Mama Reviews It: Coco & Tini Bath Product Giveaway!

If you've been reading this blog from it's start back in Summer '09, you might have caught on that I'm a girl who loves good products and that I also love to have baths. My love of bathing has trickled down to my son and his nightly baths have become part of our bedtime routine. I was pretty tickled to be asked to review some locally made naturally pure bath products for Ben. I think my actual words were, 'bring it on!'.

I was sent the complete line of Vancouver's Coco & Tini bath line. This included a shampoo, conditioning detangler, bubble bath and bath wash. Part of the appeal to these products is their fantastic packaging, and Coco & Tini does a great job with their kid friendly cute designs. Right away Ben loved the animals on the four bottles and he was pretty excited to bring them into the tub with him that evening.



All of the products have the same soft fresh scent and are so gentle that they're perfect to use on a baby's delicate skin. When testing out the bubble bath we noticed that the bubble bath was frothy and the tub was full of bubbles, but the bubbles did disappear rather fast. This is because Coco & Tini products don't use the icky stuff like sulphates or surfactants that tend to be used to keep bubbles hanging around. Sounds good to me! I like the idea that these products are naturally pure and free from dyes and harsh detergents. We lathered Ben's hair with their shampoo and I was pretty impressed at how soft his hair was afterwards.





Now for the fun stuff! 1 winner will receive the complete bath line from Coco & Tini!

Now all I want to do is smell it for myself! ;o) I too am trying to cut back on all the harsh, nasty things added to our cleansing products. I love all the cute pictures on the bottles, perfect for kids. I like the fact that you said Ben's hair was so soft after a wash. I would assume this product is only available in Vancouver hey? I am missing out on a lot of cool things living way out here! ;o) Keep up the great work Andrea.

I have a couple of boys who love baths too. The more bubbles the better, especially for making beards. :)

Wow! Thanks for the fun here!
Fingers crossed!
I am sure bottles as cute as those would be the perfect distraction from the dreaded hair washing and conditioning that has become quite a chore for me and my biggest gal!

ALL OF US MOMS AND GRANDMOMS KNOW THERE IS NOTHING AS SWEET AS THE SMELL OF A FRESHLY BATHED AND LOTIONED CHILD. WHEN YOU GET OLDER YOU MISS THE CUDDLES AND THE GIGGLES AND THE AROMAS. TRUDY

I love their labels! My son has trouble with eczema but I bet Coco & Tini wouldn't bother him!

Oh I love the values of this company and that it's Canadian. Thank you for introducing it. I'm a sucker for great packaging and this company has me hook, line and sinker.

These look wonderful! I love the cute little creatures on the bottles. My two older girls love having baths in our deep, big tub together and bubbles are, of course, essential. :)

In our household, baby Jackson loves baths but so do Mummy and Daddy! Since Jackson's birth we've become much more conscious about what we put on our skin ... way to go Coco&Tini! And Canadian too! YAY!

Having grown up on the coast, and now living in the prairies . . . I so miss the lifestyle there - all the funky, organic, natural things that emerge from all the creative/artsy people that live there. SO want to try these products on my little guy!

I'm a Vancouver local and I've never heard of Coco and Tini. I love all-natural bath stuff but it can be difficult to find.

My girls love their nightly bath ritual too, Andrea. And their favorite nights are the ones we declare "bubble bath nights". I'd love to try out these products, they look great. And love the fact that they're natural and don't have the "icky" ingredients in them. And they're so cute!

I know who I can give this to! Nice prize Andrea!
(if I win though, please contact Sarah as i'm away)

Looks like a great product line. I would especially love to try the detangler as my daughter's curly hair can get a little crazy.

April 13, 2011 at 10:54 AM  
Susan said...

Although Tate is presently losing her present baby hair...teehee..love to try it out!:)))

Sidenote: We really need the detangler ;) *lol*

I don't think we need the detangler as much as Theo (Harriet)...but Avery's hair growth had kicked into gear. I usually buy Weleda products but am totally interested in trying a new product out! Supporting a local company is way cool!
