SproutBaby - Bath Time Goes Green - GIVEAWAY!

The folks at SproutBaby were kind enough to send me a sample of their Playful Foaming Wash, a product from the Episencial Skin Care line inspired by The Very Hungry Caterpillar’s favorite fruits from The World of Eric Carle. They asked me to try it out and let you know what I thought. Also? One lucky reader will get to try it too!I used the Foaming Wash on my toddlers and also on myself. Here's what I thought:

Good:
- I loved the scent - like fresh oranges!
- It's made without synthetic chemicals or fragrances.
- Packaged in recycled and sustainable materials - phthalate and BpA free.
- Rinses super clean really easily (like one or two rinses versus three to five with the normal baby wash I use).

Bad:
- My kids didn't care for the scent.
- While the rinsing clean quickly and easily was nice for my kids (toddler boys with very short hair), for me it rinsed out and left my hair and skin feeling a bit on the dry side.
- It doesn't lather as much as my normal baby wash or shampoo.
- It's a little bit pricey for a budget conscience mama like me ($8.99/8oz)

OVERALL:
- I liked it. I don't think I would use it as shampoo for me on a regular basis, but I would definitely use it on my kids and as a body wash for myself. The fact that it's made without synthetic chemicals or fragrances is a BIG plus, but the frugal shopper in me balks (a little bit) at the price.
