it was kind of inevitable. Little Twig’s body milk gets a nice soft thumbs up from me. I’m keeping the lotion for myself. He can keep the baby wash… maybe.

All of Little Twig’s products are made with organic ingredients, contain no phthalates, sulfates, parabens, PEG’s, dioxanes or propylene glycol. Phew, that’s a long list.

Another bonus that I love about this company is that they have a great recycling program. Simply send your empty Little Twig bottles back to them, and they’ll give you 30% off your next order. I think this is absolutely fantastic. What girl doesn’t love a discount, and saving the environment at the same time? It’s like being Wonder Woman, without the uncomfortable leotard.

You can find Little Twig’s products at limited Whole Food’s stores, as well as direct from them. And if you’re like me, and need instant gratification, use their store locator.
