TruKid {Review + Giveaway}

While choosing green-friendly products for myself and the house is high on the priority list, doing so for my little man is even more important. The saying goes something like "What you put on the body goes in the body," and the saying rings especially true for little boys who put everything in their mouths!

I'm pleased to present to you TruKid, Healthy skincare for kids. TruKid products are natural, non-toxic, and ALWAYS free of parabens, phthalates, gluten, BPA, SLS, petroleum, fragrances, and any harsh chemicals.


I had the pleasure of trying out TruKid's Sunny Days SPF 30+ Face and Body Stick and their Dancing Hair Detangler.

First, the Sunny Days sunscreen stick.

What I love: 
  • Only contains natural ingredients and minerals, no chemicals.
  • UVA/UVB broad spectrum protection.
  • Water-resistant
  • Easy to slip in a purse or pocket, no leaking sunscreen bottles.
  • Contains no coral-damaging ingredients, making this stick safe for our oceans and coral reefs!
  • AMAZING orange/tangerine scent. No more nasty sunscreen smell on you or your kids!
Studies have shown that approx. 4000-6000 metric tons of sunscreen washes off the bodies of swimmers each year and ends up in coral reef environments. There are many chemicals in standard sunscreens that have been shown to bleach coral even in trace amounts. In addition, "Four commonly found sunscreen ingredients can awaken dormant viruses in the symbiotic algae called zooxanthellae that live inside reef-building coral species." (source: National GeographicThe best ways to prevent this (aside from going sans-sunscreen) are to make sure you use a water-resistant sunscreen and use reef-safe natural sunscreens, like Sunny Days!

What I didn't like:
  • It's suggested to reapply every 40 minutes, which can be bothersome with active little ones.
Next, the Dancing Hair Detangler.

What I love:
  • Non-sticky, lightweight formula.
  • Made with natural and organic ingredients.
  • Wonderful, light citrusy scent.
  • Works well on hair of all ethnicities.
  • I've found that it works wonders for static! Spray a few pumps into your palms, rub together, and comb through hair to tame any flyaway frizzies or fuzzies.
What I didn't like:
  • Nothing! This product is absolutely wonderful as-is.
TruKid not only makes great natural products, they also make healthy habits easy and fun to learn for kids!
